When is it Good to Look Back?

In general I’m not a fan of looking back.

Forget the past and press on is usually my motto…

Philippians 3:13-14

“…but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”

With my birthday coming this week, I find myself looking back, thinking about the last year and reminiscing my life up to this point.  Although, focusing on the past isn’t usually helpful, there are some lifetime gems waiting to be found when we take a glance back every once and a while.

Take Time To Remember

  • The Life Lessons God Has Already Taught You
  • The Testimonies And Victories God Has Given to You Personally
  • The Blessings God Has Showered Over You
  • The Salvation and Forgiveness Of Christ

Isaiah 46:9

“Remember the things I have done in the past.  For I alone am God!  I am God, and there is none like me.”

Remembering how faithful God has been to us in the past gives us hope to face all the uncertainty of our future with faith and not fear.
