You can’t walk forwards looking backwards!

In this age and culture I have never met so many people basing their future on the one-off bad experiences of the past.

Therefore they lock themselves down and don’t forge forward in any way!  No decisions, no action, no traction!

I once had a guy tell me stoutly  “I will never buy a Chevy Malibu ever again!”   He had had a terrible experience 20 years before.  But thinking the new model has anything to do with the design that existed 20 years ago is . . . just asinine and without any rational merit!

    Isaiah 43:18-19  (NIV)
     18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
     19 See, I am doing a new thing!
     Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
     I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

So why do so many Christians predict their future based on their past?

Because Fear has ruled and is still ruling, that’s why!

Can you imagine anyone navigating their life journey well walking backwards into their future, looking backwards?  How weird does it sound? How easy would they be to trip up!

So it comes down to what voice we are going to listen to.  The voice of God, or . . . the voice of Fear.  Make a choice – and remember, 2 Timothy 1:7 describes “Fear” as a spirit – so it’s not actually a part of you, it’s a living spiritual entity telling you how to navigate your life.  Not good at all!

Forget the former things!

God is amazing!!!
