Do you feel like God is calling you into a new path? Do you find yourself afraid to follow the new path? As I reflect on this thought, I keep hearing “you are mine.” spoken to my spirit. In Isaiah 43 God tells the children of Israel “forget the past, you are mine, I’m taking you to new beginnings. He told them He would turn deserts into rivers. They were weary and afraid, they couldn’t let go of their pasts shames. In Philippians 3 the Bible says “ forget what was behind, embrace what is before.”
Embrace the newness that God has for you. Let go of the past hurts from your life. Let go of the pain from infertility. Let go of the pain from that broken marriage. Let go of all the hurts from your past. Let go of all the shame you are feeling. He doesn’t want you to focus on your past. He has new things for you. He wants to make your deserts flow with living water. Embrace the new path He is leading you toward. Don’t be afraid, He is with you. He has new good things in store for you. Let go of the past. Look towards the newness of the future He has designed. New better things.
“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,”
Philippians 3:13 ESV
