Far too many folks are looking over their shoulder at their past, as if they could go back and change things. The Lord spoke something years ago, “if you live in the past you will have no future”. So, we have a past and we have a future, but what about the present? We are to live in the present in such a way that we have a good future. This incident is based on God’s Holy Word, “we reap tomorrow what we sow today”. If your future means nothing to you, you will sow any ole thing. Tomorrow never dies, it will come whether you want it or not, whether you’re prepared or not tomorrow is coming.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brothers, I don’t know everything, but I do this one thing, I forget the past and reach for all the things in my future. I stretch towards the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Everything in our past can become an anchor that holds us at a standstill, even the good things we have had. I knew a lady that had a supernatural encounter with the Lord, it’s all she talked about for years. Does God limit us with manifestations of His glory? No, we limit ourselves when we don’t know Him as we ought to. I realize every day will not be sound and perfect but God’s goodness can be seen every day. The devil tries to obscure our vision by flooding us with programs, but a wise man can see through all of it. We can see everything but what do you choose to focus on? When I was a young boy my family went through Yellowstone park, we stopped at the cliffs that stand high over the Yellowstone river, everyone is pointing to the raw beauty. But my brother and I were mesmerized by a spider in its web, we were too immature to see what we should have seen.
Luke 10:23 And Jesus said to His disciples, blessed are the eyes that see the things that you see.
God is the Word and the Word became flesh and revealed Himself to all men, but few could see Him as He was. God published a book documenting everything any man needs to know about God, despite all this information most men are ignorant of the one they need more than any. Their minds are adrift in the waters of uncertainty struggling to find their identity. Jesus openly displayed the Father to them and they couldn’t see Him, no man can have a worthwhile future without the Lord Jesus. Because of the faith that comes from hearing the Word, we are blessed because we see what the disciples see.
Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your understanding be enlightened, that you may know the hope of His calling, and the riches of your inheritance in Him.
If Paul prayed for the church to have this revelation then God has been offering this light to whosoever will take it! Every day of the world we ought to be looking to receive something from the Lord, it’s our heritage after all. Because of what the Lord spoke to me today, I look forward to tomorrow.
Psalms 68:19 Bless the Lord who daily loads us with benefits.
Today, I have benefits, tomorrow I will have benefits, because tomorrow never dies.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.
YEAR OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
