Moving Forward In Christ
Happy New Year everyone! 2019 is now upon us all. We have all been blessed to see another year.
The one thing that the New Year reminds us of is that no matter what happens in life you have to keep moving in one direction, forward. Time doesn’t allow you to go back and make different decisions. We can only look back at great memories with family and friends or to learn from mistakes and teachable moments. Regardless of it all, we have to turn around. Look at what is around us and move forward.
Moving Forward is a difficult thing to do sometimes. We can get satisfied with where we are. We can dwell on the past too much. How can we concentrate on our purpose and destiny if we are constantly worried about what has happened in our past whether it was yesterday, last week, last month, last year, or 10 to 30 years ago? Let it go so you can live the life that God has in store for you.
Moving Forward also means that we have to trust in the Lord and have Faith when we may be afraid to do it. As long as the Lord is directing and leading, we should not fear. We have to Focus on staying connected to God. And moving forward in our purpose. Matthew 14:28-29 (NKJV) states:And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.We have to get out of the boat into the treacherous waters of the unknown. In the same way, if the Lord has opened up the doors to new things for our lives, then we have to step out of the boat, focus on those new things from God, and give God the praise for helping us to walk on the water of the unknown to the success and life He wants us to have.
So, let us Move Forward in Christ and walk through the door in order for 2019 to be the year that we show our faith in the Lord and we live the abundant life that is promised to us.
