“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me.”
God is constantly calling us to higher places in Him. He wants us to know Him more. He wants us to know His ways, walk in His ways, and experience His victory.
How do you press forward? In order to press forward towards your calling, you have to let go of the weight of the past. You let go by forgiving and choosing not to dwell on things that can hold you back. It’s lighten our load, so that you can rise higher. That even means to let go of the good as well as the bad. “Good” can also be the very thing that keeps you from “Great.”
We let go by forgiving and choosing not to dwell on things that can hold us back. When you do this you will start pressing forward and upward in every area of your life.
