We’re 15 days into the New Year. How are your goals for 2020 going? Are you still pursuing them? Or have you forgotten about them already? Don’t quit!
Sometimes while you are trying to pursue your goals and dreams, the enemy starts reminding you of your past to discourage you. Suddenly the pain of divorce, past weaknesses and failures, bankruptcies, mistakes and tragedies creep into your memory to depress you and make you feel you can’t do it. Before you know it, you feel unworthy and not good enough.
Today’s scripture is an admonition from God. Forget the past things. God is doing a new thing in your life. You may be feeling you’re in the wilderness of despair and a desert of failures; but guess what? God is sending hope your way! He promised to make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
Are you holding on to past hurts and failures that are crippling you from pursuing your goals and dreams? God is asking you today to forget them. He’s making a way out of an impossible situation. Do you not perceive it?
