John 7:17-18 ” If anyone chooses to do God’s Will, he will find out whether My teaching comes from God or whether I speak on My own. He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the One who sent Him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about Him.”

With only a day left of 2021, I find this quote from Oswald Chambers very appropriate, “Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been.” We will never experience God’s Will if we refuse to let go of the past. For choosing His Will over ours, when we’re forever looking over our shoulder at the past, is difficult if not just plain impossible to do. It’s like being tied to the dock…and if we don’t cut the line ourselves – God may use a storm to sever the mooring for us. So examine what might be holding you back from doing God’s Will today. It might be long held on to anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness…it may be fear of the unknown…it may be spiritual apathy. Regardless, today is a good day to say “Yes” to moving forward in God’s Will for your life. For it’s only when we choose to do God’s Will, and let the past to the past, can we truly experience all that God has for us.
