I heard it said, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is not promise, and today is a present.” We have a tendency to spend too much time relishing on the past. For some, the past has anchored their ships at the port of life. For others, their ominous past and falsely perceived hopeless future impedes in living a full and victorious life in Christ Jesus. Here is some OT advice found in Isaiah 43:18, ” “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” Perhaps the prophet understood that you can’t start the next chapter in life if you keep reliving the last one. In the NT, Paul in Philippians 3:13 mentioned the painstaking effort it takes to forget about his past and what a past he had (Acts 22). God doesn’t remind us of our past because He prefers to propel us to our future! You can’t undo your past but that doesn’t mean you have to take out a 30yr mortgage to stay there. You can move forward to the next chapter of life in Christ with confidence knowing that He causes all things to work together for your good and His glory (Rms 8:28).
