Looking forward…

I am going to take a brief break from Psalm 119 (will get back to it very soon) to examine from a scriptural viewpoint something that is very important for us as children of the most high God to do: look forward and not backward. Satan would love to keep us a prisoner to the sins we have committed and therefore render us totally ineffective for God. The Bible tells us what to do with those past sins. Confess, repent and be done with it. Let’s look at some Scripture that offers us a path to freedom from guilt and condemnation:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. -1 John 1:9

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. -Isaiah 43:18-19

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. -Phil. 3:13-14
