Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13
Literally leave yesterday behind. When I say yesterday, I do not mean the past in general but the disappointments, mistakes, and failures of the previous day. Sometimes the disappointments, mistakes, and failures of yesterday can stifle today’s creativity and productivity. Lamentations 3:22-23 notes that the LORD’s mercies are new every morning which means that there is a fresh new batch of mercies to start today and erases the mistakes and failures of yesterday. God is always looking at your future and wants you to move beyond yesterday’s disappointments, mistakes, and failures so leave yesterday behind!
