Word for February by Doug Addison
Let go of the past
It is time to let go of the past and press forward into what God is calling us to for 2021 and beyond.
… But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13–14 NIV
The Lord is saying it is time to forget all the disappointments—politically, the pandemic and all the pain of 2020—and press on towards what is ahead.
We all have the work of the Kingdom to do, and the plan of the enemy is to distract you from this. The Lord is releasing plans and strategies for you personally and for cities and nations.
We need to get our eyes on the prize! The Lord is calling us to rise above the swirl of confusion, fear and violence that is ruling the airways and streets.
Trust the Lord Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5–6 NIV
When God does something new, it is sometimes outside of our current understanding. This is why we need to ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding.
The Lord is making a way for you, and it will require moving forward by faith. Watch for your pathway to open and things to become more clear in March.
A new path is opening
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11 NIV
It is time to step into joy and the presence of the Lord in the midst of the storm that is still here.
Watch for the path the Lord has for you to open over the next months.
