How often do you think of times gone by, wishing you could go back and do a few things differently? Or do you look back with longing to circumstances that were a lot more comfortable? God has blessed us with a capacity to remember our past, but He doesn't want us dwelling there.
TODAY is a glorious gift from the Lord! Every minute of it!
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it -
Psalm 118:24 ESV.
Christians don't need to look backward with either regret or desire. And we certainly don't need to be stagnant, allowing yesterday to dictate what happens today. Every new day is filled with tremendous potential for growth and change.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new - 2 Corinthians 5:17.
