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.
Did you hear that?
You are a new creation!
The old has passed away!
All things have become new!
I think it's time to do a happy dance! And while we dance, we can sing our praise to God for the wonderful day ahead. And as long as we're singing, we should do it very loud so the enemy can hear it too.
