THREE DECLARATIONS THAT WILL ALIGN YOU WITH YOUR FUTURE

by Eddie Lawrence
 
Philippians 3:12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

I.  I MUST NOT BECOME COMPLACENT WHERE I AM! (v12a)
-None of us have arrived yet, so we must keep changing.
-Complacency will stall you, cause you to struggle, and silence your heart cry for God.
 
II. . I MUST LET GO OF THE PAST!
(v13b)
-Many times our future is hindered  by our ties to the past.
-Some people try to drive forward by looking in the rear view mirror. This is the shortcut to the ditch.
-The past is the place that grudges, bitterness, and unhealed wounds are anchored in. They all will hold you back.
 
III. I MUST KEEP PRESSING ON TOWARD CHRIST! (v12b, 13c, 14)
-A consistent pressing toward Jesus is to be our aim and drive.
-He holds our future in his hands.
-When you press into him, you are experiencing your glorious future.
