And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. Exo 14:15-16
It is your responsibility to go forward and refuse the past.
If you are standing in grace and the past comes for you, your vision or your dream, all you need to do is to go forward.
When you hear again those negative voices in your head, trying to disturb or distract you, make it your business to go forward.
When you see those mocking eyes and hear the taunting voices saying “what are they doing” Neh 4:3-5, go forward.
Go forward with your rod (your significant endowment, skill or ability already dedicated to God) aimed ahead and a way will open up where there is no one. As you go forward, the past will get swallowed in your pathway to the future.
Stay mindful of the future and as you do just that, God will separate between you and the past; your direction will become the defeat for the past; you will find your way forward; what opens up for you will swallow every harassment from the past.
Your real battles are always ahead and not behind. You will only be able to face the future in readiness to punish every disobedience standing in your way, when you have been completely obedient at conquering every trace of the past bugging you. You can do that by practically leaving them where they belong – behind.
