Beloved, you are at your best when you live beyond your past, when you do not allow your past to tie you down.

SCRIPTURE: …but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are at your best when you do not allow your history to become your misery.

Sometime ago, a man by the name William Carey worked for eight years translating the Bible into different Indian languages. After so much labour in that endeavour, the printing press caught fire and his translations got burnt; everything disappeared overnight. People expected him to cry. They asked him what he was going to do after such a disaster. He said that the fire has done two things to him: first, the fire has burnt off the interpretations that were wrong, and second, the fire has also given him and his team the wide publicity they would not have gotten.

He worked at it again and came up with better translations within a shorter period of time because he refused to allow a setback to become his grave yard. He operated at his best because he decided to live beyond his past.

Beloved, you are at your best when you live beyond your past, when you do not allow your past to tie you down.

Daniel was a slave in a strange land but he did not allow his slavery to tamper with his destiny (Daniel 1:1-6). You are at your best when you do not allow your history to become your misery.

In addition, Daniel was a man who lived the life of purpose. He refused to live an aimless life. He also decided to take a stand with God both publicly and privately.

Beloved, determine to uphold these principles and no devil can stop you from living at your best, in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: You are at your best when you do not allow your history to become your misery.
