When God is bringing about something new in the earth and in our lives, an essential part of how we must respond is to allow Him to change our thoughts and ideas that are based on our experiences so far. Instead of looking for God's plans to fit into what we know and are comfortable with, we need to look forward with a willing and open heart as He calls us to partner with Him in bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to the Earth! Do not be hindered by what lies behind, but reach forward by faith to what is coming.
"Brothers and sisters, I do not regard myself as having taken hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14 NASB
