Leaving The Withdrawn
Leaving The Withdrawn.
Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,….”
This verse above is very striking and compelling. It moves the receiver (i.e. you) and the writer out of their past, out of dead issues, out of dead dealings, laid back situations, carnally attractive situations and relationships to get them to become ready for what God is getting ready to do in their lives. Am talking about you, what God is going to do through you, for you and within you that will extend into your relationship, your business, your finances, your academics, your family and your future.

The Apostle mince not his words to help us see that there are issues in your life, person’s in your life, places in your life, situations and relationships that have served their purpose and are no longer healthy to be kept around you, and that they’re are also no longer healthy for you to remain in them. This is prophetic.
He uses a greek word Hegeomai to say he wouldn’t count i.e he wouldn’t suppose or conclude himself to have taken or seized all that he had hoped for or had been shown by God, putting the end point of God’s purpose for him in mind. This applies everybit to you in one or two areas of your life presently, showing you that it is with the same rating you would rate yourself with as your purpose will always be in phases and not a one time affair.
Then he says “This onething i do,” using the greek word Poieo which means ‘to consider.’ He speaks of a deep reflection he had done which has pain tied to it somehow and comes to a conclusion to step on a final choice of decision as God is expecting you to do also.
I am speaking to your spirit man!
He says “Forgetting those things which are behind.” That word forgetting means “to overlook or come to a place of Unnoticing the past events that had transpired and the emotional effects that has began to follow and will follow.”
Forgetting i.e neglecting by loosing out of mind all that had fed previously fed your purpose, person, finances, emotions or position prior to this time.
He says the things (i.e those beings, events, happenings, places and memories are behind) meaning that they have become withdrawn from you. This is happening so for your own glory. He also is passing a message to you that you have outgrown them and they by all means couldn’t find a license to remain in your life anymore. Hallelujah!

Will you see with me and God this Morning that a new thing will emerge, but before it begins completely in your life, you have to walk out of your past and close those doors that has limited you and already past serving their purpose forever!
It’s time to move ahead!
Do have a bless Day as you keep winning your week.
