In Philippians 3, Paul tells us to "forget what lies behind" as we strain forward and run the race.
It's a great slogan, isn't it? Forget what lies behind? Don't we all want to do that? Forget about the boyfriend who left us, or be healed from the multiple miscarriages, or our dad's cruelty, or our mother's neglect? Of course we do!
But is Paul being realistic? Can we really get over the hurts in our pasts?
I think the answer in today's eyes is "no". We live in a victim era, where everybody is defined by our hurts. But that's not the way God sees us.
So how do we develop His eyes? How can we see ourselves the way God sees us? Listen in on this ten minute clip from a conference I recently gave, looking at the book of Ruth. Now there's a woman who had a bad past! But she made a complete U-turn.
Today in my podcast I talk about the nature of healing. It's only ten minutes long, so it's not exactly an exegesis on the subject. But I hope I get you thinking about things just a little bit differently! Listen in here
