Letting go to move forward

Timeless truths from Philippians 3:13.

You’ve seen the monkey with his hand in a jar. He can’t get his hand out of the jar because he refuses to let go of the banana!! We smile at the picture but then practice the illustrative truth. Unless we are willing to LET GO of things from our past, we will not be able to move forward. When our hand is in the jar of the past, it isn’t free to reach for the blessings of God in the present. How do you let go? See the blessing that God has planned for you if only you will let go.

“Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,” Philippians‬ ‭3:13‬ ‭NASB‬‬
