Prophetic Word: Forget What Is Behind and Press Forward

Let go of the past

It is time to let go of the past and press forward into what God is calling us to for 2021 and beyond.

… But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13–14 NIV

The Lord is saying it is time to forget all the disappointments—politically, the pandemic and all the pain of 2020—and press on towards what is ahead.

We all have the work of the Kingdom to do, and the plan of the enemy is to distract you from this. The Lord is releasing plans and strategies for you personally and for cities and nations.

We need to get our eyes on the prize! The Lord is calling us to rise above the swirl of confusion, fear and violence that is ruling the airways and streets.

Trust the Lord

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5–6 NIV

When God does something new, it is sometimes outside of our current understanding. This is why we need to ask the Lord for wisdom and understanding.

The Lord is making a way for you, and it will require moving forward by faith. Watch for your pathway to open and things to become more clear in March.

A new path is opening

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11 NIV

It is time to step into joy and the presence of the Lord in the midst of the storm that is still here.

Watch for the path the Lord has for you to open over the next months.

God is raising up a remnant

So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.
Romans 11:5 NIV

In the midst of all the confusion and distractions in the world, the Lord is raising up a remnant of people who will hear His voice and run with the revelation that is being released.

Watch for strategic relationships and divine alliances to begin to form. There is a major realignment happening to bring people together with a like-minded mission of moving forward.

It is time to stay focused on what is ahead and find others who are on the same path. Don’t get pulled in to battles that are not for this season.

Scroll of instructions

“So I said to you, ‘God—I will be the One to go and do your will, to fulfill all that is written of me in your Word!’” Hebrews 10:7 TPT

The Lord is releasing spiritual instructions about your assignments and greater calling. This will come in the form of dreams and visions and prophetic words from the Lord.

Fix your eyes on the Lord

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. Hebrews 12:1–2 NIV

I keep hearing the same theme from the Lord: Step away from all arguments, disappointments and hurts from the past season. It is time to get a clear picture of what the Lord is doing and run the race that is set before us.

How to pray

Here’s a good Bible verse to decree this month.

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalms 16:11 NIV

Lord, open the pathway for me to move out of the season of the storm. Fill me with joy! Bring Your presence and increase my authority over the attacks.

There is a powerful release of God’s peace and power here. Step into it and you will flow in the river of the Holy Spirit and not the torrents of the world.

This is an exciting time to be alive!

Blessings,

Doug Addison

    The end of last year, i saw so many people dying, so many discouraged, hopeless, suicidal and no hope, nothing solid to latch on to. How sad it is. But there is hope in Jesus, not in world, gov’t, law enforcement, not even a church. The hope is in Jesus. So now I dont care what anyone thinks or says. I am telling as many as i can about what the Lord has done for me and how He can do it for them too.Time to get off the bleachers and get out there in the game. Lord give us all strength.

    I get encouraged when read the prophetic words
    On my heart to share you with you a dream God showed me a week ago
    In the dream I left work I was driving and I didn’t stop on two stop signs. Suddenly I felt God’s presence and was very happy and the car was going fast then I saw an ivory cloud sparkled with gold and I screamed it’s time God is showing me the vision and then I woke up

    This word strikes a chord with what the spirit is saying. In particular the verse about fixing our eyes on the prize and not looking back. Mention was made about the path that God is setting before us. A few days ago after a fresh snow a miniature whirl wind made a path in the snow in the shape of an S connecting my neighbors driveway right up to my front yard. It was a supernatural moment because it looked like
