God is present future in His communication. He speaks in the now inviting us into the there. Consequently reminiscing for a Christian is a luxury the bold of heart cannot afford. We are futurists living today in the light of tomorrow. Retrospection will only guide us backwards not onwards. The need to understand what has happened can sometimes prevent that which could happen. Our energy must be invested in our destiny not understanding our history. The future requires our undivided attention and the present keeps us connected to it through celebration.
Psalm 118 v24 This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it
