Encouragement Nugget - Let Go of the Past!
Chosen by God!
“Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 AMPC)
The blood of Jesus covers our past but we must apply the blood to it. If we don't deal with it through the guidance of the Holy Spirit we become the walking wounded and bleed on others.
In looking at the past we must remember not to live there. We must look through the eyes of God's grace, mercy, love, and forgiveness for us, available to us. Then we must embrace our present and move towards our future.
Your past did not change God’s mind about your future!
"I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." (Jeremiah 29:10b-11 MSG)
