Free To Move Forward

 

(John 8:36) “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!”

(Proverbs 29:18) “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”

(Psalms 27:13) “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”

(2 Timothy 1:7) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

 

 

How you deal with your past will determine your future. We all have a dark past and were bound in chains, sick in our thoughts, and spiritually dead until Jesus came to the rescue. I know for a fact that all of us were in chains because this is the only way Satan knows how to make us submit to his will. He does not show love or compassion, but only fear and oppression. He does not teach with love and patience, but only condemns us and keeps us under his thumb.

When you were in the world without Jesus dancing to the tune of the enemy, what kind of songs did you listen to? The music industry basically continues to run on songs that talk about a lost love, regret, pain, and suffering, and lately a sense of pride in rampant sexual sin and hatred towards rules and authority.

However, what kind of songs do you sing when you have connected to your Heavenly Father? Exactly!…Joy in your heart, peace like a river, hope for the hopeless, no turning back, no longer a slave to fear, amazing grace, leaning on the everlasting arms…etc.

We were born in sin and with a sinful nature. Physical and verbal abuse, sickness, mockery from our peers, racism, violence, corruption, addictions, and a lack of love are the direct results of living in an evil world under an evil ruler. But I have good news. We have been set free.

Free to forget the past, free to worship our Creator, free to get healed from the pain we suffered and be able to love and trust others again, free to actually dream and desire good things for ourselves, and free to move forward with a vision from God.

We can actually become powerful weapons to set others free and bring them a new hope and new life, just as we have received from Jesus. The shadows of the past and the scars of the wounds will always be there, but by submitting that pain to Jesus every day they can become reminders of the victory you have now, instead of the pain you experienced then.

(“When your desire to go forward becomes greater than the memories of your past, you’ll begin to live again. Purpose always overcomes pain! When you finally understand that you are loose, you’ll start behaving like it. You’ll go wherever God takes you, and you’ll become all that He wants you to be.” – Bob Gass)

 

 

Make a choice today to move forward because there is nothing really holding you back.
