Replaying Your Past

https://youtu.be/CIIxJwmj0vM

 

(Isaiah 43:19) Watch! I’m about to carry out something new! And now it’s springing up—don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the wilderness and paths in the desert.

(Isaiah 43:25) “I, I am the one who blots out your transgression for my own sake, and I’ll remember your sins no more.

(Hebrews12:2) “fixing our attention on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of the faith, who, in view of the joy set before him, endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

 

If you are constantly reliving your past mistakes in your mind and getting depressed or regretful, then it is not God who is allowing this. It is Satan, whose purpose is to stop you from enjoying the new life Jesus has given you. When you are born again through Jesus, there is no more condemnation, nor guilt for your past mistakes, but just a feeling of forgiveness and a new beginning.

If God ever brings up a past experience in your mind, it will only be to encourage you or to remind you that He has always been there for you. Sure, we all have sad memories and regrets, but they should never stop us from moving forward with God’s plan. If God chooses not to remember your sins anymore, why do you insist on focusing on them?

Just like Jesus, we need to learn to focus on the joy that was set before Him, which was to be used by the Father to save the world. Start focusing on the joy that is set before you as a servant of the Most High, and you’ll be able to endure the present circumstances.

Let every trial in your life become a teaching moment that will give hope to others around you facing similar situations. It’s good to give advice from the Bible, but it makes it more real when you have a personal testimony to accompany that teaching. Therefore, don’t let your dark past drag you down, but rather let it be a testimony of how God truly forgives and changes lives.

Instead of asking God “Why am I suffering this?” ask Him “For Whom am I suffering this.” God is doing a new thing, don’t miss it by feeling sorry for yourself or being stuck in the past.
