Summary: God is not interested in your past, He doesnt want to see the syndicated reruns, He caught it the first time around. When the past seems to creep up on us, the accuser and you are the only ones who see it. You know what God sees? He only sees His
Free yourself, from Yourself
Romans 8:31 MSG.
31-39. So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?
And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for uswho was raised to life for us!is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us.
Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
Sometimes, things will happen and we get beaten down by the accuser and bywhat happens to us in the world,
By a certain situation, or a group of people, or sometimes just one person.
Or it may be our heredity, the family we came from, or the lack of family we came from,
We may have caused it, or had no control over it happening,
Whatever may be the case, it always tries to weasel its way in-between our relationship with the Lord if we let it.
If were not careful, it can become a focal and dwelling point with us and one thing we dont need to be doing, is looking behind.
We need to look towards the future, our best days are ahead of us, not behind us!
We need to learn to let go of the past and never revisit it again.
Amen?, thats what God does,
Jesus cannot forgive us anymore than we have been forgiven, completely means just that,
God is not interested in your past, He doesnt want to see the syndicated reruns, He caught it the first time around.
When the past seems to creep up on us, the accuser and you are the only ones who see it.
You know what God sees? He only sees His Sons perfection when you try bring up something from the past.
Jesus Blood covered it all!
Jesus sacrifice took care of the past once and for all. God only looks at your future, your past to Him is no more, its tossed in the sea of forgetfulness!
If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?
Gods willing to do His part, He already has, but we have to be willing to put on, what He has given us everyday and walk in it.
Eph. 6:13-15 MSG.
13-15. Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet.
Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them.
You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon.
The Forgiveness Jesus offers, has its privileges, freedom from any and all condemnation is one of them.
And a condemnation free life, is a beautiful thing!
Romans 8:1-3 NKJ.
1. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
2. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
3. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh
If the law could not keep us on the straight and narrow before Grace came onto the scene, than its certainly not going to do it now, is it?
There comes a time, where a person has to draw a line in the sand and say, enough is enough,
This is the last time that Im going there,
Condemnation, if you let it, will kill you!
You can be the one to say, "No more. This is a new day!
Shed the old life way of thinking, once and for all, put it out with the trash and send it to the landfill, its time to step into the New.
2nd Cor. 5:17-18 AMP.
17Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. (its dead as a doornail, quit trying to give it CPR) Behold, the fresh and new has come!
