Letting It All Go!

Happy New Year. 2019

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19.

For a lot of people, the past holds either a difficult childhood, an abusive marriage, or financial issues among other heartbreakingly hard things to deal with.

Yet no matter how painful our past may have been, for some strange reason we often choose not to let go. Yes, I said ‘choose’ because no matter how painful your past is, it cannot hinder your future if you decide not to let it. It’s a matter of choice. You see, if we want to have a better future, we must decide to make a clean break and leave the past behind.

This is not only the best thing you can do but also the biblical thing to do.”Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.” – Philippians 3:13.

In the scripture above, Paul is focused on one thing: winning the prize, doing what God has called him to do. He tells us that he doesn’t have his act totally together, and he’s in the process of becoming what God desires him to be. BUT in order to do that, he knows that he must forget what is behind and focus on the future.

See, Paul knew something that many of us have forgotten. He knew that in order to move forward into the divine destiny that God has in store for us, we’d have to let go of what happened in our past. God can fully heal you and break off any chain if you are willing to believe that He can do it for you.

If you’re still not convinced that God wants you to stop looking back at your past then look at Luke 9:62 where Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” or go right back to the first book in the Bible and read about how Lot’s wife looked back and became a pillar of salt in Genesis 19:26.

God wants to do a new thing in all of us. A fresh🌺 thing. An unfamiliar thing. Something we have never seen before. He wants to make a way in those circumstances where there seems like there is no way.

But so often, we don’t see it. All we can see are the former things. Those things in our past that sap our time, energy, focus and attention and keep us from seeing all that God has for us.I pray that you will determine to give that past over to God, allow him to handle it for you, and look for the new thing he wants to do for you.

God wants you to be future-focused, and he can help you put behind those things from your past which get in the way.
