Are you wearing your past mistakes, painful hurts, and bad decisions from yesterday like a common garment?

Reliving scenarios from the past is toxic and harmful to your future. If you are wearing your past mistakes, painful hurts and all the bad decisions that you have ever made like a garment of clothing then you are allowing these things to define who you are today.

Holding on to the past and carrying around old shame, guilt and hurt only hinders the great blessings that God has just for you!

You are allowing satan to overcome your mind with negative thoughts about yourself and we all know that is right where he wants you to be! The devil does not belong there, but only you can remove this garment from around your shoulders!

Micah 7:18-19 tells us above that God has compassion for us and he throws all of our sins into the depths of the sea. What this means is that as soon as we repent of our sins, God forgives those sins, cast them away and NEVER thinks about them again! So why in the world do we hold onto our sin knowing that God above loves us enough to forget about what we have done?

You need to stop thinking about your past failures, right now, today! Are you ignoring them? No! You are ignoring a lie, not the sin because the sin has been dealt with and washed away. Therefore, you are meditating on something that no longer exists! If your sins are in the depths of the sea, then why are you still thinking about them?

It is time to take back what the devil has stolen from you!

"Something was wrong back in those early days of marriage, but I couldn't identify it. That's the sneaky thing about shame. Guilt says you've done something wrong, but shame says you are something wrong. Shame was like a squatter in my heart that refused to leave." ~ Sheila Walsh || Click to read today's full devotion!

Now that our past failures have been forgiven, we need to leave them there and press forward towards the things God has for us:

Philippines 3:13, “…this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.”

God is ready to wrap his loving arms around you and take away the shame that you have been drowning in. Don’t look back! You are no longer heading in that direction! The blessings that are coming your way will exceed every expectation that you have ever had for yourself…

HEBREWS 12~ Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

SO HOW CAN WE RID OURSELVES FROM WEARING THE GARMENTS FROM OUR PAST?

-FORGIVE YOURSELF AND ALLOW GOD TO ALSO FORGIVE YOU

-PUT ON THE GARMENT OF PRAISE AND GET YOUR PRAISE AND WORSHIP ON

-LEAVE THE PAST IN THE PAST WHERE IT BELONGS!! (WE ALL HAVE MADE MISTAKES< JUST DO NOT LET THOSE MISTAKES DEFINE YOU)

-LET GO OF WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK FROM RECEIVING YOUR BLESSINGS

-DON’T LOOK BACK!! RUN TOWARD YOUR FUTURE

 

Haha. Sort of a clever way to put it. Makes me think.

DON’T LOOK BACK< YOU ARE NO LONGER GOING IN THAT DIRECTION….

 

LET THE RESURRECTED KING TAKE ALL YOUR SIN & SHAME AWAY!
