If you desire to focus on your future, you must first conquer your past.
Look at your past and you would see disobedience to God’s commands, unfaithfulness, passion, and all kinds of forbidden pleasures. You would see a world ruled by evil desires that rebel against and is opposed to God’s will. This is the past Jesus Christ came to brush aside through His crucifixion and resurrection. As Apostle Paul said in Galatians 2:19, “I have been put to death with Christ on His Cross so that it is no longer I who live; now, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave His life for me” (Galatians 2:19).
I was baptized in Christ. I died when He died. Sin’s power over me is broken, in Jesus’ name.
The guilt, condemnation, and penalty for our sin have been washed away in the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Why, therefore, should we take journeys into the past? Why should we allow satan to remind us of our unworthy past in order to provoke our guilt and tarnish our future, thereby? If you desire to focus on your future, you must first conquer your past. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is opportunity. Make the most out of the opportunity God has given you today, by realizing that by His death and resurrection on the Cross, He now views you as righteous through His Son, Jesus Christ. Give thanks to God that you can boldly approach Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. Give thanks to God for restoring our relationship and fellowship with Him, in Jesus’ name.
