Don’t dwell on the Past

This is what the Lord says­­- he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters…Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Isaiah 43:18

Do not dwell on your past success, business, happiness, friendship, relationship, etc. Do not dwell on the past life. Stop blaming yourself for what couldn’t go on well in the past. And do not keep the pains of yesterday.

If things didn’t go on well (probably last year, last month, last week, yesterday), let them go. Don’t start your day worrying about bad things that happened the day before.
Remember what the psalmist said “this is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” psalm 118:24.

You can’t do anything about the past. However, you can make plans today to have a better tomorrow.

The only truth about the past is it hinders you from receiving the best from the Lord.

Friend your best is in your future. Paul said in Philippians 3:13 “…But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” NIV

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19 NLT)

God will not say what He can’t do. As a matter of fact, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH HIM. Mark 10:17. He is faithful. Where your strength ends is where He begins. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Where there is no Hope, He brings hope. Where there is no Joy, He brings joy. He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.

God bless you as you leave the past behind in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
