While watching a television show last night I was hoping for a new episode. Instead they had compiled bloopers and outtakes from past shows. Along with that they had questions to answer from fans who had written in. It was mostly a go over of past events. While some of it was funny, I didn’t want to rehash things I’d already seen. I was ready for a completely new experience.
The enemy wants us to keep rehashing old events. He likes to keep us occupied with the past. When we either replay old mistakes and feel horrible or replay old joys and feel like life will never be joyful again we are doing the enemy’s work.
Oh beloved, it’s time to go on! 2017 is a year to look forward to! Don’t allow yourself to be stuck in the past! While memories can be great, they can also keep you looking back. And God is moving forward! He is beckoning you to move on with Him. While this year has been the year of the wind, the new year is the year of going on! He has much in store for you! His promises are going to be fresh in your heart and mind. You’re in line for fresh wisdom from above, fresh power for living and fresh love to follow Christ with your whole heart! Your destiny is not to relive the best of times from yesteryear. Nor is it to keep trying to pay penance for things that weren’t done right. Same old same old won’t work for God’s child. You’re destined to move forward with the anointing of the Lord and step into new waters without being sure of yourself. He is coming to set the captives free and give liberty to the oppressed. He is coming to set you free from old mind sets and give you fresh insight to stand strong and fulfill your calling! Only God can do the work, but He says to you to respond today and get ready to move!
God loves you and He’s for you! Get up off your bed and walk! Rise up out of your ashes and put on joy! Praise Him for renewed hope and fervor as you live in the Light of His Future and Hope for you!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.’ Amplified
2 Corinthians 1:21 It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, and He has identified us as His own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything He has promised us.
2 Thessalonians 1:11 So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of His call. May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.
