Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:18 – 19)
The devil has the bad habit of continually harassing our minds with the pains and challenges of the past. Cunningly, that thief of our peace will try to connect what happened in the past with what is happening right now. Somehow, you are left with the false impression that your life is a chronicle of bad luck that has brought untold pain and suffering. This kind of mental oppression is worse for people who lived recklessly in sin before they got born again. So, even after God has saved and delivered you, your mind keeps taking you back to the filthy things you did in the past that has no bearing with you because of your relationship with Christ. I rebuke every lying spirit that keeps you looking back at things that God has taken care of in your life, in the mighty name of Jesus. God wants you to forget the challenges of the past because God is doing a new thing in your life. Forget about the monthly statement from your bank that says there is no money in your account. Forget about the fact that your marriage is yet to be blessed with children. God is able to make a way where there is no way. He who raises the poor out of the dust has taken care of your finances. He who ensures that the barren shall keep a home, has made you a joyful parent of children. Forget the past, focus on the future filled with God’s blessings.
Liberation thought: God is able to do just what he says.
