How often do we compromise our now because of the past or what we think the future may look like?
The Lord tells us we are wiped clean from our past and made as white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)
The Lord also tells us not to worry about the future for he knows the plans he has for us. (Matthew 6:34 & Jeremiah 29:11)
So why do we do it?
That’s an answer for each of us individually to ask ourselves and put a stop to the devil’s antics of wanting us to feel unworthy or scared that something from our past will creep up upon us, or that our future will be affected by the place or situation we are in currently.
We serve a God as Christians that guarantees peace when we trust in him fully, promises us eternal life when we believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah, our Lord, and Savior.
So why do we worry?
Because we are so wrapped up in society and what the world thinks that we forget that the creator of the world, who happens to be our Father, is the one who controls our paths when we give full authority of our lives to Him!
Turn to him, Give it all away. He’s ready for you.
Jesus loves you all, so much so that he gave his life for you to be at peace and not worry about your past, present, or future. ❤
Here is reading of scripture that God gave to me to read: Psalm 91 🕊
I hope you all enjoy this Bible passage as much as I do. These scriptures have helped me, as well as others, so much during this time. For we are reminded in this passage that we are safe in the shelter of the Most High and protected from the enemy when we are in His hands. 🙏🏾
You are loved! You are safe! You are protected in the name of the Lord!
Given you faith, earned your trust, given you life?
How often has God protected you from the enemy, from the troubles of life, and the world?
How often have you should have been somewhere and didn’t get to go or were late and found out something could have happened to you that didn’t?
How often have you been hurt and realized God was protecting you from others by them hurting you before it could get worse or allow more people to hurt you?
How often have you just looked at life and said ‘thank you Lord’, for it could be a lot worse than it is right now?
If you haven’t done this today, I want you, by the grace of God, to write and list the things, people, actions, and the life you’re grateful for. Tell God how thankful you are for his grace, for giving up his most prized possession on the cross for us, Jesus.
Make a list, Just 10 things you are grateful for.
I’m grateful for:
1. Love 2. Jesus Christ 3. Grace everyday 4. Salvation 5. Family 6. Friends 7. My dog, Daisy 8. Education 9. My past, for it makes me a better person. 10. Regrets, for they show me how far God has brought me and bring me closer to him and his grace everyday. For he has turned my regrets into grace, my pain into a testimony, and my life into a life lived for him. ♡
• Less than • Hurt • Violated • Anxious • Depressed • Lonely • Discouraged • Angry • Small • Sad
LET IT GO.
It is not worth your time, your energy, or the discouragement of your spirit.
You have the power to say no. You have the power to say no to the enemy. You have the power to say no to where your mind wants to take you.
Rebuke all things that are not of God in the name of Jesus. Saying:
Lord I rebuke all things that are not of you in my life. Take control of my heart God, heal me Lord, cleanse me of toxicity and ignorance Father. In Jesus’s mighty and matchless name protect me from my mind, heal my wounds from my past, and shield me from darkness. Amen. 🙏🏾
You are new, you are clean, you are righteous in God’s eyes when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Your slate is swept clean, you are as white as snow, and as righteous as holy water.
