2 Corinthians 5:17, Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
So sometime last week an acquaintance did that repost of years back thing that Facebook does. It was a picture of four ladies on a night out and guess who was in it, yours truly 😂😂😂😂.
As I looked at the picture I laughed at how I was dressed and thought, in this new day I would have buttoned up to my neck and wore a jean trousers under that shirt dress.
In the early stages of my walk in Christ, I would have been so ashamed and did everything I could to make sure people didn’t see the picture. But guess what??? Instead I found it absolutely amusing.
I was grateful to God for how far he had brought me. How blessed I was to have been part of the chosen by God to do our best in walking on this righteous path. (IT’S NOT EASY) but God is in control.
Am not perfect yet but am still on the journey and I believe that is what matters.
My message today is… DO NOT ALLOW THE DEVIL TO REMIND YOU OF YOUR PAST AND MAKE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER MADE THOSE MISTAKES.
Mistakes are meant to be made and learnt from not for you to drown in the sea of regrets. Leave the past into the sea of forgetfulness.
Remember what I always say,…
It is better to go to the school of wisdom than the school of experience.
That was your past not your present and certainly not your future.
My latest favourite scripture jumps to mind…
Proverbs 4:7-8, Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
I PRAY FOR YOU THIS DAY TO OVERCOME THE SPIRIT OF THE PAST, THE SPIRIT OF SELF CONDEMNATION, THE SPIRIT OF LOW SELF ESTEEM. BE EMPOWERED AND ENCOURAGED IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS. AMEN!!!
Be blessed and keep walking on this straight and narrow path, IT WILL BE WORTH IT! 😇🙏😘
