Topic: DON’T GO BACK TO YESTERDAY
Text: Isaiah 43:18
📖18….”Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.”
🔥Many of us are not making progress in life today because we keep going back to yesterday. Especially the bad yesterday, to say the least. We don’t allow yesterday to be and face the future. We don’t remember the good yesterday so that we can go to how we got it right then, and become better again, only the bad old days. Formerly, the Jews in Egypt were slaves that were not allowed to drink water while working. Their mouths were muzzled against eating from their labour like oxen. Humans ought not to be so treated as the scripture says – 1 Tim 5:18.
🔥🔥When a man walking on the road continues to look back, one of two things is bound to happen to him. Either his movement will be slowed down; thus being delayed, or he will start going back to that back. To look back, is to be interested in the past. God therefore instructed us in Isaiah 43:18 not to remember the former things so that we won’t be either delayed or go back. When God delivered the Jews from captivity, they began to remember Egypt by living in their yesterday – Num 11:5. This was happening because their mentality had accepted suffering. They now saw freedom as a sign of laziness.
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, poverty as circumstantial is not a problem, but once you make it your mental state, it becomes hereditary and contagious. The Lord said in Deuteronomy 15:15 that, even if you remember the past, know that you have been redeemed with an outstretched arm of God. Child of God, a constant visit to yesterday, diminishes faith. This is because the past is history, the present is victory, while the future is mystery. The mystery of the future is what makes our victory a thing of pain to the enemy. The new thing God wants to do, is a mystery. It is for us, the mysteries of God; even as God is a mystery. Go for that new thing in Christ.
🙏O Lord, visit me with celebration for me to forget former afflictions and tempests in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Compassionate father, disallow the sins of my youth from haunting me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏God of covenants, as I have forgotten the past and held on to Jesus, let my now and tomorrow be joyful in Jesus’ name.
