Your Past does not determine your future.

 We all have some kind of past that we are not too happy about. There are things that come to mind and remind us who we were. We do not have to act on those memories. Don’t let what has happened to you define who you are. 

 The promises of God are greater than my character flaws. All those things that are in me that are opposite of God’s character do not have to stay and do not have to determine what I am today. 

 The promises of God is greater than the confinements of your past. What ever you have been or where you have come from is not a determinate of your future.

 Don’t let anything or anyone else but God determine the boundaries of your life…Don’t let anything or anyone else but God determine the boundaries of who you will be or what you will accomplish in life…. (Claude Houde)

 Acts 17:26-28

New King James Version (NKJV)

26 And He has made from one blood[a] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

 You have been chosen by God…

 1 Peter 2:9-10

New King James Version (NKJV)

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

God is in control of your life. He is working in you and through you. Don’t trust in yourself or in man. 

MHC – That in him we live, and move, and have our being, Acts 17:28. We have a necessary and constant dependence upon his providence, as the streams have upon the spring, and the beams upon the sun. 

He has a plan for you. We need to depend on he providence. 

providence |ˈprävədəns; -ˌdens|

the protective care of God or of nature as a spiritual power 

• ( Providence) God or nature as providing such care 

  • timely preparation for future eventualities

Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP) 

11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

MHC – He that in the beginning finished the heavens and the earth, and all the hosts of both, will finish all the blessings of both to his people. When he begins in ways of mercy he will make an end. God does nothing by halves. (2.) He will give them to see the expectation, that end which they desire and hope for, and have been long waiting for. He will give them, not the expectations of their fears, nor the expectations of their fancies, but the expectations of their faith, the end which he has promised and which will turn for the best to them. 

Romans 8:28 (AMP) 

28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

Be lifted up today…Have Faith, Hope, & Peace in knowing that God is working in you and will continue to work in you until Christ be formed in you. Do not let your past form you, let what Jesus did and is doing form you. 

Philippians 1:6 (AMP) 

And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

He will continue developing and perfecting you…He is not done with me yet….Praise God!!! He is not done with you yet. Look to Him for today and for your future. Let Him change you. Let Him change your memories. Don’t let go of these promises. Hold on to them. 

2 Corinthians 10:4-6

New King James Version (NKJV)

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Cast down every thought, every memory, everything that tries to come up against what God has done for you and is doing in you. 

Say right now:

“No matter what scares are on me, God’s promises are greater….”

 What Satan means for evil, God will turn around for good….

You are His child. You are in His Hands. Let Him comfort you and change you today!!!!!

Colossians 1:4

For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus the leaning of your entire human personality on Him in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness and of the love which you have and show for all the saints God’s consecrated ones…

Leaning of your entire personality… 

Absolute trust

Absolute confidence

In His Power

In His Wisdom

In His Godness

Personality – visible aspect of ones character (collection of qualities) sum total of the physical, mental, emotional, & social characteristics…

Our personality should reflect His character…

Colossians 1:3-6 (PHILLIPS) | Whole Chapter

We thank God for you and pray constantly for you

3-6 I want you to know by this letter that we here are constantly praying for you, and whenever we do we thank God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ because you believe in Christ Jesus and because you are showing true Christian love towards other Christians. We know that you are showing these qualities because you have grasped the hope reserved for you in Heaven—that hope which first became yours when the truth was brought to you. It is, of course, part of the Gospel itself, which has reached you as it spreads all over the world. Wherever that Gospel goes, it produces Christian character, and develops it, as it had done in your own case from the time you first heard and realised the amazing fact of God’s grace.

Wherever that Gospel goes, it produces Christian character, and develops it…

It produces Christ like Character….

Colossians 2:6

As you have therefore received Christ, even Jesus the Lord, so walk regulate your lives and conduct yourselves in union with and conformity to Him.

Romans 8:29 (KJ21)

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son…

 

OH My God that they may know You & Your Character, and that You change not. Show them that you are merciful, gracious, long suffering, & abundant in goodness & truth. A God who is slow to anger & abundant in love, that You are love. (compassionate nature) 

 

These are just a few characteristics that we are to have in our lives, because they are characteristics of Christ…

 

As we place our faith in what Jesus did at the Cross, the Holy Spirit begins to work in us to conform us to the image of Jesus. Our personality then will show the character of Christ to others and in all circumstances. We will think like Jesus, walk like Jesus, talk like Jesus, have compassion like Jesus…We will be changed!!! We will not be as the world… We will not walk in our old nature, but our new nature will be reflected in all we do and in all we are….

 

KNOW, RECKON, YIELD

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Our personality should reflect His character!!!

Today is the day of….

 

So many times we are either looking back or planning for the future. We have made mistakes in the past & live back there. We question if we can make it past those mistake. We feel defeated & let fear of failure stop us from moving forward. 

 

Rom 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

 

2  Cor 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

 

Rev 10:12 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ:

 

Ps 95:7 

7 For he is our God;

and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice…

 

In Him you can be victorious…

You must believe and accept it all by faith…

Not by your good works, but because of what Jesus did at the Cross….

God wants us to spend time with Him now.  Trust Him now.

 

Father I need you today… Give me wisdom to walk with you today and to take the steps that will make me strong in you. Help me to overcome all my fears. I know I am your child and you want good things for me. Help me to walk in that truth. You are my only hope… You know the deepest parts of me. Forgive me for being lazy and distracted with lives daily activities. 

 

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Psalm 27:14
Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

 

Isaiah 43:1

now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.

For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior…
