The enemy is quite skilled in coordinating reminders of your past to keep you from moving forward in life. In your moments of loneliness he will remind you of the good moments you had with an ex. In a moment of struggle he will remind you how delightful sin once made you. In your greatest moment, he will remind you of all the things that once went wrong. The worst of your life’s moments suddenly become a reference point to who you are currently when you don’t take the initiative to intentionally push forward.
The enemy doesn’t want you to look at yourself the way God see’s you. His ambition is to kill, steal, and destroy your confidence, faith, and joy and replace it with insecurities, doubt, and depression.
Move forward Queen. Push past all that is behind you. Don’t look back to the woman you once were. Your mistakes, accidents, shortfalls, and sins all have the ability to be used for you and not against you.
Commit today to putting to death all thoughts of shame, condemnation, and doubt. There is a life much greater than your past awaiting you.
Push past your past.
” I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me.” Philippians 3:12
