Coming from a background that was filled with drug addicts!!! alcoholics!!! abusers!! mental illness!!! welfare!!! poverty!!! you name it!!! It would have been so easy to have allowed my past to have kept me from my future and my destiny!!!
And at the time when I was weighed down with the embarrassment and shame of my past!!! The fact that I grew up in a foster home!! The fact that I had a mother who had 7 kids and with each child she had she had a nervous breakdown and was committed to a mental hospital!! The fact that I was on welfare and came from a family of extreme severe poverty where we did not have indoor water or an indoor toilet!!! That I was in an abusive marriage that almost cost me my life!!! The abortion that I allowed the abortion doctor and his nurse to talk me into after being tricked into taking what was supposed to be a free pregnancy test….
There were so many decisions and mistakes that I had made in my life and some things I had no control over as a result of the family that I was born into that brought me much shame and pain…
I’m here to tell you that the devil loves to hide behind shame and pain!!! And as long as you allow him to use your past and your family’s past against you and hold it over your head, you will never go far in God and you will not go far in life!!!
When I came to Christ at the age of 12 and realized that regardless of the family that I had been born into that in Christ I was given a whole new family without all the issues and drama that was in my natural family… that I was given a brand new bloodline… and that because of Christ I was a new creation in him and that I did not have to walk around with my head held down because of my past!!! I was truly set Free from my past….
Do you know how liberating!!! freeing!! and healing!! that it was to come to a place where all the burdens… all the weights… all the embarrassments… and all the shame that I had carried around for years… to finally be able to lay them at the feet of Jesus… to cast all my cares upon him and leave them there and not have to pick them up again nor have to be reminded of or have to think about them again!!!
When I casted all my cares upon Jesus that was the most liberating day of my life and I want you to know that I never looked back and I never went back to the things in my past.. the things I wish I had did… I should have did… could have did differently…
I no longer allowed the devil or people to hold my past over my head because I know with a certainty what Jesus did for me and the fact that he said when you come to him and give your life totally over to him he takes your past and throws it into the sea of forgetfulness and he remembers it no more and that means that you should not remember it anymore either in a way that would bring guilt and condemnation!!!
Today if you have not given your life to Jesus Christ I strongly encourage you to ask Christ into your heart and give your life to Him because only in him can you find the true peace joy and happiness that you are looking for!!! And if you have made Jesus Christ Lord of your life, I come against every spirit of worry, anxiety, frustration, discouragement, hopeleness, despair, depression, shame, guilt and condemnation that the enemy would use against you… I bind it and curse it and kill it at the root and cast it out of your life and I loose the spirit of peace, love, joy and a sound mind that God has given you in Jesus’ name!!!
Today determine in your heart and your mind that today will be a new day for you!!! A new Beginning!!! do not go back to the past and the past mistakes that you or anyone in your family has made.
From today focus your eyes on what God has done for you!!! On the fact that he loved you so much that he has given you life and he’s given you life more abundantly through his only begotten son Jesus Christ.
You are going to live out the good life and the good plan that God has for you and you will fulfill your destiny in God and everything that people and the devil said you would not be able to do you will do to the Glory of God!!!
You are going to walk in the blessings and abundance of God and see his goodness and mercy displayed in every part of your life… What the devil meant for evil… to bring shame and great pain… God is going to turn it around for your Good and cause it to be a Blessing!!!
God loves you and cares for you and has good plans for your life in Jesus name!!! Because if God is for you no one can be against you!!! You have the Victory through Christ Jesus!!!
Have an Awesome day in God!!!
