"... forgetting the things that remain behind and advancing to those who are ahead of me!" (Philippians 3:13)
Have you ever wanted the time to go back?
I've heard many people saying,
"Oh, if I could go back! How many things I did that I would not do and others that I did not and that I would do! "
Frustrations that many keep in their drawers and insist on keeping them there with the keys.
Mistakes, insults, pride, unforgiveness!
Things that could have been resolved and saved.
According to medicine, depression means "attachment to the past"! And that's where the devil finds the door open to house it in people's lives.
Going back to time is impossible, but at any moment God can give you a new chance, something new for you, something that can change your life.
There is something from God that is called mercy, which is released by God through His love for us, and also, something called forgiveness, which is given by Him through our repentance.
Moreover, contrary to that time (of Moses), we now have a lawyer before the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous One. (1 John 1: 2)
God does not choose his way, who chooses is yourself!
"Behold, I propose to you life and death, the blessing and the curse; choose life, that you may live, you and your seed "(Deuteronomy 30:19).
Instead of worrying about things we've done in the past, we must take a stand and break the chains and change what holds us still. We do not have to continue to feel guilty about them.
"Of your sins and iniquities I will remember no more."
Where these things have been forgiven, there is no more need of sacrifice for sin. Hebrews 10: 17,18
We can not go back in time, but we can take advantage of it, not to lose the opportunities that God offers us, to be better and better.
"Because HE lives, I can believe in tomorrow ..."
A beautiful day of wonderful deeds.
