Today I want to remind you to be awesome! Let go of your past. Everyone makes mistakes, or as the Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Good news is, you don’t have to stay down. Repent, ask God to forgive you and He will. Then forgive yourself and move forward. Do not allow your sin to hold you captive. One of the best examples of this can be seen through David, who we’ve come to know as a man after God’s own heart. David was nowhere near perfect. He made many mistakes in his life, he was a murderer, he was adulterer just to name a few but no matter what he did he always went back to God. Let David be an example to us all of what it means to be someone after God’s own heart.
What does it mean to be someone after God’s own heart? It means you have a relationship with God. When you have a relationship with someone, you spend time with them. You talk to them. You listen to them. You trust them. You do right by them. This is the type of heart we should have for our Heavenly Father. In addition to all of the above, “God is spirit, so we must worship Him in spirit and truth”(John 4:24 KJV). You cannot worship God fully in spirit and in truth if you are still holding on to past mistakes. Not only can you not worship freely, you cannot live freely. This is called bondage and satan wants to keep you in bondage. He wants your mind to be held captive to your faults. He wants to keep you in a dark place in life, because he knows that when you see the light you will be able to walk in the full purpose and destiny in which God has for your life. When you walk in the light you are then able to be the man or woman who God created you to be.
Know your enemy. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and he is going to do that be any means necessary. Do not allow him to beat you up with condemnation. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. You might feel convicted, which you should because that just means the Holy Spirit is living inside of you. But you should never feel condemned. Stand up and take your rightful place in the Kingdom of God. Let go of those mistakes, free yourself from bondage and be the awesome person that you were created to be!
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 KJV
