Often times I find my mind wondering back to past hurts and disappointments caused by the people I deal with on a daily basis , whether it’s loved ones , friends or even associates . In this moment I literally relive the scene and wonder why things happened as they have , I ask myself why are you so angered by this ? Never really getting an answer because the pain consumes me , so now I am angry , frustrated , and alone . The truth of the matter is that I should have turned it over to God along time ago and went on with my life . People are designed under the image of God yet we stray away from his word and this is why we find ourselves lost with no hope.
We have the tools to redirect our perspectives and release the ties of life that tend to burden us down and weigh so heavy on our hearts. The main objective is the trust factor we have in God and the assurance that he can and will deliver us . The bible tells us God is a present help in the times of trouble , the problem isn’t getting him to move on our behalf it’s getting us to move out of the way . Despite what you may think , miracles are performed daily and so are blessings , nothing has changed with God except us . We stop adhering to his call , stop taking time to speak with him , we stopped listening and watching for things to manifest . We lost faith because we look at problem instead of trusting in the solution , faith without works (belief) is dead .
If you truly want to be set free from the past you’ve got to put some time in with God , giving all your burdens to him and never looking back . Sure you may stumble and fall but will yourself to get up and keep on moving , do not conform yourself to the normal responses . Cast all your cares on him and watch him set you free. Lay aside those dead dreams , failed relationships and broken promises and be delivered , let the past stay right where it is . It wasn’t until I decided to break free from everything that I found myself again , remembering who I am and who I was created for . I have stated many times that I trust God and I know he is able to lift these burdens , but it meant nothing because I would not let go I couldn’t .
Oh but when I finally began to see what was happening to me and how miserable I was I cried out to God and told him I needed his help . You got to know when to surrender and set your self free. Romans chapter 5 reminds us that we have justification by faith and with that comes peace. It goes on to say that same faith provides grace to stand as we rejoice in the hope of God’s glory .You see all that you’ve faced , every trial and error , every scandal and dark secret , every lie ever told about you has a purpose . And it is with this purpose that you can stand strong and be set free .
Allow yourself to be happy , drop the past and be delivered !!! Never go back to that dead place because there is no life there , just pain and wasted time . The joy of the Lord is your strength use it and regain your deliverance .
