Your Past is Irrelevant
2 Corinthians 25:17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new.
If I told you today, that God wants to do a powerful miracle in your life, that He wants to set you free, completely free, from that one thing in your past that you’re still hanging on to … would you believe me?
It’s amazing how the past has the power to ruin your today and to rob you of your tomorrows. Sure, we know there’s nothing that we can do to change the past, and yet still, it devastates the lives of so many. The truth is, letting go of the hurts of the past, can be incredibly difficult.
Might I ask you, what is it in your past that still haunts you today. Something you did wrong perhaps? Something that someone else did to you? Some abuse? Some unforgiveness?
I believe that God is going to do a powerful miracle in your life today, to set you free from your past. Not by what I say, but by what His Word says.
2 Corinthians 5:17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new. (NRSV)
Right there, God is saying that the instant you accept Jesus, your past becomes completely irrelevant. It no longer has any power over you. You’ve just become a completely new creation. Everything from your past has passed away – go look in the mirror, everything about you is new.
Now if I simply said that, it wouldn’t have any impact at all. But remember, it’s not me, it’s God. It’s something God has just spoken into your life. It’s the truth.
And now that you know the truth, He can set you free.
So if anyone – anyone! – is in Christ, right there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new.
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
