LET GO OF THE PAST
Give up! Give up those hurts of the past. It’s time to move on. satan
loves to have you live in the past because that renders you ineffective to
live in the present-in the now.
Tell Me, child. What is it that has happened to you? Who hurt you? What
mistakes have you made that you regret? Did what happen to you change the
fact that Jesus loves you, and He died on the cross for you so you could
live in heaven with Him for all eternity?
Can anything or anyone ever change that fact? You know that nothing can
ever nullify what Jesus did for you on the cross. If that’s true, and it
is, then nothing else matters, does it?
There is nothing that can happen to you, nothing anyone can do to you that
can ever change the fact that My Son, Jesus, loves you and died on
the cross for you so you gain heaven for all eternity. No one can ever take
that away from you. No One!
Hold on to that thought. Put things in their proper perspective. When you
do that, you’ll see that being loved unconditionally, attaining salvation
and the right to go to heaven is your ultimate goal. Everything else pales
in comparison to that.
Even physical death cannot take heaven away from you, for then the real
you-your spirit-just changes abodes. Physical death for Christians is
moving from living in the temple of the Holy Spirit, your body, to living in
I know, My child, I know. Your mind is often filled with hurtful things
that happen to you. Sometimes you even say to people “You don’t know how
much it hurt Me when such and such happened.” Well, I ask you again, does
what happen to you in the past change the fact that Jesus loves you and died
for you, and now you can spend eternity with Him in heaven? I don’t have to
wait for your answer, because I know immediately your mind said, “No!”
Then, child, nothing else matters! Compared to eternity, all problems are
nothing. Loving Me, being in My family, gaining the right to live in heaven
for eternity-that’ s what’s important in life. If you lose that, you’ve lost
it all. Don’t hold grudges. forgive! Nothing you can gain on can
make up for that loss, and nothing can happen to
you on that can take that away from you- Nothing!
