Voice of Inspiration

You Are Not Your Past
Date Posted: October 30, 2022

Paul was a greedy thief. He was Bounty hunter paid to find Christians and take them to prison. Because of his testimony against them, they would be executed.He personally had the Apostle Stephen killed. The scales of injustice weighed heavily against him, yet, after his conversion, he wrote, “THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.” I’m sure Paul was tempted to not write the letters he did because of his past. What if he gave in to that temptation? What if he decided to live in his past and not look toward the promise of his future? How much of the bible would not have been written?

"Next Level Thinking" requires us to look toward a brighter future and leaving the negative past in the past.What if you stop believing you are still condemned? What if you believed, fully, in God’s redemption for your life? What would you accomplish? (You can tweet that.) What if? Take time to meditate on Romans 8 and ask the Spirit what you need to release to Him.

Drop me a comment. I would love to hear from you.
