The Past Does Not Define Your Future

So many times I find myself looking backwards at all of my failures, it drains the life out of me and leaves me feeling empty.  Each day becomes a constant battle to look forward and leave the past behind us. God promises that he will forgive us all our sin, remembering them no more. “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17

If God forgives us and remembers our past sins no more, who are we to continue to remember them?? All we are doing is robbing from all that we could accomplish for Christ in the future, if we left the past in the past. Our future is only defined by our past if we lack the ability to let go of it. It is a tool of Satan to constantly remind us of our past failures, he knows that a forgiven sinner can accomplish great things for Christ if they possess the ability to let go and trust Christ with their future. It becomes a daily battle to refocus on what is ahead and leave what is behind where it belongs!!!! God forgives us and casts our sins as far as the east is from the west!! He does not define our future with the events of our past. As far as he is concerned each day is a clean slate, waiting for us to fill it with all of the mighty things he has planned for our lives, “They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:23
