Past Is Past
John 3:18 tells us that “No one who has faith in God’s Son will be condemned.” Isn’t that exciting news! God doesn’t hold our past against us. We have been acquitted of all our wrong doings in the past. It is our faith in God, it is believing in Him that will take us through our failures, our troubles, our issues both big and small.
He so desires that our hearts stay peaceful and full of Him. Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.” We are instructed to keep : to hedge about, guard, protect and attend to our heart.
From our well kept heart flows life-giving power! Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace…which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus’
Thank goodness He doesn’t hold our past failures and issues against us.
