WFJ: Your past is past, it’s a new day!

10 March 2011 One Comment

For those who carry heavy burdens and weights of guilt because of past mistakes made … put them down and walk away from them! Your past is past, and it’s a new day!

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and let Him sustain you” (Psalm 55:22)! “Lay aside every weight and sin which does so easily beset you, and run with patience the race that is set before you, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith” (Hebrew 12:1,2).

You wonder how to do that? With a simple heartfelt prayer, like the following one:

(Prayer): Lord, I confess that I have hurt people, because of my lack of love and attention to their needs, my self-centered nature that lacks real love and compassion for others! I need Your mercy! I need You to forgive me and make me new, to wipe away my tears, pain and sorrows, as I desperately call upon You, “the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last” (Rev. 22:13), the Author and the Finisher of my faith.

Jesus, it’s through You that I “come boldly to the throne of grace, that I may obtain mercy in this time of need” (Hebrew 4:16), because You are “the door”, through which to “enter in and be saved” (John 10:9), the Lamb of God, which takes away my sins” (John: 1:29)!

I declare that I’m saved, because of Your sacrifice and the shedding of Your blood for me! My sins have been forgiven and I can come with confidence to You, knowing that “You will not cast me out” (John 6:37). Thank you Jesus! Thank you Father! Thank you Holy Spirit! I worship You and praise You and give You honor and glory, for You are worthy to be praised and crowned “King of kings, and Lord of lords” (1 Timothy 6:15). Please speak to me now, and show me the way to walk, in Your precious Name, Jesus, I pray.

(Jesus): “Come, My child, the door is open! Come into My presence and don’t be afraid, I’m waiting for you! You should never hesitate to come to Me whenever you need or want! Just drop whatever else you are doing and come into My presence, for the door is always open and you will always find Me ready to talk with you! I desire to talk with you! Ever since I created the world, I’ve always wanted to have intimate fellowship with each of My children, so that I can lead and guide them through life and to the fulfillment of their destiny!

That’s what I originally intended life to be, “on earth, as it is in Heaven” (Matt. 6:10), a place where I communicate with each of My creations and direct their eternal destiny to fulfill the purpose for which they were created. I “made the world and all things therein” (Acts 17:24), it all belongs to Me! At the beginning of time, men were deceived to think that they could manage life on their own, without needing Me, so they disobeyed and they hid themselves from Me! Man has been doing that ever since, always trying to hide himself from Me! How foolish that is! None of My children can ever hide from Me, for I see them all the time, no matter where they are and what they are doing!

The same is with you, My child. I know you since eternity, from before you were born! Your own mother and father were chosen by Me to bring you out into this world for a purpose! You were not an accident, but everything in your life was carefully engineered to make you what you are today: My beloved child, in whom I am pleased! I know that you don’t feel like that at the moment, because you are looking at your past mistakes, but the past is past! It was cancelled by My blood and it’s gone! You are forgiven for your mistakes, and are now a new creature. All things are new and you should not look back, but ahead at the things that I have prepared for you, for I know that you love Me and desire to do My will!

Yes, in the past you made mistakes, and the greatest one was that of not remaining true to yourself and the convictions that I placed in your heart, but trying to please those that you thought represented Me. You did it for the right motive, trying to please Me, but I want you to now learn to be true to yourself, not pretending to be something that you are not, but simply being “who” you are and “what” I have made you to be!

You now have a new opportunity to do good, a new chance to start all over again, in a new day, with a new identity and a new purpose! Don’t look back at the past, but look ahead at what I have in store for you! “I make all things new” and I’m about to do a new thing for you! “Old things are passed away; and all things have become new” (2 Cor. 5:17)!

Stand firm in the mercy that you have received from Me, and don’t let yourself be put under the burden and weights of the past, for the past is past! Your sins have been forgiven and washed clean by My blood! Now, simply walk into your future to fulfill your destiny!

Let go of what would keep you back from moving forward, but “stand fast in the liberty with which I have made you free” (Gal. 5:1)! “If the Son has made you free, you are free indeed” (John 8:36)! You can walk in newness of life, not looking back, like “Lot’s wife” (Luke 17:32), but moving forward! That’s what I want you to do, to “hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown” (Rev. 3:11), for it’s yours, if you do what I show you to do! Don’t put yourself under a yoke that is not yours, but walk in the freedom which I have set you free! You are free! You are free indeed! I love you, and “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebr. 13.5)! I will not let go of you, no matter what others might do or say to you! Trust Me and believe My promises!

    Dear brother Renato, Your message (Words From Jesus) so resonate with all who read your post. Just today I was so inspired reading your post that I sent your link to several others to read. In different ways many of us have been holding on to the past. It is so freeing to let go and accelerate in His power with renewed energy toward our goals. One dear friend within hours of my call and her dwelling on your blog post wrote her first blog post and is now moving forward. You continue to provide refreshment for our souls as a clear channel from our heavenly Father Jesus.

    Some have said that the humble do not see their humility. Thank you for not seeing yours! Brother Ben
