Pastor Chris White says to all of your: HELLO MY FRIENDS. May the Lord bless you today.
HOLA MIS AMIGOS. Que el Señor los bendiga.
Good news for you! – Are Other People’s Feelings Holding You Hostage? This Is what God’s word says to you:
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)
18“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Isaiah 43:18
13Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Let’s do not let other people’s feelings hold us Hostage, we are not responsible for other people’s feelings.
Looking Back to Yesterday Makes Us Unfit for God’s Purpose Today
Jesus said, “anyone who … looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.” That may sound harsh, but it’s true: God is the God who keeps doing new things, and if we look back, we will surely miss out on what He wants to do today.
In Isaiah 43:18-19, God says, “Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over times gone by; I am doing something new; it’s springing up — can’t you see it?”
Whatever our past experiences may be, we must stop looking back to it to see God moving today!
Looking Back to Yesterday Makes Us Swerve Left and Right
God told Joshua, “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do.” (v. 1:7) If we want to go forward in a straight line, we should never look back. We won’t see where we are going if we always look back to where we came from.
Looking Back Might Cause Us to Worry and Unnecessarily Anxiety
Preoccupation with concerns will hinder a person from following Christ. I am not saying that to say good-bye to family to serve God or caring for them is wrong. In fact, the Bible says we must take care of them. Even Jesus did that up to the point of death on the cross. But anything that will cause us to worry and lose focus on God’s priorities for us will hinder us from pursuing Him.
If we want to follow God, we must avoid dwelling on things other than His will for us. Jesus said we can’t put our hands on the plow to serve Him and look back to other things. Luke9:62
