Isaiah 43:18-19 (King James Version)

 

18Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God wants His people to move forward. Too many times the believer finds themselves going back to their old past. God does not want you to go there. The devil on the other hand wants you to walk in your old past. Believers you have been given the greatest opportunity to start over. Many people start over but find themselves back in the past. Like that old movie Back to the Future. We should not go backwards but forwards. We learned from that movie that these two men were trying to change their future by going back to the past. We as Christians cannot change our future by going back to our past. We change our future by pressing on and reaching forward.

In this scripture God is telling us not to remember the former things. Why? Because when we go backwards there tends to be lot’s of hurts and disappointments. God does not want His people to be discouraged but He wants us to be encouraged. God says in His Word that He will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth. So, when are we going to start seeing new things. In this scripture we need to look at the word NOW.

The word now is defined as, at the present time or moment. God wants to bless us now. He does not want us to dwell in the past or dream about the past. God wants to do something great now. The fact of the matter is that we tend to focus on the past instead of the here and now. When we focus on the current circumstances we tend to be negative. Change your mindset and decide to be positive. Change your speech and start speaking God’s Word.

If you have had a prophetic word spoken over you and you have not reminded yourself of that word, then go back and look for that prophetic word. God was speaking to you about what you are supposed to have now. What will you do with what God has given to you? Are you a blessed person? Do you know, God loves you so much that He does not want you to not remember your old past or your old ways? Do you know God loves you so much that He wants to do a new thing in you? Are you paying attention to your past or are you paying attention to the Word of God?

Sometimes I have to ask God for help, so that I will not dwell on my past. God wants to do great things in me and my church. God wants my ministry to prosper and be full of love. So when I start to feel down or look back to my old past,  I have to say, “No, devil, I will not dwell there!” God has forgiven me of my past and He is blessing me now at this present moment. Glory to God, Jesus is still alive. God’s not dead, He’s still alive and He is watching over me. You are a blessing to the Lord and He loves you. Walk in the present and be blessed. You’re not dead so act alive and be alive in Christ.
