Are your past mistakes and failures holding you back? Are you struggling to forgive yourself? Take the failures back to the cross of Jesus and leave them there.
Consider what the Apostle Paul wrote about and did himself. You may remember, Paul was the one who persecuted Christians and held the coats of the ones who were murdering followers of Jesus.
Then, Paul had an encounter with the risen Savior on the road to Damascus and everything changed for him. He repented, changed his ways and became an ardent follower of the Lord Jesus for the rest of his life. He is even responsible for writing much of the New Testament.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17.
How was it that Paul managed to overcome his past regrets and be free from the impact of those old memories? Much in the same way that you and I can be set free–by taking them to the cross and leaving them there. By meditating on, and allowing the truth of God’s Word to renew our mind daily.
Paul meditated on what Jesus had already done for him. He accepted the blood of Jesus shed for his sins, and he used the Name of Jesus in prayer until his spirit was fully cleansed and restored. You and I can do the same today.
Any day that you are reminded of your “past” and it starts speaking contrary to what the Word of God says about you, run to the communion table. I’m talking about a ‘personal communion’ between you and the Lord. Set the cup and the bread before you…and remember what Jesus has already accomplished for YOU.
Fix your mind and memory on Jesus, not on yourself. When you eat the bread (representing the body of Jesus), and drink of the cup (representing the Lord’s shed blood), force yourself to behold the Lamb of God Who has taken away the sin of the world… including your sins, your failures and your shortcomings too. Jesus has forgiven you and made all things new in your life. Discipline yourself to think on Jesus. And give Him those burdens once again.
You are a NEW creation in Christ Jesus EVERY DAY. Don’t let the past choke out your future. Thank God you can bury the “Old You” because of what Jesus did on that cross at Calvary. He is entirely faithful.
“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.
There is only One God. Jesus is His Son and He is the Messiah. He didn’t come to the world 2,000 years ago to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. Tell someone about Jesus Christ this week. Share your testimony. And continue to call upon the name of Jesus in your personal life daily–thanking Him that your sins are under His blood and you are forgiven.

“Great message, thank you Paula!! As believers navigate the path of Christian living this message (How To Release God’s Power In Your Life) is far more important than most people realize.
