I know many times I feel like I'm in my own density... especially when I realize that I must have had my brain unplugged because I just said the wrong thing to the wrong person and messed things up royally! But you know what? Even the wrong words can be fixed with just a little love.
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. ~1 Peter 4:8, NLT
The problem we have with our density though is that we let our history kill our destiny! Instead of moving on, we wallow in what we did in the past, worrying over what happened, what we said, how we handled a situation, or just the fact that plain and simple... we messed up.
Maybe you said, "I'm sorry." Maybe you were not forgiven. So instead of getting over it, you sit and think about it, worry over it, and allow that mistake to fester and keep you from moving forward. I have been there, too. I know that I have had many, many "oopsie-daisy" moments in my life. And I'm sure there will be others. I'm human! But where humans would love to keep those transgressions close to them and dredge them back up any and every time they see you, GOD DOES NOT!
But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. ~1 John 1:9, NLT............................. And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins." ~Hebrews 8:12, NLT
Family in Christ, we do not have time to repeat history. We do not have time to wallow in the "wish I would have's" the "should'a, could'a, woulda's" of life and allow the enemy to use people to keep us in our history and away from our DESTINY!
Your History WILL destroy your DESTINY if you let it. Look at Paul. Before God changed his name to Paul, SAUL was a pretty bad fella. He actually went to the authorities and got a paper stating that he could hunt down and kill Christians...just because they were Jesus followers! But an amazing thing happened when he was on his way to the hunt. Jesus showed up and changed his life! Paul was never the same after that! And he told people of his history only as an example... but he didn't relive it.
... but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on the reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus is calling us. ~Philippians 3:13b-14, NLT
Look at Moses, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Rahab... They did not let their history kill their destiny! You shouldn't either.
It doesn't matter what's in your past. It doesn't matter what your history dictates. You CAN rise above it. History dictates that my life should be in shambles right now. Because over and over growing up, and even after I married and had children, it was drilled into me that "depression and cancer run in our family." Well guess what? I DON'T HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT! Why? Because God has great big plans for me, that's why!
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope..." ~Jeremiah 29:11, NLT (emphasis added)
Don't be like George McFly. Step into your DESTINY and leave your density and your history behind... where they belong.
