Perhaps you have a have done something horrible. Perhaps you have a past you regret. Perhaps you are tormented with all the mistakes that you have made. Perhaps you think more about your past than what your future holds. I have lived the torment of the past for years and years. You see everyone of those things that I have mentioned – I have done. I have learned a powerful secret that will release you from the torment of the past.
First I want you to see something. Satan loves to torment you with the past. He loves to see you writhe in the excruciating agony of your past. So keep that in mind the next time he throws the past in your face. Tormenting thoughts of the past are SATANIC.
I have found that these attacks can be so bad that it is good to use the entire arsenal of spiritual ammunition that we are given. If you read all my previous posts you will find many tools to overcome that we should all be using everyday, such as putting on The Armor of God, Fasting and Praying and Taking Authority.
First I am going to tell you that unless you have made Jesus Lord of your life you will never be set free from your past until you make that spiritual decision (see post: How to get to Heaven). If you are truly a believer and living for the Lord you can stand on God’s promises. The word of God will always be your greatest weapon against Satanic forces. This blog should only point you to the Word and increase your appetite for more of God’s Word. Reading God’s word is not enough. To fight Satan you must MEMORIZE God’s word.
Look through the bible and write down 20 bible verses that remind you that your past is forgiven and that it is wrong for the past to continue to torment your thoughts. Each and every day memorize them until you know them all by heart. Here are some good ones to memorize: Rom. 5:19, Rom. 8:1, Gal. 1:4, Gal. 2:16, Gal. 4:7, Eph. 3:20, Eph. 4:22, Eph. 4:23, Eph. 5:8, Eph. 6:10, Eph. 6:14 Eph. 6:16, Phil. 4:7 This is the beginning of finding your spiritual power.
What is the secret that I was talking about?
THE PAST HOLDS NO POWER OVER YOU. That is it. Say that out loud right now 5 times.
Say it all day long – say it in your sleep. Say it each time thoughts of the past torment you. In Christ the only place that you have to move is forward.
“If any man is in Christ he is a new creation – old things (things of your past) have passed away – New things have come.”
Today you are a brand new person. You are not the same person you were 10 years ago, or a year ago, or ten minutes ago. You are a different person.
Say that now “Today I am a new person in Christ.” You should say that daily, hourly.
So you see the powers of hell have no right to prevail upon your mind. It no longer has any power over you.This will be a battle but in the end if you use these tools the past will never torment you again. I know – because I was one of the most tormented.
