It’s Time For A Divorce

It’s time to let go of the past. It’s time for a divorce!

We can’t stay married to our past, our past is gone. It’s not God’s plan for us. We have to learn to let go of that which does not belong in our life. We can’t change the past, and we can’t reverse it, but we can remember it.

Some things in our past, we have held on to for so long, it has become a part of our everyday living. We live as if it’s still there. We can’t move forward because we won’t let it go.

Divorce yourself from your past. Stop carrying the weight of what has already happened. Let it go! Leave it where it is — in the past. God wants you to move forward in your life.

Philippians 3:13 (KJV) – brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.

Self Efforts

Men and women, from the beginning of time, are looking for a husband or a wife. In time past, the man always seek the woman. It was improper for a woman to seek a man. Nowadays, it’s very common for the woman to seek after the man.

Regardless, if you are meant to be with someone, you don’t have to make special efforts to prove yourself, compete or impress someone that is meant for you. Competition and impressing others is the work of the flesh, which is a never ending battle. Self-efforts is very stressful and draining.

What God wants for you, will be revealed to you, and the other person. What’s meant for you, is only for you, not for someone else. Stop trying so hard to get what is not meant for you to have.

Proverbs 18:22 (KJV) – whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.

Galatians 5:16 (KJV) – this I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

I’ll Think About It

Most often, we expect others to treat us the way we want to be treated, but we don’t always treat others the way we want to be treated.

When we treat others bad, in essence we are saying, this is how we want to be treated. But when we are treated bad, we don’t understand why. We are reaping what we have sown.

Lose the concept of; “treat me good and I’ll think about treating you good”, for we will reap what we have sown. But treat others the way you want to them to treat you.

Galatians 6:7 (KJV) – be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Matthew 7:12 (KJV) – therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.

Only For A Season

Our struggles are only for a season. Remember, only for a season.

When we have gone through our struggles, we find that we are much stronger than we were, before we went through them. That’s if we have learned from them.

Know that everything you go through is between you and God. Never between you and someone else, but you and God.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) – to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Deliver Me Lord

When we are praying to be delivered from something, know that Satan will tempt us with that very thing we want to be delivered from.

When we fast, or go on a diet, your temptation will be food. Everything looks and smells great, but know that it is satan.

Whatever it is we’re praying to be delivered from, Satan can and will tempt us, and make us think it’s from God. He knows how to tempt us with what we like, and make us think that is what we want.

Jesus was tempted just like we are. Therefore, know that God will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able to handle, but will make a way for you to get out of the temptation.

Hebrews 4:15 (KJV) – for we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

I Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) – there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Winning While You’re Losing

We are to die to ourself, daily. We are to give up what does not belong in us, give up to that which does not fit who we are. We are to let go of the flesh . . . daily.

When you let go of those things that doesn’t fit who you are, it may seem like you’re losing, but you are actually winning.

Trust God. You can never lose with Him.

Luke 9:23 (KJV) – and he said to them all, if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Philippians 1:21 (KJV) – for to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Philippians 3:14 (KJV) – I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

What Do You See

We are quick to presume the end result based on what we see. That’s because, we are easily lead to believe in what we see, quicker than believing in the word of God.

Scripture tell us to trust God whole heartily, and not to go by our own understanding. God is always working things out behind the scenes.

Faith is trusting in God’s word, which is truth, rather than trusting in what you see.

Psalm 118:8 (KJV) – it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Proverbs 3:5 (KJV) – trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) – now faith is the substance of things hope for, the evidence of things not seen.
