Write it down—then tear it up!

March 28, 2017

“Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” 
Php 3:13 NKJV There will always be people who speak ill of you. “She’ll never amount to anything… His parents were nothing, his grandparents were nothing, and he’s going to be nothing too!” The question is: Who are you going to believe, God or your critics? According to Scripture: “Anyone…in Christ…is a new creation; old things have passed away…all things have become new” (2Co 5:17 NKJV). God says that by His grace you’re going to prove your critics wrong, so stop listening to their negative predictions. Stop believing the family members, schoolteachers, employers, and so-called “friends” who try to put you down. Turn a deaf ear to racism and sexism. Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (Jn 8:32 NIV). Renew your mind daily with the truth of God’s Word (See Ro 12:1-2). You may have been abused, misused, rejected, and neglected, but it’s time to forget those things that are behind and start reaching forward. When God speaks a word over your life, as far as He’s concerned it has already been accomplished; it’s “a done deal!” Now it’s your job to believe it, speak it, and walk in the reality of it each day. When someone says something that leaves a scar on your heart and mind, do this: (1) Write it down on a piece of paper. (2) Ask God to help you forgive them and to erase the scar. (3) Tear up the paper, toss it into the garbage, and “press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Php 3:14 NKJV).
