YOUR PAST IS OVER AND DONE WITH

Tb Joshua, The SCOAN, Emmanuel TV

If you want to be successful in life, do not look back; it is a dangerous thing to do unless it is meant to glorify God for what He has done in your life. Be a forward looker. Discovery is for forward lookers. – TB Joshua

Jesus is a tomorrow thinker. We are made in our heart to be like Him. To be like Jesus is our goal. If you would be like Jesus, you are to be a tomorrow thinker. He is not so much concerned about our present as our future. Jesus said to the woman caught in the act of adultery, “Well then, I do not condemn you either. Go, but do not sin again” (John 8:11). When He met the man He healed at the pool of Bethesda, Jesus said to him, “See, you are well again, stop sinning or something worse may happen to you” (John 5:14).

In these passages, Jesus was simply sending the same message to both the adulterous woman and the man He healed at the pool: Both of them were rescued from death by His grace. He was like saying to them, ‘See, your past is over now; stop looking back or something worse might happen to you. I am not interested in your unworthy past. Now that you are sanctified and cleansed by the words I have spoken to you, you should remain cleansed. It is very dangerous to look back; focus on your future and I am that future’.

When your past is over, your accuser would flee because the only thing that connects you to him is your past. He has no other information about you. The Bible says, satan is our accuser. If you want to be successful in life, do not look back; it is a dangerous thing to do unless it is meant to glorify God for what He has done in your life. Be a forward looker. Discovery is for forward lookers. It is by looking forward that you discover new things, new horizons and new opportunities you would not have ordinarily dreamt of.

Remember only faith pleases God, and faith focuses on God instead of our past. It acts now, believes now, receives now and confesses now. If you are to solve today’s problems, using the approach of yesterday, you would not make a difference. Therefore, you must change your attitude, character, general approach to life, in order to reset your mind.
