Entering the New Season – part 3 Don’t Dwell in the Past

19 01 2017

2017Last time we looked at the key of Forgetting in our series of how to enter the new season, today we look at the second key. Dwelling and where we are to dwell as we continue in Isaiah 43.


“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Isaiah 43:18-19


Let us define the word dwell:

  • Live in or at a specified place.
  • Think, speak, or write at length about (a particular subject, especially one that is a source of unhappiness, anxiety, or dissatisfaction).


Once we forget the former things, we have to stop living there. We have to come out of the past. 2 Cor 5:17 needs to be ever before us in 2017, for those who accept Yeshua as Messiah are dwellinga new creation, the old has gone and the new is here! So you and I must resist our internal voice of the past which brings condemnation, that voice of mom, dad or other authority figure. There is a spark of truth which still hurts. That isn’t the devil. It is the past. You must take authority over the pain and hurt of the past, deal with the pain when God calls you to, and forget the former things walking completely with every ounce of your body, soul and spirit into the new thing!


I pray for each of you, I see the Lord blessing you, I see the Lord’s grace being poured out upon your past, that in that place of grace the peace of God which passes all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Yeshua Messiah as you walk into the new things which await you in 2017!

Join me next time as we look at the new thing God is doing in your life!

Blessings and Complete Joy,

What is Our Mission Part 3

22 10 2011

Last time we talked about the ministry of reconciliation and how God reconciled us to himself through the death of Jesus.


     Reconciliation begins with God and ministry of reconciliation which God then gave to us. Often we forget the message of reconciliation was committed to us by God (2 Corinthians 5:19b-20.) It isn’t enough that you and I become Christians, or if we forgive one another. The evidence of our reconciliation comes as we express the message, the truth of how reconciliation has affected our own lives. 


     With a word, God created the world and reality of both our change and the change possible in another’s life comes as we are willing to share what God has done for us. How many of us wouldn’t be in the kingdom of God if someone else hadn’t shared what God did in their lives.


     So many people who grew up going to church never received the personal revelation of Christ because they never saw real people’s lives changed.  So many churches forgot to allow for a time of testimony, choosing instead to have classes on evangelism as if the message of reconciliation was the message was relegated to a chosen few. When we don’t see personal life change-up close and personal we can begin to keep God at arm’s length and as we do we can no longer feel the love and passion the Lord has for each of us.


     Never stop sharing the message of reconciliation which God has uniquely put in you to share, because that message will change the world around you, not because of whom you are but because of whom God is in you!
