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!
