HUNTED BY YOUR PAST?

Psalms 32:1-2

Oh, what joy for those who's disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of site. Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt, whose lives are lived in complete honesty. NLT

Deborah aborted her first pregnancy when she was 18, three other abortions followed in succession. She gave her life to Jesus Christ when she was 21. She was now 28 but her bitter past still hunted her; she couldn’t  let go of the old memories, in fact they hunted her dreams. Although Deborah was born again, she lived a depressed life; her heart pounded whenever a preacher or anyone spoke about abortion.

Like Deborah, many Christian are bound by their evil past, their past is their greatest enemy. Read today's text again and you will see that God did not only forgive us, He also cleared the records of our guilt.

2 Corinthian 2:11 reads “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices." KJV

It is the devil's deception that makes you unable to forgive yourself even when God has forgiven you.

Now that God did not pronounce you guilty, all you have to do is live in God's freedom. Whenever your past returns to hunt you, say this to yourself “God cleared the record".

Go into today knowing that God has cancelled the records of the charges against you; He has taken it away by nailing it to the cross (see Colossians 2:14). Note also that God's purpose is not limited by your past.

Prayer: thank you Jesus for clearing the records of my evil past, help me to live in the reality of this truth. Amen
