Anyone who has served God long enough knows that He is a God of the future. He cancels our sins and gives us the opportunity to hope again.
But what about the past? Is God involved in our past? Absolutely.
I encounter people from time-to-time who have been forgiven by God, but are worried that their past will come back to haunt them. This keeps them in bondage and renders them unable to move into their future. Terrorized by yesterday’s transgressions, they lose hope.
WE BELIEVE GOD HAS NO PROTECTION PLAN AGAINST OUR PAST. HOWEVER, HE DOES.
Most of the things we fear that will come upon us never do. There’s a reason why. God has been orchestrating things in your favor in ways that you will never know. God is protecting you from your past harming you. He does not lift His hand off your past and allow it to run wild to destroy your future. He has silenced your accusers, softened the judge’s heart, and prepared scenarios of victory when you expect tragedy.
It is statistically proven that most of what we fear never happens. So relax. Second, even if what you fear does come upon you, that fact that you love God and want to live according to His purposes means that God is going to work it all together for good anyway.
God is the God of the past, present, and future. Give all three dimensions to Him and watch Him work it out.
God’s got your back.
