Who Gives Kudos:



Stop Giving Your Past Permission to Speak


Stop giving your past permission to speak !!


Jer 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  NIV


God has a plan for your life.  And that plan is to prosper not harm; to give hope and a future.  What an awesome plan!!!  God’s Word teaches us that He loves us and wants the best for us. God is ever present and always watchful.  He does not consult your past to justify his blessings on your future.     


It is difficult to look towards our future when we are constantly allowing our past to speak.  Maybe mistakes have been made in the past.  Failure is not final, but it can be used as fertilizer to help us grow.  We must take the adversities of this life and allow them to become stepping stones into our future.   No one has ever become great overnight. 


There are many celebrities who have overcome obstacles in their past and pushed forward into their future.  James Earl Jones overcame a stuttering problem as a child, now we have the pleasure of hearing him speak in a deep baritone voice.  Halle Berry, well known actress was diagnosed with diabetes and fell into a diabetic coma 7 years ago.  Michael Jordan, cut from his high school basket ball team, later to become one of the greatest NBA players. These celebrities did not allow their past to speak into their future.  They continued moving towards the future that was ahead of them becoming men and women we all know and love.


 Zig Zigler said: “Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful”.   Successful people do not allow the past to tell them what can or cannot be done.  Today, make a non-negotiable decision you will not allow your past to speak into your future.  The first thing we must do is change our mind.  The bible says be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.  You are what you think!  Some of us have given up on our dreams because of what others have said.  We have to encourage ourselves with the knowledge that God has a good plan for our lives and even if we don’t understand the plan we can trust it. 


We must be prayerfully persistent.  Or as I like to say, we must watch and pray.  Maybe we got off on the wrong road or made an wrong turn, or possibly headed down a one way street,  it’s okay if we have to make a U-Turn or change directions.  The point is it is God who will lead and guide us.  A man’s heart devises’ his ways but the Lord orders his steps.  It’s time to re-position yourself.   Expect something great out of life today.  Don’t get comfortable with compromise.  The only person that can stop you from becoming all you were destined to be is YOU…. God Loves You and so do I….. Pastor Tammy
