There will be times when we reflect, that we will regret certain things in the past. But regret will not bring the healing we need to free us from the emotional pain the situation brought into our lives. Regret is a tool of the enemy to keep us feeling sad, angry, bitter, guilty, condemned and ashamed. This how the devil works to oppress our minds and keep beating us down!
Instead of regret, God wants us to repent, receive forgiveness and be healed from the pain so that we can keep moving forward with Him into greater things.
That’s why God says,
“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19) (NKJV)
Regardless of what happened in the past, God has a new season for you. He has the plan for your life, His plan is good and it is to take you further than you have ever been if you trust Him with the process.
As you listen to this Podcast Episode you will be encouraged, and strengthened to keep your eyes focused on Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith. In the worst of time the Lord can make an oasis in the desert.
