Why You Should Not Regret The Past And Worry About The Future

Two things usually bring the Christian down: they are: Remorse over the past, and worry over the future; and God’s word forbids from doing either. What has happened till now is past and there is little we can do to undo it. It is what men term as ‘water under the bridge.

But for the Christian, there is always hope no matter how bad his/her past may have been. The Apostle’s admonition is forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before”! [Phil 3:13]. Now this is easier said than done. Memories of the past constantly haunt us and the results of our past mistakes most often staring us in the face. And if we were without God like most worldly people the future would be pretty bleak. But we have a God who is SOVEREIGN and with whom all things are possible.

Our God can and does overrule any mistake or sins of our past for His glory! In the Old Testament, the Lord told His people. “I will RESTORE to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

Now ponder the above verse very prayerfully! God says He can and will restore what you think may hopelessly be lost, and in the end, you will never be ashamed. This is one of the amazing things about God. He can take our broken dreams and make a miracle out of our lives.

The more we learn how sovereign our God is, the more we can be assured that He is in COMPLETE CONTROL of all that has transpired in our lives. If you are a Christian, then you know that God did not spare His only begotten Son to save you.
