Don’t Reopen Healed Wounds
Beloved, stop reopening healed wounds. Scripture says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy” (Philippians 4:8 VOICE).
I hear the Spirit say, “Pay attention to where your thoughts wander as you go through your day. Meditate on the honorable, don’t allow the relentless replay of the events of yesterday with its emotions, offenses and fears. Dwelling on the past hinders your ability to move forward into the future. You shackle yourself to the past and its fears, offenses, and pitfalls when you give in to those thoughts. Take them captive, cast them at MY feet, and allow My Spirit to redirect and refocus your thoughts. I have such plans and such purpose for you, I AM well able to accomplish it, yet I desire you to partner with ME and give the enemy no ground in your thought life. Meditate on MY Word, the promises I have given you and My faithfulness. Fix your thoughts on Me and My goodness, let go of yesterday.”
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:1-2 NKJV).
