Paralysis From Past Mistakes
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:11-12, NKJV)
Do not let any of the things of the world or past mistakes paralyze your hearts. I believe there are Christians who have allowed some of their past mistakes to paralyze them. You were so bright and cheerful in your spiritual life once, and then you made some tragic mistake or had something happen to you. You got out of it somehow, and prayed and wept your way out of it. But it did something to you, and now you cannot lick it. Past wrongs that have been done to you, past failures, times you thought you were going to win and did not, or present sins or discouragement-these things are not mental at all. They are deeper than that; they are subconscious, and they prevent us from believing.
I most urgently exhort you, and I trust God Almighty to deliver you; to sponge that out of your spirit; to sponge that out of your heart so you are not hindered by unbelief. – A.W. Tozer, Rut, Rot or Revival: The Condition of the Church, pp. 162-163
Gracious Father, oftentimes we are paralyzed with fear and guilt over our past sins and mistakes. Jesus, You came to set us free from this bondage. Empower us, Holy Spirit, to walk in newness of life. In Jesus name, Amen.
