We cannot hold the past more sacred than today. 

Maybe you are agreeing with me wholeheartedly.

But do you believe it?

It’s just who I am, deal with it.

I am the way I am because of what she/he/that did to me.

I’m not capable of doing that. It’s for someone else.

If any of these fall from your lips, the past is more sacred than today.

It’s more sacred than what God wants to do inside of you with His great power.

Exchange it with truth: The past does not get to limit who you are becoming. It doesn’t get to say what God can or cannot do in your heart. It doesn’t get to keep you stuck when God intended for you to fly with wings of eagles.

Isaiah 30:21 says, “And your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, “This is the way, walk in it.’ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left” (ESV).

Think about a time you sensed that God was leading you in some way; maybe it was to not say something, or to think about it in a different way. Describe that time here. 

Q: Have you held the past more sacred than today? What might that look like in real life?

Q: In what way do you sense God asking you to hold today more sacred than the past?
