How to overcome your past (Audio message)

If you have enjoyed the messages on how to overcome your past then I have this teaching available as an audio download.  For more information go to:

Leave your past in the past

For those following this blog you would have read about how God sees our past and how we can walk in victory over our past once and for all.   While information on what God's Word says is a great start for any breakthrough it is not enough on its own.  We need to also put that information to work and apply it to our daily life to see that truth become a reality in our life.  This can be as simple as starving the lies and feeding on the truth of who we are in Christ.  This may seem like a constant battle at first but the more you feed on the truth the stronger that truth becomes.

So always remember that if you are in Christ – then it no longer matters what you have done, or haven’t done or even what has been done to you in your past.

Jesus came to set the captives free!  Whether you are captive to sin, emotional or physical pain, anxiety, sickness, disease, taunts from your past! 

Therefore, bring your past, no matter what happened to the Cross.  Jesus took all your pain, and shame.  He paid the price so you can be forgiven, healed, delivered, and set free from the stain and power of sin and be made whole!  See your past as God sees it – IT IS FINISHED!

Rom 6:6 – tells us that our old self was crucified [past tense] with Christ!  This means that we are now dead to sin, dead to sickness and disease, dead to pain, shame and condemnation and we are alive to God!

Gal 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Most of us need to be delivered from our ‘selves!’  We need to lose a ‘self’ consciousness and gain a ‘God’ consciousness.  Self-consciousness is a self-awareness, where our focus becomes all about ‘me’.  We must get over our ‘self’ and begin to believe who we are in Christ and what we have received in Him.  So from this moment on count yourself dead to sin, to guilt, shame, condemnation and from whatever happened in your past and start counting yourself alive to the power of God!

The rest will be history!
