Daily Devotional – 11/23/16 “Divorce or Delay?”

Some of you are suffering in your present because you’ve yet to divorce your past. Think about it. How well can a new relationship work if you keep allowing your ex to walk into your house when he/she feels like it, giving his/her two cents on what you should be doing? Every time you get ready to move forward in your new relationship, your ex shows up whispering sweet nothings in your ear. What you haven’t realized is, it’s only long enough to ruin what you’re in and then he/she is gone again. Well, this is the same for your present self because nothing will work as long as you keep letting the past show up anytime it feels like it. 

You’re an anointed being yet your past keeps reminding you of all the stuff you used to do, so now you won’t use the power of God that’s coursing through you. You want to do better but your past keeps letting itself in and with it comes the memories of who you used to be, making you think you can’t be anything more. Well today, I’ve come to serve you notice. Either you divorce the past or you’ll most likely find yourself in this same place, next year. It won’t matter how many resolutions you make, vision boards you create and goals you write down because you’ll still have the past in your ear. 

So you decide … divorce or delay?
