When you finally get a mind to start again, to let go of your past mistakes, to erase your own negative thinking and embrace God's view - there's always somethingor someone who will happily come along to remind you of your failures. To remind you of the you you've left behind. To bring back the you that God's forgiven and granted grace and mercy.
Don't allow the words of others to negatively impact your fresh start. It doesn't matter if your mistake was 10 years ago or 10 minutes ago. You keep holding on to who you are in Christ and protect your progress!
Keep the Word of God in your spirit, before your eyes, in your ears - wherever you need it to be to drown out anything that is trying to come against it! Remind yourself of the truth of God's Word. Don't give in to the lie of the enemy.
The enemy will do all he can to keep you from moving forward in what God has called you to embody. So you do everything you can to make sure the devil's plans fail at every turn.
Keep pushing forward! Never give up! If it's one step - protect that step forward at all costs. Don't step back, don't sit down. Stand firm and don't give in to the enemy. God is with you in everything you do.
