Has Your Past Paralyzed You?

Isaiah 43:16-21

The Message (MSG)

16-21This is what God says, the God who builds a road right through the ocean,  who carves a path through pounding waves,The God who summons horses and chariots and armies – they lie down and then can’t get up;  they’re snuffed out like so many candles:   “Forget about what’s happened;  don’t keep going over old history.   Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.    It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?There it is!  I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands.Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’    -the coyotes and the buzzards-   Because I provided water in the desert,  rivers through the sun-baked earth,  Drinking water for the people I chose,  the people I made especially for myself,  a people custom-made to praise me.”



Episode Synopsis: Warehouse 13

In this episode the agents were given a mission to find “Warehouse 2” not knowing that another entity was trying to prevent their discovery.   They were almost destroyed when they were confronted with past events in their lives.  This entity knew if it could keep them focused on the past where they were happier they would not move forward. Their emotions were so overwhelming that their physical bodies stopped moving.  The ground around them almost consumed them until one person realized something was wrong and she was able to snap the others back to reality where they were able to complete the journey.


Personal note:

Staying focused on the past will keep you from moving forward to your destiny.  It would be so easy to stay where you are.  It’s called your “comfort zone”.  So you made a few mistakes in the past.  So your life is not where it was a few years ago.  So you don’t have enough money in the bank.  So you thought your job was secure. So you thought your life was perfect. So you thought you would be out of that apartment. So so so so… The past has paralyzed you.


Isaiah 55:8 New Living Translation:

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.    “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”

Summing it all up:
