The Only Thing of Value

"The only thing of value you have to share with anyone else is what I have done for you."

Don't you go digging through that garbage again! God


I was once asked to give my testimony to a men’s group. The prospect of dredging up my past, bringing to mind things that I had not thought about for years, gave me “bad vibes.”’ So I took a hike up on the mountain to more firmly take hold of what God was trying to show me. Finally somewhere along the Fiery Gizzard trail I was able to hear it.

Don’t you go digging through that garbage again! I cleaned it up, I put a lid on it, and that’s how it needs to stay! Don’t try to figure it out, because there’s nothing to figure out. It’s just evil. Turn your back on it and walk away, otherwise you’ll fall into the same traps all over again.

Whatever your past is, don't let it cast a shadow upon your future. What God has chosen to forget, we should not choose to remember. God doesn't care who you were. He cares who you are. Why not thank Him right now for freeing you from your past?

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
