Beloved, the big issues of life are more than obvious. However it is the little thoughts‚Ä¶the little foxes along the way which consistently accuse you on an ongoing basis. These little thoughts have a tendency to build and build making mountains out of molehills. When this happens, like stones in a wall, they eventually block your pathway of freedom to the other side.
Beloved, they may even be side issues relating to many big matters at hand or a past which seems to be catching up to you. The past is the past and all you can do is repent and speak My Word of restoration and deliverance over it. Do not revisit the past. Press on to higher more stable ground. I will lead you to a large place where you can prevail if only you believe Me. This is where trust comes in.
When the chickens come home to roost, just ask Me if there is anything‚Ä¶any residue of the past in need of repentance on your part. If so, then just confess and repent as the Holy Spirit leads you. I have told you so many times and it bears repeating once again; confession and repentance are your best friends.
Once you have done this, do what is right according to the Word. Forgive yourself as I have already forgiven you. Know it is I who turned rock into a pool of water and flint into a fountain of waters (Psalms 114:8).
Therefore, Let the fountain of My presence flow with mercy and grace. I will take care of the rest. I will contend for your fountain‚Ä¶for your life…Read Complete Love Letter
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters (Psalms 114:7-8 Amplified)
Lord, thank you for helping me to recognize all the little thoughts which consistently accuse me on an ongoing basis. Help me to take captive every thought and imagination exalting itself above the knowledge of Your Word. As I do this, I thank you for keeping the pathway of freedom open for Your presence to flow through me as You discern the true motive of my heart; love.
I will not continue to revisit the past, but willfully choose to forget those things now behind me. I boldly press forward toward the mark of my high calling in Christ Jesus. When I see things I need to confess and repent I will do so quickly, forgiving myself as well as others. I praise You Lord for the fountain of Your presence flowing in and through me with mercy and grace. Your mercies are indeed new every morning. Amen
- Do you struggle with forgiving yourself?
- Are you more willing to forgive others than you are yourself? If so ask the Lord to show you why or what in your past which causes you to walk in unforgiveness toward yourself.
- Write out a confession of willingness to accept the Lord‚Äôs sacrifice for you in the areas you struggle‚Ä¶areas of unforgiveness toward God, yourself and others. Name some.
- Practice recognizing the little thoughts used to condemn you, and then apply the Word of God to take those thoughts captive. Systematically eliminate them one by one according to the truth of His Word.
