Satan Wants You Stuck in The Past of Unforgiveness – Letting Go and Moving ON
Learning how Letting Go and Moving On from Past Unforgiveness from Others. We must learn how to let go of the past and move forward in our lives.
Satan wants you stuck in the land of remembrance that continues to stir up pain, hurt, fear, and a stronghold of unfogiveness. The more we replay, the more the stronghold is formed that makes it harder to let go.
He wants you to replay in your mind what everyone has done to you. Yes, people can break your heart. The pain is real. That emotional pain can cause real physical pain that is demonic.
Satan is the king of the past in the land of garbage to get you to replay (roll in the garbage) to feel all the pain of the hurt of what others have done. I call it self-pity, the super glue that holds you to the hell of your past. You cannot move forward when looking backwards. Letting go and moving on from past hurts and unforgiveness brings freedom.
Jesus is the king of the present and future. Jesus was you to live now with peace and joy moving into the future with hope becoming more like Him as we die to self and living in victory and blessings.
The land of the garbage is the land of negative emotions, hurts and pain. He does no want you to forgive or have a future. He wants you on bondage (either with physical sickness, mental diseases, emotional pain). Satan wants you stuck.
Jesus wants us lett go and moving on, forgive others and experience freedom from pain and hurt but have unspeakable you.
1 Peter 1:7-9King James Version (KJV)
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
When we forgive and let go, Jesus can start the process of healing emotionally, spiritually, physically because he loves you so much and so deep and wide. Unforgiveness is a block to healing.
Ephesians 3:18 “May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;”
How do you forgive when it hurts so very much?
First, we need to see people as people. People, like ourselves, have been hurt and hurt people hurt people.
A question? Do you have high expectation on people to meet a need in your life? I know I used too. That will set you up to continually get hurt and broken with a broken wounded spirit. Jesus is the only one who can truly meet that need. So let go of those high expectations. Learn to enjoy people.
1) forgive them. Letting go and moving on. Letting go of someone or others who have hurt you. So, learn how to how to let someone go emotionally no matter how much it hurts.
2) Give them over to the Lord. Vengeance belongs to the Lord.
3) Stop replaying old memories of the hurts and pain they inflicted on you.
4) pray for them.
What pray for them? Yes. God’s word says
Matthew 5:44King James Version (KJV)
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Why? When you pray, it changes your heart and keeps the bitterness out. So, when I feel like replaying a bad memory, I make another choice to pray for them instead.
5) Also, when they come to mid, cast sit down. Tell the enemy you have already forgiven them.
2 Corinthians 10:5King James Version (KJV)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Cast down bitterness. Whatever emotion you feel when they come to mind. It may be feelings of rejection, abandonment, sadness, hurt, cast it down.
Say, I can you down rejection! Use God’s word as an antidote!
Then say, God will never reject me according to Romans 11:1-12
Did you know that your Father in Heaven will never reject you?
God loves us because he chooses to love us in spite of our failures. He loved us while we were still sinners, (Romans 5:8) and he will never stop loving us.
When their is a breach (unforgiveness) towards others, self or god, hurt stays alive and fear enters into your heart.
The whole gospel of Jesus Christ is based on this.
Matthew 22:37-40King James Version (KJV)
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Let’s be doers of God’s Word.
Joyce Meyer says three steps
Three Steps to Let Go of Regret:
Admit your weaknesses, failures and mistakes.
Each time you fall short of the mark of perfection, the enemy will try to convince you that you’re in trouble with God. But the truth is, your sins are covered in Christ…and God loves you no matter what!
Rather than running from God in fear or retreating in shame, lean in to the God who loves you. Talk to Him openly about your weaknesses, failures and mistakes.
God’s Word says:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.1 John 1:9
Repent of any wrongdoing.
Repentance means you’re sincerely sorry and you want to make a lifestyle change. If you’re not ready to repent, ask God to help you get there. If you are ready to repent, then set your mind to do the right thing next time.
You may need to accept the consequences of your actions, but you don’t have to spend another minute in regret!
God’s Word says:
Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.Acts 3:19
Trust God to work it out for your good!
God is good and, no matter what happens, He can make all things work out for your good! Rather than complaining about your situation or choosing a negative outlook, honor God by adopting an attitude of faith.
Pray a prayer of thanks: God, I know that when I let go and give You control, good things happen in my life. Thank You for loving me enough to make all things—even the messes I’ve made for myself—work out for my benefit. I pray that as I grow stronger spiritually, You will receive the glory. Amen.
