Have No Regrets. Don’t Look Back. Look At God. He Did That!

Isaiah 43When reflecting on your life, past circumstances will reveal what needed to change. God needed to get your attention, in order that some things change.

You may find yourself filled with regrets wishing you had done things differently. While never understanding why you regret things should have turned out differently.

There were times you should have lost your mind. Yet you made it through. God was there all the time. At times, your pride may have gotten in the way. At which time, you made the best decisions during that time on that day. Nonetheless, when you take a look in the mirror and it is yourself you see. Your past is only a reflection of what needed to happen that you may see. The place God needed to bring you to. The place where you are now, to bring him glory, assured it was God who brought you through.

God could have put you in somebody else place. You could have been in a worse situation where you may have found yourself in an uninviting, unstable place. You could’ve been in somebody else situation. It could not have turned out in your favor, creating a worse situation. God saved you. The blood covered you. Hallelu!

You may never understand why things in life happen the way they do. There’s a reason God does not need you to know all he do. If God showed you everything he planned for you. Or gave you everything he promised you. You would not be able to handle it all beforehand if you knew. Where you are now is where God needs you to be. Say to him, “Lord whatever you’re doing in this season, don’t do it without me.”

When things fall apart, all you’ll see is God. In your brokenness, you’ll see the Lord. All other ground is sinking sand. On Christ the solid rock, stand. You’ve been through the storm and through the rain. You made it. God reigns! “Paul reminds us that though we may think we are at the end of our rope, we are never at the end of our hope” (2 Co 4:8-12).

No matter what you’ve been through, God has been good to you. You made it to see another day, in spite of trials met yesterday. Take a step back. Envision where you were this time, long ago. You’ve come this far by faith. God was in control.

Have no regrets. Don’t look back. Say, “Look at God. He did that!”

Be blessed! –JD

Isaiah 43:1-3 “But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” (ESV)

  2. Amen!
    Even in the darkest day, he is our light! It’s sometimes easy to forget these words of promise, especially when the mind has wandered so far away because of despondency and fear. These times of reminders, brings that light we talk about :).
    Thank you Joy, for yet another one.
