FRESH START - MOVING PASS OUR PAST 01/06/18 part 2

We Must Be Able to Move Pass our Pass!

Scripture Reading:

Genesis 41:51-52 KJV. “And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

 

FORGETTING WHAT IS BEHIND US

KEY  PHRASES:

1. Remember ye not the former things

2. Former have pasted don't be stuck in the past

3. The Fresh & New will come as we move forward and not hold on to the past

“ Forgetting means you are able to move past the past and move forward for what God has planned for your life, nothing greater than living for God and living the plan he has for your life and to not be entangled or trapped by the past! ”

* Manasseh - Jospeh The Lord has caused me to forget   

A Classic Case In Moving Past the Past

Genesis 41:51-52 KJV. “And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

THE PAST

  1. Jealousy and Betrayal Joseph was Sold as a Slave
  2. Joseph was wrongly accused of sexual misconduct and did prison time behind it. 
  3. Joseph was forgotten in prison after doing good (some guys come out with a great attitude and some don't)

Genesis 50:15-19 KJV. “And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying, So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?”

Genesis 50:18-21 KJV “And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

JOSEPH COULD HAVE:

  1. He could have gotten side tracked by lust and sin with temptation 
  2. He could have allowed himself to be poisoned by bitterness resentment and hate 
  3. He could have gotten caught up while in prison because of what was done to him

JOSEPH'S POWERFUL ATTITUDE: 

  1. HE SERVED WITH A GREAT SPIRIT IN SPITE OF ILL TREATMENT 
  2. HE POSSESSED A GREAT SPIRIT OF FORGIVENESS AND DIDN’T ALLOW HATERS AND JEALOUSY TO GET TO HIM 
  3. HE WALKED IN GODS WILL FOR HIS LIFE IN SPITE OF - what you meant for evil God meant for good.

WHAT WE LEARN IS GOD is able to keep you and God mends, heals and restores from hurt, pain and betrayal and that you can move pass your pass the past by the grace of God! 

GIVE IT TO GOD, let it go and don’t allow yourself to continue in victim mode.  We will get past our past in Jesus name.
