How To Put The Past Behind You

As we approach the end of 2014, I want to encourage you to look past your failures. Believe that your future will be greater than your past. In 2015, you will see unprecedented success and favor. You will breakthrough in all areas of your life. These things however, will not happen if you do not have the courage to leave your past behind. Anyone who drives and continually looks in his/her rear view mirror will not go very far. Such a person puts themselves and others at the risk of a
crash because their focus is behind instead of before them.

I found this video by Bishop T.D. Jakes that speaks about putting things behind you so you can have all the good things that are in store for you.


In order to change your life, you have to change your focus. You have to change the things you are looking at and believing for. You must believe that all things are working together for you to get you to an expected victorious end. If you choose to stay focused on the things that are negative in your life, then by your own choice you are agreeing with forces that are working against you. You cast the deciding vote. When you believe the lies of the enemy, this opens many doors to destruction in your life and in the lives of the people that you care about. I please with you to guard your thought life. Close to the gates to thoughts that do not empower you. These thoughts come into your life to drain you and distract from your purpose driven life. You’ve got to talk to yourself sometimes and say “Shut Up Self!”

Do not lose hope. There is definitely light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what you’re going through, keep the faith because your faith will help you go to new levels of victory and soon you will rise to be a champion, capable of helping others become champions. You will live that live of victory that you were destined to live.

Bishop Jakes puts it this way: “It’s not what they say about you that matters, it is what you say about you that threatens your destiny. You will never be defeated by what they say about you, you will be defeated by what you say about you.”

It’s important to watch what you are speaking into existence. Are you speaking words that create or words that destroy? Reflect on that for a minute. Living in the past is very bad. Learn to accept that you have quite a bright future. Just be sure to remember those two things in the right order.

Enjoy the video below as the Bishop exposes some things you can do today to ensure a bright future down the road.
