The Master's Grip: In His Grip

Reclaiming the past...
Wednesday, February 08, 2006

The below is from my friend, Grant Conley, I appreciated what he had to say and wanted to share it with you all!



Everyone experiences failure right? But what about failures that leave us inhibited. Failures that are still active in our minds, painful reminders of what we have done that keep us from moving on. Sometimes they can even haunt us; causing us to lay awake at night thinking about them, surfacing a wide range of negative emotions (anger, regret, lust, etc.)

It is because of these past failures and mistakes, whether little or small, that our shortcomings have left us scarred, wounded, and hurting. They have taken a toll on our manhood and our spirituality. With this in mind, we know that the core of our identity has been shaken and abused.

Each failure sends us a particular message, and it is these messages that contain information which keep us from realizing our potential in our personal walk with God, ministry, goals, dreams, and relationships – including our relationship with self. If these messages then are crippling our relationships and potential, what should we do about them? How do we even know if we even believe these messages?

It is time to uncover the lies that are keeping us bound. It is time to acknowledge the work of the enemy and destroy it. It is time to acknowledge the truth of the past, and accept the truth of the “now” and of the future to come. It is time to accept who God has determined us to be. It is time to move forward.



In His Grip,

James
