Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today; for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. (Exodus 14:13)
“If you allow the memory of your past to continue, it is just as bad as if those things were still there.” – Mark Hankins
It was hard for Moses and the children of Israel to believe God would destroy their enemies because it was a radical change. They had been under bondage 400 years, but God said, “Today I will stop it, and you will never see your enemies again!”
God said that He would destroy your past. Old things have been dealt with through the power of the Gospel and the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. You have a brand-new identity in Christ! The power of the Gospel will cause the enemies that have hounded you and dominated you for years to never dominate your life again.
You have to declare who you are in Christ, and suddenly, the death and resurrection of Christ will become a reality and swallow everything that has tried to hold you in bondage!
Confession: I am a new creature in Christ. Old things are passed away. My past is forgotten. God is doing a brand-new thing in my life! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
