I got a bad habit of looking back at the past and talking about what the old Brinda did/would do, instead of talking about God has healed me from and brought me through and giving Him all the Glory. There is no glory for me in the past. Even in the future, the Glory belongs to God, I am just here as a vessel to do His will and complete my purpose.
When I discover/ finally acknowledge something not right about me I go and Goggle, I found today’s revelation in Luke 9:57-62.
As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
In this scripture, the word “fit” means suitable. That really hurt me to think that in those moments I was not usable for God’s purpose. But its was true. So that’s a wrap, no more looking back glorifying the past.
Digging a little deeper – In my mind, I took my blessings/breakthroughs/victories and made it about me. And this is the same thing Lucifer (Satan) did before he was kicked out of heaven – began to believe in his own mind that God’s Glory was all about him. Please forgive me Lord.
One last revelation – God’s vision and purpose for my life is in front of me, not behind me.
Less of me Lord and MORE of you.
