Break Free from Your Past
“When God was setting up judges for them, he would be right there with the judge: He would save them from their enemies’ oppression as long as the judge was alive, for God was moved to compassion when he heard their groaning because of those who afflicted and beat them. But when the judge died, the people went right back to their old ways—but even worse than their parents!—running after other gods, serving and worshiping them. Stubborn as mules, they didn’t drop a single evil practice.” (Judges 2:18-19)
Breaking free from our past requires turning our back on our corrupt behavior. Let us not make the mistake of blaming others for the things that are happening in our lives. When we start to take full responsibility of our actions, we can achieve and make good decisions. Life that involves blaming others will never make us realize that we are capable of changing our situation.
We must be responsible and realize the wrong actions and decisions that always make us end up in the same situation. We must learn to evaluate our decisions. Once we are aware of our mistakes, we must do something about them. We must not see ourselves as victims of the situation. We have to see ourselves as someone who has the power to change the situation.
