How to Move Forward from the Mistakes of Your Past

   Bookmark and Share

Do you feel like we must be on the verge of a breakthrough?

This is because strategies from the Lord are being released from Heaven right now concerning your destiny!

God is revealing the purposes and plans He has had for you since before you were born. But many of us have gotten caught up in the mistakes of our past, and it is keeping us from fully understanding our personal Book of Life.

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:16 NIV

What is in your Book of Life?

Your Book of Life has your higher calling laid out so you can follow its instructions and succeed. This isn’t a scary book that has all the bad stuff written down that may have happened in your life. This book tells the story of the life God has uniquely appointed for you.

Good and not bad

Your Book of Life contains the good deeds and great things you’re called to do—but it does not record your past sins or missteps!

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 NIV

When you ask the Lord to forgive you for the past, He blots those records out of your book. This means your past mistakes do not determine the outcome of your future. When you ask God for forgiveness, your sins are gone, done, over, wiped out!

It’s time to let go of the baggage of the past so you can fully embrace what’s coming! Ask God’s forgiveness and release the pain of the past so you can resist the temptation to pull back from advancing into your future.

Your calling being revealed

This year the Lord is going to speak to you about your calling and purpose. There’s no need to be afraid of missing God since the details in your Book of Life have been recorded since before you were born!

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart …” Jeremiah 1:5 NIV

The plans God has for you are good!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

So, get your hopes up! This is a time when God is doing something new. Get ready to receive!

    Hi Doug tell me what you really know or see in the spirit about me cause this email is touching my spirit that I been feeling very deeply these past 9 years, this message is like conformation to my vision of what I see myself and that’s a King god been putting in my heart to help the poor and needy when he give me my dream and all my heart desires like he promise me.. Doug I had 2 dreams like Joseph and both dream was different like Joseph but they both together interprets the same meaning well first dream my mom was in it I was at her house in her bed room telling her that I did it she said did what D, I said hit the lottery had the ticket in my hand showing her the numbers she said how much you win ,I said I don’t know but I do know after tax I’ll bring home over a $100 + million , the second dream which 7 years later my father was in this one and he was deceased 12 years ago well we was in the lottery headquarters redeeming the winning ticket and my dad was behind the counter in a blurry like image but I could see his face and he gave me a huge smile as if proud and happy smile he didn’t say nothing but he went to the copy machine to bring the papers for me to sign then he slowly faded away then the lady behind the desk says go ahead Mr Johnson sign I signed the she says congratulations you are the biggest winner ever the last biggest jackpot was $1.6 Billion so I thinking when I win it will be I’m seeing 2.5 Billion, that being said god set me down like he did David, I’ve been like in isolation for 9 years I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting and meditating on god seeking Jesus face and he have shown me pretty much what he want me to do and help the poor and needy all over the world I know how to do that cause I know my plans as investing is the worlds greatest change in health,wealth and growth but I don’t know all the details to take the lead of being the leader the King god chose and want me to be and do in his timing

      Hello Doug. I tried to register for the course Book Of Life, but was unable to verify my password, or the other information which was required. My Master Card number has changed as I have a new card and for your course I paid by Visa. However after I was given an access code by you, the amount charged to my credit card was $74.00 which indicates being charge too much. It should be $37.00. Please phone me to rectify this so I am able to take this course.
