A reminder for today
From now on, don't let anyone trouble me with these things. For I bear on my body the scars that show I belong to Jesus. (Galatians 6:17)
We all carry scars. There are real scars from injuries and then there is life scars. These are the ones we can’t see but they are there. They are in our hearts and in our minds. Some are healing and some are just to deep to go away. Scars can be from bad experiences we had or from hurt that we went through. Some of our scars are visible from what we say and do, but some of our scars we hide because we are either embarrassed of them or we are afraid they will make people dislike us.
The fact is that when you give your life to Jesus, He takes all those scars on Him to the cross and He destroys them. He takes us and wipes our past clean. This means that all those scars are gone and they should have no effect on who we are. To keep them alive is to place yourself in bondage. This is something that we open to allow the enemy to have a hold on our lives and it could make you fall again.
The only scars you should have is the the scars that shows the world that you belong to Jesus. These are battle scars from a life that follows His voice and lives by His Word. These are also that scars that the enemy fears, for they makes us stronger in Jesus.
There is nothing from you past that should hold you back, my friend. You are amazing and you are strong. So today stand up and show your scars, because the ones in your past is healed, but the ones that connect you with Jesus is well worth showing.
Lord, take our past and clear it from our minds so that we can battle on for you each day. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
