We tend to hold on to the old mindsets from our past whether it is physical or emotional. Our past drains us and hinders us from moving forward in life. We stay in a place where we still believe we have the same issues because of our insecurities. Our insecurities may be fear, anxiety, worry, or even disbelief. The truth is, we are not crippled anymore. We are whole in Christ.
Recently, I have had surgery to help keep me well from having sinus infections. The doctor says the surgery was a success, and I am well. But, I am still living a life of fear. After being sick for six years, this mentality is all I know. My immune was low, and I could not be around people who just had the sniffles or I would get sick. I am living in disbelief that I have my life back. Even though I heard the doctor say the words, “I am well,” it almost seems to be a dream, not reality. I am living in an old mindset when God says, “I am healed.” Through Christ I have to believe I am whole again! I am not crippled by a disease anymore. I have to believe I am healed!
What old mentality are you believing today? Are believing that nothing has changed when God has healed you? What lie is satan reminding you of every day that keeps you in the past rather than the present?
I challenge you this week to evaluate your life and see where you are still living in the past. What insecurities get in the way for you to live whole in Christ? What is holding you back from seeing the truth in your life?
Do not let old mindsets get in the way of living in the present! You are no longer crippled from the past. You are whole in Christ! You are complete in Him! Let 2016 be a year of celebration and victories!
