Although it is true that you cannot go back and change the past, there is no reason to focus on your past failures. Instead, strive to not miss the opportunities before you now. This is the way to live a life without regrets. I have washed your sins in the blood of My Son, so what good does it do to focus on your past? This is where many in My church are paralyzed. Not only are they stuck in the past, but they are trying to do penance for their sins. It is a religious spirit that keeps so many bound; for when I said the blood of Jesus was enough to set you free, I meant it. My Son declared “It is finished”, therefore, walk in freedom.
It is possible to live a life of no regrets. Every time you look back at your past, you can see the Cross. That is how I see you. It is time to get a new picture of your life. It is a life of freedom and adventure as long as you remain and abide in Christ. Just as I have said in My Word, the just shall live by faith. Stop striving and rest; abide in the everlasting truth of My Word.
Galatians 3:10-14 Living Bible (TLB)
10 Yes, and those who depend on the Jewish laws to save them are under God’s curse, for the Scriptures point out very clearly, “Cursed is everyone who at any time breaks a single one of these laws that are written in God’s Book of the Law.” 11 Consequently, it is clear that no one can ever win God’s favor by trying to keep the Jewish laws because God has said that the only way we can be right in his sight is by faith. As the prophet Habakkuk says it, “The man who finds life will find it through trusting God.” 12 How different from this way of faith is the way of law, which says that a man is saved by obeying every law of God, without one slip. 13 But Christ has bought us out from under the doom of that impossible system by taking the curse for our wrongdoing upon himself. For it is written in the Scripture, “Anyone who is hanged on a tree is cursed” (as Jesus was hung upon a wooden cross).
14 Now God can bless the Gentiles, too, with this same blessing he promised to Abraham; and all of us as Christians can have the promised Holy Spirit through this faith.
Luke 13:24 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Strive to enter through the narrow door [force aside unbelief and the attractions of sin]; for many, I tell you, will try to enter [by their own works] and will not be able.
