The past, living there requires a tremendous cost. There are the "What ifs?" that plague our minds. The "wishing I'd done this and not that." Satan loves for us to go there. He likes it when we camp out there, set up shop there, build a residence there. It's one of the simplest tools in his toolbox to distract us from the good in the present.
There's an old song that reads:
Please, Mr., please, don't play B-17, It was our song, it was his song, but it's over.
If you are living in the past, with past regrets haunting you today, give them over to the Almighty God who loves you and forgives you and wants only the best for you. He has a plan to use those experiences for your good and His glory. It's a chapter in your story, not the whole book!
What Scripture verses do you go to when the past creeps up on you?
