Are there times when you wished you could go back in time and erase all the regrets, missed opportunities, and mistakes you have made in the past? I know I go through this in my head all the time. But the good news is, you don’t have to live with the burdens of your pasts and let it hold you down. God’s grace, mercy, and love is there for you to set you free from all the chains of your bad pasts. He died on the cross to cleanse us from any sin that exists in our life, and to give us the freedom to live in peace with him. No sin is greater than God’s grace. Now that we know God’s grace exists, how do we receive it and live a life truly for him? How do we let go of our past and allow God to break our chains? The answer is: Expose your darkness into God’s light of glory and truth.
Ephesians 5:13-14 says,”But everything exposed by the light becomes visible-and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. That is why it is said: “Wake up sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” The only way to let go of the darkness in your life, whether it is from the present or past, is to expose it into bright light; into God’s truth. Allow God’s light to shine upon every part of your life. When you expose your sin to God and live in truth, he will take away your sin and turn it into light. There is no darkness that is too dark for God’s light to shine over. God is the only solution to turning the darkness in your life apart. Don’t be afraid to expose your sins because any bad thing in your life can turn to good through God. There is no sin that is too much for God to take care of. God’s light and glory is for you so use it!
It may be hard to exposure your bad mistakes and sins, but if you truly love God you will put him first above what you flesh desires. I struggled in the past of holding a sin in my life and making the mistake of not exposing it. But after confessing my sins, I received a peace and freedom that can come from no other. John 8:32 says, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”That truth is God’s word, and if you know God’s word, it will set you free from all bondages of sin. Follow and live according to God’s word and his holy spirit will give you the strength to release your sins and set you free. Satan is a deceiver, be careful and do not listen to his lies. Satan is good at putting worries in our mind and he certainly does not want you to exposure your sins to God. He wants you to stay broken with chains and away from the truth. But put Gods truth above the lies that satan tells you. Trust God and his truth because only God’s truth can set you free.
Any darkness can turn into light through Jesus Christ. There is no knot that is too complicated for God to untangle and fix. No matter how bad your situation is, God’s truth and light will slowly untangle your mess into something beautiful. Do not be afraid because one thing will always remain, and that is God’s love for you. Don’t let the temporary pleasures of this world fool you. For the things of God are eternal. Focus on God and don’t wait another second to confess your sins to God. Change your life, never go back, and walk in his truth. So remember, allow God’s light to shine onto your life.
