    Moses said to Yahweh, "Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speakin...

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13'14 WEB....

Beast of Burden

  • Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly I tell you, everyone who commits sin is the bondservant of sin. A bondservant doesn't live in the house forever. A son remains forever. If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:34'36 WEB.

    As I dropped the heavy luggage in the hotel lobby, the sound echoed through the room. I had lugged it nearly a mile in the August heat, and I was exhausted. We were guests at the hotel and should have been allowed to park near the building. But the parking lot attendant had mistakenly thought we were just attending a conference and made us park in a distant dirt lot a mile away. He didn't realize we were guests of the hotel.

    Not so long ago, people would load such baggage onto a packhorse or donkey, called a beast of burden. They would force it to shoulder their load for them. The beast had no choice in the matter but had to carry whatever was put on its back.

    Similarly, the enemy will saddle you up with your past baggage and take you out for a ride if you let him. Even after you have been forgiven of it. We're all sinners, and one sin is as bad as the other. Remember this, remember that, and soon all the bad things you've ever been involved in will settle right down on you. Before long, you'll begin to question what you are even doing here. Too busy thinking, "Look at all that I have done. God could never love someone like me."

    Don't become a beast of burden, and start carrying the enemy's luggage around for him. You'll just become exhausted and bitter. Take it to the Lord in prayer, and leave your past in the past where it belongs. You're an honored guest of the Father and don't have to carry the past baggage any longer.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I am laying my past mistakes down at Your feet. This is a new day, and I won't be a beast of burden any longer. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus, and my past is now in my past. Please help me to become steadfast and to guard my thought life. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

I sometimes remember the past and find it hard to forgive myself for things I've done, alcoholism,  drug addictions and su h, I do acknowledge that Jesus has washed me of my sins, but I feel that in my mind, penance is paid with guilt and shame sometimes. I know it's not like that, but it's not easy at times. I trust in Jesus.
