I heard somebody say once; "Don't let your heredity stop your destiny." Don't let the way people treated you in your past, or what they did or didn't give you keep you from looking forward and becoming all that God has created you to be. The people who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn't have to be your future. You can be the one to break that negative cycle. Your parents may have had anger issues, but you don't have to keep letting that curse be passed from generation to generation. You can be the one to stand up and say, "No more. This is a new day! I may not have had the best past, but I'm not going to have a bad future. I know that God put a blessing on me and I'm not going to let my past mess up my destiny."
Today, know that God is for you. When you choose to put Him first place in your life, then nothing can stop you! Seek Him with a humble heart and break free from the bondages of the past! Know that with God all things are possible and that He is working on your behalf, paving the way to your future. Don’t focus on the things of the past but keep your eyes focused on what Jesus has for you. Remember it’s called a fight for a reason. However we fight from victory not for victory. Keep fighting!
