Do you have any regrets, if so you will never enjoy the fullness of what I have in store for you. My Father cannot understand why you regret anything!
As He examines your past, He sees My work in your life and wonders why you regret anything. The only thing it can be is that you have been listening to the enemy about your old life, before you became a new creature, 2 Corinthians 5:17. There is nothing in your past that has not been erased by your Godly sorrow and true repentance. The moment that transpired My blood cleansed and erased your entire past life, and anything you would have regretted. “As far as the east is from the west, that’s how far I have removed your transgressions from you,” Psalm 103:12.
You say you regret not coming to Me sooner, and that’s noble, but it was not possible, because you were destined to come to Me when you did. Not a day later or a day sooner. It’s clear to Me that you have been listening to the father of lies again! He loves to bring up the old man that was buried, he knows he can no longer accuse you in front of heavens gate, because We know it no longer exists.
All of heaven heard My Father say, “I will be merciful to your unrighteousness, and your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more,” Hebrews 8:12.
If you regret anything in your past, then you are out of alignment with My Father, because He regrets nothing in your life except this present ugly regret, that keeps haunting you. If you have experienced Godly sorrow, then Godly sorrow brings repentance to a complete salvation, a complete change of mind, not to be repented of again: but the sorrow of the world works death by filling your mind with regrets,” 2 Corinthians 7:10.
Once you are a new creature heaven has no record of your past, it’s all in your mind. Even if you have became a new creature while sitting in jail, you are there due to a crime you have committed, because it is remembered on earth, but from heaven’s perspective, you are their to minister to others and the record of the crime does not exist.
This is why many believers are freer in prison than believers on the outside in the prison of regrets. The question is, do you believe you are a new creature or not? If you have regret you do not truly believe your old life has been erased.
Bottom line: The only way you will fulfill your purpose on earth is by “forgetting what lies behind like My Father has, and strain forward to what lies ahead! 14 From today on I want you to press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize, by fulfilling your purpose, to which My Father, because you are in Me now, is calling you to move up to,” Philippians 3:13-14 AMP.
