God cannot prepare you for the new things which He has for you, unless you release the old from your life. You have to release old mindsets, thoughts, ways, people, connections.
All of these will hinder your progress to move forward. Don’t be afraid to step out on faith and move with God. You cannot put new wine into old wine skins. You cannot receive the new by holding on to the old “part” of your life.
Trust God and allow Him to lead you forward into the newness of life that He has for you.
Don’t pressure yourself any longer, just forget about the past mistakes and past failures because there is nothing you can do to change the past. God knows the path and the plans that He has set for you, so just let go, and let God take control!
“and no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins” Mark 2:22.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland” Isaiah 43:19.
“No, dear brothers and sisters, i have not achieved it, but i focus on this one thing: forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead” Philippians 3:13.
