Joyce Meyer: ‘God Promises To Heal And Restore You From Your Past’
One of the most incredible things about being a Christians is knowing that God forgives you of your past. No matter what you have done, if you turn to Jesus Christ with a repentant heart, he will forgive and restore you – that is His promise. Preacher and author Joyce Meyer has expanded on this in a recent video.
“God is in the business of healing and restoration. Your entire life does not have to be ruined because someone hurt you,” declares Joyce.
“Even if you did some terrible things. Maybe you hurt somebody, maybe you’re in prostitution, maybe you had several abortions and now you wish you hadn’t done that.”
Regret is pointless, says Joyce. If you have asked for forgiveness, you know you are accepted by God’s grace.
“Regret is pretty much useless. We can be sorry for the things that we’ve done but then we need to receive forgiveness and go on. Living with regret will suck the life out of you,” she argues.
“If you’ve done wrong things in the past and you’re still holding it against yourself it’s time for you to say “I am gonna shake that off.”
“When I think about some of the things that were done to me as a child, to be honest at this point, I feel like I’m thinking about somebody I used to know a long, long time ago.”
“Now sometimes it will come back to my mind, but you have to make decisions, you can’t just go by what you feel all the time.”
“God promises to heal and restore.”
