18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Many christians come to a time in their walk where things get hard. They start remembering when they were in sin. They think that they had it so well. They had money, even though it was earned through bad means. They had friends, even though those friends wanted nothing but the sin of the world. They had all of these things, but they did not have Jesus. Stop looking back at the things you had in sin. Instead, start looking at what God can do for you. Start looking at how he can make a way. He will use your hard times to make your faith stronger. He will turn your struggle into a blessing. Forget about the past of sin and instead look toward the future of blessings.
