We can lay the axe to the root (Matthew 3:10) of any hurt by speaking, meditating, and reading the word of God concerning any situation . The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12) and it cuts through any situation. We have the authority that when that hurt comes up, we cast it down with the word of God until it loses its power.
If we don’t cast it down, it can pass on to other people. It is like certain things in our family that are negative and have been passed down. We can choose to break the negative cycle in our family by casting down past and present hurts.
Deuteronomy 7:9 says Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
God is faithful to keeping His word for those who loves him. We love God according to John 24:15 when we obey his commandments.
Be like Paul. Instead of passing down negative things from the past in Philippians 3:13-1413 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Glory to God! Not dwelling on the hurts and moving forward is the high life. The low life is dwelling on them.
Instead of passing it, start casting it!
Prayer: Lord thank for your compassion never fails. I truly forgive by casting down every hurt and submitting it to God. I forget those things which are behind and move forward. I thank you God, you cause me to forget all my sorrow. In Jesus name! Amen,
