No Back And Forth

Past Negativity

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 4: 1-7


“Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.” (2 Kings 4: 1)

The woman who met Elisha in our Focal Scripture spoke complained to him about a debt which her late husband owed, and for which the creditor had come to take her sons into bondage. The debt was not new; it was a debt owed in the past; and it was about to cause her sons to go into bondage. Something that happened in the past showed up to mess up her present day; something from the past showed up to hurt her present day.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: nothing from your past will show up to hurt your today. No error from the past will show up to mess up your present day. No record from the past will show up to make a mess of your current efforts. No battle you faced in the past will come back to make you vulnerable in your today. The losses you suffered in the past will not mess up your today. The wrong choices of yesterday will not hurt your today.

Every voice from your yesterday that is speaking against your today, I silence that voice now. Anything from your past that is fighting your today, I terminate it by fire. Every conspiracy or enchantment that was made in the past in order to affect your today and tomorrow, I sweep it out by the fire of God. Every blackmail, gossip, bad report, falsehood, etc that was projected to bring you down, I command it to go down.

Today, I decree, nothing from the past will upstage your future. Nothing from your yesterday will open the door of destruction to you. No negative story from your yesterday will shut the doors of advancement as you show up. Nothing from your yesterday will get in the way of your greatness. Nothing from your yesterday will chase away the helpers you desire. Nothing negative from your yesterday will overshadow your today.

I silence every negative voice from your yesterday; and I decree, nothing from the past will mess up the present and the future.


Nothing from the past will hurt my present and future, in Jesus’ name!
