The Past Will Work

28th April 2019

Scripture Reading: Esther 6: 1-14


“On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.” (Esther 6: 1)

It is instructive to observe that the good work which was written in the book of the king’s chronicles and which distinguished Mordecai was a good work he did in the past. He did something good in time past, and one night, the good he did was remembered and became a platform for his elevation to royalty. Something from his past worked for his good; something that should have been long forgotten worked for his good.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: something from your past will work for your good. The good works you did in time past will cause you to be divinely announced and celebrated; the good works you did for people who may not have appreciated you will come back to pay you handsomely; the good work you did without demanding to be paid will come back and speak for you; the good you did in the past will soon pay off.

Get set: in this season, elements of your past will work for you; people you met in time past will work for you; ideas you suggested in time past will come back to work in your favour; proposals you sent in the past will be called up in your favour; conversations you held in the past will suddenly become a platform for your elevation; things you may have forgotten that happened in the past will be called up, and you will be remembered for good.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: no negativity from your past will come back to haunt or hinder your future. Nothing that you did wrong in the past will come against you to cause roadblocks for the future that is yet to come; if there be elements of the past that will not favour you, I block them by the blood of Jesus. Everything in your past that will work against your future, today, I decree, it will not stand and it will not be admitted against you.

Get set: the past will work for you; the good deeds of yesterday will pay off soon. The elements of the past will work in your favour.


Elements of my past will work for me, in Jesus’ name!
