“Nothing In Your Past Can Hold You There” 

The people of Israel had been in slavery/bondage for many years. Through Moses, the Lord told the people of Israel; “If you want out, follow these instructions”.  
(Note to anyone that needs deliverance from sin, addictions, bondage: if you want out, follow God’s instructions … He has a way out for you.)
Those who obeyed got out!  It was deliverance time! They were on their way to the Promised Land!  Then the Pharaoh of Egypt said, “I want those people brought back.”  (Exodus 14) Pharaoh’s army caught up with the delivered ones just as they came to the Red Sea…. not good.  It appeared as if their past had caught up with them.
Moses said to the people, “fear not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord… the Egyptians who you have seen today… you will see them again no more forever.  The Lord will fight for you.”  And that is exactly what happened. (Read Exodus 14:16-31)
Believer, child of faith; nothing in your past can hold you there!  The Lord’s deliverance is a complete and thorough deliverance!  You’re on your journey and the Lord says, “don’t fear… don’t allow your past breed doubt concerning your future.”  The same Lord that delivered you will lead, guide, keep, and preserve you.
No past sin, failure, abuse, mistreatment, habit, lifestyle, false doctrine, nothing, can hold you there.  “There is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”  (Romans 8:1).
You, believer, are free from your past.
