The Lord is desiring all to move beyond the past and see things in a different light.  There are many kinds of abuse from people, circumstances and even bad dreams.  When circumstances gets close to an old wound caused from abuse, it is natural to respond in irrational ways, because old abusive patterns repeated themselves until well grooved.  The wounded person expects one way of looking at things, and is unable to see there may be a total different heart to the matter, merely because the pattern is so well grooved, they cant see past the rut. 


If you find yourself misunderstanding a person’s words, circumstances or dreams, seek understanding before responding in your old rut.  You may find yourself quite surprised that you totally missed the point, simply because an old wound has shaped you to respond one way. 


There is one very simple key that either sets the old tracks to remain, or jumps the old rutted grooves into a new place:  Expectation.  Your mind, emotions, and patterns are set, because you EXPECT and anticipate what is coming to you is the same as yesterday.  Or you can EXPECT that what is coming to you may actually be addressing an old issue in a brand new light in order to give you a creative new way of overcoming an old wound.  EXPECT differently.


Change is inevitable, except in a set mind.  But God is greater.


2 Cor 10:4-5 NKJV

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ...


Isa 30:18 AMP

And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! [John 14:3,27; 2 Cor 12:9; Heb 12:2; 1 John 3:16; Rev 3:5.] 




Carefully assessing, then rearranging.

Healing past patterns with new ways of thinking.

Anticipating the evolution of something new.

Never accepting the mundane.

Gaining momentum to move past the past.

Expecting good fruit from different choices.


Only God does not change, therefore it is inevitable that we must.


James 1:17  AMP

Every good gift and every perfect ( free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].


Heb 13:8 NKJV

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
