Eight Ways to Think About Your Past

In the counseling world, there is a lot made of a person’s past. Thinking about your past narrative can be a good thing. Your history is important because God was in your past. (cf. Jeremiah 1:5; Ephesians 1:3–11).

1 — Your Past Is Significant

To put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires. — Ephesians 4:22 (ESV)

2 — You Are Not a Victim

Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.

They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. But that is not the way you learned Christ! — Ephesians 4:17–20 (ESV)

3 — Your Past Affects Your Present

4 — You’ve Reconstructed Your Past

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. — 2 Corinthians 10:3–6 (ESV)

5 — The Lord Was In Your Past

6 — The World Distorts Your Past

7 — You May Have Distorted Your Past

8 — Rewrite Your Future
