I don't know about you, but I've always been interested in time travel. I love historical fiction. I love movies that involve time travel. That's one of the reasons I love reading the gospels and the stories in the Old Testament. As you read them, you can imagine and put yourself in the story back at that time.
You can use your imagination and put yourself back in any time in history. Or you can imagine a future and put yourself in that future. You and I do this all the time, though most of it is subconsciously.
There's a secret that you have access to, that can propel you forward toward faith or backward back into regret or fear. It's actually not much of a secret. You've access to it your whole life. It's just that it's been hidden from you, in that you haven't known how to use it for its full impact.
That secret is the power of decision. You use this power every day. Yet, I bet you didn't know you could use that power for time travel. Let me explain.
Everyday you make decisions and agreements. You began making decisions and agreements at a young age, usually before the age 7. Yet. those decisions and agreements are made your entire life.
For example, you may have been told something when you were younger. You have tried to fix something when you were young. Instead of being allowed to complete your project, someone told you "let me help you with that". You could make the decision to agree that you need help. Agreement you would then make is "I don't know how to do anything or figure it out without help".
Then later in life, when you struggle with accomplishing a task, what is it you could do? You could once again, agree with the statement "I don't know how to do anything or figure it out without help". So, what you've done is to time travel into the past. What has happened is you've taken that think you were told, that agreement you made and brought it into the present. So, you've taken a part of your past and brought it into the present.
Often those agreements from the past can lead you into fear and unbelief. For example, making the decision to agree with the belief you've established that "I can't learn anything new without help", can enable you to establish the negative belief that "I can't do anything right". As a result, you'll be afraid to try new things.
Back To The Future
In this scripture, God is giving a declaration that He tells us things before they happen. You see this coming to pass in the Old Testatment, through the prophets. In 1 Corinthians, chapter 12, one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the church, is the gift of prophecy. Through this prophetic gift, God often tells things of the future to someone.
So, what's happening when God tells you something from the future? He's bringing to future for you into your present.
I addressed the power of decision earlier. You have a decision. You can make the decision to focus on those agreements you've made in the past, which led to negative or disempowering beliefs.
Or you can focus on those things above and His blessings in scripture and allow God to bring your victorious future into your present. Either the past or the future will be brought into your present. Which will you make the decision to allow?
