OUR MEMORY BANK

Inside our brain is a compartment that is known as the Memory Bank. It is here that we deposit and withdraw things of the past that have been both positive and negative. Some of the deposits are fond memories of joyous events that continue to bring smiles upon our faces, while memories of the negative past experiences tend to not only impede our motivational actions, but to stifle our joy. It should be no surprise to realize that our Memory Bank has been hacked into. Under careful examination, we see a display of past mistakes that have hindered our spiritual growth. What we thought God had forgiven and forgotten is displayed as if we had committed it yesterday. Satan wants us to operate with full knowledge of our past sins and errors. He wants us to operate with a rear view mirror which causes the Believer to never lose sight of the past. Every time we go to our memory bank, we are amazed at the illegal deposits that have been made to our account. Things that were thrown as far as the east is from the west and into the deepest part of the sea are now sitting upon the beaches of our mind and disrupting the benefits of the Kingdom of God. The Apostle Paul had a full Memory Bank of his past endeavors. The difference was that he made sure the positives out weighed the negatives. When he did recall the past challenges, he always dwelt on the victories that he achieved through Christ. Sure, we all have past garbage, but instead of opening the can and smelling our mistakes, let us see the victories that have been secured through our faith. If God has forgiven and forgotten our confessed sins, why do we want to go back and withdraw illegal deposits from our Memory Banks?

Paul put it very simply when he said to the Philippians, “…this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before...” (Philippians 3:13) He explained to his readers that he was going to “press toward” the direction God was calling him (v.14) and urged his followers to do the same thing. (v.15)

Let us fill our present days with the things of the Kingdom, knowing that the deposits in our Memory Bank will incur interest rates that will benefit not only ourselves, but also those with whom we come into contact. Maybe it is time to change our passwords so Satan can’t hack into our account anymore. Let us learn to use Philippians 2:5 as our access code; “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” The next time Satan tries to hack into our Memory Bank, he will hear “ACCESS DENIED.”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
