Beware Of ‘I-Knew-You-When’ People!

Beware Of ‘I-Knew-You-When’ People!

‘He did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.’ Matthew 13:58 NIV (2011 Edition)
ISN’T IT interesting how Jesus could work miracles everywhere except His own home town? The problem wasn’t the location; it was the attitude of the people. The Bible says: ‘Coming to his home town, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son?”…And they took offence at him. But Jesus said to them, “Only in his home town and in his own house is a prophet without honour” ’ (vv. 54-57 NIVUK 1984 Edition). So how did Jesus respond? He left them and moved on! Faith refuses to stay stuck in the past. Beware of ‘I-knew-you-when’ people. When you let then define your world, they always make it smaller. They’ll try to define you on the basis of who you were, not who you’ve become – and certainly not who you may someday be. They’ll want you to linger with them in memory lane, and rob you of the momentum you need to soar. They’ll not permit you to embrace the future. Don’t let them. God wants to do great things in your life, but you need to move beyond the ‘good old days’. The past is past; it can’t be rewritten, it can only be replayed over and over. It’s time to write the rest of your story.The future lies before you like an uninhabited land waiting for the pioneers of destiny to explore it. So forge ahead!
