Unleashing Hope  \\  May 16, 2014

One of our favorite story tellers, Chris Brown, is our HQ Devo guest today! He encourages us that no matter what’s happened in our past, God can redeem it, & actually use it for good. Our past can either be Satan’s greatest weapon against us, or God’s most powerful tool to refine us. So after we’ve asked God to FORGIVE us from our past, to truly move forward and refocus on the future, we must then invite God to FREE us from the regret, the guilt, the anger, the shame, the bitterness, the emotional cement of our past. It doesn’t have to hold us prisoner anymore. We can be forgiven AND freed from our past today!
