Judges 11:1 “Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of an harlot and Gilead begat Jephthah.”
Everybody has a past and you must be ready to move past it for your life to make meaning. Despite the background problems of Jephthah, he ended up a champion and judge in Israel. He moved past his past and embraced a colourful future.
The circumstances of your birth might not be as you’ll have wanted or desired but that you’ve been born means heaven has an agenda for you. No human spirit comes to this planet without heaven’s release. If you were not needed you wouldn’t be born.
Comparing the life of Jephthah to that of the believer, you’ll realize that despite the fact that we are now in Christ, we came from different backgrounds.
Many have wondered away, eaten deep into the world, mingled with demons and devils and finally rescued by the unfailing magnanimous love and sacrifice of Christ. I want you to know that your past and the circumstances of your birth is not and can never be as powerful as the blood of Jesus that rescued you.
That blood washed and makes white as snow. When your background comes back to make noise and remind you about your ugly past, you have to stand up to it and condemn it. You must tell the devil that the past is past and you don’t live there anymore. Hear this:
2Corinthians 5:17 “Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come.” (GNT)
2Corinthians 5:17 “Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!” (MSG)
Friend, the brothers of Jephthah just like the devil and the men of the world might not understand this but you need to know and appropriate it. The harlotry life style has ended the day you got born again.
Don’t let you past keep your back on the ground. Everything has become new!
