MEMORY VERSE: “We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:” – Numbers 11:5 (KJV)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Numbers 11:4-7 (KJV) (Scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 21 April 2024 HYMN)

4 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

6 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

7 And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium.

INTRODUCTION: After the children of Israel left Egypt, it is unfortunate that “Egypt” did not leave them. Despite the miracles of deliverance and divine provisions, they still longed for the cucumbers and garlic they ate as slaves because “yesterday” was vivid in their memories. The same thing applies to some of us who refuse to let go of our past! Whatever happened in the past must be history and we must embrace today and forge ahead to take a brighter tomorrow.




Below are some of the ways to deal with past events or occurrences:

  1. Be intentional to deal with any ugly past because some bad memories always want to fill our thoughts (Philippians 4:8).
  2. Learn from the mistakes so as to avoid the repetition of any ugly or undesirable past (John 8:10-11).
  3. Forgive yourself and others for whatever happened in the past (Genesis 45:5). Remove the “veil of offense” and never allow it to degenerate into an obstacle (Ephesians 4:31; Hebrews 12:15).
  4. Accelerate your forward movement (Exodus 14:15) by thinking and taking the next step into a brighter tomorrow.
  5. Forget ‘yesterday’ because it is gone! Stop holding on to the past or referring to it incessantly as if you can bring back the hand of the clock. (Philippians 3:13).
  6. Free your mind because a negative past enslaves you. (Galatians 5:1).
  7. Cry to God to take any unwanted memory away. Remember that vengeance is of the Lord: leave the matter to Him (Romans 12:19).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention any past event that is still hurting them.


Believers must walk with the assurance that tomorrow will be better (Job 14:7-9; 2 Corinthians 5:17). Hope is a prerequisite needed to forget the past and look forward to the future (Job 11:18; Romans 5:5). Having a focus will sustain a believer to keep moving (Philippians 3:13). Give yourself to the study of God’s word (Psalm 119:16) and know that He is your help (Psalm 46:1); this gives uncommon happiness and joy (Psalm 146:5). Carve the future by channelling all your energy to positive endeavours in order to fulfil your purpose in life (Proverbs 16:9). No matter what, win your future (Proverbs 23:18).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should mention where they hope to see themselves in the next five (5) years.

CONCLUSION: Remembering the irreparable past generates sorrow, therefore set your mind on a better tomorrow.


  1. Mention two ways believers can deal with past occurrences.
  2. How should believers handle the future?

    I rejoice to see Thee,
    Will thou pass over me today?
    Without my being blest?
