“And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:” Exodus 14:15 (KJV)
Looking back is a mark of defeat. When you look up God himself will show you his salvation. When you look ahead of you, you will move towards your goal and you will realise your destiny. God told Abraham, Look up from where you are. Do not bother about the situation you are in. Look northward, southward, eastward, westward. As far as your eyes can see will I give to you. There is so much in the land that you are looking at. Lot may have taken what looks better but let me tell you there is so much underground.
Do you know that the same land that Abraham took is the present Saudi Arabia today with all the wealth therein? As at that time there was no visible oil wells there. But God who gave it saw beyond the sand he knew there were wells there. You are loaded. Go forward! Stop looking behind. There is nothing behind. Move ahead. Move on. They shut the door against you, go forward. Someone disappointed you, go forward. I have not seen a person who is involved in a race looking back and running at the same time who will get there first. Keep running, that’s what God said.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. (Psalms 1:1-3). You see when you became a child of God you were automatically born into royalty there are things that are automatically yours by virtue of the seed you carry. They are yours.
God is going to surprise the world. The last time I read my bible it says unto principalities and powers will be made known by the church the manifold wisdom of God (Ephesians 3:10). God is going to demonstrate his wisdom through the church. That is why the world is getting darker. That is why they are running ahead and we seem to be behind. Get ready. Time is going to be compressed and you will overtake them. A little that you will do would produce plenty, just a little effort. You will break-forth to the left, break-forth to the right; break-forth to the front and expand in every area.
