DON’T LOOK BACK
Wednesday, 20 May 2015
“But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”. Hebrews 10:39 (KJV)
We are not of them that look back unto perdition. Paul says we are of them that believe to the saving of the soul. We don’t look back. In Luke 9:62, the scripture says “. . . No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God”.
You are not fit for the kingdom of God if you begin to look back. There are terrors and problems out there but don’t look back. There are challenges out there to overwhelm you but don’t look back. It is time to move forward. Paul says we have not yet attained nor made perfect but this one thing we do, forgetting the things that are behind, we reach forth for the things that are before we press for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14). These are days of Gods power. Don’t go back, move forward.
Jesus, for the joy that was set before him, endured the pains of the cross (Hebrews 12:2). He endured the cross and the opposition of sinners. It was painful but he endured it because of the joy that was set ahead of him. There is joy ahead of every cross road. All you need do is to keep going. The joy shall be made manifest. Weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning (Psalms 30:5).
We have a cloud of witnesses that are waiting for us at the banisters of heaven. No wonder in his departure commission, He said “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Keep on moving forward. Don’t stop! No matter where you are, no matter the challenge facing you, don’t look back. I declare unto you today that you will not be defeated neither will you be overwhelmed. Your dreams and expectations shall materialise. You will realise your goal and arrive at your destiny. You will not go under in Jesus name.
