Which Way?

Which way are we going – forward or backward?

Some of us are stuck in the past and we’re going backwards.

Others of us don’t want to change and, as the world changes around us, we are automatically going backwards.

Many of us would like to be going forward but we’re often not sure what that means.  What does going forward look like for me?  For you?  How do we make that happen?

Jeremiah tells us in his 7th chapter that obeying God is moving forward.July 28 2016 which way

When we stop focusing on ourselves and ignore our stubborn inclinations of rebellion to God, we can start moving forward.

Paying attention to God and his truth + applying his truth to our lives + letting God transform us = moving forward.

When we stay in line with God, we can’t go backwards.  God changes us.  He renews our minds.  He continues to redeem more and more of our thoughts and our actions as we walk closely with him.

When we obey God, we are moving forward.

Into his light.

Into his love.

Thank you, Abba Father. 

One thought on “Which Way?

  1. D.C. Harris

    James 4:8 comes to mind. In order to draw near to God I must face fears of the past and move beyond deceptive barriers and confront true challenges by His power to shatter darkness as He leads the way to shalom.
