"In my rear view"


It's time for you to become forward focused. Now is not the time for you to be looking back at things of the old. Many of you are driving in the car of your destiny, but are looking through your rear view. Maybe there are some pleasant experiences you had in your past, but as Jonathan says, "your rear view, can't compare to, what God will do in your life."

The first generation of Israelites had this very problem. When faced with troublesome circumstances, they found themselves looking back. Despite what they heard about the land of promise, their limited perception kept them desiring the things of old. Comfort and bondage was more appealing to them than their freedom in a land that flowed with milk and honey.

Many of you need to trust God more. Though you might not have seen the goodness that lies up ahead yet, you can indeed trust the report of the Lord. Even the best moments in your past can't compare to your new on it's worst day. As with anything transitory, it's a process that requires you to move past some ugly parts. But don't miss out on the beauty that's up ahead by staying focused on what's in your rearview.

Embrace your now. Your rearview can't possibly compare to where God is taking you!

Scripture(s) Meditation:

"Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.”"

Exodus 14:11-12 NKJV

Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.

Just as with driving, it's okay to look in your rear view for a brief second when switching lanes (season change). But it's time for many of you to return your focus to the front facing window. How will you change your focus and keep it there?

The way I will change my focus and keep it there, is by being more Intentional with my life. I will get into the habit of doing things that will keep me close walking with the lord. Praying, repenting , and reading my word more and telling others about who God really is and what he has done in my life. I have no other choice but to be intentional with my actions he’s been so good to me. I’m 33 with 4 healthy beautiful respectful children and I see how God used me to raise them and depend on him through it all. I come from a place of darkness where it seemed to be no light in sight…
