I REFUSE TO LOOK BACK
Pls read Deut.4:23-30.
"For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God..." vs. 24. For every new level you attain in your journey into destiny, there is a new devil. Take heed, that your don't forget the God that have led you hitherto through all the challenges of life into a good place.
Human memory is often very short and we often forget where we are coming from. See vs 25..."In the future, when you have children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time, do not corrupt yourself by making idols of any kind. This is evil in the sight of the Lord your God and will arouse His anger...". It is ironical that man will be steadfast when situation is unpleasant but after the blessing of God, when you are now comfortable, you know more see God as your all in all.
It is a very dangerous trend that can only lead to destruction. The devil is going about roaring like a lion looking for whom to devour, the moment you take your hand off the plough, you give the devil room to enter. Idols are not only carved images but anything you hold in your heart above God. When you turn money, position, attainment, educational status etc into your idol, it is a dangerous trend.
God is a jealous God. He will not share His glory with any man or deity. You must remain steadfast, even when you get to your promised land. In fact, that is when you need Him most. See vs 30..."Therefore know this day, and consider it in your heart, that the Lord Himself is God in heaven, above and on the earth beneath; there is no other". Halleluyah!
Declare with me, I refuse to look back in Jesus name!
