Don’t Look Back

Ge 19:26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

Lot and his family were told not to look back.  They were told to flee the city so full of sin and keep their eyes straight ahead.  So often we find ourselves looking back.  We think: what if I had done different, said different, reacted different or if only…etc.  Past is past and we cannot change it.  Future is future and we cannot control or guess what it holds.  We live in the here and now.  We need to be fully present where we are: present with our minds, emotions and actions.  God wants us in the present.  The past is under the blood of the cross and the future is in His hands.  We are to keep our eyes on Him and what He is telling us to do right now.  Let us determine not to look back.  Let us look at the present and at our Lord, God Who has all things (including us) in the palm of His hand.
