Christians Need to Look Back

Sometimes we as Christians need to stop along life’s road and look back. Although it might have been winding and steep, we can see how God directed us by His faithfulness. Here’s how F. E. Marsh described what the Christian can see when he looks back:

  • The deliverances the Lord has wrought (Deut. 5:15).
  • The way He has led (Deut. 8:2)
  • The blessings He has bestowed (Deut. 32:7-12).
  • The victories He has won (Deut. ll:2-7).
  • The encouragements He has given (Josh. 23:14).

When we face difficulties, we sometimes forget God’s past faithfulness. We see only the detours and the dangerous path. But look back and you will also see the joy of victory, the challenge of the climb, and the presence of your traveling Companion who has promised never to leave you nor forsake you.
