Christians Need to Look Back
Sometimes we as Christians need to stop along lifes road and look back. Although it might have been winding and steep, we can see how God directed us by His faithfulness. Heres 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 Gods 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.
