Moving, moving, moving on;
From one place to another
But are we really moving forward or In Reverse?
Moving forward requires taking steps forward.
Moving backward requires taking steps backward.
You may ask yourself, if I’m taking steps forward, how can I take steps backward (go in reverse). The answer is we can physically take steps forward by walking, but spiritually turn our back and go in reverse by not walking in the ways of God (Jesus Christ).
We don’t walk the way Jesus Christ walked, and we don’t talk as Jesus talked (confess God’s promises in our lives). We must walk and talk as Jesus did because the power of life and death is in our mouth. Our thoughts dictate our actions.
We must align our thoughts with the Word of God so our actions will reflect the actions of Jesus. Then and only then will we fall forward and not In REVERSE.
But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. (Jeremiah 7:23-24)
The key is coming toward God, not turning your back away from God in rejection of Him and His Word.
