“Look Straight Ahead”
“Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.” Proverbs 4:25
Scripture Contemplation: Psalm 121; Proverbs 4; John 21; Acts 2…
There are many of us that spend too much time looking at the past, our mistakes and our failures. Even in moving forward we tend to get sidetracked by the things around us and can miss what is right before us.
I pray today’s Reflections brings comfort and peace to your heart and mind. I decree it be a continued source of encouragement and inspiration. Beloved, it is time to look straight ahead. Look in the direction that God has placed before us. Look at the ordained path that will lead to the manifestation of our blessings.
Of course this path is not simple! But nothing worth having or accomplishing ever is. And you can be certain that the enemy of our souls is waiting alongside that path to try and trip us up. It is a guarantee that he will do all that he can to make us fall, give up, get distracted and turn back. He can do none of these things successfully if we are fellowshipping with the Father and following His instructions, looking straight ahead. And should we fall? Then we get up, repent and keep moving.
We cannot possibly achieve our heart's desires if we are constantly looking backwards; preoccupied with our past and any failures. We have to learn to forgive ourselves and learn and grow from our experiences.
One of the hardest things to do at times is to keep looking straight ahead; especially with so many distractions. However, we must be like a horse with its bridle on. Its sole purpose is to keep the horse moving ahead by blocking its view of anything around it.
My Beloveds, may the spirit of peace and prosperity find permanent rest in your lives. I decree that every good thing that God has ordained for your life will become evident to you. Let the promises and word of God be your bridle. Spend quality time in the presence of God, as He directs your path. Keep looking straight ahead with confidence that God has already answered your prayers. You are blessed. Now go…and be a blessing.
