Don't Turn Back.
(14:30 min ).
You know how it is to go into an office building and try to find the location to get to a certain person. Or you’re in a shopping mall and you’re trying to figure out where a certain store is. So you go up to a map that shows where everything is positioned. Usually it will have a red star on it that says, “You are here.” That shows you where you are in relationship to where you’re trying to get.
That’s how God has a spiritual map of your life. When there is a certain place you want to be, God has that all mapped out. He knows just how you can reach that destination to see your desire fulfilled. So He has a big red star on your map that says, “You are here.” Then in another spot on the map is where your desire is.
God knows the exact distance from where you are to where you want to be. As you keep moving toward that destination, you will get there. Every day you will become nearer to it. That’s how you can face tomorrow when it appears that you’re not getting anywhere. Believe that you’re on that map and you’re going toward where you want to be.
Maybe you have prayed for a bigger home for your family or you need a better car because yours is breaking down. Perhaps you’ve been wanting spiritual growth or you’re asking God for a person to be converted. Maybe on your map is a destination that says here is the person to be your friend or to be your spouse. In another place there’s a destination marked health and well-being or financial help. Maybe you’re standing at the red star and you’re working towards getting over to where there is a good job or advancement or benefits. You want to see your calling or career or ministry take off. Everything you’re praying about is on your map.
As you are on God’s map working toward getting to your destination the thing to remember is this: you have to keep moving forward. Don’t turn back. When it becomes tough to face tomorrow, keep moving forward. In other words, don’t return to where the red star was. Every time you view the map of your journey, the red star that says, “You are here,” should have moved nearer to your desire.
Don’t go back to where you were a day ago or week ago or a year ago. As you continue to move out each day the distance between where you are and where you want to be is getting shorter. So don’t wander off the map! Don’t wander off the map out of discouragement or confusion or misdirection. That will increase the length of time it will take to get where you want to be. You want to shorten the distance, not make it wider. To do that means you’re going to have to keep facing tomorrow and not turn back.
When disappointment or troubles come, you don’t get the Charlie Brown syndrome. The comic strip character, Charlie Brown, once said, “There’s no problem so big that I can’t run from it.” That’s how we can feel at times. “If the problem is too big, I can always run from it.” We want to turn back and avoid the confrontation or unpleasantness or pain. This is what the Hebrews wanted to do when they were on the map trying to get to the land God had promised them.
As they made their way on the journey, they hit hard times. This was no fun. So they wanted to turn back to Egypt even if it meant going into bondage again. Acts 7 says, They determined not to be subject to Moses [refusing to listen to or obey him]; but thrusting him aside they rejected him, and in their hearts yearned for and turned back to Egypt (Acts 7:39). That generation never reached their destination because in their hearts they had given up.
If you keep pressing forward, God will take you to the place you can experience all of the wonderful things He has mapped out for you. When you decide you’re going to face tomorrow and not turn back, there isn’t anything, no matter how big it is, that can stop you from reaching the destination on the map.
Remember that the star which says, “You are here” is getting nearer to your desired place every day. Keep pressing forward by the grace of God. You will reach it.
A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:
“I WILL MAKE IT THERE!”
Here is a powerful prayer
to say out loud:
Father, I am determined to follow the map You have for my life. I am headed toward my destination, and nothing is going to stop me from getting there. No problem is too big that You cannot get me past it. So I refuse to turn back. I’m going to make it there! In the name of Jesus. Amen.
