If you have decided to live for/serve God, serve him with your whole heart, mind, strength and soul regardless of your present circumstances. At the moment, you may be facing numerous trials and temptations, which might cause you to look back and wonder if you even made the right decision to serve God. No, you didn’t make a mistake! “Jesus said to him, No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back [to the things behind] is fit for the kingdom of God.” [Luke 9:62, AMP].
Moses had it all in the Egyptian royal household and yet the Bible says that “By faith, Moses, when grown, refused the privileges of the Egyptian royal house. He chose a hard life with God’s people rather than an opportunistic soft life of sin with the oppressors.” [Hebrews 11:24-26, THE MSG]. The NLT version says that “He thought it was better to suffer for the sake of Christ than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward.”
Things may not be going great for you right now; it seems that there is one issue after another, but REFUSE TO GO BACK! Refuse to put your hand to the plow and look back. The former days before Christ may have seemed “good” to the physical eyes but those day and its activities led to spiritual death. That is why a great wise man said “Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise.” [Ecclesiastes 7:10, NLT].
If you are in Christ, go FULL out no matter the circumstances. FIX your eyes on Jesus and you will not look back, after all “he who looks at the SUN does not see his shadows.”
