No Turning Back
Genesis 19: 17,26
Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain. 26: But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
How many times do you, as a mom, steer your child away from harm? You teach your child to hold your hand while crossing the street, not to touch the stove top when it’s hot, or not to swim in the deep end of the pool until they are good swimmers. Just as we protect our children, God protects His children— all of us.
Throughout the Bible, God gives us clear direction and wisdom. God tries to protect and keep us from harm, but sometimes we do not heed His warnings. Lot and his family were fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah because God was destroying these evil cities. The angel warned Lot’s family to flee and not to look back. But, like so many of us, Lot’s wife could not resist the temptation to look back. She chose to take matters into her own hands, not truly trusting in what the angel had said. Unfortunately, her decision to look back one last time became her last.
God is a holy God. He is a loving God, but a righteous God. His word will ring true every single time. The question is, do we trust Him? Do we really believe His word and believe what He says is truth? Don’t be like Lot’s wife and test God. Believe Him and trust that He wants good for you, not harm. (Jeremiah 29:11) Trust in God today— that He is a loving father, protecting you from harm.
Father, You are a loving father, who only wants the best for me— to protect and guide me always. God, I pray that I would not be like a rebellious teenager...that I will submit to Your ways. I want to do life Your way. I have tried it my way and my way doesn’t work! Open up my eyes to Your will. Teach me- I am willing to learn.
