Good Words for Today: July 2

post date: July 2, 2016
Some years ago the Lord gave me a set of statements I call the First Law of Spiritual Progress:
I can't go back.
I can't stay here.
By God's grace, I must go forward.
You can't go back to change the past or to relive it. You can't stay where you are because life is like a river that flows ever onward. The one thing you can do is go forward with the Lord.
Even if we want to go back, we can’t. And we can’t stay where we are. God’s call is always onward, forward, moving out by faith into the unknown future. In the spiritual life, direction makes all the  difference. It’s not where we’ve been but where we’re going that matters.
