Many years ago the Lord gave me a principle I call the First Law of Spiritual Progress. It goes like this:
I can’t go back. I can’t stay here. I must go forward.
You can’t go back to the past, not to relive the good times or to undo the mistakes you made. But you can’t stay where you are either. Life is a river that flows ever onward. It matters not whether you are happy in your present situation or whether you seek deliverance from it. You can’t stay where you are forever. The only way to go is forward.
Let this be our watchword in 2019.
Onward, always onward with the Lord!
