DAY 18

The Study of Lot’s Wife (Gen 19)

When God wanted to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, he sent angels to warn Lot’s family and gave them instructions that would keep them in safety.

Lot’s wife still had in mind what she left behind. One of the ways the devil can tempt and tame you, is having you looking back, setting your mind to where you are coming from (your past).

Dear WOMAN, burn the bridges. Where your treasure is there your heart will be. Do not look back!

The fact that Lot’s wife looked back is a proof that her treasure is in her past even after the angels told them what the future holds if they leave Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot’s wife treasures what she left (past) than her future.

If you treasure your old life, the devil will drag you to look back at your past. Dear WOMAN, leave your past, do not look back at Sodom and Gomorrah. Like the way Lot's family was given a promise of a glorious future, yet she made what she ought to have left behind destroy the present and even the future.

Dear WOMAN, GOD has a great plan for you, do not go back to what God is saving you from. Never go back to your past life.

They are the beckoning of the flesh, if you keep ruminating on it, you will go back. Once you make a decision to leave your Sodom and Gomorrah, burn the bridges, cut away from people and things that can drag you to look back.

Do not have your treasure in your old life, value where God is taking you to, value your new life.

Dear WOMAN, where is your treasure? Do you still value that past rough and carefree life? Are you still contemplating on going back to Sodom and Gomorrah (past life/old life)? 

Do you feel you are losing or missing a lot from your past life? Are you thinking of going back?

Living in the past is capable of ruining your new life; looking back can cause you to fall and stumble, destroying what is ahead of you. For you to enjoy your present and future, you must totally forget and don’t look back to your past.

Forget everything that might bring the remembrance of the past.

And Jesus said unto him, “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62)

Looking back will make you a "pillar of salt"
