Picking up our cross and carrying it is oftentimes painful because we are going against what the flesh wants in order to please God by obeying Him. The enemy will do everything he can to try and defeat us when we try to walk according to the spirit and resist him. Is God speaking to you about a situation you are in? Is He telling you to NOT look back?


The Most Important Video Ever-This Could Change Your Life!



Genesis 19:12-26, NKJV


Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed


12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”


14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.


15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”


18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.”


21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”


Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.


23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.


26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.


Is there something in your life that you have given up, walked away from, or fled? Something you knew was not God’s will? It may have been difficult for you, and by fleeing that situation, it may have even been emotionally painful. But in your endeavor to truly serve God, obey Him, and please Him by picking up your cross and carrying it, you suffered and you fled.


Just like Lot and his wife fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah, what you fled was corrupt, sinful, and destructive. We’ve all had our Sodom and Gomorrah’s we’ve had to flee. It could have been an ungodly relationship with someone, a job, an addiction, or simply a favorite television show; regardless, it was not easy. In the process, Satan probably threw every excuse, every fear, and every temptation your way in order to keep you in bondage to that person or thing.


So now you have fled, but thoughts are flooding your mind..memories…good or bad, it doesn’t matter. They are memories of that person or thing, sometimes scenarios of what that person (if it was an ungodly relationship) might be doing now that you are gone from them. These are things that keep you down, and keep your mind busy so that God can’t move in your life. They keep you sad, depressed, hopeless and miserable.


But just like Lot’s wife, is God telling you not to look back? Verse 17, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” Have you considered that, had you not escaped, you would have somehow been destroyed, whether in your body or in your spirit?


If God is telling you to press forward and to not look back, rest assured, you’re not alone. He has given you the power through the Holy Spirit and the strength in His very Word to overcome the lies and the bondages of the enemy. Remember that there is always a spiritual battle being waged on this earth, and in the heavenlies. The powers of hell want to ensure that you are knocked down and unable to perform the call God has upon your life. Remember, the kingdom of hell wants to destroy the Kingdom of God on this earth–but we know that Satan was already defeated at the cross!


Don’t be fooled by your emotions. Just as God can operate through our emotions, so can the enemy. Rebuke the devil today, stand up say, “I am a child of the most high God, and in the name of Jesus Christ, the powers of hell have no dominion over me! I am moving forward in the Holy Spirit, and praise God, I refuse to look back!”


Scripture reading: Ephesians 6:10-20; 1 Corinthians 15:57; 1 John 5:4

      Leah I loved you comments on loving god more. You have a Christ honoring heart and I can see that. I have struggled with this myself and have been a Christian for over 35 years. I am going to try admitting to God I don’t love him enough and allow him to strengthen my relationship with him. We are all learning from other Christians and the Holy Spirit as this is a team effort, or should be. One comment I must make to you is about Perry Stone. I too used to really like him but have had my eyes opened by the Lord. Please check out this link God Bless All

      Not looking back is only good when you are in full flight panic running away from something. Other than that reflecting on the past can give you great insight on what could happen again in similar circumstances. Its not a good idea to ignore.

        Lynn is talking about turning from sin through the power of the holy spirit, I guess you can call that “full flight panic….” as Pix puts it. (well put by the way) don’t look back lest you be caught up again in its snares.
        Pix is talking about getting to the point where you can do that, by reflection on the past as a source of learning for the present and future action. :smile:

        whats going on here Lynn and Pix are on the same page :shock:

        • Pix

          The difference is I speak plain, not in their specialised incomprehensible dark age language of demons, bats out of hell, and perverted diseased fear porn. “Shocking”. :lol:

          I call a politician a politician, not a saint or angel. Their religions amount to political thought and belief intolerant dictatorships, spinning their usual web of deceit and vilifications of anyone who disagrees.

          Agreed, Lyn is right-on as usual. There is never a shortage of critics.

          Lyn, a kite rises against the wind, and some in here (seem to attack you weekly) have a lot of wind…

          Keep the faith girl, love your articles!

      Interesting and resonating. I wonder if there were some souls who were led out of a couple of ill fated Japanese cities in the summer of 45′.
