ďSo it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, ĎEscape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.íBut his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of saltĒ Genesis 19:17-26, NKJV.
I like basketball, but I had to let it go. Iím not saying I wonít watch basketball again, but it wonít ever have a certain place in my life anymore. I had to abandon it.
You wonít ever do this with a person or your marriage, but as you go into a new year, some things you are going to have to abandon. Recognize anything that has a hold on you that shouldnít. Pivot away from what you realize didnít do you anything good this year, not helping you get further to where God is taking you. Like a car on the highway, you will have to stop the car of your life, let it out on the road, and drive off. Leave it there. Drive off and donít look back.
Prayer: Father, I give you glory, and I thank you for all that you have done. I am willing to fast or fast from it if I need to, but this isnít going into the new year with me. Help me to stop and abandon it. By your grace, this is getting out of my life, and Iím not looking back. Iím receiving everything you have for me. In Jesusí name, Amen!
