Looking back

Genesis 19:26


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


There are several scriptures where God tells me not to look back. Over the weekend I had to innerstand this lesson.


To start, time doesn’t really exist…especially in the Kingdom. The only thing that matters is now.


According to Google the definition of now is at the present moment. The only way to ever fully experience now is to be in it.


I had a slight argument with someone and I shut it down pretty quickly by telling them that I didn’t want to engage in the negativity. What I did next was exactly what God told me not to do. I looked back.


See, after the argument I called my best friend to tell her what happened but she wasn’t available to talk. I then called another friend but she was unavailable too. I decided to go for a walk and that’s when God explained to me why none of my friends were available to attend my “travel back to the past”.


In my flesh I just needed to “vent”. But in the spirit I was looking back. No longer experiencing the now but dragging the past right into each new now that my Creator has gifted me with. Source explained to me that by me conversing over and over again about what happened not only was I living in the past but I was also creating my future. Inviting more of what I did not want into my life.


I innerstand the power of words and I know that with each word I utter I am literally creating new nows.


So if I know that why did I call my friends in the first place? Because the humanness in me is used to that type of behavior but as a child of The Most High, Source promised to ALWAYS create a door to help me escape from my lower self.


My friends not answering the phone was the door that I needed.When I think about Lots wife I think about a smart beautiful Queen but her past is what caused her to turn into a pillar of salt. She probably experienced a lot of pain and heartache and these events tormented her. She dwelled in her past causing bitterness and resentment which in turn preserved her in those moments of time.


Chemistry defines salt as any chemical compound formed from the reaction of an acid with a base. Why am I giving you the chemical definition? Well my dear Atom, Source used the term “salt” for a reason. To show me what will cause me to react with certain elements.


Each new now comes with a lesson and it’s up to me to learn from it and grow from it. I would like to close with another scripture :


”Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ.”


Philippines 3:13-14
