Let your eyes look erectly ahead; And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Pros. 4:25 NASB
Why is the windshield bigger than a rear view mirror? Well.. duh! It’s because I need to look at the road ahead and watch where I am going. Yet, I’ve met some who continually try to plan a future, but keep running into things, simply because they spend more time looking in the rear view mirror than the windshield.
The encouragement today from our Master, is to "look ahead”. Our heads are designed to look ahead and from side to side, and not behind. And our feet are pointed forward for a reason!
As it is written, “Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established”. [v26]
Beloved, if you want your ways to be established, then, ask the Lord to show you the right path… then train your eyes to watch where you’re going…not where you’ve been. Stay focused!
