No “U-Turns”

Sometimes when I leave the house, and I discover I forgot something, I make a “U-Turn” to go back and get it. And sometimes, depending on if I’m on a time crunch and I have a deadline to meet, that can be a not so good thing because it will put me behind schedule.

But in the spiritual, when God plotted the course to your life, He gave you everything you need. He left nothing out. There is nothing in your past that you need to rehash. There is nothing behind you that you need to retrieve and take into your future.

Your supernatural pockets are full with all the right gifts. You’ve got potential. You’ve got direction. In the natural, you might have to make a U-Turn to go back and get your Discover Card, but in the supernatural God packed your pocketbook with all the necessities you need (so to speak).

Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

Notice the scripture says, “He will make your paths straight.” It doesn’t say He will make way for U-Turns. No, God’s path for you is a straight one and it leads into destiny!

Don’t get caught up in what went wrong in your past. Don’t get caught up in taking the things that are behind you into your future. If God closed a door in the past it was for a reason. Make no U-Turns, God wants you to stay focused on the road ahead.

Realize, since the beginning God knew you and He had a plan and purpose for you. He has you right where He wants you.  You have a deadline to meet. If you keep rehashing the past and making U-Turns, you’ll hinder your appointment with destiny.

Rather than acknowledging what’s behind you, in all your ways acknowledge almighty God. When you do so, He’ll direct and make your paths straight as you charge forth on your journey of life!
