Expect the unexpected and watch for surprizes:

As we enter a new year, I want to encourage you to constantly look forward. It’s OK to look back to see where you have come from, but only to see that, not to want to go backwards. The Israelites wanted to return to Egypt after God had done something extraordinary, but God had a Promised Land ahead of them. All that they had to do was to look in the same direction He was looking. That nation died in the wilderness and only two of them reached God’s promised destination.

They did not quit. We know their names. They are Joshua and Aaron. No one knows the names of those who never made it. They had quit, but quitting is not an option.

I experienced some setbacks and disappointments in 2014, but I am not looking back at them. I also had some wonderful things happen to me, but I am not looking back at them either and the reason is simple. They were for then. They were for yesterday and yesterday is gone. I know that I know that God has something even better ahead and that is where I am looking.

Paul said-
I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you'll see it yet!  Philippians 3:14-15.

If you want everything that God has for you, there are two things you need to always keep in mind.  The first one is that God has already done it. It is already completed. The second thing to remember is to keep going forward and never look back.

The people who never turn back are those who experience the fullness of God’s goodness. I want you to experience all the fullness of God’s goodness this coming year, so leave you with this thought-

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:  Exodus 14:13-15 (emphasis mine)

And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.Exodus 14:31.

Expect the unexpected and watch for surprizes.

The Realities of Eternity 
The bible talks about places like Heaven and Hell, which are very real.
Some folk deny their existence, but too many people testify of visiting them. I have! We all have differing testimonies, but also share similar things in common. 
In this trilogy of accounts, let me share with you part of my visits to Heaven, a 45 minute visit to Hell and the story of my own son Gary who died and was brought back to life to meet Jesus.
He is now with the Lord.

Daily Psalm מִזְמוֹר‎ & Proverb מִשְלֵי 

Who are those who fear the Lord? 

He will show them the path they should choose. 

They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land. 

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. 

He teaches them his covenant. 

My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Psalm 25:12-15.

Daily Prescription רָפָא‎ 

When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged him to touch the man and heal him. Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. Then, spitting on the man’s eyes, he laid his hands on him and asked, “Can you see anything now?” 

The man looked around. “Yes,” he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.” 

Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly. Jesus sent him away, saying, “Don’t go back into the village on your way home.” Mark 8:22-26
