Don’t dwell on the past

“Elisha stopped following him. Then he took the yoke of oxen, slaughtered them, cooked their meat over the wooden yokes of the oxen and gave it to the people to eat. Then he got up, went after Eliyahu and became his servant.”

1 Kings 19:21 CJB

Here we see Elisha deciding to follow Eliyahu who is following the LORD! He not only decides to follow, he takes his oxen, barbecues them on their yokes and feeds his friends, making it difficult to go back to his old life!

“You are to follow Adonai your God, fear Him, obey His mitzvot (commands), listen to what He says, serve Him and cling to Him.”

Deuteronomy 13:5 CJB

We need to follow the LORD without looking back at the world we left behind! Holding onto Him, knowing He is holding onto us and is never letting go!

“Seek Adonai and His strength; always seek His presence.”

Psalm 105:4 CJB

Today, look to the LORD. Don’t return to your old ways, but look to the future with the LORD! Have a blessed day seeking the LORD!
