Moving Forward or Backward?

For as the waistband clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole household of Israel and the whole household of Judah cling to Me,’ declares the Lord, ‘that they might be for Me a people, for renown, for praise and for glory; . . .
Jeremiah 13:11 NASB

The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.
Isaiah 43:21 NASB

but they did not listen.’
Jeremiah 13:11 NASB continued

Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.
Jeremiah 7:24 NASB

🌹Are you moving forward in the Lord? Surrender your life to God. Listen, obey, and praise His glory. For this you were created.

In The Sight of the Lord

He did right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done. 2 Kings 18:3‭ NASB
For he clung to the Lord; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the Lord had commanded Moses. 2 Kings 18:5‭-‬6 NASB

God used King David years beyond his time on earth. King Hezekiah, whom we read about yesterday, was influenced by the example of David. He trusted in the Lord. He clung to the Lord.
(clung: adhered to, hold tight as embracing, to cleve, remain close, attached).

🌹What impact are you making in the world today? Will you be remembered for your relationship with the Holy God? Will your example have others clinging to the Lord, not departing from following Him and keeping His commandments?

You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. Deuteronomy 13:4

It’s a command, not an option.
