Psalms 66:5 “Take a good look at God’s wonders–they’ll take your breath away.”
Psalms 66:6 “He converted sea to dry land; travelers crossed the river on foot. Now isn’t that cause for a song?”(MSG),
Indeed 2014 has been a fantastic year for us all but at the same time we need to take stock.
King David in our text today looked back at the journey so far. The journey from where they were to where they are now and re-counted some of the experiences they had on the way. Looking back helps us to achieve two major things:
1. It helps to appreciate God who has been our helper
2. It helps to learn from the experience
Starting and finishing a project or a year is like embarking on a journey as we have been discussing over the last three days. When you start a journey and finishes it, certain things would have happened. At the completion of a journey, you should be able to look back and first of all thank God, your principal Helper, the people He brought your way and also ask yourself certain questions.
Recently, my family and I, came back from a journey, we drove for about nine hours. It was our yearly family vacation and we decided to go for some adventures. By the way, I love the trills of an adventure. When we got back to base, my wife and I decided to take stock. We looked at the journey holistically, thanking God for safety, protection, preservation and the experiences we had. In looking back however, we identified some gray areas and the interesting ones.
We looked at areas where we had it very smooth, where we had a flat tire, where we had a little issue with the car. We spoke about the places where we experienced heavy traffic that slowed us down. We considered the interesting places where we had great fun, wonderful places we’ll love to visit again…(to be continued)
