But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26
How many times have you looked back and said "I don’t want to let go?" Maybe never verbally said those words, but your actions speak loudly enough for you. Your choosing to stay in a relationship God did not intend for you to be in, your being too afraid to apply for that job, your being too skeptical and not trying alternate treatments or getting a second opinion…these are often ways we say I don’t want to let go and move forward.
But today I encourage you to look at Lot’s wife. Her refusing to let go cost a deadly price. Don’t let the past keep you stagnant and paralyzed there to the point that you cannot see the blessings that are in front of you. The devil intended those things that happened to you for evil against you, to break you and to defeat you. But you are more than a conqueror! You have already received the victory in Jesus. You are a victor and in letting go and moving forward, you open your hands and heart for the blessing of the Lord to fall upon you.
