Going Backward?

During my morning reading, I found the phrase, "You keep going backward" in Jeremiah 15:6.

From where I am now, am I going forward or going backward in reaching my goals?Of course, this is commentary on spiritual matters, but it has application to other areas of life as well.

I found it interesting that God's Word identifies not only motion but direction.

There are numerous verses where words like these are used:

  • "backward",
  • "forward",
  • "stand firm", and
  • "rise up".

There are different times and seasons when certain actions are required.

Professional truck drivers who are looking to save money need to determine

  • exactly where they stand and
  • what direction they would like to go.

Ask and Answer Questions

Questions that would be good to answer are:

  1. Do I have a budget?

  2. How am I spending my money and do I need a spending diary?

  3. How much debt do I have?

  4. Am I working to become debt-free?

  5. What goals can I set to help me get where I would like to be?

It's a good idea from time to time to ask if you're going backward or going forward in reaching your goals.
