This month I'll be trying to share last month's notes from the She Reads Truth blog- Women in the OT. Mostly just a cut and paste from Instagram. I may not share all the days. But some.
If you read through the study or are just starting to, leave me a comment and let me know how it's going. I can pray for you also.
Lot's WifeDay 8
#shereadstruth friends! How are you? I didn't post yesterday as it was a memory verse and it was a busy and wonderful Sunday. We are going through the book of Revelation is been wonderful.
This morning I spent in proverbs reading through what I've copied.
But just reading through about Lot's wife this evening and it was all so good! I'll dig deeper tomorrow, but wisdom from proverbs and a reminder not to look back at the sin I've left behind so perfect.
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do,forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Finally sitting down to post this, how is your reading going?
I've read over yesterday's #shereadstruth verses several times. Just going over again and again the situation, the outcome.
The sons in law stayed behind. Why? Attached to stuff there? Friends? Job security? They thought Lot to be joking. Was it Lots life did they not believe him because of the way he had lived his life?? was it his witness? of course in the end we all choose for ourselves. I just wonder.
What about us/me? When we're called out of darkness to step into the unknown.
Lot was given instructions where to go, where not to go. From the very angels that escorted them out of the city!! and even then Lot out of FEAR said " I cannot escape to the mountains lest some evil overtake me and I die"
Fear. It can drive me if I let it. I've struggled with fear all my life. When I became a believer I searched the scriptures and clung to the promises about fear. Yet it can still grip us all. The unknown.
God has brought me out of darkness and sin, why would he lead us/me to a place of danger? He wouldn't. HE simply would not, in his goodness, his grace, his mercy.
Lot's wife, I can't even say I wouldn't have glanced back or at least been tempted. What's going on back there? My life as I knew it, burning, who's back there? What did I leave. It was bad but it wasn't the unknown. Where am I going? It couldn't have been easy without something or someone to focus on. But Jesus. Oh but sweet, wonderful, kind, loving Jesus. Light.Grace. Love. LIFE. it doesn't matter where I'm going if I'm going with you Lord. Better is one day in your courts than thousands elsewhere. I may not know where I'm going but I know who I'm following and HE eclipses all fear of the unknown. Lord help me not to ever look back.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
I pray you all have a great week, look up!!
