But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
-Look-back means lack of focus or to recall. Lack of focus can stem from stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation, drug use, stroke, anaemia, head injury, dementia, poor nutrition, frustration, fear, inclination to the past, low self worth & lack of faith.
-Lot & his family were saved when the angels destroyed the city of Sodom & Gomorra. His wife having been warned; lost focus, looked back & became a pillar of salt. Her lack of faith & inclination to the past became a mast of salt that others may see. Just like the dead Sea which comprised of pillars of salt & could not support any aquatic habitations, she lost her life. Likewise, when Moses led the Israelites to war against Amalekites, he let down his hand in some instances & Amalek prevailed (Exo 17:11). When we lack focus in life & look back, we become like pillars of salt & our dreams die. When we let down our hands & refrain from prayer & thanksgiving, the enemy prevails. Let us put our focus on God & fight our battles in prayer. He renews our strength & re-energises our focus that His purposes may be accomplished in our lives.
Lord our savour, save us from looking back in our lives, that we may always focus on You. As we begin a new week lead us in realigning our desires with Your will. Help us Father, to focus on what You called us to do & strengthen us when we are weak. May Your peace be upon our leaders, schools, families & country. We give You all the honour & praise. Amen
