Scripture: Genesis 16:7-8
The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”
Notice what the angel asks Hagar. “Where have you come from, and where are you going?” When we feel lost in life, it’s important to ask ourselves these two questions.
Let’s start with the first part of the question, your past. What has God brought you out of? How has He led you to grow and mature in Him? What has your walk with Him been like? Has He ever failed you? What prayers has He answered for up to now?
And now for the second part, your future. What has God called you to? Where is He leading you? Are you keeping in mind His promise of providing you an eternal home with Him?
When we remember where we’ve been with the Lord and where we’re going with Him, it’s easier to put our present in perspective. Remember that your Father has always been faithful to You, and He always will be, even in this current circumstance.
