The news isn’t always what you might be hoping for. Whether you lost a job, or said goodbye to the one you loved earlier than planned. All news doesn’t always feel like good news.
Just like king David in 2 Samuel 18 sat by the gate and waited to hear good news from the battlefield. Take a look
“Behold, the Cushite (Ethiopian) arrived, and said, “Let my lord the king receive good news, for the Lord has vindicated you today by rescuing you from the hand (power) of all those who stood against you.” 32 The king asked the Cushite, “Is the young man Absalom [my son] safe?” The Cushite replied, “May the enemies of my lord the king, and all those who rise against you to do evil, be [dead] like that young man is.”
33 [k]The king was deeply moved and went to the upper room over the gate and wept [in sorrow].
King David had reasons to be happy ( he had accomplishded his goal, but his son was dead) not the news he was expecting, right? But at the end of the day, what you and king David does next really matters.
Let’s explore our options.
1.Moving Backwards- pushes you further away from your goals.
2. Staying Stuck- is pointless.
Both options are not any of our options. So moving on..
The best choice is learning now to be decisive. Learn to make the best not just for you, but for all the ones who have gone before you, and for those watching you now.
Moving forward is the only option.
Remember to keep the faith, because the victory is already won.
So move forward with style. …
