(Ex. 14:15) “And the Lord said unto Moses, wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward.”
The children of Israel had come out of Egypt and were crossing the Red Sea when they noticed that Pharaohs army was on their trail. Therefore, they began to cry unto Moses that “they were better off in Egypt, and how could he bring them out here to in the wilderness.” Thus, when they saw the enemy at their backs they began to panic. This has probably happened to all of us at some point in time, where the enemy was at our back side in pursuit of us and we wondered if we were going to be able to make it; however, here we stand.
When the enemy is at our back or on our tracks we must heed the word which the Lord told Moses “Go Forward”! We must continue to press forward toward our destiny, because there is a promised land which the Lord has for all of those who would serve him in Spirit and in truth. In fact, Jesus showed us that having the enemy behind you is not a bad thing because He told him during the wilderness temptation “Get thee behind me Satan (Matt 4:10).”
What matters child of God is that we continue to press forward; what matters is what we see in front of us; what matters is that we see Jesus at the head of the line. We are followers of Jesus, not vice-versus. Therefore, if Satan is at your back continue to press forward toward your destiny in Christ Jesus, because it is at our backside where want him, not out in front leading us.
God Bless You
