Moving Forward

Seems the Holy Days can be hard on our hearts.  I find myself surrounded by powerhouse people who have been brought to their knees by sin, sickness, and struggle. It has been a whirlwind of emotions. And I have been asking the Lord to give me insight, not only to know how to pray in power for them, but to learn from their stories, their reactions, their deep, deep aches.

And I repeat again something that my friend and spiritual teacher, John Dee, taught me, “Go mainly, mostly to Jesus.”

We don’t give in to the flesh. It betrays us with destructive deceptions.
We don’t give in to idolotry. Those man-made gods have no breath or healing or comfort.
We don’t give in to running away. Those helpless days are past.

We can’t go back to Egypt. We were slaves there.
No, we must press deeper into the desert. Our God has led us here, and He will provide for us here. He will make Himself known as the great I AM. As I have been praying for God’s people to be lifted up, the song “Moving Forward” came to my spirit. It makes me weep every time. He makes all things new. All things. He makes them new.

No, we cannot go back.  Only forward into more of Him.
May God bless your journey with “all power in His hands as He gives a second chance.”

Moving Forward
by Israel Houghton

What a moment
You have brought me to
Such a freedom I have found in You
You’re the Healer
Who makes all things new
Yeah yeah yeah


I’m not going back
I’m moving ahead
Here to declare to You
My past is over in You
All things are made new
Surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving, moving forward

(2nd verse)

You have risen
With all power in Your hands
You have given me
A second chance

Hallelujah hallelujah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(back to bridge)


You make all things new
You make all things new
And I will follow You
