Don’t Turn Around


Don’t You Let Nobody Turn You Round,
Turn You Round, Turn You Round
Don’t You Let Nobody Turn You Round,
Walking Up The Kings Highway


One of the biggest issues standing in the way of forward progress is perseverance. We start a bit and then stop. We don’t lose those the weight because we cease our program. We don’t finish the book, because we allow things to stand in our way. We stop.

The road is often difficult to a better future. We have to step over the ways that we have been before. We have to stop being how we have been. We have to change. Yes, we must persevere. The book of Hebrews says: “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:36)

The Bible writer is simply telling us to be like the slave singer. Don’t allow anyone or anything to stand in the way of your progress to the goal. Don’t allow anyone or anything to turn you around from the road towards the promise of God. Don’t allow anyone or anything to stop you!

God has called us to be ambassadors of the coming kingdom. Let us live and work in such a way that all will see that we are “walking up the kings highway.”


Holy God, we come to you today knowing that you have promised us a glorious future, but we wonder about our capability to possess it. Please guide our feet that we might see where we need to go. Please, strengthen our limbs that we might have the ability to go where we need to go. Please enlighten our mind that we might perceive thy leading. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
