Psalms 77:5-6 (KJV) (5) I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. (6) I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
Sometimes we need to look back. It could be so we can see how far we have come. Sometimes it could be to examine how far we have strayed. Either way, we should also check to see where God desires for us to be. We can then take the necessary steps to reach the goal God has for us.
(Read Psalm 4:4)
