NO PARKING. NO WAITING. KEEP MOVING. BY ORDER - February 2014

NO PARKING. NO WAITING. KEEP MOVING. BY ORDER

 

A great lesson can be learnt from this simple warning usually painted on boards or the fences of banks or other 

private institutions: Parking, waiting, stopping are highly prohibited and will be considered an offence punishable 

by law. Afterall, you were forewarned. Keep Moving!

 

A fable has it that one day the hare boasted he was the fastest of all the animals and challenged them to a race, 

the other animals backed down from the challenge all except the tortoise. So the day for the race was set and the 

race commenced, the hare was already kilometers ahead of the tortoise from the very first minute, but looking 

back and feeling complacent with the lengthy distance between him and his opponent, the hare decided to take a 

Page 2 of 9 short nap under the cool shade of the trees. And he slept and slept, when he woke up hours later and made a

mad dash for the finishing line; he was shocked beyond disbelief to see the tortoise crossing the line surrounded by the 

cheering animals applauding him.

Only if the hare had kept moving. Why did he park by the roadside to have a nap while his competitor was still 

We need to obey Gods order and keep moving. If our adversary knows how to keep moving – going to and fro 

seeking who to devour, then the children of God also need to keep moving. The reason why many are praying to 

pursue and overtake their enemies today, is because they gave the enemy the head start and allowed the enemy 

to gain considerable distance ahead of them. We took a nap, slept, veered off course in chase of distractions, lost 

focus on the goal, causing us to now play ‘catch-up’ with the enemy.

God never promised the road ahead would be easy. Abraham for one didn’t even knows where he was going, 

but by faith he kept moving. He kept looking forward to a city whose builder and maker is God. He saw it from a 

distance and never looked back to the country he came from.

Abrahams great grandson Joseph had the same kind of ‘keep moving’ faith; when he instructed his people that 

they would leave Egypt and commanded them to take his bones with them and not leave him buried and behind 

in Egypt. He was saying: dead or alive i will keep on moving forward, i won’t park or stop until i get to the promise 

It was faith that kept Moses going, leaving Egypt he kept moving, keeping his eyes on the one who is invisible. 

Moses was one man who knew how to keep going on even in the face of daunting task and challenges; a pursuing 

wicked king, a red sea, stubborn people, lack of food and water in the wilderness etc. He simply kept moving on day 

The road ahead might not be easy and free from challenges, it certainly won’t be a walk in the park, but as the 

famous gospel singer, Ron Kenoly, in one of his songs says. If you are going through hell keep moving, and if you 

are going through hell dont stop! The Psalmist said, though i walk throught the valley of the shadow of death, I will 

Yes our cup will run over. Yes we will overflow, but whenever you get to that point in the road and you are faced 

with an insurmountable task and difficulty, remember. Keep moving forward in faith.

Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
