Have you ever been offered a position or something that you knew was not the Lords will for your life? Very tempting, however you knew that it was a distraction from His purpose for you. What did you do?
Many times men see potential and skill in us and try to channel it in the way they think is best. But what is the Lord saying?
Lets have a look at this scripture:
John 6: 14 - 15
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the
15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
The world tried this with Jesus. What did Jesus do? The Lord did not wait for them to come, He took Himself out of the situation
before He was even approached.
How many people have aborted destinies for titles and temporary positions? How many people have detoured from the path of life to that which seems to be good? Very dangerous and not worth it.
The wise resist any form of detour from the Lords plan for their lives. Not worth it, for temporary pleasure which can end up being very costly. What matters most is 'well done good and faithful servant'. Are you faithful and committed to what you know you need to do?
The Lord is counting on you. Refuse and resist all the distractions. Stay on the path you know is right, The path to destiny and purpose.
Sacrifice is a step beyond convenience. Bill Johnson
