DON’T LET ANYONE DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR WORK FOR GOD
Galatians 1:15-16 (NLT), “But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous grace. Then it pleased Him to reveal His son to me so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. When this happened, I did not rush out to consult with any human being.”
So many people have lost their place in God’s kingdom assignment, because they allowed themselves to be distracted by the voices of disgruntled people around them. If you want to fulfill God’s purpose for your life, you must be smarter than this.
Do not allow offended people talk you out of your place in God’s assignment. Apostle Paul in our anchor scripture said, “He did not rush out to consult with any human being.” Some people can misunderstand the happenings around you and utilize the circumstances of your life to utter words that may discourage you from your kingdom assignment. But you must guard your heart and keep yourself from offence!
Job 2:9-10a, says “Then His wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” But Job said to her, you speak as one of the foolish women speaks…” Never listen to anyone who wants to distract you from serving God. Continue to serve God diligently!
FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 7:35, “Now I say this for your own benefit; not to restrict you but to promote what is appropriate and secure undistracted devotion to the Lord.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS; I SERVE GOD WITH AN UNDISTRACTED DEVOTION. I WILL NEVER ALLOW ANYONE DISCOURAGE ME FROM SERVING GOD WITH MY ALL. I WILL REMAIN FOCUSED ON MY KINGDOM ASSIGNMENT!
ACTION POINT: Do more for the Lord. Serve God joyfully!
ONE YEAR BIBLE PLAN: Exodus 34-35; Matthew 22:23-46
