OVERVIEW SCRIPTURE: Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. – Psalm 37:4
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where there is no direction, stagnation and frustration are inevitable.
It is an established fact that where there is no direction, stagnation and frustration are inevitable.
While we were growing up spiritually, there was a fire-brand brother who wanted to go into ministry. He felt that the best place for him to start the ministry was Lagos state, Nigeria. So, he went to Lagos and started a ministry. After a while, he closed down the ministry in Lagos and later relocated to Port Harcourt to start afresh. In Port Harcourt, it still did not work, so he moved to Abuja within a short period of time. You know, all these happened as a result of lack of direction from God.
Beloved, life is too precious to gamble with. Many people have gambled into marriage and gambled out because they had no time to seek the Will of God for their lives.
Beloved, one of the easiest ways to know the Will of God is to be passionate for God; convince God that you are not ready to make a move until you have heard from Him. When you are at this point, God will put His desires in your heart.
Remember this: where there is no direction, stagnation and frustration are inevitable.
1. Insist on the Will of God for your life; never take a step without God’s direction.
2. Never allow the pressures of life to influence your decision.
