As you pass through your days of small things, one of the things that bring discouragement is looking at the road. The Bible says the children of Israel were discouraged because of the hardness of the road. Also, many people don’t finish what they started because they looked at what they were going through.
You are going to a place whether in wealth, spiritual things or destiny and to get there you must go through somethings. But while going through, you must know what you must be doing, otherwise you will end in a wrong destination. Joseph was in prison but he was doing the right things; he was serving with the right attitude. Paul in prison was also worshipping and ministering to saints through intercession and letters to the churches which have now become our Bible. They didn’t complain or do the wrong things. Abraham focused on his goal. Every time the devil succeeds to take your heart from the goal, you will start sinking in all kinds of issues.
As soon as you see where you are going, certain things will begin to lose value and importance. You will see people for who they are. Joseph didn’t forget who he was when Potiphar’s wife offered herself to him because he focused on his goal. He knew that it was not simply a fling, but a rope in the hand of that woman to trap his destiny and he made his decision based on that. As you journey on in life, make sure your decisions issue forth from your goal in life.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive eyes that see the goal and I pray for grace to go through the journey with the right attitude and the right decisions in Jesus’ name. Amen.
