Celebrity Christianity does not produce destiny champions. That was what failed the daughter of Saul, Michal, who was also the wife of David. She was a princess that became a queen; those were two forces that were affecting her. When David brought back the Ark of the Covenant with dancing, she ought to have been the one leading chorus there, but she stayed back at home. She separated herself because she wanted to distinguish herself.
While David was dancing before the Lord, she was looking through a window and she said, “Look at the king of Israel messing himself up!” When David came in to bless his family, she said, “Wasn’t the king of Israel glorious today that he messed himself up!” And David said, “Oh! You missed it. It was before the Lord.” That was her mistake. People that allow celebrity status to blind them also blind themselves to the finger of God. If you recognise that God put you where you are, you will no longer see any man but God.
Sometimes, the people that God will use to train you at the beginning stages are not going as far as you are ordained to go. But what they are to contribute to your life cannot be overruled.
For example, your primary school teacher might not do any other thing than being a primary school teacher, but if you did not stay under him/her, you would not have become what you are now. Don’t let anybody treat you like a celebrity. Take your share of the road. Take your share of the process and become what God has for you. There is no place to bypass the process.
PRAYER: Lord, I make a commitment intelligently not to fall as a prey to the deception of celebrity Christianity.
