Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem,” (Luke 9:51, NKJV)
It is easy to become distracted in the Christian life! It seems like the moment you understand what God wants you to do; it feels like everyone around you requires your time and attention! The Bible teaches us that when the time came for Jesus to go to the cross he, set his face toward Jerusalem so that nothing would prevent him from accomplishing His faithful will. He was determined not to turn away from his mission of the cross. If you know what God wants you to do then set your sights toward that goal with full determination to accomplish it. Proverbs 4:25 says, “Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you.” Your resolve to go where God is leading ought to be evident to those people around you. Beware of becoming so sidetracked by the opportunities around you that you lose sight of God’s goal for you. Once you have received a clear assignment from God your response should be an unwavering obedience.
God Bless, Pastor Rick
