Have you ever had a deep down desire in your heart for something good and that will serve others? The Lord places specific desires in our hearts to serve His purpose and not our own but unfortunately due to a lack of faith or due to listening to the world we often allow Satan to separate us from God’s purpose in our life. How does this happen you might be asking? Many people miss their purpose or their calling due to simply not listening to God for the steps that are to be taken and knowing His voice when it is time to step out of the boat to reach our destination.
Due to our human nature of looking for the path of least resistance or the shortest way to our goals we often miss the lessons that are needed in the wilderness to develop our character and to prepare us for our future. If there is something in your heart that is good may I encourage you this morning to not allow anyone to distract you or hold you back! May God recall your inner most desires this morning and give you the nudge to step out in faith to serve His will instead of your own or someone else’s….
