TOPIC: When the Game is Over! Wasting the Waster!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Philippians 3: 8-16 (NKJV)
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.
Remember the boy of yesterday’s devotional who was distracted from his father’s errand! You are sent by God to this world on a divine errand and one day you will be required to give an account of how you played the game of life on earth.
We have a home and a father to return to at the end of life’s journey when all is said and done. Don’t rejoice when people are clapping for you while doing the wrong things. AND SATAN IS DETERMINED TO DISTRACT YOU FROM YOUR GOD-GIVEN GOALS! Satan wants you to major in MINORS and ignore the MAJORS! That is the spirit of the waster! Arise today and tell God that THE WASTER MUST BE WASTED! Avoid distractions!
Paul said in Verse 13 of today’s scripture: “THIS ONE THING I DO!” Not these million things I do! You are sent here for an assignment and God is waiting for you. When the ballgame of life is over, when night (death) comes, the crowd will be gone, and you will be left alone to face your Maker. Never forget that successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.
By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination. YOU CANNOT DO BIG THINGS IF YOU ARE DISTRACTED BY SMALL THINGS. Let this be your motto: STARVE YOUR DISTRACTIONS! FEED YOUR FOCUS! Goethe said: “A distracted existence leads to NO GOALS. GOD FORBID! Listen again: DISTRACTIONS MAKE US TO WANDER! BUT FOCUS MAKES US TO ARRIVE AT DESTINATIONS!
Life is not a relay race and there is no retum match. Watch and pray against the GOOD THINGS that may not be the BEST THINGS!
