TITLE: EVEN SUCCESS DISTRACTS
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
MATTHEW 9:26 ” And the fame hereof went abroad into all that land.”
It can be so heart warming to become popular because of a success you achieved. Just look at that, from the Scripture we’ve read, Jesus wasn’t the one announcing what He did. He had just raised someone from the dead. It was such a big deal that people spread the news themselves.
I expected Jesus to stretch legs and just enjoy the accolades He will always get from that very region where the child was raised, rather, I checked before and after raising this child, He was still doing great things.
Jesus should be our perfect example. He couldn’t be distracted one bit. The death, burial and resurrection were the ultimate success for Him. He wasn’t distracted.
Do you have an idea what your ultimate success looks like? Well keep your focus on it. The things you have achieved now cannot be compared to what’s ahead. Don’t let the little success here and there deter you from your ultimate goal.
Saul got distracted in a bit. He got carried away by what he considered success, that he began to make a mistake that cost him the throne.
I pray you won’t lose your throne in Jesus name.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
JESUS DIDN’T LOSE HIS THRONE; I WON’T LOSE MINE. I REFUSE MEDIOCRITY IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
