We are constantly being pulled in multiple different directions. Life happens at warp speed and we simply seem to just go with the flow. In an attempt to satisfy many, we often walk down many paths and look many directions. However, let me challenge you to do something that God has challenged me to do:
Look one direction
If God has called you to one specific thing – go after it. Be committed to it. Follow it closely. Do whatever it takes, however long it takes. But as you do so, look only in that direction. Your purpose is to honor God in everything you do. You can only do that if you look in the one direction He’s called you to.
That direction for you could be a spouse. It could be a job. It could be a prayer for healing. It could be a dream. It could be a promise that God has given you for your life. Whatever it is, follow in that one direction.
The enemy will try to do all he can to get you off that track. Weariness, lack of patience, and other appealing and some-what worthy directions will try to pull you off as well. However, take hold in this:
“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion” – Philippians 1:6
“For at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” – Galatians 6:9
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint” – Isaiah 40:31
Look one direction. Stay the course. Do whatever it takes. I guarantee that God will come through for you and that it will be well worth the wait.
