AVOID THE ARRIVAL MINDSET
– Philippians 3:13
Don’t leave those things that make you attractive to God. The mistake that most people make is that as soon as they begin to see the hand of God in their lives, they start moving away from what brought that divine commitment. Avoid the celebration and arrival mindset.
Peradventure you usually deposit seven hours every weekend in intimacy and fellowship with God; you study the word of God and pray. The fruits of that have begun to show and now you cannot even get one hour to pray or study the word. That is a dangerous place to be. Never lose the things that make you attractive to God for any reason.
Your intimacy with the Lord makes you attractive to God, don’t leave it. It is out of intimacy that we have service that is acceptable. Are you a Christian that is satisfied with instruction-based relationship with God or with face to face relationship with Him? God is looking for face to face relationship with Himself. We are sons, not servants. We are not strangers, we are the children of the Father and we must never be satisfied until we have fellowshipped with Him.
Don’t have a celebration or arrival mindset. You know that is part of the spirit of the land in our country, Nigeria. A man is just coming up in life; he made a few achievements in career or in politics and the next thing is to give him a chieftaincy title. Don’t allow that spirit to come into the church. Apostle Paul said, “…forgetting those things that are behind, and reaching forth unto those things that are before.”
PRAYER: I will not lose the things that make me attractive to God. Amen.
