The Light Daily Devotional – Don’t go too far
Focus: Don’t go too far
WORD FOR TODAY
Every counsel telling you not to go too far in every bid to serve the Lord or advance further into your glorious destiny under God is a counsel meant to bind your life to slavery. There is no man who chooses to be shallow in his relationship with God that will ever enter the rest prepared for him!
“So Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me.” (Exodus 8:28 NKJV)
The evil one in every facet of life will never stop you from engaging in any activities but will ensure that you are not deeply rooted in your relationship with God. There are several Pharaohs in the likes of job, career, personal ambition, addictions, desire for riches and accomplishment in various aspects of life that will not but always suggest that you should not go far in your pursuit to know God and have a cordial relationship with Him.
Pharaoh made this suggestion to the Israelites in a bid to keep them in captivity. Whatever limits your relationship with God keeps you in captivity of sin and the works of the flesh. The more you give yourself to God and are deeply rooted in His word the more you will be free from sin which tends to keep you a slave. This is not about being a fanatic but knowing God and living His life to fulfill His purpose on earth.
In the manner God wants you to be with Him, so also the devil wants you to be an instrument in his hands. Don’t fall for the deception of the evil one admonishing you not to go far. If you must have the life God wants to give you and get to your promised land; you must not only go far with Him but also work and walk with Him all the days of your life!
+ What is limiting your relationship with God?
Prayer: Blessed Holy Spirit, take me deeper still; till my life is wholly lost in Jesus and His perfect will in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The deeper and further your relationship is with God the more meaningful your life will be in God’s purpose!
Have a Stunning Tuesday!
