The Light Daily Devotional –  Where Others Fail

Focus: Where Others Fail


There is no doubt that some people will choose to do things that are contrary to God’s will in every aspect of life. While others set a bad example, you must resolve in your heart to do what is good according to God’s will!

Scriptural Reference

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV

In the land of the living, there is a reward for every action. A man’s mind can become weary of doing what is good and right, especially when every model or example of a man presented to him is doing what is wrong. When others choose to fail God, you are expected to renew your mind to impress Him.

The Bible states unequivocally that whoever knows the right thing to do but fails to do it sins (James 4:17). Some men present themselves to embezzle funds, sow seeds of discord and hatred, do evil, inflict pain on others, obstruct others’ progress, bemoan other people’s progress, engage in premarital or extramarital sex, and so on. 

When you see people doing things that are against God’s will, you must seek God’s help to avoid doing the same. Allow Christ’s attributes to manifest in your life. Have a purposed heart, like Daniel, to obey God at all times. Remember that whether or not you appear to be facing the consequences of your actions, God said, “My reward is with me.”

+ What is your disposition to the failure of men to do God’s will?

Lord! I receive the grace to do your will come what may in Jesus’ name. Amen! 

Emphasis: You must never give up doing what is good and right under God even when others are doing what is wrong!

Have an Impressive Friday!
