SUNDAY, DECEMBER 12
Scripture: Isaiah 14:13, Genesis 12:2
In level three we find the enemy saying, “…I will also sit on the mount of the congregation.” I am going to choose my path of development and reject anything I do not like. In number three God says, I am the one who is going to bless you. You do not get to choose your path of development. I choose it. You have to submit to My developmental path. Jesus told Peter at the end of his life, somebody else will take you by the hand and lead you to a place you do not want to go—John 21:18. Jesus prophesied about Peter’s death. There is often a lot to object to on God’s preparational path! God has a path that many of us probably will not like. In Galatians 1 Paul talks about – 14 years in the desert. I am sure Paul would have bypassed Arabia if he could have, but God’s plan often takes us to places we would not choose. Are we willing to say yes to the Lord in the hard places?
