WHERE ARE YOU?
This could be your perfect Monday Morning Motivation but I've got a little question for you.
Where are you?
Yes you, where are you at the moment? And I don't just mean your physical location but with everything going on with and around you entirely.
Remember the first man that was asked this same question? Yes, Adam. The same man whom we all came to be through his existence. God asked Adam this same question when He couldn't find him in the same spot where they used to just hang out and talk every day in the cool of the evening.
"Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid.” Genesis 3:9-10 (NKJV)
Now God wasn't asking Adam where he was because He didn't know or couldn't see him (of course, He is Omniscient) but He was asking because He could no longer meet Adam in the same mood and place of worship. Adam had allowed the things that didn't matter to take over the main purpose of why he was in the garden in the first place. And don't we all? How many times have we allowed inconsequential things to sway us from the things that matter in life?
Forgetting the reason we started or decided to take that journey in the first place. I know it could be difficult sometimes but we should not allow the cares and test of the times we are in to cause us to change from the original plan.
I also know that we are in a generation where anything goes, I mean, one will say this is 2020 or even 2021 in a few days but even that doesn't cut it. Values are gradually going down the drain and we all have suddenly resulted to "prayer". Please don't get me wrong, I believe in prayer and the efficacy of it. What I am simply saying here is that we need to focus more on the initial plan while praying and trusting God to help us through it, rather than leaving the ground fallow and then praying all through the harvest period for a bountiful harvest when in the first place you didn't even till the ground nor sow.
Even as the year comes to an end, may I remind you that it is time to redirect your focus to the initial plan.
The main reason you are here in the first place.
The reason you decided to bark on that journey.
Why are you here?
