“…..for thus says the Lord, God of Israel, ‘There are devoted things in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted things from among you.’”
Have you felt lately that no matter how hard you try there is an obstacle that you just seem to get past? Is there something you know you are called to do but you just can’t seem to get there? Maybe the thing that is holding you back from all that God has for you is that “devoted thing” you won’t let go of!
There are times in all of our lives that we realize that there is something holding us back and a lot of times it is that tight grip we have on something that means maybe just a little too much to us. Your “devoted thing” could be money, or comfort, it could be tv shows you are watching that you know Jesus wouldn’t sit through, are there movies and books you allow your children to read that you get a little twinge of “uncomfortable” about, are you having an affair? What is your devoted thing? It could be something big or it could be something little, but whatever it is stop letting it hold you back from God’s best!
If God is asking you to give something up, it is because His plan is better! Let it go! Nothing in this world is worth missing out on God’s best! Give it all to Him, no matter what it is and trust Him! God’s way is always best! His way is always higher, but you need to trust Him that you can let that thing go because the best is yet to come!
Wherever you go…. go there with all your heart!
