[The Glory Unveiled]
But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. ( Genesis 21:12 )
In this life, we are confronted with so many choices, most of which do not count as far as eternal matters are concerned. But unfortunately, these irrelevant options seem to catch our attention more than those that matter. Jesus told Martha, that only one thing matters and Mary was preoccupied with that one (see Luke 10:41-42). Abraham, our father in the Lord was also at one point confronted with choices that would leave ripple effects in his future and his entire generation. In other words, he was confronted with a destiny defining choice. The promise of God was going to be activated through his son Isaac. But he had another son (another option) who was not the child of promise. And his offsprings (lineage) was not going to be reckoned through this other child, Ishmael. That not withstanding, Abraham couldn’t let go. The same challenge remains till today. We are held by things and circumstances that are not consequential in matters of destiny even though they may be important. Truth is, few things matter when it comes to making real impact. Let us listen to the voice of the Spirit when He whispers destiny changing ideas to us.
Prayer_Bead: Father, Omnipotent Lord, thank you for the preordained path you have set for me. Guide me through my daily decisions and choices to remain on this path of destiny. Thank you, in Jesus name.
