2Ti 2:4 No man that goes to war, entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
Perhaps the reason many of us feel like we fail in our service to and for God, is because we do not realize we have been sent into battle.
If we had sent our young men into a battle to search and retrieve fallen or captive soldiers, how effective would they be if, while they were walking around in the enemy territory, they forgot where they were, and started taking breaks to play games or to go shopping?
We should be walking “in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time”(Col4:5), for ” the days are evil.”(Eph5:16)
Let us keep our eyes upon the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us trust Him completely for the results. Let us walk forward, in the calling we have each received from the Lord, trusting that He has a master plan and we fit into it perfectly!
May God bless you this day!
