Don't Wait for People to Affirm You

God will confirm your decision to serve Him. If that's running for public office or leaving a "safe" but dead-end job to pursue a more purposeful and meaning position though the pay may be less.

Pay in this world is temporary. Many people stay for the pay selling out for temporary gain and satisfaction - only to look back when the time has long past and ask the question asked by so many when time is running out and they know it's time to leave time and transition into eternity... the two-word question... "What if?" Followed by the four-word answer. "I wish I had."

One of Satan's primary purposes is to keep you from realizing the purpose for which God wrapped your spirit in flesh and sent you here.

It wasn't just to pay bills and die. Take an annual two-week vacation, buy or lease a nice car every three years and pay on a house for 30, retire, travel and die. No! If you know God has confirmed a decision you've made to move forward... move! He will provide. Otherwise, the Adversary will use someone you know and trust to talk you right out of what you know in your heart God has purposed you to do.

He used Peter to try and talk Jesus out of going to the cross - the very purpose for which Jesus came. And he will use the same tactic against you and me. What if Jesus had not gone to the cross? That was His purpose for being and God's plan to save us all.

We have not been purposed for that but we each have an important task God needs us to do. Don't wait for people to affirm in your mind what God has already confirmed in your heart!
