DAY 16 |
Matthew 19:16-22 (NKJV)
20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept [d]from my youth. What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
It’s a choice to move into a prosperous life… In this Scripture, the Rich Young Ruler was not able to leave the comfort of what he had built to choose the unknown certainty that following Jesus will bring. Following Jesus on our Path of purpose reaps greater returns than what we leave behind.
This choice requires you to step out of the old and grab hold of something bigger than yourself. To follow Christ is to be totally dependent on Him. God will keep you and make all your ways successful. It’s a daily decision to walk with God outside of your familiar.
CHALLENGE, PRAYER OR FAST | Even though you choose God in salvation, what’s next? God calls us from our old success to higher levels and dimensions. Challenge yourself, pray and fast to see what your next step towards the kingdom level/dimension God is bringing you to.
