Leaving Everything

R​eading the book, Driven by Eternity by John Bevere, I was drawn to “If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me]. Matt 16:24

I ask myself, what is the essence of setting goals or even dreaming about the things we want ?
No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him 2 Timothy 2:4

Am I a soldier? Oh yes look up Ephesians 6:18

You may say “For he will give us the desires of our heart” Ps 37:4 but if we indeed obey Him, then our desire would be to please Him 

Matt 7:21- we must do the will of God to make heaven.

The will of God is not morality. Anyone can be moral without knowing God or Jesus. It is obeying Him step by step.

Remember the moral rich man? Matt 9:21 Jesus told him to sell everything and come and follow Him. Do you catch it? Do you get it? The will of God is “different” for all of us

In all the happenings of life, it is important to know that The events of life don’t have much as power as what we make of it. It all lies in your hands
