Sometimes, many people or everyone wish they can find a shorter way to their destination in life. Whether they are travelling or are planning to achive something in life but forget that all ways that leads to their destination is not the path to their destination. Everything in life is in two faces. There is good and bad, day and night, time to be born and time to die, time to plant and time to harvest.
In this contemporary world that we are now, people are desperate to archive their dreams whether its God’s plan for them or not. People especially the youths don’t want to do the jobs. They don’t want to get that genuine experience that will make the story behind their glory something to be proud of. Though some since they have lost every iota of conscience in them as well the fear of God feel proud on how they achieve their success when it came in the wrong way. Shortcuts are now the order of the day.
True to be said, even God knew the dangers associated with following through a shortcut and for that, he took the children of Israel through the desert when there is a shorter way that leads to the promise land. You can check out the book of Exodus 13v17 as a reference for what I said. What God saw in the midst of the of the shorter way that led through Philistines, was war and he knew this will make the children of Israel run back to where God has delivered them from. Beloved do you know the shortcut you want to take so as to become that fealty rich man/woman might be the last of you? If peradventure you scaled through the wars in the midst of this shortcut that you are following that the Lord is not telling you to, do you think you are going to enjoy the tidings for long? This is a question we should ask ourselves.
Now don’t get me wrong. The shortcuts I’m referring to here is not doing the work and want to reap the profits where you did not sow
Remember, the hands that stays idle is the hand the devils borrows to carry out his mission. Find something doing, don’t try cutting corners just to get there quick, do the work, get the genuine experience and let the story behind your glory real as you will be sharing it with others.
