The only thing that can stop you!

Alot of us journey through life feeling inadequate, not talented enough, not intelligent enough, not popular enough, not rich enough and not pretty enough but these are all lies, a smokescreen to distract you from what God thinks about you.

The bible says, “If God be for you, who can be against you?” If the devil can’t stop you or people around you can’t stop you then what is the only thing that can stop you from fulfilling your destiny in life? Let’s look to King David for the answer.

In 1 Samuel 16 David was a teenager. He was the youngest, smallest and most forgotten of his brothers but David had something his other brothers didn’t have. He had a heart after God.

Contrast David with Saul and you discover that Saul was head & shoulders above other people. He came from good heritage and was a trained warrior yet God rejected Saul because Saul had something wrong in his heart. His heart was disobedient, bitter, jealous and afraid.

The only thing that can stop you is your HEART! Lack of talent can’t stop you, nor lack of connections, the devil can’t stop you, nor people’s comments about you. The only thing that can stop you is your heart. God says to Samuel in v7 “Do not look at his appearance or on the height of his stature because i have rejected him for the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart.”

In the natural your heart is the epicentre of your body. The same goes for your heart in the spirit realm. Proverbs 4:23 says “Guard your heart for out of it flow the springs (issues) of life.” Your heart is the true measure of your potential. Guard it, nurture it, allow God to shape it and literally nothing will stop you from fulfilling your destiny.

Lead the Change!

    Ever so True! And when we pray for Revival its awesome – as Revival begins in our own hearts! Ouch! But its awesome whom we are now and who we become in Christ! I know I struggle in these areas of the heart and keeping it/guarding it/from attack and the key also to guarding it is remembering who we are in Christ! Great Insight Thanks!

  2. Excellent stuff Corey. You’re a good man with a good heart and I appreciate you encouraging others in guarding their own hearts. As a Chruch, may we become more intimate with Jesus (heart) and as a result, may we become more like Him (character). Also may we be ones whose focus is on examining and changing our hearts rather than focusing on trying to change everyone else. As the Psalmist said, “Search me oh God” and “Change my heart”. Love ya buddy!
