Lines And Circles

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

A curved line is moving in more than one direction at once. After a while, it will curve back on itself and make some kind of a circle. Making circles is fine when it comes to geometry, but it’s not fine when it comes to your life. When you waver back and forth between God and the world you’re moving in two directions at once. You’re going through life double-minded. Thus, the journey of your life becomes curved. And that means you’ll end up eventually curving right back to where you were before – in a circle, going nowhere. So do you want your life to end up going nowhere, or would you rather have your life go somewhere – and making a difference? Then you have to stop going in two directions. You have to choose to go in only one. A straight line goes in one direction. Thus a straight line is the only one that goes somewhere in God. So choose the Lord with all your heart, live all out, 100%, single-minded, no compromise, and on fire for God – that’s when you’ll start going places!

Today’s Mission – Today, put away all wavering and double mindedness – and choose the Lord with all your heart. Live single-minded and on fire for God.

Look beyond the blessing!

Psalms 3:8 Salvation belongs to the Lord. Your blessing is upon Your people.

Yeshua (Jesus) told His disciples to go into the deep waters and let down their nets for fish. When they did, their nets were filled up with fish to the point of breaking. Being fishermen and businessmen, they may have been tempted to start doing business. I mean, think how much they could make!

But God had a different purpose. The disciples’ occupation as fishermen was just a vehicle for God to demonstrate His great power and love. He wasn’t blessing them with fish so that they would get excited about fishing — He was blessing them with fish so that they could get their eyes off their fishing and on to the greater call He had for them! Thankfully, they left the fishing business and went off with the Lord to do great and mighty things.

Too many of us are wrapped up in fish. We seek the Lord for His blessings, prosperity, and success. But true discipleship is focusing not on the blessings of the Lord, but on the Lord of the blessings!

We can rejoice in our blessings, but let’s not dwell on them! Let’s set our eyes on the Lord and the calling He has for us. When He sees that we have pure and willing hearts, He will be faithful to use us to accomplish His glorious plan!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
