Devotion: Use the narrow gate


Devotion: Matt 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate, because the gate is wide and the way is spacious that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. But the gate is narrow and the way is difficult that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Narrow path is the undesirable path to many and is taken by few but has a good ending. This is the path of righteousness. This path begins when you get born again. Unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom(John3:3). When you are born again, you are in the narrow path.

Narrow path would also mean doing certain good things which many don’t want to attempt. This may be working on projects,doing certain businesses, pursuing certain ideas and dreams that many don’t want to do. Be willing to do things many don’t want to do and you will be able to get results many have failed to get.

You are not alone.

You can’t do the same common things and expect different results. Try to do the uncommon and you will enjoy the uncommon results. There is a thin line between a foolish person and a great person. What people call foolish because it was never attempted by anyone, when it works they will call you great.

Even Jesus was considered a mad person by His family because he chose the route not familiar to many.Mark 3:20-21 ” Now Jesus went home, and a crowd gathered so that they were not able to eat. When his family heard this they went out to restrain him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” David too was considered out of his mind when he sacrificed to fight the giant Goliath. He did uncommon action and enjoyed uncommon results.

The reason people may think you are out of mind is because you are now doing something unusual. Nobody can be a great achiever, unless they do something unusual. The fact that it was never done before doesn’t mean it cannot be done. Common things bring common results. Refuse to be common. You are not common. Our God made each one to be unique.Psalm 139:14″ I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..”

Don’t allow your mind or people restrain you from doing what God wants to achieve through you. Remember:Be willing to do things many don’t want to do and you will be able to get results many have failed to get.

Confess aloud:
I am above and not below. I refuse to do same things everyday. I choose to do it differently according to the leading of the Spirit. I am a success now and always. I will do the unusual and will get unusual results. In Jesus Name. Amen. Join one of Dan Walusa whatsapp groups 0888326247
