SMS Message - ACCEPTING THAT CHALLENGES ARE ATTACHED TO PURPOSE IN LIFE AND FACING IT IS WHAT BRINGS FULFILMENT ACTS 21:10-14. DON'T ABANDON PURPOSE FOR CHALLENGES. FACE IT. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE ABOVE SCRIPTURES SENT A MESSAGE TO PAUL IN ADVANCE ABOUT THE CHALLENGES HE WILL FACE WHEN ON THE MISSIONARY ASSIGNMENT WHICH HE WILL EMBARK UPON LATER TO JERUSALEM (VS 10-11). AND HOW HIS COLLEAGUES WERE PLEADING WITH HIM NOT TO GO UP TO JERUSALEM BECAUSE OF THIS MESSAGE (VS 12). BUT LOOK AT PAUL’S RESPONSE IN VERSE 13 “WHY ARE YOU WEEPING AND BREAKING MY HEART? I AM READY NOT ONLY TO BE BOUND, BUT ALSO TO DIE IN JERUSALEM FOR THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS.” HOW MANY OF US ARE PREPARED TO TAKE THIS KIND OF STAND CONCERNING THE FULFILMENT OF OUR PURPOSE OF EXISTENCE? THE BIBLE SAYS IN VERSE 14 THAT “WHEN HE WOULD NOT BE DISSUADED, WE GAVE UP AND SAID THE LORD’S WILL BE DONE”. THIS IS A TWO-EDGED MESSAGE; ONE FOR ALL THOSE WHO KNOW THEY HAVE PURPOSE TO PURSUE AND FULFIL, DON’T ALLOW PEOPLE AROUND TO USE THE DIFFICULTIES IN LIFE TO DISCOURAGE YOU; TWO, FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE ALWAYS TOO QUICK TO ANALYSE ISSUES, STOP DISCOURAGING MEN WHO ARE PREPARED TO PURSUE THEIR PURPOSE IN LIFE.
