He Pushed Me Away

He Pushed Me Away

Sunday 21st November 2021 Devotion
Scripture:- Romans 9:16-33
Topic:- He Pushed Me Away

By Dr. Obafemi Hamzat [Deputy Governor Of Lagos State]

Many years ago, I went to the BANK on Wednesday morning as I was about to enter the hall, a man ran ahead of me and pushed me away so he could quickly join the long queue before I will get to the queue.

I did not say anything, he thought I will queue up behind him but I was actually not there to withdraw, I went to deposit.

So I walked to the deposit teller and I was the only one there. No single person was in the queue.

When I finished depositing, I was about to leave the hall, when this man came from the queue and apologized to me for pushing me away from the line.

With a “sorry smile on his face,” he said: I am very sorry for pushing you away, I thought you were coming to the queue to withdraw.

I smiled and told him not to bother that it’s not a big deal.

Friends believe me I learned a big lesson from that incident.

Who are you ‘pushing’ away and trying to outrun in the race of destiny, relationship, business, ministry, career, marriage, political position or appointment, etc?

How many People have you pushed aside, pushed away, or pushed down in this life?

Are you among those that destroy people through pushing?

By slandering them, hindering their progress, blocking their promotion, lying, backstabbing, condemning them before their helpers, backbiting, discriminating, and spoiling their good names either through lies or rumor, all in a bid to ‘get there before them.

I challenge you today to take it easy because you might not be going to the same destination.

Unknown to you, the path may look alike but your destinations are different.

It might surprise you later that, with all the pushing away you are doing or planning to do, they may still leave you on the ‘queue’ of destiny and go ahead of you.

Finally, Has anyone ever pushed you away, aside, or down in your school, office, ministry, business, marriage, political platform, social media, or in religious societies?

Are they trying to push you away or have they pushed you away already so that they can get ahead of you?

Don’t worry, God will use your case to prove to them that.

It is not of him who runs, but of the Lord that shows mercy.

He will show you mercy and give you an overtaking speed and those who are pushing you here and there will later come and tell you they are sorry.

Beloved Brethren, Please push nobody because you might not be heading to the same destination.

Borrow wisdom from a friend and Take life easy.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to wait patiently for Your divine appointment time for my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
