A ROADBLOCK TO #MISSIONALLIVING: Setting Your Mind On The Things Of Men & Not On The Things Of God

“Jesus turned around and looked at his disciples, then reprimanded Peter.  ‘  Get away from me, Satan!’ he said.  ‘You are seeing things merely from a  human point of view,not from God’s.”  Mark 8:33 (NLT)
God’s mission and plan was to take Jesus to the cross but Peter’s plan was to keep Christ safe and from harm.  How often do our thoughts, plans, ideas or just personal opinions are in direct opposition from that of God’s and His will?  It’s not because we are deliberately trying to rebel against God but yet as we see with Peter even our best intentions can be totally opposite of what God is doing!
Listen to what the Bible says,
There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”  (Proverbs 14:12 NAS)
Not everything that we think is “right” is actually “right” with God and because of that we need to seriously seek God for Him to reveal to us what is right and what he is doing!  Wouldn’t it be horrible to be fervently fighting for a particular position only to find out that you were fighting against God?
