Brethren, as we keep aligning with what God wants from us. We have to get out of the status quo and let something happen to our spirits.

In a race, it is lost or won based on the last person that has the baton. No matter how fast the first and second person went, if the last person messes up, then the whole team lost.

We are the last generation holding the baton. The eyes of the patriarchs and matriarchs are on us because there are rewards, we will never receive if we do not run well.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

More than having the earthly mundane things, we must feel the heartbeat of heaven, align our hearts and let it become our daily pursuit.

Remember God doesn’t listen to our words but hearts. That’s why if we live for Him, He will give us everything.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 [14]For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; [15]and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Whom are you living for? When that marriage, career, relationship, business, etc. is not about you, then you will see the hand of God in your life like never before.

You don’t need to prove a point. Hannah never got her breakthrough until she got aligned; she was crying to God but God showed her, “I don’t need to prove a point”. (1Samuel 1)

Matthew 4:5-7 [5]Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, [6]and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”

Jesus knew that He was the son of God and He didn’t have to prove it. We do not need to do anything to prove a point; God is and He must be the reason.

Remember the cross is the center of our living. That means that at the cross, we lose all that is of us and remain with what is of Him.

This must be the priority behind everything that we do: whether you are a businessman, preacher, accountant, etc. We must reveal God in every place that He has placed us.

Take the example of Daniel and Joseph; they were politicians who lived for God. Until we are consumed by the desire, we shall continue to use our positions to flex our muscles and God is not glorified.

Acts 13:36 “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;

David handed over the baton to another generation.

There is a generation depending on us because we have the last baton; they are standing on the balcony of heaven cheering us up. Please, do not let them down.

Let us not get lost in enjoyment because we have a responsibility to reveal Jesus to this generation in whichever way and wherever God has placed us. Whether in music, career, marriage, etc., the driver must be Jesus.

John 2:17 “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.”

We must have our priority right, get lost in the kingdom, and the rest of the things shall be added unto us.

When the zeal for the Father’s house consumes you, God will provide and fight for you because He knows that it is not for personal ambition.

You can never lose following God. Focus on Jesus and He will never let you down.
