"YOUR PASTOR DETERMINES YOUR PASTURE"
These were the words the Holy Spirit dropped into my mind as I was traveling somewhere yesterday.
It happened the bus I entered was trailing behind a trailer on the express way.Other cars were just passing us by as I watched the driver trying frantically to overtake the vehicle but was not given a chance.
I started pondering on this scene before I heard those words.It came so strong that I asked Him to explain.(though the bus overtook later after wasting much time though)
"YOUR PASTOR DETERMINES YOUR PASTURE.BY THAT I MEAN YOUR PACE IN LIFE IS DETERMINED BY YOUR MENTOR.WHAT YOU AIM FOR AND WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH ARE DETERMINED BY WHO IS LEADING YOU.
SO MANY BELIEVERS ARE STUCK IN LIFE BECAUSE THEIR LEADERS ARE ALSO STUCK.SINCE THE LEADERS HAVE NO SENSE OF DIRECTION WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM THE FOLLOWERS?LIKE LEADERS LIKE FOLLOWERS.
WHEN YOU ARE TRAILING BEHIND A SLOW LEADER YOUR LIFE WILL MOVE ON A SLOW PACE AND YOUR ACHIEVEMENT WILL BE SLOW AND YOU WILL WASTE MUCH TIME THERE.
AS YOU SEE OTHER VEHICLES MOVING FAST PAST YOUR'S AND YOUR DRIVER IS BEING CAREFUL OF OVERTAKING FOR FEAR OF ACCIDENT,SO IT IS IN LIFE ALSO.NO ONE WILL GIVE YOU A CHANCE.THOSE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY WANT IN LIFE WILL ALWAYS BE HIGH-FLIERS.
NOTICE YOUR BUS HAS THE CAPACITY TO OVERTAKE BUT IS BEEN HINDERED BY THE TRAILER AND BY HIGH SPEED MOVING VEHICLES.THERE ARE FOLLOWERS WHO HAVE MORE DRIVE THAN THEIR LEADERS BUT ARE AFRAID OF OVERTAKING.SUCH WILL WASTE THEIR YEARS IN NOTHING.
SOME WHO ARE FOLLOWING LEADERS WHO HAVE NO DRIVE.YOU MUST BE READY TO MOVE AWAY FROM FOLLOWING SUCH BECAUSE THEY WILL SLOW YOUR LIFE AND DESTINY DOWN AND WASTE YOUR PRECIOUS TIME IN ACHIEVING NEXT TO NOTHING.
AS YOUR BUS CAN'T SEE THE FRONT BECAUSE OF THE MASSIVE SIZE OF THE TRAILER SO ALSO MANY HAVE ALLOWED THEIR LEADERS TO CLOUD THEIR FORESIGHT WITH ERRORS AND MISGUIDING UNBIBLICAL PRINCIPLES.
AS YOU SEE YOUR DRIVER FEELING UNEASY AND TRYING FRANTICALLY TO OVERTAKE THE TRAILER SO SHOULD ANYONE WHO IS FOLLOWING SUCH LEADERS BECOME.SUCH MUST BECOME DISTURBED BECAUSE TIME IS NO ONE'S FRIEND AND THERE ARE MANY THINGS TO ACHIEVE IN LIFE.
YOUR BUS FINALLY SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY AND OVERTOOK IT.SO MUST PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW SUCH LEADERS OVERTAKE AND MOVE UNTO NEW HORIZONS.LOOK FOR LEADERS WHO HAVE A SENSE OF DIRECTION AND MOVE WITH SUCH.IT WILL DETERMINE YOUR PASTURE(ACHIEVEMENT)"
So,there you have it.Don't allow any shortsighted leader waste divine investment in your life.If you are fulfilled in a place,put side fear and religious mentality,seek for the higher life in Christ.
Let chickens move with chickens and let the eagles look for their companions.I am not telling you to rebel against poor misguided leadership but am challenging you not to mortgaged your destiny there.
CHANGE THAT LEADER TO CHANGE YOUR LADDER.YOUR LADDER DETERMINES YOUR ALTITUDE.
In all BE GUIDED BY WISDOM AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD.
