Gotcha's Detours: Flitting Around
Don't move around from home to home. Stay in one place, eating and drinking what they provide.
Luke 10:7 (NLT)
All we like sheep have gone astray;

We have turned, every one, to his own way;

And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:6 (NKJV)
Your Word is a Lamp to guide my feet and a Light for my path.
Psalm 119:105 (NLT)
Traveling to nations for God is good, but so is tending to your neighborhood, or godly management of just one home.

Speaking in stadiums for God is good, but so is tending to a small church, or the loving guidance of just one soul.

What's not good? Flitting around aimlessly: date to date, job to job or place to place. It's called the 'The Grass Is Greener' syndrome, where we're always looking for the next thrill.

Because flitterers are not finishers, and our Boss, the King, is a Finisher.

'Jesus said, 'It is finished.' With that, He bowed His Head and gave up His Spirit' (John 19:30, NIV).

Therein, Jesus is 'The Author and Finisher of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2, KJV).


1) Allow God (not man) to direct your path, and don't expect to know the entire course.

2) Butterflies flit. Saints focus and finish to reach an honorable conclusion.

3) Before our Lord's big moves or decisions, He withdrew and spent prayer time with God.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
