Another very dangerous destiny killer is ‘the love of money’. One thing that you must realise from the get-go is that having a lot of money is not a God-given purpose. Being in a position where you are in control of wealth is equally not an end in itself. It is what you do with the resources God has put in your care that will determine if you will fulfill your destiny. Joseph said his destiny was to keep people alive when the time of famine came. Becoming the Prime minister of Egypt and being in control of the wealth of the nation were merely the means God used to achieve His purpose for Joseph.
From our Bible reading for today, it is evident that whenever you hold a grudge against anyone, God will not forgive you of your wrongs. Isn’t that serious? Come to think of it, why would someone offend you, and you end up being punished because of the person. It doesn’t add up. The fact remains that a person holding a grudge can be likened to the one consuming poison, yet expecting another fellow to die in his/ her stead. When you hold a grudge against anyone, you are gradually killing yourself. While the fellow lives in peace, you would keep hurting yourself by being in a bad mood whenever you see him/her or remember what was done against you.
The ninth step you should take to become a mountain-top believer is to obey God unquestioningly, promptly and completely. When your obedience is complete, your total deliverance, restoration and blessings will manifest. The problem with many believers today has its root in their partial obedience. They cling to rebellion and self-will in some areas and obey God in others. Partial obedience means that God is not completely Lord over your life and affairs. It means you have not made Him your first and all in all. You must turn a new leaf today if you want to be a mountain top believer.
