JACQUIE HOOD MARTIN: You Can’t Have It Both Ways

What good is it for a person if they gain the whole world, yet forfeits their soul?” Matthew 16:26a

There comes a time when we have to make a decision about what we are going to do in life or about a given situation. We live in a manner that has no focus, no direction, and no stick-to-it-ness. Think about it. Are you running after things that are possibly not attainable? Do you have your hands in everything and seemingly do not have a grasp on anything?

As we grow in our faith and seek the direction and guidance of God, we are better able to reach for those things that are meant to be ours. When we are continually searching, yet never really settling in to where and what we are destined to be, we miss out on the real joy of living a fulfilled life. Are you tired of being aimless? Are you losing yourself in your vain ambitions? Have you tired yourself of gaining partial happiness, but still do not have complete joy, restoration, and victory?

Today, you are able to end your quest right now. You don’t have to try to hold on to one thing before you have the true thing with which the Lord wants to bless you. It is time to let go of things that are holding you back so you can move forward. God wants you to have peace and spiritual prosperity (1 John 3). Each day in your walk with Him, He will show you how to achieve your dreams. And as you seek the Lord, you will find that you do have it all.
