June 29, 2019 Spirit Meat Daily Devotional : Topic - SEPARATION FOR THE BEST (1) - JEREMIAH 29:11



“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
 
God has the best for you in life. However, Satan will present to you many alternatives on the road of destiny to prevent and hinder you from the best of God. 
 
I told myself many years ago, “Lord, I’m not settling for the second-best. I will go for the best you have for me. Whatever the price is, I’m going to pay it.” There is a price attached to getting the best of God. An example is seen in the story of Daniel in Daniel 1:8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” That was separation for the best. That singular act led to favour and divine separation from a future untimely death.
 
The devil told Jesus, “You don’t have to go to the cross. Just bow down and worship me and I will give you...”, and Jesus said: “No, I want the best.” When Joseph was in Potiphar’s house, Potiphar’s wife came to him and asked him to be her acting husband. Joseph could have ended his journey as an acting husband, but Joseph knew what he saw; “I saw the throne and it doesn’t look like this place.” Will you wait for the best that God has for you? That is one of the greatest problems of humans: we tend to settle for less than God has for us. 
 
 
PRAYER: I will not settle for less than God has for me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
