So many people can not commit to anything, whether it be a married, a job, a promise, a project or a business opportunity.
A lot of the time it is because they have wondering eyes and the grass, they think is always greener somewhere else. Satan used the lust of the flesh, the lust and of the eyes and the pride of life every day to get people trapped.
A statement my Pastor uses all the time is: “Sin will take you further than you were prepared to go, keep you longer than you were prepared to stay and cost you more than you were prepared to pay”.
Once you over step that mark, you give your enemy the permission to attack you and his whole purpose is to Kill You, Steal From You and Destroy You!
God’s boundaries that he sets in his word are for our protection, just as a parent would not let a little baby alone by themselves because they will destroy themselves, it’s the same way God will not let his born again believers alone by themselves.
So in order for the enemy to attack the believer he has to first remove them from their covering because knows and understands what Psalms 91 says:
Psa 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2 I will say of Jehovah, my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him I will trust.
Psa 91:3 Surely He will deliver you from the fowler's trap and from the destroying plague.
Psa 91:4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall trust. His truth shall be your shield, and buckler.
Psa 91:5 You shall not fear the terror by night; nor because of the arrow that flies by day;
Psa 91:6 nor for the plague that walks in darkness, of the destruction laying waste at noonday.
And it goes on and on.
Now Satan understands covering more than you or I because that was his job before he got kicked out of heaven:
Eze 28:13 You have been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the turquoise, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of your tambourines and of your flutes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.
Eze 28:14 You were the anointed cherub that covers, and I had put you in the holy height of God where you were; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Eze 28:15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.
So because he understands so much about cover he know who to get you out of yours, this is why as believer as believers, we need to walk in the spirit:
Gal 5:16 I say, then, Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.
Now if we walk in the spirit, we should demonstrate the fruits of the spirit and one of those fruits is long suffering or patience and another one is self control.
Satan tries to move you away from these two, to start getting you to start looking elsewhere.
So, if you are a married man, he may get a very attractive woman to start fluttering her eye lids at you, or if you are a married woman, he may get a male colleague to start showing you some extra attention being very considerate. Or he may create the environment where you are just job hopping all the time, always quitting and never holding down any position for too long. Or you’re in a business opportunity and you cannot commit to it because you are always looking for that bigger and better thing, which is more easier than the one you are doing. Or you set yourself a project to do some things with your kids, but at the time you set aside to do it something always comes up and eventually you hardly ever spend quality time with them and Satan gets in and allows someone or something else to bring up your kids.
The grass is not greener somewhere else and we need to understand this because if we do not, Satan will use our misunderstanding everyday to attack us.
When God called Abraham out of his home land into a new land and he took his nephew Lot with him, eventually their two tribes got too big and there was some in fighting going on, so they decided to split. Abraham gave Lot a choice which land to take and he choose the land that looked lush, even though the people of that land were wicked sinners before God (Gen 13). Over time because of the direction he chose, he ended up in Sodom and Gomorrah and at one time had to be rescued by his uncle when the cities were attacked by their enemies’. Another time he had to be rescued by God because God was going to destroy the cities because of their constant wickedness.
The Grass Is Not Greener!
Parallel Principals We are in an industry where there are many business opportunities available to a person to try. Now because of this if a person is not focused, it would be very easy to jump from one opportunity to another always looking for that holy grail.
The reality is, you need to work the opportunity you are in and if you do the things you are supposed to do and have some patience and self control, you will be successful.
It is always interesting talking to those people who opportunity hop, because the fault is never theirs, it is always, The Company or The Support or The Product or The Industry.
Well, if there were people being successful in these companies, it was neither of those things, the problem definitely lies within.
The Grass is never greener.
