“Drive and Determination”

"Drive and Determination"
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.
Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International

Nothing in life comes easy.  You have
to have drive and determination.
Sometimes you have to fight even when
you have no energy.  There are too
many people with big dreams and no
drive.  You have to go beyond how
you feel- that's the only way you're
going to get things done.
All of the great leaders of the Bible had drive and Joshua is a great example.  
God knew he had the passion to being the Israelites to the Promised Land.

Joshua 1:1-9 (NIV)
After the death of Moses the servant
of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua
son of Nun, Moses' aide: "Moses, my
servant is dead. Now then, you and
all these people, get ready to cross
the Jordan River into the land I am
about to give them- to the Israelites.
I will give you every place where you
set foot, as I promised Moses...
No one will be able to stand
up against you all the days of your
life. As I was with Moses, so will
I be with you; I will never leave you
nor forsake you. Be strong and
courageous, because you will lead these
people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them...
Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you
wherever you go."
God is basically saying to Joshua: "Don't be scared.  I've got your back!"
As the saying goes, Many are called, but few are chosen.
Something to think about:  Challenging times should make you stronger, not weaker.
Do you know who you are? If you're looking for people to like you, you'll never
get anywhere. You can't have a pity party.  When you're believing God for
something, you can't afford to get discouraged.  You have to know God is on your
side!  It takes drive and determination to have faith.  Who you are, determines
what God can do through you!  There are certain things God will allow to happen
to build your faith.  He knows you because He made you.  Therefore, the Lord
won't allow you to face anything you can't overcome!
