Don't Draw Back

Acts 13:13 Paul and the others left Paphos and sailed to Perga in Pamphylia. But John left them and
went back to Jerusalem.
When I talk about drawing back even tears roll down my face. In our lives, we have people like John
mark that is to say as ministry or business intensifies, they get scared and want to excuse themselves in a critical time.
John mark is seeing whatever is going on in his camp but he wants to go to Jerusalem. A lesson is going on and some guy is running to the bathroom. It's a sign of immaturity and it's also a sign that whatever you are apart of is not priority, if you can excuse yourself in the time when you needed most.
A Christian should not be deceived God is not mocked everyone will reap what they sow.
2 Corinthians 4:1-2 God has been kind enough to trust us with this work. That's why we never give up. We don't do shameful things that must be kept secret. And we don't try to fool anyone or twist God's
message around. God is our witness that we speak only the truth, so others will be sure that we can be trusted.
It's sad if God will avail his grace and you take it lightly.
Hebrews 10:37-39 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the
just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. God does not delight in men who draw back.
Exodus 13:17-18 When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them along the main road
that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the shortest route to the Promised Land.
God said, "If the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt." So God led them in a roundabout way through the wilderness toward the Red Sea. Thus the Israelite's left Egypt like an army ready for battle.
As much as they where set free, they were not yet free because of fear in their hearts. God observing
this decided for them to pass through a longer route.
Many have delayed at one level and this is the reason why they are still at one level, they have a lot of
fear so the journey of the success will take long because as they try to move they yield to fear and
always pull out. You can't do much with such people. The only thing you can do is pray for them grace to run the race .
Lord please help our hearts not faint and to run with the grace that you have availed to accomplish this race.
