Are You Pushing to Get to Destination?
I went to a bank a few months ago. As I was about to enter the hall, a lady ran ahead of me and pushed me away, so that she could quickly join the long queue before me.
I did not say anything.
She thought I will join behind her, but I was actually not there to withdraw but to deposit.
So I walked to the deposit machine. I was the only one there and no single person in the queue. After I finished depositing and I was about to leave the hall, the lady came out from the queue and apologized for pushing me.
With a smile of apology, she said, ‘I am sorry Sir for pushing you. I thought you were coming to the queue’. I just smiled and told her not to bother and that it’s no big deal.
Since then, the lesson in this story kept coming to my mind and I felt I should share it for us all to learn from it.
Friends, who are you ‘pushing’ away and trying to outrun in the race of destiny, relationship, business, ministry, career, etc?
You are probably thinking you are going to the same ‘queue’ (destination) unknown to you that, though your path may look alike, your destinations are different!
How many people have had to say ‘sorry’ to those they pushed aside, pushed away, push down when they finally realized that that person was not actually going to the ‘withdrawal machine’ they were running to.
Are you reading this and you are pushing people away here and thereby slandering them, hindering their progress, blocking their promotion, spoiling their good names through lies and rumour all in a bid to ‘get there’ before them?
I challenge you today, to take it easy. You might not be going to the same destination. It might surprise you later that, with all your pushing, they may still leave you on the ‘queue’ of destiny and become successful before you. Maybe you feel that people in your office, ministry, business, etc are pushing you away so that they can get ahead of you. Don’t worry, God will use your case to prove to them that, ‘it is not of him who runs, but of the Lord that shows mercy…’ (Romans 9:16). He will show you mercy and give you an overtaking speed and those who are pushing you here and there will later come to tell you they are sorry.
Please don’t push anyone. You might meet on the same path, but you might not be going to the same ‘machine’ (destination).

Meditation: So then it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy. – Roman 9:16 [KJV]
You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
