Friday, 22nd October 2021: Don’t drive your destiny helpers away!

Scripture Reading: Acts 15:37-39
And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark. But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia and went not with them to work. And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus

Reflections: Apart from ensuring that Paul got accepted into apostlehood at the time that the church found it very difficult to take him, Barnabas joined Paul in his missionary journeys and helped him to propagate the gospel. Along the line, another destiny helper, John Mark, joined Paul. The trio became a force that blazed a missionary path, winning many to Christ. However, one day the inevitable happened. A heated argument ensued between Paul and Barnabas over John Mark. The dispute became so sharp and severe that they parted from each other. Paul thus lost the companionship and support of two great destiny helpers. In a sense, he had driven them away through the intense displeasure he had nursed against John Mark for deserting them in one of their trips and his refusal to yield to the plea of Barnabas to take John Mark back. A key lesson we can derive from this story is that sometimes in life, your flesh can lead you to drive away your destiny helpers. It is prudent, therefore, to pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you in your interactions with destiny helpers so you do not end up driving them away!

Prayers: Dear Lord, please grant me the enablement to keep connected to my destiny helpers.

Confession: I remain connected to my destiny helpers!
