DAY 250 OF 365 IN 2021
LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
Luke 6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
Let’s not deceive ourselves by thinking that results just come. In fact, ‘No one just obtains results, not even the ones s we might think happen by chance. Anyone with results to show will always be found to have engaged something or encountered someone. The field of endeavour does not matter.
Whether it is a surgeon with gifted hands, a writer with intricate storytelling ability, an athlete at the top of their game, or a Minister of the Gospel operating with a higher dimension of authority and power; all these would have engaged something. They would have engaged a body of knowledge, a community of people, a regimen of activity or as Jesus in today’s Gospel, an intimate encounter with God the Father.
We might look at the lives of others and see just the fruits of their engagements, however to have any chance at reproducing similar results in our own world, we ought to be prepared to look past the visible results towards their encounters behind the scenes.
You need to look past the fruits if you want to reproduce the results.
