The first reason for failure is Lust: The Israelites set their heart on evil things. They adjusted their values upon leaving Egypt. They were always looking back (Exodus 16:1-3). Even though they were still there. (Warning in Colossians 3: 1-3). One of the believer’s most significant challenges today is living “living in the world like the world” instead of being “in the world but not of the world.” We should be trusting God’s word and not the world. We should not seek to be famous or attain worldly fame but godly success according to His word. Where ever we go or whatever we do should be to fulfill God’s will, not to satisfy our lust and desires. “Love gives lust takes”; we should never be driven by what we can get from man, society, and the world but rather by what we can give GOD. Love and lust can both equally drive a ministry. Only one can please God. That’s love. Ask yourself these questions how many times has lust broken marriages, destroyed ministries, and aborted callings? Do you love the Word, or are you lusting after the world? “God changes not”.
