Getting Out of God’s Way

by Chip Brogden

September 16

“Cast out this slave woman with her son, for
the son of this slave woman shall not be heir with my son Isaac.”

Often the greatest hindrance to the best is the good. The greatest hindrance to Isaac is Ishmael.

There are many good things we can create, many good things we can do. But only one thing is needed (Luke 10:42). We have to discover the “one thing,” and we only discover it when we are seated at the feet of Jesus. When we are only motivated by what JESUS needs, not what MAN needs and not what we think WE need, then we are on the path of continual and perpetual blessing.
