Note this: On your journey to becoming, you’ll find yourself alone most of the time but if you persist and succeed, you might have to beg people to leave you alone.

Mark 1:13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him.

While Jesus was in the wilderness and was building himself so that he can be excellent enough to be whom He is supposed to be there were no disciples, no “fans” or followers, no accolades, no one to share food or drink with him, no friends, no comfort. Just Him, God and the vision and mission. Why do you expect anyone to be there for you? Why do you feel like giving up because you feel like no one is supporting you on your journey?

Try to imagine the conditions Jesus found Himself in. Have you tried to picture or imagine what a wilderness experience would feel like? Just try to imagine it, I’ll be waiting.

Nobody pays for a job not yet done. Nobody celebrates a nobody. Accolades don’t go to those who give up. If you persist, you just might become but if you give up you can be certain you’d never become.

Notice what happened after Jesus came out of the wilderness?

  • Everyone was willing to follow him, He didn’t need to ask or ask twice.

Mark 1:17 Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”
Mark 1:18 They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

Nobody knows the sacrifices and pain Jesus had to go through to be Christ but we celebrate and announce His results and life. Nobody was with Jesus during His becoming process, during His seeding process.

Surely Jesus must have felt lonely at some point and even contemplated giving up like when He asked that the cup should pass over Him in Matthew 26:39 but still He didn’t give up, and His works announced Him

He had no business running around looking for people to believe in Him or announce Him. Stay and keep building. No one overlooks excellence.

Don’t stop yet! Keep going…
