Make a Difference by Being Different


One of the most important tests we all face as we try to achieve what God has called us to do is cultural distraction. For instance -- The distraction of popularity -- If you are always worried about what other people think, you will be distracted from your destiny. The distraction of pleasure - It's OK to have fun and feel comfort, but if that's the primary focus of your life, you will never fulfill your destiny. The distraction of profits -- You can't serve both God and money. Making a profit can't be the primary focus of your life. The distraction of possessions -- Judging your success by how much stuff you own will keep you concerned about keeping things and maintaining things. The antidote to cultural distractions is this: you must dare to be different from others. If you are going to reach the dream God has given you, you must also dare to be different from others. Noah was different. God liked what he saw in Noah. Everything was headed toward destruction, but two words changed history -- "but Noah." That's the power of one person. That's the power of just one individual who chooses to be different.


“The Lord observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. So the Lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭6:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬


“But Noah found favor with the Lord.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬
