Determination is when you decide when and where you will terminate your journey.
You set the arrival date and place and you keep moving until you arrive.
Jesus demonstrated it in Luke 13:32 :
“Go and tell that fox for me, ‘Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work.’”
When the colluded powers sent their collaborating messengers to warn Jesus he was in trouble and that he was likely to be killed, his response was four-fold:
- I am doing works of mercy and deliverance.
- I will continue to do them until I am done. I will not be stopped. I will not be intimidated.
- I won't die here, but I will keep moving toward the place of my death.
But there is a third day coming and no matter what anyone does or thinks they can do to me, I will move past it toward that day ... and then, and only then, my work will be complete.
Following Jesus is an act of determination.
No termination until the place and time of determination.
Determine to do so and then, do so.
