Hi guys so glad to finally get to meet you, I want to thank my sister and friend Yinka for having me here its really a privilege.
After a period of thought and reflection, I’ve been able to come up with a topic for my post today, I wanted to be very practical such that everything I say here can be applied in our day to day lives.
I believe everyone was put on this earth for a reason, and that reason is usually greater than we can imagine, its usually so big that we need God in order to accomplish it. But the problem is that most people settle for LESS.
Ever heard the phrase “I cannot come and kill myself”?
I see that phrase as a sign of disbelief in the power of God
1cor 2: 9 (NIV)
“No eye has seen,
No ear has heard
No mind has conceived
What God has prepared for those who love him”
But this is what verse 10 says
“But God has revealed it to us by his spirit.
The spirit searches all things even the deep things of God”
I had the privilege of meeting a great man that I consider my mentor, A very successful CEO of a multinational Insurance company, father and Christian. I wanted to pick his mind and just gain wisdom from is life and experiences.
These are a few things he had to say about being successful and realizing your full potential;
- Everyone has greatness in them. But it always depends on how far you can see.
- What ever you do, make sure you’re the best, life doesn’t honor mediocre people.
- The morning is when destiny is decided, Command your day with your morning.
- There’s a level you get to in life where you have to bow down to something, Make sure that person is Jesus.
- Don’t be afraid to be uncommon, uncommon people rule the world
- Don’t procrastinate your life
- Don’t dress and act for today, Dress and act for tomorrow.
You see life is very spiritual, everything that happens in the physical first happens in the spiritual and that’s why having fellowship with God is very important if we want to fulfill our destiny
Let’s explore some of the things that will help us fellowship with God
Prayer is a channel where man is able to communicate with God. when we pray God reveals our true state to us, he reveals who we really are to us. It is also a means by which we pick the mind of God, A lot of things happen during prayer especially when praying in the spirit; We become bold, Our faith increases ,We gain revelation etc.
We have to speak to God and ask him to tell us the reason he created us.
The bible is the word of God, it gives us insight about how God speaks, His mindset, what he thinks about us and most importantly who we are in him.
God has said something about you, the only thing you need to do is find it in his word Jer. 1:5
THE PRESENCE OF GOD
The presence of God is one of the most important avenues of fulfilling destiny, it’s the presence that transforms you and changes you into what you should be (like Jesus)
When we worship, God comes down to inhabit the praises of his people Ps. 22:3
You see, when a manufacturer creates a product, he makes that product to solve a specific problem, the only reason that product was made was because there was a need, therefore that product was tailored according to the need it was “destined” to solve. So also God is our creator and he made us to solve a problem, we need to ask him to show us what exactly that problem is, because that’s what we were created to solve. Prov. 18:16
Let us try to ask God for help in discovering our destiny and purpose. A life without direction will be very very unfulfilling.
I pray that as you ask and seek God he will reveal your destiny to you.
