The human body is made up of various parts, yet they all work together to fulfil a goal without any interference.
Just as the eyes is for sight, the nose is for perceiving and the ear for hearing Etc. So is every believer in Christ. We are many member but one body in Christ.
Functioning effectively in the place which Christ has place you is what make you a success in life. Many people do live other people’s life, take up other people’s God given mandate, neglecting the mandate of God for their live. Why? Just for the fact that they think they can function better there. Some even say, I have the talent to function better in it.
Don’t you know what you called an advantage is a disadvantage in the sight of God?
If God could raise unlearned, insignificant men (neglecting priests, princes and nobles) to preach the gospel, made them a voice that echoes from generations to generations and placed them at the center of attraction and attention in the world, do you still think that your talent is a determinant of God’s mandate for your life? Do you still think it is an advantage?
Leaving the place designed for you and trying to live other people’s life is like staying in a room without an oxygen. Staying there could only cause you nothing but danger. Now, don’t be swayed off. Danger here may not be physical most times. It is spiritual.
I wonder how it will be, if on Earth, you are doing that which the father has not sent you fervently, men commending you while some ignorantly covet the grace at work in you but in heaven you didn’t live at all.
That when your profile is being checked, it’s so blank. How great is your tears on that one and final day?
Hear me now,
Never think you are born to replace someone
Never think that someone’s position could suit you better than the person placed there.
Never think you are born without a purpose.
Always see yourself as the original of what God has designed without any photocopy.
Always see yourself the way God sees you.
Stay put and learn the way to succeed in the place where He has placed you.
Learn from the one who has called you to himself.
Don’t take shortcut to fulfilling divine assignment, rather follow every instructions given, because they will guide you to fulfilment of destiny.
Stay focus, keep your gaze at the author and the finisher of your faith. You don’t have to be distracted, for it is one of the things that will make you lose focus.
Remember, success in eternity is not determined by earthly prosperity, it is by finding what God want and doing it.
Stay true, stay put, stay alive, stay in God, for the thought which he has for you are of good and not of evil, so he can achieve his preordained expected end. [Selah]
