I am not sure who this quote is by, but it’s been crashing my world for about a day or so now. Because I read it as there’s nothing in the way of accomplishing all that God has called me to. God even worked it out in such a way that He will cause the world to help me fulfill His plans, and not just me, but you as well. How do we start one might ask, How can I be so sure that all this ideas, ambitions and dreams aren’t merely just taking up space in my head, how can I make my dreams a reality, rather than simply thoughts in my head? The most important key ingredient…
A relationship with The Father.
I will be a fool to tell you that You could go about this any other way, that you don’t need God. But at the end of the day you need Him beyond my words could ever fully express. I can’t put on paper just the extent of how much you need Him. You have to remember that you were born to worship Him. We as humans we born to worship, some people choose God, or others things to worship, but the natural state of our mind is to worship God. Make Your heart a home for Him, you will experience so much freedom, the things of this world that came to destroy His plans for all life will come to nothing because of your relationship with Him. At the sound of His voice the enemy flees. You think satan wants to sit there and listen to you praise Jesus all day every day. And this is one of the many perks of having a relationship, He will show you how the enemy sneaks into your life, goodness if we are honest we pretty much open the door wide open and gave him grounds to come and lay his eggs. But with God you will have the strength to push through whatever comes your way, you don’t have to sit there and live a defeated life, but rather a victorious one, because of what He did. He surrounds you with angels on assignment. His love covers every so called “bad” things you could, and will ever do. He sees things through the eyes of love, He didn’t come to punish you and make you pay for your sins. Believe me, you cannot pay for the sins you committed. He died on the cross for all your sins, once and for all. There is nothing that you own Him, but to simply lay your life down for all He did for you. Another key ingredient is…
You have to believe that What God says about you is all true, that every promises He gave you in His word is true. You have to believe that God will make a way for you, I will even go as far and say, that He has to do it. Why? Because His name is on the line. God is beyond jealous for His name, glory and renown. He will never let anyone slander His name and get away with it. So believe me, God is for all your dreams, because it brings Him glory. He wants you to be successful in all areas of life, not just spiritually. He also want you to be the best at designing the future of the automobile industry. He wants you to run for president, so He can shine through You. He wants you to play football professionally, so He can do some hard core circumcision in such an area of influence in our culture, not matter what you dreams, desire, goals, ambitions are. God is for you, so who can be against you? Even when things don’t seem like it’s not working out in your favor you have to remember that God works out all things for the good of those who love Him.
I took a practice exam this weekend and it didn’t go as well as I wanted. Like I truly believe that I am taking my real exam in less than three months, and when people ask me that’s what I tell them. So when this happen, I had to make up in my mind whether I will still put my trust in what God said already. I mean I cried, the enemy almost wondered in with negativity, but with God I still here, happier than I’ve ever been, thankful for the experience, knowing that surely i will indeed take my exam in less than 3 months, not worrying about details, but simply fixing my eyes on Jesus. I mean there is such a peace in my heart about His plans, so just because my present is saying something, and God has already spoken, the two are in opposition to each other, but I HAVE to put my hope, my faith, my all in what God said already. I know better and we can never let our circumstance determine the outcome of our lives, circumstance change every second of everyday. But God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. We have to put our hope is The One who will always be there. My last point that I believe is vital in accomplishing our dreams on the earth is ….
Celebrating other’s success paves the way for our own individual success.
I can’t always say that I’ve been good at this, but the more and more mature I get in the Lord, the better He makes me in this area. There is absolutely no reason to be jealous of anyone’s success, because you will get your turn. The line to be successful is single file. Yes it might be a group effort, but at the end of the day you yourself have to do something whether it’s an exam, paper, to prove that surely you are indeed competent for the particular job, title, whatever it might be. Most exam are individually based, most interview are also individually base. At the end of the day you determine just how far you go. You set the tone for the course of your life and the things you want to accomplish, and Heaven will back you up. At the molecular level we don’t even share the same DNA, so what’s the point of me worrying about the person next to me, my turn will come at God’s perfect timing. But before my turn comes, I have to be able to genuinely celebrate everyone else’s success. Every time I hear about someone I went to either High school, undergrad, or people I just know doing something with the gift God has given them, I am so grateful. Literally God has allow me to know some of the greatest people that will ever walk the face of the earth. People that are world changers. Individuals that are passionate about Him, and also really good at whatever they do. Even if I’m not supper close to the individuals, but I just can’t help but celebrate their lives. Celebrating others success simply paves the way for our own.
Be encouraged that yes the road to success is not always smooth, but Jesus is always there guiding every step. With Him you will always live, walk, and breath victory. Overcomers is simply part of the DNA of those who put their trust, and hope in the Lord. I dare You to make the decision to let Him be the center of your life. No truly, heaven and earth haven’t seen the incredible plans He had for you because you choose to put your hope in Him
