A fruitful journey
At some point in our lives, we’ve been shocked at our waste of time, money and resources. More than once perhaps…
We might have even see life as entirely pointless just like moving in circles.
If you’ve ever wondered, ‘why am I here?’, you’re already on the right track!
I promise only one thing. I’ll point you to the only person that can give you the right answers.
Yes, God again! Actually ALWAYS! It’s always been his idea to put you here for
fun a good purpose. He could have chosen anyone else in this drama of life but you’re perfectly suited for the role.
Does this make you fearful or keep you on your toes or are you just excited at the thought of it all?
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well (Psalm 139: 14)
Highly favoured one, I wish I could hype you but the Word is more than enough motivation that tells no lies. Your creation was no joke! What’s not to praise God for ? He knew exactly what he wanted to make of you and here you are! You made it into planet earth and you didn’t even lift a finger.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10)
Highly esteemed masterpiece, it does feel like a rat race sometimes. Tell me more! BUT there is a purpose for your existence and it’s beyond inhaling and exhaling gases. It’s not even limited to eating, schooling, working and getting married. All these things are tools required to do what God created you for. Here’s a clue- It’s never outside the box of being ambassadors of Christ.
6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. 7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.(Romans 12:6-8)
Gifted one, we may look alike or even think alike but we are wired differently. You really are unique! The list of abilities is endless! The blending of different personalities is awesome! Can you just pause and appreciate everyone’s journey whilst realising yours is no less beautiful? Don’t give in to any more lies. Hear from your Creator Himself as you read His love letter to you -the Bible and have conversations with Him.
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1 Timothy 6:12)
Brilliant fighter, you accomplished much by making it here, but relax, no one is going to take away your share of oxygen before it runs out. I’m kidding! You were born into a battle field and the fiercest arena is in your mind. What you’re up against is terrible but the most potent battle kit is found in Christ alone! I’ve got more good news!
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
The victory over fear and feelings of frustrations against all that is against you is assured! The only condition is that you submit to God, embrace His salvation through Jesus and partner with Him throughout your journey of life.
I trust you know by now which direction you should be looking. Oh well, then I kept my promise!
I trust that by now you are more confident of who you are and whose you are. It’s like the most important thing ever to know that God’s love is enough for you in the midst of all sorts of challenges. May your eyes be enlightened to know the hope of your calling (because it’s beyond here and now!). We all started a journey at birth but our fallen state makes it extremely important to take on a new journey in Jesus Christ. I pray that you’ll experience the refreshing indwelling of the Holy Spirit and bubble so much within that others know Him too through you! AMEN!
How’s your journey being? Have you got any tips that has helped you thrive instead of merely surviving each passing day? Kindly share!
