I concluded in the last part on a note that there is more to whatever situation you may find yourself in the heart of God than you can see from your physical perspective. David said;
“…Is there not a cause? ” 1 Sam. 17:29
Brethren, there is a reason why you find yourself in that family, there is a task God want you to accomplish with your life through that course you are doing, there is something more than you have ever thought of, that God want to achieve with your certificate, grade or for putting you in that place of work. Check that Romans again;
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.Rom. 8:28-29,
For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth; Rom.9:11
There is God pre-ordination upon your life, and as long as you stay true to God, everything will bring the good intention of God for your life to reality.
To become more than you are or you want to be, you must learn to submit yourself to God’s process without grumbling or complain. When David was sent to look after the sheep all alone in the jungle, there was no record anywhere that he grumbled, rather he was doing it with joy. Even when he was ridiculed and despised by his elder brothers, he never count it, he just continue to pursue what he was meant to be.
Actually, it was God that intentionally put him through all this processes to check his character and to prepare him for where he is taking him to. Likewise, every event of your life is orchestrated by God to process you for extra ordinary exploit. Thats why you feel like a lone ranger, that is why it is as if you are the only one with peculiar challenges-Yes, it is just necessary for you to go through it all alone because God does not need a duplicate for your future. You are the only one on the road to your destination, two people cannot be there. There was no two Joseph; neither do we have two Moses who went through the burning bush experience. There was no two Peter who toiled all night without a catch, do you know that if Peter was able to catch fishes that night, Jesus wouldnt have met him at the lake, the scripture says;
“One day as Jesus was walking along the shore beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers–Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew–fishing with a net, for they were commercial fishermen. Matt. 4:18 NLT
As commercial fishermen, they would have gone to the city for business transaction if not because there were no catches. Beloved, what you are looking at in your life as a disappointment shall be used by God to bring you to the next level of your life if you cooperate with Him. Therefore, be determined to see and enter to the better phase of your life, never allow frustration, fear or comparism to slow you down. The scripture says,
For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. 2Cor 10:12 KJV
Despite the fact that Elisha followed and carried the spirit of Elijah, that did not make him another Elijah. Never compare yourself with anyone, not even your twin or spouse, there can never be two YOU- it is either you make it to your destination or you become replaced. May you never fail God in Jesus name.
Hope you have been blessed by this teaching, join me in the next edition. God bless you.
