Some children already know what they want to become in life. This may be as a result of films they watch or various events that took place around them. Some have actually followed up on their dreams, others had their dreams change along the way while a number didn’t bother to attempt it.
People prefer to follow a particular pattern in life. They prefer to do what others are doing especially when they see others succeeding in that area. At the end of the day, the get really bored with everything.
In essence, it’s not really about what we want to do but what God wants us to do. That is where we find all the excitement we need. One begins to feel excited about going to work. This can also be related to our passion, what we enjoy doing.
When one is in God’s plan the following things happen;
1 ) One is always eager to work.
2) Hours will go by and it will feel like you have spent a few hours.
3)There is always progress from one level to another.
4) There are tangible rewards for your labour.
5) Even in the midst of trials and temptations, you are so sure it’s for a little while and at the end of it, you will come out with something bigger and better.
Steps to take in order to be all that God wants you to be
First and foremost, find out what God’s plan and purpose are for your life. God created each and every one of us for a purpose and He is also the custodian of this information. It is our responsibility to ask God for His plan for us on earth and how we can accomplish this task. Sometimes our purpose in life could be in areas we find exciting, some might call it hubby. For more on this aspect, check the post on No parking, no waiting, keep moving.
Secondly, we should work towards achieving this goal once we know what it is. Start by doing something. You may not have the resources now but start with any little thing around you. Never despise the days of little beings and whatever thing your hand findeth to do, do it with all your heart because God blesses the works of your hands. This stage can be equated to the sowing stage.
Ingredients to make this happen include determination, diligence, discipline and sacrifice. For more on this topic, check the post on moulding your dreams.
Thirdly, don’t forget to give thanks to God and acknowledge Him in all your endeavours then things will begin to fall into place.
Once you’ve found this purpose/plan, you need to decrease for God to increase. Less of what you think and more of what God thinks. Don’t be ashamed of your calling. Some people when they recognize their purpose on earth, they feel ashamed reason being that where they were was more “prestigious” compared to what they’ve been called to do. This is a lie of the devil as there is no place more prestigious than where God has called you to. Remember it’s the end of a thing that matters not the beginning.
God knows the end from the beginning and partnering with God brings out the giant in you. Obey every of God’s instructions, let the Holy Spirit lead you so you can enjoy breakthrough on every side.
Don’t follow others because you believe that is where the money is or because people are more recognized and respected in that field. God called you alone and He will make you alone if you yield to His leading.
