Before you read this blog, I want you to first answer this question: If time, money, or ability is not an issue, what would you want in this life?
Is it to help other people, to travel, to buy a house or a car, to be a missionary, or to be able to put up a school or an adoption house?
In other words, we all have our own dreams and aspirations in this life. Maybe we still haven’t achieved them yet because of the challenges and problems that we are facing.
Maybe it has gotten to that point wherein we no longer have any time or chance to dream and sometimes we don’t even believe anymore that these dreams will come true in our lifetime.
Sometimes, we have the tendency to look down on ourselves and refuse to believe in who we are and what we can do.
If you don’t believe the truth that you are able, can I make a request through this blog post? Could you listen to me? Could you give way to what I’m saying and receive it openly? Just this once?
Let me tell you this:
YOU WERE BORN TO WIN
God only creates winners. God is mighty and awesome, and He did not create a single person in this world to lose.
The ultimate desire of God when He created us is for us to succeed in every aspect of our lives. This is because every success that we are experience doesn’t have to do with just us. It also brings glory to God.
But why is it that there are people who seem to always lose in this life? This is because of the choices that he or she makes. God gave us the freedom to choose. More often than not, what we choose are the wrong choices, and these wrong choices have corresponding consequences.
So now that you know that God created you to win, you have the freedom to choose to make the right decision.
YOU WERE BORN TO PROSPER
Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
But here’s a word of caution. Money is not the only measure of a person’s prosperity. Being prosperous also means success in our health, relationships, and career.
If you are not in the hospital right now, or you have never been confined, you are prosperous in the area of health.
If you have loving relationships among your family members, then you are prosperous in the area of your personal life.
The Lord wants to BLESS each and every one of us. This isn’t just so we can become rich, but so that we can help other people.
YOU WERE BORN FOR GREATNESS
You are not an ordinary person. God created you to become special. As a housewife, you are not a plain housewife. You are special! Just like a halo-halo – you are not regular, you are special! Just like a gadget – you are not just 1.0, you are special!
To be a great person doesn’t mean that you must have hundreds of thousands of followers. You don’t have to be a great writer, a public speaker, a lawyer, a doctor, or a politician. You don’t need any special titles for you to consider yourself as a great person or as someone who is special.
You only have to realize that we are all created in the image of God. This means that you were created in the likeness of a great God.
So, you are created for greatness and not for smallness. You are not great because of who your parents are or what you have done to other people.
You and I will become great because the knowledge that God has given us is more than enough to turn you and I into a great person. It is God who makes us great.
But why is it important to be successful? Because this is your destiny! Never live on survival mode, but on thriving mode. You should never settle for less, but always go for the best. Never settle for smallness, but always go for greatness. Because every individual should be successful.
Why don’t you and I claim our destiny? It is time for you to become successful.
THINK .REFLECT. APPLY.
Do you believe that you were created to be successful? What can you do to move towards being successful in your relationships, career, and life? (Chinkee Tan)
