The reason for underachievement on the part of most people today is not always the absence of a sense of destiny i.e. a mental picture of what God would have them achieve or become.
Besides, lack of time is not always the culprit.
More often, the missing link is the ‘how’ to go about it all, that is, the need for direction!
Zig Ziglar once said,
Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.
Lack of direction is a major hindrance and cause of delay on our journey to significance.
For some, the problem is locating the right direction amidst too many options. Others however, are totally blank and absolutely lost concerning what to do!
Trying to run through a maze or in the dark is difficult enough. Imagine trying to retrace one’s steps after running at top speed and covering great mileage in the wrong direction, having wasted much time and resources!
In any case, we don’t have to keep wasting all our lives groping in the dark. The clue to the puzzle of our destiny is very close by. Always very close by!
Are you in search for the hows of your destiny? For instance,
– How to position yourself for a promotion at work or
– How to secure a better job
– How to get out of your paid employment to start up a business
– How to expand your business
– How to survive on a low income
– How to make your marriage work
– How to (please fill in the gap) today?
“Call unto me, and I’ll answer you and show you the way”, says the Lord.
The answer is just a call away. It’s always within your reach and always yours for the asking!
How about turning all your puzzles, confusions and needs for direction over to The Lord today?
Lord Jesus, I’ve lived my life confused all these years. Never again!
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my paths (Ps.119:105). I turn over to You all my puzzles, confusions and needs for direction.
Please lighten my paths and show me the way.
Order my steps and lead me straight to where the solution, the required knowledge, the clues are located; so I won’t keep wasting my life beating about the bush searching for an answer!
Unravel the mystery of my destiny before my eyes that I may march on with you in liberty and absolute victory-
Empowered to live to be what You destined for me according to Your perfect intention for my life. Amen!
