I have heard some people in the past say: Ďitís my life I can live it any how I wantĒ. Such an erroneous assertion even proceeds out of the mouth of some Ďso calledí Christian. The truth is no human being owns his/her own life. You canít even create a strand of hair on your head, how can you now claim that you own the life you donít even know how itís formed.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14
Every human being is fearfully and wonderfully made. Nothing happen by chance, you are created for a purpose and you are too precious to be wasted. Listen to what God says concerning you;
Zech. 2:8: Anyone who strikes you strikes what is most precious to me. So the Lord Almighty[a] sent me with this message for the nations that had plundered his people(Good News Translation)
For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. (King James Version)
But inspite of the above confidential covenant that God has signed and sealed with men most still live recklessly. What we often fail to do is ask for our manual from God. Just as any manufacturer will never sell an item without a manual, God will never form a man without a manual for it operation. Imagine you buying a Sharp photocopier for instance and there is no operation manual in it, I donít really know much about law but I am sure in case of any malfunction or mal-operation even on the part of the user it will cost Sharp dearly. So also God is so careful never to form a man without manual.
The reason you are struggling might not even be that you never went to school but that you are in the wrong professional or career lane. Who says you have to be a professor to make it in life. All you need is Godís divine manual for your life in order to operate or function normally.
Every man has a manual. Itís always imbedded in you. In Jeremiah 1:5 God says: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. (KJV)
I chose you before I gave you life, and before you were born I selected you to be a prophet to the nations (GNT).
And just as a machine manufacturer will tell you that she will not be responsible for any damages as a result of you negligence to follow the warnings in the manual God will never be responsible for your in-actions or your choice to deviate from His original purpose for you. Ask Kenneth Copeland, Iím sure he will tell you that following Godís way is very pleasing and sweet.
When you follow Godís lane you have everything you need to run the race and just as Jesus pointed out to His disciples in Luke 22:35, you lack nothing when you follow Godís manual.
YOU ARE KILLING MANY DESTINIES
The most painful part of this is that you are not the one hurting when you choose to waste your life. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of destinies that depend on yours for fulfillment. That is, when you lock up your destiny you are not only depriving yourself of manifesting but numerous people are held back as a result of your Ďmalfunctioningí or Ďin-actionsí.
Every man has a follower or followers. Imagine how many more years Israelites might have remained in the chains of the Egyptians had Moses chose to waste his life or how disastrous it could have been for the whole world (as at the time) if Joseph had chose to sleep with Potipharís wife, I am sure a lot of lives most have been wasted as a result of the famine. Remember the story in John 5:1? That man could have died sick and waste his precious life had Jesus ignored His divine assignment in pursuit of self.
There are lot and lots of sick men waiting for you to heal them. They are sick financially, academically, professionally, maritaly etc until you ask them if they will like to be made whole.
If George Cayley had not made the discovery which the Wright brothers worked upon in 1903 names like Steve Fosett would never had come up.
Please stop killing these destinies, stand and discover your manual. There are so many live that only YOU can touch and heal. Iím sure you agree with me that for thirty eight years that the man had been by the pool many prophets must have gone by before Christ but only Christ could heal him. Even Christ had to discover his own manual to do that (Luke 4:16-19). Come on man! You need to discover yours in order to satisfy the yearnings of your deprived followers.
Who ever told you there is nothing more to explore lies. You see, the light of one star may be brighter than the other but can never stop the other from shinning; this is why I love 100m race. It is a race for the swift and one of the rules is that once you cross to another athleteís lane you are disqualified. We all have specific lanes but once you cross to anotherís you are automatically disqualified.
The most interesting thing about walking in the way of God is you live forever, even after your death people still celebrate you. Till date we still celebrate people like Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Graham Bell, Martin Cooper, etc. and till eternity the name of Jesus Christ will continually be celebrated for three wonderful years He did great exploits.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR DESTINY
You must discover your purpose in life in order to unlock several othersí that are tied to yours.
The best way to operate a machine is to first settle down with the manual. Every feature you have is contained in the Holy Scripture (the divine manual). There is something written about you but until you settle down with the manual you will always malfunction.
Habakuk 2: 1. I will climb my watchtower and wait to see what the Lord will tell me to say and what answer he will give to my complaint. (GNT)
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.(KJV)
He is always willing to talk to you but are you listening?
Please folks next time you have the urge to commit sin or in a hurry to waste yourself through liquor, drugs, fornication, adultery, etc. always try to remind yourself that so many people are waiting on you to unlock there destinies.
Stop killing their destinies!!!
