SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLY!
Becoming All That You Were Created To Be
What prevents majority of people from becoming the person they are meant to be in life, more often than not, is a thin line! The gap between who you are at the moment and the person you were created to be is a very thin line; unfortunately, many people do not cross this bar in their entire lifetime and as a result never become all that they were meant to be. The most significant breakthrough that can happen to any man in life is to cross the bar between who he is and the person he was actually created to be.
No one can become all that he was created to be except he has an idea of Godís blue prints for his life. Itís important you diligently seek to know Godís purpose for every aspect of your life so as to help you drive in the right direction. Those who have no clear picture of Godís purpose for their lives will certainly have no problem settling down for just anything, anything that comes their ways! Many people are permanently kept behind bars in life because they are always striving to become what God has not made them; as long as a man strives to be whom God did not make him to be, life for him will be miserable and empty! To spread your wings and fly high in life, the picture of the man you are meant to be must be boldly stamped in your heart. You must realize that the talents, gifts, natural capabilities and spiritual endowments of God upon your life are particularly meant to assist you become the man whom you are created to be, no more no less!
Another thing that will help you cross the bar and become the man you are meant to be in life is your decision. It is unfortunate that most people donít ever become the man God created them to be in life because they are usually reluctant to make some hard decisions. It must be categorically stated that thereís no way you can move forward or break certain barriers around your life if you are not willing to take some painful and hard decisions. The hard decision for instance, may be that of permanently separating yourself from certain friends and people who drag you down; or saying capital ĎNOí to certain habits that are capable of ruining your destiny; or making up your mind to lead a disciplined life and do away with certain luxuries and frivolous excesses. Truth is you canít eat your cake and have it, itís either you make the painful but necessary decisions you need to make now and liberate yourself to be the man you are meant to be, or shy away from them and be kept behind bars for the rest of your life!
Finally, to fly high in life, you must be prepared to take risks. Thereís no other way to fly than to spread your wings and throw your weight out! You may have all that it takes to succeed inside of you, but if the readiness to take risks is lacking, your dreams will never come true! It is sad that so many people have greatness locked up inside of them but never become great in life because they are too afraid to step out. The scripture says God has not given us the spirit of fear but the spirit of love, power and sound mind. Thereís no reason why you should be timid or afraid to fly because the Spirit of God inside of you is daring and fearless! The only way to break the barriers around your life is to dare; never allow fear to cage you, step out in faith in the face of challenges and even when the circumstances are contrary. Spread out your wings in the air and fly, you may be tossed to and fro by the winds but you will never crash; once your wings become strong and firm, you are bound to fly like you never knew you could!
