I read a story about a peculiar fisherman from Minnesota. You see, this fisherman was very well prepared. He knew how to fish. He had everything you need to be a good fisherman. He had poles, nets, bait, and even a really nice boat, but this fisherman had a problem. You see, for all his preparation he never caught anything. Not one fish. Not one, not ever. And you know why he never caught a fish? What do you think? The answers easy: He never went fishing. He had all the knowledge and all the equipment, but he never got into the boat, he never left the dock.
No matter how gifted and talented you are, you will never achieve anything meaningful in life if you donít put what you have to use. Regardless of all the endowment heaven has bestowed upon you, you will remain stagnant, if you do not get up and do something. Remember the parable of the talents? Stop whining about what you have not being sufficient for what you need to do. Greatness is buried in small things, itís for you to discover and unravel it. A seed of mango is barely a seed to some people, others will see a mango tree in it while some will take their vision deeper beyond what the seed presently portend and see an orchard of mangoes. It is how you see it that matters. Beloved, that is the secret to a blessed life, the ability to see beyond the natural and behold the greatness in your future beyond what others can see or imagine. Heaven has invested so much in you; the resources you need are readily available, put them to use. Donít contribute to the wealth of the graveyard. You have a choice. Make the best use of what God has blessed you with. Bless you Big.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
