Every human born into this life has a purpose to fulfill. Right from the day of your conception in the womb to when you came out, there’s a God’s divine purpose you were destined to accomplish. The holy book of Jeremaiah 1:5 confirms this. There’s no human that is without a purpose to fulfill in life, in Genesis, in the beginning of creation God gave a mandate to man, be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth. This mandate isn’t about the reproduction of human beings, it cuts across all facets of human endeavours. Each and everyone of us must be able to use our God given ability to get something done and add value to creation, that is the express command from God, who is the master of creation, and this is why we are different from animals and God made human beings to be higher animals. He gave us the ability to think, to be creative and accomplish great task in life. Unfortunately, a lot of people lived through life and died without realizing the purpose for which they were created, and lot more people are inadvertently presently living through life without any hope of discovering their real purpose of creation and use it to add value life. However, some people had also negatively used their God-given ability to make negative impacts in the world, which has resulted in destruction of lives and property, rather than building and adding value to life. They made impact in the world, but it was in the negative direction, and it has no value on the lives of other human. One thing we must understand as human being is that, this life is like a market place, where we all come to buy, and after buying we retire back to our individual homes, to give way for others to come and buy. Hence, the more we are able to get deals that favours us and also favours the other person and the society at large, the better and happier we become. One significant fact is that we must all leave the market when it is time, and at different times just as certainly we must leave the world one day, hence you must make good use of the little time you have here, so you’ll feel fulfilled and happy. But the very expedient question to ask yourself is, what would i be remembered for when i live this world? It is pertinent you ask yourself this important question in order to know if you’ve actually been wasting your time here on earth. There are 3 basic way of discovering your purpose in life. First and most important is, recognizing God, who is the master of all creation. He is the one that has put that ability in you, to accomplish great things. He alone knows the degree of what he has put inside you and the capacity to which you can function. Manufacturers knows exactly what their products can do, hence when they need that product to accomplish a particular function, they just call it up. God is the greatest manufacturer, he knows exactly what you can do because he put that ability, capacity and potential to accomplish a great task and fulfill his purpose on earth, so turn to him and ask him to reveal that purpose to you. He can speak directly to you through dreams to reveal his mind to you, therefore, if you have a particular good dream that is always re-occuring, take it very seriously, because there’s something or a message that’s being passed across to you through your sub-conscious. Get the message properly, and begin to act on it. God can also use men to convey his message to you to bring out that thing he has deposited in your and use it to fulfill your purpose. Therefore, you must be discerning and responsive enough to discover what is the will of God for your life. The second way is, discovering your passion in life. What is your passion or drive? What is that thing you’re always passionate about or interested in, that you cannot do without. You always feel satisfied, fulfilled and easily interested in when it is being discussed. Do you enjoy talking politics, money, business, leadership, entrepreneurship, music, education, sports, law, winning souls for christ or you like practical things. Anything you are passionate about is a signal that that’s where fulfulling your purpose will emerge. Don’t wish away your passions, put them to work and be consistent with them. The last point is, allowing your friends, colleagues, mates or any group you often spend quality time with, run a temperament test on you. Tell them to analyze you strength and weaknesses and discover which areas lies your strength, then begin to use your strengths to decipher your purpose in life. Our purpose in life is always fulfilled on the basis of our strength. Wherein lies our strength, therein lies our purpose!
It doesn’t matter how long a man lives on earth, what matters is the the quality of life the man lived. Whatever a man achieves on earth, is in conformity with his destiny, it only requires time, preparation and opportunity to come to fruition. Right from creation, man’s activities has always been regulated by time. Our thoughts, plans, desires, dreams, goals, and aspirations in life, are all regulated by time. Success in life, is when preparation meets with opportunity. There must be a time in life preparation and opportunity must meet to bring about our desired success. Every success and achievements in life must definitely go through the process of time before it can be realized. And until that set time comes, we can do nothing but to wait, and when it comes, nothing can stop it. Even God, during creation set a time for everything he created. No wonder the holy scripture said in, Ecclesiates 3:1, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heavens”. A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up, a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance, and the list goes on. This undoubtedly reveals that life is a process of time. Have you ever taken the time to ponder on why we have day and night? Why we have the seasons, winter and summer? Why a child has to stay 9 months in the womb before being given birth to? Or why a child has to take such a long time to grow into maturity? Why can’t these things just happen within a twinkling of an eye, like we’ve always seen them happen in films? It all points to the fact that everything in life is moderated and regulated by the process of time. The essence is all to add value to life, and compliment each others activities. Just like you can never the see the day and night struggling for time or position, or see the summer and the winter battling for the season ,one must definitely give way for another to come in and add its own value to life. God is the master planner, he is the greatest mathematician and scientist, he has done a material balancing on the world long time ago. Have you ever considered that for every one person that died anywhere in the world, there is always a replacement for that person somewhere else? He has destined a particular time for everyone to contribute positively, and add value to life, but most people fail to get to this destination because of ignorance and impatience. You definitely need to understand that time is very necessary to get to the height you’ve been destined to get to in life. Impatience has robbed so many people of their great destiny, because they want it to happen like in the Hollywood movies. Hope you’re not part of them? God brings down one, and sets up another, you never can tell what you might become tomorrow. If the president of any country dies today, will that make the country to remain stagnant? Definitely not, somebody somewhere must continue, that is how life was designed to be, and it is the will of God. This is what i call “material balance “, what goes out must be proportionate to what comes in. It is only time that can tell what a man will be, it isn’t by how fast and smart you are, or by your craftiness, or how experienced and knowledgeable you are, or by your intelligence. It is simply a matter of time and your personal preparation for that destination. “I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to them all” ~ Ecclesiates 9:11. This further butresses my point that achieving your goals, dreams and aspirations in life, isn’t by how fast, strong, wise, skillful or intelligent you are, it is a matter of time and opportunity. When that time and opportunity meets, the product will be an amazing success. The only thing you ought to be doing, is to keep preparing yourself for that great destiny that is yet to be delivered to you, by occupying yourself with meaningful activities. Don’t relax and just expect it to come on a platter of gold, you must be engaged in positive activities aimed at adding value to life. A lot of people also fail to get to their destination, because they fail to prepare themselves for it. Even after you have worked and did your best, you must wait for the right time to have that destiny delivered to you. True accomplishment in life, comes with time and chance!
