In the pathway of every journey of life, a successful life tends to reveals the components of a meaningful life which comprise the achievement of aims, goals or, a tuning out of things as expected. Without goals you don’t succeed, or to try to succeed without goals is like playing a game of soccer without a goalpost. It won`t matter the direction you kick the ball, you`ll never score, and if you don’t score you won`t able to experience the unique feeling of exhilaration and psychological state of elation or, the feeling of fulfilling an accomplishment of task. In the course of attaining a successful life, the word fulfilment is what an average people is looking for because we are wired for it. Most people cannot define it, but when you get it then you can recognise it and you`ll know it and get what is called rest of mind. Success can be contradictory in practical definition, but the right definition of success can only be achievable from the standpoint of the mind of God.
What is your definition of success?
Success isn’t only about setting goals for oneself, because “for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15). You remember the story of the farmer in the bible that consisted in the abundance of the thing which he possessed. And thus, he began to eat, drink, and merry and seem as though he was celebrating the fact that he has arrived. And in the night, when his soul was required, all what he had possessed wasn’t his anymore (luke. 12 16-20).
I have seen that in this present era, our world is more money driven than destiny driven. But one thing you need to bear in mind is that there is one goal that man doesn’t set by himself is the goal of being born as a human being, but not as a lizard. Someone made the decision that you should be born, he designed and make you existed for a purpose and he has some goals in mind for your existence. So it isn’t enough to set goals for oneself and achieve those goals. Really, an ultimate success is to discover the purpose for your life and to achieve them. Jesus made it clearer that everyone shall give an account of his stewardship. He will tell some people that `you did well` and he`ll tell some people that `you didn’t do well`. In fact, Jesus described it that some of the people that will be disqualified will be the church people.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
The reason why there will be a huge disqualification at the end of day is that many people would have set goals for themselves that isn’t from the standpoint of God.
One thing that you should be happy about is that your destiny was designed and finished before your life began. Jeremiah 1:5. “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”.
Before anyone was formed, God has already knew what he intended for everyone`s live, and hence everything about your life have been completed right before your existence. “Although the works were finished from the foundation of the world” Hebrew 4:3. When you bring yourself in alignment with God`s plans and purposes for your life, you`ll enter your rest with faith because you have put yourself in a place where God has made all provisions and where the power of God will aid you to fulfill God`s plans and purposes for your life. It is good to know that your life is completely designed even before it started. The basis to understand that your life is designed before your existence revolves around your relationship with God. One thing you should work towards is to discovering yourself; because every life is already designed by God.
Let us life proven the glorification of God as you discover the structural designing of your life.
God bless you!
