TITLE: PURSUE YOUR FUTURE
AUTHOURED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
Genesis 2: 15 “And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.”
People who settle for less than the best are either ignorant of the best that God has in store for them or the ones who don’t think they are fit to deserve such best. If God has said ‘this is who I am preparing you to become’ what should be your attitude? Some peoples’ background is their greatest hindrance. Someone said and I love it ‘don’t let your background keep your back to the ground’. For some others their past is their fear but people who keep looking behind never get ahead. Let your past go with the past.
Pursuit is the proof of desire. You must open your eyes wide and begin to see where God wants you to be and also begin to run to that direction without looking back. If you see greatness in your future, you must begin to act like what you see even when it does not seem so. That is what I call pursuit. Zaccheaus had a target to see Jesus but he was short in height, he did not let his height be a hindrance. For some of us that love to give excuses, Zaccheaus climbed a tree, saw Jesus and Jesus saw him. If you refuse to make a move, God will not move in your favour.
If the woman with the issue of blood sat back at home for fear of what people may say, she may have died of drained blood. She did not sit back at home harbouring wishful thinking. She made her move towards Jesus, she pressed through the crowd, and she defiled the law that forbids her from coming among people, touched the hem of Jesus garment and got her perfect freedom.
Are you just sleeping and lazing around dreaming of big things but never making any move to see its reality? I keep on saying it, God does not sponsor stupidity. You must package yourself to like what you want. Single lady look like the kind of man who desire for a husband, ‘like begets like.’ Mr macho make a move of proposal to that. Some guys just flock around a lady, never proposing, only to come back and claim betrayal.
Whatever you desire, pursue it with passion and diligence.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
O GOD, I GIVE MYSELF TO THE PURSUIT OF YOUR PLANS AND PURPOSES FOR MY LIFE. I WALK IN THEM IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.
