The Good news is that everyone is created for a purpose and well destined. However, there is something funny with our creator, he does everything to see us through towards our destiny. And at the same time unveiling our propose but He never says, ‘my son/daughter, this is your life purpose.’ Never!
Another thing is that after one realizes his/her purpose in life, our creator withdraws and on our paths allowing negative forces. He does so not to derail us but to for a very short time, to test your commitment and loyalty. And this is the only collateral God requires to guarantee you and me his full support.
In the Christians’ holy text- Bible, prophet Amos whom after being called, God went ahead and put the negative force at the place he was to prophesy.
Priest Amaziah of Bethel said to Amos;
“Off with you, visionary, flee to the land of Judah!
There earn your bread by prophesying,
but never again prophesy in Bethel;
for it is the king’s sanctuary and a royal temple.”
Amos answered Amaziah, “I was no prophet,
nor have I belonged to a company of prophets;
I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores.
The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me,
Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”
If prophet Amos was not determined to pursue his purpose- his mission, would he have heeded the negative force along his way, we won’t be having the prophet Amos we know today.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, are you passionate about something? Or have you discovered your purpose already? And is there a negative force stopping you or preventing you from continuing or pursuing it?
Don’t worry and don’t give up. Not always are those forces coming from the evil. But of course, yes, sometimes they come from the evil but it is not a guarantee of your failure.
God withdraws from our lives to test our loyalty. This happened to Job, Abraham (after God gave him Isaac, again he tests Abraham to sacrifice Isaac) and even to Jesus himself among others.
That is always a small test, the only gate to greatness. You all know what happened to Abraham (father of the great nation), what happened to Job (in many folds his wealth was compensated), Amos (one of the Biblical great prophets,) Jesus successfully brought salvation to the whole world… And the list is endless. You will also not be defeated but instead, you will come out more strong and blessed.
It is, therefore, my prayer that from today henceforth you will pursue your purpose. That, in everything you do, you will put that extra effort (needed to soldier on) despite the difficulties. May God protect and lead you (always) toward your destiny. And this coronavirus will not break you because we are created for a purpose, in Jesus name. AMEN.
