Let the real you emerge
I read a story about a motherless tiger cub that was adopted by a goat and brought up by the goat in the midst of other goats and ate what they ate, acted like a goat and cried like a goat. He believed he was a goat, though that was not what he was born to be. To an extent, human beings, especially Christians are like that tiger-goat. They are not what they are created to be.
This tiger-goat is not a goat. It is a tiger but lacks the knowledge of its true identity.
Many who are supposed to be great men and women doing exploits for the kingdom have lost their self-identity in the journey of life. I have heard it said that the richest place on earth is not the oil wells of the Middle East or the vaults of the world’s central banks but paradoxically, the cemetery or the graveyard, where men and women with unfulfilled dreams, visions, destinies, and great potentials are buried; men of great ideas that fossilise in them and died. The grave is a dumping ground for unfulfilled dreams and opportunities.
You are on earth for an assignment, a purpose to be fulfilled. Your parents may not have planned your birth, but God did. He crafted your birth with a purpose. You are not a mistake (Jeremiah 1:7).
Life should go beyond normal routine of birth, growing up, marriage, raising a family, paying bills, growing old and dying. There is more to why you are on earth, so you must discover your purpose and pursue it.
American President Abraham Lincoln once said, “Let the people know and the society will be saved.” Thousands of years ago, Jesus had put it stronger and better, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”A discovery of your purpose will enhance the fulfilment of your glorious destiny. David located his purpose and fulfilled it.
For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption. Acts 13:36.
Jesus completed His assignment and He said it is finished (John 19:30).Apostle Paul said to his son Timothy with confidence that he had finished his assignment on earth (2 Timothy 4:6-8). The Apostle knew his assignment and he pursued it with everything within him (1 Corinthians 9:29). When you know your assignment and pursue it with a zeal and determination, you do not fear death rather; you look forward to death when you have finished.
