Have you ever wondered what God has planned for your life? Have you ever felt the arms of greatness calling out to you, but you felt afraid and unworthy to accept the call? Each person has the ability and opportunity to fulfill their own level of greatness. The problem, most of the time, is fear; fear triggers a sense of unworthiness, the sense of unworthiness triggers doubt, and doubt murders our ability to hone the skills necessary to achieve the level of greatness God has planned for us.
The human aspect of choice is still our gift from God. He created a plan for our life, just as He created a perfect plan for Adam's life; and yet, we still have the option to follow and fulfill either His plan to greatness, or our own. In reference to His path, this is not referring to notoriety in the eyes of men; but, greatness in the eyes of God. Sometimes, the two paths will intersect; but, most of the time, they will be in direct conflict with each other. So, you will have to be careful, watchful, and prayerful in the direction you select. Sometimes one will be a direct result of the other. However, because of our ego, it is easy to become confused; so again, you will have to be prayerful regarding the options and opportunities set before you. The path you select may lead you to the kind of change that allows your spirit to brightly shine in ways that supersede anything that you have ever done before. Yet, in order to experience this level of greatness, you will have to step out on Faith. You will have to finally make the decision to trust that, if God saw fit to place the desire in your heart, He will also provide the opportunity.
There’s something supernaturally Divine in asking for the opportunity and guidance to fulfill God’s greatness for your life; after all, it is part of His ultimate design. Just remember to be careful what you ask for; because, the Bible clearly states, "to whom much is given, much will be required." L.
