27th SEPTEMBER 2021

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be –  Psalm 139:13-16

There is no doubt that, for so many reasons, some persons are not happy with where they are at the moment in terms of their career or vocation. While some are moving with confidence toward the desired goal in life, others seem to be drifting off course without any sense of purpose or direction. As a result of this inadequacy, these persons sometimes get disillusioned.

Why does that happen to so many, you may ask? There are two basic reasons for this: (1) people have lost sight of who God made them be and what He wants them to do; (2) People are not actively, intentionally, and purposefully pursuing what God has destined for them. If you truly want to develop your full potentials or achieve the plan and purpose of God for you, then you must first agree that God has placed something in you to enable you to succeed in life.

Further to the above, you must agree that if you still cannot live a fulfilled life in line with your destiny despite the power of God in you, then you must have willingly chosen to remain stagnant. This is correct because nobody can stop the power of God from working through you. ONLY YOU WOULD DO THAT by your lack of focus and other forms of compromises, such as spiritual compromise. Spiritual compromise can arise as a result of disorientation and misinformation regarding the straightforward things of life. For instance, we sometimes get unnecessarily agitated or terrified when we go through a not-too-comfortable experience. Rather than learn how to do things properly, we blame our woes on others. So much time is spent banishing evil rather than deploying energy to recreate what is lost in the process.

 Unnecessary fear and a negative mindset lead to wrong presumptions and a negative shift away from divine providence. There is no place for demonic influence in a spirit-filled vessel which you are! Christ is in you. Also, you have been created in the image and likeness of God! Therefore, avoid selling your birthrights to the demons. Anyone who does that will suffer from spiritual blockages, preventing them from reaching their destiny. I urge you today to shift your focus  AWAY FROM THE DEVIL.

Christ is working through you onto ultimate perfection in everything that pertains to you. IF YOU ARE STILL IN DOUBT OF THIS REVELATION, THEN YOU ARE YET READY TO TAP INTO GOD’S POWER LYING DORMANT IN YOU.  Today’s word says you were fearfully and wonderfully created, and a specific number of days have been allotted to you already. You have to make good use of this number of days for the glory of God. From this moment, start to see yourself from a different dimension – a dimension of an image of God who God fearfully and wonderfully created to be like Him. You are destined for success! NO MORE COMPROMISE!  


Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I commit my vocation into your hands today. Lord, help me release my full potentials to better serve your plan and purpose in life. AMEN
