Text : Galatians 4:1-2
“Think of it this way. If a father dies and leaves an inheritance for his young children, those children are not much better off than slaves until they grow up, even though they actually own everything their father had.
They have to obey their guardians until they reach whatever age their father set.” -NLT
Listen : there is a YOU required for the dimension of success and destinyGod has planned for you.
Until you become that you, that person, you may go through life here on earth struggling and sweating…and maybe even thinking that it’s impossible to achieve your dreams of success and greatness.
The quality of you is what guarantees your success and greatness in life…
So, success is all about you…Yes, you! Not your location, your family background, where you come from, your certificate, your connections, or anything else for that matter.
That man who had been lying there sick for 38 years, said to Jesus, “ I have no man…”
Jesus said to him, “No! The question is, ‘Do you want to be well?”. (Read the story in John 5:1-9.
Success is all about you, dear…the quality of you…the stuff you’re made of…what you bring to the table…
Joseph was a successful man (a man who went from the pit to the palace…from a slave to the Prime Minister of the country where he was bought as a slave)…Read Genesis 39.
Why? How? It all had to do with the man, Joseph himself…Yes!
Pharaoh asked, “Can we find a man such as this…?” Read Genesis 47.
Daniel was also a super success in the land where he was a captive. For 70 years he was relevant in the government of the country…from one king to the other. Why?
Daniel 5:10-12 says it all,
““The queen heard of the hysteria among the king and his nobles and came to the banquet hall. She said, “Long live the king! Don’t be upset. Don’t sit around looking like ghosts. There is a man in your kingdom who is full of the divine Holy Spirit. During your father’s time he was well known for his intellectual brilliance and spiritual wisdom. He was so good that your father, King Nebuchadnezzar, made him the head of all the magicians, enchanters, fortunetellers, and diviners. There was no one quite like him. He could do anything—interpret dreams, solve mysteries, explain puzzles. His name is Daniel, but he was renamed Belteshazzar by the king. Have Daniel called in. He’ll tell you what is going on here.” -MSG
So, what kind of person are you? Your success and greatness on this earth will remain differed until you become the person required to attract it.
Remember Esau? Reuben? Judas? Amnon? Absalom? Eli’s two sons (Hophni and Phinehas)? They missed the great destinies they were born for because they didn’t have what it takes. As for Moses, it took him 40years to become the man for the assignment he was born for.
God will not use you until you become the person he requires for the assignment he created you for…(even men will not hire you except you have acquired the training and skill required for the job). It’s a price nobody can pay for you.
And one beautiful thing with God is that he will never give up on you…When you’re ready, he’s ready…And he’s a God of second chance. Alleluia!
