If you do what I am going to tell you in this post, it will be wise of you.
Can you, for one moment, guess the two important decisions I wish you could take today if you have not yet taken them?
I imagine it will be a hard thing for you to say what I am thinking of.
Let me go straight to the point and say it.
They are, first, the decision to develop your potential to the full, and second, to offer the best of yourself to the world.
These are the decisions I advise all young people to take.
I even advise every adult willing to listen to me to do same. Take those two decisions.
They are powerful decisions which can lift you to unimagined heights in life.
I don’t see any dreams for your life more lofty and more worthwhile than these.
Or, can you think of any? If you can and don’t mind it, I would love to hear.
Having the aspiration to develop your potential to the full and offer the best of yourself to the world means you want to be everything that God created you to be.
God has a plan for you. He created you for a purpose.
That is what you should seek to accomplish.
To do this demands that you first know what that plan is, and then how you can accomplish it.
With all this information in hand. you can then go for it.
One thing stands clear: only he who designed that plan can tell you what it is; and how you can realize it.
He alone can equip you to realize it.
This implies you have to turn to him for that
You have to plead with him to help you realize his plan for your life.
He will do it for you. He always does it.
When the Bible tells us in the Gospel of Matthew to seek first the kingdom of God and every other thing will be added to us, many people don’t understand it has to do with God’s plan for our life.
Seeking God’s plan for your life is seeking God’s kingdom.
God’s plan for your life is that you live in a way that you will end in his kingdom.
This means living according to God’s command; doing what God wants you to do to be the person he wants you to be.
The potential that God has given you is what he wants you to be in this world. Had he not wanted it, he would not have put it in you. He doesn’t work for nothing. He couldn’t have wasted his energy creating you for nothing.
If we all understood this and dedicated our lives to realizing God’s plan alone for our lives, the world would have been a heaven on earth for everybody.
Unfortunately, many are those who do not think of this. Many of us still see the world as a jungle where only the fittest survive;where the strong prey on the weak.
This is the reason we have made evil thrive more than good. In fact, one can say boldly that evil is in total control; and the world has become virtually unlivable for us all.
We need to go back to the drawing board and ask ourselves why God put each of us here. Each one needs to search for the answer.
You, surely, will find that God has a purpose for you.
When you know what that is, make its pursuit your life goal.
There can be no wiser person than the one who seeks God’s plan for their life, and who seeks, with the help of God, to make it a reality; and who seeks to offer their best to the world. To offer your best to the world is to offer your all to God. That is the wisest thing to do.
