Nelson Mandela – An Exemplar Of A Visionary


Mandela is an exemplar of a visionary

The great Nelson Mandela was a man of vision. In the heat of apartheid, the apartheid people dug a hole and put him inside and they were urinating on him. What He saw in the prison should have killed him – though, Mandela’s body was dying but his vision was alive. He said, one day I will become the president of this country.

You can’t have a vision and not package yourself dangerously in order to get there. Joseph was a man of vision. He knew that Potiphar house was only a passage, so he package himself dangerously because he knew where he was going. Even in the prison, he was a reigning king in his mind.

A Genuine Vision Will Put You On The Run

The flight of destiny is talking off

Every true vision will always put the visionary on the run. You can’t have vision and be doing nothing in order to get there. When they say your flight, for example, an international flight, is taking off by so so so time; you will do everything in order to meet up, you will leave your food behind.

The flight of destiny is about to take off, are you still loitering around street, jesting everywhere doing nothing to show that you don’t want to miss the flight?

Are you still loitering around while the flight of destiny is taking off

Your Youthful Age Is Only Time-Bound & Your Energy Level Diminishes As You Grow

Your energy level diminish as you grow

There is a time and season for everything, there are some things that you can do now that you won’t be able to do when you become old. For instance, it will be funny enough to see an old man whose age is like 60, for instance, to say that he wants to choose a career in the field Athlete. Time has passed. It has become late.

Most of the people called stars are those that discovered where they belong on time. Timely discovered purpose is the key to your fulfilment in life.

A Wise Man Once Said, The Grave Is Where The Most Talented People Can Be Found

There are many great talents that have died unheard, buried and forgotten in deepest place under the earth. There are many great voices that have been silenced, great messages “un-preached” and many great songs unsung. What talent is yours? Have you ever discovered yourself?. In most cases, God lifts people by there talents. You can study Pharmacology or ‘Chemistrology‘ and ended up becoming a singer. That’s how strange God’s ways are.

I must educate you here, no matter which area of specialization you may find yourself, you’re not inferior to anybody – never see yourself like a grasshopper, perhaps, is the way you perceive yourself that others will perceive you.

There is no profession that is inferior to the other. if you need me, I will also need you. I read Economics, but I landed in the digital world without any experience, producing biblical contents, and setting up professional websites for my clients.

Find time to seek God to show you what your calling is

Find time to seek God to show you where you truly belong. Enter into prayer and fasting so that God will reveal your calling to you. It will become a terrible thing to spend a quantum numbers of years toiling and struggling, battling with one area that is not producing any result. Don’t be afraid to lay off whatsoever is not your calling (and when you have found your place on life don’t give up until your breakthrough arrived).

Explore. Discover. There is a unique gift inside of you that God has deposited there. Don’t die with it. Let it shines to the whole world. The world needs you. You’re a global citizen – you’re not a local champion – God says He will lift you high above all the nations of the earth (Deu.28:2).

There Is Always A Light In The End Of The Tunnel

Vision delayed is not synonymous to vision denied. Every true vision will surely come to pass – as long as the visionary is on the run – even though it tarries, press on. Put your life inline with God. There is no weeping under the sun that is permitted to go beyond a night. Everything that has a beginning will surely come to an end. It’s not going to be like this forever. Trust me. Obey, believe, be faithful.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. -Habakkuk.2:3

It always seem impossible until it Is done

How To Discover Your Calling And Purpose In Life


How To Discover Your Calling In Life
A Picture of Purpose From Google

God’s way is different from men’s way. As heaven is far away from earth, so is His ways distant from our ways. It will be very sad if you spend your lifetime doing what you’re not ordained to do.

In our culture, many people ended up doing what they did not study in higher institutions. It’s God’s way to bless people with their talents and gifts. Hear this, what will make you to become somebody in life is that talent which you’ve not discovered yet.

Frankly speaking, there is no such thing as useless person or field. You’re not inferior to anybody. If I need you; you also need me.

But the sad thing is that many people are living a shapeless life due to their inadequate knowledge about their callings in life.

Like the saying of a wise man, the grave yard is the place where most talented people reside. Of a truth, many talents have gone unheard buried in the deepest place under the earth (I wrote this post so that this will not be your portion).

What Are The Ways To Discover Your Calling?

  • Ask God For Direction – Out of sheer ignorance, Many people have dived into what they are not called to do in life but later regretted by asking God to come and finished what He did not start in the first place. I must warn here, don’t ever ask God to work out the plan He was not involved. Rather, ask God to give you His plan for your life. You can get this done by going into prayer and fasting for 3/7 days or as you are inspired by the Holy Spirit. “And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as noonday.” The cheapest way to access divine direction is prayer and fasting. It helps to dispel the darkness around your career, marriage and future; illuminates your path. Then, you become a pathfinder. It’s your birth right to have access to God’s plan for your life. But unfortunately, many born-again Christians have sold the birth rights for the feeding of the belly the same way Esau sold his birthright to Jacob – even though everyone has been blaming Esau for selling his.
  • Faith (action) – The best definition you can give to faith is “action.” It’s God’s style to leads His people by their actions – step by step, God leads – If God reveals a step to you, until you follow that step, don’t expect the revelation of another step. God knows you more than you know about yourself. He knows you right from your mother’s womb (Jer. 1:5). And God has the records about your past, present and future. The secret of your future is in His hands. But if God shows you how tall the mountain is, obviously, you’ll be discouraged climbing. Friend, release yourself from the shackles of ignorance and embrace God in obedience as He leads you step by step.
