Discovering Your Talent


There is no time to experiment with life. You are not getting younger anymore. This is the time to discover your talent and get busy with it. Every work is lucrative. It all depends on the way you handle it. God does not want you to die on that job. Understand that your job is temporal. Your talent is permanent. They can fire you from your job. But they cannot fire you from your work. Your job is the things you learn to do. Your talent is the thing you are born to do. Your job brings you a salary. Your talent brings you wealth.

A wise man once said the wealthiest place on earth is the graveyard. Buried in the graveyard were books that were never written, songs that were never heard, businesses that were never opened, ministries that were never started, and paintings that were never painted. You are about to add to the wealth of the graveyard. You have had a great business idea for the past 20 years but you are still stuck on that job waiting for your next paycheck.

The Bible says, “your young men shall see the vision, and the old men will dream.” Acts.2:17. No matter the age you are right now, it’s not too late to start all over again. Abraham caught his vision at 75; Joseph started dreaming at 17. Your age bracket notwithstanding, you can start daydreaming again. When you were a child you dreamt of becoming a doctor. There were so many great things you dreamt about. But as you grow, they began to tell you “be real” and “stop being childish”. It’s time to be childish again. In most cases, your childhood dreams are your real purpose. Your daydream is your purpose.

You are going to that job because you have to not because you want to go. The fear of people is the greatest dream killer. Most of your dreams have become nightmares just because of people’s opinions. Many of you are living by what parents, guardians, teachers, employers, spouses, and so on say that you are. The truth is that nobody knows the purpose of a product better than the manufacturer. You are God’s product, He is your manufacturer, and the Bible is your manual. If you want to know who you are, get busy studying the scripture. The secret of who you are, why you were born, and what you were born to do is with God, not your parents. You need the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you.

“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. ” But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.” – Mathew. 15:13-18

Be nice to people because you don’t know what they are carrying. There is a vast potential inside of you which can only be activated until you discover your purpose. Don’t look for a job; look for a vision. The greatest tragedy in life is not death. It is to pass through life without discovering your talent.

2 Factors Contributing To Your Backwardness In 2020


As we are approaching year 2020, we need to start laying off the things that hindered us from progressing in 2019 so that this coming year will become a better story. I pray that as you read further your eyes will be wide opened to the things you need to drop to ride majestically to your place of destiny in 2020

Association

The company that you keep determines what accompanies you. There is no association that leaves you neutral. Your friends can either make or break you.

A negative friend can have a very negative influence on you. This explained why many well trained children turned into something unusual when they entered higher institutions. Many of them became smokers, cultists and harlots in school because they were influenced and initiated by there negative friends. The bible says, “evil communication corrupt good manner (1.Cor.15:13).”

A company of fools will not only produces a fool but will also drastically destroyed the victim (Wrong association equals quick destruction).

“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed (Prov.13:20).”

Traditional Perspectives

Sometimes it may be very difficult to break the vicious cycle of traditional orientations. This stereotypical way of life can be cancerous except it’s done away with Christ. The last word Jesus said on the cross was “it is finished.” (John.19:30). An end has come to false beliefs and superstitions. You’re no longer under the bondage of idol worshipping and blood sacrifices. The blood of Jesus is the only blood that is needed for sacrifice and it has been used.

In our culture, the birth of a twins used to be perceived as a taboo & even the children was identified as idol. So, these people would rather kill them than to see them living.

While some are currently involving in the worship inanimate objects because that was what their ancestors used to worship. While some people still believe is charms, incantations and enchantments most especially for evil purposes.

The bible says, “I’m(Jesus) is THE way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me (Jn.14:6).”

The is a definite article, there is only one way and that is Jesus.

The sad thing is that many are still under the plague of fear because a professional prophet who told them that they are destined for misfortunes and curses are hanging over their destinies. Beyond any reasonable doubt, curses are real(all curses including generational curse are real).

“Thou shall not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me (Deu.5:9).”

But, the truth is that all curses including generational curse are reversible. In the family of Christ, it’s your birthright to be blessed (blessings are reversal of curses). You’re a seed of Abraham and Jacob who is ‘uncursable.’

“There is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, what hath God wrought (Num.23:23).”

However, you can’t claim to be a member of a family expect you’re one. The day that you received Jesus as your personal Lord and saviour, your family lineage changes from your biological family to the family of Christ.

Wait a minute, Jesus had taken your place in spell, magic, curse, sickness and disease on the cross and He said, it is finished.

“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross (Col.2:14).”


Final thoughts

The two factors contributing to your backwardness in 2020 are:

  • Association and;
  • Traditional Orientations

The entire world lies in a magnetic field of wickedness. In this negative pole of evil, we live among wolves in sheep clothing. Be careful of whom you move with. Friendship is not by force but choice. Jesus is my best friend. Humans behaviours are erratic (unpredictable). Ingrained in your spirit, traditional views and orientations which must be casted down by embracing the true picture of whom you are in Christ (by looking through the window of the scripture). Then, you can live a fulfilled and advanced life according to the original plans of God in 2020 (Jer.29:11).
