Choice: Pathway To Greatness


choice: pathway to greatness

We live in a kingdom of choices, not chances; the outcome of your life is a function of your choices. Choice is powerful. One wrong choice can lead to a lifetime wreck.

There are some critical decisions that we make at certain phases of life that have a lasting impact on our lives, whether positively or negatively. For instance, the choice of who to marry, what to study, which profession to pursue, and which business to put our money into If you are meant to be in education and you go into business, you will run bankrupt. The hands cannot do the work of the legs. Seek divine guidance with the help of the Holy spirit. Don’t ever take a critical step in life without hearing from God.

If you miss it in marriage, you will miss it in life. The choice of who to marry is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make in life. It is not difficult to know if you are taking the wrong steps. Choosing an unbeliever as your future husband or wife indicates that you have made the wrong decision. The word of God says, do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers (2 Cor 4:6).  In Amos 3:3, how can two work together unless they are agreed? For those who are yet to be married, do not choose your spouse because you are “John” and she is “Janet.” Do not go into marriage out of lust; otherwise, it will soon rust (the concept of marriage is beyond the scope of this post; I can publish a whole post on marriage). If you think you can change a man after marriage, you are deceiving yourself. If he is not in God’s presence before marriage, there is no assurance that he will be in God’s presence after marriage.

Beware of Wrong Association

Friendship is not by force; it is by choice. It is better to walk alone than to be in the wrong company. The company that you keep determines what accompanies you. The word of God says, he that walk with the wise shall be wise but a companion of fools shall be destroyed (Proverbs 13:20). Do not be deceived: evil communication corrupts good manners (1 Corinthians 15:33).

Don’t blame God for your predicament. You are responsible for the outcome of your life. No sin has any power over you unless you agree to it. Your consent is needed to disobey God. Nobody commits fornication, adultery, accepts a bribe, lies, or steals without agreeing to them. You have the power of choice to resist smoking and drinking alcohol, irrespective of peer pressure. Anytime you are craving that a wrong habit, resist it with the blood of Jesus, and the evil hunger will go away. Living anyhow is evidence of a lack of purpose. When the purpose of something is not known, abuse is inevitable. That’s why you drink excessively and smoke wide because you do not know the motivation for your creation.

Godliness is your pathway to greatness, in other words, your journey to greatness begins with godliness. Some biblical examples include Joseph and Daniel. When Joseph saw himself on the throne, he knew that Portiphar’s house was just a passage, he packaged himself dangerously to get there, and he got there. Even when he was in prison, he was a reigning king in his mind. You see, you can’t have where you are going and not package yourself to get there. Daniel would rather die than defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat (Daniel 1:8).

Beware of this satanic statement: If you can’t beat them, join them. You can’t beat them by joining them, or else you would remain under their control. Choose to be different. Because everyone does it, that does not mean that you should do it. Why do you have to fit in when you can stand out? By choice, Daniel reigned with kings. The aces are in your hands.

It Begins With Faith Is Out!


Greatness is our birthright in Christ. We are redeemed to be great. In Luke 1:32, the angel of the Lord said to Mary: “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High God.” That means Jesus was sent to be great. “As my father has sent me, so I send you,” he explained. —John 20:21. So, you are sent to be great as Christ was sent to be great. But in reality, why are only few people manifest their greatness potential in Christ? The answer is obvious. For lack of knowledge, God’s people have gone into captivity.

The sad thing is that some born-again Christians see greatness as an ambition. They think Christianity connotes suffering. They hold a paralytic view of “they must be poor to make heaven.” To them, fewness is synonymous with consecration. The truth is that Christ has redeemed us to be great, blessed, and be a blessing to the world around us. If an earthly father does give good gifts to their children, how much more is our father in heaven? God wants you to be great. There is a seed of greatness in you when you were born. For the seed to bear its fruit in your life, you must first be aware of your heritage of greatness. Many are sincere, but only a few are aware. You don’t know if your father has an inheritance, so you can’t claim it when he is gone.

The elder brother of the prodigal son was a symbol of dedication. He contributed a lot to the success of his father’s business. Contrary, the prodigal son collected his inheritance and lavished everything on riotous living. Then, he called himself to a meeting, repented (to repent means to rethink), and went back to his father. The father was happy and welcomed his lost-but-found son with a party. The elder brother was infuriated at the father’s actions. Here is how the father responded: “Look, dear son, you have always stayed by me, and everything I have is yours. We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!”—Luke 15:31-32, NLT.

You see, you can be committed to the things of God and still not enjoy their benefits. The elder brother didn’t know that everything that his father had also belonged to him. This is the picture of many born-again Christians today. Out of sheer ignorance, they’ve lost their blessings to the devil. What you think is who you become. You can’t think of fewness and arrive at greatness. It’s a biblical commandment that can never be broken.

Truly, we all have the heritage of greatness in Christ, but not all will taste it. The goal of this book is for you to have a mind transplant from darkness into light. To create an awareness that you are a bonafide candidate for greatness. And to help you with the usage of the tool that stirs and brings your potential for greatness into the limelight.
