Fallacy of Opinion

There’s no light in the souls of the unbelieved, no glimpse of hope – they are hope bankrupt, so they don’t have dreams. For these people, any aspiration you discuss with them that is beyond their horizon, it’s impossible, especially when the aspiration is culturally bent. They commit fallacies. They can’t fathom you. You are a mystery. You are wind. Go and fly (don’t mind who chooses to be a duck). You’re an eagle. Keep soaring high!!!

Fallacies are errors in reasoning. They are general statements or cultural beliefs which appear to be true but they are not because they are not factual and lack a strong basis to be accepted as truth.

According to Oxford Dictionary, “a fallacy is a mistaken belief, especially one based on unsound arguments.”

In your life journey, you’ll experience the fallacy of opinion, this will happen when your parents, guardians, teachers, spouse… (the list is endless) attempt to impose what they think it’s right for you to become in life. People will call you abusive and derogatory names of what you are not, but based on their emotional feelings and baseless generalization.

Here this: Don’t let anyone in this life make you inferior and don’t let anyone map out your destiny for you. Most people don’t know where they are heading themselves, don’t allow them to become your counselors unless they have proof to show.

I know that in life some people will call you stupid, or foolish; this could come from abusive parents, guardians, spouses, colleagues, or teachers, And some fault-finders will point an accusing finger at you that you are the cause of their predicaments. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his/her life. You are not responsible for anybody’s failure in life. If you point one finger at someone, the remaining four point at you.

Understand this, don’t feel wearied and depressed with the way someone else has made you feel, you are the masterpiece of the maker. Whatever somebody says against you is a fallacy as long as it is not written. God has the final say about your destiny, the word of God is your destiny lens.

Who Are You In Christ?

You Are Glorious

I am glorious in Christ and I have a glorious destiny, I believe so you are. The word of God is the basis of your life, in God’s word you are a glorious child of God, you have a glorious and golden destiny,

“For whom he did foreknow he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom he did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified. ”-Romans 8:29-30

You Are Envious

When God was creating you He did not put evil in any corner, In His plan, you are not meant to be pitied or look pitiful. You have an enviable or envious destiny in Christ.

“Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year a hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For her had possession of flocks and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.”-Genesis 26:12-14

Stop looking pitiful; start looking beautiful. Dress well and walk majestically even when you don’t have enough. Smile at life and stop wearing a long face, looking miserable. You are not the only one that’s challenged, there’s no challenged-free life. We can manage our challenges better than each other.

It’s scriptural to be challenged; It’s ‘unscriptural’ to be defeated.” ~ Bishop David Oyedepo

You Are Great

Greatness is your birthright in Christ. Jesus Christ was sent to be great (Luke 1:32) and he had sent you to be great also (John 20:21). Your journey to greatness begins with righteousness. Godly living is the foundation of every great destiny. Joseph fled fornication and his destiny was great (Joseph had seen himself on the throne, he did not allow his destiny to be truncated in Portiphar’s house, you can’t have where you are going and live anyhow. Daniel preferred to die than to defile himself with the king’s meat and he was great (see Daniel 1:8). You don’t have to join them to beat them. Choose to be different. 

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” – Dr Seuss

You Are royal

In God’s agenda, you are not meant to become a peasant but a king (you’re created as royalty). Wisdom is the ingredient for royalty, let the wisdom of the word of God dwells in you by studying, meditating and demonstrating the word of God. The way you dress is the way you’ll be addressed, act and dress like a king that you are in Christ. 

“But ye are a chosen generation a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” – 1 Peter 2:9

You Are an Ambassador

Ambassadors are one of the most respected people on earth. They are representatives of their countries in other countries. As an ambassador, all your bills are covered by the country that you represent. When you attack an ambassador, it’s considered an attack on the nation he represents.

You are God’s representative here on earth, all your needs are covered by heaven (that’s why the scripture says don’t worry about what to eat orwear), and even your passport bears a special mark. To mishandle you is to mishandle God which will cause the armies of heaven to step into the affairs.

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”  – 2 Corinthians 5:20

You Are The Salt of The World

One of the benefits of salt is that it gives taste to your food – salt is always sought after due to its vital function. You are redeemed as a salt of value that everyone seeks after. It’s a sin or disobedience that will erode your relevance but if you’re on course with Jesus doing what He tells you to do, the world will always need you. A genuine child of God is fit anywhere – because the gospel of Christ is universal and works the same way anywhere – he is a public figure (see Daniel 12:3, 2 Corinthians 2:9).

“You are the salt of the earth.” – Mathew 5:13

You Are The Light of The World

According to the bible, the light should not be hidden, arise and shine because your light has come, the presidents of nations will need your solution to their problems because of the wisdom of God that rests on you. Light can also be interpreted as sharing the gospel with others. Don’t be shy to identify with Jesus, it’s foolishness to be shameful of what is gainful. Lead others to Jesus.

Again, light means revelation which is one of the greatest assets in a believer’s life. The word of God is the foundation of all the things that work in the kingdom. Your life cannot be more beautiful than the level of your light. No lucky man, but lighted men. The more you have light the more you fly high. The Word and Jesus are the same, so without light or revelation the common foundation for your life, marriage, business, health, finances, and all other areas is destroyed.

You can’t have light and darkness at the same time. Darkness does not struggle with light. That means you can’t be in God and the devil – no middle way. Darkness connotes sickness, failure, stagnation, frustration, and confusion. There was darkness in the camp of the Egyptians, but there was light in the camp of the Israelites. You are today’s Israelites. God will exempt you from all the horror of darkness that affects others because your case is different.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know who you are in Christ, shake off your feet from the dust and put on the garment of praise and thank God for your colourful destiny. “When men are cast down, we shall say there is lifting up.”-Job 22:29 (Paraphrased).

Most opinions of men are fallacies (not true) because they take no bearing from the word of God. God has the final say in your life. Only He truly knows who you are and your life’s purpose. Seek God with the help of the Holy Spirit to discover who you are and chase after your dream.
