Writing out a good name (2)
The memory of the righteous is blessed, But the name of the wicked will rot. NKJV
Yesterday we saw some of the questions we have to ask to effectively write our names. Yesterday we handled three out of the five questions that we need to ask. They were (1) Who am I? (2) Where did I come from? & (3) Why am I here? Here are the rest of the two questions to ask in order to have a good name:
4) What can I do? This is the question of Potential. Potential means what my true power is. 90% of people reading this devotional are living below their true power. You are only using 10% of your brain power right now. Who you are has never been discovered. Myles Munroe said that, “What you are settling for disappoints God. What you are proud of, God is ashamed of.” What is your true ability? Our culture tells us what to do.
The educational system of our country is where our problem lies. How can you teach a man for a whole year and give an exam and then from the exam you rate that person. Most of the greatest people on Earth have never really been to school. Don’t trust any system on Earth. No one can truly measure your level of intelligent. Don’t trust people’s opinion of you. You are far more than they say you are. Stop waiting for people to approve you and like you before you feel important. Be careful that you don’t allow people to judge you. John 15:8 says, “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. NIV” Our bearing of fruits as disciples can never be measured.
(5) Where am I going? This has to do with the question of Destiny. There are two ways to look at this. What makes you king, and where do you go to after you leave earth? There are only two destinations after life on Earth: Heaven and Hell. You have to power of choice. No one will stop you from going to hell. Take a decision today and write your name well.
- Dear Lord, thank you for today and Your Word.
- Father, help discover understand my true potential on Earth.
- Dear God, may I never miss it when it comes to destiny.
