“….and say to Archippus, “take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfil it…” —Colossians 4:17 (NKJV)

“I know that God wants to use me, I know that God wants me to follow a certain path, I know that the call of God is upon my life, but I am just not ready for that right now, I want to make some money first, when I am ready I will do what God wants me to do” These and many more are the statements that you find some people say today, so they go on living their lives according to their own plan and not according to God’s plan. In the long run, when things do not work out for them, they start wondering why things are difficult. But they forget that they are not following God and His plans for their lives. Beloved, money is not everything, if you are going to have a wonderful experience in life, with everything going on smoothly for you, you must learn to be serious with God’s plan for your life. A lot of times, God has a way of revealing to us the plans that He has for us, but the challenge is the discipline and the willingness to follow it.

A lesson I learnt at a very early stage of my life is that, whatever your plans and goals are in life, God’s plans for you are always the best. Whatever aspirations you think you have, God’s aspirations for you are better. He is the one that created you and knows your future. He knows what is best for you and the best thing you can do for yourself, is to embrace God’s plan for your life and cooperate with Him to see it come to pass. Stop arguing or negotiating with God. Stop waiting for your own timing, go with God’s timing. Quit the delays and say yes to God. Be serious with God’s plan for your life, He needs you to fulfil what He has purposed to fulfil in your life. Remember, He will never force you, He has given you a will to choose. So, what you choose will determine how your life will go. If you choose to follow God and be serious with His plans for your life, you will be the one to enjoy it. But if you choose to follow your own plan and neglect God’s plan, you will only end up in circles. So be encouraged to do the right thing. Stop running away from His calling, stop running from the things He wants you to do. It is time you submit and say, “Here I am, use me, Lord.” The key to a life of fulfilment is not in believing God alone, but in cooperating with God to carry out His plans for your life. Praise God!


The key to a life of fulfilment is not in believing God alone, but in cooperating with God to carry out His plans for your life!


 All-powerful and ever-living Father, I thank you for your plans and purposes for my life, I declare that henceforth, no more negotiations with your will for my life, I choose to submit my will to your will and follow you all the days of my life in the name of Jesus. Amen!
