Your destination in life determines your examination paper, so never be weighed down by the challenges.
The life of every human explicitly indicates that we are on a mission. No one can tell us where he or she is coming from, but within us, there is an instinctive drive which speaks clearly to our spirit that we are a vision conceived for a purpose.
You being the vision is compared to the conception of a child in the womb till the labour stage. Before a child is born, it must go through a lot of challenges, and even at the labour stage, some face a lot of challenges, but in the end, the child will be born.
Remember that these children born on a day have different experiences due to their mission.
Brethren, the story you are writing is not bigger than you, but that’s how God has planned your success to come to pass.
Yes, from a human perspective, they are leaving you behind because you began with them, finished the same school as them, and come from the same environment, but you have never asked whether you share the same name or destiny.
Joseph, son of Jacob, became a hero after passing his examination at Portiphar’s house.
Job was also able to sail through and restored after overcoming those challenges. The storm wasn’t easy for Job and Joseph, but still, they never allowed themselves to be weighed down by the challenges because they knew their God as a faithful God.
They knew that God would make away, so they had to keep their integrity right.
1 Cor 2:9; “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”
Brethren, when the heatness of the iron is low, it means the clothes won’t iron well, but when the heatness is high, then the clothes will iron well.
In conclusion, your greatness in life is inviting such challenges, so stay focused and never flout yourself, for you are great.
