Have you ever anxiously expected a Parcel? Day after day you wait for a knock on the day supposing the delivery person will drop it off to you. After waiting and waiting, you realize that it was delivered to another occupant of the house over a week ago. This sweet person kept the parcel in a nice spot for you to discover it. The entire time, you have been complaining and cursing when all you needed to do was to look around and pick up what rightfully belongs to you.
This describes an attitude we carry along when expecting a change in our situation. We believe God has the remote control of our lives. That is totally correct. He is the author, the originator, and creator (Hebrews 12:2) of our entire being. However, it doesn’t end there and that is the point we miss.
Daily we go to him crying, begging and asking Him to change our situation because He is the author. Whereas, He turns towards us and say, “I have given you all that you need (2 Peter1:3), what else do you want me to do?”
So, what can you do to get the future you desire?
- Take responsibility: You cannot continue blaming external forces and people including your family members for the state of your wellbeing. Complain is the number one killer of achievement.
- Take control: If you identify yourself as a child of God, there is a power in you which is greater than whatever may be against you including what you have been through.
- Take Possession: Everything you need has already been given to you. Explore your potentials and you will be amazed at the gifts and talents which are lying dormant in you.
