I greet you in the name of the Lord. I am very happy to have you here. I decided to start on this note because I know that you are honorable and worthy of celebration. Thank you for choosing to read. I pray that as you read, you will experience a total shift in paradigm, and God will open the realm of understanding to you.
I will really love to use my time in this post to explain things by the help of the spirit. I do not want to rush at all, and that’s why I have decided to make this a series for you, so that you can consume the doses gradually. As you know, medically, it is advised that a patient is faithful to the dose, and not just that, but also to the process. The patient should not decide to take all the medications at once, it will be disastrous to his/her body system. Hence, if he/she truly wants wholeness, then patience and taking the drugs as prescribed is very important.
Now, try to follow me as I take you on a journey gradually. I pray that God will grant you the grace to see what you need to see and lay hold on what you need to lay hold on.
In the little time I have spent in “time”, after so many interactions with people, I have discovered a particular trend of reality. People desire to be great. People desire to be reckoned with in the society. Everybody desires to be affiliated with success. No man wants to be small. When you ask an average man what he desires most in his life, he won’t mention three things without putting greatness and success in the list. Every man desires the realm on the mountain.
Is this an issue? Definitely not. Man is meant to have dominion (Genesis 1:26-27). Man is orchestrated and formed to succeed. As a matter of fact, every man is wired by God to succeed and to rule. The original intention of God for every man is to have the rule and dominate. No man is created by God to be small.
But now, where does the problem lie?
The dilemma now is that, by the virtue of decadence that has swept across our world (which I don’t need to go into), men have forgotten the conditions tied to having that greatness and success. Men have still not understood the protocols behind relevance, and the required understanding to walk in the dominion that God has placed in the loins of every man. The truth is, until we come to that understanding and deliberately act on them, we will perpetually live like failures.
The burden here is, everyone wants to be relevant in their generations. Everyone wants to make an impact and be a voice. Everyone wants to be known everywhere. Everyone wants to be an icon, and a man or woman of influence, but there is one thing everyone is missing, and that is the place of understanding our place in destiny!
Let me be frank with you, until you have this knowledge, you will die from having to compete with every man, because every man’s way will attract you. Every man’s way will seem like the way for you. Every man’s way will look like your way if you don’t come in contact with this understanding, and you will never live as you, but as everyone else.
No wonder our dispensation is full of confused people. Confused, jealous, and envious people. You see someone peeping in on his fellow, and because that one is doing well in his sphere, and nothing tangible is coming from where he stands, he begins to envy him. Jealousy sets in, as well as bitterness, and in the end, he will not be able to make his own God-given destiny work because he has spent all his lifetime envying someone else’s place.
If you are still entangled in this web, sincerely speaking, you need light and understanding, and I trust God that you will come in contact with it in this series. Struggling to function where you are not called to is a disaster. Envying and getting jealous of someone else’s success is another catastrophe.
I have also been in this web before. There was a time when I looked at my friends, and see them doing so well in their spheres. I look at what they do, and see how they channel their energy into things and they work. I see them blooming and producing results. This made me spend my time envying them. I stopped working on where God has put me, and I tell you, I only became a spectator in life! It was not until my understanding opened, that I knew I had wasted time.
There are three main wisdom dose I will share with you now before I give you the divine methodology you can follow in order to perfectly discover your place in life and destiny. These three things will open your understanding to the main truth behind finding your place in life completely.
You Have a Place.
The first thing you must understand is that you have a place. Please read it again and again, and let it sink into your being. You have a place. What does this mean? There is a particular, special, and unique place for you in life. If you understand this, you will break free from irrelevant jealousy and envy in life.
There is a place for you. Whether you believe it or not, God looked at the corridors of the earth, He checked the universe and the world systems, and He saw a place that He needed a functionary and a messenger that can go ahead to express His intention and plan, and then He formed you, and listen, He formed you based on a unique pattern and reason (I will explain this later).
Let me give you an apt example. When you look at the game of football, you will discover that each team always has a coach that will instruct them on what to do per time. Watch this, for every match, the coach alone decides what each player go to the field to do. Every player has a place to function in that field. The major agenda of the coach before the match is to do what? To win right? Good. But because the coach wants them to win, will the coach tell every player to be the striker?(the one who stays forward to get the ball into the goal post). Definitely not! Although the coach wants the ball into the goal post, yet, he will not order or put everyone in the place of a striker. If he does that, the whole team will be at loss, because if the opponent should strike the ball over them and there is nobody to defend the ball at the back, they are done for.
Therefore, with the wisdom and understanding of the place of function, the coach gives the players an order and say “you, you and you stay at the back. You, you, and you, ensure you stay in the middle of the field while the rest of you should go for the ball in front”!
Watch this, despite this formation, the players at the back still have certain areas that are apportioned for them to play. One will be at the center, one will be on the left side, while one will be on the right side. The same applies to all the players in the middle and the front. Everyone has a specific place and territories apportioned to them to play and function. If it happens that a player decides to leave the place apportioned to him, what do you think happens? The whole team will suffer a loss.
There is a place for you in this field of life. This is one of the most powerful wisdom doses we have not come in contact with. It is one of the major reasons why we all seem to be failing. Because, when people decide to leave their places in the field of life, then all of us suffer a loss. We all lose when one person leaves his/her place. The alignment of everyone in their places of function is what makes everyone win. I can vividly put it to you that the decadence and the problems we are facing in the world today is as a result of men leaving their places of function.
You have a place, and if you don’t discover and stay there, the whole team will suffer loss and decadence.
You can’t be everywhere
Please read this too and let it sink. My dear brother and sister, you can’t be everywhere. Please let it sink in.
Imagine a player sent to the field to go and defend the squad gets to the field and started running all through the field. Goes from the back to the front, to the middle, to the goalkeeper’s side. How can such player survive for long? Such a player will get tired so quickly and in a little time he will be sent off the field. Why? He has lost the sense of his place. He thought he can be everywhere, and he couldn’t survive it.
Life is not a race, it is a journey in your place. This is the reason why people wear out and die before their time. They think they can do everything that comes their way. Every way that seems lucrative or influential, they follow. They have lost the sense of their places.
No matter how much you desire to win on the football field, you still must stay in your place. You must stay where the coach puts you. In fact, if you truly have the interest of the team at heart and you want the team to win, you must stay in your place and function well. If not, you will cause the whole team a great loss that they will not recover from.
You can’t be everywhere. You have to find your place and stay there. That’s how you can be relevant. Check every great footballers, they are mostly men that have mastered their place very well. Such that, if there is a crisis on the field and restoration is needed, the coach calls them and says “that place is suffering, we need you to go and occupy it and bring victory to the team”. That’s what we call relevance. That people will look at you and say we have this problem sir/ma, and we know that you are the best we can call to help us. We understand that you have mastered your place so well that you are an authority and an icon there.
This is what great men understand that makes them look like gods in our eyes. They understand how to stay wherein they are placed and called, and groom themselves well in it until they become so useful that the whole world can’t do without them. That is true relevance.
You are only relevant in your place
Read this well. You are only relevant in your place. Once you leave the jurisdiction of your assignment and function, you are absolutely irrelevant.
Have you seen a case in a football match that the goalkeeper commits an offense and the referee offers him a red card and tells him to leave the pitch and then a penalty kick out is given as also? In such a case, someone has to be the goalkeeper for the penalty to be taken. So most times, one player out of the whole team has to come and replace the goalkeeper because another goalkeeper outside can not come in and replace him as a substitute. Check most of those penalty kick out, it is always difficult for the player that replaced the goalkeeper to function well and prevent the ball from entering the post. Why? That is not his place. He is trying to take another person’s place and his relevance is not there.
Even if it is the best player in the team that replaced the goalkeeper, he will still struggle to prevent that ball from scoring. Despite the fact that he is the best player on the field, he won’t be able to function as the goalkeeper. He only remains best if he stays in his wing and not come to replace the goalkeeper but because the condition warrants him to take that place, he has no choice.
Anytime you leave your place, this is what happens, you become irrelevant. Whether you are the best at what you do or not, once you leave that jurisdiction to peep into other man’s function/place, you become totally irrelevant and useless.
Your place is your ace. Your place controls your grace. Your place determines your relevance. You must find it out and stay there. Otherwise, you will keep every one of us in trouble because your displacement will cause us a loss.
Can you see the reason why we all must stay in our place and function? It is because a misalignment or displacement from a person/player/member will cause all of us a huge loss. This is the main reason why our world is in serious decadence. Men have left their places. They are doing what they are not supposed to be doing. They are doing other men’s work. Functioning in other men’s jurisdiction and hence, our world has suffered great losses.
Now that you know that you must find your place in destiny and function well there, how do you find it perfectly? This will be coming up in the next post. Watch out for it, you will be blessed tremendously. I call you blessed. Have a great day.
