As humans, we are embodied with a significant purpose and assignment, that is fit for a particular destination. This is why we must seek direction for our assignments, and not live with desperation, regrets, frustration, in a vagabond land.
A man testified how he had travelled to different part of the world looking for his greener
pasture, without seeking the face of God for where it is. He went to the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, and other parts of the world, because things weren't moving like he'd envisioned. He later came to his senses that moving to different countries, cities, or delving into different businesses isn't the solution to this stagnancy and frustration he was encountering at each destination. So he sought the face of God, and God spoke to him, also led him into his green pasture, the land that God has commanded to bless him and flourish in it. From that day until date, he has flourished, prospered, and living the life of abundance everyone of us has been called to.
Therefore we must always ask God to speak to us and lead us to THE PLACE!
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." (Isaiah 30:12) --- Just because everyone is going to the United States of America, or United Kingdom, or other parts of the world, doesn't mean that is the greener pasture. Some have made it in the USA or in other parts of the world, because that is THE PLACE God has commanded them to prosper, while some haven't. I heard of a young man who came to the USA with a visiting visa, and decided to stay after his visa expired -- that's like 15years ago, and until date, he's still at the same spot. Nothing is moving like they should, and the people he left behind back home, in Nigeria
, has made a name for themselves and prospered tremendously; from owning different businesses, to owning great assets, married, and living their lives like its golden. Yet this young man's life has been in total shambles; not married, living like a sojourner in a foreign land, with no legal papers to secure a good employment the legal way.
Finding purpose or knowing the purpose of a thing is not enough or having a vision isn't enough either. Therefore knowing THE PLACE to establish that vision, gift, or talent, is the key to the abundance of wealth, prosperity, and enlargement of that vision or purpose. When Bishop David Oyedepo moved to Otta, Ogun State
, (Nigeria), people thought why that deserted bush? I mean he could have said to his staff, let's buy the whole of Lekki (a suburb area in Lagos state, Nigeria), or a great portion of that city, and build the 50 thousand seater church auditorium to house the people of God, because Otta is a deserted bush, and doesn't look like THE PLACE, (not posh enough, and looks like no one lives there), and he would have been in the most financial hole of his life, no one would have known about him, and the 50 thousand seater auditorium would have been a deserted booth, an unknown place by many. But he heard God, and followed God to THE PLACE that didn't look like a green pasture to man, but to God who knows and sees ALL things, (Omniscient, & Omnipresent God). Today, he has the largest church (yet) in the world, and been listed as the richest ministry in the world. As if that isn't enough, the best university in the whole of Africa has emerged from that same place. Why? It is because, a man was wise enough to seek God to direct him, and wiser to have followed and obeyed the voice of His Shepherd, who is the only one who knows THE PLACE of our enlargement.
Friends, there is a place that God has prepared for each and every one of us to prosper in, it is called THE PLACE, and our goal in life is to get there -- because in that place, there is an OPEN HEAVEN, that will enable us to experience God's overflow of wealth and prosperity like never before. NEVER follow the crowd or what looks good in your eyes, because that may not be THE PLACE, but seek the face of God after He's given you the purpose of your life to know where you're supposed to flourish with that purpose. Every purpose or gift or talent, has a place of flourishing and enlargement. You must seek God for that place. You must not go to a place that looks good in your eyes, because Lot (Abrahams nephew) will tell you, it isn't all that glitters that is gold (Genesis 13)
I pray for the spirit of God to lead you into your greener pasture; where you will never struggle to get ahead, never struggle to make it, never struggle to flourish, and a place where your heaven will be permanently open, to enjoy the abundance of wealth He has for you; where you will be so enlarged that your name will go round the globe as a household name, and a praise in your generation, and in your world.
Lastly, "Wealth and honor come from You alone oh God; for You rule over everything. Power and might are in Your hand, and at Your discretion people are made great and given strength." (1Chronicles 29:12). Only by Gods discretion, and his direction will you enjoy His wealth, and honor. Always remember that, God's plan makes you a "sweat-less" overcomer. Until you get to your Promised Land, do not quit looking for THE PLACE!!!
Have a blessed week all.
