If you intend and desire to make any tangible success in life then one fundamental principle you must embrace is that you must take responsibility for your life – Be responsible for yourself, your family even your society. You must understand that whatever that is going to happen in your life is entirely up to you. It is you and you alone that can decide the outcome of your life; not your parents, not your teachers, not your friends, not your society but YOU, it is up to you alone. Can I shock you? It is not even up to God!
Yes, it is not up to God so stop depending on God to change things in your life. You see, there is nothing that God needs to do again to make things work for you because He has done everything already – all that is left is for you to take on the responsibility and take action.
While you’re praying and calling on God, He is saying back to you “I have given you all that pertains to life and godliness!”
While you are asking Him to heal you, He is saying to you “By my stripes, you were healed already!”
While you are crying for protection against your enemies, He is saying to you “I have given you power to trample upon every serpent and scorpion and nothing shall by any means harm you!”
While you are praying for financial provision, He is saying to you “And you will remember me for it is me that have given you the power to get wealth.”
So all that you need has been given to you already, your breakthrough is set already and all you need to do is take on the responsibility; not depending on any man or giving yourself to excuses… You hear a lot of people say ‘If not for the economy of the country, I won’t be suffering like this’ So until the economy becomes fair you will continue to suffer?
If not for Nigeria that I am in, I would have made my millions already – So if you don’t leave Nigeria, you can never be a millionaire?
If not for the kind of school I attended, I should have gotten a job already – So without a reckoned school, no job for you?
See, if you seek for an excuse, you will always find… How long will you keep on giving to excuses? What advancement have you made blaming others? One of the most painful excuses I have heard is “I am too young!” Young? At the age of 8, people were ruling over the land of Israel, at a youthful age, people were doing exploits even in a foreign land….. And you think you are young? In fact, you are getting too old for destiny. Get up today and take responsibility for your life.
Remember that the outcome of your life is dependent on you and you alone. If there is no one to help you, help yourself – it is not their life but yours so make it count.
So today I dare you, I double dare you to take that bold step and chase your dreams, I dare you to decide to take responsibility for your life and stop giving to excuses.
