Peace and blessings to you in the name of Jesus Christ! You are welcome to this awesome month. God is set to grant you in-depth knowledge of His plan for your life, which is accompanied with loads of blessings and eternal peace. Everyone is fashioned with a great destiny; the best of the best has been loaded in each destiny, but it takes a realisation to walk in fulfilment of it.
Whatever situation or circumstance that surrounds you right now notwithstanding, you must settle it in your heart that the future God has planned for you is a glorious one. Whoa! What a great privilege to know that you have a beautiful future, filled with peace, joy, blessings, hope and fruitfulness. A future that is enviable by all and fulfilling. The Bible says:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11).
God has great things in store for you. He so much loves you that He thinks only thoughts of peace, life and greatness towards you. The reason why people don’t see these is that they have not come to realise it or they do not believe in the actuality of God’s thought for them.
That is why this month, I will expound the topic: Securing your future. You can also term it as securing God’s glorious plan for your life.
As beautiful, promising and colourful as your future is, it is unrealisable if you don’t secure it. The dictionary meaning of the word “secure” means to guard something against the risk of loss, danger, or attack. It also means not likely to fail or give away; keeping a thing stable, certain, guaranteed or protected.
From the above definition, it means that every glorious future stand the risk of been under attack. However, for you to successfully achieve that great future God has in store for you, you need to protect and guard it from loss or danger of being stolen.
Yes! Ones destiny can be stolen. Remember the Bible says: The thief comes not but for to steal, kill and destroy… (John 10:10). You know that satan has always been the thief from the beginning. So he goes around like a roaring lion seeking for destinies and great futures to devour or steal (1 Peter 5:8). He will not find yours in the name of Jesus Christ!
But how do you secure your future?
It takes a fight and watchfulness (vigilance) to secure the glorious future God has for you. A fight? You might say. Yes! Just as you know that God designed a glorious future for you, the devil also knows. The devil is enviable of your destiny? He knows that the future of every redeemed of God is colourful and splendid, so he contends with us day and night in order to distract us from achieving it.
The Bible says: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world (1 Peter 5:8-9).
One of the ways you can fight is to:
Accept Responsibility by Partnering with God: For everyone who desires success, responsibility is a must. Responsibility here means that you make it a duty/must to fulfil God’s plan for you. Fulfilling your glorious future doesn’t come by wishing, it will only be achieved by working it out with the help of God through obeying His Word. It is written:
For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God (Hebrews 3:4).
Every glorious future requires the involvement of man for it to be built and secured; even though in the ultimate God is the builder of all things and without Him all of man’s effort equals nothing. Partnering with God to ensure the reality of that glorious future God has in store for you begins with your right standing with God.
That comes by accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life. If you are not born again, or have withdrawn from your confession to make Jesus the Lord and Saviour of your life, your future is at a risk. Secure it now by saying this prayer in faith:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
