A few months ago, I joined some groups on writing and personal development, just to improve my writing skill and personal development.
After reading so many posts, I begin to feel I don’t write well enough for people to engage in my posts. Therefore, I begin to copy their style of writing in which most of them are just motivational and not inspirational.
So I begin to struggle with writing and I felt unfulfilled not until I discovered that God was not at the center of my posts again. I have not fulfilled the purpose in which God has called me into writing.
God has called me into writing to preach good tidings unto the meek, he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
Until I went back to the reason why I need to write, I was struggling.
So many are struggling in business, career, relationship, and fulfilling purpose because God is not at the center of it.
The motive behind a thing determines how successful it’s going to be.
The more you keep doing it all by yourself without God, the more you keep struggling.
The moment you remove God from what you do, the moment it begins to crumble.
God should be the center of all that you do.
Before you begin a project, ask yourself the following questions;
Who do I want to glorify with this project? Am I doing it for God to be glorified or am I doing it for fame or money?
If you are doing it for God to be glorified, then God is the center of it.
John said, “He must increase, but I must decrease”. John 3: 30.
Can you also allow Jesus to increase and you decrease?
Can you allow Jesus to be seen rather than you been seen?
God has called you into that career so that he can be glorified. He has called you to be a Doctor, Nurse, Engineer, teacher, a Writer, an Accountant, a Lawyer, and so on so that you can glorify Him.
The Bible says; ” Commit thy way into the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass”.
All that you desire, the Lord shall bring it to pass if only you can commit it into His hands.
Without God, you can do nothing!
Are you struggling to make that relationship work? Commit it into the hands of God and He will direct your steps.
Today, I only write when God inspires me to write. At times, I will have to look up a word in the dictionary when I write a particular word to be sure if it was right and behold it is right when I checked. This is because it was God Himself making me write His mind for His people.
Which area of your life are you struggling to achieve success?
Just think about it and check, if God is really at the center.
You cannot lead a meaningful life if you don’t make God the subject matter of your life.
A song says;
At the center of it all, it’s you that I see…..
Who are you seeing in that situation you are passing through?
Are you seeing God or that situation itself?
You can only overcome when you see God in that situation.
Above all, let God be the center of your life.
