A Christian that will manifest his or her destiny must switch from the mentality that is always seeking miracles to the responsibility mentality. The one with the miracle mentality is one that says, “I am a baby. God is doing something for me” while the one with the responsibility mentality says, “I am grown up. God is doing something with me and through me. There is something I need to do for God to do something.’’
In moving from a miracle mentality to responsibility consciousness, you need to ask regularly, “What am I responsible for?” What are the things for which I will give account to God?” God has appointed a divine destiny to you, just as it has been appointed to everyone but you have the responsibility to fulfil it and on the final day, when you stand before the father, you will give account for it.
Many Christians are transferring their responsibility to others but no one ever told them they will need to give account very soon. This is the time for you to catch God’s vision for your life, clarify that vision, write important details down and start running. Great people make the important decisions in their life early and then spend the rest of their lives managing those decisions. You need to make important decisions about what God wants you to be and do in partnership with Him.
Age thirty is the age of destiny and everyone who had something to do in the programme of God as recorded in the Bible were already stepping into the waters of their destiny at that age and not just trying to find out. They started fulfilling destiny by age thirty at the maximum. If you calculate how many years you still have before you are thirty, those are the only years you can still afford to waste in irresponsibility but if you are thirty years or older, you should not live irresponsibly any longer because it will cost you much more than it did in the past. You cannot afford to play games or sit at ease in a place where the pastor is making you feel at ease instead of sensitizing you to your divine schedules.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive fresh baptism of the sense of appointment, responsibility and accountability for the destiny that God has for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
