Do you know there are two ways to fail? One way to fail is to fail in something that will eventually succeed, that is a good failure. There are men that we call failures today who in generations to come will be celebrated as successes. The worst kind of failure is succeeding in something that will eventually fail and the bulk of human beings everyday are succeeding in something that will fail. Do you know what Jesus said about that? He said, “What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his own soul (Mark 8:36)?” When you stand before Jesus one day, He will not ask you how many degrees you obtained, as good as those things are, He will ask you if you did what He sent you to do. He will ask if what was invested inside you from heaven was released to mankind,
There is a divine purpose. One of the most dangerous things one can do is to neglect God’s intention for the creation of something and use it for another purpose. One of the places we do that terribly is the Church. There is nothing as out of line as saying that, “That is Oyedepo’s Church and that is Areogun’s Church.” There is nothing like that. It is blasphemy. I have defined Church severally in the past, Church is a divine gathering together of a pastor and a people by God for God. There are people who are pastors made by themselves and want to start a Church by themselves for themselves. So, they begin to gather people; that’s an empire. In another case, a group of Christians who found themselves in a location can see the need for a pastor so they employ one; that’s a cult. Church is always for God by God and for every person that God brings to the Church.
Divine purpose will only be realised when you are in place and on time. God sets every believer in Church with a God ordained pastor to make the journey into destiny easy and precise. You don’t need to settle down in ignorance trying to succeed in what will eventually fail. Review your Church membership and followership of your God ordained pastor today. If you will make it and finish your course, you must get it right in these areas.
Prayer: Father, I pray that you will put in me a divine dissatisfaction and loss of appetite for everything I am currently succeeding in that will eventually fail. Show me where I fit into your plan in Jesus’ name. Amen.
