God has placed within each of us the potential and opportunity for success. Yes, it takes just as much effort to lead a bad life as it does a good life. Still, millions lead aimless lives in prisons of their own making—simply because they haven’t decided what to do with their lives. A lot of people confuse bad decision-making with destiny (Kin Hubbard).
“Where there is no vision, the people perish,” says Proverbs 29:18. That’s not God’s plan for you. Dissatisfaction is not the absence of things but the absence of vision. It always costs more not to do God’s will than to do it.
When you are an original and know God’s plan, you shine like the stars of the firmament. Copies are like the darkness in which they float. You can predict a person’s future by his awareness of his destiny. Life’s heaviest burden is to have nothing to carry. The significance of any person is determined by the cause for which he lives and the price he is willing to pay. What you set your heart on will determine how you spend your life.
Do not take lightly the dreams and hopes God has given for your life. Cherish them, for they are like children birthed within you. “It is better to die for something that it is to live for nothing,” says Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. A man without principle never draws much interest.
No wind blows in favor of a ship without destination. A person without conviction is like a ship without a rudder. People generally have too many opinions and not enough convictions. God plants no yearning in you that He does not intend to satisfy. We all distrust our hearts too much and our heads not enough. As long as God’s direction is your friend, don’t worry about your enemies. It is not the man with a motive but the man with a purpose who prevails. “Every man’s destiny is his life preserver” (The Sunday School).
