SCRIPTURE: Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Arriving too soon is arriving too small. When you reach the peak, you are set for the pit.
Sometime ago, my wife and I travelled to China in connection with the construction of the Glory Dome. This was to ensure that we got the best of materials needed for the construction.
So, in the attempt to maintain quality or standard of materials at a very good cost, we decided to explore a major part of China and in the process, I learnt about China as a country.
Not too long ago, China was struggling as a Third World nation. China was far behind Japan and America in terms of development.
Presently, going by what I saw while in China and the records available, there are countries that cannot be compared to China in terms of development. The economy of China is becoming a threat to the economy of America because of the rapidity of its growth.
The amazing thing is, the President of China told the people of China that every one of them should realize that they are still a Third World nation and that the mentality that they have arrived should not sink into their heads. What a mentality! No wonder they are where they are today.
Beloved, arriving too soon is arriving too small. When you reach the peak, you are set for the pit. The reason for the abortion of several destinies is the decision to conform to premature contentment. It does not matter your current level in life, as long as you are alive, there is still another level you can still attain.
REMEMBER THIS: Arriving too soon is arriving too small. When you reach the peak, you are set for the pit.
1. Refuse to arrive too soon.
2. Always stretch for more until you achieve your goal in life.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from premature contentment. I receive the grace to always stretch for more, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: POTENTIAL IS NOT ENOUGH.

REFLECTION: In our journey with God, there is still one more step, one more level, one more realm to access until we see the Master Face to face. Never stop until we see Him.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: May you not leave this world until you become everything that God has in mind for you to become in Jesus’ Name.
