Christianity is not an answer to mediocrity, it is not a calling to do little or average, rather it is an avenue to come up higher and win a prize. You are a regenerated star! You are born again as a wonder to your world. No matter the negative circumstances surrounding your birth and growth, none has an excuse to live under. The top is meant for you, and if so, let your thoughts align with the top. Those who become the subject of discussion in their generation are not mediocre, they are people who push through and soar both in life and ministry.
I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. Philippians 3:14.
Life is a race but unfortunately, not everyone is running, and sadly not every runner will end up with a prize. There is a way to run to obtain a prize in life, there is a mode to activate that delivers results both in life and ministry. You are born a star and coming to Christ gives you wings to fly, therefore if you fail to soar, it is your fault.
Acquire Right Knowledge
Knowledge is knowing beyond an edge. Every star in any generation that will manifest and soar on the earth must have a depth of knowledge beyond an edge. God knows all mystery Psalms 82:5. How mystical a deity is determined by the reverence it enjoys and until you know what is beyond the surface, your kingship is not revealed.
Divinity is revealed in humanity through an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. If you will scale through great height, it will not happen with the same depth of knowledge. Woe betide a man who is empty of knowledge the day the door of manifestation is opened unto him. Even as you take the stock of 2022, what depth of knowledge has been added and gained thus far? It will determine if you will ascend or not. Daniel 11:32. Your manifestation in life and ministry stops where your knowledge stops because you can’t manifest what you don’t know. How many books have you read this year in a field relevant to your destiny? Your answer is a pointer to your readiness for ascension.
Understand who you are. Don’t be a copycat, jack of all trades and master of none wouldn’t make you soar. Your identity gives you the picture of who you are, who you are informed what to do, what problem to solve, and what question to answer. There are problems or challenges in every nation of the world but then, your problem shouldn’t give you your identity, your identity should help you solve your problem. Until you find out who you are, and live by that understanding, you will never manifest who you are. Distractions abound everywhere, if you will not be lost in the crowd, you must maintain your identity 1 Samuel 17: 28-37.
Scriptures say, “Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men” Proverbs 22:29. Apostle Paul talked about pressing towards the goal. You don’t reach a goal you don’t press towards and pressing is not a lazy altitude, it requires diligence to press. If you will reach your goal, you need a great deal of push and press. What is your business on earth? What business did heaven think of that necessitated your conception? If that business will be achieved on earth, you must be diligent. Be hardworking, hard work does not kill, it makes. Be dutiful, be skillful, and do what you are sent to do with concerted effort and with excellence, that is the way to ascend, that is the way to fly. Ascending great height is not for lazy folks but men who are determined against all odds to reach their goals.
Build Healthy Relationships
Scripture says, Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17. You need people to fly. You are not ordained to do life all by yourself, God has put graces in men, and those you relate with certainly determine who you become. Who you relate with determines the height you can go. The iron sharpening your life determines your relevance. You need both quality and quantity of people to ascend in life. The attitude of self-sufficiency says, ‘I don’t need anybody’s mindset’ is nothing but pride and pride goes before a fall. Examine the relationships around you in your quest to ascend; are they relationships that can give you wings or the ones that will cut off your wings? This is the time to discard some relationships and cultivate new ones, strengthen existing ones and prepare for a glorious 2023.
