October 16, 2020 Seeds Of Destiny Devotional : Topic – Deciding And Stretching To Reach Your Destiny
Topic: Deciding And Stretching To Reach Your Destiny
You may not reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
SCRIPTURE: Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. 2 Kings 4:35
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You may not reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
It has been confirmed that decision, especially the decision to stretch yourself is key to destination; decision determines destiny.
Take a look at this illustration: An energetic young man may have the ability to do only ten push-ups at a stretch without getting tired when he is not under any stress. But if he decides to join the military and goes for military recruitment training, a military officer may ask him to do many more number of push-ups as part of the requirements for the recruitment. After just 15 push-ups, he may get tired and decide to relax. The military officer would shout at him and threaten to send him home if he failed to do up to 50 push-ups or above. Now, by the time this young man realises the circumstance he finds himself, even though his body could no longer carry him to do the push-up, his mind would continue the push-up. He wouldn’t be aware of how his body moves up and down. In fact, he wouldn’t know when he hits the required push-up mark.
Now this is what happened: his mind was adjusted by the information he got and his body simply complied with it.
Understand this: The capacity of the human mind is infinite. But you cannot get the best of the mind until you force it by stretching it to work. You may not reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
Remember this: You may not reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
- Decide to stretch yourself in order to reach your destiny.
- Determine never to run away from the rigorous and the unusual in order to realise destiny.
- Tap the treasures of your mind by putting it to work.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to stretch myself and reach my destiny. Help me to realize the potentials You have put inside me by putting my mind to work Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
