Seeds Of Destiny For Today 2024 MESSAGE:

It has been confirmed that the top is our place in life. We are a city set on a hill.

However, this is not the case with many Christians because they do not want to embrace the discipline of excellence.

You see, while ordinary and average students sleep all through the night, distinction students are awake, studying their books. They squeeze and stretch themselves to arrive at their goals.

Also, while normal pastors sleep or eat every morning, noon and night, outstanding pastors put themselves under the pressure of prayer, fasting and study of the Word of God to see results.

The truth is, you cannot reach your destiny until you stretch your potentials by discipline.

As an outstanding personality, you must come to a point where you can feel real pressure – pressure of work, pressure of study, pressure of research, pressure of prayer, pressure of worship, pressure of fasting. You place more demands on yourself than the average person. That is the way of excellence.

If you understand the training of an eagle, then you will understand what it means to stretch yourself. An eaglet is always on top of the nest some 10,000 feet above sea level. The mother eagle would fly out every day to bring food for it to eat.

But one day, the mother eagle would decide to subject the eaglet to training. So, she tears the net housing the eaglet and throws the eaglet to the ground from the height of 10,000 feet above sea level. The eaglet falls from that height and when it is about to crash to the ground, the mother eagle will fly and stretch herself and catches the eaglet, puts it on her back, and takes her up again to a great height. She repeats the same training several times until the eaglet discovers how to stretch out its wings to fly.

After that, the eaglet can now fly and fend for itself. The mother eagle must subject the eaglet to this kind of pressure to prepare it for both flight and fearless adventure in life.

Beloved, if you refuse to put yourself under pressure, life will put you under pressure. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: If you refuse to put yourself under pressure, life will put you under pressure.

ASSIGNMENTS:
