What do we need to carry safely to our port of destination, every man’s life being spend on earth as a tale that is told oh for all our days are passed away in thy wrath oh yes we spend our years as a tale that is told (Ps. 90:9-10), a very soon cut off life and we fly away oh very short time we have here on earth therefore repent from pursuing worldly ambition.

Why do you want to wicked someone to get (make) money in this evil world? oh life is brief yes life is like a shadow for we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our father: our days on earth are as a shadow and there is none abiding (1 Chro. 29:15) all the days of man’s life Spendeth as a shadow? oh, all his days is vain life so why do you want to fail to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord, God and Savior Today: because our days are swifter than a weaver: shuttle and are spent without hope (Job 7:6) except you be born oh I say except you be born of water and of the spirit… . except you again repent, except you eat/drink Jesus flesh-Blood or all ye shall likewise perish can’t you repent from Worldly ambition and stop worrying yourselves life is like hurrying messenger (Job 9:25), oh our days are swifter than a post; they flee away, they see no good because man that is born of woman is of few days, and full of trouble (Job 14:1-2) he cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down; he fleeth also as a shadow, and contiuneth not. oh as far man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field. (Ps. 103:15) for the wind passeth over it, and it is gone, and the place therefore shall know it no more Ps. 103:18 for a man shall die (lsa. 51:12) and the son of man which shall be made as grass in the morning it flourisheth, and Groweth up in the evening it is cut down, and withereth (Ps. 90:6) for all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass, the grass withereth, and the flower there of falleth away 1 Pet. 1:24 the grass withereth, the flower fadeth because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it, surely the people is grass oh all the success of Solomon in all his glory was not arranged like grass of the field means grass is more glory than Solomon so why do you want to perish because of the vain glory oh yes our days here on earth is only a handbreadth in extent and our age as nothing oh man everyman at his best state is altogether vanity, that would soon be cut off like a weaver’s web (Isa. 38:12] all your success and beauty here on earth is like a vanishing vapor. What is your life? it is even a vapour that appeareth, why do you want to perish because of all the vainglory as like a vanishing vapor whereas ye know not what shall bee on the morrow success a like weaver’s web beauty as like a flying shuttle riches as like a shadow shelter. Oh everything a like hurrying messengers that soon that is why bible command us not to love the world and all things that are in it (1 John 2:15-17) repent from the sins of loving the world even the things that are in the world which are the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. oh don’t agree to die second death so don’t toil and moil always for 3/5 man’s need.

FIRST: 3 first man’s need– lust of eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life.

SECOND: 5 Second man’s need — 1. self actualization, 2. esteem need, 3. Social need, 4. security and 5. psychological need.
Why do you agree to get these 3/5 man’s need and lost Jesus Christ the LORD and the savior kingdom, oh you can only seek Jesus kingdom and reject all
3/5 man’s need 3/5 Hierarchy of man’s need (Matt. 6:33). Luke 14:26.

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of the Almighty Jesus Christ the LORD and the savior is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel. (Mark. 1:15). i.e Birth, Death, Burial, Resurrection, coming back again and His everlasting fathership.

The time is fulfilled for blotting out of the old covenant (Col. 2:14-17). and making and sealing of the new covenant (2Cor. 3:6-15). (Gal. 3:13-25), (Heb. 7:11-28), (Heb. 8:6-10), (Heb. 10:1-18), (Eph. 2:14-18), (Matt. 26:28).

Jesus is the one LORD God (I Cor. 8:6), (John 20:28, Mark 12:29).
Jesus is the LORD God (Luke 2.11).

WHEN YOU ARE DEPRESSED

DON’T MAKE THINGS WORSE THAN THEY ARE

You must never worry about whether you are lucky or unlucky.

You can’t control your luck, but you can control your decisions and therefore dramatically, affect your luck. Our attitude or state of mind determines the decisions we make. One decision determines the next. In the end we either lose or win. A possibility thinker says, “It may be difficult, bit is possible “. An impossibility mind says, “it may be possible, but it is too difficult”. So, be positive to win the race

You can also embrace these things:

  1. Listen to godly music
  2. Read an encouraging book
  3. Trust and obey
  4. Stand firm Eph. 6:10-18
  5. Do not murmur
  6. Cast your case upon Him 1Pet. 5:7
  7. Be not be troubled trouble 1Pet. 3:14
  8. Pray fervently 1Thess. 5:17, Mark 1:35
  9. Don’t accept evil destiny / fate 1Kings 3:21, 27, 1chro. 4:9-10
  10. Present your case before God. 2Chro. 20:3, 4, 20

You might have exhausted your human strength and skill while combating crisis of life, you, may not know what to do in your prevailing predicament situation, but I assure you total victory by His grace. A life without Christ cannot have victory, Christ makes the difference.

KNOWING AND FULFILLING GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE

TEXT: JEREMIAH 29:11-14

INTRODUCTION
Knowing your purpose in life can be one of the most elusive things in life and very difficult to define. For many, knowing their purpose means being successful. It may seem that when you reach the place you have defined as success, it was not success at all. When this life is over, we will find that success is simply the fulfilling of God’s plans for your life. Ultimately, success for the Christians is fulfilling God’s plan for our lives and when this life is over, hearing “well done my good and faithful servant”.

HOW TO KNOW GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE
(JOSEPH (GEN. 37:5-9) AND DANIEL (DAN. 1:8,6))
Here are some of the ways by which one can know God’s purpose for his life :-

SEEK GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART (1 KINGS 8:61): For you to know the purpose of God for your life, you need to seek Him with all your heart by following and keeping His commands.

PRAY MUCH ABOUT IT TILL IT IS REVEALED TO YOU (1 CHRONICLES 4:10): Only the prayer life will invite God’s presence and God’s will brings an anointing. It is through knowing God in prayer that He is able to touch man’s condition and give wonderful divine revelations.

IDENTIFY YOUR GIFTS (PROVERBS 18:16): To accomplish the purpose of God in your life, God gives that will help you. So identify your gifts and talents to identify the purpose of God for your life. To identify your gifts and talents, (a) identify those things you are interested in, (b) the things you would naturally do with ease (c) the things you do with the purpose of God for one’s life. (1 Sam. 17:38-40).

THINK DEEP (DANIEL 1:8): To fulfill one’s purpose, you need to think deeper than your mates.

SOME TIPS TO FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE (1 SAMUEL 17:26-40)
Don’t underestimate your potential (vs 32-37)
Never throw away an idea just because it seems impossible to you. Give it a chance (vs 38)
Never underestimate the value of an idea. Every positive idea has within it the potential for success if it is managed properly (vs 33)
There is nothing wrong with every good idea. Therefore never reject an idea because you won’t get the credit! God can do tremendous things through the person who doesn’t care about who get the credit (vs 37)
When you are committed to serving, God is committed to blessing you (vs 37)
Never give up believing for it is your faith that will give you the breakthrough you need (vs 37a)
There are those who add to your life, and there are those who subtract from it. Pay attention to those who add to you (vs 28-30)
God does not relate with a man except on the basis of a covenant. Pay attention to your covenant with God and make sure that you are faithful to it (vs 45-47)
You need good-willed people to get to where you are going. Learn to nurture and keep relationships that are clean and rewarding (vs 37)
Respect other people’s feelings and your feelings will be respected (vs 31)
Take a step (vs 40,48-49)

CONCLUSION
For the divine purpose of God to be fulfilled in your life, take note of the things that run through your mind, the things that give you concern, the likely contribution that God wants you to make to the society. Everyone is created to contribute something to the society. The scripture says “you are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by man (Matthew 5:13 NIV).

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT.

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit."-Gal. v: 25.

What is it to Live in the Spirit?

It is to be born of the Spirit. It is to have received a new spiritual life from above. "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit. "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God." "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." We may have the brightest intellectual life, the most unblemished moral character, and the most amiable qualities of disposition, and yet without the new life of the Holy Spirit in our heart, we can no more enter Heaven than the lovely canary that sings in our window can become a member of our family, or the gentle lamb that our children play with can sit down at our table, and share our domestic fellowship and enjoyment. It belongs to a different world, and nothing but a new nature and human heart could bring it into fellowship with our human life. The most exalted intellect, and the
most attractive, natural disposition, reach no higher than the earthly. The Kingdom of Heaven consists of the family of God, those who have risen to an entirely different
sphere, and received a nature as much above the intellectual and the moral as God is above an angel.

DOING THE WORK OF GOD FAITHFULLY!

You can move mountains by faith. You can heal the sick, preach the gospel and raise the dead. You can have continuous victories by faith. Strength lies in how much maturity you demonstrate in your life through the influence of God’s Word. Faith will make you a champion. When you study the Faith’s Hall of Fame in Hebrews Chapter 11, you will notice all the amazing works that were done by men and women who acted by faith. You can do the same when faced with a challenge or a need. God has given to everyone the measure of faith (Romans 12:3)
“Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had
promised. Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. Women received their dead raised to life again: and
others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:” (Hebrews 11:11-12,31,35)
You can make a world of difference when you act
on God’s Word. Begin today by writing down your plans for
your place of worship. Know what you will do in the house of God this year. Know what you would like to accomplish in your Church, group meetings, home and at your place of work. Desire spiritual promotion! When you are busy with God’s work and His Word you will not have time for lesser things and because your mind is occupied with God, He will
make your life worth living. Desire spiritual gifts and spiritual results. He says, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6).

PEOPLE WHO AVOID FAILURE INEVITABLY AVOID SUCCESS

PEOPLE WHO AVOID FAILURE INEVITABLY AVOID SUCCESS

History tells us that while attempting to invent the incandescence light bulb, Thomas Edison, the world famous American Inventor, failed 10,000 times.

After 5,000 failed experiments, his laboratory attendant said to him; “Mr. Edison, we have failed 5,000 times, shouldn’t we stop?” Mr. Edison replied; “Son, we have not failed 5,000 times, we have only discovered 5,000 ways in which it cannot work. We are closer to the solution now than when we started.”

Success is the achievement of predetermined goals. But how do you respond when things do not go the way you planned? Do you feel discouraged and depressed? Does it make you want to quit? Everybody wants to succeed, no one wants to fail. However, our knowledge of success cannot be complete without knowing how to handle failure.

Successful people see failure as a stepping stone, not a stumbling block. They have the right attitude that failure will neither be fatal nor final. They refer to their failure as “learning experiences” or “temporary setbacks”.

On the other hand, unsuccessful people are usually those who are so afraid of failure and rejection that they spend their lives avoiding the risks that could result in failure. They do not realize that those who avoid failure inevitably avoid success.

Don’t be afraid to fail. Success will not come without you taking a risk.

Don’t let what you have done label you negatively. That you failed an interview, an examination or a sales pitch does not make you a failure. Who you are is different from what you have done.

Don’t say to yourself; “I am a failure” just because things did not work out right. If you do that, you have internalized your failure. If you allow failure to get into your heart, it will follow you everywhere.

A key thing to note is that failure is usually a sign that you need to change something. If things are not working, something is out of place.

Be willing to make adjustments prayerfully. Just a small change can result in an outstanding breakthrough.

Always remember that failure is not peculiar to you. Most successful people can write volumes on how not to succeed. They have tried many things that did not work. However, the world has not recognized them for the many ventures in which they failed. No. They have been recognized for the few areas in which they have achieved outstanding success.

Dear friend, as you travel on the road to success, you will have challenges. If you get knocked down, are you going to give up and stay down, wallowing in your defeat? Or are you going to get back on your feet as quickly as you can? You can use failure as a springboard to success.
