You cannot overlook the small in your quest for greatness because greatness is the accumulation of small great deeds. Be prepared to start small. Be prepared to start from somewhere. You are destined for greatness.
If God has chosen you to be great, the only way to prevent it is to do nothing! Because even your mistakes or the things you didn’t expect to lead you to greatness somehow does. One thing leads to the other, the other leads to another. You are destined for greatness.
How much you want it is determined by how much you are willing to pay for it.
You don’t cut off your manhood because it tempts you, you ask God to help you control it! Every great man needs followers and it is these same followers who sometimes create problems for him. So if you are called to greatness, ask God for wisdom to manage people.
If you are looking for destiny, look for what stirs you up. Look at where your passion lies. Ask Samson and he will tell you the Philistines.
If you are praying to be great, remember to also pray that God should also teach you how to handle people. Because you can’t be great without followers or people. People can mess you up and people can lift you up. So you need wisdom to handle people. The same fire that burns our stuff cooks our food.
The three wise men When you are called to discover greatness, usually God tells you about the place but doesn’t show you the place. All you have to do is to follow the signs. A sign is never the real stuff but an indication and a direction to the real stuff. God expects us to trust him by the signs. If we will have faith and follow the signs that he gives us, it will lead us to the real stuff. Like it led the three wise men to Jesus who was born in a manger. They will also lead you to the greatness to which you have been called. You are destined for greatness!
I know I have what it takes to become, but whether I am willing to pay the price to become is the issue. Greatness is a choice.
