Timely discovery for making accomplishment
In the making of stars, times and seasons are very fundamental. In the rising of stars times and seasons are very vital. For every thing under the sun, there is a time and a season for every purpose under heaven. When a farmer misses his farming season, he have to wait for another time. Unfortunately we don’t have the next one for it is appointed unto man to die but once. You need the understanding of times to gain command of your destiny. Just like it was said about the sons of Isaachar in 1chron: 12:32 “these are they that had understanding of the times and their brethren were at their command.” When you lack understanding of the time, you will plant anyhow and at anytime only to discover you have disinvested your energy because the time for it has gone. This is to steer up your time consciousness in the pursuit of destiny.
1cor: 9:24-26 “No ye not that they which run in a race run all,
But one recieveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.
Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown? But we an incorruptible.
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight not as one that beateth the air.”
Not every runner ends up a prize, there is a race set before each of us. There is a star in each ones destiny, whether that star actualize or not is dependant on many factors. Understand what it mans to be a star in your race. Be certain about your race. Get to know wheat you are here to do.
Have you met any man who has retired from civil service for instance before embarking on professional footballer. The season for him in professional football has passed. It is impossible for him to be enlisted talk of emerging a star. Have you met a professor who has just retired Form University and is now out to enlist as a professional athlete to run 100 meters race or run 500 meters race. It’s already late. The age of enlistment has passed. These are not things you can enlist after certain season in your life. You are no longer eligible for enlistment after a particular season of your life.
There is a season for enlistment and when you miss that season, you can’t regain it. At a particular age the best you can do is to make a living and you can’t make an impact. There are multitudes in the world making a living, only few are making an impact, these are the ones that are called stars.
Almost every celebrity in the world today got to know where they belong on time and they stock there. No one ever gets up late and become a star. There is a conference that was held, an international conference and the assistant coordinator for united state of that conference was a boy of 21yrs old, and the second person was 23yrs old. If you think that you are still a kid, and you are kidding, you will end up in the kitchen. No one will enlist 40yrs old in a boxing contest. They will scatter him. You can have it as a hobby but not as a profession.
Timely discovery is the only security for your stadium. You need a timely discovery, early to bed, early to rise. And early to rise, early to shine. John Dell of the Dell corporation became the president of that corporation at the age of 19 and retired at the age of 40. Men like Kenneth .E. Hagin, Oral Roberts, they all got on their feet in their teens, 18 &19. most Africans live to make a living only few live to make an impact because they are late risers. At the age of 19, they should not be pushing you around because your mates are already presidents of corporations in other parts of the world. You are getting too old for a star. Get up on your feet and make your moment count. We are in a race and not in a fun. The earlier you enlist in a race, the greater the possibility of your stadium. It’s not about handing around but about making life count on a visionary platform. You don’t have spare life strife to make the most of this only life you have. Those who don’t have spare tires don’t drive rough.
Every star in every generation has been an early riser. Jesus started at the age of 12. at the age of 12, he was already in the conscious of his mission. By the age of 30, the king Ascended the throne. It was at the age of 17 that Joseph got his dream. Joseph was operating in the consciousness of his vision. Even when Potipher wanted to pull him down he said no I know where am going. When he was thirty, he became the prime minister. He knew that the prison was only a passage to the palace. Life is not all about laughing and yelling, life is a business. You are either recording losses or you are making profit. If you are 17 and you still don’t have a bearing for your destiny, you are already walking behind schedule. You need to wake up. Life without a bearing is a big burden.
According to scriptures, you are to enlist in the race latest at twenty. Your twenties are your last season for enlistment. A vision at 50 is only a delusion. Vision is for young men. In boxing, we have feather weight, light weight and heavy weight. The heavy weights are the king of boxing who has graduated from feather to light and then heavy. You can’t say because your body is fat so you are a boxer. If those guys box you, your body will break into spare parts. You don’t have what it takes. You see the way they are been thrown up and down the ring and within a short while they still stand up just because their body has been used to it. No matter how anointed you are, you can’t be enlisted. If you are enlisted at all, it’s just to bury you. You must know where you are going now and keep going there.
There are authors and there are star authors, there are pastors and there are star pastors, there are evangelists and there are star evangelists, there are musicians and there are star musicians. Be not deceived for God is not mocked and whatsoever a man soweth that shall he reap. It is the quality of you investment is what determines your height of accomplishment. They don’t use mouth to do these things, they invest to accomplish it. If you are not in your vision fully, you will make a fool of yourself. Be there fully and you will make it full scale, be there and give it all it takes. A gymnastic said when you are training to be a star in gymnastics, you don’t have time for any other thing including yourself. Time must not run out on you, refuse to be a fan, you must be a major player and is by starting to play on time.
Wake up, don’t let anybody think you are a child, you are already over growing the age of vision and correct positioning. Wake up and recover your destiny. Farrah Gray became a billionaire at 14yrs and he was from a very poor family. At six, he was pioneering a business. Don’t let time run out on you. Let there be no fornicator around you or a profane person who is a joker, going nowhere and just taking anyhow. One of the benefits of vision is self discipline. You can’t know where you are going and can’t package yourself to arrive there. That’s why when they say your flight is leaving at so-so time, every other thing is under your control to meet that time. You leave your food behind to catch up with the flight. You can’t really have where you are going and can’t be committed to get there. Nelson Mandela said many years age as a child, he sat behind a small Baptist church in South Africa, it was in the heat of Apartheid and he said to himself, one day I will become the president of this people. What he saw in the prison didn’t kill him or his vision. Vision was living even thought the body was dying. You can’t have a vision without having endurance. Life is not all about what to possess but about what to impact, what to give not what to take, what to add and not what to receive. Package your life to benefit humanity. Locate where you belong and live your life there.
Lets look at a story of a late riser in song of Solomon 5:2-7 “I sleep but my heart waketh, it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh saying open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled for my head is filled with dew and my locks with the drop of the night. I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them? My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door and my bowels were moved for him. I rose up to open to my beloved and my hands dipped with myrrh and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh upon the handle of the lock. I opened to my belove but my beloved hid withdrawn himself, and was gone. My soul failed when he spake. I sought him but I could not find him. I called him but he gave me no answer. The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me, the keepers of the walls took away my vell from me. He lost his star and respect because he got up late. Wake up and take responsibility.
