You were Born for Greatness

Do you know you are born for greatness? There is no reason to settle for average or for anything less than excellent.

 “.. your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great” (Psalm 18:35). Greatness in not maybe or perhaps, there is an assurance that you are great because God has planned it to be so.  

” we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10). You are created as a masterpiece, God makes no mistakes and he is expecting you to live according to the good things he has planned for you.

There are a set of things you must do when you come to earth for whatever number of years you have. These include to have dominion, to multiply, to fill the earth and to prosper.


Time for everything

It is imperative to know the activities you are meant to be doing, when you should be doing them and how to do them, this clarity comes by connecting with God’s plans for your life. Remember you are a masterpiece programmed with a specific plan for your life. Our greatness is tied to God’s vision, God will spear nothing for you to be great.

If the God we serve is an excellent God why are we not being excellent? We should make it a habit to constantly ask God the why, when and how of our being great. Understand why you have been born at this time, why you have been given the talents and gifts you were born with. Seek to understand when you are meant to do the things you need to achieve your purpose.

Greatness is a gift but we must still earn it, you are not going to be great just because God said so and then think you are not meant to take any action. There are certain things you are required to do for your greatness to manifest into reality.

4 Things Required for Greatness

  • Perseverance
  • Accuracy
  • Focus
  • Timing

Greatness is a gift but we must earn it. You must persevere on the journey to greatness and overcome obstacles. You should strive to continue to do the things that you do with accuracy and focus. Be mindful of the right time to take advantage of opportunities and take certain actions necessary to remove any obstacles in your path. Sometimes obstacles can be as simple as the need to forgive, which can be a bottle neck to achieving greatness. Other times you need to take a step by asking for help.

Timing is very important in life and one of the most critical factors in ensuring your greatness is not limited. There is a time and season for everything, time to take action, to wait, to take advantage of opportunities, to pray, to forgive, to believe and many other moments. What is clear is that there are seasons for everything and no time is wasted.

1 For everything there is a season,
    a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
    A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
    A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
    A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
    A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
    A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
    A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
    A time for war and a time for peace.

(Ecc 3:1)

As you are born for greatness, remember that there is a time for everything and you cannot reverse time, it is better to take a step and have to retrace your steps than to sit doing nothing.
