This write-up is set up with an intention of inspiring and releasing you into living a fulfilled life. It is intended to break your vision barrier and set you up to run like a mad man. In the words of Myles Munroe, “Don’t just live life; live it in such a way that you finish life before you die.” To live short of the expectations God has placed upon your life is to be short-lived. Life is meant to be lived to the full, it is meant to be finished, it is meant to be remarkable, is meant to give you the platforms and opportunities to release the full deposit of your life.
Just like a manufacturer who manufactures a product with a purpose in mind, you exist with an original intent in the mind of your Creator, and with great deposits to unleash. God created you and deposited you with potentials! And you must begin to look inward, discover that reality and be ready to make your life fulfill that purpose of your existence. And for you to fulfill your life, you must live in such a way you finish up your life before you die. That is why you should make up your mind not just to live SMART, but to live HARD.
Many years ago a striking parable was given by a man whose impact has stayed through many generations. He is Jesus Christ. He said something very striking; Here is what He said, “A certain man was about to take a journey, he called his servants together and entrusted them with his possessions; to one he gave five talents; to another, two; and to another, one; each according to his own ability, and then he went on his journey. The one who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made a profit and gained five more, likewise the one who had two made a profit and gained two more. But the one who received one went and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. Now after a long time, the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.” (See Matthew 25:14-30). Each one of those servants gave account of how they had used those talents; the one who did not maximized his talent – who went and hid his master’s money without any investment – had a terrible reward!
Every deposit made into us has a purpose to make in creation and our life is useless without fulfilling those purposes. It is important to note that living ‘half’ of our purpose for life is being short-lived. Somewhere in the scriptures, we find it written “Occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13). It’s a striking phrase.
‘Occupy’ there means “Do business, take advantage, take charge, be useful, be profiting, maximize all that you could ever be”. It is a very important phrase to ponder. Life is a lot more serious, and enshrined in it are assignments we will be accountable for. It is more than just gaining satisfaction, it places a demand on us to be fully productive, touch lives and be all that we were created to be.
You were not created to just do jobs, you were created to work out and release all you are capable of being. And if you are living less of yourself right now, you have to pause and stop all the activities taking your time and look inward to see what your life is all about. Until you find out about your life, you will simply be flip-flopping through life, doing things you were not supposed to be doing.
You have a great potential inside you, you have to realize them. Then move on to maximize and fulfill the purpose of their deposits.
To MAXIMIZE means to fully expose the intent of a thing; it means to use something to the end of it; it means to make the most of something; it means to increase the worth of a thing to the highest possible degree.
You need God in your journey of life. Your life will be full of stops, distractions, experiments, regrets and lack of fulfillment without Him. The supernatural releases to you the force you need for flight and accomplishment. I want you to be put into alignment, and be challenged to step out into motion and keep pace with living a productive life.
Please know this:
YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.
See what Dr. Myles Munroe said, he said: “No man was born to live or die to himself. God gave you the wealth of your potentials – your gifts, talents, abilities, energies, creativity, ideas, aspirations, and dreams – for the blessing of others. You bear the responsibility of activating, releasing and maximizing this potential as a deposit for the next generation.”
Just like every other manufacturers, a Car manufacturer doesn’t just produce a car for the fun of it. Because of the desire to solve a certain problem the product would be built with solutions to the problem in mind and it would be wired with all the potentials needed to help it meet that demand. The manufacturer would ensure it is capable of handling the demands awaiting its arrival before it is released into the market place, and once it does, it is an assurance that the intention of the manufacturer will be carried out. Your Creator created you whole having in mind purpose to meet. You are a unique ‘you’ on planet earth, and you were made to fill and solve a certain need on the earth. You are an answer to a certain problem. When God created you, just like every other persons on earth, He had an intention He wanted to carry out through you. He preplanned your existence, where you would be born, who your parents would be, which Nation you would come from, which race you would come from and which skin type you would possess. You are not just another person; you are unique and you have a specific assignment to carry out here on earth before you die. At the end of life, what will matter will be if you lived your purpose, and not what kind of possessions of achievements you had.
All you need – the potentials you need – to make your existence worthwhile has been deposited in you.
