Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes - Isaiah 54:2
It is dangerous when people stop doing because of the little achievement they have. Life is a race and you have to run to be successful. If you want more than you are getting, do more than you are doing. No one gets promoted until he gets over- qualified for the present assignment. Don't think no one knows or sees you; men may not know or see you but God who sees you will reward you. For the retiree, don't assume you are too old to do anything; create things for yourself. Don't be tired of life, live for a purpose. If you desire to have a future, do more.
Life is not fair to anyone; you have to give life a fight. The rich man in Luke chapter 12 was called foolish because he lived for today and didn't consider tomorrow. He became complacent simply because he thought he had gotten it all. (Luke 12:19-20).
Don't stop going in life; don't settle down for the average. If God has planned for you the best, why settle for the less? The way to know you are growing is that the more you know, the more you think you don't know. Those who think they know don't actually know but those who think they don't know are the ones who really know - that is life.
Life is more than living to eat; you have not really lived until you have lived for others. In the olden days, a man that has few thousands of currency will be considered a very rich man but things have changed now. Life is changing and you also need to upgrade yourself. (see Isaiah 54:2). Don't look for small things thinking its humility. Look for big things and dream big. If you don't desire big things for yourself, for the sake of others do so. If you think you don't need it, someone near you will; so, make people happy by being a blessing. There is no way you can do more, and your glory will be covered up.
Prayer: Lord, help me to put my trust in you totally and draw nearer to you on daily basis, in Jesus Name.
