Are your cylinders firing well?
Each one of us is created and loaded with the potential needed to fulfill our God-ordained purpose(s) in life. Amazingly, looking around, it will be observed that a larger percentage of this perfect work of God are enduring life rather than enjoying it and not fulfilling their days as promised by their Creator (Exodus 23:26). This category of people can be likened to an automobile that has some or none of its cylinder’s firing. It implies that these people will be stagnant or crawling when they are structured and equipped for running or flying. They are failing to achieve their original intent. Purpose! These are creatures fully certified as good by God after creation (Genesis 1:31). Then, something must have gone wrong.
Do you belong to this group of people or not sure? Respond to the following questions with utmost sincerity, though, not exhaustive but adequate.
Are you enjoying life or at least enjoying where you are?
Do you have inner peace or peace of mind?
Are your priorities right?
Are you feeling like you have wasted time and thus wasted life?
Do you experience being full rather than being fulfilled?
If you are not satisfied with life, then certain things need to be adjusted, corrected or changed. The focus and direction of your life need changes, a re-orientation must happen.
Do you know what?
It is never too late for you to get hold of your world! No matter your age, gender, location, and the opportunities you might have missed or lost, there is still an avenue for you to put your life on the right track and be who God wants you to be. Like we used to say in our college days; “This is the right time for catching up”. There is always a time for catching up, making up, and making the best out of life.
Most importantly, there is always what to do: be in the right frame of mind (Proverbs 23:7), have a correct assessment of your present situation, be ready to leave the old way(s), embrace the new way(s) and be disciplined in your approach. Remember, you can't keep doing things the same way and expect a different outcome. It is never too late to change, change is inevitable, and most importantly, make sure it is the right change.
Friends, NOW is the right time to get back on the right track and fire all your cylinders accordingly.
Jesus Christ is Lord
