So I Cried (2)

Myles Munroe, 48 Boys killed in a Bomb Blast, many birthdays being celebrated, many challenges in the world today. Is there any connection between all of these events?

The answer to that question is a resounding YES!

When people do not rise up to fulfill the purpose for which they were sent for on earth, evil will thrive. When I say evil, I am not talking about ‘witches’. Evil represents things going on wrong in the world in Industry, Family, Religious Circles, Education, Media, Arts/Entertainment and Government.

I would like to break this down for you…

Purpose is a fulfillment of God’s plan for your life which in turn is an answer to man’s heart’s cry to God for a solution.

See, God is Good and He is a great planner. He is aware of every detail required for peace & prosperity to reign on earth and so He carefully prepares a person to be a light (solution) to challenges He sees that mankind will face.

God has played His part; the question is if Men & Women will play theirs.

Birthdays are not only meant to be a celebration of existence but should be a reminder of the reason for our existence.

As your age goes up, your time on earth goes down.

The time you have is just sufficient to fulfill the reason for your existence.

One of Dr Myles Munroe’s greatest joy will be to see the person(s) sent to solve the insurgency issues in Nigeria rise to the occasion. His joy is actually a reflection of God’s desire.

Remember, in fulfilling your purpose, there is Wealth, Recognition, Promotion, Preservation and many other things we desire in it.

Become conscious that you were sent to this world. You matter now and that is why you were sent now.

If you can, get a copy of Dr Munroe’s book, ‘In Pursuit of Purpose’, it will help you greatly.

Today is another opportunity to pursue your purpose, GO FOR IT!

I celebrate you.

  1. Reblogged this on Baulah's Blog and commented:
    A statement that jumped at me from this writ is “When people do not rise up to fulfill the purpose for which they were sent for on earth, evil will thrive.”

    Friends let’s stop these evils around us by living up to our potential!

    Read more about Jimi’s wise words…

  2. Again, you sound like the proverbial ostrich…just that, instead of a hole, you are hiding your head in all these illogical contraptions instead for us stare the fact of the matter in the eye…but it’s OK, just like the ostrich, if you keep your head wrapped up in these contraption, everything makes sense and you feel safe.

    So you said “When people do not rise up to fulfil the purpose for which they were sent for on earth, evil will thrive…” Me and you can agree that Myles Munroe, a “man of God” dying in an air plane crash at the age of 60, together with his wife is a terrible thing to have happened…so I take a queue from your argument, and I ask “who did not raise to fulfil the purpose that they were sent for on earth that lead to this happening?” Myles Munroe himself? The Pilot? Or some long lost cousin somewhere? I don’t know…please tell

    Or maybe just accept that it does not add up….

    and then you said “See, God is Good and He is a great planner. He is aware of every detail required for peace & prosperity to reign on earth and so He carefully prepares a person to be a light (solution) to challenges He sees that mankind will face.

    God has played His part; the question is if Men & Women will play theirs.”

    The interesting thing about religious escapism is how we make excuse for God…if something good happens we give him all the accolade: it is not by our might, but the blessing and grace of God we say, but if something bad happens? well it can never be due to this our God…he has done his part…it must be due to the fact that Men and Women did not play theirs…

    Think about it.

    We use the metaphor of Father and son a lot to communicate our God’s love for us. The prodigal son as an instance is a classic example of using the Father-Son relationship to communicate forgiveness and undying love…I would also use the Father-Son metaphor and please tell if this parable makes sense…

    A Father, lets say by the name Jimi Tewe has a beautiful house with all the good things of life…food, drinks etc. And this father has a son by the name Ayomikun and also a sister. And this Father told the son that he can eat of everything and anything in the house, as a loving Father would to his loving son. He only just told him that he should be careful with the sweet things because too much of it could lead to sickness…But as young children are, Ayomikun likes to eat the St Luis Sugar cubes, because well they are sweet. But eating too much of the sugar would obviously make him sick. But his Father, instead of stopping him from eating too much sugar decided to stand and look and say to himself…I have done my part, I instructed my son about sugar…not only that, when the son got sick, he also made sure that his sister got sick too!!!

    Won’t you call the Father an irresponsible Father? It is funny how we are not taking the Father-Son metaphor we are quick to use to describe our relationship with God to a explain a lot of things in this life 🙂 No we wont..it would lead to very discomforting conclusions (or open up hard questions), and we humans generally like to feel safe, so we construct our ideologies, and we hide our heads in them…like the proverbial ostrich 🙂

    By the way, Myles Munroe won’t be the only person to die in a plane crash in recent times. The CEO of TOTAL recently died too http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29699733 and oh well you wont argue he fulfilled purpose like God wanted him (or you would?), at least he had a lot of “Wealth, Recognition, Promotion…” Oh wait, how come? he does not even share your religious believes?!

    Maybe you should try and re-evaluate a lot of truism around us…

    By the way, I am not surprised that you did not allow my comment on your “other” post to show. It is what we do when we do not want to confront inconvenient facts

  3. @Jide,so many questions that sound philosophical. You sound opinionated and I like that,just that it came like attacking the writer(personal opinion though). Well well… “All things”,(good or bad) work out for good for God’s children(Romans 8:28) He’s a God of plan and purpose.

    In all of these God is sovereign and He can not be questioned by anyone and I mean “anyone”. I’m not speaking for Him because He can speak for Himself..

    You don’t have to accept what Dr. Myles Munroe or Mr. Tewe wrote,k? But God created all for a purpose.
