Think About It

Written By: Charles Reese


Someone has said the trial does not make the man, it just reveals what the man is. The true heart is revealed when obstacles stand in the way of a person’s dream being fulfilled. God has given a man a mind that can think and solve problems, and a strong resolve to overcome obstacles in order to accomplish their God-given destiny.

It is when a person finds and settles on his purpose in life and finds the place that purpose is to be fulfilled, and purses his purpose with passion that one tastes the sweetness of true success. Other wise, life is just an existence

Mel Gibson’s character in the movie, “Braveheart” was confronted with a complaint that in the battle they were facing, “Some men will die.” His answer was, “All men die, but not all men live.” With that thought in mind, all men were given life, but not all men live. Jesus said 10:10,” … I am come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” Without Jesus, one can never know His will for their life, and therefore, cannot find true fulfillment. They will have missed their destiny.

The road to success is not just any road. It is a special road. It is not one of many roads, but it is The Road. Most of us have wasted many years of our lives going the wrong road. Then we wonder, “Are we there, yet? And, “How much farther?”

The truth is we will never arrive at our God-given destiny if we continue on the wrong road. Notice, I said, “continue.” All of us have spent time on the wrong road. It was only when we came to the conclusion that we were on the wrong road, and made a decision to make a change that reaching our destiny became do-able, my friend, everyone needs Jesus. Not just as someone we can call on when things are tough, but someone who can take control of our lives and as the Lord of our lives, lead us in the right way.

As your Pastor, I’m asking that you, Think About It
