With more progress come more challenges

Life is just so funny, at the same time, it can be daunting, difficult, fulfilling, exasperating, enjoyable and much more.

At a time when some people are struggling (in certain areas of their lives), other people are making waves in some areas of their lives: as a matter of fact, based on what an individual does – people might perceive him/her making progress than others that are in the same range or class with him.

Unfortunately, several people are (negatively) affected by the fact that anther person is excelling in what he does, while they are still struggling with some things – forgetting that everyone has his/her specific purpose(s) different from another person on earth and that, unless, one is able to live within his/her purpose(s) – struggles of life might continue.

A challenge will not remain forever without a solution

Jesus Christ had promised the early disciples, and everyone that believes in Him (now) until His return – to be of gladness because the world is defeated and victory guaranteed, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world,” John 16:33, KJV.

Therefore, any challenges you might be having (this time) or which you will have later (in life) will not remain unsolved: there is always solutions for each problem.

Encourage yourself, go out and do the necessary things that will pull solutions into your life over every challenge but ensure to remain within the purview of God’s plans for you.

Unfolding the arms in the season of solution

A large number of people are used to resting when making progress (at certain points) in life. Whereas, a person with focus on purpose will not relax until breath finally drops from him/her.

According to Billy Joe Daugherty in his book titled finding your purpose“People do not decide your calling. It is God who decides your purpose, and He can lift you up and set you in that place where no one ever thought you would be,”[1]. A person that is driven by purpose will never allow a single progress to get him off track – knowing full well that challenges abound as much as victory.

In this sense, everyone must learn to take life from ‘a common feature of games’ by which the players are taken to levels more difficult than the beginning – as they advance in knowledge, scores and skills.

This sounds more like saying that your knowledge and skills are meaningful only when you are able to take on more challenges that are against the purposes of your existence on earth.

On this note, we will like to tell you not to go outside God’s will for your life: do not, also, depend on yourself, but on God, while you deploy your skills and go around, doing your required chores – He shall lift you up in due time.
