It Just Can't Be Ok!

grenepages_Wunmi Falodun MY LIVING HOPE_It Just Can't Be Ok!There is a zone, a familiar zone; it needs not so much hard work. It's a place where nothing thrives other than living on past glory and mere wishes or daydreaming characterised by being just okay. Okay with every and anything. Okay with mediocrity. Okay with neither make us rich or poor, "simply give us our daily bread" and we will be just fine; it's okay. This zone is the comfort zone. Nothing grows in this zone. Things that once blossomed get to this zone and either die a silent/natural death or depreciate.
Now, in my humble opinion, if you ever want to be relevant in life in this present age and time, that prayer, "Neither make me or poor, simply give me my daily bread" Proverbs 30:8 (emphasis mine)……..is not for you. I'm sincerely tired of seeing people merely going through life and surviving rather than thriving and saying things like, "I just want to live a quiet life, be happily married, raise my children and probably my children's children and enjoy life". Really? Any average individual can do that, but there is more! There is always more in God! We just can't be comfortable with the status quo or status quo ante, we shouldn't be.
I'm provoked in my spirit, and the aim is to get you fired up too. The other day I was watching a programme on TV. I love to read biographies and autobiographies etc. I also love to watch people talk about themselves, their achievements and accomplishment, what drives them, how they're able to do what they do so well and so on. So on this programme, different people were being interviewed, and they were celebrities (so to speak). These people were talking in retrospect about their first day at their different universities, I was honestly enjoying the programme, they shared life experiences and talked about their drives, passion and purpose until it was a particular woman's turn. This was what she had to say: "oh, my university days, we dressed to kill, we represented, and we partied and had fun." I was dumbfounded and flabbergasted, who says that on international TV? What a shallow mind, I thought to myself.
Let's face it, you'll not find one great person who is complacent. You won't! Something drives them, something bigger than them; in fact, someone propels them constantly. Whether or not we make it, it's just okay. Whether or not we progress, it's okay. Whether or not we advance, it's just okay. However, it cannot just be okay! It mustn't just be okay!
We need a different spirit, the type Caleb had, that caused him to excel in Numbers14:24. You need a different spirit; you can't be like others. It is this different spirit that propels people, no matter how laid back they may seem. Your dreams, vision and purpose must be bigger, greater and brighter than you. If you're the smartest in your group, you're in the wrong place, its better you get out real quick. The issue is most of the things we boast about, those things that gives us some level of self actualisation,those things that makes us seem as though we have arrived or at other times, makes us feel as though we are failures, making us feel disadvantaged are simply earthly blessings and unbelievers do these things just perfectly well too. It's also very interesting to note that no matter where we are or where we stand in life, someone somewhere has it better and someone somewhere has it worse. We should all strive to be better.
Now with all the Holy Ghost you claim to have, what makes you different? Only the different spirit can differentiate you. Even if all fingers are not equal, your own will not be the shortest. Your case ought to be different; we ought to have all round success, from the boardroom to the bedroom and in all facet of life. Your God ordained destiny is a global one, you're created for global prominence and eternal significance, we are called to lead and not just to follow, to be the head and not the tail, we're to press on/forward against all odds, we are to do the incredibly unimaginable and unthinkable as gods on earth. We are trailblazers and pacesetters. We are to be successful in the home front and prosperous in the marketplace; one shouldn't suffer at the expense of the other.
Wake up; no one achieves these by being complacent and satisfied with our daily bread or by settling for "just okay or I'm fine". It's not just okay, it cannot just be okay. Your footprints should/must be left in the sands of time. What would you have your generation say about you after you're long gone? I once heard someone say, "Write your own obituary, and begin to live those things while you're here." It sounds extreme, but it makes sense to me.
How can anyone just come to this earth, to live and just die like that? In my opinion, it's an aberration. It's not done! We aren't supposed to live like mere men; we are kings and judges. Psalm 82: 6-7 refers to this as "complacent satisfaction" (the amplified version). It's not a grammatical error, it's to let you know the gravity. Complacency sips into every aspect of one's life and it's only a matter of time before it messes us up big time. Moreover, serious minded people can perceive complacency miles away.
You can only discover purpose in Him. For your purpose/destiny not to be jettisoned, you must say NO to "complacent satisfaction" daily! Don't buy the lies of the enemy just yet. There is more to you than you know, look inwards, pay attention, persist, and persevere. Reject complacency at all cost and by all means. It's not just okay, it can't just be okay. There is more!
