Many people look at themselves and wonder on the possibility of a man changing the world. Although you have heard about some world changers but you ask yourself how? Come with me.
I personally believe, it can take a man to change the world for good but not any man. But a man who is motivated and backed by God. This is the man I am talking about.
In our generation, there are many people speaking out and claiming to help change the course of history, but when they speak no one listens or it is just a few that listens. Although they have what to say but no one cares. This shows and tell us that, it is of one to speak and it is of another to hear.
Again, we need people who will take a stand and get themselves consecrated onto the lord, for the lord to back them with authority and power.
In as much as there were many people before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born and during his time who were fighting for the same course. When Dr. King spoke, it shook the foundations of segregation and the USA. And with his words and non-violent acts, segregation was abolished.
The same also has to do with Nelson Mandela also known as Madiba. There were many people who were fighting for the same course way before he joined the struggle. He suddenly rose to become the face of the movement to overthrow apartheid. And even when he was in prison, when he spoke from there, the world heard him. And as a result, it shook the foundation of apartheid and it was abolished.
These people were a shining light to their generation and continue to impact the next generation. And because they took a stand of which they were willing to die for, now the world celebrates them and they will forever be celebrated. Although they are dead and gone they continue to live.
This should tell us that, not all men are the same. And to become that great man of global impact, there is great price one should be ready to pay. And these are the prices of preparation, motivation and consecration.
To live like anyone else you become like anyone else. To live ordinarily is to become ordinary. We are born and made to impact the world for good.
We should dare to make a difference and with this motivation, we shall overcome every obstacles that may come our way.
One must have a vision and must write it down to guide him or her in life. This will help in one’s decision making as far as life is concerned.
Know this, some people pursue vision and others ambition but those that pursue vision dare to make a difference no matter the condition find themselves in.
For one to have a vision, he must be connected to God. It is when you pursue God that you get to know your vision to pursue. And since vision comes from the lord, he gives grace to one for one to be able to fulfill purpose. So when there is a storm and things seems dark, he gives power to one to overcome the circumstances. And this is what makes men of vision unshakeable and unconquerable, for their source cometh from the Lord.
But with ambition which is self driven, when one is faced with a storm, it paralyzes the person and because he is the only one behind his ambition, he will lack the necessary strength to overcome because the strength of man is limited and as said in 1Samuel 2:9 that “….. for by strength shall no man prevail”. And in this case one will be compelled to quit which will lead to frustration.
And this is the reason why men of vision are able to stand face to face with death and defend what they believe in, for they know they are not alone in the situation.
Check the virtues and character of the men that shook the world for good and you will see whom they were connected to. And as the bible also say in Mathew 7:16 “ by their fruits you shall know them”. And it is out of the fruits that develop the character and the necessary virtues.
Men of vision are God empowered men and men of ambition are self empowered men.
But I hope you choose to be empowered by God to make a difference in the world and in your generation, which will go on to impact the next generations.
God bless you!!!
