“His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it (John 2:5).
The Almighty God is always on the look out to raise champions among men (Jeremiah 29:11,Deut 30:19) but majority are afraid to become one because it is costly. When a sport man is preparing for a championship tournament, there are certain routine he must regimentally adhere to such as regular and time-bound exercises, abstaining from certain foods and comfort etc. To be a champion is not an easy task. To remain a champion is even harder because there are several people out there seeking to dethrone you and take away your medal.
But I suggest to you that the cheapest route to becoming a champion is by allowing God to orchestrate it. What that mean is that He becomes your trainer. He knows your opponents’ weak points and will instruct you on the right missile to use at the appropriate moment. In Exodus 14:21, Moses only needed to lift up his hand over the Red Sea and the rest was history. Likewise in I Samuel 17: 45-50, David in company of the “Man of war” sent a guided stone to the forehead of Goliath and the giant fell.
The bridegroom at the marriage in Cana of Galilee became renowned because the groomsmen were obedient to the instruction of the miracle worker, even though it sounded awkward then (I Cor. 1:25).
To become a great individual in life therefore, allow your Coach to breathe into your little effort and all that represents giant in your life will begin to fall. However, you must be ready to obey Him even when the instruction seems stupid. In this relationship, there is no room for rationalization or ‘other interpretations’ of His instruction otherwise, you will be on your own.
Sustaining success and greatness in life can be extremely challenging especially as a child of God and that is why the Bible counsels that we “should be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8). Your enemy is carefully watching and lurking around, ready to capitalise on your small error at your unguided moment. He succeeded over King Saul, Samson and Judas Iscariot; you will not be among the statistics in Jesus name.
Greatness is expensive, but can be achieved and sustained if you stick with the Coach’s eternal plan for your life.
