This piece written by Kemi Oyedepo gives a great insight to what the journey to greatness could look like. I hope you enjoy reading every word.
you have to
understand that when you have a plan, a goal, a vision, a dream, a passion, an
assignment in life, not everyone will be happy or excited for you. In fact you
may have more 'haters' than those who genuinely look forward with great
expectation, to the great things you'll accomplish. Even those you believe
should encourage and support you, may end up doing the opposite.
Some may feel you are not
qualified, others may feel they should be the one doing it, others may just be plain jealous because of your impact or
the speed at which you may be accomplishing your task. Whatever the reason is and
whoever the person may be, DO NOT be discouraged and do not be distracted.
I don't know about you but I'm so
glad that God doesn't judge us that way! In fact, to Him, our inadequacies are
what make us qualified for whatever the assignment may be. I'm sure you've
heard it before that He doesn't call the equipped, He equips the called. Praise
As long as you know that God is
the One Who has given you that task; as long as you know you are at the very
centre of His plan for your life, stay focused and keep moving!
Keep going after the necessary knowledge and
understanding in that task. As I often like to say, they may hate you, they may
despise you, they may envy you, but they won't be able to deny the light &
the impact that you have! Whatever field you may be in - Medicine,
Architecture, Business, Minister of the gospel, etc, keep going for light &
do not forget the One who sent you. Take no credit, and ensure that as your
light is shining, it is pointing all those you come in contact with, to your Father
in heaven!" Kemi Oyedepo
