In this life and in our society today, we all desire and crave a constant change of level, change of status, and story. However, while we desire a next-level change of level, status, and story, many are not ready to pay the price for such a change.
In reality, before there is any change of level in life, we must have passed the exam of life of the present level and it is never automatic and possible to jump any level of life without passing the exam of life of the present level.
It is for that purpose that it is said that life is not fair because it does not offer to us what we deserve but only what we demand. Also, it is said that every object assumes a state of rest until a relevant force is applied to it.
Since that is the case, it means that the only way we enjoy the next-level change of level, status, and the story is by taking personal responsibility to pass the exam of life of our present level as a change of level comes only by promotion.
Many people are stagnated in life (one level) and are envying those getting promoted to the next level because they paid the price and passed the exam of life of their present level.
It is equally said that life is in phases and men are in sizes. It is unfortunate that some men try to assume the status of the next level of life which they have not yet come to.
As a result, some end up crashing their lives and the lives of others following them. What I am trying to say is that we must all try to take personal responsibility and pay the price as to move to our next level in life.
Also, in this life and especially in this kingdom, one thing that is a fact is that overtaking is allowed and our status in life is not a function of our age but a function of the level of life we are operating.
Very often, before we have a change of status, we must have a change of level and as our level changes, our status will equally change thereby granting us a positive change of story.
Whenever you see any man or woman enjoying a new status in life, his or her level may have changed. What causes a dramatic change of level anywhere and anytime is wisdom and relevant knowledge and understanding.
It is for that purpose that Solomon said in Proverbs 4:7 which says that Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
However, a wise man once said that if he ever know anything, it is because he was standing on the shoulders of those who are ahead of him. And it takes personal responsibility to do so.
Remember what Solomon said in Proverbs 4:7 regarding Wisdom is the principal thing and said that we should get wisdom. And in all our getting, we should get understanding.
A wise man equally said that we will remain the same person/level and status except for the people we meet and interact with and the books we read.
However, some people are interacting with the wrong set of people and reading irrelevant books that do not add anything to their destiny. Some are even lazy to read any book. They can spend hours watching movies, but cannot spend 30 minutes reading books.
Moreover, entertainment and social media had captured the attention, especially our youths who can spend hours on social media and entertainment sites while they could not spend an hour reading relevant books.
They even try to avoid sites that are not for entertainment. It is for that reason that one of such person from my country, who sent me an e-mail to complain that my site is not $exy or entertaining.
I wrote back to that young man to point out that I am not an entertainer and my site is never for entertainment. The site is only for serious-minded fellows that desire to mould their destiny.
Therefore, to the esteemed readers of my blogs worldwide, I wish to assure you that I will never entertain you with words, but what I feel that will aid in molding your destiny. It is my heart’s desire to see you fulfill your destiny.
It is when your destiny is moulded, that you will be in a position to fulfill your destiny. It is then that you can then relax for entertainment later.
Talking about reading relevant books, I was surprised, if not shocked while reading about the wealthy man Bill Gate who is said that he still spent quality time reading relevant books and magazines.
I learned that one of the greatest fear of Bill Gate is to be outdated in knowledge. But this is not so with many Africans, especially my Countrymen and women who cannot boast of reading till completion any book since they left university over five years ago.
I am not surprised that foreigners like the spiritual knowledge they get from Destiny Moulders that the numbers of visitors from foreign countries, mostly Americans and Russians are very far more than visitors from my country.
Having said that, we must all take personal responsibility to ensure that we pay the adequate or necessary price for a dramatic change of level that will, in turn, lead to our change of status. It is then we will enjoy a positive change of story. Shalom!
