#10FsForASuccessfulLife - (3) #BeFANTASTIC

"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might"...- Eccle 9:10

Be your utmost best to excel wherever you find yourself. In the usage of your skills, abilities, talents etc, stand out. In life, everyone is afforded an opportunity to excel  yet only a few stand out. Sometimes, there is the tendency to think there are special ones but as far as God is concern, everyone is very special and can become anything if we choose to.

Being fantastic at what you do requires an inner resolve to be better in any chosen area in spite of your challenges.  Excuses are very cheap and if you subscribe to it, they will cheapen and weaken your best resolve in life. Every great person could have given an excuse yet they discarded its notion and became all round fantastic at what they do.

If you approach life with a sense of entitlement you will lose the joy that makes people excel with dignity. No one owes you best people will help up to some point. The best doings to bring grace and dignity to you should come from you. You are your best help and your worst enemy.

To excel or to be fantastic is a decision you have to make. It is not dependent on external factors but more on you. You have been empowered by God through Christ to dictate the issues that affect your life. Projecting the best of your intentions is something you have the right to. Being fantastic at and in work, friendship, love etc is a key ingredient in living life successfully. 

The more I study the word of God, the more I understand life and its challenges can be conquered without much sweat if we will listen to what the Spirit is saying. Our opening scripture is succinct and emphatic :- "whatever you find to do here on earth, do it with every ability, knowledge and finally passion" for without which you will never be all that God called you to. You can be FANTASTIC in all that you do.

Think Aloud :

Why do you think people struggle to be fantastic?

    Ephesians 6:7 ~ "Do your work, and be happy to do it. Work as though it is the Lord you are serving, not just an earthly master." (ERV)

    Amen Brother Joe,
    Clearly, we all make our choices daily. We either choose to make them or we make them by not choosing. We can either be like a thermometer and reflect the "temperature" of our environment or we can be a thermostat and set it.

    In Christ we can wake up in the morning empowered knowing that our God, the creator of the universe, has good plans in store for us and wants to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

    Therefore, we can make our choices in confidence knowing that He always causes us to triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14).

    Brother Joe, that alone is enough power to positively change anyone's perspective but it's just the beginning because He also promised to meet all our needs according to His riches in glory (Philipians 4:19).

    He doesn't stop at meeting our needs, instead He promises that when we delight in Him, He'll also give us the desires of our heart (Psalm 37:4).

    We serve a loving and almighty God!

    It's His incredible, overwhelming love that leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4) and gives us the power to change forever!

    I speak Christ's perpetual blessings to you, your household, your ministry, your finances, your health and relationships in Jesus' name.

  2. Great insight Jesse. I receive every prayer said. God bless
