And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him. 1 Samuel 17:38-39 KJV
Saul’s armor didn’t fit David. Maybe you know how David felt. People may have dreams for you that don’t fit. They may want you to become something different than what you are created to be.
You have a spectacular destiny. But it may look different than what others define as success. They may imply that to be a success you need to be President, or a CEO, or win an Oscar, or pitch in the world series. It’s like trying to dress you up in armor that doesn’t fit.
Your destiny is unique to you. What matters is not that you are doing something that other’s see as grand, but that you are doing what you are passionate about. That you are fulfilling YOUR Vision.
Vision doesn’t mean that you have to own the company, or make millions of dollars. It simply means that you are fulfilling your personal destiny.
Your vision may be to be a stonecutter in a rock quarry, who understands that he is helping to build the grandest cathedral in Europe. You are doing what God created you to do. You have a vision for what it is that God wants you to accomplish and you do it your way.
It takes everyone doing their part for God’s work to get done. You just need to understand what your part is in the big picture vision of what God is doing. Read More
