Women are wonderfully made and powerfully equipped, but sometimes, limitations and excuses restrain many from achieving destiny in life. Excuses are one of the disguise devises of Satan to keep human below ability, achievement and destiny. Many have missed opportunities to move forward by giving excuses and procrastination.
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3 vs 1 “there is time and seasons for everything”; some fear to break out of their comfort zones because of fear of mistakes or failure; failure is never final, sometimes failure create platform for success; living in past experience and mistakes brings limitation to man’s progression. Many women are given great mission; remarkable abilities and skills; some wish to pursue a career, but yet, nothing is done about it.
Taking a bold step, seeking information, planning and taking actions is very important in breaking through. The words of God says in Habakkuk 2 vs 2-3 “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”.
There is always millions of reasons not to do something, but personal decision is required to breakthrough. Prayer and faith are very important keys, they help to sustain momentum in a most discouraging situation. (Hebrew 12 vs 2), but a vision needs to be defined, planned and executed no matter how small. Outgrow yesterday experience, don’t dwell long on old things; don’t let anyone discourage you, but only run your dreams with positive minded people.
Samuel (1 Samuel 17:1-58) has many reasons to be discouraged, many excuses not to showcase potentials, even from situations around him, family members and friends, and therefore would have missed destiny; but he chose to speak out; move forward, use opportunity, execute potential, practised faith and won the battle.
I am a living testimony; I have also worked with hundreds of women that have passed through or passing through so much in life, but nothing is stopping them from reaching their goals because God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind because we do not by our own ability, but of divine assurance. May God grant you abundant grace and accomplishment as you take the bold step forward from now on.
