Once upon a time, a man went to a fortune teller, curious to know what she would say about his future.
The fortune teller looked into her crystal ball, and her facial expression said it all. She advised him that it would be better if he did not know but he insisted she told him.
She went on to tell him that he would die in a bus accident, and it would happen within the next two or three months. “Why? When? How?
“That I can not say,” she replied.
On the journey home, he was depressed and worried, telling himself how he had never really believed in fortune tellers.
After two months, the thought started to play on his mind every day. He became very anxious and wanted to make sure he avoided the prediction. So hired someone to run his business for a couple of months, as he decided a good plan would be to lock himself in his house where he wouldn’t come close to any buses.
Another three weeks past.
He got up one morning put the coffee on and went to feed his dog outside as usual. On the step his little son had left some of his toys, as he went to step over them he stepped on a little toy bus, fell and hit his head and died instantly.
This is a fictional story to illustrate an important message; sometimes we can be too careful, thinking that we can avoid the thing that we fear. We fear to be adventurous; we fear to do anything new; we fear to take a risk.
Most people think they’re not destined to do anything amazing, so they sit back in mediocrity. Tortured in later years with regret.
We all have a unique gift that we can use to enrich other peoples lives. Don’t let fear hold you back from fulfilling your destiny.
Live every day to the fullest. God rewards action, God rewards faith and often the biggest risk that you can take is to play it safe and not go after what you want.
So this week get out there, create your destiny, show God that there is no fear in your heart and watch the favour that flows into your life.
