Designed For The Top – By David Ibiyeomie

Deut.28:1 –And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

You have been designed for the top only. Being at the bottom is never God’s intention but your choice to make.

Deut.30:19 –I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live:

The bottom is too crowded in such a manner that no man will ever make room for you or vacate his place for you. For instance, in politics – anyone who grabs power does not ever wish to relinquish that position for another; no wonder the quest for money and fame irrespective of how it is acquired. Therefore, you have to create a way to move yourself to the top if you must have a voice on the earth.

Though God designed you for the top, it does not happen automatically. The top is only guaranteed if you are willing to pay the ultimate price.

Isaiah 1:19 –If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

There are some scriptural principles that guarantee one for the top. One of them is the law of right association. In life, who you follow determines what follows you and the company you keep determines what accompanies you. Thus, if you must hit the top, associate with people that are better than you or with like-minds. Stay around those who will inspire your faith for the top.

Prov.13:20 –He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Another principle is the law of action and reaction. Life will never give you what you deserve but only what you demand; and demand comes from reaction. It is only by doing what is required that will guarantee that which you desire.

Amos 6:1 –Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

Do not be afraid to face the storms of life. Those who are afraid of the storm will never walk on water. Always reason your way out of every challenge of life and that will move your life to where it ought to be. You should also dare to be different because it is only then that you can make a difference in life as no one gets to the top by being conventional. Change your approach to things and you will get to your desired height in life in the name of Jesus Christ- Amen!

God bless you
