I want to believe that we all know that we have a part to play in the plan of God. 

When a woman is pregnant, she begins to know by different feelings. Soon, something begins to beat within her. Then there will be slight movement. After sometime, the body will begin to do some kicking. 

By the age 12, Jesus was already becoming aware of His purpose in life. In Luke 2:49 the Bible says.

“And He said unto them, how is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” When His parents found Him in the temple they asked Him. ‘How come that you did not go with us? He said, why are you searching for Me? That was at the age of twelve. He did not being to work until 18 years later.

Samson too, before he started the real work God sent him to do, the Bible says, the spirit of the Lord began to move him at times. Judges 13:25, "And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol". All of a sudden he will feel differently, something will come upon him and it was the Spirit of God. 

In the same manner, there is no genuine born again, that does not feel certain prompting of the Holy Spirit. May be God is leading you in a direction slightly different from the once you are originally thought you are going.

Suddenly, you are beginning to discover that there are certain things people find difficult to do, but you find it easier to do. 

Like Samson, in Judges 14:6 took a lion and tore it into pieces. He must have been surprised: because that was the first time he put that power that was moving into action. He didn’t tell his mother or father. What is this that is happening to me? What am I able to do now? 

Some of us have had similar feelings. Some things are already prompting us: we are feeling somehow, that God is saying, this is the direction I’m going and you would not even be able to tell anyone. 

When you begin to witness or attend crusades, this feeling becomes strange, or may be, you start a house fellowship and certain things begin to happen and you begin to wonder, me! Can I do this? In Luke 10:7, the Bible says, “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name”. 

The Bible says the 70 disciples returned with joy. They were excited. They were saying to Jesus, Ah, we did not know we can do it. Even devils were subject to us at your Name. They were watching Jesus casting out demons, and they thought He was the only one who can do it. Our own is just to follow Him. But when they were sent out, they discovered they can do the same thing. 

“Jesus Christ said, the work that I do, you will do (John 14:12) and greater works shall ye do.”

It was not the day that Paul got converted that he was able to do what he did for God. But as he began to step out in evangelistic programmes, as he began to move from one town to another, he soon discovered what he wrote for us in Philippines 4:13. He said, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.

It was not the day he was converted that he discovered that. It was gradual process. God believes in you, not because of whom you are now but because of what you can become, and what he can do through you, by the Holy Spirit. 

In II Corinthians 1:21-22, the Bible says, 'Now He who established us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, in God; who also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts'. 

When Mary asked the angel in Luke 1:34-35, how can this things be? How can there be a baby when I don’t know a man? The angel answered in Luke 1:37, after he had told her that the Holy Spirit will overshadow her, he said, “with God, nothing shall be impossible”. You and the Holy Spirit, when the two of you combine, there is nothing you cannot do.

It is interesting that Mary did not tell anyone that an angel came to visit her. According to Luke 2:19, she did not tell her husband. When she became pregnant, the husband was thinking there must be someone who has come in with her, because Mary did not tell him. Many of the things that God is planning for your future; I’m sure you have not told anyone and it is a wise thing to keep your mouth shut. 

Do not tell the enemy, so that the devil will not bring obstacles to block your way. 

By the time the Lord Jesus Christ was 30 years old, He was ready according to Luke 4:18-22. By now, he knows His purpose on earth. And as Paul grew older, he knew why he was arrested on the road to Damascus, according to Philippians 3:12. By the time he was growing older he knew why God had to choose him. 

Whatever you are going to be in this world is already pre-determined by God. In Ephesians 1:3-5, the Bible says. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessing in heavenly... When were you chosen? Before the foundation of the world, God had already decided what you are going to be. 

And you need to know according to Romans 9:15-21 that God is the potter and you are the clay. Before the potter begins to make any clay at all, He would have decided what kind of vessel He wants to fashion out. According to Jeremiah 1:4-5, God said to Jeremiah, even before you were conceived, I had already known you. While you were in the womb, I had already sanctified you. 

God has already concluded a plan for your life. He is the potter, you are the clay. 
According to Jeremiah 18:1-6, there are some vessels that would need to be abandoned because they refuse to yield to the potter. But if you read Romans 9:1, even the vessels that are abandoned serves a purpose. They will be examples to others. This is what will happen if you don't yield to the potter.


In other to fulfill the purpose of God for your life, you must note this four things:

  • The clay does not argue with the potter, don't argue with God.

  • Clay is most easily shaped when it is soft, flexible and malleable. You want to be what God wants you to be, obey Him in all things (John 2:5) whatever God want you to do, do it.

  • Clay has no identity or function unless the potter gives it one. The potter can decide; this particular vessel is going to be used for drinking water or washing of hands or he may say, 'I just want this to be a flower pot to place on my table, stop claiming for yourself titles or identities. I am a chief, High chief, Senior Apostle, Reverend etc. Let the potter give you an identity.

  • Remember, clay is always clay (Ephesians 2:8-9) you are what you are by the grace of God. Never forget that if you go beyond your boundaries, He will reduce you back to the dust you are. Never forget your beginning. If the Holy Spirit says, bye to the clay, the clay will return to the clay.
