Everyone that has been called to be great or to do the extraordinary MUST suffer extreme persecution! It is typical for this person's family, friends, inner circle and those he trusts the most to hurt him the most.
Amazingly, at the end of this process, it is almost impossible for this person that's called to greatness to hate these people (if he understands the purpose behind his ordain process). The reason for this is simple, and that is his challenges would have taught him that these people were not only necessary for his development, but they were also the tools God decided to use to chisel him into the extraordinary great person he has or will become...............
Great people are rarely produced through great times.... In fact, it is during the bad times that when their backs are against the wall, they wisely decide that there is no other option than to become GREAT! God will see to it that your back is placed against the wall, only to show the world and your enemies that they unknowingly played a crucial part in provoking the greatness that was always within you but needed their resistance to pull it out of you.
For those of you who have labeled yourselves as a failure or others have convinced you that you are a failure and counted you out. Make no mistake they are about to see the greatest revolution and transformation of the human spirit ever.
YOU ARE BY FAR GREATER THAN YOUR ENVIRONMENT HAS CONVINCED YOU TO BELIEVE!
Greatness is presently residing in you; however, it’s asleep and needs the agitation of your haters and detractors to give it life. Provocation would usually be the instrument by which revelation and creation are released from the human spirit, that the human mind originally assumed it had nothing left to fight with. Nevertheless, due to discomfort and applied pressure, the one called to greatness becomes motivated to reach deep within to tap into a source that was always there but needed the right pressure to release it.
For those of you that are reading this right now, your present dislike position is agitating you to release the greatness that presently resides within you. The Bible says it this way, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us. Even though we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed. Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body, 2Corianthians 4:7-10.
It is my prayer for you this beautiful Morning, that the Lord will open your spiritual eyes, so that you may see your difficulties working for you and not against you. In time you will eventually comprehend in depth why you ought to love your enemies and to honestly and completely accept the fact as crazy as it may seem, as to why we must give thanks in all things because these circumstances (like and dislike) are the will of God concerning us in Christ Jesus. Amen!
