Apostle Joshua Selman: You must be determined to succeed. What is determination? Unbendedness in pursuit. That means I’m not giving up until I see my destiny become what God showed me in that vision.
Philippians 3:13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
You know people of purpose and destiny because at every point in their life, there is the one thing they are doing. People who do too many things, they are not just busybodies. Sometimes doing too many things is a revelation of purposelessness.
“I press”, this for me, is the Defination of determination. I press towards the mark .. That means, nothing will stop me. If God has said there is an entrepreneur, if God has said there is a man of God. Then I press towards the mark.
Determination requires courage because for the most part of your journey, you will be alone. Don’t expect people to believe in you at the infancy of your vision and don’t blame them if they don’t believe in you. It is at the end that the vision speaks. So, for the most part of your journey to purpose and destiny, you will walk alone but find comfort “that though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I shall fear no evil for thou”, not for you people, for “thou”. There is just one person you need to verify “is He here with me?”.
Apostle, ” I’m unable to rise because nobody believes in me”… You are not alone, keep moving.
Apostle, “I think people like you”, when did they start liking me? Go and find out, there is nobody who they start liking and clapping for at the beginning.
Every vision looks like a failure from the beginning. It takes determination, your determination will force failure to become success.
All these free lunch mentality is why we don’t have champions in the Kingdom. You must sustain the courage to walk alone. But when you win, I assure you, you will not clap alone. There are few people in life, who will be around those who are starting. They are called burden bearers. And if you read your Bible, they are not many. That’s why I told you to pray for them.
But I’m telling you, you must trust the Holy Spirit as the chief burden bearers and be sure that if He’s there, FIRE ON.
Do you know what determination is? If I perish, I perish.
