Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. Then he said to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Luke 3:1-2, 7 NKJV

Success and fulfilment in life is not necessarily a function of your parentage, your family background, and your physical or geographical location. It is also not primarily a factor of your apparel and diet, the office or position you occupy and your style.

What determines your divine usefulness, success and fulfillment in life is your proximity to the LORD God and your access to divine revelation. Once you are divinely positioned in your divine location, your divine allocation will meet you there.

Therefore, to avoid fruitless labour, aimless pursuit and frustration in life, try and locate the place God has ordained for you to pitch your tent in life. Stay there until you are divinely equipped and given your divine consignment for your life assignment.

Until you have been fully loaded from the above you cannot be needed and serviceable to mankind on earth. Your value in life is not determined by the volume of your activities nor by your geographical location. Even in the wilderness, God can make you an ever flowing spring of living fountain to refresh the life of men thereby impacting them for eternity. Good morning and enjoy a refreshing weekend.

Your brother,
