We all want to be great people in our different spheres of life. We have advocated for ways on how to make this greatness reign. Occasionally, we find ourselves wondering if God has only called a chosen few on this journey of greatness.
The good news is, God deposited greatness in each and every one of us. He wired systems in us to achieve this greatness. Among the systems, He instilled values in us.
Our values are a part of who we are, what we stand for and how we act. They are chosen by our soul to guide us through life. Every one of us can make a difference if we choose to stand up for our values.
I have been through relationships with very good people. In some of these relationships I had different values with my partner but because I was always so afraid of standing up for my values, I hindered clarity in my relationships and ended up settling for less than what I deserved.
The thing we forget most times is, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. I wasn’t wrestling against the innocent people I dated, I wrestled with the spirit against my greatness.
Every time we sweep our values under a rag, we choose to partner with the devil in certain areas of our life. I wasted myself and the people I was relating with just because I wasn’t bold enough to stand up for my values. And when I did, the relationships I was afraid to lose, I lost in the short run. This paved way for greatness for both parties.
The greatest people in the world are the few brave who choose to stand for their values, not the ones who are more creative or with more wisdom.
Choosing to stand for your values is like acknowledging the voice God has instilled in our soul.We have to know that there is something greater than ourselves that we are a part of.
We need to create this life with the ultimate creator. We cannot thrive by only our wisdom and creativity.
We have to understand that our very presence on earth comes from something greater than us. It comes from someone who knew us before we were formed in our mother’s womb and instilled Godly values in each one of us.
Let us be in alignment with our values and make our world and the world around us a better place.
Whatever value God has instilled in you. Stand up for it.
