Isaac Newton (1642-1727), English scientist & philosopher, discovered - among other ground-breaking discoveries - the law of gravity. When an apple fell on his head in his mother’s farm he began to question, “why?”
These two discoveries, "Was it serendipity?" I asked myself. Serendipity is defined as (1) the discovery of something fortunate; the accidental discovery of something pleasant, valuable, or useful. (2) A natural gift for making pleasant, valuable or useful discoveries by accident. Simply put, serendipity is the same thing as ‘luck’!
However, the important issues of life [like marriage, career, finances etc] cannot be left to serendipity. Questions demand answers.
It was when Jabez discovered his heritage (– Judah!) that his situation changed for good (1 Chron. 4:9-10, 38; 5:2). He did not wait for a serendipitous discovery. It looks like he went on a deliberate search.
Nobody becomes a celebrity without making outstanding discoveries in their field. It’s an eternal law: HE THAT SEEKETH FINDETH! (Matt. 7:8; Luke 11:10; Prov. 8:17; Jer. 29:12-13)
It is a search that produces a discovery, and a discovery leads to a recovery. God has secrets (Job 29:4, 5ff). These secrets make great on earth. They confer the honor of royalty upon you. These divine secrets make for championship in life (Job 1:4; Deut. 29:29; Prov. 25:2).
You must however, understand that these mysteries of the kingdom of God are kept FOR us not FROM us! It is given to us to know! (Mark 4:11; Matt. 13:11; Luke 8:10; Rom. 16:25-26) You have the spirit of wisdom & revelation (Eph. 1:17-19). It is God’s pleasure to reveal hidden things to us (Prov. 25:2; Deut. 29:29; 1 Cor. 2:10).
This is what formed the crux of my thoughts in our Purpose ‘n’ Life Seminar that held on Sunday, June 5, 2011 here in Abuja. I took my text from Luke 15:8-9, where Jesus gave three parables: The Lost Sheep, The Lost Coin & The Lost Son. I shared principles that will enable you make outstanding discoveries that will make you victorious in life.
Don’t wait till you lose something. Embark on a productive search today.
Here are some pictures from the event.
