Eureka! I Found It! DYNAMICS OF DISCOVERY in Pictures

Archimedes (287?BC – 212BC) was a Greek mathematician, inventor & philosopher who lived in Syracuse, Sicily. He discovered the principle of floatation which is also known as the Law of Hydrostatics. History has it that he ran out naked from his bath into the streets, shouting “Eureka! I found it!” Why? Was he mad? No, he just made a discovery.

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.
