Self Development, The Way To Go

And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

Genesis 26:13

“As long as you the heir remains a child, you will never be able to access all that is yours by covenant.”

There is a stage you get to and growing becomes difficult if not impossible. There is a stage people get to in the school of growth and maturity that you cannot help them anymore. They have grown old and there is nothing you can do to bail them out. A right decision made today can deliver a lifetime fortune to your future; even so a wrong decision made, can maim a destiny for life.

The decision to grow up, change your level and status in life is one of the best decisions you can make. Incidentally, no one can make this decision for you, it is a decision you have to make for yourself, but sadly, this is a decision many never make.

They go round marking time, never taking a stand for personal growth and development, weeks roll into months, months roll into years, wrinkles appear here and there and they don’t even realize that time has gone. Friend, understand that refusal to grow is a decision made to remain in captivity because as long as you are stagnant, actualizing your destiny and becoming all God will have you be will be impossible.

Sustainable greatness is for those who grow. Isaac was not always great, he grew and became. People who refuse to grow end up begging their mates and their children or their children’s age mates because when others were growing and pushing forward, they were wiling away time. People who don’t grow become bitter and envious.  Many children that refused to grow are liabilities and shame to their parents. Sonship is about maturity. When you work hard you should be able to celebrate the glory.

There is no honour in stagnation, there is no joy in marking time, there is only honour and joy in growing. As a believer, you must grow to enjoy all God has ordained for you in this kingdom. Look at this – Now I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all” – Galatians 4:1.God does not have a problem blessing any man but He has a problem with you being destroyed on account of the blessing.

Just Do It

  • Make a choice for growth.
  • Pursue and pay the price for growth and development. With growth comes stretching, growth is never fun but its rewards are satisfying.


  1. Oh God of all grace, empower me to pay the price for the order of growth that I desire to see, in the Name of JESUS.
  2. I break out by fire and by force from every comfort zone fighting my growth and development, in JESUS’ Name.
