Have you been held back in life just because you couldn’t find or develop the steps that take you to where you want to go? I’ve been in that boat before. It feels just like trying to climb to the last floor of a storey building but not finding the staircase that leads there?
I was at a senior secondary school to submit a letter for a speaking engagement with the students of the school. Upon my arrival, they directed me to the secretary of the head whose office was at the last floor of one of the storey buildings.
Thinking I could find my way through easily, I dashed forward, not asking where the staircase was located. For about 2 minutes, I went back and forth like an ant, searching for the staircase. All this while, I never got to my destination. And it was because I couldn’t find the steps that led there.
Finally, when I found it, it hid in a corner where I least expected a staircase could be placed. Less than 30 minutes after I found it, I was at the secretary’s office, dropped the letter, and was on my way back home.
The hardest place to get to in life is a place where no step leads.
Imagine you want to be financially free by December next year, but you aren’t quite sure of the steps to take there. Do you think you’ll make it there? It’s obvious.
Imagine you want to build a home of peace, love and respect, but you aren’t so sure of the steps that produce such results. You may wait till Christ returns.
Do you now realize why drunken men hardly make it back home? Their judgement of the steps that lead them home is distorted. They aren’t quite sure those same steps that took them home previously will safely land them in their dwelling places. And once they aren’t sure of their steps, they end up at the roadside.
Consider your goals for this year. Have you developed steps that can safely take you to their achievement? Because it takes a step to make a shift to your goal.
How clear are the steps you’ve developed? Are they strong enough to bear the weights of life? I hope they don’t collapse. Are those steps in agreement with your values and goals? It’s a waste of time having your ladder lean against the wrong wall.
Your goals are crippled if the steps to them are weak, unclear, and unaligned to your values.
Don’t just see Canaan. Get there. But don’t be fooled. It takes steps to get there.
