Powerful Secrets To Discovering The Life You Were Born To Live


Powerful Secrets To Discovering
The Life You Were Born To Live

by Olga Hermans


Have you ever thought about the fact that there is no other person in the whole world that can fulfill what you are meant to do? There are two directions you can take. One is to press on with God. The second is to run back to something that you know is secure. But you will never be what God wants you to be if you turn and run.

Only if you choose the plan God has for you will you be able to fulfill your divine destiny.

Did you know that God created you to solve a problem? Why did you buy a car? Because it solved a transportation problem. Why do you watch the news? It solves an information problem. Why did God create you? To solve a human problem. You were created for a specific and very special purpose and to solve a specific problem on earth.

Are you ready to discover it?

So, you are not here by accident. God has qualified you to be the perfect solution to someone; He planned you, and nobody else can be like you.

Nobody else can do what you do. You are unlike anyone else on earth. God is not a duplicator. He is a Creator.

You alone are absolutely perfect and genetically accurate for solving a specific problem for somebody on earth today.

To discover the life you were born to live requires your total focus. Somebody said once that the only reason men fail is because their focus is broken.

How important is your focus? Jesus encouraged His disciples to keep their focus on the Kingdom of God. He assured them that their financial provisions and everything they needed would be produced through absolute focus upon Him.

Your focus is very important, because a broken focus will destroy your dreams. The moment you are distracted from what you are created to do, it will create a lot of tragedies and disasters in your life. I am telling you this because I have experienced this personally in my own life. I made some good choices in my life and some bad choices. But, you know what? It doesn’t matter. God loves to restore our lives.

He is about to do that and if you want Him to do that for you; He will!

Discovering the life you were born to live requires time, more than you realize. It requires preparation time. God gave you time and you might have exchanged your time for things that don’t matter to your life. You need to eliminate the things that God did not specifically tell you to do.

Your life requires your participation. Nobody else can complete it for you and nobody else can pursue it for you. It makes me sad when I listen to people who blame their circumstances on others. Husbands complain about their wives and women complain about their husbands.  We should never complain about things that we tolerate and permit in our lives. So stop blaming others for your personal decisions.

Never forget that your present circumstances in your life are there because you permitted them. And because you tolerate them; you breathe life and longevity into them. People sabotage themselves by doing things contrary to what they believe and contrary to what they desire to achieve.

You see, the moment you don’t tolerate your present situation anymore; you start creating a different future. Nothing will really change in your life until you cannot tolerate it any longer. You see, God never intended for you to depend on everyone else to step up to the plate and make a homerun.

Certainly, hindrances occur. It is common that relationships can slow us down, demotivate and discourage us. Everybody has experienced a connection with someone who at first seemed to be a blessing but then turned out to be a burden. But you have chosen your friendships! And the quality of your relationships that you have chosen reflects and reveals what you respect the most in life.

I have read some biographies of great men and women of God. One thing that always stood out to me was that they took personal responsibility for their own actions, decisions, and the tasks necessary to reach their goals and dreams.

Again, never forget that it is you who has chosen the present. And it is you who can keep it or change it. You may complain, whine, and gripe for the rest of your life. But you have chosen the environment surrounding you. You have accepted it. You have embraced it. You have refused to walk away from it. So stop finding fault with it.

You must grasp this.

You must decide the conclusion of your life that you desire. You must decide to run your own race. You must grow the kind of harvest you desire. This is why complaining must stop. You are responsible for your situations.

Are you deeply disturbed and uncomfortable with your life right now?

If you are; here are four questions to ask yourself that can move to a place where you are in charge of the life you were born to live.

1. What one decision would you make if you knew you couldn’t fail?
2. What one thing should you eliminate from your life because it holds you back from reaching your full potential?
3. Are you on the path of something absolutely marvellous, or something absolutely mediocre?
4. Are you running from something, or to something?

Your destiny requires your own personal choices and appropriate actions.

  3. Olga, great article (as always)! This is so true – We must decide the conclusion of our life that we desire. Thanks for posting this article!

  4. Olga, this is an excellent article. It’s so easy to blame others, to complain when things don’t happen the way we want them to, but in most cases, it is because of a chocie or decision we made that was not the best. I thoroughly enjoyed this article. THANK YOU!

  5. Awesome article Olga…So true; “We must run our own race using the time that God has blessed us with.” …our destiny certainly does require our personal attentiveness and appropriate actions. Thank you…Excellence!!! …Hughie

  6. Olga, I agree with the statement: nothing will really change in your life until you cannot tolerate it any longer….that God never intended for us to depend on everyone else to step up to our plate. Thanks for the encouragement.

  7. A truly amazing article that reminds me that every day adds up to the sum total of “denny’s life”…Focusing on what I want the end result to be is critical to reaching my purpose. Thanks Olga!

  8. I ditto Denny-a truly amazing article! I think it’s so important that we be remind that we have been placed here during this time and age for a specific purpose and many times, to experience the life that we were meant to live, is one that requires risk; getting out of our comfort zone. Thanks for this great reminder Olga! Many blessings to you!

  9. Thank you Olga, for your inspiring articles and advice. It appears i have been operating this instrument called life without a user manual. Your message have just reached me when i am trying to normalise my life after losing my wife three years ago, left four sons of primary school going age, plus a whole array of health and social problems. Thank you and may our Lord Jesus richly bless you, your ministry and family

    This very encouragin. Well written. Ya did an excellent job.

  11. Shalom! You are a reflection of my mentor Dr. Mike Murdock and of course “JESUS” (not necessarily in that order :). It is freeing being who God designed me to be. It is how we solve the problems of others and knowing how God would have us to function means much. We are not to replace God in the lives of others but motivate to seek God for their destiny and not duplicate the one He has given to me. When asked to do something, I immediately seek the LORD and respond accordingly. Taking responsibility of one’s life and destiny require taking refuge in the arms of Jesus daily. Thanks for reminding me to do daily recalibrating of my focus. Romans 12:1-2.

  12. Carrie Huskey says:
