The bible says in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations”. This scripture lets us know that God had a plan for Jeremiah just like he has a plan for us. What is even more fascinating about this particular verse is we can see God has a habit or a niche’. God has a niche of creating things, speaking things into existence, and making a way out of no way.
As I thought about this even more it made me realize we have a niche as well. Businesses are taught to find or have a niche (a specialized but profitable corner of the market). Many of us get upset or disappointed about the direction of our lives without realizing we truly have a niche.
Our niche is SUCCESS (Speak–Unique–Create–Channel–Expand–Setup–Survive)
Speak life into a dead situation. The bible says death and life is in the power of our tongue. Our words have power to bring us success or failure more than people being against us.
Uniquely be the person God called you to be. To many people try to be another person because they aren’t happy with their life or they feel copying another persons business can bring them the same level of success. But the bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made letting us know that we can be the person God called us to be without fear.
Create our future through a vision. In addition to watching our words the bible tells us in Habakkuk 2:2 to “write the vision and make it plain”, letting us know that it’s important to have a vision for our life. Not having a vision is like driving your car and not caring which route you take to your destination just as long as you get there.
Channel the strength of our ancestors & squad serves as two fold benefit to us. One it allows us to remember our forefathers as they paved the way for many of us to be successful. The other benefit is it allows us to surround ourselves with people who can assist us in being the person God called us to be.
Expand our territory helps us to not settle for the land and territory we currently have. The bible says in Isaiah 54:2 2"Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs.” This verse tells us we have to not settle for what we have but God can give us what we prepare for.
Setup your children’s children to be great signifies the importance of thinking generationally. The bible says in Proverbs 13:22 “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children…” When a person has this kind of mindset they will understand the importance of every decision they make.
Survive the tricks of the enemy is what I call the final and important key to us being a success. The bible says in Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”. There are enemies in the natural and spiritual trying to take us out. We can survive tricks of the enemy when we know we have the weapons to survive any of those tricks.
