Luke 8:22-26 and it happened on a certain day that He went into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them; Let us go over to the other side of the lake. And they put out to sea. (23) But as they sailed, He fell asleep. And a storm of wind came onto the lake. And they were being filled with water and were in jeopardy. (24) And they came to Him and awakened Him, saying, Master, Master, we are perishing! Then being aroused, He rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was calm. (25) And He said to them, where is your faith? And being afraid, they marveled, saying to one another, what manner of man is this!? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him! (26) And they sailed down to the country of the Gadarenes, which is across from Galilee.

God did not created you to live a boring mundane life but to live a life
It will be your responsibility to find and fulfill the destiny God has given you.You can choose your :
• But not your destiny, you were created at this time for a specific purpose to fulfill, in fact God had a purpose and looked down the corridors of time and said you would be the perfect person to accomplish the goal.
• Your purpose will bring excitement to your life walking in your Gods given purpose will bring peace and fulfillment and a sense of belonging.
You a created an original, unique and special so be yourself, run your race. Don’t compare with other people because it is not wise. God has put a lot more in you than you’re living out. This might shock you but your greatest fear should not be death, your greatest fear should be that die to soon , too easily before God is finished with you, You don’t want to die prematurely that’s when you haven’t fully explored the purpose or potential that God created you for.
God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors, the ransom he paid was not silver or gold it was more precious than that it was the blood of his son Jesus.

Life is a journey and adventure, God has planned out a wonderful life and his desire is for us to live the abundant life. With nothing missing and nothing broken
John 10:10 the thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly
Most people mistakenly think that Jesus was able to work wonders to perform miracles and live above sin because he divine powers that we don’t have. Thus they never really aspired to live like he lived. Oh my they say with great humility “I could never live like Jesus did, after all he had an advantage he was God.”
They don’t realize that when Jesus came to earth he voluntarily gave up that advantage, living life here not as God but as Man. He had no supernatural powers. He had no ability to perform miracles until he was anointed with the holy sprit, he worked miracles not by his own power but by the power of the father saying” the father witch lives in me, he doeth the works (John 14:10). And when he prayed he prayed not as a divine one who had authority as God, but as a man who walked in obedience to God.
