The greatest enemy of your future is ignorance.
If you’ve heard me teach, you’ve heard me ask, “What one thing can you change that will change everything?”
You can change your mind.
You are always one decision away from living the life of your dreams.
The moment you change your mind—the moment you make a decision—your destiny alters.
In our last 4 Points Broadcast, we explored the stage of spiritual maturation that is characterized by structure, discipline, and pressure.
This is the téknon stage (between the ages of 13 and 20) represented by a period of divine mentorship. This is a critical time during which you are groomed as the salt and light you are called to be.
God will place tutors and governors in your life to mature you both intellectually and morally.
This is a time of character development. It is a time of testing; a period of time when God begins to place pressure on you.
You will undergo a chipping away of your tendencies to be rebellious, and to exert your will above God’s will because of the realization that you have a will of your own.
“Yet not my will, but yours be done.”
Luke 22:42 NIV
In this stage, because you are able to dress and care for yourself, you no longer want to be told what to do. You may begin to develop some rough edges that need to be smoothed.
The chipping away is not meant to hurt you, but to enhance the radiance of God’s glory as it shines through you.
You are a diamond in the rough.
Just like diamond cutters chip away at a rough diamond so more light can be reflected through it, the chipping away in your life will allow God’s glory to shine even more radiantly and brilliantly through you.
When the dirty places are polished away and the rough edges are smoothed, your true worth and brilliance will emerge.
This is a stage when God will flood your life with His glory.
People and circumstances are brought to your life not to rub you the wrong way, but to polish you and rub you the right way.
You will experience circumstances socially, emotionally, spiritually, and professionally that will refine you; you will go from being a diamond in the rough to becoming a brilliant force for good.
Rather than being easily influenced, you will become an influencer. This is the stage when a girl becomes a lady and a boy becomes a gentlemen.
You are made beautiful and strong because of intense heat and pressure.
A diamond is one of the hardest known natural materials. Over years it begins to crystallize. What was once chalky coal buried in obscure darkness becomes crystallized carbon that we call “diamond.”
A diamond is not made upon the surface of the earth; it is made hundreds of miles beneath layers of the earth’s mantle. Deep within volcanic fissures is where a diamond is formed.
This is what makes a diamond rare and valuable. It is brought to the surface with violent, magma force!
“The kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.”
As it is with a diamond, so it is with you.
Life’s upheavals indicate God bringing forth your true brilliance, worth, and value hidden deep beneath the surface of who you are.
It is in the heat inherent in your hardship and the pressure inherent in your trials—in those tight places—you’ll discover that your true worth emerges.
Once you get this revelation, you will no longer remain hardened by hardship or bitter from brokenness.
It is from those places that you are truly transformed and that God causes you to rise up out of obscurity—to break free from the clutter of the common—and live into the distinctive and uncommon person of immense worth He created you to be.
And like a diamond exquisitely set, the world will at last witness your divine brilliance—because God Himself will put it on display!
