Understanding who you are, your strengths, weaknesses, potentials and assignment on earth is the beginning of understanding. Hence, you can’t grow beyond the level of what you know and understand about yourself, because your moment of understanding who you truly are, is the beginning of understanding how your fulfilment in life will be formed.
Interestingly, one notable truth about the power of understanding oneself is that, it’s only God that can best define who you are because a manufacturer is the only one that can best describe his product. Therefore, to know and understand who you are, there’s a need for you to have a personal fellowship with your Creator in order to know how to use your life.
From the above postulation, and in relation to the ability (Holy Spirit) He’s given us to understand who we are, it’s important for us to have something I called self conference i.e meeting with oneself, in order to define ourselves in contrast to other’s opinion about us.
Lovingly, I have come to realize from my informal research that, the crux of the matter is that, the problem is not with God but with man. God had given us all things that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him that has called us unto Glory and virtue. So, your knowledge of what God has made you (that can only be found in His Word) and the ability to apply them is what will give you fulfillment in life.
Conclusively and in summary, it’s advisable to STUDY YOURSELF (through the help of Holy Ghost) TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED UNTO YOURSELF BEFORE YOU SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED UNTO MEN. Because man will always suggest who they think you are. Therefore, if you don’t sit to understand who you are, you will never be able to stand tall among destiny fulfillers. Don’t see yourself from people’s perception about you but what God says about you.
