Sometimes we desire human validation before we activate our assignment and what God has placed in our hearts. It could be starting a non-profit organization, creating a youth empowerment group or even launching a new business.
Human Validation is a Destiny Interceptor
Destinies are being derailed because we consistently seek validation before activation. The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked; who can know it? That’s in the Word. There is a story of Saul who later became known as Apostle Paul.
When God called him, he didn’t immediately run off to find apostles who were more experienced than him. He did not consult any human being. Instead, he went to Arabia, then later returned to Damascus. It was after three years that he went to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Peter and stayed with him for 15 days.
Sometimes you need time for yourself to figure things out and to grow before you connect with the experts. Some folks cannot function or make decisions without speaking to someone else, to know whether they agree or not. Many people miss blessings, opportunities and divine connections because they are looking for validation from people before they proceed.
You are good enough.
You are smart.
You can carry out the project.
You are equipped to proceed.
What happens when we seek validation before activation?
When you seek validation before you activate, these can happen.
1. Bad advice, because:
(a) they [“experts”] think they know everything; they have been there, done that and you know absolutely nothing.
(b) they do not understand the call of God upon your life or the vision.
(c) you must follow “religion” and “that is how we have always done it.”
2. Jealousy that leads to misdirection or evil diversion.
3. Unnecessary delays, because some folks just have strange protocols that they want you to follow. Hence, because of the quest for validation, the activation of your assignment is delayed.
4. Disobedience, because you failed [hesitated, inquired of human first] to act immediately and carry out what the Lord has instructed you. What did the Lord place in your heart? What have you done with the divine mandate?
Wise counsel is important but discern and know who you are seeking it from. Validation and the quest of acceptance can ruin your destiny because sincere intentions are not known. This does not mean that you should be paranoid or not trust anyone but a call to be wise and discern.
Now you have read about human validation, when are you going to launch?
