"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well" (Psalms 139:14).

The greatest tragedy that you can allow in your life is to allow other people define you.
When you allow people gain an unguarded access to your thoughts, you give them the control over your mind. We don't take actions that was not a product of our thoughts. You believe that you need to get a job, do a legal business or be creative with your talents thereby adding value to lives in order for you to earn a living but someone has come to change your mindset that you can't earn so much by doing what is right, you should steal, dupe people, engage in cyber crime, become a prostitute etc to earn a living.
Don't allow them define you, stand for what you believe. It may take time but you will certainly become prosperous that you will become a blessing to nations.

When you allow people define what you see, they are in control of your vision which means you have no vision for your future.
When your friends feed your eyes with the wrong pictures such as pornographic videos and pictures, they make you loose the vision of where you are going to in life. Instead of thinking of how to achieve your dreams you are thinking of those immoral images you have watched and how to practice it. You are doing this at the mercy of your destiny. Feed your eyes with the future you want not the future that you don't want and the devil is suggesting that wrong vision through the people around you.

Don't let them define your Future...

When you allow people define your achievement and possessions, they will place you in a definite Position lower than theirs or even want you to be average like them.
People can be very jealous and afraid of your success, you are doing what is right but they see it as wrong because they don't want you to be greater than them. They begin to criticize everything you do. When you buy a car as a Pastor they say you used offering money when you have other streams of income which they don't know. They say you bribed your way to get an award for your service in your company when you never did. When you build a mansion they say you are a ritualist when it took you sleepless night to invest yourself into your dreams. They are enemies of your success and want you to live in poverty like them. If on the other hand as they are talking you down it becomes a reason to hide in your shell like a snail, you will never get to lime light. Don't mind them, mind your dreams and don't give them the room to define your future.

When people define where you go, you give them charge over the direction of your future and destiny.
Your association can take you to the promised land or can hold you spell bound in Egypt. If your destination is to the promise land then move towards that destination, don't allow anyone take you to their destination that will not add any value to your future. They take you to places just to distract you from focusing on your path to destiny.
When people determine your looks, you will want to be a photocopy of somebody else so that you can look acceptable to people especially that of a super star. Be natural in your looks. You are wonderful the way you are. People have allowed other people to make them change their skin colour from dark to fair because of the opinion of others about them, some have changed or made adjustment in their body structure. If you are slim don't wish to make yourself fat and if you are fat don't make yourself slim so that you can be accepted. Your friends and the love of your life will not need you to change your body structure so they can love you.

Who should define you:

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."(Jeremiah 29:11)

The only person that you should allow define you is God not you not anybody, not even you. Your life should be defined based on what God says about you in his Word. This is why you should spend time meditating on the Word of God. We all learn from people around us, they make huge impact in our lives but we should not allow them define who we are. They can add to us, we can copy what we know is good from them and add to our lives but it is wrong to want to be a photocopy of someone else. God made you Original, Authentic and Unique (OAU).

God created you so allow Him define you not anyone, He knows what's best for you. Live Victoriously as the Victor He has made you to be in Him.

There is a void in every man that not wealth, fame,social status, sex, drink, fun and the likes can fill. It is only God that can fill that void, what is that void that is missing? It is the absence of JESUS IN YOUR LIFE AND ALL HE OFFERS such as peace, love, righteousness and joy in the Holy Ghost. You have taken the wheel of your life all by yourself and like Peter you have caught nothing with your life, this is the time to allow Jesus Christ into your boat (life) so he can help you to catch the fullness of life in him that gives you a meaningful life on earth and defines your eternal destination.
If you want to surrender to Jesus Christ why not say this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you forgive me of my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught to fellowship there.
