God has a unique will, plan and purpose for each human life. No one is put on Earth by mistake or by happenstance. The Lord wants to achieve something great in and through every life. But to do that, to know and understand and fulfill God's will for our lives requires obedience on our part.

Finding The Secret To Greatness

In a conversation with Christian musician Lecrae about the importance of talent and obedience, Emmanuel stated that he believes obedience will win out every time. He even points to specific people in the Bible, when they were obedient, that God used to achieve greatness.

"And so, I went on this goose chase, Old Testament of just, like, Moses, with Samson, Esther, whether it was Elijah, like what was the secret?" Emmanuel said. "And they all were obedient, and if they weren't obedient that's when they lost favor."

Emmanuel adds that God can use anyone with any skill level or ability, but the Lord wants someone obedient to Him and His commands. In the Bible, God repeatedly used ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

"Yo, it's not just about being talented," he said. "I always tell people I'm talented, but I ain't that talented, you feel me? I ain't that talented. Are you willing to be obedient? That, to me, is the secret power to greatness."

God is capable of miracles, more than anything we could ever imagine, and he has plans to include us but obedience to Him and His will is a must.
