Popular TV Host Steve Harvey shares an inspiration message during a commercial break on his TV show about how he achieved success.
“The Plan I had for my life, it paled in comparison to the one my creator had for me.”
He later said that his original goal was just to become one of the premiere stand-up comedians in the United States, which was the highest thoughts he had for himself. Thereafter, in 1997, he became one of the original kings of comedy, and the comedy tour lasted for 3 years, and it became one of the highest grossing comedy tours in history. Based on this success story, he thought he had made it, and that he was at the apex of his career, and God has finally catapulted him to make his dream come through. He further said that as a result of this success, he came comfortable and complaisant, and continued making money by hanging around until 2005, when everything came crashing down to the to the point that he lost everything..
So in 2005, at this critical point in his life, he thought his career was completely over, and then he indicated that it was time for him to get out of his old ways, and start allowing God to reveal his purpose for him; and here is how he put it:
“I lost my TV show, I got cancelled… I got fired from the radio show out in LA; like back then, I thought I was making a lot of money, and $9 million dollars was just gone….”
Watch his testimony below, which he summarized by saying:
“God’s plan for you is way bigger than the plan you have for yourself”
