QUOTE OF THE DAY: “LIFE’S OPPORTUNITIES ARE NOT HERALDED WITH TRUMPETS AND FUNFARE”

ANCHOR TEXT: “Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house”

Matthew 24:17.

When an opportunity comes knocking, it does not wait long if it meets unpreparedness. It is an impatient visitor that moves away from whoever is not prepared to receive it and may never return, hence the saying: opportunity once lost may never be regained.  Life does not convey opportunities with trumpets and funfare, so you must be sensitive, prepared, especially for something you have been waiting for. While waiting and trusting God for breakthrough and colourful showing of His grace on you; never allow a contrary voice speak to you. Never get discouraged or relent in well doing. Many a times, it is when the answer to your prayer is just a moment away that discouragement comes. If you allow it, the enemy has already succeeded in robbing you of your glorious destiny. (more…)

PATIENCE WITH GOD

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “IT TAKES OBEDIENCE AND PATIENCE TO WALK WITH GOD”

ANCHOR TEXT: “We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised”

Hebrews 6:12.

No one fully grasps the mind of an author by just reading a chapter, but until the entire book is patiently read through. Life is structured such that we can’t understand everything all at once. Life happens in parts. Events unfold in phases-why? To prevent us from being scared; to trigger our curiosity; to make life adventurous and to build in us patience. For instance, the initial developmental stages of a butterfly do not seem attractive, but with patience and time, a brightly coloured butterfly incredibly emerges. No butterfly that wants to emerge well without any deformity will ever circumvent that natural procedure. Likewise, it takes patience and faith to understand God. As you enter into a journey with God, initially, things may not be as expected. The adventure may not be reasonable, and could be frustrating at the outset, but as event progressively unfolds, things will begin to assume shape. You may not understand God, until you patiently and obediently follow Him. Destiny unfolds in bits according to His own timing and discretion. He Himself decides to punctuate our lives with series of events, one happening at a time. (more…)

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “EVERY PREMATURE BLESSING IS A POTENTIAL PROBLEM”

ANCHOR TEXT: “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay”

Habakkuk 2:3.

Neither you nor I have control over time. God owns the time. Things happen as pre-ordained and pre-arranged by God. Thus, God can never be too fast or too slow. Since God operates with time, you are expected to operate with the knowledge of time and seasons. Former president of the US, Barrack Obama, was given the personality of the year by The Time Magazine in 2008. He appeared to dominate the public sphere completely. This was incredible because almost half of the people in the Nation’s polity have never heard of him before his sudden emergence. After due preparation behind the scene, Obama was revealed to his generation when the time fully came. (more…)
