Hello dear😃 I’m happy to see you again! It’s another day of relearning, unlearning and learning for us! I’m sure you are curious. Hope you are ready? Oh yes! I am. So I decided to raise a matter that’s a bit controversial. Just follow me😉.
So I saw a picture on a friend’s status and it provoked a lot of questions. I’ve always had the notion that as a believer, you automatically should not lack anything good, you should do well in every sphere/phase of life. I believed overtime that failure shouldn’t be recorded in the life of one who believes and have a relationship with Jesus. But something struck me when I saw that picture; it was that “GOD DOESN’T WASTE RESOURCES”. I’ll tell you how.
So we have 10 World most richest men in the world and 2 out of them barely know God (I mean having a good relationship with the Father through Jesus). We also have here in Nigeria, top businesses in the whole of Nigeria that none was established by people who know God. Down to the universities, how come it’s unbelievers that bag the First Class Honors. How come it’s 90% same set of people that has the final say over the Nation. It’s something to ponder on trust me!. Well my friend and I through our discussion came up with this deductions:
√ There is a price; The shocking truth is no one has ever become great on Earth by prayer “ALONE”. There’s a place for work! Yes there is a PRICE for greatness, influence, authority and power and prayer alone cannot deliver those into your hands.
√ Seeking/Knowing God and becoming a successful person in life are two sides of a coin independent of each other; you can know God and still fail in Life! You can be successful in Life and still not know God! Oh God help me here! I hope you are following me? This is where most of my fellow believers missed it including Me! I’ve had to not put my effort and best in a thing and expect God to do miracles, and God didn’t! Let’s understand that God gave us brains for something! He gave us the mind for something! He gave us hands not only to lift them up in a worship service. He gave us all this to put them to work! Whoo! I know someone needs to see this. Finally…
I’ll stop by saying this; IT’S TIME BELIEVERS ESPECIALLY YOUNG BELIEVERS TO PUT IN EFFORT TO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO CARRY OUT. You can’t become that influential person God told you if you don’t do the necessary work and networking, you can’t be a medical doctor if you don’t pass exams in the medical school! Let’s not make God a liar (I’m also talking to myself trust me).
Okay! This is supposed to be as interactive as possible because our views and perspective may not be the same. Just like before please feel free to air your mind in the comment box. I’m not raising this as a conclusion, I’m raising it to see what we think about this, after that we might then come to a conclusion 😅. Lol.
