The Beauty of A Foundation

January 27, 2014 1 comment

Don’t be in a rush to build or buy anything unless if you have mastered the art of foundation building. The patience of patience is no in the ability to wait but in the wisdom to allow time for the foundation to be set.

In too many things we believe if we are waiting then we can be labelled as wise. Waiting for the sake of waiting does not help you or anyone. Any person on the planet can wait, but only those who know when the foundation is done know when to stop waiting. A person can wait for a promotion their entire life but the promotion might never come. Every promotion has a foundation and if that foundation has been built but the promotion has not come then one must move on. Waiting is not the essence of time but the prelude to the completion of the foundation.

Many people believe that if they wait long enough then their reward will come without realizing that the reward is dependent on the foundation that has been laid. If the foundation has not been laid the reward never comes. One does not become the footballer of the year because you were patient but one attains that status because you laid the foundation within the patience. Good things are delivered within time but in that time a seed for harvest must have been planted. A man does not retire willingly because it is time but will volunteer to retire if the foundation of his future has been secured. Think of patience as a vast sea of time in which one can pursue their targets and lay the foundation, such that when the sea has been crossed the reward will then be accessible depending on the foundation laid.

The beauty of a foundation is that once it is built it cannot be shaken or taken away from you easily. Removing the strong foundation of a house is not the weak person’s mission, it takes supreme effort. Likewise, the foundation of the mind cannot be shaken or taken away from you. What you build within the patience of life which is laid on a foundation is yours to keep. A company may be taken away from an entrepreneur but the foundation of starting a new company can never be removed.

The Fight Code

October 10, 2012 4 comments

When stuck in a situation that requires you to fight, then use whatever it is that you have. What you have before you acquire anything else are words, people, and time. Your best weapon in life could be either of these three. You might wait for capital, miracles, saviors which may never come but the best you should do is use what you have. Don’t look to others or to anything else but always make sure your greatest weapon is the one that no one can take away from you, which is yourself.

Just as any deck of cards has a joker so must you carry one. A secret weapon which you never advertise to anyone, it might not win you the war but when the time comes it must gain you ground or cause enough damage for you to be respected. There are many battles in life but always choose your weapons with care.

Just as the chess board has a queen piece always have an unexpected action. In life people will always work with assumptions, they will look at you and measure you according to what they see, but always be ready to do the unexpected. When the battle thinks it has you beaten a surprise move might bring doubt to the enemy and win you the war.

Whenever you fight, fight in twos. Don’t carry a sword only but carry a dagger, don’t carry a cross bow only but bring a sword, whatever it is you bring to the table always make sure you have a backup plan, a way out, another ticket reference, another line for communication, more than one bank account, more than one car, because you never know what the times will bring and what the fight will bring to you. Always remember a marriage takes two and not one.

When you fight look at the prize you are fighting for, if you can’t see it then walk away from the battle until you can see it. A battle entered without a vision is like warrior fighting in the dark with no weapon, eventually that warrior will die. If you don’t know what you are fighting then don’t fight, if you can’t measure what you are fighting for then don’t step on to the battle field, if you can’t have what you are fighting for after you win the battle then don’t bother to fight for it. If your faith cannot see the substance then it is not faith, then your belief is doomed.

Every fight has its beginning and end if you don’t know where the beginning is or where the end is then it’s not a fight it’s a massacre, you will be massacred. Most massacres victims cannot see where the fight came from and why it came; they will die and never know when it will end. Stand up for what you believe in but if you don’t know where it starts or ends then don’t bother. Never believe in a religion whose beginning you don’t understand or whose end has no prize for you.

A Champion’s Resolve

September 10, 2012 3 comments

And now faith, hope, charity, these three remain but in the end there can only be one. Everyone will enter the race but only the champions will win the race. No champion has been born, every champion has been trained. I am a champion should be your word today.

The greatest commandment given relates to the heart, mind, soul and spirit. The difference between the champion and the competitor in life is that the champion has found the resolve to be one, to be one in body, mind and spirit. A kingdom divided will soon fall. Many times most people will lose because they lacked focus, their mind said one thing but their body did the other thing, or their body out of instinct and habit acted but the mind paid no attention. It is at that point of separation that victories are lost and real champions are proved. At that moment of tiredness when the body refuses the minds resolve, a race is lost, at that moment when the mind wanders the body loses its resolve.

Past victories are not a standard a champion lives by they are a target to beat. Don’t dwell on the past victory but let it be a testimony that you can do better. A champion resolves to stay in the race not because they can win the race but because they have noticed they are in the race. If you intend to enter a race then enter it with the resolve to win it. There are many domains in life in which anyone can excel but few ever will because few will ever resolve to excel.

Faith is good but in the moment of a double mind faith will account for nothing. Believing and acting is good for progress in life but doubt can be a brick pulled out of the wall, the building will fall. The road of a champion is narrow it is never wide. A man who makes a thousand decisions will never beat a man who makes one decision and stays with it. A champion only has one direction and chooses not to know any other. If in life you have a chosen to be king then be king after all, no one can save two masters. If the yes is not a yes then let it be a no, in between is the land of those who will never be champions. Should you choose to walk on water then walk on water, don’t doubt otherwise you will sink and drown. Don’t cross the desert to cast doubt on your survival or else a generation will be lost, but believe you are greater than the grasshopper. See yourself as a giant but let your mind and body be one.

Every champion must train to find discipline in life. A giant is not easily killed simply by belief, but a giant is killed by one whose practice has become perfect. If you are a visionary then perfect your visions, if you are wise then eat knowledge daily. No champion has been born, every champion has been trained. Big companies are not big because they are big they are big because they learnt how to be big. It’s easy to walk in front of a people but it is another thing to organize the people, practice organization after all it is next to perfection.

Finally let your thoughts be pure and without doubt. Let your mind see only that which you resolve to do. Love those you love unconditionally, plan with all your resolve, and let your mind be consumed by your resolve. The greatest surgeons are great because their minds see their procedures before they operate. It’s like this, write the vision down and make it plain.

Genesis One Verse Two

August 2, 2012 3 comments

Never throw pearls in front of a pig it might trample the pearls, everything may have a solution just make sure the solution is in the right place. Every problem has a solution and all treasures are guarded by a sentinel called sacrifice;

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. There is a science to problems for those who understand the beginning of anything. Some problems have no form, they are situations which present themselves but have no form of structure or use. They seem like they cannot be used for anything. Some people are like that, they have no form in purpose or they think they don’t. In the end the world just seems stagnant simply because their form has no objective. When you see that life is just stagnant, it’s because the situation has not had a form defined. Everything has a time and season, if it’s not moving its because the form is not for that season. Sometimes we pray to have a house or a business when we have no form defined, in other words we pray for a house but we are not ready to own a house, we have no structure in our lives. Sometimes we pray for business but we have no form in how to manage, we lack the understanding of cash flow. A prayer may be delayed simply because pearls cannot be thrown in front of a pig until the pig learns to understand the value of the pearls or the pig takes another form that understands the pearls. Some prayers are already answered but because we have the wrong form we cannot see the solutions. And Jesus said “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you”.

And the earth was without form, and void; here is the thing about barren lands, they disqualify themselves from the blessings of a crop. When you invest in nothing you reap nothing, when you meditate on nothing you achieve nothing, when you are without form you make yourself void of any progressive outcome. Opportunities will come but because you have no form they will pass you by. You can run the race but if you don’t participate in the rules your efforts are disqualified. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness! A house cannot be built on sand and stand otherwise it’s a waste, likewise favour, blessings and riches cannot be bestowed to that which has no form. If you cannot find a partner, work on yourself and blame no one, if life is unfair be fair to yourself and fight for you, if they steal from you then pick yourself up and recover your belongings. When you take a form then what you seek you will find, the door you know will be opened, and what you ask you will find. After all why do you look on the splinter that is in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? Take a form.

When there is no form there is only darkness, not the lack of light but the lack of life, progress and abundance. A person might wake up every day, go to work and feel they are living life yet they are in the dark all along, not knowing where their substance comes from. Most people that live in the dark believe man shall live on bread alone not understanding that bread may fall from heaven everyday but every spirit returns where it came from. So they live and think that their biggest struggles are things like rent, food to eat, houses to buy and cars to own not understanding that everything is but is not at the same time. Opportunity belongs to all people but only a few take it. Anyone can sacrifice but few will choose to. All treasures are guarded by a sentinel called sacrifice; to obtain that treasure one must conquer that sentinel.

Now here is the thing about form, it only makes sense when the spirit has established its position which is on top and not at the bottom. If the spirit is not established then the form is of no use. In the absence of the spirit there is no living soul, a person is only but dirt. Be blessed.

A Clever Mind, Cleverer than the Dark

July 30, 2012 4 comments

And the unjust steward’s lord commended him because he had done wisely. For the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light

It is one thing to hope, have faith, love or even pray for a thing but it is another entirely different thing to participate in it. The clever person knows that life is participation, not a passive state. So in most times the most religious person unfortunately not understanding this, concentrates in the passiveness and lacks the participation. In the end two people can hope for riches but the one who invests will be richer, two people can own a field but the one who plants will reap a harvest, two people can believe in God but the one who acts on his word will be the favored one, two people can run the same race but the one who practices more will last longer and triumph more. It rains on the good and evil but the wise one will know how to use the rain.

The clever person understands that in life there is thing called favor. Favor is what other people choose to call luck. It is when you try something and somehow things go your way and people say you were lucky. When you participate in something you will find favor. Favor finds those who are willing to act on something. Two teams can play a game but the one who makes the most shots on target has greater favor in finding the goals they need, two people can start a business but the one who acts more in the their marketing plan will get favor, two people can sell the same product but the one who is always trying to be more innovative will find favor. He who carefully seeks good gets favor; but he who seeks mischief, it shall come to him. Participate and the favor will come to you.

The clever person understands that they are blessed already before they start anything. If a person wears a suit and you don’t that does not make them more human than you it just means they are wearing a suit and you are not. We are all created equal and blessings are for all. The over religious forgets that they are blessed and are always looking or praying for a blessing yet they already have it. Is it not obvious that all you need to do is to be the part and the blessing is activated? If you are not living the part how can the blessing be activated; by living in a certain way that’s the key that turns the blessing that is already there. After all blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Be the part, participate, favor will come and the blessing will be activated by your actions.

The clever mind understands that in all things persistency pays. The clever person knows that if you never give up and set your goals accordingly that eventually the door will open. If the tree does not yield fruit in good time, cut it down and plant new trees, if your oil is flowing and there are not enough vessels in the house then borrow a vessel soon you will afford more vessels for yourself, if they sell you to another country then prosper in that country, if they take your only well that had water then dig another one, if they cross the waters without you then follow in style and walk on water, if the devil is persistent in tempting you then be persistent in rejecting him, if life seems to happen to others then be persistent and happen to life. Participate, favor comes, blessings are activated and be persistent on what you need.

Finally the clever mind understands that God is the source of all things, the clever person gives back what he or she must. The clever person knows that the world is round, what was will be, what flowed will flow again, what ceased will start again, what you held will return to you. Be not afraid but step out, participate, find favor, you are blessed and be persistent. In this give the best of yourself and don’t be petty.

Genesis One Verse One

July 26, 2012 5 comments

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven is taken by violence and the violent take it by force.

In the beginning, is a statement that simple defines that everything has its beginning. Every business, marriage, relationship, or event in life has its beginning. Every thought has its inspiration, every baby has his or her first steps, every life has its first conception but no one said the beginning starts with a place of order. Normally the beginning of a solution starts from a place of confusion, the beginning of truth starts from a place of lack of the truth; and so in the story the beginning start with a world which had no form, which was dark and nothing lived there hence the beginning. So in life no matter what you want you want to start just be prepared to understand that it starts from a point of nothingness.

In the beginning God, is a statement that simply qualifies that if you are to have a beginning then let that beginning be grounded within the presence of God. Whether it be a business, life, relationships, marriages, or events in life let the beginning be set in the presence of God. Before David could pursue the enemy he had to ask God so that the beginning of his battle declares the presence of God, before you start your day let your beginning be with God, before you sleep, before you drive, before you eat, before you breathe let your beginning be with God after all people ought to pray without ceasing.

Created, is simply a word that declares how everything needs a level of movement, a level of force, an effort which displaces one thing to make way for another. Violence does not always mean the committing of a crime it can also mean the movement of things, the change that requires force, the need for power, the need for work and only those who understand this have real faith. Faith is without works is dead because in the absence of action then that which is believed ceases in the mind of the believer. If you never venture into the created zone then you never make anything happen in life. From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven is taken by violence and the violent take it by force.

The heavens and the earth, is an order of creation. The heaven is the spiritual and the earth the physical. For anything you create to stand in time and in eternity it has to have a spiritual representation before it can have a physical state, in other words if the spiritual is missing then the physical will certainly crumble in time. If you are to start a business then let the spiritual be set first, if the marriage is to work then let the spiritual be made first, if the relationship is to be successful then let the spiritual be anchored first, if the event is to have any substance then let the event be grounded in the spiritual first. Let the heavens be made first before we have the physical.

Creation ends with one phrase, it was very good, in this is the power that lets you understand that if you are walking with God then it’s all good. Since God made the heavens and the earth then God is in charge. All things work for good for those who believe, if God is for us who can be against us. When they lie to you, it’s all good because God is with you, when they challenge you it’s all good, when they accuse you it’s all good, when they steal from you it’s all good.

The finally the statement is complete, in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. This is the beginning of the belief in God and the understanding of life. From this is the wisdom of how the believer should function.

The Pressure of Prayer 3: Walking on Water

July 23, 2012 1 comment

I must work the works of Him who sent Me, while it is day. Night comes when no man can work. Prepare yourself to walk on water.

After feeding the multitudes with five loaves and two fish, instead of celebrating the amazing feat Jesus instead goes up to pray up in the mountain. His disciples on the other hand go on to cross the waters in the boat, not really worrying on how their master will cross the same waters also. In life you will find that that the people you planned to do things with will leave you or disappoint you; and in many times you will have decisions to make which require courage. You will face decisions that require you doing something you have never done before like walking on water.

Before you do anything it is important to realize that everything has a plan, whether you are conscious of it or not or whether you participate in the planning or not there is always a plan. Being conscious of the plan and participating in the plan is a decision we have to make. Your life is planned already before you are born, the fact that they are schools, universities, social groups, hospitals, streets, stores, phones and everything that exists means your life already has a plan. Before you are born, there is plan for you to be born in a clinic, the parents that you will have, the schools you will attend, the universities that you will attend and the list goes on, what makes the difference is how you participate and if you are aware of it. In other words you have the power to change the plan, enhance it and get a better plan. For some people they die in the same neighborhoods and never experience anything new, they marry the type of people their environment and exposure planned for them, they make the decisions that are expected of them, they go to the schools that are afforded to them and then they have children that will experience what they think they planned but it was never their actually plan. What does this have to do with prayer and walking on water?

Jesus prays in the early watches of the day which means it was midnight into early morning before four o’clock in the morning. Instead of rushing to the boat so that they cross the waters he elects to pray, not only to give thanks for the day but to prepare for the day. In your life you participate in the plans of the day by setting into motion the plans of the heavens. For example, in order for your plans to work you must have created or participated in the plans and understood the will of God. During prayer this is when the blueprint of the day is set, this is when the vision of what will be done is constructed. No person builds a building without first drawing the blueprint otherwise that person will be looked upon as a fool. Similarly how then can a person start a day without imagining what they need to achieve in the day. No doubt Jesus would have been praying for the next events about to take place, after all there is a season for all things. Most of us pray for routines and not for the new things in our lives, we pray to survive according to the way the world turns and not according to what we can actually achieve in life. In other words we are just living another person’s or society’s plan.

The disciples on the other hand, who were in the boat, had not gone for so long such that after a few miles they were stuck in the waters as they had not prepared for the day they just went out and thought they would just cross. In their minds Jesus had been left far back. In your life people will leave you and think you are done for but for one who plans there comes a time when you will overtake those who have no plan. There comes a time when you will dare to do something different, instead of looking for a boat which is what everyone else does you will do what others think is impossible, you will walk on water. When you plan your things and implement them, when they are now working people will think you used some magic, corruption or something supernatural simply because you would have moved so fast in their eyes that they think you are a wonder. The disciples see Jesus walking on water and they think he is a ghost simply because they thought they had left him behind.

People ought to pray always is not just a statement it is a strategy of life. Don’t build without the vision and don’t start a journey without understanding the route. Make your plans, pray your plans into reality when it is now day implement them. At night is not just the time to relax it is a time to construct the plans and see them in faith, when day comes it is time to make it happen.
