Don’t Get Carried Away

June 26, 2014 6 comments

In the serenity or bustle of life the leaves may be blown away by the slightest of a gentle breeze or the tempest of the strong winds. Many doctrines, news reports, beliefs and doubts will seek to promote themselves as masters of one’s life such that your trajectory in life is not determined by you but by the fears planted within one’s life course. In time the strongest of the leaves which is not fed wilts and the gentlest of the breeze will carry it away.

In life decide what you believe in and stand strong by your standards. Life is not always poetic and romantic in most cases it will prove to be filled with storms and obstacles not meant to urge you on but to wilt your attempt to greatness. Greatness is not the achievement of the impossible but the fulfillment of one’s potential. The fulfillment of one’s potential is not in the strength of one’s stance but in the connection to the roots that nourish your beliefs. Within each passing moment the world will change, new concoctions will be stirred and fed to the world but do not be swayed by the latest hint of wisdom that drowns a nation but be convinced by the truth that empowers the roots.

In you stay in life, the sun will increase its heat, the winter will bring a chill to occasions but stay strong, connected to your roots that nourish who you are. In the tempest of the moment do not be convinced by the argument but be convinced by the truth that has no doubt. If you do not stand or stay connected to your roots you will be carried away from that which was yours. Life will sway you into a breeze like a wilted leaf and your destiny will be decided by the will of the winds. Every gossip has its merit buts its standard may not be for your standing. Test all things never be indoctrinated by a small stream of water, it may have no eternal source but may just be a stream created from a bucket of water poured on the ground. Test the source of the water before you believe in its power to nourish you. True nourishment is not in the temporary but in the everlasting.

Don’t get carried away with every word that passes your way. Any journey must prove itself before it is taken. The wise know that the victory of the journey is not in arrival but in the map. Do not be swayed by that which has no plotting that you can see, or else you may be dumped in the ditches of life and never have a fighting chance. Find the map and see the alternative routes, you might one day in your journey need to change course. Know where you come from before you know where you are going, not every destiny is ripe with riches but where you come from sets the standard of what you must achieve in equality or beyond.

In time the word does change but let your roots be strong. Do not be carried away.

As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;

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.

He Said,” It is finished”, not that He is finished

October 16, 2012 Leave a comment

Though they might take Isaac’s well that he spent all that effort digging but it did not mean he was finished it just meant he had proven he was fruitful and now he had to show he could multiply.

On the cross as he lay there dying he declared it is finished but it did not mean he was finished it just meant he was moving to another level. The seed may die in the ground but soon it will break through the soil to reveal its glory in a tree of life. Though a generation may perish in a desert it does not mean the nation is doomed, it just meant they had multiplied enough to find dominion for the next generation, Jericho was going to go down. It is finished does not mean you are done it just means that for this level you have done what you could it is time for another level of greater glory.

When they took away his well of water, it was not time for him to despair but rather it was time to prove that he could multiply. Sometimes the place you are in might get too hot or cold so that you move to another place to create greater blessings and find greater favor. Multiplication cannot happen until one fruit gives itself up to form the seed for the next generation of fruits. From one seed a nation can be born, so Abraham though today you look like fool tomorrow they will call you father of nations.

Your friends might banish you from their social circles, but if you stick to what you know then yes it is finished that you are no longer with them but you are certainly not finished because sooner than later you will have a bush experience, Moses. Sooner than later you will rise and not only will you have friends in a nation but God shall be your friend that you have conversation with. The stone they reject will always become the foundation stone. Before his death he only had twelve disciples but on his resurrection he had millions of disciples. For a moment they look at you and say you are finished but God has a plan. They might say you don’t have a plan but suddenly you will rise and a giant you will slay. Your brothers and sisters might have left you in the wilderness to tend to sheep but if you hold on to what you believe they will soon come to serve you. Left to die they will see you strong and healthy on the throne, Joseph.

It is finished means it is over by their standards but by God’s standard it is the beginning of something new, it is the multiplication of a fruit that everyone despised. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe, let them fight you for what you believe in but remember this, every night has a morning, in the end of it all, truth will always outlast the lies. Jesus on the cross declared it is finished, but he was not finished, he was just implementing the next level of His plan. Likewise whether they took your business, destroyed your work, laughed at you, embarrassed you or disliked you, carry on with what you do best, resurrect and soon they will know that it was finished but you were not finished.

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.

40 Days and 40 Years

October 8, 2012 3 comments

Sometimes the strength of the desert is in the weakness of the minds, however in all things every experience no matter how grave it is there is always a lesson to be learnt, lessons of strategy, experience and strength of mind.

When all is gone and the source of all that you hold dear is no more there must be one thing that never leaves you. Unfortunately it cannot be a person, money, business, residence, nations but it must be God. When stuck in the desert it is a time to know that God is your provider and that in all things He will provide. For forty days Jesus was in the wilderness and for forty years the Israelites were seemingly stuck there and in that time they learnt that Jehovah is Jehovah-Jireh, he will provide. If you are still alive then it means you have a provision sustaining you. For forty days or forty years you learn that only God will remain after everything else is gone, after everything is said, only God will remain true.

When isolated in a place of nothingness and hopelessness, the mind can quickly lose its grip on life resulting in chaos and panic. However when stuck in a desert two choices can present themselves, to find hopelessness or to find faith. Before us is always a choice, death or life and so we choose life. Faith is strength of mind to act upon that which your mind holds strongly to and believes in. In the absence of all signs of hope or life, for how long will you hold on to what you value the most? In the test of the wilderness when there are no signs of progress will one hold on to the strength of mind or will one fall to the despair of life? After the time of forty days or forty years your minds resolution will be tested, you will be tempted or you will be discouraged by tales of giants but in all this your mind must remain resolute to what you believe.

For Jericho to be appreciated it is necessary to understand lack and the times. To understand plenty it is best to have understood barrenness, how can a savior preach about the abundance of life without understanding the emptiness of life? To relate a message to a people one must have seen their lives and understood them. Sometimes the desert experience is simply a lesson in understanding lack in order to fully know plenty. Don’t be too shocked because there is a time for everything, a person who has understood the times will store their harvest for future years when there is no food, for in lack they have understood that plenty is but a season. A person who has understood the times will know that lack is also but for a season, soon the morning will bring good tidings of grace, in all times plenty and lack can be prepared for.

Before the birth of life a pain is experienced but why transit from a place of death to death, rather when in the moment of a desert don’t transit to another desert but transit to the land of plenty. Your desert is a place of strategy and a place of transition. Use that time wisely to engage your mind in cleverness, be wise and plot your victory not your battle. From a place of the desert you no longer plot to chance victory but because you have seen lack you prepare a battle that wins you the war. In the wilderness you strategize how your ministry will run, and who you will run with. Don’t be moved by tale bearers but be moved by the call of victory.

How Assumption Killed the Rabbit

October 3, 2012 2 comments

If you never realize your stupidity your intelligence might never increase, don’t think you are intelligent until you measure your foolishness. Be smart don’t be like the rabbit that was killed by assumption.

Don’t assume the people you save will always come to your aid, they might be the first ones to accuse you or kill you, look at Jesus and how he died. Always ask for the salt when you sit to eat but make sure you are sitting with people whose company you enjoy, otherwise the salt will not make any difference. I love you will not always mean the same, but at least make sure you understand what “I hate you” means because you might mistake the two. I was once insulted by a man who assumed I was poor, so I traded the insult for inspiration to help the man realize his ignorance, some insults are opportunities to educate others. When you look at the moon don’t be naïve enough to think that the sun is not shining, always take situations for what they are not what they seem otherwise you might get killed by assumption.

The wisest person knows that all people are ignorant of something only the true idiots believe they can win every argument in life. Be clever enough to have God on your side, but don’t be stupid enough to think God will not punish you for wrong doing. If you want to live longer than anyone else then stretch your imagination but don’t cross the road whilst day dreaming, the drivers on the road might also be day dreaming. If mathematics is difficult then don’t bother being rich because you will soon lose all your money, at least understand multiplication and addition. A fool thinks having capital means owning business but does not realize that turnover and profit are the definition of what business is.

A certain person once invested a million dollars in house, but forgot to remove the termites under the house. A strong woman is not one who can do everything it is a woman who is strong enough to hold her tongue. A real man is usually not made of steel but of vision that leads others to safety. When you find a wise man bring him over to me and I will show you a fool who brought a wise man. We may ask why did the chicken cross the road and forget why did the road allowed the chicken to cross, if people are going to step on you make sure you are made of tar at least you can survive for generations. A rabbit once made friends with a human assuming he was too cute for the human to kill, but by the end of the day when there was a drought, the rabbit found himself in the pot as meat for the human’s kids. People will tell you they are loyal to you but be careful you might become food for their ambitions.

Secrets are not meant to be spread but if a secret becomes open, look people straight in the eye and say profess ignorance, that’s the only hope you have. Sometimes fortune will knock on your day, when you answer the door make sure you have a rope to tie fortune for as long as possible in the house. Some dogs will bark but some will not but respect them all for they are all dogs. Here is eh thing about assumption your mother will never tell you; assumption I the mother of laziness. Only lazy people will live their life assuming everything never asking, or looking for the truth. How do you notice a lazy and ignorant person, just look at the size of their assumptions but don’t forget, we are all ignorant of a lot of things.

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.
