I went to the inner part of the city I live this past week, and there I saw something I haven’t seen in many, many years now; Men and youths gathering around to play board games, and argue of trifle matters and events.

As I stopped for a while to really try to analyse the situation in my head, I still couldn’t understand why people with so much abilities could be “idling” or “killing time” so early in the day. So when I met with the person I went to meet with in the area, I asked him, why are these able bodied people wasting their lives?

To that he responded; “you haven’t seen anything yet. There are no opportunities.”

Do you or someone you know think this way? That you don’t have opportunities or resources to prosper and have a great life in our economy today?

The truth you must know is, for anyone who has the ability, there is always opportunity available. Just as the fields wait for the plough, and the sea wait for the ships and boats, so does God stand ready to corporate with you in your labours, and to reward you according to your diligence and industry.

The statement, “There are no jobs, no opportunities, or nothing for me to do with my ability” is either an expression of vanity, an excuse for negligence, or a confession of lack of mental resource, or of inability to utilize opportunity.

There are numerous opportunities to prosper today. In fact so many people have proven that a downturn in the economy presents a big opportunity for those who have the ability to think and look beyond the obvious, and who also have the capacity for work.

Do you find yourself in a situation where you are asking God why me?

Maybe you have lost your job, lost your marriage, desperately in need of cash, badly hurt from a failed relationship, your health is failing, or you seem to be going from one adversity to the other with no hope of a breakthrough.

Is that the case with you? Then it is you I am writing this message for.

You see in life adversity, setbacks, challenges, negative situations, can occur, and they do occur to everyone often without any advance warning, despite your preparation, careful planning, your faith and closeness to God.

If you are in that position, the question you will be asking is how do I come out of this situation? What do I do to get my life back on track? Can I still find love, get rich, become happy, get a job, rebuild my business, get my family back, regain my health…in spite of all what I have gone/going through?

What’s Wrong With Beginning Small?

These days it’s all about “bigness.” Everyone one talks about big dreams; big ideas; big goals. We are always told to admire and model our lives after those people who conceive great ideas and successfully bring them to reality. Every young lady dreams of marrying or dating some rich man. Every young man thinks in millions and billions.

While nothing absolutely is wrong with such thinking anyway, many of us who are so engrossed in the thinking and talking big fail to consider the small things that make great things or a great life possible. The fact is we cannot all think in millions, and we cannot all aspire to vast achievements. But this is no reason why we should despise ourselves or look down upon ourselves because our daily work and our life may not be doing great things.

Are you doing small work? Are you earning little pay compared to others you know? Friends don’t let that discourage or sadden you.  Thank God you at least have something small to do. Whatever your hands find to do however small it may seem, is important before God. The bible commands, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” “If you have a little garden, it is not un-worthy of your care and attention to make it bright with flowers for the joy of your family and your friends. If you live in a small house, you can be proud of that house if it is a perfect home in miniature.” Continue reading What’s Wrong With Beginning Small?

What are You Willing to Do In Order to Be?

As a young boy in primary school, I was always asked by teachers in the various classes I progressed into, and by other adults (relatives or family friends) what I will like to be when I grow up. Then I would give them answers of things I fancied back then based on the books I read, or the people I regarded as my heroes….(every child wants be like the adults they loved. So please be good examples to kids)

Right now as an adult, I still hear people tell me what they will like to be, or aiming at becoming; you want to become a writer, actor, actress, speaker, preacher, Entrepreneur, and so on. While we have figured out what we want to be, many of us haven’t figured out what we have to do in order to be those things we desire.

It’s very crucial to know what you must do, just as the Bible tells us in Luke 14:28-32; Continue reading What are You Willing to Do In Order to Be?
