PUSHING TO THE FRONT PART2
I like to quickly wrap it up on pushing to the front. Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Friends, it is vital to note that the first part of success is “Get-to-it-iveness”; the second part of success is “Stick-to-it-iveness”.
I believe you’ve observed how many africans are religious but not spiritual. Religion is a significant part of Africans, but unfortunately, average Africans really don’t know how God works.
Most Africans (blindly) believe that God can make them rich if they will pray enough. This is heresy and unbiblical. I love the way, a servant of God puts it, “God doesn’t give us money. He gives us business ideas and strength to work it out.”
God rarely give anybody money directly and praying for money is as good as praying for maize to fall from heaven for you to eat. Yes, God is the one who gives us maize to eat, but we are the ones to plant it. Though we may pray that it rains at the appropriate time, we have the responsibility to go into the bush, prepare the farmland and plant.
It’s time to operationalise Joseph. We must interpret this bad dream of pharaoh ( economic downturn resulting from the global pandemic) …from that seemingly bad dream came an opportunity to get Joseph into policy advocacy and placement in the political process…
From a nightmare Joseph saw what God was about to do… And that set the tone for a new socio-economic narrative that repositioned Egypt as a global power. It takes you knowing the next move of God to adequately position yourself as an agent of transformation and blessings.
The whole world had to visit Egypt to survive.
Joseph fed into the consciousness of Egypt the influence of the Spirit that blessed all the families of the earth. The HolySpirit inside of you is not just to speak in tongues but most importantly to know the right thing to do and how to do it promptly.
Opportunity becomes invisible to those who are not expecting it, or looking somewhere else for it. Mind you, laziness most times appear as a mosquito net where you can sleep under but turns out to be iron chains that stagnate a man. Friends, start from where and what you have now.
