In the world to come I shall not be asked, “Why were you not Moses?”
I shall be asked, “Why were you not Zusya?”
Rabbi & Teacher (1718-1800)
I personally do not think lessons and experiences are given to us just so we can repeat them. It’s understandable when they equip us to lead a better life, causing us to start from where those ahead of us stopped. Yes, Joseph the Prime Minister was great, we agree the life of King David the Psalmist was and is still applaudable, It’s glaring the likes of Famous Media Moguls, Country Presidents, Founders, Activists, Prophets, Preachers, Missionaries, Scientists, Sports Champions and other stars amongst us in their respective fields are engaging us in an inspirational ride. However, I do not think the purpose is to replay their success all over again, life may appear unadventurous that way. If you ask me, I’d say it’s about time we took the declaration of Isaiah 43:19 more seriously, We are not here to replicate another. The agenda of The Father is a progressive one, with new scenes and greater glories. Proverbs 4:18 puts it well for us by saying our paths should glow more brightly. Brothers and Sisters, it’s the longer we live, the brighter we shine.
Some obvious hindrances we encounter in expressing the New we carry is the fear of rejection, the probability of acceptance, the perceptions of others and the contemplation of having our message misunderstood. When such weakening thoughts pitch themselves to you, it will help to reflect on the things we do as at today; the pioneers of our food, designers of our clothing and every other basic things of life we enjoy, even to the point of our school of thoughts. None of them existed in our planet, someone sometime brought them into being, human beings like you and I. As fellow creations of a progressive God, we are obligated to birth many more paths for our time and for the time of those to come. We have been BLESSSED with the platform created by those before us and to whom much is given, much more is expected. You have the responsibility to take the light in You and give us the NEW you’ve got.
Remember, because it never existed doesn’t mean it shouldn’t exist.
You’ve got the NEW that was promised us, Please share it.
Love & Gratitude.
