If you have the faith that you will be successful, and without making efforts on actualizing that faith, will your faith come to play? We all want Abraham’s blessing but none of us is willing to go through the process Abraham went, in order to attract that blessing. Get this, dear friend; those that pay (i.e. the price) always get their goods (i.e. the rewards) God is not interests in your idleness, He’s interested in what you can do. God promised the Israelites the land of Canaan for FREE but am still amazed, why they had to fight for it? Nothing good comes freely; there are no such things as something for nothing. True diamonds and golds are not found on the surface of the earth, they are found beneath, which means you must dig to have one.
The way a farmer gets blessed and fills his barn by sowing, harvesting cultivating seeds, is the same way you’ll get God’s blessing and become wealthy/prosperous by putting into use that which God has given to you – it might be your talent, an idea, that business you are delaying to start, a call, a contact, an old friend, even a reconciliation with an enemy-who knows God’s blessings can come from anywhere. Blessings are not received, but attracted. We are living magnets “as magnet attracts iron-fillings, so does a man attract to himself what he desires based on his values’’.
According to one anthropologist “Man is in some aspects like other men,in some respects like some other man and in certain aspects like no other man” in his music Tuface idebia says “we are all gifted and unique” that aspect of you that is like no other man is what God is interests in blessing if you actually put it to play. It is okay. If your job is blessing you (small-small) but does you pay package truly define how much you are worth? What if you loose that dream-job today? What will you hold on to, on the interim? Dear reader, you have to discover what you have to offer, you have to discover your potentials: once you locate it and start building on it, you’ll become something great. “A man that has what to uniquely offer to the world will make the world come to his feet…. Seriously begging” what service do you have to offer which will attract God’s blessing? God will only bless the work of your hands and not your hands he’s not interested in laziness. That’s why he causes lazy people to loose what they have to those who can multiply them. Will you be willing to loose anything?
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO OFFER?
The world stands aside and throws applause to the man who has something to offer. Abraham the patriarch offered faithfulness, and that stimulated God to bless him and male him the father of many nations. Also, King Solomon offered a thousand sheep as sacrifice unto God which caused God not on only bless him with wisdom but he was prospered with so much wealth and riches that it was said that “There’s none as rich as King Solomon and none will ever be richer than him.
Every profile has what it is known for, Pete Edochie is known for acting, Tiger Woods for golfing, Ali Baba for making people laugh what are you known for?
“A man’s talent maketh ways for him” do not hesitate with that, which if you develop and put to use will make ways for you and cause you to sit before Kings and Queens. Search the shelves of your mind, I’m sure there’s an abandoned talent in there; pick it up, dust it properly and put it to use. Only then will you understand that where there’s a will, theirs is a way. There’s on better investment, than in one’s own ability (talent). The worst calamity that can befall a man is for him not to know where he is from, where he’s going to, and who he is. What you don’t know you have, you can’t use. Lack of this knowledge he has made the attainment of success an illusion to many; Believe me, if to be successful was easy everybody would have been. Only few people are successful because they believed in what they can do. Consequently, they took the discipline of practicing until they became perfect at what they are doing. You must put yourself under serious mental discipline “lack of time is lack of discipline” Be the best and give out only the best at what you have to offer. The force of gravity exacts power on substance that flies below a certain level in space but has no effect on rockets. You know why? Because rockets suddenly bust out into outer space before the force of gravity tales cognizance, thus exceeding the level of the gravity’s power.
Don’t be at the level of aircrafts. Become a rocket. Burst open into your world of possibilities, fly above that level and gravity (pains, frustrations, disappointments, etc), will have no power on you. In fact there’s a force that your will burst out with, even witches and wizards will have no choice but to give you support. Stagnation holds no fascination for the man on track: because he is focused therefore he cannot fail. Be focused on your focus (what you have to offer) sooner or later the world will be focused on you.
SINGLE OUR FROM THE CROWD.
Too many of us never get to our destinations because we take pleasure in following other people. “A man that follows someone else’s footstep never leaves his footprint” Chinese proverb.
Remember, before a seed grows, it must first die to its old nature. You’ll remain the way you are except you break loose from that crowd. Your crowd is anything that has not allowed you to discover your original identity. Please don’t die a carbon copy or an imitator. “My mission is to die empty and original; I am taking nothing to the grave” Peter Lawson. Your life mist not be defined in the context of another man’s definition, just be your real self. Distinguish yourself from others. “If you don’t get distinguished, you’ll be extinguished”
One quality of the blessings of God that I know is that: EYES HAVE NOT SEEN. When you set yourself aside and actually use what you have. The kind of blessings that will come your way will be unimaginable. Untold of and unseen. Successful people know this. That’s why they do what no one else has ever done (they don’t wait to be told) you too can, why not try out something, today?
THE MICHAEL DELL’S STORY
At a time, when Dell’s peers were drinking, and playing footballs. He started a business that will lead him to fame and fortune two years later. he had come across a product. The personal computer. Which changed his entire life? The young dell started buying computer parts assembling them and selling them to his classmates, he made a poor pass at college but dropped our of the university of Texas to officially launch his company: Dell computers. Then he was just a 16-year old kid.
Twenty one years later, the 37 years old dell remains CEO of his own firm which posted sales of $31 billion in 2002 and employs more than 36, 000 people. In the second quarter of 2002, Dell computers worldwide shipments grew by 18% while the rest shrank by 4%. With a personal fortune of over $17.12 billion, he was one of the richest Americans under 40, according to fortune magazine.
Michael dell’s decisions to offer something to the world made him use what he knows best, which attracted God’s blessing. Today the world is offering hem ass sorts of things in order to get his offer and he has been rewarded with the title of “ONE OF THE RICHEST MEN IN THE WORLD” Tell me, is this not God’s blessing?
MY LAST WORDS
God’s blessings neither are nor received them are attracted. Every matter you see on the face of planet earth is already blessing but the blessings manifest when the matter is being put to use. Find a need in people and think of what you want in life, think of what to offer in order to fill that need or get what you want. If you fan give what people want, I bet you, they will beat a part to your door, even if you’re live in the thickest of forest, never stop at what you cannot do, there’s no joy doing merely what any man can do.
Please let’s have a meeting at the top. You shall succeed.
