THE POWER OF INSIGHT IN TOUGH TIMES

Tough times are test times and usually products that fail the trial test never qualify for the shelf, they simply become trash and constitute a normal loss or an abnormal loss if carelessness is attached.

Education we have often known to be powerful because it can shield losses to an extent, however insight is a higher version of education. History has recorded repeatedly that economic experts are always in confusion during economic crisis or downturns. It is majorly because economic policies are wired on assumptions and facts which are limited versions of the truth. A young man called Peter became a victim of expertism in his fishing career during tough times. Fishes suddenly became scarce and he couldn’t provide a convincing explanation even though fishing hours, timing and techniques had not change. What a mirage?

Insight means understanding the core knowledge of a subject. Insight is the intelligence of knowledge. Insight is Christian Science; Christian Science is the basic eternal quality of a divine mind. We know intelligence could mean information concerning an enemy, a possible enemy or an area. Intelligence is the ability to deal with trying situations. Insight and intelligence are dimensions of knowing. However, insight is the divine sight, the brain behind intelligence. It is superior intelligence. Insight is the supernatural demystification of Knowledge intelligence. In simple terms we can say insight is the inner sight of a site!

As an intellectual entrepreneur and Christian businessman, I must say the timeliness of effectiveness is a business virtue in tough times. When you spend no time to do the right thing you easily command loyalty from clients and customers. Timeliness and rightness are business profit agents. The knowledge of the truth is what determines the degree of impact. Every one operating in ignorance in tough times is in a perishable state. It isn’t out of place for such persons or businesses to suffer rejection or customer attrition. There are voices that profiles business positioning in tough times, the voice of customer, the voice of employee and the voice of business. Insight is divine voice that tough times cannot resist!

And it came to pass that the people pressed upon him to hear the word.. Luke 5:1

My question is; what was He saying that people were pressing to hear? In tough times the economy and environment become harsh, survival is threatened. Amazingly we know that everyone dying presses for life, have you ever seen someone drowning? He will be gasping for breath, searching for life! Am not surprised, it is the breath of God that makes a living soul. Are the times tough? Press for the voice of the word of God that has the capacity to subdue all things, all circumstances and all situations. Insight is the revelation that commands dominion.

Peter was in tough times and scarcity but he pressed for insight, he saw and became a wonder! Luke 5: 5-6! Peter was in economic turbulence and famine but he located abundance when he saw from the infallible word of God. Insight is what your spirit man sees from the word of God. It is God appearing to you with instruction on what to do, how to do and when to do what is to be done. That is insight. Insight has the power to ridicule situations of outstanding solutions.

Peter’s fishing company was in bankruptcy but he got a free bailout by doing what the word says. That is acting on insight. Achievements in tough times are a function of insightful actions. Economy and Environmental factors have broken down peter’s business philosophies but Peter experienced a breakthrough by insight. He came to an understanding that it was impossible for any individual, profession or businessman to make an impact and difference in tough times without insight! I Cor 4:7.

He came to know and accepted the truth that insight is of universal applicability. His total school of fishing is only a subset of insightful fishing. All forms of education and intelligence, training, science and discoveries are only a smaller version of Insight. Joy in tough times resonates from insight. Crying has never saved any in tough times, complains don’t heal economic crisis, worries are not sedatives or palliatives in famine, the all purpose drug in tough times is INSIGHT from the word of God.

Wouldn’t you rather become a word addict and an insightful overcomer in tough times? Psalms 119:130! Psalms 89:34! The word contains the answers to the questions of tomorrow! why let temporal tough times put you in plasmolysis when there is insight in the permanent word of God! 

Until you know the word you cant smile in tough times! John 3:3!

MARITAL BALANCE IN TOUGH TIMES..

Tough times comes with a lot of pressure of the family and this require a proper balance. More than ever in tough times marriages undergo shaking because survival and well being is sometimes questioned.
There is a necessary need for the captain of the marital ship to shift the set of the sail with confidence and provide good tutelage about a change for more. Love is to be better understood in tough times.
Wisdom and knowledge bring stability while understanding births establishment. Men must possess the capacity to see possibilities and commence corporate action towards the new possibility. Women must become wiser in tough times to build and hold the home.
There is so much premarital counseling but little post marital counseling. In tough times families need greater understanding than before. this can only happen with continuous post marital counseling. When last did you read a book or an article on marriage since you got married. There is no expert in marriage no matter the age of marriage. until there is increasing wisdom, knowledge and understanding, marriage will suffer harmful shaking in tough times. Your stability and approval in in what you study. it is out of the treasure of your heart, abundance will flow. Isaiah 33:6, Luke 6:45!
Satan will arrange a barrage of suggestions that may look attractive in tough times, it is the solidity of the foundation built in the marriage that holds a fence and dispels such suggestions. Many ignorant spouses make satanic deceptive suggestions a decision and truncate their marital bliss.
The concepts that you live your life by can either imprison you or liberate you in tough times. if you have been beating your wife before tough times then you may kill her in tough times. if you have been keeping some secrets before tough times then we can expect betrayal in tough times. If you have been foolish before tough times then willing irresponsibility would happen in tough times. Marriage and family is seed that needs constant watering of the word of God and prayer because the times are evil! Proverbs 4:20-27!
A wise man wrote ” Men never lie on their deathbeds and wish they could have spent more time in the office. They always long to go back and spend more time with their family (wife and children). if you prioritize God’s priority, God can give you greater favor at work, bless you in ways your job never could and stretch out the income you do bring in”.
Like i have discovered, there will be no marriage in heaven but what happened in your marriage can deny you eternity with God.
May God’s wisdom, the knowledge of the truth and the understanding of love keep our marriages and eternity.
Stay informed on your marriage. Tough times may last but tough minds outlast tough times.

BUSINESS MINDSET IN TOUGH TIMES..

You can’t run to the bank without financial literacy and have a great day. Banks hold idle funds to trade with the active minds of the market, government and industry for a profit. It takes wisdom not to die before you live! Tough times don’t last, tough people do!

Cash is a liability in the bank’s balance sheet; therefore the only reasonable action of the bank is to give the cash out to those whose minds are assets that can create profit for themselves and the bank. Your knowledge of assets, investment, liability, income and expenses are the ticket to discussing with the bank not your degree. Your report card is your financial statement which a picture of your financial literacy. A management expert and billionaire once said “give everyone here N1m each, over a little time, all the money will return back to my pocket”. Lesson is “you can’t keep what you cannot create! True business is divine creativity and market understanding enabled!

The bank is not a place of refuge as many think, bank is not run by machines but human who feel same thing you feel. The bank is to serve you and not you letting the bank put you in servitude. I have no issues with banking but misunderstandings of banking that imprison many. Banks are in business and not charity! Banks only discuss with systems that understand financial trend and market systems. Some people maintain a mindset that it is impossible to do business without loan. What a failed mentality! Luke 9:1-3! Such persons need a powerful mental reset!

There was no bank when God created all that we enjoy, Business should not start with a loan. There is more responsibility in building your fortune from your limited resources than the being pushed by the pressure of default and Loan repayment. Business opportunity must be thoroughly analyzed and uncovered for futuristic realities before diving in. Business should be divinely sought even though you must be mentally equipped through research and observation. Like i have maintained over time “Business is a catalog of questions rightly answered”. Business is an answer to a market quest and human expectation. Are you in the production of what is needed in the quantity needed where they are needed with the specifications that cure the dilemma of the market and at optimum price? Productive and relentless people profit in hard times and create a new future for themselves.

Wisdom is superior to money in business. Wisdom is management sufficiency. Ecclesiastes 7:12 in NIV says “Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it”. This means money alone can waste your living but wisdom preserves you to make, manage and multiply money.

Before you think of a loan, think about your certainty and reliability of your cash flow, think of the inflation rate, think about the capacity of your return on investment covering your interest charge and inflation rate which decrease the value of your cash flow and increase the pressure of value of what you owe. Don’t let your limited understanding of banking, business and money hand over your future to the bank to paddle. They will gladly deal and take unfair advantage at your financial ignorance. Your wits, business acumen with sensitivity accuracy is a comfortable stance to trade with the bank. Banks are to be man’s servant because man determines its deposit and existence and not man under the servitude of the bank through ignorance. Face fact with the truth!

Wealth is a mentality. You must change your thinking to upgrade your change in the business and your future. The future of your business is determined by your mentality. Your mentality determines your captivity or triumph. That is a future state! Don’t just think of money in business, think of your future and that of the business.  We need a critical shift in our mindset for business triumph in tough times! 

Your mindset is your life and business set!

THE TENANCY AGREEMENT

Many bother about a room on earth and forsake their mansion in heaven. Do you have the tenancy agreement that permits your shelter after this life?

Shelter is one of the basic necessities of man and therefore everyman strives to have a roof over his or her head. This necessary quest led to the introduction of the tenancy agreement which specified the terms of tenancy between the landlord and the tenant by mutually agreed understanding.

Observably, because of many troubles and comfort of convenience almost all men seek to build a house of their own. Some tenancy harsh living realities have made many to make serious efforts to build their own houses for the sake of liberty and conditionality. The fortunes from shelter have also driven many into the estate business but then building a house is a function of many possibilities. The necessity of shelter has created even jobs for many as estate agents and care takers, these also comes with various experiences But then Except the LORD builds the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain.

The truth is that it takes God to build; it takes compliance to divine instruction to enable ability to build. History and cases have shown that many people desired to build but never did just like David (I kings 8:17-20), Many people also started building and never completed it (Gen 11: 4,8,9) and many people also built houses and never lived in them (Duet 28:30). Some people even build houses full of the ornaments of living but also accompanied with so much troubles and sorrows. Example those who build from extortions and diversions, buildings sourced from the pains of others are normally inhabited with troubles and sorrows. This will not be our portion in Jesus name. King Solomon the wise said in Proverbs 17:1 Better [is] a dry morsel and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices [with] strife. It is only the blessings of the Lord that maketh rich and adds no sorrow.

Amazingly, God can build you a house. The Midwives of Egypt refused to heed the evil policy of murder from Pharaoh and God made them houses. Exodus 1:15-21! This means there are instructions that you take from men that can make you a tenant on earth and an eternal vagabond. You can own a house with the fear of the Lord or when your ways please the Lord.

God can also provide for you sufficiently to build a house and live in it happily. Deut 8:18, Deut 28:8,12!

God can also hand over a house fully built and gloriously furnished to you free of charge. You don’t have to build a house to own a house. The sufficiency of God can dash you a house. He is Elshadai, the God that is more than enough! God is bigger than human calculations or imagination. I pray this will be our portion in Jesus name. Just please him! Deut 6:10-12! Furthermore, if God is able to build mansions in heaven, he can also build houses here on earth. Trust Him!

However, building a house here on earth is not enough, being a landlord or estate Mogul here on earth is not the whole matter. Will you have a room in heaven? There are many landlords and estate owners here on earth that wouldn’t have a room in heaven and there are many people who wouldn’t even have a place to keep their head on earth but will live in mansions in heaven. Pastor E. A Adeboye once bluntly said If you build many houses in this world and die a sinner you will go to hell.

God is the landlord of landlords, He built the heaven and the earth and he has documented his tenancy agreement in his word saying only through faith in Jesus will you qualify for a mansion in heaven. John 14:1-3 displays the tenancy agreement.

Let not your heart be troubled: YE BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME. In my Father’s house (Mattew 6:9) are many mansions: if [it were] not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

Why live in a mansion here and have no place in eternity? Why build estates all over the world and forget to build your life a shelter with God? Think about it.

I pray that our ways will please God enough to build us a house here on earth and qualify us for a mansion in heaven.

Do you want to have a shelter for your life after this life? Then come to Jesus, follow him and keep following Him, he will reserve a place of eternal shelter for you. Luke 18:26-30!

No matter what you have, without Jesus you have nothing! There is tenancy after this world. Will you have a room for shelter in eternal estate of Heaven? Decide today and Now! Mattew 6:33!
