THERE IS MORE AHEAD…

“forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, i press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14

No matter what you circumstance was yesterday, it is history! today is a new day that you are meant to have a fresh start. Those who spend today mourning yesterday never live to enjoy tomorrow. Weeping may have endured for the night but this is the morning of your joy, don’t ruin it in depression and thanklessness. The poverty of hopelessness is that it ruins the potency of the future. you are richer than you were poor yesterday if only you will acknowledge and expect the good of today. The future is wealthier than the past why trade today for the poor yesterday. The afflictions of yesterday could be great but God’s mercy of today is opening doors of triumph for you! There is good news today, when i wake up , i fashion my mind for what good God is about to do this new day because God is good and His mercies kept me alive for the good of today, it has then become unreasonable to impoverish today and drain it of its potency to make my life precious. Grace is not a christian exclusive, it is fund of sure safety for all men alive.

Today is like the sun, walk towards it hope and the shadows of yesterdays grief would be cast behind you permanently.  Seek God, He add in the proportion to which we seek Him. Without renewal there would never be an improvement!

BE anxious for nothing but in thankfulness and prayer make your desired request known unto God. Miracles happen after prayers, Jesus walked on water after prayers. Matt 14:22-28!He contributed nothing to the bad news of yesterday but faced the future with prayers and thankfulness. Joy is the fountain of wellness, grieve breaks the bones and wears out the Spirit (which is the real you). Depression suppresses energy for progression.


Amazingly i discovered Scarcity does not exit, Scarcity is only a veil of ignorance, scarcity does not really exit. It may be somewhat difficult for you to agree with me but I show you the truth now. Have you noticed that no matter how bad your condition or financial situation is, there is always a five loaves and two fish around we just always says what can these do? Around you, if you can scan your environment, inherent ability and your house well there is always a cruise of oil that does not fail but we often trivialize its capacity because we don’t know God kept is around to round off our poverty. We often lack the multiplicative capacity to expand the cruise of oil by right and wise investment or exchange. There is always the trinity of inherent ability, skilled acquired by training and supernatural gift that suffocates stagnation!


Martin Luther King Jnr once said “we must accept finite disappointment but we must never lose infinite hope

Depression releases the reality of recession but joy incubates the focused thinking of surpassing abundance. Paul said i have dumped my degrees and skills for the surpassing call on my maker. Dumping doesn’t mean deactivation but rather activating in alignment with God’s will. you are created as a rescue, your craft which is your specific and peculiar skill is your wealth zone beyond recession. That is your cruise of oil and your five loaves plus two fish, if you belittle it you will always resign to the grief of yesterday. strife to improve on what you have been doing, find out why your efforts haven’t yielded the much you expect, take a walk of solitude to ventilate your mind for the new approach to crucify your dilemma.

The truth remains we all have homogeneous issues but our approaches are heterogeneous. That is the wonder of ingenuity. discouragement and complains will lock down your ingenuity. stop spending time with the media news, why get worked up listening to the media woes, settle with the good news that where the script of relevant abundance is discovered and published.  Government don’t resolve recession, recession is a wind (no one can really tell its origin) that sinks those who focus on it but surpassing abundance is with the superior wind which you are according to John 3:8!  no one can tell your future but the book of life in this life and the life to come. if our actions are documented in books, what do you think your action should be today. stay discouraged and downcast? NO! There is more ahead, dig and search it out in the master script. Luke 4:18. Psalms 40:7!

There is more ahead of you, don’t die with yesterday today! The failure of yesterday is gone, get over the friendly enemy of yesterday, get over the betrayal of yesterday, cancel the disappointment of yesterday, start afresh today with all of its abundance and secure your surpassing wealthy posterity.

Business is going to be great today, Promotion is coming today, health is restored today, your husband is coming back today, your baby is arriving today, the test for the long awaited pregnancy is coming positive today. Good things will happen for you today, let yesterday reports die and position to live in the joy of today and well-being of tomorrow.

It became good news that Mary did not have an abortion, don’t abort your hope, you must carry the word of promise until the promise carries out of that condition. your mirror doesn’t give you a full script of you, it explained only your physical but your spirit man can only be pictured in the word. Adjusting the physical body and the intellectual mind cant clean the mess of life up but the renewing the mind and building the Spirit with the word adjust life dramatically.  Your degree, certificate, bank account, physical beauty would not face God in the final analysis, it is your Spirit that will! The word of God is more sure word of prophesy with incorruptibility. Take the pill of the word of God today , accept it and believe it , it will cure all of yesterday’s griefs and any other forever!

THE CHEAPEST PATH TO PERMANENT LOSSES..

Gambling is one of the cheapest way to permanent losses.

It sediments an addiction that encrypt penury and financial disaster! Business negotiation is so crucial that one bad deal  is good enough to shut down your entire business empire or declare your financial and business ruin! A bad negotiation makes you loose beyond money! Gambling is a bad destiny negotiation. Only Jesus can absolutely set a gambler free! 

 

Choice is an endorsement with consequences and a contract with penalty or applause! Deception is not a business strategy no matter the advocates! 
Gambling has become the latest toxic virus in our neighborhood.. What a loss of productivity! Many only earn enough for the next bet! Phones suggest it at will irrespective of sim owners’ permit. it is online to ease and sophisticate patronage. subtlety is such an organized crime that even education is messed up by it.
Lotto machines are like ATM channels, mobile and installed in streets and homes. They open earlier than true businesses!
In the Movie “WAR ROOM” it was express that a comfortable home is not a measure of happiness. it exposed fraud as foolishness and clearly demonstrates that no matter what you have lost it can be restored when you let in Jesus the true way to living healthy and wealthy!
Gambling is a Deception run with business philosophy especially with legal consent. how ignorant we legally permit multiplication of penury. Man is sacrificed by his choices. your choice either secures or severe your life and destiny!
Living without the fear of God is the greatest gamble of life! Once your thoughts, actions and disposition runs contrary to the commandment you lack the fear of God.

THE GIFT OF NAAMAN

10 Years ago as a young banker i had an offer to clear a fraudulent cheque valued at #4.2b with a bonus of #100-110m but i declined working with a principle that “whatever i think i cannot make is what i steal ” . That was the gift of Naaman and the appetite of Gehazi!  The person who took the offer was arrested a month after his juicy wedding, lost his job and shattered his early marriage with a frustrated pregnant wife.  Proverbs 15:27a says “He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house”

Every Good gift and every perfect gift cometh from God the father of all lights with whom there is no variableness neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

Good gift and Perfect gift comes from God not Naaman! it is the perfection of heart that help identify rightness of the gift of Naaman. Not all gifts are meant to be received. our stand with God is what scans the gifts as God instructs us. Am very sure there was a need in the house of the prophet but it wasnt the time and type of Gift that would meet His needs. Only discipline can make a man to reject the gift of Naaman.

A careful observation would let you know that Naaman brought his gift with pride. 2 kings 5:11! Bribe comes with pride and pride comes before destruction. many gifts are entrapment because the gift of a man makes a way for Him. Gehazi didnt appreciate the clothing he had on that reflected the glory of God so he opted for the suit of leprosy. Many subordinates never wonder why there contented boss rejected the gift of Naaman. Many people have received gifts that slaughtered them. ignorance and lack of faith in God always bedevils many. faith and patience are requirements for good and perfect gifts. Your need doe not determine your gift, it is the favor of God that is sponsored by the fear of the Lord that organizes your gift , such gifts lift you and not plant sorrow in your life and future.

Satan also packages gifts that will deflate the life and ministry of many today, satanic gift are everywhere today especially with the scarcity mentality that ignorance portrays all around us. proverbs 9:16-18!

Who is Naaman? The political merchants, the business magnates and the many around with lousy wealthy that create a scene when they come, they blare the siren, they command convoys, they come with presidential notes and letters. The so called celebrities and societal respected offices and Dirty chiefs that expect respect that they can’t earn etc. They let everyone know their presence and they display their posts, staff of offices. Naamans will always see that there is a miracle before they bring gift. 2 kings 5:15!  They make their gift look like they are doing you a favor when they actually need what they don’t have but are in you. Any man who can’t value His worth will always fall for the gift of Naaman.

Faith is a must if you must receive a gift from the good God. He that will come to God must believe that He is the rewarded of them that diligently seek him. Naaman waited until his leprosy was cleansed before He believed that there is God in Israel. That is not the divine order. Faith is a prerequisite for perfect gifts.

 


Gehazi couldn’t control his appetite for the gift of Naaman! Through many studies and observation i have discovered that whatsoever has no boundary is a bondage! Even the garden of Eden had controls and boundaries! 


Today, in many offices, businesses and ministries the gift of Naaman has paralyzed efficiency and effectiveness of their operations. Many positions have been used as compensations and exchange strategies because of the gift of Naaman, special services that ought to be for the salvation of souls, spiritual edification for the needy, sick, challenged are now organized for Naamans. Hands that are to be laid on young Elisha’s are now laid because of the gift of Naaman. The church even observes Pareto to attend to humanity but Jesus didn’t even despise children that had nothing to give.

Many professionals and educated people cannot value the worth of their learning so they fall prey to filthy gifts of Naaman that put leprosy on their years of education and expertise. Can’t you see the ridicule in our nation today? Well educated people in the net of messy bribery and corruption. They couldn’t kill the gehazi inside them, so they run after the gift of Naaman. Adultery and fornication is also the gift of Naaman that will run destiny down and leave your life with a low or no battery to energize the pursuit of your vision.

Many leaders, ministers, professional and even pastors facilitate the gift of Naaman by displaying desperation either stylishly or frankly. That is why a low esteemed pastor who doesn’t know that his lift is in gift that comes from God not Naaman will make demands or send sms or specially greet or accord attention to selected Naamans in his congregation and many times it devalues their anointing and their leadership. They suddenly become dry wells that can’t quench the thirst of the people again just like Gehazi they fade away shamefully. Elisha knew his anointing was not a result of manipulation. It was a processed in the furnace of a right walk with God.

The Jesus in you is worth countless times what any man in this passing world can dare to offer you! Sterilize your offers and reject the gift of Naaman for your true prosperity and posterity. What inheritance do you want to leave for your generation? Honor or leprosy! Elisha is remembers as a generational hero but Gehazi is remembered a caution and curse because of the gift of Naaman.

Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? can one go upon hot coals and his feet not be burned?

Beware of the gift of Naaman. John 12:26!

Think about your end irrespective of what you do or the position you occupy! Selah!
