THE LAW OF LIFE : Life is precious but not without the Law!

There is therefore NOW no condemnation to them that are in Christ! There is a better testimony for you if you hang on the law of life! Romans 8:1-11!

Years Ago I Was Trapped With History and almost lost Destiny, i looked around and began to judge my life (looking at circumstances rather than the covenant) with the things that happened in the past, happening and my father’s life who was late. I was drenched and blinded to my potentials and destiny but upon counseling with My Pastor (Pastor Emma Omede), He Rebuked Me Vehemently that i should stop that permanently, that my life is totally different. It helped me a great deal.

“Constant Development is the law of life and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself to a false position” Mahatma Gandhi Said.

I have learnt that Fruits Are Improvements from Roots. History is what you left behind but destiny is the destination you are headed. With Jesus you are headed right on destiny! Never let anything in history trap the reality of your destiny. History Is Different from Covenant, You Can Build destiny on The Covenant but Not History. The covenant is God’s deal with Man, Men can mess a deal but never will God!

When We Ignore The Laws Of Life, We Lend Our Life To The Laws Of Death. When We Forget The Law Of God, We Lend Our Life To The Rule Of The Devil. When You Ignore The Covenant Of God, We Lend Our Life To The Curse Of Satan.

The Past And The Future Are Two Extremes Like Life And Death. Jesus Is Our Future; Satan Is In Our Past Because Satan Has No Future. Watch Satan Always Remind And Torment Us Our Past But Jesus, The Word Of God And His Covenant Edify Us With Our Glorious Future. Paul Said This One Thing I Do, Forgetting The Things That Are Behind. Phil 3:13. Anyone Who Concentrate On The Past Will Lose The Future. The Pharisees And Sadducee Kept Seeing Jesus In The Past As The Boy Asking Questions The Other Day And The Carpenters Son, They Lost Out. (Read my post on THE PARASITE OF TRADITION). Paul Understood better Even When Everyone Kept seeing Him As Saul the persecuting ruffian , He Established The Law Of Life, If A Man Be In Christ, He Is A New Creation, Old Things Are Past, All Is New! 2 Cor 5:17. He kept the new person, vision and reached destiny.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

I have Learnt From Experience, That You Were There For Somebody is Not a guaranty That They would Be There For You, God Has Made Provisions For New People That Would Be There For You In The Future. Don’t be disappointed you can’t find those you were there for, look unto God! God is Alfa and Omega, Before Things Began He Already Finished. This is why “Better is The End of a Matter than the Beginning Thereof”. You Have A Glorious Destiny, Just Hang On The Law Of Life and Keep Following Jesus, The Author And Finisher Of Our Faith.

“Don’t rent your destiny to History, Redefine your Life with constant Improvement” – Julius Afolabi

Your Old Class Mate May Ignore You, Never mind, Those Who Recognized You In The Past May Not Be Part Of Those Who Will Recognize You In The Future. God has been doing, is still doing and will keep doing beyond the Imagination Of Man. (Ephesians 3:20, Hebrews 13:8). Just hang on the Law of Life! Jesus is that Law of Life.

Never Let People or You define you By your history, Be Defined By The Covenant You Live by And The Laws That Guide Your Living.

God loves you and it is not going To Change If You will Embrace The Law of Life! Jesus is that law that keeps you ever relevant and significant!

EVERY PRISON HAS A DOOR!

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John14:6
 
Uncle Nebuchadnezzar is an interesting character for September! Daniel 4!
 
Until he submitted and acknowledged Jesus, he could not leave his prison. Prison is a restriction, limitation and stagnation. Prison stores the life and well-being of a person or his property. Prison is stolen peace.
 
No one loves the prison but sometimes life turns us in for a purpose! every prison bows to the authority of access to freedom. John 8:32,36! God’s ways to saving and reaching us is infinite. Isaiah 55:8-11.
 
Nobody could explain the predicament of Uncle Nebuchadnezzar except Daniel as revealed, His entire cabinet and family wondered without any capacity to help, it was tough to believe a king had turned a Human- Animal. Don’t let God humble you! (There are many situations in life that men can’t explain neither can they help, That is a prison). Everyone watched #Nebuchadezzar crawl out of sight. Like i always say “Every greatness has a moment of silence”. in that silence, heaven sounds loudest!
 
(Sometimes there are matters that makes us seem less than human, because we fell pray to evil suggestions or we were careless and ignorant and insensitive.) Nothing punishes like arrogant ignorance, Don’t let pride tell you what will happen to you when you buy it! Humility is in the heart!
 
This occurrence left the entire cabinet and people confused that no one could occupy his throne for seven years of external imprisonment ( Whatever God gives, He keep| Your place no one can take). He was locked up in the forest or wilderness to unravel his execution error. (Many times, the Prison is a painful solitude where God meets us).
 
Similarly, one sunny afternoon, Uncle Nebuchadnezzar walked normal back into town straight to the palace, took his bath, dressed up and walked majestically to His throne, no one asked questions or explanations neither did anyone refute his orders. All happened like a mirage with so much lessons. Psalms 126:1-3!
 
One vital lesson is of essence in this story; We own nothing, we are simply privileged stewards and our heart status controls our destiny! Any position can be vacant and anybody can be vacated except God!
 
Uncle Nebuchadnezzar’s concern was a personal transaction with God. When he settled with God, everyone saw his settlement. (Don’t judge any man, you never know when they settle with God. God is the only righteous judge. Jesus is still man’s High Priest and Bishop of our soul and mediator, its time to replace condemnation with reconciliation and correction)
 
Jesus is the true way out of every prison in life. Jesus is the word instruction out of bondage. Jesus is the light that shines in the darkness of prison. There is nothing the enemy has stolen that Jesus doesn’t know where it is hidden and have absolute access to. Are you in prison? Let Jesus in and you will come out! John3:18!
 
Stay humble and ever repentant, God rules in the affairs of men. The more we reverence God, the better secure is our place in life and destiny. God loves you and is ever willing to safe and deliver if we will call on Him. Rev 3:20, Romans 10:13, John 14:13. John 3:16!
 
This SEPTEMBER, GOD will RESTORE YOU in a FASHION IN-EXPLAINABLE yet UNDENIABLE. The same many WONDERED why it hasn’t happened is the same way they will WONDER HOW IT HAPPENED. THOSE WHO PITIED YOU will ENVY YOU! ABOVE ALL, ALL THAT BELONGS TO YOU NO MAN WILL TAKE. JESUS THE WAY MAKER WILL MAKE THE WAY FOR YOU AND ME in JESUS NAME.

NEVER HURT FOR FUN

No matter the area of life or endeavor you find yourself, it is safe to mind the way you treat others, the repercussions of intentionally hurting others for fun is grave! many people have planted ignominy and thick cloud of struggle over the years ahead of them. Don’t let your mindless actions empty your future. The future is delicate! Some years back, a teenager profoundly defined fun and pleasure as things and activities that get you off normal for a while. There is one thing I have discovered life keeps a file! In the habitat of fun, many have incurred long term struggles over their life. Many years after men would have forgotten their deeds, time keeps the record and maturity of hurt brings them to bear!

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. James 3:5-6.

Years ago I saw a movie where a woman who had three children as they walked along the road, a reckless drunk driver ran through them and murdered the three children and sped off. The woman out of the agony of pains with almost nothing to live for and the sour memories of the tragic death of her children spoke ill words “may the one who caused her this pain never find help”. The reckless drunk thought it was fun but for over 20,30 years he labored in vain, his life was full of pains, struggle and emptiness. help was far from him and his family. He had forgotten where he wronged and it was no longer fun for him again. Are you carelessly hurting someone? Have you hurt someone intentionally and laughing it over? Are you putting someone through pains? Think again and rush back for forgiveness and mercy now! Hmmm.. When we forget ourselves, we do things that are remembered.

But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:8.

Words are powerful; a pronouncement from an afflicted heart will be honored. The tongue is such a lethal instrument, it curses and blesses. The wish of the afflicted will be granted without hesitation especially when the hurt was an intentional wicked act or hurt for fun. It is wickedness to delight in hurting people for fun. Some friends will stab the other so badly that the other party in the midst of the cry of pain will make painful pronouncements. They may be few words but can damage the entire life of the callous offender. A very bitter person may barely say, as you have made life tough for me, may life be tough for you or may you not find a helper!may you not attract battles of pains to yourself in Jesus name!

Some people just derive fun from hurting people. They just laugh carelessly over the pains of others but a careful sorrow of grief awaits them also. What a culture of cruelty! God said owe no man anything except love. Anything outside love for and to a fellow man is share wickedness. only a wicked soul laughs at others calamity or rejoices at the fall of others! Woe unto him by who offense come. There are people you think can’t do anything to you because you may be more than them in everything(probably richer and more influential than they are for now) but may they not use their tongue against you. i admonish you Never undervalue anyone or say you can’t do anything especially when you are oppressing such a person!  it maybe your spouse or friend, colleague , family member or even brethren. The same way a heartfelt prayer gets answers so also painful negative pronouncement launches sorrow into the life and generation of the wicked.

Listen well, you may take your wicked act for fun but you will be under the tribute and curse of your action. Actions are investment. These days, some young men just go about getting ladies pregnant for fun and abandon or deny them, they raise the child in struggles and some may never be fortunate to settle for another family again, hence they live in pains and hurt. Some of these people out of pains may sometimes just make terrible pronouncement and that pronouncement will form a canopy over the offender. There is nothing that the offender will do in his life that will see the light of the day, it will be struggle upon struggle. Life will be acidic and corrosive to such.  Dignity starts with the man! Stop enjoying irresponsibility!

The message is that when we refuse to take responsibility, when we are callous and careless, we attract battles of struggles in life!

Don’t hurt for fun, it is disastrous. stay truly amiable!

what do you say?

THERE IS A PAUL IN SAUL

Every Saul lives in a compound, works in an office, teaches in a school, leads a team, does a business in the marketplace, works in an office and walks pass an Ananias every passing minute and day. There is a Paul That lies in them!
 
That armed robber in your neighborhood, That drunkard, that smoker, that assassin you know, That political embezzler, That gambler in your compound, that thief in your office only needs Jesus. Tell Jesus to Him!
 
Saul was a havoc, a menace, a terror in the neighborhood. So is that unsaved soul near you, in your office, doing business with you. Many are also born again but unsaved like Saul. Saul was a PAUL many ignored until Jesus decided to encounter him. You are the Jesus nearby today. you cant tell the blessing in your neighborhood until you spread Jesus around. You cant tell the solution and wealth of safety in your neighborhood until you pray Jesus into it. You don’t know the gold mine in your compound until you share Jesus. Nothing brings a Change like Jesus. I am a living witness. I didn’t know success, victory and freedom until i began to live for Jesus, my wits and education didn’t hold earthly and eternal value until i filled my life with His dimensions. See how much was in Saul,,
 
-He knew the scriptures but interpreted it to suit his vanities.
-He was a leader in the church but carnal and unlike a shepherd.
-He was educated but frustrated with academic philosophy rather than renewal of his mind.
-He was a leader but a vandal and destructive tool.
-He was a team lead but without focus on true value.
-He was a professional but full of compromise with excitement. -He was energetic but committed to destiny damages.
-He was employed but wrongly engaged and empty of fulfillment.
-He was a teacher but with the wrong passion, mentality and quest.
– He was a prolific writer but he wrote for violence, skepticism, circular humor, vain entertainment and immoral incitement.
 
Saul had everything to change His world but lacked someone with the effrontery to share Jesus with Him. PAUL in Saul was only waiting for an encounter with Jesus.
Isn’t our community, offices, businesses, sectors, nation and world being ruined by Saul(s) that have PAUL(S) in them. God made Paul but Satan polluted Paul and made Him Saul. Every “Bad or notorious Person” you see is good but needs Jesus. Water washes clean with a detergent. The gospel is the water and the Blood Jesus shed is the detergent that changes a Saul to a Paul.
we can save our children from the mayhem that Saul carry. we can also enjoy the uncommon impact, influence and difference of Paul in our nation if only we will share the true Jesus! If you need any change, Jesus is that Change, let no one keep in deception and He is there by your side if only you will care to welcome and acknowledge Him. If you are a Saul, you can become Paul by accepting Jesus and EVERYTHING will change not your own way but His own way, Just follow His precepts in His word (The Bible)
Donot forget, you are the Ananias in the straight street nearest to that Saul (The Adulterer, Embezzler, Thief, drunkard, Gambler, Sickle cell patient, Scammer, Swindler, Prostitute, Liar, False Prophet,) in your neighborhood. You are can be the tool to unravel the Paul in Saul. That your office, desk, talent, business, compound, peer group and professional meeting is the Damascus God has provided to unearth a Paul out of Saul.
If only we can bring Paul out of Saul, we have rectified the economic anomalies of our generation.
Our community and country cant and will not witness any change until we become our brothers keeper! How? Help a Saul to see the Paul in him by showing him Jesus, tell Jesus to him and Praying Jesus for Him.  This is the our duty as our brothers keeper irrespective of what we do, How we do what we do is our tool to make it happen.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY GENERATION & SEX?

So many sour occurrences and experiences have made me to ask this question, i know you have heard and read stories more sour but we cant keep hearing, reading and lamenting without a healing. Sex apparently wasn’t meant to ruin man’s happiness but rather to glow it.  Two will never walk together except they agree!
1. A young fresh man in his green attitude dashed into a lecturer’s office in one of our Nigerian university only to find a him in active sexual intercourse with a student at broad day light.
 
2. A screening inspection was talking place in an office and a career woman had to dash home to pick her credentials only to find her husband in dangerous sexual gymnastic with another woman. He hung on unavailability and sexual famine but the woman knew she was busy but guilty.
 
3. A young enterprising man works offshore and upon an unannounced return discovered his wife in a sexual parade with another man. Sex most assuredly would be one of the vehicles to hell with flippant excuses but that was not the plan, we only bought a different formula.
 
Many corporate executives have unholy sexual demands an appraisal issue. many busy people are lost in the job and lost at home. The career, fame and wealth have become a sickness they can only personally endure. Many are dying in silence concerning sexual matters. Satan has counsel singles to view fornication and sophisticated prostitution as a way out of recession. Student trade sex for grades and graduate without a job, sexually get a job and sexually sustain the job. is that life? That is Hell with sex, a sleep with satanic sex offers you a free accommodation in hell should pass on without a change.
 
Many politician in quest for power has been counseled to have satanic sex with their mothers or daughters. what manner of evil, of course it is obvious that that is no longer natural but inhuman. Sex has its spirit, an erection could take a man off his natural senses and a thirsty ovulation could send a careless woman out of a careless tough. sexual urge can be dangerous and demands the right education.
 
There seem to be more infidelity in the Church than in the world? Adultery is fast becoming a norm. Divorce has become a digestive diet in the Church. What is wrong with my generation? The unholy culture is fast becoming the nature of the Church. There seem to be a flood of immorality sweeping away the Spiritual texture of the Church. Marriages are like planes, we only hear of the ones that crash, no wonder sexual perversion has hybernated in the church. Secrets between couples and ignorant application & communication of Love have also damaged the sexual happiness of many homes. The deception of the age and manipulation of sex has crept into the Church. you will wonder what has happen to the BIBLE. 6 to 1 diet of the bible is a terrible formula for a triumphant life, marriage and sex.
 
The first story was recent and i heard to recall the next two with many more that time and space would not permit me to share , and i thought deeply, what exactly is wrong with my generation and sex. The gift has become sinful goad. Indeed ignorance and indiscipline are powerful combinations that perfect bondage and disgrace. shame is indeed the promotion of fools, a fool is one who rejects the knowledge of God.
 
My generation of young people don’t understand that fornication is like a gadget that when you activate play, it takes God to pulse. Amazingly my generation has failed to understand that Adultery works smoothly with unavailability, anonymity and affordability. both sexual perversion works with disobedience to God. when your Spirit is dormant, your flesh will be active. temptation ride on dominant flesh and passive spiritual control.
 
Sex is a divine gift purposely in marriage but Satan perverted it and mass produced the satanic perspective of sex. Sexual urge is an offshoot of chemicals, it begins with words that drive activation of hormones that increase sexual drive. Words power power touch and touch increase these chemical reactions in the body and sexual drive, stimulation and urge is increased to a point of gratification that ends in sex. sexual urge is a body chemistry reaction that also be powered by a seductive force.
 
It is written the power of life and death lies in the tongue, many have silenced their marital peace and harmony with awful communication. when a wife tells or asks her husband “Is sex food” and a husband tells the wife “are you a dog”. Then they have murdered sex in that marriage.i thought couples are meant to be open, honest and sincere since a third party is a marital death warrant. Only maturity helps a man or woman to hear and understand, more so know how to respond. Age is not wisdom, wisdom is superior to age and puberty. Marriage and sex is a matter of wisdom. it takes a prudent wife and a wise man to live sexually happy. Sexual organs don’t talk but are controlled by communications verbal and non verbal! Sex responds to mentality faster than the act itself. Ecstasy or climax is a powerful communication with heavy consequence, communication is a huge decision process. sex is not love but love leads to sex. Erection is not a defect and amorous responses are not mistakes, they communicate judgements.
 
Never ask your spouse, is sex food or are you never tired? It is scarcely possible to leave sex for food but it is very Possible to leave for for sex. when sex is off your menu list, you are inviting tension in your matrimonial home! Denying you spouse sex is killing the marriage.
 
Sex is not an option in marriage, it is an obligation. If you give a woman everything, all the money and comfort and fail to satisfy her sexually or unavailable for sexual unity in marriage, you have done nothing. sex makes a woman feel like a woman. sex makes a man feel the ego of a man. Sex is God ordained pleasure within the confines of marriage. when a car is not serviced, it will loose viscosity.
 
Don’t kill your marriage with sexual denial. They don’t preach this on the altar. Adam and Eve were naked and not ashamed. Men and Women have varying sexual drive, one party passive and the other passive, In marriage we must close the gap else we brake the edge and the serpent will bite. Couple should talk to each other and be willing to render the benevolence Paul admonished in 1 Cor 7:1-5!
 
Some spouses has been deceived by size of organ for sexual satisfaction, it is not what you have but how you use what you have. The man with the biggest male organ in the world is under torments, lonely, abandoned and rejected. Read it up (Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, 54, from Saltillo, Mexico, has a penis measuring a colossal 18.9 inches.) is that what you want? He laments of such a yoke in his life. yet some women and men are seeking satanic means to increase their organ, are you wiser than God? get out if ignorance and read anointed books that teach Christian ways of managing sexual incompatibility.
 
Safe your spouse the temptation out there. Overgrow temptation by eating well at home, eating out is greed punishable with unwanted and ill-bargained calamities. Whatever has no boundaries, is a bondage.  Don’t employ a partner you may never be able to sack your sour experience with. This and more, my generation must know. I believe that this piece would safe a couple, marriage, fornicator, adulterer and a home.
 
My generation must be healed of this sexual mentality defect.
 
Please share and thanks for taking time to read.

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!

BE FLEXIBLY STRATEGIC

Being subjectively rigid is a lot of work that leads to business and corporate losses.

God is STRATEGIC, He will go for the man or woman abandoned or forgotten to remember a generation, community, nation or people. God works with identifying potentials that no one can see to achieve all that many celebrate in ages. I Cor 2:18-20!

Jesus went to the tomb to heal one mad man who had great evangelistic potential to reach the entire city. He also decided to have a brief chat with a renowned prostitute who had great evangelistic potentials to sell the raw gospel to the entire city. Mark 5:1-20!

Banking was interesting for me, you could be terrible in operations but should they discover that you have some marketing skills you are immediately re-fused. As soon as my BM in 2002 discovered I could speak the three major languages he relocated me from operations to marketing. I didn’t do much but was the best contract staff in marketing because I understood the dynamics between operations and marketing staff.

Some years ago, the bank had a big challenge in one of its IT locations; we had a contract staff in the IT department that resolved that issue that the whole IT team including the GM IT couldn’t resolve. This contract staff didn’t study electrical electronic or computer electronics. He didn’t even have a degree so he was often relegated and dispersed but inside him was the solution that could have cost the bank several millions. This young man went to the scene and resolved it in days what for months experts couldn’t even understand. The contract staff was just talented in anything computer and employed without a degree.

MD/CEO can you identify one manager who can take another market for you? Manager/ Supervisor can you identify a super-marketer that can launch change your bottom line with his skills? That employee that seems a low performer, timid can you surge up the lion inside him out to bulldoze the market your entire team couldn’t handle.

Be FLEXIBLY STRATEGIC. Manager all that you are wasting the business funds for is in that staff you hate so much, pastor all that the church is suffering can be resolved from that seemingly poor brilliant brother but you ego and office would not allow you consider it. Bishop you know your problem is one private sin that nobody knows about but the euphoria of your position cannot make you apologize to the man you offended. Capon you know that you are suffering in that cult but you feel too big to respond to altar call. There is one thing to get all other things done. Stop being headstrong about giving God that chance to settle all your matter. See the flexibly strategy..

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and EVERY OTHER THING SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. What are you running about for? What has been your entire race in life about? Wouldn’t you rather consider Mathew 6:33!
