There are situations that our money, our qualifications and skills cannot deliver us from. Every deep thinking person knows that insurance companies only pay damages after accidents has happened and sometimes irreparable damages incurred. Only God can keep us safe in face of calamities, and this is the edge every believer with understanding gets.
The Sons of Prophets in 2 Kings 6:1-7 had everything needed to construct their desired expansion camp but as believers after we must have put in place plans to tackle the physical, we must ensure we put spiritual plans also in place because many times, it is on spiritual ground that many people get knock down and never get the chance to recover.
This year, don’t make God a 911 channel, make Him the foundation of every plans.

Topic: Focus on Following Patiently
Hebrews 12:1 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”
This opening text is a frequently read text, but have you noticed the seemingly contrasting terms there: ‘run’ and ‘patience’? Speed and haste are not the same, what God is requesting us to do is to follow His directions but carefully and patiently, doing it as quick as His grace avails.
We know there is triumph assured at the end of following God, but nobody gets the prize ignoring instructions. Does it often feel like things don’t work out even after following His directions? It’s high time you did so in God’s way and at His pace. Peace.
Talk to God: Father, teach me patience in you in Jesus name, amen.

Topic: Focus on Getting Directions 2
Romans 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
As believers our key aim should be to follow God’s instructions. When we buy electronics, machines etc these things come with manuals and a manual is a guide that direct us on how to operate. Operating the gadgets without the manual is dangerous, doing things without God is hell on earth too.
As kingdom ambassadors, we need to commit our ways to His hands for directions. When you are directed by God, victory, success, joy and peace is certain. Will you go alone this year without God?
Talk to God: Father l can not go without you, help me to listen to your directions
