There are times in our lives when darkness seems to be our light. Times when the challenges are overwhelming and unending. Times when we think it can’t get worse than this and suddenly it truly gets worse than the initial worse. Many of us have gone through such times, some are going through such times now, our nation is passing through such a phase. Literally, darkness has become our light as a nation. No power. No fuel to generate power by yourself. No money in circulation. Job cuts everywhere. It is just darkness all around.
It is important to know that every event and season has a life cycle. There is an end to every darkness. Surely there is an end. Proverbs 23:18. It will pass and you will emerge stronger and better. Among all the options available at such times, there is one which must not even be considered at all, that is the option of giving up. If you faint in the days of adversity, your strength is small. Proverbs 24:10. Never Give Up!
Why do we go through such times? Sometimes we cause it through our actions, decisions or inactions, but God is still faithful to take you through. Sometimes it is part of God’s plan for us. No Red Sea, No Canaan. The pathway to the throne is ladened with many throes. It is designed to test us, prepare us, cook us and build us for our divine assignment. So stay put and let Him take you through. Isaiah 50:10.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
Good morning Nigeria!
