THE CITADEL OF WISDOM

wisdom

A young girl got converted and repented from her old way of living. One day, she came to her pastor for counseling. As she sat down close to the table, the pastor said, “I am going to teach you how to steal, to drink, to lie and to swear.” Being a young convert, she was confused. The pastor continued: “I want to teach you how to steal time out of every day to read something from the book of Proverbs. And then I want to teach you how to drink from it clear, refreshing water, to lie on your bed at night and meditate on its great themes, and to swear that by the grace of God you will put into practice its wonderful teaching.” On hearing the explanation, the girl sighed. (Excerpt from Selwyn Hughes)

A lot of people steal from the government pulse and defraud their neighbors. To be wealthy in all round, you must steal from the word of God on daily basis and be guided by it. For you to be intoxicated, you need to drink the anointing of the Holy Spirit, not olive oil or strong wines. To have a sense of direction, you must lie down during your quiet time and meditate on the word of God. If you don’t have time for the word of God, this world will never have time for you. Don’t say you don’t have time. Susana Wesley gave birth to nineteen children but she also dedicated one hour out of her 24 hours in a day to pray, study God’s word and to meditate.
Selwyn Hughes said, “Millions of people know how to make a living but do not know how to live. They know everything about life except how to live it. I tell you, the more you understand the book of proverbs and the more you put its truths and principles into practice, the more effective will be your living.”
The book of proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon are the citadel of wisdom. If you want to know how to live and be wise, steal from them, drink from them, lie on them and swear with them that you are going to be a doer, not just a hearer.

 STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS 

STRATEGY-FOR-SUCCESS

Rev. Fr. Anthony M. Ozele  remarked, “The tea bag does not release its flavour until it gets into hot water.”  Sometimes, people ascribe their failure to lack of opportunities, education, finance or  connection but Robert Burns did not consider any of these as a barricade to the next level. He was an illiterate country boy that was living in abject poverty and also addicted to wine.

Despite his limitations, he rose up to become one of the greatest poet in his time. He did not depend on his credentials but he relied on his potentials and use it to make impact in his generation.
The scripture says, “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19). God has invested so much in you and expects you to bring your hidden potentials into manifestation.
It does not matter the difficulties you are passing through right now, at the right time, God will change your story. “Weeping may endure for a night but joy must surely come in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).
Irrespective of your challenges, never give up. If you can focus on your potentials on a long term basis,  the world will wake up to celebrate you.
The fact is that when you have a dream, people may fight you, circumstance may confronts you, ugly situations may weigh you down but you should not allow them to abort your vision. You should always be reminded that gold does not glitter without passing through the furnace of fire.
Quitters never win and winners never quit. When the going was tough, Robert Burns never quit. Be an imitator of Christ. He was born in a manger but he left this world as a very important person (V.I.P.). I wish you success in 2020.   WhatsApp : +2348054756015 ,  Mobile: 07061575299 ,  Facebook : Abraham Osemudiamhen Ogun , Twitter: @Abrahamoseogun
