Sometimes… We need to pause and ask ourselves “where are we rushing to? Must it happen now now?”… Abraham received promises from God but it never happened in a flash… In fact to the moment Abraham died, his physical eyes didn’t see these things manifest. He wasn’t in a rush because he knew “if God promised it, He will fulfill it. I just have to allow Him do His thing”.

:

You must not do that mega crusade because your friends are doing it. You must not hold that concert because your friends are doing it. You must not rent a ware house and start up a Church gathering because your mates are doing it. You must not marry because your junior ones are already getting married… You aren’t rushing to anywhere.

One day I looked around me and my mates were either doing great in their business, doing their masters in UK,  getting married and all of that! I got a bit worried. One of those days I was in a committee and everyone had a car and lived in their own rented apartment. I was the only one who still lived in my parents house, who couldn’t boast of a completed academic program and who couldn’t boast of any tangible material thing… Yet, I was considered the most skillful! To be frank… I got worried. I got mad at myself and I even wanted to get mad at God for making me and putting me in a place where I never had access to those things my mates had early access to, I was in the University and then I had to pause till I could afford to continue. I was beginning to magnify these things that I started forgetting some great things God has been able to do through me.

I wanted to just hit it in a flash but then it seemed my senses came back and I asked myself “where are you rushing to?”… I realised I was worried for nothing. I have seen my future, I know how great it looked, I wasn’t going to relax and it just happen anyway but I wasn’t to rush into it. It just happens in its time. Then, I calmed down, looked at the little things I had achieved, this same things weren’t achieved by the people I envied. Those people I wished I had become were also wishing they had what I had and then I bowed and said to God “I am so sorry for getting mad at you for nothing… Thank you for who you are making of me everyday”

:

I may not be able to afford my future but I am not the one to sponsor it anyway. God designed it, I have leaved it to Him to handle. 

:

Right now… The rush is over. I have chosen to walk with God.
