Romans 8: 2 Corinthians 4:7-12
Each time one sips a cup of tea, one beams with a smile and says this is good. What does one actually term to be good then?
The same experience is had at meals or after tasting a soup. Is it that the water, the spices, sugar or what have you is good!
It is a combination of all for if one is taken out, the aim of the whole preparation would have been defeated.
In the same vein, life is a combination of all things good and bad alike!
One man who, understood this about life is job. Check his reply to his wife (Job 2:10).
Notice however that there are combinations that do not combine! Put milk into your fruit tea and you will understand me better.
Do not opt for the good and cast away the bad just as many for instance, would have loved to suggest that God prepares their tables in the absence of their enemies (Psalm 23:5).
Joseph said to his brothers, you meant it for evil but God turned it out for good. Without the brothers selling him, his dream would have delayed.
Life is about a push! You however reserve the right to say where it will land you.
In luke 2, the bible tells the story of a woman called Anna who was a prophetess. Lets learn from her.
Hear our all knowing God: Ecclesiastes 7:1 3-1 4.
As such discover the power of showing gratitude in all situations (Philippians 4: 4-6).
- Have hope
- Have a spirit of not giving up (the late Israeli PM and his take on the spirit of his people). Someone once told me that what he hates about me is my stubborn spirit!
- Be persistent and have faith in God
- Be diligent: “Diligence is not only about working hard but more of being smart while working hard” e.gcutting a tree with hammer and doing same with saw blade.
