I’v been a reader of so many blogs, yet still wanted to write my own and express the little vital informations, ideas stalked up in my head. had all plans, sketches and ‘what would I say’- was waiting for the right time! LOL. Too many of us are waiting for someone to come along and tell us what to do next; not knowing whatever we do or neglect to do always catches up with us. Wanting to create my blog, had known my ability, but didn’t understand the assignment, it was until I understood the assignment , I was able to write and share ideas with people and friends.
Where is this taking us to..well there must be a balance between careful planning, faith, and understanding. Yet, if you talk to other professing people or friends, you might think otherwise. For example talk to some people who are unemployed and they’ll tell you, I’m just waiting for the lord to provide ά job. That’s fine but have you sharpened your job skill? Do you have the understanding.!
You say I’m not going to that route, I’m just waiting on God. ‘Oh, really? Then you won’t mind getting hungry for a while then. The old motto for soldiers during the revolutionary and cold war applies here “trust God but keep your powders dry!” Place your life in Gods hands , but stay already.
Nowadays the fetish, Christians, pagans Ąπϑ all categories would say” I trust in God” even though many of them don’t even believe he exist or not. The key point here is that you must do all you can to prepare yourselves understanding that the favour you need comes from above. More so, to walk with faith doesn’t mean you stop thinking, planning, taking advice, and self-correction and discipline. Ąπϑ it definitely doesn’t imply becoming lazy or apathetic. What a distortion of biblical faith!
•trust God for your finances, but don’t blow your budget.
•trust God for safety in a car but don’t pass on ά blind curve.
•trust God for your health, but don’t chain-smoke, staying up half the night and subsist on potato chips and carbonated drinks. Don’t act foolishly expecting help from above to bail you out Wђέή things go amiss, that isn’t faith, its presumption.
rebuke ά wise man and he’ll love you, rebuke a foolish man, and he’ll hate you
Faith, understanding and careful planning go hand-in-hand. They always have and they always will..
TGIF:) Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
