It is so interesting, how God pass his messages across to his children especially to young people. He could use any medium one could even think of. That is why He said “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways and for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah:55:8-9
I had this wonderful experience recently that made draw a conclusion on this.
I saw a picture on Twitter recently carrying a message that made so much sense to me,even though I thought that was all about the message. I never knew there is more to it.
Here is the picture I saw
Powerful message right?
To me, It speaks to young people that desire and crave to make exploits and make a difference in life.
For the sake of emphasis here’s what is written on the picture –
“whatever you don’t deal with before God takes you to the throne may destroy you on the throne”.
These could include but not limited to pride, pornography, lesbianism, fornication, lies, cheating, cultism and the likes.
Apostle Paul forewarned us about this by saying… For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 Timothy:3:2
It so important that we ask God to help us deal with these things before we rise to the throne.Throne could mean be excelling in your career, being a successful business mugu, even as simple as living your dreams or walking in your purpose for life.
Nothing is as disastrous as rising to the throne and getting destroyed on that same throne.
We know what our negative habits and negative behaviors are. Of course nobody knows you better than yourself, you know those secret sins than anybody else.
God is always ready to help us deal with all these things. He said this practical in the book of Isaiah “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah:1:18
But we need to be ready as well, we need to take responsibility for our lives,especially while we are young and still in the process of getting to our throne of glory.
Taking responsibility here means a deliberate quest for solutions to get rid of these habits or behaviours as the case maybe before you get to the throne and it eventually get rid of you,but that wouldn’t be our portion in Jesus name.
It’s high time you approached these with all seriousness, make a project out of it.
I see God pulling us out of the miry clay and setting our feet on a the solid rock.
I will leave you with this short story… Which shows a clearer picture of the picture above..the more to this picture i mentioned earlier.
There was this pastor, who had a daughter and a wife, who was heading a branch of a popular church. On a faithful day, the pastor and his family all went to visit the lead pastor of the church and in the course of their visitation.
The daughter’s phone rang repeatedly in the middle of their discussion with an ungodly song as her ring tone , of course you know how Nigerian Christian parents would behave.
So unfortunately for the girl the lead pastor’s wife ceased her phone and started scolding her about the kind of songs she listen to and went further to check her phone and discover pornography video and pics on her. All this happened in the presence of the both families. Of course you know the reactions of any Nigerian parents in a case like this. Where did you get it from, resounded in the room. After so much pressure on her said she got it from her dad’s smartphone…. Hmm
What…? Everyone shouted in the room,… I guess you know that this story will definitely not end like the regular story .. And they live happily after….. End of story…
I leave you with this…. Nothing is as disastrous as rising to the throne and getting destroyed on that same throne.
