If I didn’t repeat matric (Final High School Grade), I wouldn’t have met my wife. Look at God! Not every bad thing that comes our way is bad. Let’s change the way we look at problems.

God trust his design, do you trust the designer?

Ever wondered why God did not take away Moses stammering problem, God trust His designs. What we call problem or challenge in our lives, God will be glorified through it. There are certain problems no matter how much you pray about them, they are not going anywhere. 1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

No problem is too hard for God to resolve. When situations that will be above your capability comes, God will come through. Luke 22:31-32 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Nowadays you are more likely to be hurt in Church by fellow congregants or the pastor because we are ignorant of the powers and principalities that operates around us.

Ephesians 6:11-12 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Once you make a decision to follow Jesus, know that, that on its own is a challenge to the devil kingdom. No businessman is excited to see his customers leaving him. Church should be a place of refuge, filled with love but the devil has infiltrated it because we have made a gathering. 1 Peter 5:8-9 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.

Don’t fight the people around you, there is a real enemy, Satan. Pray without ceasing, any gap is enough for Satan to attack.

There are problems you must keep to yourself and trust God. People will magnify it.

Sometimes problems are not the real problem but how we see them is the problem. There are people who will go to hospital to visit the sick and as soon as they see the person, they exclaim “I did not know you are in this bad state” Just hearing those comments can finish you. Mark 5:35-37 While he was still speaking to her, messengers arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. They told him, “Your daughter is dead. There’s no use troubling the Teacher now.” But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.” Then Jesus stopped the crowd and wouldn’t let anyone go with him except Peter, James, and John (the brother of James).

There is what people say about your situation, what you say about it and God’s view about.

Trust God.

Faithfulness brings blessings while disobedience brings disaster.

Hebrews 5:8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He sufqfered. Whether there is joy or hardship, we must remain faithful to God. In our hardships, we must learn obedience. 1 Samuel 2:30 Therefore the LORD God of Israel says: ‘I said indeed that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever.’ But now the LORD says: ‘Far be it from Me; for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.

Where you were born and the situations around you, does not determine your future. What you do and how think, fails you or makes you great

2 Kings 7:3-4 Now there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. “Why should we sit here waiting to die?” they asked each other. [4] “We will starve if we stay here, but with the famine in the city, we will starve if we go back there. So we might as well go out and surrender to the Aramean army. If they let us live, so much the better. But if they kill us, we would have died anyway.”

Don’t mope around because of your background. Your current situation does not determine your destiny.

Most of us look at our immediate situations and write of possibilities of a prosperous life. It’s in difficult times where great ideas are sometimes birthed. Being from poverty background does not define you. Anything is possible in life if one think right. Start small and aim for high goals. Matthew 25:24-25 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

You can never be great if you don’t see yourself as such. You cannot rise your own confessions. Think Right, Think Positive, life has so much to offer.
