WHERE THERE IS A WILL….

Even the walls and rocks will crack to make ways for the man that has a will.
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
But while you are at it, striving to find a way where there seems to be no way, bend the rules if you must, but don’t break the law.  And yes, never step on or use other people’s heads as footstools on your path to your longed for heights.

I was returning late from the office with some pals last night. All the same, the unending traffic-holdups that has become the unflattering signature of a once upon a Garden City – Port Harcourt – caught up with us as we were heading towards Rumuobiakani roundabout. It was then that the skipper of this “tri-bike” – Keke NAPEP (in the picture above) insisted on making his own way. The other side of the divide was scanty of on-coming traffic and apparently safe for him to make this move. Risky as it was, he made it through.
You are concerned about the legality of his action or the potential danger he was exposing himself to? So I’m I. But those were not the perspectives on my mind as I watched him. This is Nigeria. What I see here is the ingenuity of a man with a will. Don’t you think so?

I have a will
I will make it
I will make a way.

ARE YOU MAN ENOUGH …..(TO DO THE RIGHT THING?)

I had rather do the right thing & be considered unmanly, a coward or a weakling than to do the wrong thing and be considered a man of, heart and steel – a real macho.

Genesis 39:7-21 (KJV)
7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. 8 But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; 9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife:how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? 10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. 11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. 12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me:and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out. 13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth, 14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out. 16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound:and he was there in the prison.
21 But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

Emmanuel – God with us

Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Mat 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Luk 2:10-11 And the angel said unto them, Fear not:for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Whatever happened to “Vision Now!” ?
          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. 

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

TRUE FAITH IS NOT PASSIVE BUT ACTIVE. It requires that we meet certain conditions, that we allow the teachings of Christ to dominate our lives the moment we believe. The man of saving faith must be willing to be different from others. The effort to enjoy the benefits of redemption while enmeshed in the world is futile. We must choose one or the other; and faith quickly makes its choice, one from which there is no retreat
