THE ENEMY OF PROGRESS- BEWARE DISTRACTION

The enemy can use someone, something, or you to sabotage you.

This means, we need to be very watchful in life as we go. Remember, Samson was called to be a judge, but the enemy not wanting him to become the judge made Samson to focus on non-purpose fulfilling things. Instead of Samson organising the children of Israel together, he was on the lap of Delila thinking he had got love. In fact, Samson's enemy was himself. The enemy used his own desire  to make sure that he did not fulfil his purpose.

Bringing this home to Africa, one can see that the enemy has blinded able-bodies individuals who were supposed to be billioniares through innovation and entrepreneurship with  foolish greed to make them embezzle money belonging to others; and once they can get money through this channel, they will never think of doing the greater things they were created to do, and become who God created them to be--thus, ending up not getting fulfilled all the days of their lives.

If we want to fulfil the purposes for which God created us, we need to really examine our lives geniunely and see if what we are doing is in life with the Word of God and what God has written on our hearts as people. Aside, we need to stop copying people--trying to be like.....so and so.
If you spend your life becoming like someone, then who do you expect to become you?
Dear, you need to be you in both public and private--that is courage and the right path. We cannot pretend to love God on Sunday and then become pen thieves from Monday to Friday--that is deception--doing such is deceiving our self.

Please, let us examine our ways and change to fulfil the purpose for which God created us.

POEMS


Spring

 

Haaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaa

Heeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeee

What is this?

 

It is a sound in nature.

Spring is singing and ringing its bells.

 

Its songs are ringing through the leaves of all plants

They are sing hello to mankind

And hallelujah to God.

 

If spring’s voice are heard through the leaves

 Then, need I sing beautiful songs, that will echo in now and eternity.

 

 

 
Peep

 

Peep, peep, peep, who are you?

Day dream or night dream?

 

I am the future peeping through your mind

Nurture me, nourish me, and help me grow to live in nature.

 

I will be grateful if you will; and, I make you great and greater

Life will also be grateful for your deed and never will you regret

 

But, if you reject me

You will regret and life will disgrace you.

 

Am your better future peeping

Help me grown and pump me out to live in nature.

My ideas


Like roses and orange trees, every success has thorns on it.

Don’t paint your pains. If you do, you will feel it more.

Principles are not cheap; maintain them when you get them.

If the road is smooth, you will speed up and get into an accident. Keep on slowly, yet gradual and you will graduate.

Think whilst there is time to think, and tomorrow will be yours as you act.

Hope and faith are that which make you to say nope to fear, failure and obstacles and go on to become great winner.

Our efforts are steps forward. Be strong and move on even in tough times.
 

How to get to your desired destination

http://theafricanews.com/commentary/46-commentary/6029-africa-is-independent-but-most-africans-are-not-yet-independent.html
“If my goals and continuous steps are not in agreement with where I want to be soon or tomorrow, then I am deceiving myself.”

If time is on my side, then the difference between where I am, and where I want to be are good and wise steps.

A police man caught a thief and decided to handcuff him, because he knew that the man may struggle with him and run away leaving him hurt. That is wisdom. This wisdom can be applied into many areas of our lives for good.

Look, when character becomes a culture, that character is like a thief. If you do not tie it down or handcuff it, it can cause you problems and make you to hurt yourself. For many people, they are not where they are because they are not able to tie down the wrong types of character and desires.

 People as a matter of fact want easy life, instant gratification and more. These sorts of characters becoming culture can hinder our progress. This means, the only way to freedom is to handcuff them if you really believe that you have a purpose and great goal to achieve.

Many military men do end up becoming successful in their field of endeavors after coming out of service. The secret is, they apply the disciplinary life learnt in the military to their personal lives. The discipline makes them to say no to the enemies of progress like laziness, lack of goals, lack of following purpose…etc.

In life, most people can make it if they tie themselves down. My personal research does reveal that many do not make it to where they desired to be because they took wrong courses and steps. Think about some African nations for example: they claim wanting progress and do say they are making progress, but, they are sleeping.

The truth is that, though they brag of wanting to do this and that, they do not take the right steps towards the achievements—in fact, the monies to be used for those achievements end up becoming properties of most of these braggers. These and more make Africa to end up becoming beggar and non-great achiever although it is supposed to.

Taking the wrong steps will always lead to a wrong place. Israel is in the Middle East—if I want to go to Israel, I must take my steps towards the east, and not towards the north.

Our lives can be better, and we can get there if we take wise and simple steps. However, if I take the wrong steps and wrong directions, there is a guarantee that, I will not end up where I desired to be.

Dear, let’s have clear and good goals and pursue them like a lion after its prey without hurting anyone along the way. I am saying this because, the Merciful God is also a God of judgment who will judge all in eternity. Blessings!!!!!!!

The independence of Africans


The late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and many others did fight for the independence of Africa and got it, and not the independence of Africans. In fact, Africa can never be free until all or most Africans are independent.

This may sound foolish, but true. Africa is independent, but most of the people in it are not independent, hence Africa is always dependent though it claims to be independent.

Independence is a mindset. It is mindset that makes people to embrace responsibility and accountability. Independence is that which makes people to sacrifice to serve the needs of others as human beings. Independence is that which makes people not to take bribes from their fellow men, because they believe that they are people of integrity; and even, when they need extra money they know that their potentials can help them obtain the money without letting anyone suffer. Independence is that which makes a man to tell himself, “am wrong and need to correct myself”. Independence is that which makes people to see evil as evil and greed as greed and refuse to participate in it.

Independence is a lifestyle that makes people to innovate to help themselves and others even if it is small. Independence is that which says, “I will be self-reliant in smaller ways and grow to be self-reliant in bigger ways.

Many Africans are not independent; and without the being independent, Africa as a continent can never be independent. So, the real meaning of independence must be taught in all homes and schools until all become independent mentally. Africa cannot prosper with over dependence mentality. Please, let us change!!!!!

A Journey into Abundance

My wonderful quotes and ideas to motivate you

 
ü I know that you have placed your order in life, which is good. To ensure that you obtain your desired order, be patient, prayerful, positive, persistent and courageous.
ü Why do you think God should give you another month?
 What do you want it for?
ü Focus on essentials and leave the non-essentials. Your life dream is an essential. Television is not an essential.
 List what you want the month for, and when God gives it to you, you can use that time to accomplish the purpose.
 
ü To know more about you, look around you.
ü Competence breeds confidence, so always prepare before and action.

ü To live and keep on succeeding, we need to be lively.
ü The truth that sets free are those that we hate and dislike.
ü If a man looses his value, that man is worthless, and deserves not to be on earth.
ü Competence breeds confidence, so always prepare before and action.
ü The fact that I do not see something does not mean the thing does not exist. To see some things require faith, skills and instruments.
 
ü Knowing what we are strong at in life is the beginning of greatness in life.
ü To be great, you must be very strong.
ü To convince yourself, you must talk to yourself in a persuasive way.
ü Hearing the word of God daily is convincing you for God and good.

The opposite will lead to the other side.

Hello World


Know where you are going from the start
 
 
As people, we always need to see the end from the beginning. The truth is, we are not omniscience and we can never become omniscient. Life is full of accidents. However, we can overcome them if we use the capabilities God has given to us. It is the desire of God that we always look ahead when acting in anyway.
For example, if you want to become an engineer in the future, you will go in for courses that will lead you there—that is seeing ahead. If a woman knows that she is pregnant, she will start buying clothes for the baby to come. Doing this is seeing ahead.
The Lord Jesus knew where He was from, and knew where He was going at the age of twelve. This knowledge shaped His perspective and boosted His confidence—in fact He threaded on higher grounds.
People who do not know where they are going do waste lots of time on the road. Some also do end up giving up. However, those who know where they are going, never do that. This is because they do see the glory ahead from the beginning. Knowing and seeing the glory ahead boost them to move on despite the hurdles that may come.
Knowing where you are going will not make you to be afraid. It is just like the people who use boats to come to Europe. What motivates them is they know that when they get to Europe and obtain a job, their poverties will be erased.

Achieving what we desire

Although we cannot have all that we desire; it is also true that it is hard to get what we do not desire.
Desire is a propellant. It goes with purpose.
Wherever you see the word desire, please do replace it with “hunger and thirst”. So, the question is, how hungry arte you for what you desire?
To achieve what we desire, we need to work for it. If we desire heaven, we must hunger and thirsty for it. Without that one will fall along the line. My personal observations and research in life has shown me that many people are very good at talking and never do well when it comes to action. This is one the great reasons why many fail their promises and loose focus off their goals and target.
As people, we need to design what we desire, and desire what we design. If we desire what we design, it means we will be forever willing to follow it to the end—see its materialisation. Almost there, but never there is a life of catching winds. And, the truth is our hands were not made to catch winds, but stuff. So, we need to be serious like mad hungry lion and catch the good things we desire. Lets us be catchers of the good desires and our lives will be glorious.

Thoughts

Amass spiritual health. Admit your failures and fears and do something about them.
Arrive after starting.
Accompany your children wit God’s wisdom; else others will accompany them with evil thoughts. Accomplish greater things, not small things.
Adopt news strategies daily.
Asses all before accessing.
Adore God always.
Attract all good and wealth.
Act once without delay.
AFFILLIATE, ASSOCIATE WITH God and good, not Satan and evil.
Abilities help in flying higher.
Thoughts 2


THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS OUR GOLD AND PILLS. WE NEED EVERY TIME--JOSHUA I VS 8. THE WORD OF GOD IS OUR FUEL. THE FAITH I HAVE IN CHRISTS HELPS ME TO FIGHT ON AMIDST ODDS.
MY HOPE IN HIM MAKES HAPPY. SILENCE HAS A VERY POWERFUL VOICE. ONLY THE WISE CAN HEAR IT. I CAN HIDE ANYTHING, BUT I CANNOT HIDE THE REAL ME. POLITENESS IS NOT REPENTANCE. PRECIOUS IS SALVATION TO ME. IT MORE PRECIOUS THAN ANY TREASURE I CAN THINK OF IN MY LIFE. THERE ARE TWO THINGS WE NEED TO FILTER EVERYDAY. INFORMATION AND THE FOOD THAT WE EAT. THESE ARE THE TWO MAIN CAUSES OF OUR SICKNESSES. IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF SOMETHING IN SPIRIT, YOUR BODY WILL HARDLY BE PART OF IT. UNITY, MUST BEGIN FROM OUR VERY SELF--BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT NEEDS UNITY. LOOK, IF YOU SEE SOMEONE UNHAPPY, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS A TEAR DOWN SOMEWHERE.

My Thoughts 3 
 
THERE ARE THINGS, WORDS  THAT MAY NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO ME. YET, TO SOMEONE THEY MAY MEAN SOMETHING SPECIAL OR LOT. THINK OF SOMETHING LIKE COLLAGE ART--IT IS DONE BY BRINGING PIECES OF THINGS TOGETHER, EG RAGS. THIS TEACHES ME TO VALUE THINGS AS I GO IN LIFE. KING SOLOMON VALUED THINGS THAT MANY REFUSED TO VALUE.
MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS  GAVE A SOLUTION TO LIFE BY USING THE BIRDS AND THE PLANTS. IN MATTHEW 6. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW GOD CARED FOR THEM THOUGH THEY ARE NOT HIS CHILDREN.

HOWEVER, YOU AND ME ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS MEANS, GOD HAS A SPECIAL ATTENTION AND CARE FOR US NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE ON EARTH. ARE YOU BURDENED BY SORROW, PROBLEMS? ARE YOU CONFUSED? HE IS THE ONE THAT MADE WAY WHERE THERE IS NO WAY. HE IS THE ONE THAT DELIVERED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM THE EGYPTIANS. HI IS OUR HELP AND SHEPHERD(PSALM 23, 20). CAST YOUR BURDEN UPON HIM AND ALWAYS REMEMBER TO LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. GOD WILL COME TO YOUR AID. THE FACT THAT OTHERS DO NO CARE DOES NOT MEAN THAT GOD DOES NOT CARE.

The leaders’ character

Everyday I do shine my shoes and faces. It is equally good to shine my character too. Rudeness is a bad manner in life. It can drive people away from me. However, good characters are keys to attracting people.
Being a leader is to lead people and affairs. A manager is not there to manage people’s lives, but affairs of his organization. In the beginning of creation, God dumped the spirit of dominion in everyone. This is the kind of nature in humanity does not permit others to put us down. This character in humankind is that which leads to rebellion when someone presses her or him.
I as a leader have come to learn that, i can gain respect through what I give. This is what refers to as the golden rule is. It works miracles. I have decided to do to others what I want them to do to me. This means to love my team, appreciate them and encourage them. It also means that I should not put them down, criticise them nor insult them. This is because they are human being like me. Again, being their leader does not mean am better than they are.

EBENEZAR

CLIMBING EVERY HILL CAN WEAKEN AND MAKE US WEARY. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU ARE HALF WAY ON THE CLIMB, AT TIMES THE WEARINESS MAKES US TO STOP, OR WALK BACK. IF WE WALK BACK OR STOP, IT MEANS THE JOURNEY,S ENDEAVOUR HAS BEEN VAIN. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO CLIM ON TILL WE GET TO THE TOP.
AT THE TOP, WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY WHERE WE ARE HEADING TO, AND WHERE WE CAME FROM.
JESUS ON HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY ENCOUNTERED DIFFICULTIES, BUT THOSE DID NOT STOP HIM CAUSE AFTER ALL HE IS ALREADY IN FLESH-- HE STRIVED AND WON THE BATTLED TO SAVE US.
WHERE ARE YOU DEAR? ARE YOU ABOUT TO QUIT THIS GLRIOUS JOURNEY CAUSE OF HARDSHIP? PLEASE, DONT. THE LORD IS AT HAND AND YOU WILL SOON BE REWARDED. THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US SUFFERED MORE THAN US, YET THE NEVER GAVE UP. PLEASE, DONT GIVE UP.


 

My thoughts

• Purpose out-leads every good thing. • A bright future begins with knowing and good relationship. • Know yourself, know those around you and the world you live in, and you will face the world with boldness. • Fear can bring insanity. • To live in awareness, you will need wisdom, knowledge and truth—these are mind and eye-openers. • All of us need knowledge to help us understand. To live without understanding is to live in great darkness. • The great cause of accidents is distraction. Watch out! • You are the greatest treasure of God; so, treasure your life and trade it for good.
THE FIRST PERSON THAT NEEDS TO RECOGNISE YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE IS YOU. € To be grateful with what we receive from others is one of the ways to greatness.

Truths from Dr Mensah Otabil

God is starting a new process with Africa and it is expedient for us to position ourselves strategically in order to fulfil our destiny here on earth. We have to live by design. Living by design entails three (3) major areas. They include:
1. To take your life into God’s design. This implies that there is a bigger plan and purposes for our lives.
2. To pattern our lives in a deliberate way. This also means that we consciously choose to make decisions that enable us to pattern our lives after God’s design.
3. To become the best possible version of our lives.
It is refreshing to recognize that God want us to lift up our game to the highest level. We cannot live our lives fulfilling the lives of others. Our lives must be fulfilled to the maximum. We must be the best in all our endeavours. We can purposely and deliberately choose to become who we want to be in future. We have the choice. God is prepared to work in our lives, but we also have a role to play in order for our existence to be purposeful. Our gifts and talents must also be used to the fullest.
SOME LIFE PHILOSOPHIES Philosophy is simply an idea, attitude, beliefs, viewpoint, thinking etc.
1. Pre-destination: This philosophy implies that God has already decided what will happen. They belief that we are going through life because God has already pre-destined it.
2. Existentialism: They also have the notion that their lives is in their own hands. Nobody determines the way they should live. They take control of their own destiny. They control every outcome of their lives.
3. Fatalism: They belief that whatever will be will be as fate may have it. They are powerless in life. 4. Nihilism: This group of people has the belief that the end of man is death. Life has no meaning. They don’t seem to know the purpose for their existence. They discourage the effort of others. They don’t see value in life.
5. Christianity: This aspect is our main focus. “God works in us both to will and do His pleasure”. Whatever we do in life is very imperative. Our philosophy will determine how far we go in life. Although God has a plan for us, we invariably also have a role to play to make our life become meaningful. After life, there is Eternal life. Christians chooses words carefully. “We will be judged by our words”.
TWO KINDS OF FUTURE
Jeremiah 18:7-10 1. Predictable future: What our future will become if nothing changes. 2. Prepared future: This is when changes occur. “Your future is a joint venture between God’s intentions and your choices”.
The power of imagination is an essential tool to use if we want to live our lives by design. Imagination is the faculty or process of forming new ideas, images, sensation or concepts in a moment when they are not present to the senses.
Note: Our imagination basically goes beyond our senses. Living by design starts from our imagination. We must not live on the dreams of our parents. Our dreams must be base d on our own imagination. Imagination will facilitate us to do the following:
• Originate new possibilities. • Re –arrange existing scenarios. • Plot out alternative courses of action. • Create a preferred future for our selves.

Sayings

◾To be able to master physical things(material) and increase in wealth, seek to increase the virtues in you. This is the key. King Solomon sought for wisdom and wisdom made him to have the rest (read Matthew 6 vs. 33).
◾Understanding is the key to knowledge and wisdom. ◾He or she that wants to rule must first seek virtues, not vices.
◾Love has great power; those that know this are great rulers. ◾The greatest rulers unseen are words. Words are governors and they command lives.
IT IS NOT HOW OUR FACES LOOKS LIKE THAT DESCRIBE US MOST. IT IS OUR CHARACTER MY DEAR. OUR CHARACTER IS THE CREATOR AND MAKER OF DIFFERENCE. THAT IS WHAT WE OUGHT TO SHINE THE MOST TO ENABLE IT GLITTER. A GOOD LEADER IS A CREATOR OF GOOD DIFFERENCES IN HIS OR HER OWN WORLD AND GENERATION. TODAY, THERE ARE MANY MISLEADERS THAN LEADERS THAT IS WHY THERE ARE LOTS OF CHOAS AROUND. THE QUESTION IS, ARE YOU A GOOD LEADER, AN IDLE LEADER OR YOU ARE A MISLEADER.
THEREIS SOMETHING MORE THAN SUCCESS; AND THAT IS SIGNIFICANCE. ◾THERE IS SOMETHING HIGHER THAN SIGNIFICANCE; THAT IS SEING THE GLORY OF OUR SAVIOUR. ◾GOLD GLITTERS, BUT GLORY IS MORE THAN GOLD. ◾ WHAT MAKES PEOPLE TO FO NOTHING IS NOT FAILURE. IT IS THE PAIN, RIDICULE, EMBARRASEMENT THAT FOLLOWS IT. THE QUESTION IS, IS ARE THESE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR FUTURE OR NOT? ◾ BE LIKE FOOTBALL IN LIFE. WHENEVER LIFE HITS YOU DOWN, BOUNCE BACK. ◾ REPITITION OF KNOWN MISTAKES IS STUPIDITY. ◾ ACCEPTING FAULTS AND MISTAKES REQUIRES BRAVERY. WHAT A PERSON DOES OFTEN IS WHAT PROGRAMS HIM OR HER FOR SUCCESS OR FAILURE. GOOD DAY.

Seeing the outcome from the start

4 times 4 is equal to sixteen. In fact, if you want 16 to be your result, you already know which numbers to bring together to give you 16. Similarly, to succeed in life does not require much thinking. What is required is “Common sense”. This is the reason why even those who did not get to college could become millionaires.
In fact, it is not the book-long that matters. It is applying the common wisdom at hand as the ants do to save their lives from hunger in winter that is important—we do not need all knowledge to live a better life.
Acting in anyway without first having full or partial knowledge of the out come can be disastrous in life. Although it is good to risk, our risks must be calculable and intelligent ones.
I have seen people who do spend more money than they earn; and, because of this, they are always in debt. Most of such people do end up thinking that it is their organizations that is not paying them enough. For people with such attitudes, no amount of money will be enough. In fact, if you give them a million today, do not be surprised that the money will be finished by the end of that same month. Besides, the sad story is, they will not be able to tell you what they exactly did with all the money. One of the reason for this is they do fail to plan, budget and balance needs and wants with the income at hand. This means, they did refuse to see the outcome from the beginning.
Not seeing an outcome of a thing from the beginning does not bring progress—it leads to accidents. In fact, it is like acting without thinking.
I know that none of us want to do things and regret. So, let’s always see the end from the start even if it is not all that clear to our eyes. Remember, before an airplane flies from Milan to Accra, Ghana, it always makes sure that the end is in order. If there is any problem at its destination, it will not take off. The common sense to help us succeed daily is all within our reach. Let’s use them.

Lack on interest

The bible makes it clear that two cannot walk together except they agree. Today, people go into professions they hate and dislike because they want to make a living. Are we here to make a living or we are to be our best and do our best?
To be in such a condition, and yet think that you want to excel will not be possible. This is because without unity, there can never be progress. People who are in jobs they hate cannot be creative nor recreate. In fact what they are doing is they are passing out time.
If two cannot walk together except they agree, then, people who are in jobs that they hate will end up killing the job; or the job will kill them before their due time.
Dear, what I want to tell you is that interest matters a lot. If you are passionate about something, you can do the thing without feeling weak or tired even when you are supposed to. However, if you are not passionate, 8 hours may seem as millions of years to you. If you agree with this, then my suggestion is to go far in life we need to choose and do something we have interest in, not just anything.

You have greatness in you

This is true, and let me give you few simple proofs to clear all doubts that are in your mind regarding what I am saying.
The first reason is, you and I survived out of nine million sperms to become who we are in life. Secondly, one thing to know and note is that, it is the greatness in us that makes us to grow and do and great things bigger than our physical bodies.
The other reason is, it is this greatness in us that makes us to grow old with time, and makes the body to give up and we fly into eternity. The greatness in us is like yeast in bread. It influences the body to grow; and at a certain time, when growth cannot take place again, that greatness begins to weaken the body in its desire to move on to higher grounds, thus old age sets in.
Part of this greatness in us is the spirit of creativity. This spirit is that which makes us to imagine, create and recreate. When this spirit gives us ideas, we need to act on it. If we refuse, the results will be sadness and regrets. So, we need to live the greatness in us. Beyond this, life will be empty.
“After inner growth, the next thing required is outer growth (create and do great things beyond imaginations).” “To stop creating is to stop being.”

THE 2U’S

. The first U is Urgent, and the second U is Using. So our discussion is urgently use what you have to get what you want. God created us with a body.

Each body has its use. The hand is used for multi-disciplinary activities like writing, eating, driving and… Our mind is used to think and reason, our eye is used to see, our ear to hear and ….

This implies that whatever we have is given to us for a particular purpose, and we must use it without thinking of the barriers, without fearing any human being. To some of us, God has given us the mouth to talk and convince others, sing etc. To others, he has given the ability to write and write beyond comprehension.

The question is, are you using what you have? I mean the certificates you have earned at school, the skills you have and those great talents in you. Are you allowing them to get wasted due to human barriers like bureaucracy which I call bureau crazy. One secret is, if we fail to use what we have at its right place, we will fail and miss it.

I believe you know Psalm 1 verse 3, the bible says, a tree planted by the river side shall be ever-green (mine ENGLISH).This is true. But, do you know something, if the tree refuses to extend its roots into the soil and tap water it will die? If the tree uses its roots, we also must use what we have to get what we want. Let me tell you a story about the tortoise.

The tortoise is the animal that has more qualifications (diplomas, degrees) than all the others on its back, yet it is poor. Yes, it is because it is not using what it has to get what it wanted. On the other, the lion is a king not because of its hugeness, beauty, but because of its intelligence.

My dear great one in Christ, you are going to be great if you use what have. When you use what you have you will get what you want. Jesus used bread to get bread from heaven. With nothing, we will get nothing. Let us use what we have, and we will get what we want in Jesus name.
