Welcome to #InspireAfricaProject! The very day I discovered that principles are laws with predictable consequences, my life changed drastically. If I jump down from an airplane without a parachute, and believe that nothing will happen to me because I have faith, it means I am simply tempting God and have chosen to equally violate the law of gravity. But if I fall by mistake, or probably because the airplane caught fire in the air, God will definitely deploy his angels to protect me.
If I don’t know how to swim, and decide to jump into a river because someone laid hands on me, it means I am simply tempting God, and I have violated the law of floatation. But if I fall into that river by accident, God will definitely protect me. If you entered 2016 without a strategic plan, and a Chinese man who doesn’t know how to pray sat down by the end of last year and strategically plan for this year, he will definitely achieve more results than you. That is why they are printing our Bibles.
Abandoning our responsibilities to God through prayer is one of the major reasons why Africa is crawling. There is no difference between January and August, it’s only a change of label. There is no difference between March and September, it’s only a change of label. There is no difference between 2015 and 2016, it’s only a change of number. Unless you are a star gazer or those who follow horoscope, otherwise the same God that created April equally created November.
I strongly believe in prayer, fasting and prophecy, in fact, I will share the secrets of intercession with you tomorrow, but I also believe in planning. The only thing that will make a difference between January and August 2016 is what you planned to do this year. Let me show you what you would have achieved by now if you planned for it before January first 2016. Today is the 217th day in 2016. So if you started saving N1,000 from the first of January 2016, by now you will have N217,000 in the bank. If you chose to save N10,000 daily, by now you will have over N2 million in the bank.
If you chose to exercise for one hour daily in order to prevent sicknesses and diseases, by now you would have exercised for 217 hours. Just imaging how strong and fit you will be. You won’t be complaining about sicknesses by now. If you planned to read three chapters of the Bible from January this year, and you started from the book of Genesis, by now you would have read 649 chapters, and you will read Proverbs chapter 21 today!
Just imagine how spiritually ruggedized you will be by now if you started praying for one hour everyday from the first of January. Someone that has prayed for 217 hours this year will definitely become a terror to the kingdom of darkness. Lets assume you used to spend N5,000 daily in the previous years, and discovered that it’s eating deep into your capital and chose to spend N3,500 from January this year, by now, you would have saved N325,500! I have always maintained that the value of everything is in numbers. If you want to know the value of money, multiply it by thirty years.
I believe Jesus had Africa in mind when He said; “For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.” Luke 14:28-32.
If you entered 2016 without a plan, you are like a man who woke up one day and began to build a house by faith, and suddenly he couldn’t even finish the foundation, and ran out of cash. That is exactly why many people are stranded in life. They believe that they can pray down money from heaven. They believe that by declaring good things every first day of every month, they will suddenly succeed. It’s good to prophecy ever yourself, but you must have a plan.
Dear friend, in the next 148 days, 2016 will expire. Sit down right now and strategize on how to utilize these 148 days. You can still achieve unprecedented success before the end of this year. All it requires is to double your effort. Stop waiting for your breakthrough to arrive because God has released it. To gain access to it, you must have vision, goals, daily tasks, weekly tasks, and monthly tasks. If you start saving N1,000 from today, you will have N148,000 by 31st December 2016. God has released your blessing for this year, but you must have the right container to receive it. Order for Twelve Pillars of Financial Success, and 15 Laws of Money to learn how to strategically plan your life. Welcome to the world of unlimited possibilities!
