Welcome to #KingdomManna on #InspireAfricaProject! If you want to succeed in life you must be on the look out for whom to help. The person you maltreat today can become the landlord of your children tomorrow. I heard the a story of an old man who wanted to board an airplane. A young man helped him to get to his seat. After sitting down he said to the young man, “what do you do?” The young man told him that he was a businessman, and he supply goods to organizations and individuals. He also told him about the company that was owing him over N100 million and have refused to pay him.
The old man asked him the name of the company. Guess what? The man in charge of the company was the old man’s son. He gave the young man his card and told him to meet his son. When he got there he was paid immediately, and more contracts were awarded to him. He was in need, and as he helped someone who was in need, the man became a link to his own need!
It is said that you’re only six people away from anybody you want to meet in life. The interesting thing is that the link to whoever we want to meet are always close to us in disguised manner. The link can be disguised as your servant, domestic worker, or an employee. I strongly believe that God has brought many destiny helpers to us, but our attitude drove them away. Your link to the top is not far from you, but you must be compassionate to be connected to them.
While running from king Saul, David and his men camped at Ziklag. One day they went out, and the Amalakites invaded their camp at Ziklag, captured their wives and children, and set the camp on fire. When David and his four hundred men returned, they couldn’t believe what they saw. They cried all day long to the extent that they didn’t have the strength to cry any longer. David’s men even wanted to stone him to death.
But David took responsibility and encouraged himself. He enquired from God to know whether he should go after the Amalakites. God told him to go ahead. Himself and his four hundred men began to look for their families. Look at what happened in 1 Samuel 30: 10- 20;
“But David pursued, he and four hundred men; for two hundred stayed behind, who were so weary that they could not cross the Brook Besor. Then they found an Egyptian in the field, and brought him to David; and they gave him bread and he ate, and they let him drink water. And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs and two clusters of raisins. So when he had eaten, his strength came back to him; for he had eaten no bread nor drunk water for three days and three nights.
Then David said to him, “To whom do you belong, and where are you from?” And he said, “I am a young man from Egypt, servant of an Amalekite; and my master left me behind, because three days ago I fell sick. We made an invasion of the southern area of the Cherethites, in the territory which belongs to Judah, and of the southern area of Caleb; and we burned Ziklag with fire.”
And David said to him, “Can you take me down to this troop?” So he said, “Swear to me by God that you will neither kill me nor deliver me into the hands of my master, and I will take you down to this troop.” And when he had brought him down, there they were, spread out over all the land, eating and drinking and dancing, because of all the great spoil which they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from the land of Judah.
Then David attacked them from twilight until the evening of the next day. Not a man of them escaped, except four hundred young men who rode on camels and fled. So David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away, and David rescued his two wives. And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered all. Then David took all the flocks and herds they had driven before those other livestock, and said, “This is David’s spoil.”
There are important lessons we must learn from this incident. First, the Amalakite who abandoned his servant was a wicked leader. How can you abandon your faithful servant just because he was sick? Now the servant he abandoned led David and his men to send him to the grave.
Few days ago, I read the story of a young man who was attacked by armed robbers while returning from work. While he was still at the hospital, his boss replaced him at the office immediately. What a wicked boss! I won’t be surprise to hear very soon that a rival organization has employed that young man, and am sure he will give them some tips on how to have an edge over his former organization.
Secondly, David never knew that the young man would assist him in bringing back his family. He saw someone who was in need and helped him. He did not know that the person he was helping was a link to the people he was looking for. I believe God positioned that young man to help David and his men to find their family, but their behavior towards him would determine whether he would help them or not. So the person in need become a link to David’s need!
Don’t despise or ridicule anyone because of their position today, they can become your ladder to the top tomorrow. It was the house help of General Namaan that directed him to where he was healed from leprosy. It was the servant of king Pharoah whom Joseph helped to interpret his dream that connected him to the palace.
That young man who is serving you right now can become the savior of your children tomorrow. If you want to be helped, kindly look for someone to help. If you meet the needs of others, God will arrange those who will meet your own need. Don’t look down on people because your destiny helpers can come in a disguised manner. May the Lord lead you into your wealth place this week. Remain ever lifted!
