LIVING REALITIES -4
“The heavens declare the glory of God And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge”.
The fourth thing to take to heart as part of living realities is this: Every year is a school! When it is said that wisdom resides with the elders, it is because their long years on earth have afforded them the opportunity to learn a lot of things. More often than not, wisdom is a function of cumulative lessons learned over the years. If you maintain an open heart, there is always something new to add to your repertoire of knowledge.
One of the lessons I was reminded of late last year is the fact that God pays for every faithful labour; but it may not be at own time or in the way we expect. I arrived at that conclusion after my visit to the Caribbean. My labour in a ministry in Nigeria more than 10 years earlier translated to open door of ministry to the nations. I also learned another lesson; that God does not need the permission of your enemy to bless you. Now, that should get anyone excited. We don’t have to cringe at the thought of any enemy because God is sovereign over all. The enemy cannot harm you without God’s permission; and God does not need to consult with your enemies to execute His agenda over your life.
