So, erm, I’m back again. In my previous post I talked about how people often pray to be blessed when God expects them to use their brain. I initially said I would start from the believer, and so………let’s ride.
Now the believer is a very unique person. But for some reasons I am yet to understand, most believers have not understood what I like to call “the secret of balance”. They rely heavily on prayers even for the most trivial cases, and do not remember on time to make use of their brains. Now let me explain a bit further.
The secret of balance is something that I’ve learnt from life experiences. It is not something complex or deep-seated; in fact we’ve heard it so many times that it has lost its value for some people. The secret of balance lies in this simple sentence:
WORK LIKE YOU NEVER PRAYED, PRAY LIKE YOU’VE NEVER WORKED
That’s all. No additives, preservatives or coloring agents. The problem we have in the world today is that believers have been brainwashed into thinking that they do not have to do anything, so they pray like they’ve never worked and ignore the work part. They spend their time “fellowshipping with the Lord” at really wrong times, end up misusing their time and mixing up their priorities. The unbelievers use their time, discipline themselves, use their 5 billion brain cells to create wonders – and the believers pay for these wonders with their money. What a scene!
My fellow believers, please wake up! God is a God of His word. Most times He answers our prayers by giving us ideas, beautiful inventory plans and strategies that when put in practice, lead us ultimately to the blessings we pray for. God-given ideas follow His principles, and would never take you out of His will. God is always doing His part per time; are you doing yours?
TILL I WRITE AGAIN
