Today’s nurture can be drawn from many angles; however, I chose to pick the account of the land of Canaan that God gave the Egyptians like unto promise as a reference and learning point, which reads, in part: “…We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey… Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great… (Numbers 13:27-28)”
Most of us tend to share and wallow in the misery of reports of giants in our path and instead are tempted to think that a mediocre life is much more easier to live…We tend to be confused by the Fact even what seems a God ordained path presents challenges…we are inquisitive that If we be the owners of such a destiny, then why should it be hard?
Face Your Giants!
I want us to be reminded that the land has been given but is not free of giants and (by the way) nobody said the giants can’t be conquered…a case of David and Goliath speaks more volumes to challenge a contrary thought than any mere words one could ever use to explain the possibility of conquering Giants in your given path…for the record, Canaan was possessed a generation of Joshua that believed that the land was theirs regardless of whether there be giants or not… Just remember that when the giants are encountered, it is by no means a call to frustration but a defining moment for the responsibilities and opportunities that will come your way unto the promise of His answers being yes, in full knowledge that to whom much is given much is required.
The giants help us to find life’s purpose, they make us to believe even strongly and dare greatly so that what mediocrity calls unachievable turns out be your portion.
No wonder Oliver Wendell Holmes claimed echoed that “If I had a formula for bypassing trouble, I would not pass it round. Trouble creates a capacity to handle it. I don’t embrace trouble; that’s as bad as treating it as an enemy. But I do say meet it as a friend, for you’ll see a lot of it and had better be on speaking terms with it.”
Believe. Dare. Achieve. And keep on keeping on!
God bless your fruitful & productive Week!
