The teacher of teachers...
‘Good Friday’ is instituted
as a holiday in many countries around the world.

But everything that happened during this period,
thousands of years ago
master plan and it had been written down before
it eventually happened.
was God’s idea and

When was the last time you had a new idea? What
did you do with it? Did you let it escape? At times,
ideas flow to us but if they are not written down they fly.
It is the pen and paper that we use to capture them,
put them down and turn them into a reality in our lives.

The major part to planning is to write it down. We must
cultivate the habit of writing. It is too crucial and important.
The shortest pencil is better than the longest memory.
There are always so many options but when you sit down
to plan you are able to define accurately where you want to go.

Planning increases your personal efficiency. It helps you to
identify your strengths and weakness.

It helps you recognize your strength because when
you sit down to analyze how far you have come;
suddenly you realize that there are some things
that have worked.

In planning, I have realized that one needs to
deal with one’s weakness.  I am an idealist.
I always plan on ideal circumstances and the
ideal circumstances are usually not realistic.

Planning helps to build your self-confidence.
When you begin to see some positive results,
it envelops your self-image and self-esteem.
This gives you the confidence to confront bigger
issues and move forward.

Please note that when you make your plans,
make sure they are flexible.   

Your dreams are becoming realities and your
miracles are coming to pass.

Everyone faces challenges and battles that try to stop them from attaining their desired goals in life. Some of these battles are internal, while several others are external.

My intention here is not to distinguish between these battles and identify which one is stronger or otherwise, rather it is to establish that they exist and look at ways to respond to them when they come staring or roaring at us in the face.

Jesus, our Saviour (provided you are saved) faced several battles while He walked the face of the earth as a mortal man (though He Himself was/is immortality personified), but did not forget who He was.

And this is instructive. Many of us forget who we are when we are faced with situations of life that are subject to change. We forget that “He that is from above is above all.” We forget that “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.” We forget that “the things (challenges) which we see are temporal, but the things (solution) which are not seen are eternal.” We forget the promises of God and His faithfulness to “Never leave nor forsake us.” I mean, we forget that “there is no temptation (challenge) that has overtaken you except such as is common to man and the Lord will with the temptation make a way of escape.”

But look at what the Bible says of Jesus in Hebrews 12:2b, “Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Now, this is where the real challenge of your faith comes in. In the “a” part of Hebrews 12:2, it says, Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”

What this implies therefore is that you should take Jesus as your role model and focus your attention on the glory and gain ahead rather than the gloom and pain you may be faced with by paying the price of going through whatever challenge may try to oppose you knowing that at the end of the tunnel your light will shine just as He is sat down today in glory at the right hand of God.

In the final analysis, don’t let the challenge that you see today deny you the chance to see the change that is ahead, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
