Its such a pleasure writing you today, the last day of the month of October. Look around you, there's something to be thankful for.
Having used 10 of 12 months, its not unlikely that you might feel like you've not attained those miles you had hoped for. Rejoice! Because before miles comes phases and in those phases are lessons, little victories, and many more.
“Life is in phases; men are in sizes” – Bishop David Oyedepo
The farther you go, the better and clearer you see. But first, you have to be in motion. Don’t expect to see clearer when you haven’t yet taken a step. Only those who take steps are entitled to clearer vision. Isaac Newton said, “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age... I keep the subject constantly before me, and wait till the first dawnings open slowly, by little and little, into a full and clear light.”
God never wants to share his glory with anybody so He retains the title of All Knowing by showing us our destination in phases. God loves it when we come to him, and one way he does that is by not giving us all at once. How many of us would still go to God as much as we do now if we knew all about our destination? Not many would. Also, because God often has different assignments for us at different times, understanding each time and season, as well as the corresponding assignment, is what makes the journey of life more successful.
Imagine a driver that knows his/her destination but does not know the route. What you find most common with such drivers is that they ask questions from people around on how best to get there. The thing about asking people is, you may get the wrong directions. So, in our case, we ought to ask God. What a privilege it is that we have the Holy Spirit, so we don’t have to wait to get to the next bus-stop to know the next turning to make even before getting to the bus-stop. No wonder the satellite navigation system shares some features with the Holy Spirit. The system always tells you where to turn next beforehand; however, it never tells you the next navigation until the last instruction has been obeyed. This is exactly how God deals with us and unveils our destinies.
What was the last instruction God gave you? Until you obey it or until you’re done executing that phase, the next phase will not be unveiled. In fact, I believe that life being in phases preserves destinies because when all is known some may chicken out while others may ‘over-speed’ past their destination.
Happy new month in advance Sis, I celebrate you. 💕
Loads of love,
