While having a deep thought on the present government of my very own Naija, one cannot but wonder. What happened to the campaign promises and all the noise about change. I said it then o, that we were just having a change of party because we have been recycling rulers. You and I know that putting on a new cloth does not change anybody. I just hope I am proven wrong oo.
I hear someone say it’s too early to complain or judge. And am like for real? It’s almost 8 months already. Our people say na from mess we go know the thirst of the sh*t. And some people are still blaming my uncle Jona.
Hmmm, everything has received the change annointing including ‘pure water’. We have changed from ‘bread to kuli kuli‘? Someone said this is Chain and not Change.
Then, I remembered my pastor’s sermon – We thrive in Famine. Yes!!!
That’s some consolation. Exactly what we need right now . Let me share some things I learnt from the preaching.
Faith is not denying the truth that our Naira is now N375 against 1 USD and still rising, or that ‘pure water’ is now N120 or N150 per bag in some areas. Some are owed salaries and some are losing their jobs. Insecurity, uncertainty, hunger, name it.
In the mist of it all, don’t loose focus. Keep holding unto God’s promises and keep confessing it. “It is well”. “..I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread”. “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee”, For “He makes a way in the sea and a path in the mighty waters”. “He makes waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”. In Him we trust. In Him we live and move and have our being. He has promised to make us a blessing and to cause the shower to come down in his season; there share be showers of blessing. Faith is saying that there is a better truth.
To survive in famine, we have to:
- Be open to new business ideas – don’t say it’s not your line, or you don’t know how to do it. Find a away. There’s always a first time.
- Maintain old contacts/customers/friendships – you never know who God will use.
- Be accessible – make sure you can be reached. Publicise what you do.
- Cut down your excesses.
That is it for today. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to send in your comments. I’d love to read them. catcha..
