THE MESSAGE NOW
Vol. 4, No. 1 – Monday, 7th January, 2019
(Deut.32:29, Eph.2:15, 4:24, Col.3:10)
A NEW LIFE EXPERIENCE IN A NEW YEAR EXPEDITION
The start of a new year begins with fresh set-goals: new determinations, new targets, new resolutions and so on. Indeed, new resolutions is a common lexicon in the vocabulary of so many. Whilst these set-goals are very attractive on the surface, two key preconditions are often left missing.
In most men’s calculations at the start of almost every year in the existence of man, more often than not, men do not understand that none of these set-golas will ever see the dawn of reality without two preponderant preconditions. The preconditions of new time management and new life experience in God are no doubt absolute. New determinations, fresh decisions and new targets are simply paramount. Get the grammatic syntax well understood.
In the hierarchical comparison between absolute and paramount, the former takes precedence over the latter. By implication, no new resolutions, determinations, targets or decisions will ever record success without effective time management and new life of godliness preceeding. It is a statement of fact that one of the greatest banes which has greatly bedeviled Africa and Africans and left the continent in deep mire of retrogression is poor time management and the fact that many of us Africans do not know God.
Do not get me wrong. I am not drawing a racial comparison. But I have discovered a major difference between African black and the European and the American. Religiously speaking, many Europeans and Americans do not recognize the existence of God but they embrace His principles. On the contrary, Africans claim to know God better than the European and the American but Africans on a large scale refused to embrace God’s principles. This is the difference: observance of principles always produces productive results. Conversely, non-observance of principles produces counterproductive reactions.
The first text in this first edition of 2019 reads: ‘O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!’ That is a Scripture in the Bible that sustains my attention almost every time. Why? Among many things, it is saying that there is consequence(s) for actions or inactions.
IN THE END, WILL YOUR GLORIOUS CHANGE COME THIS YEAR? IT WILL BE DETERMINED BY NO TWO OTHER PRECONDITIONS: NEW LIFE EXPERIENCE AND NEW ATTITUDE AND CULTURE TO TIME MANAGEMENT. (TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK).

Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name. Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
