Against all odds

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"Unless the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely now you would have sent me away empty-handed. God has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.” Genesis 31: 42 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: Genesis 31: 36-42, Genesis 28: 11-22, Psalms 23: 1, 

There are 3 major reasons why people don’t fulfil destiny.

⁃ Laziness: when you are so lazy, you can’t fulfil destiny. Laziness stops people from achieving greatness.

⁃ Procrastination: it’s saying you will do something tomorrow & that tomorrow never comes.

⁃ Excuses: trying to give a reason why you can’t do something. 

A dream makes you go against all odds. Anytime you think about quitting, remember and think about the dream God showed you. When you feel weak or discouraged, remember God’s promises concerning you. What have you been facing, that has made you give up? If you are not a quitter but a sticker, you will be rewarded. Is that dream still alive in you? Or have you changed it? If God showed you, take the little steps. If you can be faithful in the little things, God will bless you will plenty. Why do you give up easily?
