ON YOUR OWN

So I was in my room, I didn’t mean to eavesdrop on my dad’s conversation, it just happened that I heard what he was saying, you will have to trust me on this one. Okay! What I heard him say triggered something in me, I know I have always heard this statement, but I just found out that the statement is not right neither is it true.

If I tell you what He said, it means we are both guilty of the crime of eavesdropping. I don’t know what the other person said to him. All I know is that he said “you are on your own”. Some people have abbreviated it to O.Y.O (on your own). As of yesterday, I now completely disagree with this statement. I am not on my own, “I am so taking it personal!”

In any battle you face in life or any circumstance you face in life, remember He that is for you, He that is in you, He that is with you. It is this same consciousness of God, that helped David win His battle against Goliath.

Then David said to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword,

And with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee

in the name of the LORD Of hosts, the God of the

armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied (1Samuel 17: 45)

The outcome of the battle as we all know, David killed Goliath (this was like our anthem in children church). David knew that God was with Him, and the battle was of the Lord (1Sam 17: 47), surely if the Lord is in a battle, it’s so certain that He would win.

Perhaps you happen to be sent on an official assignment by the President, you would be able to enter anywhere the President can enter, because you know you have the backing of the President. It was a phone call that brought this to my consciousness that I am not alone. Greater is He that is in me (1John 4: 4). With this few words of mine I hope I have been able to convince you and not to confuse you that you are not ON YOUR OWN!

What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us,

who [can be] against us? (Romans 8: 31)

Meditate on this scripture and know that you are not “on your own” in whatever it seems that you are going through. No Goliath can stand against you, when God is for you!

Please leave your comments and suggestions and I will surely act on them. Part 2 of little beginnings would be posted tomorrow.

NEW BEGINNING

Today is the first day of a new month, I still remember the 1st day of January like it was yesterday, talk about time flying! Remember that some people started this year with you, but as a matter of fact they are no more….statistics prove that people die each day, as for me I say, I have not done anything to deserve this, I don’t know about you. Maybe you slept by taking drugs, but let me remind you that that drug did not wake you up.

So here is the gist: time is ticking! There is a purpose as to why you are alive today. Discover that purpose and take steps towards it. I for one am taking a step with this blog, have you gotten a God given idea, now is the time to start. Remember the parable of the talent, many of us have buried our God given talent, now is the time to seek God in prayers. Paul charged timothy in 2Timothy 1; 7 to stir up the gift of God in him.

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the

gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

There are seeds of greatness in you. Start by putting the deposits of God in you into use and see how it will multiply. Let me illustrate further with something that happened to me last year, few days to when we were to go home from school, I had to buy water several times from the buttery, when it was time to pack I was removing some things I had under the bed, only to discover that I had water under my bed, all the while when anyone asked me if I had water to spare my reply was NO. Many of us have hidden talents, like Paul said stir it up.
