07 July 2023: THE TWO CHALLENGES OF LIFE (1) – Romans 4:19-21; Hebrews 11:3


You can’t have any gain without some pain somewhere. Any gain without pain is an illegal gain and you are going to lose it eventually. The greater the glory that is to come out of your life, the greater the righteous challenge you are going to go through. It is the righteous challenges that prepare you to handle the challenges of glory. There are two challenges that you are going to face in your life: the challenges of problems and the challenges of glory.

If you are made the governor of your state today, it is not just for enjoyment. There will be opposition against you as soon as you become the governor. People will start to bother about things that concern you that they were never bothered about before. That is part of what you have signed up for it! The question then is “Can you handle what you signed up for?”

The road you are going through is what is going to prepare you to handle what you are going to face.

A woman that is delivering a baby with a killing labour pain may say, “Cut off my head, I can’t take it anymore!” That is not a reasonable solution to handle the situation because the doctor will only end up having two dead bodies (both the woman and the baby) to deal with. The woman can do something stupid if she focuses on the labour pain. What she needs is to focus on the fact that the baby is coming out.

PRAYER: Lord, I fix my gaze on your promises and covenants for me and not on the negative situations around me. I receive grace to walk my road and receive the promise in Jesus’ name. Amen!

1 Chronicles 4:5-5:17; Acts 25:1-27; Psalm 5:1-12; Proverbs 18:19
