SCRIPTURE: And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land. Judges 18:9.
Laziness is one major destiny killer that many people do not pay attention to. You need to realise that the journey to your destiny is divided into times and seasons, and if you miss one because of laziness, you may never be able to recover it.
This may ultimately cause a dent in the fulfilment of your destiny. When it is time to make a move, go for it immediately. Don’t postpone it. Proverbs 22:13 describes such a fellow accurately.
When something needs to be done, do it, whether it is convenient or not. There is no convenience in conquering lands and expanding territories; it is only the courageous and strong that fulfil destiny.
Several years ago, my wife and I, together with one of our sons who was 2 years and four months old at the time, embarked on a journey from Lagos to Otukpo in Benue State, Nigeria. The journey was for a dual purpose of starting a parish of the Church there and holding a Congress.
It was during the rainy season and a major bridge on the way between Ore and Benin had been swept away by the flood. When we got there and found no bridge, we had to sleep in the car that night.
The place was so dangerous that we were advised not to step out of our car at all. I remembered there was an alternative road, so we turned round to go by that road which had been abandoned, only to discover that bridges along that road had also been swept away.
We could have easily turned back and gone home, but we kept going. By the time we had travelled a couple of miles along the abandoned road, the silencer of the car broke off. We picked it, put it in the boot and continued the journey. It was time to go to Otukpo and there was no turning back!.
Whenever we encountered a stream, one of us would go into it to find out inch by inch, the areas where the car could drive. ln all, we spent three days on that road, but we arrived safely and did what needed to be done.
Today, in Benue State alone, we have over 500 parishes of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. Understand your times and seasons and seize the opportunities in them when they come.
