PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: THE SPEED OF TIME.
Text: Ecclesiastics 9:11
11: I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Time is what God gives everyone equally; a rich man does not have more time than a poor man, in fact that difference between a poor man and a rich man is the use of time. Contrary to the view of many, time is not money, but there is much relationship between time and money.
While money cannot buy time, a good use of time can produce money. Time also fly like money, how do I mean? You must have at one time or the other wondered how you spend a good amount of money in a short period of time, that’s exactly how time flies.
July 2018 is just left with a day, just 5 months to end this year, but a flashback looks like we started the year last month.
By the December everyone of us will ask each other, ‘ what have I achieved? Some will be happy while some might feel bad because of they couldn’t account for anything tangible in the course of the year.
Can I shock you? Some people are some years back in time of achievement, and where God wants them to be. Let me quickly say this; the saying ‘ what will be will with time ‘ is absolutely wrong, a man is created to make things happen on earth, things don’t just happen, man is made by God to make things happen. God told Adam and Eve in Eden ‘ be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth ‘ Genesis 1:28, he told Noah after the flood in Genesis 9:1 ‘ be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth ‘. You will notice the same blessing and commandment to both of them.
Replenish means fill what is empty, So both of them were meant to fill up something, fill up emptiness, put something in place that is out of place, Adam would not just fold his hands and say, ‘ God will make things happen for me, Noah was expected to get busy to replace what was lost in the course of the flood and all these in a time frame.
Man is meant to make things happen and that with a time frame, this is my main point here, God has pronounced you blessed, the blessing is the power to make things happen, and now you must take action.
Can I shock you once more? People make poverty happen, how? Proverbs 6:10,11 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man. Poverty simply comes by folding of the hands, to enrich yourself you must get busy with something that is productive, look at Proverbs 13:4 The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Don’t be scared, God has blessed you to prosper, you just get to work and you will see the prosperity with time. God bless you.
* As I get to work Lord let me experience your blessing in all endeavors in the name of Jesus.
