"Oga na 3 for 100 naira", Deji paid for the oranges and he began to think to himself; this woman selling oranges in traffic was a sales executive just like him, she sold oranges and he sold houses. He thought of the days when he used to help his mum sell pure water after school and it dawned on him that he could actually have been the one selling oranges but for the grace of God.
He called the woman back and gave her N5000. The orange seller and his driver were both shocked but he said to them "I have been there before and I understand what you are going through"
The difference between a mama put cook and a chef is the grace of God! You could pay N500 for a very tasty meal at a mama put under a canopy and then you visit an upscale restaurant and pay N7000 and the food tastes bland!
Don't ever get to a stage in your life when you believe things are working for you because you know how to do it, its the grace of God on your life!
The bible said in Deuteronomy 8: 11-18 (ESV) 12lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, 13and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, 14then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORDyour God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, 15who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, 16who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. 17Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ 18You shall#remember theLORD your God, for it is he who gives you #power to get#wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
Always put God first and acknowledge Him always. The day you begin to feel like you don't need God is the beginning of the end for you. Let humility be your fragrance. There are no successful men, all we have are HELPED men! God used someone for you, it was not by your strength or efforts. It just pleased God to promote you. May God help us all. Amen
