The first employer in the world was God, the first manager was Adam and the first assistant was Eve, it was a family business and the organization was Garden of Eden Farms.
Their vision and mission was to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the birds, the fish and all that God created EXCEPT man! God designed man to be a boss! How do we know this? We will discover that Abel, Cain and all the other children that came from Adam and Eve pioneered something! They were all CEOs! Abel was a shepherd, Cain was a farmer, further generations talk of Jabal who was the father of those who dwell in tents and Jubal who was the father of all those who play music (Genesis 4:20-21)
There was only one caveat; "do not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden"(Genesis 3:3)
When man disobeyed this covenant, God did NOT curse man, rather He cursed the economic system! Genesis 3;17-19 (NLT) 17And to the man he said,
“Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
18It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
though you will eat of its grains.
19By the sweat of your brow
will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
from which you were made.
God said that man would struggle before he ate or had money or lived a good life and this has been the case for mankind. This is the reason why people who have had an easy life are envied. Everyone says "it's not easy to make this money o".
The good news is that Jesus came! Glory Hallelujah! And He said in John 10:10 (NLT) The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
You are no longer under the curse of struggling before you can have money or live a good life! If you understand what Christ has done for you, you will never be part of those saying "money is not easy o". Christ came to pay the price for the curse! Christ broke the curse!
Just like Jesus has broken the curse, you can activate the curse again! You may wonder how but I will tell you; God told Adam and Eve that they could have everything but they shouldn't touch the tree in the middle of the garden, today God is saying "everything is yours but give Me 10%!" When you refuse to give God that 10% you have activated the curse over your life. This is what happens and it is in Deuteronomy 28:23-24 (MSG)
The sky over your head will become an iron roof, the ground under your feet, a slab of concrete. 24 From out of the skies God will rain ash and dust down on you until you suffocate.
There is something God has called you to pioneer! It is part of your covenant to be a CEO! The bible confirms this in Deuteronomy 28:13 (MSG) God will make you the HEAD not the tail; you'll ALWAYS be the TOP dog, NEVER the bottom dog.
Are you on that job you hate because of the salary? Begin from now and let God reveal what you should pioneer in 2016!There is a part of God's vast kingdom and resources that He wants you to manage!
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
Jesus is Lord
