Ade got out of his 2015 S600 Mercedes Benz and took the lift to the CNN studios, he was aware that his face would be on the TV screens of at least a billion people from over 174 countries and he was dressed for the part; he looked very GQ in his Tom Ford black double breasted suit, white shirt customized for him at Saville Row and wine hand rolled silk tie from Harrods. His Giorgio Armani monk leather shoes shone like the sun. He checked his Cartier diamond studded watch for the time, it was 8:55pm, he was five minutes early.
As he stepped out of the lift, Larry King was on hand to receive him and at 9pm, the interview started.
"Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Larry King Live! We have a very special guest in our studio tonight, he is a Nigerian who is only 31 years old and he is the youngest billionaire on the African continent"
"Welcome Ade, a billion people are tuned in right now and they are all eager to know one thing; what is the secret of your success?"
Ade paused a minute and thought to himself, he could dazzle the world with theories and business strategies or he could tell them the truth, he decided he would tell the truth.
"Thank you Larry, I am so honored to be here, I don't have any secret, all that I am today can be traced to a scripture in the bible and it is in Ecclesiastes 9:11 (ESV) Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all.
"Ade are you telling us that you became a billionaire simply because of this bible scripture?" Ade smiled and said "absolutely Larry"
Ladies and gentlemen, 2 factors determine what every man becomes; time and chance! The bible says there's a time for everything under the sun, the question is how do you know your time? The bible also tells us about the sons of Isaachar who knew times and seasons and they knew what Israel ought to do
(1 Chronicles 12:32).
If you knew when your time and chance would arrive, you would maximize opportunities but unfortunately, time and chance is never announced, it can only be DISCERNED!
The Holy Spirit is the one who helps you discern life changing moments. The bible says about the Holy Spirit in Isaiah 48:17b (ESV) I am the LORD your God,who teaches you to profit,
who leads you in the way you should go.
The Holy Spirit is the One who ensures that time and chance happens to you! He is the One who ensures you are at the right place at the right time!
If I were you, I won't wait till 2016 to rekindle my rekindle my relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a person and He talks. He has been with you all your life but you have ignored Him, He is a perfect gentleman, He doesn't intrude but if you talk to Him, He will answer you, if you invite Him into your life, He will make Himself at home.
Take a minute to talk to the Holy Spirit and tell Him you are sorry for ignoring Him, tell Him you desire a closer walk with Him from now on, tell Him to teach you and lead you from this moment on.
