"You know this our job doesn't provide accommodation so I will find one tiny house in Jikwoyi, that's what my salary can afford" Samuel looked at Emeka and smiled "Me I am not going to live at Jikwoyi, I will find the nicest 3 bedroom around Wuse 2 or Asokoro and rent it".
Emeka looked at Samuel as though he was insane and said "where are you going to get money to rent that kind of apartment?" Samuel laughed and said "God will provide".
Two months later, Emeka moved to Jikwoyi while Samuel got a beautiful apartment at Asokoro.
These are 2 men working in the same organization, earning the same salary but different results. What is the difference between these two? One decided to use his faith while the other decided to base the quality of his life based on what he earns.
If the son of Dangote was to be working in an organization that pays N50,000 a month would the quality of his life be that amount? Would he walk to work and live in a miserable apartment because of the amount he is paid? Your guess is as good as mine; the answer is NO! Why not? Because he has a father who is rich! So whatever the job cannot provide, he simply goes to his father and says "daddy my salary is 50k but I need a house and a car including additional money to supplement my income" would his father say "live your life based on your salary?" No! He would provide everything the job cannot provide because he is a son!
The bible says in 1 John 3:1a (KJV)
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:
You are a son of the Most High God! Whatever man does not give you, God can give you! God is your Source, every other channel of income is a pipeline don't ever forget that!
Whenever you live your life based on your salary, you have shortchanged yourself. The bible says in Romans 1:17b (ESV) "The righteous shall live by faith.” You are alive because you breath, the bible says the way for the righteous to stay alive is by faith! To constantly aim for God's best not what your salary or your efforts can provide! God wants us to function at his frequency not at the frequency of our pocket or bank account!
Refuse to live your life based on the dictates of the circumstances around you, trust God for big and impossible things and He will make it happen for you.
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
