I Shall Be Great. I.
“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.”
Genesis 12:1, 3.
“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
What is greatness? Greatness simply means measure of personal achievement or success. We can also refer to it, with the mind of a layman, ‘as cumulation or end result of man’s time to time efforts or labour in this world.
However, part of the layman definition says; _”…end result of man’s time to time efforts or labour…”_ But is it totally correct? For the scripture says; *”…this is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.”* (Zechariah 4:6) This implies that for one to be truly great, he or she needs divine support, without which all efforts, labour or struggle can be destroyed or amount to zero.
More so, Abraham’s obedience to instructions with divine intervention through alignment and his diligence, are there for us to consider also.
Finally dear friend, in order to be truly great, you have to daily connect yourself with God, obey his directives, and put up your best, so that your efforts or labour will not be wasted. May God, your maker, make you great indeed in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
I shall be great. And be a blessing to my generation and generations yet unborn.
Father Lord, in your Mercy and Grace, let me be great indeed. Please, crown all my efforts and services with good result in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.
