From my place of hibernation, I bring you this!!!
Ezra Chapters 4-6 were my study chapters this morning. If you have a spare moment, read those, then study the book of Nehemiah and then listen to Bishop Jakes’s message of Saturday 26th August morning @ HOTR Lagos. After these three steps, you will understand why, where, how and where concerning your journey and the assignment God has placed in your hands. The fact that you derailed by your own choice or by someone else’s influence or you got distracted and you stopped or quit is all in the plan to get your eyes off chiselling the rock, stay focused with your chisel in hand and ignore the CHIPS and keep chiselling. The chips are meant to drop as the chiselling goes on!!! One day soon I shall share my story and testimony on my own distraction and derailment, I bounced back, yes I bounced back, it was not easy at all to bounce back, I did, by the help and grace from God and I am back on track!! Man cannot help you bounce back, all they do is the judge and criticize and condemn and abandon you. They will spread tales of your distraction and derailment and work to weaken your hands. On the other hand, God lovingly sees you through it all and steers you back to your path!! He points out the lessons and please, just ensure you learn and abide strictly. Ignore the chips and keep chiselling!!! The experiences you garnered in the time of derailment comes in to help you during the rest of your journey and even helps you more in helping others who run to you or who you know are facing such challenges of losing focus and derailment and because you have been through it, rather than judge and talk down on them and make them feel worthless and even derail further, you show them, same love your God showed you, you cover their nakedness and help them regain focus again!!!!
