Crisis Reveals Friend and Enemy

Crisis is inevitable in the life of anyone that want to be great. This crisis, can be financial, spiritual, marital, relationship etc. Crisis are neither friend nor enemy. The reason is simple, they are not friend because crisis time is demanding and overwhelming, but crisis is also needed for your promotion and elevation. One thing that should be in your mind, the trial of men cannot be commensurate to the appointment of God.

Time does not reveals the truth but it exposes the true color of men. In the school of success originality is what last not counterfeit. We all live in this world of thorn and thistle, wheat and tares, good and bad, also friends and enemies. It is not all the friendly face that you are seeing that are truthfully friends. The only thing that truly reveal the real from non-real is crisis.

Thus, one of the lessons that you can learn from crisis is to know the real people sent from God and identify the sent people from devil. One of the things that will make your trial time become easier is the kind of people that are there with you.

The Questions of life
What kind of people am I around?
• Everybody need Positive Mental Attitude Thinkers (PMAT)
What are the people get me thinking?
• Your thoughts are the solution to the crisis of your life.
What hope are they giving me?
• Hope is a living force that is injected into life situation for positive results
What are the people contributing to the crisis?
• Positive addition will suppress negative intakes.
Who has my kind of story among the people?
• What you behold will determine what you will become.

Therefore, life is not about the situation and condition, but your inner circle (network). If things does not work you need to check the people that are around you. You cannot prevail among the people who are not willing to support you (enemy). And you cannot go down around the people who are willing to bring you up (friends).

Jonathan helped David out of the arrow of king Saul.
Abraham took Lot along with him, but Lot took all the good part of land from him.
Abel offered the best sacrifice in the presence of Cain, nothing knowing has a wrong heart.
Jesus trusted Judas Iscariot with is treasury not knowing that he is going to sell Him for treasure.
Rehoboam answered the elders wrongly and lost his kingdom because of his friends’ advice.

Remember, crisis is a teacher. And one of the things that you should allow to teach you is to identify friends from enemies.

…keep living, keep going and keep winning. Everything is possible if you are positive.

Locate Peace In The Middle Of Storms

Storms and challenges are part of what makes this world habitable. If you avoid challenges, you can’t afford to be champion. Challenges is an agent that is on a mission to test if you are qualify for the next level. As rungs to a ladder so is challenges to life. If you want to get the best of life you have to be ready for the best of challenges.

Every next level will always attract next devil. Jesus will never be glorify without Judas, David will never be a king without killing Goliath and dealing with King Saul. If you want the best of life ready to face your own challenges. The goodnews is that there is no temptation has over taken you except such as is common to man; But God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able but with the temptation will also make the way of escape that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor 10:13)

Regardless is the solution word in the middle of storm. Regardless of the present situation I will prevail. An expectant mother will say regardless of labor pain I will still have another baby. The big question is why will she want to go through the agony again? The big answer is because of a NEW LIFE. Why will a business person invest all his resources, time, life and stay to watch a business grow? I think for the solution he will give to millions and that his dependents will enjoy at the end. I want you to locate peace regardless. You will always face construction challenges if you are building. You will always face growth challenges if you are training and you will always face communication challenges if you relating. You will not escape process if you want to progress.

Today I want you to grow up to know the design of life and ready to go with the flow. There are some things that you can’t change, but there are some things that you can work with. Solution will never surface until you give your best. Answer will never appear until you work hard. Life is not magic, real success is not miracle but the application of the laws of life.

This is what the legend Jim Rohn have to say about Challenges “Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom”. Therefore, be ready to give your best, don’t relent, don’t be weak, refuse to give up for your right, because the time is now. And note regardless of the situation to locate your peace.

…be inspired, live abundant life and help others, because life is good.
