Probing The Status Quo
To ascertain the state of something or a project, there must be a probing and we must understand that our lives are some how a project or should be seen as such and followed up on to get the desired result.
Sometime ago, I realised I was really tired with somethings about my life. It was the status quo of my attainments and achievements all round. There was this nausea about how things have played out in my life so far.
I decided to remind myself constantly of the fact that I was fed up so I can swing into action on the way forward. I went pictorial by making in bold prints these words “Tired Of The Status Quo”. I had one on my desk at work, one in my room at home and one in my car.
I started thinking deliberately about where I am and where I pictured I should be and there was a lot of disparity. Remember, there is a wide gap between letter A and Z, and that gap depicts the journey towards where you’ll find the how plus tools to accomplish. I was committed to getting the how and God did not disappoint me in the place of meditation. Here are the points I highlighted through inspiration and in the next couple of weeks, I will elaborate on them in the preceding editions.
I think this will make up my first(best seller) book but will share with you now free of charge.(lol)
1. The God Factor
2. Deal with your fears
3. Progressive discipline
4. Define your path and part
5. Seek out opportunities
6. Conscious or unconscious
7. What is your language?
10. Re- appraisals
I began to seek the meaning, use and method of application of the whole inspiration. My findings and understanding will go a long way in helping us all fall in line and in tune with our destinies, let’s go.
1. The God Factor:
Remember this bible passage, Romans 9:15-16″For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom i have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom i have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth nor runneth, but of God that hath mercy”
To me if God factor must play out in your life you would recognise that despite your skills, technical know how and expertise, that God by his infinite wisdom crown’s all our efforts with success as he wishes but activated by our obedience to his will for us.
Do you have anything to loose by trusting God or obeying him? I believe the answer is no. If you are in a place of dissatisfaction, then you need to expose yourself to benefitting from God’s excellence and capacity, so as to attract the real and lasting change from the status quo.
Don’t get me wrong, you don’t just have to sit and fold your arms expecting the status quo to transform to what you picture it should be, no . What I mean is this, that you must recognise that there is a supreme being who decides on the affairs of Men according to his precepts and ordinances. So what do we do? Learn from Abraham, who through obedience to God earned himself fame, riches and everlasting lineage, you and I are evidences.
In keying into God factor as illustrated in Genesis 12:1-3 the following benefits abounds:
A. The lord himself directs you
B. God joins you in building your empire
C. He will bless you and make you a blessing as well (abundance)
D. He extends his blessings to your allies
E. He will make you great
F. He becomes your defender
All these for recognising, obeying and allowing him into your life and plans. It works, try it out.
Remember, God factor takes you off from conventional and common sense to total dependence in him, despite your feelings. It questions the status quo.
See you next week and don’t forget, dare to dream against all odds.
