In life, some may walk, others may run, but remember the Lord gave the tortoise and the horse the same days to reach Noah’s ark.
Your journey might be rough and tough but you will definitely get to your destination.
Jacob looked at Joseph and saw a good son! The ten brothers looked at Joseph and saw a useless dreamer! The travelers looked at Joseph and saw a slave!! Potiphar looked at Joseph and saw a fine servant!! Potiphar’s wife looked at Joseph and saw a potential boyfriend! The prison officers saw in Joseph a prisoner! How wrong were all of them! God looked at Joseph and saw a Prime Minister of Egypt in waiting!!
Don’t be discouraged by what people see in you!! Be encouraged by what God sees in you!! Never underrate the person next to you because you never know what the Lord has deposited in that person.
Your maid may be a Chief Executive Officer in waiting for a company which shall employ your child. Your garden-boy may be a president in waiting. (Remember David got the anointing of becoming a King while he was a simple child herding sheep. Esther was a simple orphaned girl yet she was a Queen in waiting).
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW PEOPLE SEE YOU, IT MATTERS HOW GOD SEES YOU!
God is God:
He doesn’t care about age, no wonder he blessed Abraham.
He doesn’t care about experience, no wonder he chose David.
He doesn’t care about gender, no wonder he lifted Esther.
He doesn’t care about your past, no wonder he called Paul.
He doesn’t care about your physical appearance, no wonder he chose Zacchaeus (the shortest one).
He doesn’t care about fluency in speech, no wonder he chose Moses.
He doesn’t care about your career, no wonder he choose Mary Magdalene; a prostitute. All I know is that my God never changes
He never made a promise he wouldn’t keep.
He never saw a person he wouldn’t help.
He never heard *a prayer he wouldn’t answer
He never found *a soul he wouldn’t love
He never found *a sinner he wouldn’t forgive
This is the kind of God I would like to commune with every day, from the moment I wake up. I strongly recommend Him to you.

I Once Attended A Revolutionary Conference Back In My University Days And Here’s What The Speaker Said….
“…there are two mental extremes – the Very Intelligent and the Very Dumb. Nobody is average.
The VERY DUMB are comfortable at the status quo. They enjoy the normal life. They are very scared of change, reformation or revolution. They are afraid to question authority. They are weaklings whose only strength lies in their muscles. They love easy routes to success and detest rigorous processes. This is largely because their minds are lazy and weak and thus cannot withstand the tough winds that bring about change. Unfortunately, there are more of these in the world hence the huge resistance to revolutionary causes – whether those causes be religious reformation or political revolution. The Very Dumb resist such causes. Top 15 common traits of very dumb people
Then there’s this influential class – the VERY INTELLIGENT class. They hate the status quo. They question everything – everything and everyone. They are disruptive – very disruptive. They come into a space, point out what’s not right and fix it. They go against the crowd like a whale swimming against oceanic currents. They hate easy routes and despise easy challenges. They give their lives to revolutionary causes having understood that the basic purpose of life is to live for others. They are called MAD MEN or CRAZY WOMEN by those who enjoy the status quo.
Common traits of highly intelligent people
They are judged to be abnormal by those who have retired to a normal life. These disruptors are the fathers and mothers of every form of civilization…they are the reason why we have the internet…they are the reason why your country has independence…they are the reason why twins are no longer killed in Africa…they are the reason why Protestants broke out from the Catholic… Without them in a generation, that generation is lost. Hate them, love them but you can’t ignore them. Though few in number, but they never leave any space the same way they found it.”
Then he asked us – “where do you belong?”
My name is Charles Awuzie and I want to ask you WHERE DO YOU BELONG?
