He drew me up out of a horrible pit… and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and established my goings – Ps. 40:2
It is unsatisfactory to chicken out of the pathway of success when you seem to get choked with terrifying difficulties. Most times, you might just be a step away from reaching your desired goal.
To build a credential and profile of honour, you must demonstrate the rigor to subdue the horrifying or unpleasant moments that may undermine your pursuit. Joseph found himself in the horrible pit before he was sold into slavery. He later found himself in the prison before ascending to the enviable height of a prime minister in a strange land.
Does everything around you seem horrible? The present challenge you may be facing is a test of your tenacity in the face of adversity. Don’t cook up an excuse because it will not exempt you from the laundry list of failures. Whatsoever God has promised to you is not a slip of the tongue but a divine promise to keep your faith strong in the glorious future He had destined for you. Therefore, I pray: May the Lord terminate every unpleasant event in your life and bring you speedily to your seat of honour in Jesus name.
