SCRIPTURE: But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. Proverbs 4:18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot go far with God and lag behind in life.
It has been confirmed that there are great benefits for going far with God. You cannot go far with God and lag behind in life.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that the path of the just is as the shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day (Proverbs 4:18).
To make progress in life, ensure you make progress with God. You cannot be a success with God and be a failure in life.
For example, when I was in the University as a medical student, I was President of the Medical Students’ Fellowship on my campus. I later became the National President of the Fellowship.
That made me to travel from one university to another preaching to medical students. I remember one of those days, I returned from Calabar and had just 48 hours to write a 2-year Course Examination. So, I sat and began to read from night till morning. When I lifted up my eyes, the sun had risen, yet I had not done enough. Then I prayed like, “Lord, I need Your help. I have done all I can do.”
So, I went to write the examination and misunderstood one question. The question said, “Write the autopsy finding of a man dying of primary liver cell cancer”. Then I wrote that the man had not died, so why do autopsy? I wrote one line as my answer. And that question carried 20 marks and it was also 20% of the total for that Paper. When I realised later, I said, “Lord, you know that I know the answer. You know what I would have written but the fact that I misunderstood the question, Lord, help me write it down what I should have written”.
At the end, the person who marked my script saw me at the Teaching Hospital and congratulated me for excellent performance. I believe God wrote it for me and if God writes an examination for you, you cannot fail.
Beloved, you cannot go far with God and lag behind in life.

REFLECTION: To give up the pleasures of life for the sake of God is to go up in the Presence of God. Every loss for the sake of God translates into great gain at the end of the day.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: As you make progress with God, no force of hell can keep you behind in life in Jesus’ Name.
