In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day (Gen 1:1-6)
Economic woes, Hardship, Chaotic conditions, High Inflation are not new events; they have happened in times past and will continue to happen. What is important is; WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Many Believers will say, they will PRAY UNTIL GOD CHANGES IT! As good as this intention is, this alone will not change the situation. As the Law of Inertia states: Matter will continue in motion or remain in a state of rest until an external force is applied.
Unfavorable Matters will definitely continue until something is done. A keen look at the scripture above reveals that during this unfavorable and chaotic condition, God did something about it. His action turned things around and produced a beautiful planet with a self-sustaining garden with magnificent creatures. He did not just make things better but went on to create things that never existed before.
PONDER: One profound fact is that He did all these without any external resource, Heavenly aid/bail out but used what was already available.
How did He achieve this?
From Verse two (Hovering over the face of the waters) we see that He was scanning the environment (covered with waters). This He must have done in order to assess the whole situation identify resources and creatively brood over positive possibilities.
We are not told for how long He did this, but we can see that as soon as He had an Idea (Let there be Light). It created the First day of a Favorable and Glorious future.
#Wiser: You don’t wait to get into the future; you produce your future from the resources of Today.
For you to turn situations around, strategic and creative thinking is the first step.
This thinking is to:
- Discern the available resources
- Observe and study the present condition
- Create new and favorable Solution/products
After this has been done, one must then go into action and start creating, inventing and implementing these solutions. This will usher in the Beginning of a personal Favorable economic year for such a one.
In the city of Lagos in Nigeria, there are at least 10,000 shops to one industry. No wonder we are the Market for more Creative Nations. We rather sell goods/products than Create, even the resources we have we export them to be reprocessed and imported back to us. There is no way we can be Economic giants if we continue this way.
Great one, stop complaining about the present economic condition, Reason with God and get Inspired to Create New products and services. This products and services will bring about a transformation in your finances and in your life in General.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land
You are blessed!
