JULY 2017 DAY 26


I watched a local football match in a school playing ground. As I sat down, I asked one of the boys what the score was. With a smile, he replied; “They are leading us 3-0” And I said “REALLY” “I have to say you don’t look discouraged”. “Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look … “why should I be discouraged why the referee has not blown the final whistle? I have confidence in the team and thee managers; we shall definitely overcome!” Truly, the match ended 5-4 in the Favor of the boy’s team! He waved at me gently, with a beautiful smile in his face as he left; I was amazed, mouth wide open.
Such confidence; Such strong unwavering faith. As I got back home that night, his question kept coming back to me. “Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle?”
Life is like a game. While should you be discouraged when the Almighty God is the referee of your life? Why should you be discouraged when the Holy Spirit is your manager? Why should you be discouraged when there’s still life? Why should you be discouraged when your final whistle has not sounded? The truth is that
many people blow the final whistle themselves.


Remember the medical doctor who jumped into the Atlantic Ocean from the Third Mainland bridge Lagos in late March 2017. He committed suicide! But as long as there is life nothing is impossible and it is never too late for you. Impossible is just an opinion. Believe in Infinity!
This is second half of 2017 and today’s scripture verse 8 says: “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in the spirit than the proud in the spirit.” Wow, your end will be greater than your beginning! Yea! Half time is not full time and His calendar for your life is not man’s calendar. Don’t blow the whistle yourself. BE ENCOURAGED! DON’T GIVE UP! With God, all things are still possible! Pray now!
