IN SEARCH FOR GREENER PASTURES?

It is no longer news that every day, lots of people flock  out of developing countries in search of greener pastures in developed nations. It is saddening when we hear of those who are so desperate that they go abroad through boats that are death traps or by walking through deserts and terrible weather conditions.

BASIC SCRIPTURE: GENESIS 26: 1-4, 12:17

MEMORISE: “And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down to Egypt; dwell in the land which i shall tell thee of:” Genesis 26: 2

IN SEARCH FOR GREENER PASTURES?

Thousands have died and many others have been Kidnapped and used as sex slaves because they were so desperate to leave their country in search of greener pastures. The principles of success are as effective in your nation as they are in the developed world, and as a Christian, you have a greater advantage in the word of God and the presence of His Holy spirit in you.

Now, I am not saying you cannot achieve greatness anywhere aside from your home country, after all, Daniel and Joseph succeeded tremendously in Babylon and Egypt respectively. However, if you cross the borders without an instruction from God, you may just be leaving God’s plans for you behind. You are to ask God where you ought to be per time and His direction will keep you on the right path. You may say “Oh, but the situation in my country is not favourable at all; well, Isaac was in such a situation too in Genesis 26, but God told him to stay in that same land in spite of the famine and he eventually prospered so much that he became the envy of the nation. God told him in Genesis 26:3: “Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee and will bless thee;”

This is all that you should be after: the presence of God with you. It is that same presence that made Joseph succeed, according to Genesis 39:1-2: “And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.”

Seek God’s face to know His will for your life. His presence will be with you as you obey Him and the works of your hands will prosper greatly in the name of Jesus.

KEY WORD: Only God Where Has Instructed You To Go!
