He polished shoes to earn a living. Though he had a Masters Degree, but it seemed his "poverty degree" was more potent than his Masters Degree. Situations became tougher; shoe polishing could no longer polish his pot, so he moved to truck pushing. He hauled goods for market women from one place to another. That way, he was able to push on his family's basic needs. After a while, he had a breakthrough; he got a job as a security man in a bank. And the pay was enough to add meat to their pot of soup.
It did not end there! He knew that according to Proverbs 4:18, things can only get better for a believer. So he kept believing God for a change. Not long after, the bank opened a vacancy for the post of a chief accountant, which was what he studied. He was on duty that day, so he quickly changed from his security outfit into a more suitable cloth. He got the job! Faith is not an excuse for laziness. He had faith, but also committed himself to hard work.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; FAITH DOES NOT WAIT FOR GOD TO ACT, FAITH ACTS WHILE GOD WORKS. IT IS FAITH ACTS PLUS GOD'S WORK THAT BRINGS TESTIMONIES. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
