In this life, 1+2 may not necessarily equal 3, just as a good academic qualification and a professional skill may not guarantee a good job. Welcome to a world where Masters’ Degree holders bow to a master just to be a bus conductor. The worse part is that they’d even need to go through an interview for it. “Have you been a bus conductor before?”, “No sir, but I have a Masters’ Degree in Business Administration. I’m sure I’d adapt quickly”. It used to be the survival of the fittest; but now, the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happens to them all.
On the other hand, The Holy Spirit plus a weak man can produce a president. I remember the testimony of a man who only had his school-leaving certificate. He chose to live a wayward life and completely stabbed furthering his education. Many years later, he gave his life to Christ, and things changed for him. The Holy Spirit told him to go and apply for a job in a construction company. He obeyed, hoping that they’d at least employ him as a cleaner. Miraculously, the white man who interviewed him said he was too qualified to be in such a position and made him the supervisor over the engineering team. Just as he was about to reject the offer, The Holy Spirit told him to take it. Few months after he joined, he started an engineering course in the university. Today, he has a family, and a Masters’ Degree in Engineering.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; DON’T LIMIT YOUR LIFE TO THE WORLD’S WAY OF GETTING THINGS DONE. DO YOUR BEST, BUT RELY ON THE HOLY SPIRIT TO GIVE YOU THE BEST. YOUR BEST MAY NOT BE THE BEST. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
