Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory for what does not profit” – Jeremiah 2:11


There are so many situations in life that keep us permanently stagnant on one spot in both material and spiritual wealth. Consequently, we experience a downward trend when we try to remain on a bad job, a way of life or a set of beliefs. When we adhere to a wrong status, we suffer a lot of troubles, leading to loss of jobs, lack of recognition, or even rejection.

There is one thing that is very true in life, and that is the fact that no condition is permanent, and the only constant thing in life is change. That is so because life is on the move; like the philosophers would say, life and nature are constantly becoming or undergoing a state of evolution. Therefore, everyone has an opportunity to experience growth after a decline or to move out of trouble areas completely. Very often, the shift that we expect comes from our minds or psyche and our readiness to leap in Faith across the bridge, to the other side of life where we can begin to access the beautiful things of life. 

Again, many are affected by a wrong attitude to life and can neither keep a job nor sustain one. Some do not understand what is called mutual respect or courtesy. That is because every adverse action on our part has a corresponding negative experience, which is bound to catch up with us someday. The word of God is telling us today to change our wrong values and negative mindset to behold a new horizon.

So, our attitude or wrong choices are majorly responsible for the troubles we experience in life. To go above these troubles is to focus and believe in a new life flourishing with supernatural abundance. To move on, we have to drop our old selves, and wear a new cloak of patience, and lean on the staff of Faith.  


Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I trust in your power to lead me out of every chasm of confusion, hopelessness, faithlessness and wrong values presently inhibiting the fulfilment of your purpose and plan for me. Therefore, I declare your power now works in my life, following thy will. Lord, Like Joshua, I shall henceforth succeed in the most important activities of my life. AMEN.
