Sometimes in our lives we find it very hard to come to reality. Sometimes you have to accept things the way they are and move on. Why most people are underachievers is because they tend to rely solely on certain people they think or believe should be a helping hand.
Yes, I know that your parents, family, trusted friends, colleagues or mates should be of help to you in one way or the other because they have a responsibility to do so. However, it is not mandatory, and when they decline due to circumstances beyond their control you don’t seem to get it.
What I am driving at, is that, it is not a must that your dad will train you in school. It is not a must that your uncle should help you. It is not a must that the person your parents helped in the past should help you in the present time. It is not a must that your mother will take care of you. It is not a must that your wife or husband must listen to everything you say. It is not a must that the government should create jobs. It is not a must that the senator you voted into office should do all he said in his manifesto. It is not a must the governor should proffer solution to the poverty rate in your state. It is not a must that everybody you meet will give you a listening ear. It is not even a must that you will get a job even if your father is the head of a recruitment agency. That’s the truth.
Yet, in all these things, a must-factor so sure was Christ’s death. God made it a must for you to obtain mercy even when you have not been born. God issued a letter of grace before you began to make mistakes. He saw the end from the beginning and decided to create a platform to remove your past and make your present perfect by His grace.
He knew your parents could disappoint you. He knew the economy of your country could be harsh. He foresaw the problems that lie in wait for you. He imagined the weight of depression and rejection you might experience. He found your weaknesses before you discovered them. He decided to bring solution before the problem shows up. Ephesians 2:10 says,
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”.
God told His Son Jesus, “ My Son it is a MUST you die to redeem my people “.
And today I believe that was the only must that was ever real.
