HOW TO MAKE YOUR JOURNEY LONGER (The blessing of Men)
I was heading for a meeting in Lagos. My cab broke down somewhere in Ogun State. Once we saw it may take a while, I put calls through to three people in the area. Two of them came around and stood by us.
One of them volunteered to get me to the next stop where I could pick another cab. Surprisingly, someone else had already called the cab and paid some of the bills already. That day, I knew that men are gifts indeed. I have known both men for at least 9 years.
One of the ways to prolong your journey in life and destiny is developing the habit of taking men for granted. There is no pride in saying, “I need no one”.
There are men who broke down on the journey of life and are still down because they lacked relationships that can restore them.
Take a look at those who thrive in ministry or career, you will observe that some of them have sustained relationships of 30 years or even more. One of the signs that a man can be trusted is that he has lasting relationships with others- it shows loyalty and trust.
Take a look at Luke 6:38:
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
Luke 6:38 KJV
God will use the men in your life to fill your bosom. Therein lies wealth, warmth and wonders of life.
Some men will come into your life and not look like what you prayed for. David had social misfits all around him. But they were so willing to help David in the wilderness season and get him to the throne.
If you steward your relationship with men properly, your journey becomes better. Do not take your parents for granted. Do not take your pastors for granted. Do not take your peers for granted.
Keep in touch with them.
Do not let your busy schedule steal the gift of men around you. Do not look back and realise that you focused so much on goals that you lost your God-given relationships.
Men are gifts. Treat them well and your journey is faster.
