My mum had to resign from her work as a lecturer because her sight condition worsened. It was not an easy option for a family that relied on the salary of two to depend on that of one person.

At that same time, my dad started a church as led by the Lord. Mum manned the church office. Two mothers in the church would drop their babies with mum. She would do all she could to watch over the children.

There was a funny episode when she was changing the diapers of one of the babies. The other baby carried away the diaper. Getting it back became a struggle for a woman battling sight conditions. She was resilient.

That daycare service in care and love has become a school with quite some staff and properties. She had always loved children. Till date, despite her sight issues, she oversees the entire operations of the school. She even ventured into writing books for children recently. What a drive.

Beloved, one thing you should trust the Lord for is an entry point into that grand vision that you have received. No matter how big a house is, there is always a door into it.

Abraham had a great vision from the Lord – God would make a great nation out of him. His name would be great, and he will be a blessing.

There was a simple instruction that God gave Father Abram after Lot was separated from him: Lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are.

Look from the place where you are. Where you are right now is a great starting point. There is an entry point into that great vision. God will never leave us without a witness.

For mum, to birth a school, God brought her way two babies. They became more than two and she had to employ a nanny. When the children became school age, one of them wrote a letter (obviously through the parents) saying he did not want to leave mum’s care and requesting she starts a school. The rest is history.

A couple wanted to start a restaurant. While praying for resources to start, the Lord told them to look up. Right on their wardrobes were wedding gifts of many years- plates, spoons, and pots. Their eyes opened. They moved their dining table to the rented place. They had foodstuff in their kitchen to start with. They had a cooker. That was their entry point.

Look from the place where you are. Can you see anything? You can not possess a land that you are struggling to see.

I am giving all this land, as far as you can see, to you and your descendants as a permanent possession.

Genesis 13:15 NLT

If you cannot see, there is nothing to possess. Ask the Lord to show you the land. Ask the Lord to bless you with eyes that see. Beloved, there is an entry point.

You can be in front of a door and yet struggle to see it:

And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

Genesis 19:11 KJV

There are times you see the doors, but it comes with adversity. That is why you must be resilient.

For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

1 Corinthians 16:9 KJV

With patience, resilience, and vision, you will find your entry point. Never despise that door. It can look insignificant, but it can be the game changer.

I pray for you this day that you will see that entry point into that great vision. May you not despise it when you see it.

Never forget: Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

Job 8:7 KJV

Enjoy Grace
