Last year December (2022), I was at a conference out of town when the Lord gave me instruction to go and raise strong, stable, and stretching disciples. I knew instantly what the Lord was saying (Revelation from God is always a complete communication of His will. When He showed Moses the branch of the tree at the bitter stream, Moses knew what to do with it). 

I knew the Lord was asking me to begin a work that converts the numbers to disciples. We already had all sorts of questions about life, the Christian journey, and all from different persons.

We did not have all the gadgets necessary to do it at the level we desired. We shot with a phone and gave our all. I told the team, we would give our best with the little we have. Yes, that was what we did. After three weeks of intense writing during the day and shooting all night, I cried like a baby. 

For some weeks now, we have had class from all over Nigeria and other countries in Africa including Kenya, Ghana, Namibia, Egypt, South Africa, and quite some others. We have Lebanon, Qatar, Portugal, the U.K., and U.S.A., Canada, and others. What about the testimonies we have seen in training? My God! They are mind-blowing. 

Listen! The world is moving while you are waiting for the perfect condition. What can you do excellently with the resources you have now? You will be surprised that you do not need the Armor of Saul to bring down Goliath. There is a sling, a stone, a shepherd’s pouch, and a heart to do it all for God.

Excellence is not perfection. It is the desire to keep giving your best with what you have at the moment. Stop giving excuses. I know those who have not started because they are waiting for the ideal condition.

There is always an entry point into that huge vision that God gave you. It could even be as simple as serving someone who is already running with a similar vision. It could be as simple as enrolling in a course that will sharpen you. But folding your hands while you wait for the perfect condition is not faith, it is called the “labour of fools” 

The labor of fools wearies them, For they do not even know how to go to the city!

Ecclesiastes 10:15 NKJV

Instead of complaining that you do not know what to do, go and serve someone who is already doing it. That is the cure to labouring foolishly. 

Did you notice the irony of foolishness? There is still some form of labour but it is called wearying labour. There is always an entry point into what the Lord has shown you. Find it. Plug in. Stop giving excuses. Break the box today.
