Nelson Mandela – An Exemplar Of A Visionary


Mandela is an exemplar of a visionary

The great Nelson Mandela was a man of vision. In the heat of apartheid, the apartheid people dug a hole and put him inside and they were urinating on him. What He saw in the prison should have killed him – though, Mandela’s body was dying but his vision was alive. He said, one day I will become the president of this country.

You can’t have a vision and not package yourself dangerously in order to get there. Joseph was a man of vision. He knew that Potiphar house was only a passage, so he package himself dangerously because he knew where he was going. Even in the prison, he was a reigning king in his mind.

A Genuine Vision Will Put You On The Run

The flight of destiny is talking off

Every true vision will always put the visionary on the run. You can’t have vision and be doing nothing in order to get there. When they say your flight, for example, an international flight, is taking off by so so so time; you will do everything in order to meet up, you will leave your food behind.

The flight of destiny is about to take off, are you still loitering around street, jesting everywhere doing nothing to show that you don’t want to miss the flight?

Are you still loitering around while the flight of destiny is taking off

Your Youthful Age Is Only Time-Bound & Your Energy Level Diminishes As You Grow

Your energy level diminish as you grow

There is a time and season for everything, there are some things that you can do now that you won’t be able to do when you become old. For instance, it will be funny enough to see an old man whose age is like 60, for instance, to say that he wants to choose a career in the field Athlete. Time has passed. It has become late.

Most of the people called stars are those that discovered where they belong on time. Timely discovered purpose is the key to your fulfilment in life.

A Wise Man Once Said, The Grave Is Where The Most Talented People Can Be Found

There are many great talents that have died unheard, buried and forgotten in deepest place under the earth. There are many great voices that have been silenced, great messages “un-preached” and many great songs unsung. What talent is yours? Have you ever discovered yourself?. In most cases, God lifts people by there talents. You can study Pharmacology or ‘Chemistrology‘ and ended up becoming a singer. That’s how strange God’s ways are.

I must educate you here, no matter which area of specialization you may find yourself, you’re not inferior to anybody – never see yourself like a grasshopper, perhaps, is the way you perceive yourself that others will perceive you.

There is no profession that is inferior to the other. if you need me, I will also need you. I read Economics, but I landed in the digital world without any experience, producing biblical contents, and setting up professional websites for my clients.

Find time to seek God to show you what your calling is

Find time to seek God to show you where you truly belong. Enter into prayer and fasting so that God will reveal your calling to you. It will become a terrible thing to spend a quantum numbers of years toiling and struggling, battling with one area that is not producing any result. Don’t be afraid to lay off whatsoever is not your calling (and when you have found your place on life don’t give up until your breakthrough arrived).

Explore. Discover. There is a unique gift inside of you that God has deposited there. Don’t die with it. Let it shines to the whole world. The world needs you. You’re a global citizen – you’re not a local champion – God says He will lift you high above all the nations of the earth (Deu.28:2).

There Is Always A Light In The End Of The Tunnel

Vision delayed is not synonymous to vision denied. Every true vision will surely come to pass – as long as the visionary is on the run – even though it tarries, press on. Put your life inline with God. There is no weeping under the sun that is permitted to go beyond a night. Everything that has a beginning will surely come to an end. It’s not going to be like this forever. Trust me. Obey, believe, be faithful.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. -Habakkuk.2:3

    The great Mandela is a sign to the world,am example for all,the leader and the subject alike,he struggled,he fought and he worn, after he got the power he never use it against his enemies that maltreated him, instead he called for reconciletion ,he is a rare one,such people don’t come often,we see the after 100 years.his whole life is dedicated to serve humanity, from the beginning to the rest of his life.

    1. Madiba believes that forgiveness doesn’t makes someone weak but it only proves maturity. That was why he reconciled with his enemies when he got the power. My weekend is going well and you too sir? I will surely extend my greetings to my wife and family. Thanks for reading and commenting. May God bless your heart sir.
