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

It always seem impossible until it Is done

God specializes in creating something out of nothing


Out of nothing he created the universe, God can makes you an amazement and a surprise among your contemporaries. God specializes in creating something out of nothing.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the water. And God said let there be light: and there was light.” Gen.1:2-3.

In most cases God uses our talent and gift to announced us to our world. The course which you study in the university might  be irrelevant to what will use to blessed you. Don’t get it twisted, you can study statistics and become a musician. God master plan always has something to do with our talents.

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto nations.” Jer.1:5

God specializes in creating something out of nothing

Out of nothing he created the heaven and earth, he used the launch of lad to feed multitudes (over 5000 uninvited guests at the riverside), he asked them to bring water when they needed wine, he used a clay to retrieve the sight of a man who has no eyes.

What God will tells you to do might looks very simple, it might looks very stupid and ridiculous. But, that is the answer that you have been waiting for. Our obedience to these seemingly simple and stupid things is the gateway to the release of our answers.

For instance, it might seems very easy and foolish for a barren woman to be told be joyful by singing praises and by dancing. But, that is the antidote for barrenness. “He maketh the barren woman to keep the house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD” PS.113:9

Peter toiled all the night and caught nothing, but his subscription into scriptural instructions provoked the release of a net breaking harvest that Peter one man business became a partnership business (Business expansion guaranteed by obedience).

And Simon answering and said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had his done they inclosed a great multitudes of fishes that their net break.” Lk.5:5-6.

Life is ordinary toiling and struggle outside obedience to scriptural instruction’s factor. “His mother said unto his servants, whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” Jn.2:5. His mother was telling his servants that whatsoever he tells them to do, they should do it, even if it sounds foolishly, or too easy, but they should do it.

For instance, until you loosed your voice on the prayer altar, your voice might never be heard in your world. Your talent might die in you, unheard. Nobody might knows you.

God specializes in creating something out of nothing
In most cases, God uses your talent to bless you.

A wise man once said, the graveyard is the place where the greatest talents can be found. I didn’t argue. There are so many great preachers and other great talents in the grave unheard before the victim gave up the ghost. Plug yourself into the idea of obeying biblical instructions so that God will announce you to the world.

The biggest church auditorium in the entire world emerged from a location where nobody knows about. Thank God for google map, will might not know that Cannan Land exist in Otta. Before Poverty was Bishop Oyedepo’s neighbour, but today he is the richest pastor worldwide.

He was poor when he was preaching about financial prosperity. All those who mocked him then are now joining his ministry after seeing the mighty hand of God at work his ministry.

That Pepper that you are selling now which you think is a small business, God will turn it into a refined pepper producing factory in your hand. That business of that is crawling, God will expand it beyond your imagination. That talent in you which nobody knows about, God will announce you to the entire world.

Serving God turns a nonentity into a celebrity. Peter and other disciples were unlearned people. But, people took notice of them that they had been with Jesus. Peter preached and 3000 souls was won at the spot. Serving God turns an ordinary man into an extraordinary man. I don’t care who you are, I don’t care where you are or the kind of family you came from, I don’t care about your skin colour; from son of nobody, you will be numbered among the world’s Highflyers.

Obey God and believe in him. Trust me, you won’t regret it. I have never regret serving God for once in my life.

*If this post has blessed you, market Jesus by spreading it to your friends, families and others until nobody in our territory is following the devil again.
