There are many among us who are pessimistic about the future. They do not see any light at the end of the tunnel. Such people are losers.
The winners believe in victory which is coming. To them victory is inevitable. They have reason. God, our creator assures us that he will give us victory. Read Deuteronomy 20:1-4k
“When you go out to fight against your enemies and you see chariots and horses and an army that outnumbers yours, do not be afraid of them….Do not be afraid of your enemies, or loose courage, or panic. The LORD your God is going with you, and he will give you victory.”
“…the Lord says you must not be discouraged or be afraid to face this large army. The battle depends on God not you” 2 Chronicles 20:15.
Many times in the New Testament, we are assured God will give us victory. He will make us triumph.
Today, I am discarding two words from my vocabulary.
I take courage from Jesus’ assurance in Luke 18:27 and the other synoptic gospels. He assures: “What is humanly impossible is possible for God.”
Yes, with God, everything is possible.
Thus, I will discard two words, and at the same time, I will print in my mind two words that have the power to give victory in accordance with the assurance from the creator of all things.
The first word to discard is impossible. The second is can’t. Never say something is impossible for you to do or achieve.
Every dream that God has put in your mind is possible.
Never say “I can’t”. Of course, you can.
You can do whatever you want to do. You can live the life you want to live. You can win that battle. You can win that war. You can win that struggle.
God has given you what it takes to do what you want to do or achieve. It is left to you to exploit that potential buried in you to do whatever you want to do.
Today, therefore, inscribe in your vocabulary in indelible ink the words “possible’ and “I can”.
Your dream is possible. The life you want to live is possible. The things you want to achieve are possible. You can achieve them. With the help of God, you will achieve your fondest dream.
What holds true for you as an individual, holds true for any group of people, any community, and any country.
We can achieve our common dream as a people. It may look impossible, but nothing is impossible to people who are determined; or to a country of determined, decisive and focused people.
Do not look at the challenges ahead of you and let them intimidate or discourage you. Always remember that you no longer have “impossible” and “I can’t” in your vocabulary but “possible” and “I can”.
Yes, it is possible. Yes, we can. Yes, we will. If you are scared, fight on. If you see no sign at the end of the tunnel, struggle on; if you are loosing, struggle on. God will reverse your fortunes. You will emerge triumphant.
