Prudence, the cardinal virtue

Life is a marathon;
And not a sprint;
Don’t think
You must emerge victorious
Because you are running
Ahead of the park.
In a long haul,
Wait until you cross
The winning point.
Get the sound
Of the trumpet of victory,
Before jubilation can begin.
It happens countless times, That workers are not eaters;
Someone well ahead
In a race may not be the winner;
Another may come from behind
And reach the winning point first,
And thus carry home
The trophy.
You can win the popular vote;
But lose the white House;
What did Tortoise do
To Hare?
The English caution:
‘Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.’
If that isn’t the voice of wisdom,
Tell me what it is.
Cardinal virtue prudence.
If the saints dont watch out,
They will be thrown out of heaven;
The devil equally likes the place;
And that’s what
He’s fighting to get.
To send God and his angels
and saints to hell,
To have a taste of it.

Today’s daily prayer for your victory 56

Mighty and merciful God,
Ever powerful, living
And loving Father,
Thank you for this day,
Bright and shiny in some parts,
Dark and gloomy in others;
Thank you for the gift of prayer
Through which we are able to connect with you;
I pray for all my brothers and sisters all over the world,
Regardless of race, colour, language, geographical location or social status,
who will read this prayer;
That you bless their day,
O Father;
Fill it with happiness;
I pray that you should never depart from them;
That you accompany them wherever they go today;
Fill them with strength and courage to face the challenges of this day;
Make them strong in their faith in you;
Increase their love for you;
Turn their enemies into friends and supporters;
And the obstacles on their way into steppingstones to the things they want from life;
May those who set out to stand on their way end up opening the door for them;
And may they be warmly welcomed wherever they go;
Inspire them to know what to do today to make it their most successful day so far;
Make all who will read this leaders in their fields, or in their communities;
Make them role models who will inspire others to bring out the best in themselves.
Instill in them courage, self confidence and boldness as they interact with others today.
Generate in them a strong love for prayer,
And always answer their prayers;
Give them victory in all their battles;
We make our prayer through Christ, our Lord, Amen!

That is exact!

I am confident
Because I am never alone;
God is always on my side.

I know I will succeed,
Because, I am never alone,
God is always on my side.

I have no fear
Because, I am never alone;
God is always on my side.

I see victory ahead
Because, I am never alone;
God is always fighting
On my side.

When you are never alone,
When God is on your side,
You have everything.

When you are never alone,
Your victory is inevitable;
Or do I say guaranteed?
That is exact!

Struggle continues

Whether you lose
Or you win,
One fact remains,
Struggle continues;
It doesn’t end
With victory;
It doesn’t end
With failure.
To live
Is to struggle;
It is lifelong;
You have to keep struggling;
Struggle to victory;
Struggle after victory;
Struggle to failure;
Struggle after failure.
Struggle ceases
When life ceases;
Life ceases
When struggle ceases.
As long as you live,
Struggle continues.

When God fights on your side

The greatest secret
Of winning
I know
Is to gett God
On your side.
You will will all your matches
If God is playing on your side;
You will emerge victorious
From all your battles
If God is fighting
On your side.
Get God
Into your team.
Where God is
Victory is.
Fighting without God
Is a waste
Of both time
And energy;
Because you are fighting
Against God;
Spend more time
Winning God to your side
Than fighting by yourself
To win your battles
On your own.
When God fights against you,
you lose;
When God fights on your side
You win.

Picking up signs

Every time you see
Pick-up signs
Staring at you
After you have been
Rolling down the hill,
Give thanks to God
And push on;
Don’t relent
In your effort,
To reach
The point of victory;
Where the golden crown
Glimmers,
Waiting for a brave winner.
If you relent,
You may start
The downward journey again;
Focus always
On the prize;
That is the secret ol
Of the win;
Keep journeying to it;
Till you carry it home.
The more pick up signs
You see,
The better for you.
The journey is never easy;
Stay positve,
Whatever happens;
Let it never leave
Your mind
That no night lasts
For ever.
Night comes, night goes;
Same like
No matter how bright
The day may be,
It cannot last for ever.
The trick is
Always keep hope alive.
And welcome
Every pick up sign.

Praise Precedes Victory

The bible says the weapon of our warfare are not carnal ( physical ) but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4

Praise is one of such weapons because praise brings God down and where God is there’s liberty and victory. Psalm 22:3

2 Chronicles 20 tells us how the Israelites overcame their enemies just by singing and praising God.

The wall of Jericho was brought down through praise and Paul and Silas were freed from the prison through the power of praise.

Do you know that the name Judah in Genesis 37:26-27 means praise ? and guess who suggested that Joseph should be brought out of the pit and sold to the Ishmaelites, instead of killing him. Judah

In case you are going through some challenges or your soul is cast down just like David; know that praise will bring you out and give you a soul lift as you switch over to praise.

There’s power in your praise

There’s joy in your praise

There’s healing in your praise

There’s freedom in your praise

One thing about praising God is that it takes your eyes off the battle, off the challenge and fix it on God who’s the man of war.

As you go about your endeavours, know that the victory is in your praise.


Take care and have a terrific weekend!

Peace,

Danny
