“Whatever you receive now, without maintenance, is useless. It is better not to receive something you cannot maintain. It is all about maintenance. It is better not to ask for something you cannot maintain; it is better not to receive something you cannot maintain because it will expose you and put you in the hands of enemies. Without faith, no one can maintain.
If you believe you have achieved something without living right, remember that the beginner is not the owner but the finisher. How do you know that whatever you achieve now, you will be able to maintain it? Without faith, no one can maintain the blessings of God. If you know what it means to be a finisher, you will know what it takes to be a finisher. It takes faith to maintain your position to the end.
The beauty of achievement is when we no longer live and our achievement is still there, continuing to live and linger on in the eyes and ears of the children yet unborn. The children yet unborn want to see things that can influence them to do right. We are not necessarily blessed by God because of today but because of tomorrow.
Your concentration is so much on what you want to achieve. We have so many role models both good and bad in our family and community. Which path are we following? If your name is known today and vanishes tomorrow, what is the value? Don’t be deceived by the little you have.
Are you talking about marriage? If you are thinking of tomorrow, you will not just marry without asking God if this marriage will be able to stand tomorrow. The same applies to your job. Today is ours and tomorrow is God’s. Many marriages stand today but will not be able to stand tomorrow. Many businesses and relationships stand today but will not be able to stand tomorrow.
Faith is maintenance. You maintain your life if you live the life of faith – that is the only way you will be able to maintain your finances and health. You follow Jesus through faith. To follow Him demands faith, employs faith.” – TB Joshua
