The right stage for a believer is as follow:
- don’t try to make it happen ;
Don’t chase dreams but chase the God who gave you the dreams and he will make your dreams come true in the right time. Genesis 16:11 ” Yahweh’s angel said to her, behold, you are with child, and will bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because Yahweh has heard your affliction”. This is a singular refreshing story relating to the birth of Ishmael, the first not anointed, self-made ABRAHAM’s child, at his own time. Manipulating situations may get you somewhere more quickly, but it won’t keep you there long. Remember with seriousness, whatever you do to get somewhere, you’ll have to keep doing it to stay there. You will never have to force anything that’s meant to be. Don’t promote and exalt yourself as you wish. That’s God’s job. Ecclesiastes 3:11” He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has set eternity in their hearts, yet so that man can’t find out the work that God has done from the beginning even to the end”.
Don’t look to man to make it happen;
What man gives you, man can take it away at any time. If you look to man to make it happen for you, you’ll be tempted to compromise. Often time, the compromise is based on the tiny details from our ignorance. You’ll be expected to do things God may not have called you to do. Jeremiah 17:5-6 ” Yahweh says: cursed is the man who trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm and whose heart departs from Yahweh. He shall be like the desert, and shall not see when good comes…”
