Topic: YOU CAN NOT DO IT ALONE
Biblical Text: ‘I have planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase’ . [1 Corinthians 3:6]
I recently came up with an analogy. In the football world, one of the highest paid footballer in the world is Christiano Ronaldo. He earns an average of 30 million euros per year meaning he earns about 576,923 euros in a week. When you convert that to Naira, he earns a whopping 300 million naira per week. The combined wages of footballers playing in the Nigerian Premier league is not up to 264 million naira per week. But do you think Christiano Ronaldo with all his skills can win against 22 players in the Nigerian Premier League if the players were selected to play against him alone? Your answer is as good as mine: Christiano Ronaldo with all his skills does not stand a chance to win. Though, he earns so much, he cannot do it alone. Look at an interesting story of Moses; he told Joshua to choose men to go and fight the Amalekites. He said as long as his hands were up, they would be victorious. So they left to fight the Amalekites and true to Moses words, as long as his hands were up, they smote the Amalekites but soon he got tired; his hands were heavy and he put down his hands, then the Amalekites prevailed. Thank God for Aaron and Hur who lifted up his hands to ensure Joshua discomfited the Amalekites. Do not see yourself as an Island that can do it alone; you must never be too proud to think it is only you God needs to achieve an assignment. You need people to support and encourage you all the way. Respect and value others.
KNOW IT ∞ God will bring people your way to achieve the vision He has put in you. You cannot do it alone.
