A NEW DAWN VII

Information or Deformation?

Confusion stood at the other end of the river for a long while, waiting for a boat that never existed.

No one knew he was waiting for a boat, we thought he was waiting for someone at the other end, until he asked someone after a long time of waiting.

Little did he know that, there was a bridge a few steps from where he was standing to cross to the other side.

Most times we postpone the breaking of our dawn because we shut our ears to information and close our eyes to the unending options that lies around them.

There are opportunities everywhere, but you’ll keep kicking your balls behind the net if you’re not informed about where the goal post is properly positioned.

Information expands our minds, but a narrow and shallow mind can only explore the little it can take.

Access to information about channels that can be harnessed to maximize our potential will facilitate the breaking of our dawn.

We all have what it takes for our dawn to break, but we need information to open our eyes to possibilities that we can explore.

Sometimes we ignore the little that someone is building a city with, but fix our eyes on the products of handicapped and confused minds, until we begin to replicate its similitude.

The value of information is that you get valuable information. Information is so powerful that it can open our mind to varieties of solutions that will end our confusion and frustration.

Something might be new and unknown to you, but that does not mean it is new. Information will give you access to those who have threaded similar paths and the clues you need to get to your destination.

Information is everywhere, but it will not come to you where you’re seated; go for it, sought for it and pay for it. No matter how much it cost, it will never be more expensive than the coat of deformation that lack of information will sew for you.

Get informed, stay informed, there is an information that will usher in the breaking of your dawn.

A NEW DAWN VI

What Do I Need?

Knowledge and Exposure

Someone once said, ‘if you know better, you will do better.’ The true evidence of knowing is doing.

Knowledge will expose you to what others are not seeing, and expose the true form of what seems good.

The more you know, the more you want to go for the reality of what you know. The more you contact what you know in reality, the more you become exposed to realities and possibilities.

The world is on the move and everything is changing at every tick tock. If you do not keep a constant interaction with the outside world and technological advancements, you’ll be dazed at how far you’ll find yourself behind others.

Many things have been found that many are still searching for. Several problems has been solved, that many are still battling with. Life is filled with hidden holes, but there are many that knowledge will expose you to and show you the way out.

If you fail to learn, you will learn by failure.

Training

Training and retraining is a major key that helps to facilitate the breaking of a man’s dawn.

There are trainings we enroll for and pay for, and others that we don’t enroll for, that life enrolls us for.

It might seems hard on us, but unknown to us, our hands are getting trained and this sets us on course to handle certain things that will catapult us to our next level.

It’s not too expensive to go for, if it will sharpen your hands. As harsh as life’s training school might be, don’t run away and don’t fail to learn from her.

An Optimistic Approach

Many people hate bumps on the road, not knowing that it is the bumps that will help them to slow down and see the road better.

You must keep your heart lighted up even if everything seems gloomy.

You cannot move slowly and expect your dawn to break when it is dawn, you will automatically slow down the breaking of your dawn. You need to be optimistic to get all the energy you need to get there.

Moving at a normal pace might be difficult when things are not falling in place as expected. It might become more difficult when your reward does not commensurate with your efforts, but you must remain optimistic in such seasons.

Choose to see what you want to see irrespective of what you are seeing in the present.

The Eyes of Faith

Open your eyes and heart to possibilities.

You must see beyond the physical to the supernatural. Its not enough that you believe it can happen, rather, see it happening.

Irrespective of what you face, how you see it determines what it will become. Don’t fail to face your challenges and fix your problems, never let anyone deceive you that it is too big. See through the eyes of faith.

Prayers can cause the dawn to break, prophecies can seal the breaking of your dawn, but only your move of faith will usher you into the new dawn.

A NEW DAWN V

Be Different

To every eyes that longs to behold the breaking of the dawn, he must see things differently, do things differently, and be different.

Nothing will singularize you from the crowd if you do nothing different from the crowd.

The supersonic way for the dawn to break is to sought for a thing you can die for and do things as if you are willing to die for them.

When you’re doing what you don’t like, you will not be set astir to learn what you should know to be effective in what you are doing. Soon, frustration will catch up with you.

How do you expect the dawn to break in what you’re doing with frustration? It’s better to figure out what you can do with true grit, because it is not everything you can be effective in.

Commitment to a simple task can attract a more demanding and rewarding task. When you learn to do a run-of-the-mill thing, in an unusual way, though you might get little or no result at first, sooner than you think, it will usher you into the breaking of your dawn.

People do things for material rewards, but see things differently. I know you need those things too, but do things for more than the acquisition of things.

Start something to touch lives, to lift hands, to put a smile on someone’s face, to help someone see the pit ahead of their path, and not the usual reason: for me, what is mine and those that are mine.

What you do matters, but how you do what you do matters in the breaking of your dawn.

Greatness lies in little things, but only few who can do great things for seemingly minute reward, will eventually be kissed by mind-blowing rewards.

Do it differently, do it tenaciously and do it with all your heart.

Be different, see things differently, do things differently, and expect unusual results.

A NEW DAWN IV

Stop them before they Stop you

Who wouldn’t have rolled out a red carpet for him, with his regal appearance and charming smile. But, little did she know that he only appeared to be so. She had already given him a chair and prepared a befitting room for him in her house when she realized he was an unwanted visitor.

I wouldn’t say it was too late before she realized, but he had stolen and destroyed, only that he had not killed.

There are three things the devil knows how best to do: steal, destroy and kill.

Before he became much-publicized, he would appear in his true form, but now that no one wants to see his ugly face, he simply wear the angelic habiliment and do what he does best.

You must have heard about him, but let no one open a false chapter and verse to you about him, and plant the seed of fear into your heart.

It is true that the devil and wicked men can push one’s dawn forward, but it is also true that you can kick their ass and get them off your path.

There are two things the devil wants to avoid that makes him want to stop your dawn:

He is scared that if your dawn breaks, you will see God as the good God and keep going to Him until your heart is fully drawn to Him.

He is also scared that there will be available resources to give expression to your visions, which will eventually bring alive the god in you.

No wonder he desperately seeks channels to ensure that man’s dawn does not break. But we must know that no matter how much he tries, if God does not permit him and he does not find a channel to enter through, he can do nothing.

Yet, men who cannot stand the breaking of the dawn of others would do anything to stop others and others ride on others to rise without thinking twice.

Either the devil or his seeds, nothing, and I mean nothing can withstand the power of God activated through fervent prayers. Pray and flee from sin, and no power of darkness will stop you.

Anytime you want a cheap and easy way to have things that are not cheap, you are exposing yourself to their wickedness. Pay the price for the prize you want, if you don’t want a deadly prize. Let what God will never give you or approve never be your desire.

Be receptive to the counsel of elders whose tongue dish out wisdom, they can help you escape several traps of the enemies.

Where are you rushing to? Don‘t you know haste makes waste. Don’t waste your life and destiny to haste. He has never begat any good seed.

Be wise to the tricks of the devil and his seeds. Give him no room. Always be sure you keep a broom close, to constantly sweep out the dirt he can penetrate into your life through.

By the blood of the LAMB, you are liberated from every works of darkness in the name of JESUS!

A NEW DAWN III

Two Must Win Battles

Our hands are most times eager for a dogfight with enemies, as our hearts love to quickly conclude that someone is the reason we long await our dawn.

But, there are things that are more potent than any enemy we must fight and win.

Self

Until you win the battle against self, you might stick to a point.

Self loves comfort, but you cannot kiss comfort and welcome the new dawn. You must choose one. Though the new dawn will eventually bring comfort, but before the dawn breaks, you will need to leave your comfort zone.

Sleep is good, but you can’t court sleep and expect your dawn to break.

If you sleep when you feel like sleeping, talk when you feel like talking, eat when you feel like eating and you keep doing everything you feel like doing, your own self is already becoming an encumbrance in your way.

No success story is devoid of discipline, yet self dislike discipline. You either tame it, or it stops the breaking of your dawn.

See to it, that your body does what you need to do, to see what you want to see.

What You Must Leave

Some things are so glued to us and we are so used to some things that we feel, leaving them will kill us. It is absolutely untrue.

Whatever makes you feel so comfortable that you forget where you ought to be, will only stop you from progressing, leave it!

Whatever bad habit that is glued to you, detach yourself from it fast. It might be hard and it might take time. In fact, there are some addictions you might need to speak to a trusted heart about, go for a rehab and pray about, please do.

Whatever company or relationship that has kept you at a point, irrespective of the time, resources and sacrifices that has gone into it, leave!

Fight it, discipline yourself and liberate yourself. Be a slave to nothing and no one!

A NEW DAWN II

Misconceptions about the New Dawn

The usual peacock-like appearance of the new dawn has made several people miss the breaking of their dawn when it does not appear as such.

A relationship, job, connection, word, and it’s similitude can mark the breaking of your dawn.

Yet, there are opportunities and doors that opens to you like the breaking of a new dawn, that is not.

What you think is a dawn, might be what will make God say, ‘I am done with you.’

Sometimes we believe there are certain locations, that the dawn cannot break in. The dawn breaks everywhere. It is not about a location, it’s about you. It’s about how you rightly position yourself in the location that is suitable for your allocation.

If you’re doing what you should do in the place that is not suitable for what you are doing, you might get a soupcon or zero result.

Yet, if you are in the right location, but you are not doing what the dawn can break in, the new dawn might only remain a dream for you.

It’s not a career, certificate or background that determines the breaking of the dawn, it’s about who is doing what.

A six digits job might buy you comfort, but not all six digits jobs mean the breaking of a new dawn. It can as well be a pit in disguise.

That it seems good and new does not mean it is the new dawn. It is not the dawn until it marks the beginning of a transition to breakthrough, accompanied with rest.
