Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Heb.13:8 KJV)

In the first chapter of the international classic, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells a story of a man named R.U Darby who travelled to Colorado with his uncle to prospect for gold.  Sadly, they gave up on their dream of prospecting the biggest goldmine in history, which would have made them super rich, a mere three feet before a major gold vein was hit.

Many of us have aborted our dreams, abandoned our visions, callings, careers or worse still, failed in our faith either midstream or when our salvation or breakthrough was imminent. Most times, we want the easy way out or we’re not patient to go through the process or worse still, ignorant of what to do.

I remember abandoning a professional certification I planned getting just because I felt it was very quantitative and was going to require some rigorous studies and practice. Although, I didn’t need the certification thereafter, because of my career shift.

Howbeit, I learned my lessons that in my MBA class, I refused to give up as my colleagues who were specializing in finance with me were dropping off because of its quantitative nature. I stayed on with just a handful of us. To the glory of God, I became the shining star in our finance class and also made my highest mark in international finance even with my background in law.

We’re faced with very challenging situations everyday in our walk with God, career or relationships. We feel discouraged, despondent, listless, hopeless, helpless or hapless. We feel giving up is the best solution and the only option. We feel we cannot continue. It’s rather a defeatist strategy when there’s no better alternative.

Feeling can lie to you. It’s safer to walk by faith. Faith empowers continuity! Jesus our Perfect Example was a Man of faith; which in turn empowered His consistency. His consistency in faith, essence, character, thought and vision empowered him to continue to the end. Although, He suffered all manner of contradictions, He stayed focused till He completed His assignment on the earth.

The good news is that you and I can become consistent as  Jesus Christ, if and only if we believe Him and receive His Spirit of Grace. The Spirit of Grace empowers us to live the life of Christ.

After we must have received the Spirit of Grace, we need to walk with Him to enable us take the following covenant steps that will aid our continuity.

1. Discover Purpose.

Until purposes are discovered and nurtured, visions are disappointed.

2. Embrace Wisdom and Understanding. Wisdom is a stabilizer and understanding gives you the details of your assignment and the standard operating procedure.

3. Be Committed to Your Cause Not Just Being Interested.

4. Always Ask for the Help of God and Be Conscious that He’s Always there to Help You. Talent, genius or education may fail but God cannot!

5. Cultivate and Harvest The Spirit of Joy.

Joy is the bridge between the negative past and the positive future.

Hear this: Only those that refuse to give up and continue are enthroned. In your faith, business, career or relationship, I counsel you to give it all it takes.

Jesus said, “Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me.” (Luke 22:28-29)

To your continuity,

✝️Tochukwu Kemakolam

Prime Minister
