Never make little plans…

“Never make little plans” were the words Anita said to me on November 25, 2009 when I shared with her what I believed God instructed me to do and that is to develop a second campus for the Eduplex. She quoted Daniel Burnham, the architect that designed Chicago after the big fire and whose words she read a mere 3 weeks before in the Chicago library.

He said “Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence. Remember that our sons and our grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty.”

Go forward bravely and unafraid…

I often catch myself wanting to peep into the future. I wonder what will happen if…and yet, that craving of what the future will hold is as old as mankind itself. Leviticus 19:21 is very clear about seeking to want to know the future: “Do not turn to mediums or seek our spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”

Why then do I want to know the future? Is it to relieve the pressure or will it help me to change direction once I know what the future holds? Surely FAITH is too precious a treasure to trade for KNOWLEDGE?

When God gives me a task to fulfill or a vision to embark on, He then unrolls it like a scroll, little by little, step by step. First, the small steps, and as the scroll unfolds the steps, the tasks get bigger and bigger, according to my obedience. And then, then we see wonder upon wonder unfold…and we will be amazed.

Walking in fear or walking in faith?

As we move towards year’s end, I tend to reflect on the time past. A year ago fear and doubt lurked in my heart about 2013. How was I to finish the high school? Where was I to get the money to complete what God has started? Why was I doubting God’s promise given to me in Isaiah 45:1-3 that He will open doors, level the mountains, break down the city gates and give me the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places?

Why was I trying to predict the outcomes when Jesus wants us to leave the outcomes to Him? He should be our guide while we enjoy life in His presence and keep our focus on Him. And yet, I kept on looking to my troubles, and doubt and fear and anger set in as I forgot the promise God gave me 15 years ago in Zechariah 4:6, the one verse that weaves like a golden thread through my life, our school and company “…Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty – you will succeed because of My Spirit, though you are few and weak.”

We Each Have a Story

We each have our own life and our own story. It is up to us to make it a good story or a sad one. Making the right choices is part of a good story and often we have to rectify the bad ones, if we can.

I often have to ask myself whether I trust in God or in my own ability. If I trust in myself more than in God, I will be disappointed, often walking in fear and anger as things don’t go “my way.” If I trust in God, He will reward me with divine guidance, wisdom, love, peace and above all, GRACE.

Look and persevere

I know very few dedicated Christians who do not go through trials and tribulation in their life. Every time I start losing my perspective and start sliding into self-pity, worry, anger, fear and unbelief, the Holy Spirit reminds me that “unto them that look for Him shall He appear…” (Heb 9:28).

All I need to do is ‘look’ … and in looking I automatically turn my eyes away from my own trials and tribulation. And as I look to the Lord I try and keep up my spirit, expecting a great deliverance, ready to praise God for it. (Ps. 27:14 and Spurgeon’s Cheque Book of Faith Sep 06). “You can never please God without faith, without depending on Him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and the He rewards those who sincerely look for Him”. (Heb. 11:6)
