It’s Never Too Late With God! Your Best Days Are Still Ahead!

The story of “Laurre the Elliot” who bagged a master’s degree at the age of 90, says a lot about the fact that – where there is a will, there will always be a way – no matter the trials or pains! “Laurre the Elliot” is a proof to many that it’s never too late to fulfil your dreams. She said it was that nagging, “unfilled desire“, that prevented her from never giving up. If you want to do something badly enough – then you will be able to do it. Later on, she welcomed her status as role model and hopes to encourage other elderly people to pursue their long-held aspirations. “I hope I can inspire some of these people to continue their education”, she told WFAA. “That’s my goal”. Madam Elliot who hails from Portsmouth, England, spent 15 months at the University of Sussex for her master’s degree in Russian and Eastern European Studies. She also spent a year at the University of Portsmouth as part of her first degree in Russian Studies. She later planned to get her Ph.D. God can still help you accomplish whatever you desire in your life, and destiny.

One day with God is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are as one day. Spiritually, a Gregorian calendar doesn’t exist. An invincible determination can achieve almost anything, and in this – lies the distinction between great men and common men. In the Bible, we see how God overturned the captivity of Job at his old age. Zechariah and Elizabeth had one of the greatest miracles because they decided to wait on God, despite their old age. If you and your family would do the same, you would be put place of honour in your generation. I remembered several years ago when the wife of a pastor committed suicide by hanging herself at their residence. She hanged herself while the husband was attending a night vigil because since they married, they had no child, and she suspected that the husband was falling into temptation, and having sex and children outside their marriage. Is there anything that God cannot do? If the husband was having an extramarital affair, couldn’t God have intervened?

We must never judge the dead, but if the problem was due to lack of having a child and she was growing older, is the God of Zechariah, Abraham, Sarah and Job dead? No! Your case is no different! It’s never too late! And it’s time to say that – repeatedly – to all forms of negativity staring at you. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporal problem. Note that age is not a barrier to achieving God’s plans for your life! Many people are always blaming circumstances for the cause of where they are in life: however, the people who get along in this world are those who get up and look for the circumstance they want, and if they can’t favourable circumstances, they create them. Reject all forms of regrets! Look unto God. It is never too late with God! Your best days are still ahead!

True Prosperity Depends on How Well You are Connected With God

Any human being who is genuinely connected with God (the creator of all things), would have ultimate peace and true prosperity. God is spirit! We can’t see him! In fact, his invisibility makes many people feel like he doesn’t exist. But he’s there! Right out there! He’s connected with men and women who also play (or played) their own little part in maintaining that strong connection. Through the ages, God has been close to quite a number of people, too many for us to recall from history; but one important thing to take note of – is that – irrespective of any challenges encountered, irrespective of any attempt(s) that enemies put up against those connected with God, they conquer at the end of the day. Another remarkable quality that people of God have, is that genuine feeling of rest, peace, and sense of fulfillment – which they can’t have otherwise. Their foundation doesn’t rest on material things: on the material aspect of creation. Anything that has a foundation outside of God is just temporal vanity, and would pass away or cease to exist from a particular date in the near future. Whatever anyone has, no matter how small it may appear in the eyes of other people, it would always be sufficient to accomplish every plan that God has called or destined for that person to carry out in this world.

Everything that God gave everyone at birth, and while they are alive, is a seed which has to be sown, fertilized, continuously catered for, and groomed to maturity. We must prosper if we have the mind-set that – with what we were given – we can efficiently accomplish God’s purpose for our lives. Plant your seed and it must produce a bountiful harvest, good or bad. True prosperity and abundance are beyond the acquisition of material possessions: it isn’t defined by the number of cars, industries, houses, lands, assets, women, or property that anyone has; otherwise those who have the largest amount of material possessions in the world, would always be the most happy, joyful and fulfilled people. Unfortunately, most materially successful personalities haven’t been so happy, neither have they felt inwardly fulfilled in their lives.

Read through history and you will observe that a lot of popular people, with an abundance of “earthly possessions,” have had high blood pressures, gone nuts, or even committed extreme acts like suicide! Many of them have been dependent on drugs in order to try and control their minds and feelings. These few descriptions show that man cannot depend solely on what he externally possesses – if he wants to have real joy and livelihood! Many people who have/had great possessions, were really empty on the inside; if not they wouldn’t resort to empty remedies like drugs and suicide. The treasures of this world all have their expiry dates. And really, not all that glitters is gold. There are many men and women who have been frustrated in life because they measured themselves by the world’s symbols of prosperity. In all your prosperity, or lack of it, let your total dependence be on God, then you’ll have everlasting treasures that no amount of money can buy.
