Take a look at the true stories of the great men below: When Einstein was inducted as an American, he attended the ceremony without socks. Charles Dickens never finished his schooling. He was also an insomniac (he had sleep problems).
He believed his best chance of sleeping was in the center of a bed facing directly north. Can you imagine that? Just like I borrowed money – 25,000 Naira (about 120 dollars) to start this ODM vision about 25 years ago, George Washington had to borrow money to go to his inauguration as president of the USA.
Indeed, the only strength you can boast of is the strength of the Ancient of Days. Without God, your life is empty and dry. Any success outside your God and your HOUR OF GRACE is a success without a story! When Isaiah saw the glory of God, he cried out: “WOE IS ME!
for I am undone ; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts” (Isaiah 6: 5). This same Isaiah actually thought he had arrived (DONE! MADE UP! COMPLETED). But after seeing the LORD, he cried out aloud in the above scripture: “I AM UNDONE,” “I AM INCOMPLETE” (see the underlined and bold words above).
Oh, when God reveals the mystery of human weakness to you, you will decide to hide yourself under the banner of His grace until your personal weaknesses are taken away BY HIS COAL OF FIRE and the strength of God is EXCHANGED for your insufficiency (Isaiah 6: 6). Seek His face and spend time in His presence in order to exchange your weakness for His strength.
I CALL THIS THE daily “GREAT EXCHANGE.” GREAT because unlike the daily exchange of oxygen for carbon dioxide by you, this kind of exchange between you and your God, is the actual birthing of the NEW YOU in the bedroom of divine romance via disciplined stay in the presence of God.
Laziness in spending time with God is a divine poison that provokes the DIVORCE of your marriage to your everlasting Husband – Jehovah God. In this EXCHANGE, your weakness will be replaced by His strength. Your lack will collapse and God’s supply will take over.
According to today’s 1st Word, the mighty man, the man of war, the prudent, the sage, the counselor, the orator and the honorable are all worthless without divine strength (Isaiah 3:1-3). Spend MORE TIME BY FORCE in God’s presence to receive the strength/resources that only God can supply.
