TOPIC: THEY WERE NOT ANGELS
Many a times, we read and hear of great personalities that have made a difference in their generation. But the Holy Ghost is reminding you of these men AGAIN! We often see them as larger than life portraits or as supermen. We read of the prophets and patriarchs and we stand as dwarfs!
We read of Joseph, Moses, Abel, David, Samuel, Deborah, Gideon, Jephthah, Girolamo, Savonarola, Florence Nightingale, William Tyndale, John Wesley, Oral Roberts, Smith Wigglesworth, David Youngi Cho, Kathryn Kulman, Aimee Macpherson, Martin Luther, Archbishop Idahosa, Billy Graham, Nelson Mandela, Chief Awolowo, NnamdiAzikiwe, SirAmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, Nkwame Nkruma, Chief M. K. O. Abiola, Julius Caesar, Plato, Napoleon, Charles Dickens, Edison, Faraday, Beethoven, Handel, etc, and lots more and we gasp for breath! Let’s pause a while and draw examples from these men:
They were like us and not angels; they fought the same battles we are fighting daily! They faced the same giants we are facing, but they were determined never to quit. They were hungry, often got tired, sometimes grew discouraged, fell sick, depressed, married, had children, faced rejection, some divorced, went through financial trials and even temporary failures. Thomas Edison, who discovered the electric bulb, was deaf and he was a newspaper vendor on trains. Charles Dickens was lame! Plato had a hunched back.
Billy Graham was disappointed many times before he could find a life partner, and lots more. Collection of the portrait line of the hall of fame of Hebrews 11 shows they were also “men of like passions” like us. If they could make it, then your life and ministry will make it. In this year 2023, when troubles show up, always remember the words of Paul Harvey: “In times like these, it’s always helpful to remember that there have always been times like these.” Never give up on life! You will make it! Hold on! Hold out! You can now order for ODM SOFT COPY on-line.
