And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ And this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord; He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand. II Kings 3:16-18 NKJV

The accomplishment of your assigned task at any point or stage in your life will not come by your intellectual ability, experience, strength or power. All the above are good and necessary for you to possess.

However, without God’s grace, you will be left stranded and inadequate to achieve lasting success. He alone can give you the required help just at the very moment you least expected.

Your current situation and your personal inability to escape the looming danger and monumental defeat is not enough reason for you to give up. It is not over yet, there is still hope for your future, Jesus can still help you and He will help you if you turn to Him and allow Him to take over completely.

When you come to realize the impotency, the inadequacy and the frailty of the human life and you cry to the Lord Jesus in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge and in whom the fullness of the Godhead dwells in bodily form (Col. 2:3,9); God will not only connect you to His inexhaustible resources you require to accomplish your assigned mandate, He will also give you the lasting victory over all the raging battles and make you become a reference point throughout human history.

Therefore, I charge you this day to look away from every human and earthly source for your help but stay your hope, your trust and your confidence only on Jesus who alone can supply all your needs and lift you out of the valley of neglect, rejection, abandonment, shame and defeat to the mountain top of outstanding success and divine accomplishments. Good morning, have a blessed day.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
