QUOTE OF THE DAY:“PLACES DO NOT MAKE MEN, IT IS MEN THAT MAKE PLACES”
Memory Verse: “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing”. Genesis 12:2.
Can you think of a country having the most buoyant economy in the world? How do they arrive at this enviable economic status? It is their men who believe in that country that worked selflessly to build it. The most beautiful country in the world, probably having the most viable economy where almost everybody wants to go never started like that. It was built over time via collaborative efforts of patriotic men. If nations have the capacity of making men, beggars won’t be found everywhere. Nations do not make men, but God does by the hands of men. Also, nations do not change men, but men change nations. If our nation, will be great, it’s all in our hands.
If we will experience a new dimension of politics, technological innovations, it will be stirred up by the people living in it. If any nation fell from grace to grass in such a way that it became a laughing stock in the international community and vice-versa, do not look any further, ask from her citizens. No society can rise any higher than the willingness of her citizens to make it rise.[pullquote]Nations do not make men, but God does by the hands of men.

However, it is possible for a society to experience a positive change. There must be men who will stand in the gap. I mean men who are ready to sacrifice. Men who will always think of what they can do for their country, not what their country would do for them. We need men like John Knox who will say to God, ‘give me Scotland or I die’. We need men like Martin Boss, who spent hours and days and often nights in lonely agonies of intercession. A good nation builder never thinks of where to run to if everything collapses. This is a wrong mindset.
Never say anything derogatory or cast aspersion on your country – confession is possession. Remember, some people built that place you want to run to. Why can’t you sit down, and liase with people of like-minds and brainstorm on what can be done to effect a change you desire. It begins with you, the Bible says, ‘And has made us kings and priests’ Revelation 1:6. It is either we reign or our nation ruins. Stand up now and do something. It is well!
