I am currently involved in a competition that is set up such that it feels like the odds are stacked against me on so many levels. Yet in the face of stiff competition and a not-so-perfect performance, I have scaled every stage so far, always coming out tops. As confident as I should be in my capacity to do the job, I am certain that it is only God who propels me towards and eventually past the finish line.
I go into each new stage conscious of the fact that I am utterly incapable of securing victory for myself, this makes me completely turn to the only help I can trust. God.
Recently, I have taken so much from Him and rarely give back. I am a far from a worthy candidate for God’s blessings and favour, yet He has shown up for me every time. People rain accolades upon me, impressed by the magnificent oak tree I have ‘seemingly’ become. People don’t know that all I do is plant and water, but it is God who gives the increase.
Finals are in two weeks, and it would be God and not my talent, that will prevail once again. No matter the odds, hard work and fervent faith in the One who holds the keys to the universe can help get you through it.
