od can use anything and anybody to facilitate our breakthroughs. As a matter of fact, nobody gets to the top without an enabler. Whether directly or indirectly there is somebody positioned along your destiny path to lead you into your 'promise land'. Unfortunately, many have lost great opportunities in life as a result of treating their supposed helpers wrongly. Be careful how you treat people particularly if they seem not to be of benefit to you now. One thing is certain, the table always turns and it could be you in need of help from same person tomorrow. See the light in others and don't be the reason someone feels insecure. Many times we are locked in the old cliché 'nothing goes for nothing' but the truth is, it is not kindness when you are helping someone and expecting something in return; that is business. We are in a society where people's interest comes first but when we take it upon ourselves to look out for others, God will look out for us. The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone but what you do for others remain as your legacy. You were born with the ability to make a difference in someone's life, don't ever waste it. God help those who help themselves but He blesses those who help others.
It was about eight o'clock when her son who was asthmatic developed some complications. He had to be rushed to the nearest hospital about 1km away or else it would be fatal. She called a neighbor who had a car but the neighbor said the car had no fuel; she called the pastor who said he had visiting pastors from USA and could not leave them alone. She decided to carry the son to the hospital; she could not imagine losing her only child to the same sickness that had killed the husband few years earlier. She had a problem with her leg and could not move fast enough and the son was also heavy for her to move faster. Along the way she met people rushing home from work who just stared at her. She tried to beg them for help but they assumed her. She also tried to stop passing vehicles but they never responded. She fell many times but she had to keep moving. Then a man who was mad and used to roam the streets unclad noticed her. He came running towards her and took the son from her. She could not talk but just pointed the direction of the hospital. The crazy unclad man could understand perfectly well what she meant since he saw the desperate boy struggling for breath. He put him on the shoulder and told the woman "all will be well" as he ran towards the hospital. The doctors on seeing the crazy man knew something was really wrong; they attended to the boy immediately. Ten minutes later the mother arrived and the doctor broke the news "if he was brought five minutes later, he would have died."
God can use anybody to get to you. The person you disdain today can be a conduit for your deliverance tomorrow. No man is a highland. Everybody needs somebody to get to somewhere. And our God is a specialist in using the weak to confound the mighty. Man may disappoint you but God who uses a man's disappointment and turn it around for His divine appointment will always be there for you. God's plan will always be greater and better than all your disappointments. Allow God to guide and lead you. Don't stop praying. Don't stop being a blessing. God hears you and He is working things out for you good. God bless you big.
