Don’t Get It Twisted

–Sola Sorinolu,

He was bitter when he was sacked. The painful part was that he had no inkling as to why he was handed an appointment termination letter. With a wife and three children to fend for, He was in despair.

Few months down the line, EFCC agents paid a visit to his former department at work and arrested everyone. A fraud to the tune of millions of naira had been committed and the company’s management had to invite the EFCC into the matter.

He was almost in tears when he was sharing this in church. He was mad at God when he was fired, but now he couldn’t be more grateful for losing his job!

Amazingly enough, he now runs his own profitable importation business!

What would you do when a door you were sure God opened suddenly closed? Elijah was told by God to go to Brook Cherith to drink and be fed by ravens to escape the drought in Israel. But after a time, the brook dried up!And to think that it was God that told him to go there. Did that make God a liar? No!

The brook dried up because God had already provided an alternative in the widow of Zarephath(Ref: 1kg.1-9)!

So when seeming divine opportunities are shut down, do not despair. Rest assured that God is opening up something better!
