When Moses Bliss sang: “God is too faithful”, the reality in that song is so evident, especially in our daily living.
God has evidently been faithful towards us, our families and businesses; and we can make a brief analysis to see how awesome He has been in providing and sustaining us, daily.
Let’s try doing some calculation and financial fix to unveil how God has been taking care of us in an all-encompassing way.
Note, it’s not about how organized, coordinated or financial intelligent we are towards our daily living; but God has made a way that has enabled us to LIVING ABOVE OUT FINANCIAL EXPECTATIONS.
Let’s consider a family with Three (3) Children, yourself and spouse: 3 +2=5
Let’s do the calculation:
5 plates of food for breakfast, 5 plates for lunch & 5 plates for dinner
= 15 plates of food per day.
Multiply by at least N300 per plate: = N4,500
N4,500 per day for 30 days (1 month); We spend average of N135, 000 per month… That’s N1,620,000 per annum …and you say, you are not a millionaire?
Snacks and in-between meals are not included o! School fees, are not included. Medical bills are not included here too. Transport fare/fueling not yet in the calculation o! What of recharge cards, subscriptions and other miscellaneous. Shoes, clothes etc, not added o! After all, we no go go out naked nah… Right?
House rent, for those without a house of their own, is not included. Outrageous Electricity bills and other utility bills are not in the calculation. ‘Oga something for the boys?’ no dey there oooo! (Lol)
Now, the question is, “How do you make it happen with your monthly stipends?” Isn’t it a miracle that we live, and still pushing?
And, God just have a special way of coming through for us at each time we are stranded?
Count your blessings, name them one by one; Count your blessings, see what God has done;
Count your blessings, name them one by one; And it will surprise you what the LORD has done for you and your family.
Let’s return all Glory to our creator. Let us be grateful for all the faithfulness, care and kindness God has shown us, and is still showing us.
Daily, make “THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST” your anthem. He rewards a grateful heart with more than what we expected.
Remember, you must be closer to God at all times.
