Because he has shot down many wounded; yes, many strong men have been killed for it (Proverbs 7:26).
The Creator made women to be helpers of men, but some, as helpers of the devil, help the devil to destroy the destiny of men. A woman is supposed to be to a man what a fireplace is to a family in winter, so that in company she can warm him from the cold of his loneliness. She, who was destined to be a suitable helper for him, was the undoing of him. Instead of helping man, Eve helped the devil destroy Adam (Genesis 3:6), Delilah destroy Samson (Judges 16:19), Jezebel destroy Ahab (1 Kings 21:15), and Over the years, women continue to repeat history.
God is still looking for a man in our generation who can say like Joseph: How then can I do this great wickedness and sin against God? Mrs. Potiphar will not be able to destroy your destiny unless you allow her access to that rod between your legs. There is no grave for you anywhere; your tomb is that bed where you commit adultery or fornicate with her. Some think that a man is dead when that man shows no visible signs of being alive. Nope! Death is existing with dead dreams. Some also think of a man’s grave as a six foot deep hole in the ground. Nope! It is that hole of few centimeters in the body of a woman. Many men dig their graves with their sexual organs long before using the shovel.
You who still live a promiscuous life should know that you have begun to dig your grave. It is only a matter of years before you contract HIV/AIDS unless you repent and abstain. A man who wants to fulfill his destiny will fear a woman more than the devil. If you want to fulfill your destiny, first make sure you stay alive. A dead man cannot fulfill his destiny; those who zip up today need to zip up tomorrow.
Do not give your strength to women, nor your ways to that which destroys kings (Proverbs 31:3).
A woman’s inner strength is her outer weakness. With her weakness she can kill many strong men and destroy kings. It is not easy to get rid of a man unless you go through his wife who stays with him all the time and knows his secrets. She sees his nakedness in bed and no shame is hidden from her. The man trusts her and, like Samson, tells her everything about himself, forgetting that the devil was an angel and she is still a woman subject to change. A woman loves to hear the truth, but she hates the man after he has told her. So any wise man will be careful not to tell a woman everything he knows about himself or anything important.
A man is unique for his strength and a woman for her weakness. Genesis 3:23 says that the man was the one who had the strength to work the land and not the woman. God made man to be stronger than woman both physically and emotionally. For example, if I ask a man and a woman of the same age to cut down a tree, the woman will be the first to tire and abandon the task. Peter calls her the most fragile glass due to her soft and cuddly nature. A woman is easily hurt and it is easy for her tears to flow. A man, on the other hand, is strong because he is controlled by his head and not by his heart. He bases all his actions on reasoning and not on feeling. God also made man wiser than woman in both planning and action. A man thinks deeply before acting. A woman, on the other hand, acts rashly before thinking. I think that is why God made the man head over the woman because he possesses all the wisdom that is needed to manage the home effectively and efficiently.
A man who gives his strength to a woman is like a king who shatters his subject’s crown. If you don’t exercise your authority as a man over a woman, you have given her your manly strength. If you give a woman all the money you should have saved, you have given her your financial strength. A man who spends all his resources on a woman plays dumb at the end of the game. Love is a game and the one who always loses is the one who plays it fair and gives money freely; a man must use both his head and his heart to love a woman. If you give a woman all the time you should have used to work, you have also given her your financial strength because time is money. A woman is the destroyer of a king and not the maker of a king. She, who promises to make a man great in her life, can soon spoil it if he is not careful with her. She is not in his way to deceive him but to derail him. A woman does not produce a man’s greatness in life but she shares his glory.
Do not love the dream, so that you do not impoverish yourself; open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread (Proverbs 20:13).
Those who love success in life will hate sleep. A man who loves to sleep will never know the joy of being rich. My very good friend Onome evangelist Stephen Obiunukefe said that if you sleep too much, life will pass you by and that is true. Life will not offer success to those who love sleep, but to those who love hard work. You must be a worker so that life does not pass you by. Imagine a man who sleeps at night and throughout the day. While others go to his various workplaces, he is sleeping in his bed. While others earn money to improve their lives, he dreams of becoming rich but realizes the harsh reality of his hardship. At the end of the month, while others smile home with his salary, he also smiles but only in his dreams. If you don’t have a job, he finds something to do. Don’t waste your time sleeping. Opportunity does not come by sleeping but by seeking. Start looking for something to do with your time that brings you money.
Poverty is not a lack of money but a lack of ideas. You are not poor because you don’t have money to start something of your own; you are poor because you lack the ideas of how to use the little money you have to earn more money for yourself. Aliko Dangote, who is one of the richest businessmen in Nigeria today, started his business with limited resources. She was able to be successful not because she invested so much money in the business, but because she had the ideas of how to use a little to get a lot. If he had liked to sleep and refused to be diligent in business, he might now have settled for financial mediocrity. Financial excellence is not for those who wait for a favorable condition or opportunity to present itself, but for those who work while they wait. He who has a dream and goes back to sleep will soon realize that no dream comes true. He does not sleep away from the dreams and visions of him in life. He wakes up to reality and start doing something for yourself today to fulfill them. Don’t be like this lazy man.
Money will not come to you if you sit idle at home. You must go out and look for it every day. Every sweet thing in life demands sweat and money is no exception. The principle of money is simple: do something and get something in return, do nothing and get nothing in return; sleep and become poor, work and become rich. The choice is yours. If you continue to love sleep, your poverty will continue and become abject. If you do not want to live a painful life, open your eyes and you will be satisfied with bread. The food that you will eat during your life is already there; you must work hard before eating it. There is always money in the bank, but you cannot go there and withdraw other people’s money; you must work hard for yours. Sleep is sweet, but success is sweeter. Like I said, the choice is yours.
