Many today train vigorously, thinking that in warfare, numerous and powerful soldiers would always be victorious. Many study tirelessly, thinking that men of great understanding who are masters of management will always be men of substance. But look throughout history, many a good men spend their days unnoticed, uncelebrated and in obscurity. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says that the race is not for the swift nor the battle for the strong. This philosophy goes against common sense but it is the reality, It is the wisdom of God. For God does not need a majority to fight His war; He just needs a suitable man.

Are you suitable? They are suitable who have submitted to His will, who subject themselves to the check and conduct of the Holy Spirit, who lay their souls under souls under His influences and operations.

James 4:7-8, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you…”

Joseph knew he would face certain trying situations that would challenge his continued commitment to Christ but that if he was under the check and conduct of the Holy Spirit, God would rescue His faithful servant out of trouble and put honour upon him. And by His grace, Joseph was rescued indeed. Are you a suitable man?

Prayer: When God’s grace is taken away, nothing pure, nothing good in you will stay. The protection will be gone, your strength will be gone, your victory will be gone. Everything that makes meaning in you will be gone. Right now, bow down your head and ask God not to take His grace away from you.

Deuteronomy 20:1-4
Psalm 20
Exodus 23:20-33

    1 Corinthians 4:16
    Therefore I urge you to imitate me.

    The the Holy Bible is advising us to imitate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ like his Apostles who were imitating him That is to follow his foot steps. We should be imitators of Lord Jesus Christ through faith and patience so that we inherit what has been promised by him.
    We should follow what is good which is from God. Anyone who does not do good things has not seen God Almighty.
    Lets be imitators of God as a dearly loved children and we should live a life of love, Just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as fragrant offering and sacrifice to Almighty God.
    I encourage the children of God Almighty to become imitators of the faithful Lord Jesus Jesus Christ because he is the way the truth and the life. He is yesterday, today and tomorrow. He will keep our lamp burning he turns our darkness into light,
