Imagine a scenario where someone comes to say, ‘hey! You seem to be so sure that you are going to succeed in life. Why are you so sure that you will make it? Can’t you see that life is hard?’
I honestly do not know what you would have said but my response would simply be, ‘according to his word, ‘He (talking about me, Fola Daniel Adelesi) shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.’ – Psalm 1:3
Using the words, ‘according to his word’ is like entering the correct codes to access a vault and as soon as you get the codes right you have access to everything in the vault. The word of God is the vault of life and anyone who can access it has access to anything that is in this life and even the things that are in heaven. That is why am so sure it will work for me or any other person that decided to use it at any time or any moment. Some Nigerians will say, ‘this is a sure banker’ – that simply means this is certain and nothing can change it.
I can face anyone who dares to ask me why I think I will succeed and anyone who cares to listen to tell them that the word of God is a ‘sure banker.’ God said it, I believe it and that settles it. No more, no less! In case the person wants to argue and he starts saying, ‘you sound so confident but your current situation does not in any way show us how you will succeed!’ My response, if I were you would simply be, ‘my situation does not look like what I say and that is the more reason you should believe that it will change. His word says I shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water and I will bring forth my fruit in season.’ Nothing can change that. Let me quickly say here that to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water means to be in the right place that God has prepared for you. A tree planted by the rivers of water can only prosper because of the provision of water that is constantly available to it. When you stay in a place outside of God’s provision you will never be able to bring forth your fruit in season.
According to God’s word, my leaf shall not wither and whatsoever – any legitimate thing that I lay my hands on according to the word of God – I do shall prosper. This tells me that even before I started God already guaranteed the success of what I want to do. He has already guaranteed the prosperity of what I have not even started because I was not the one who went to him to say that he should allow the things that I do should prosper. He started a process by telling me that if I decide to do it then I should discard every fear regarding its success.
When anybody says, ‘how do you know this will work?’ Now I believe you already know what to say to them. I would simply say according to His word, whatsoever Fola Daniel Adelesi does shall prosper because His word has integrity and cannot fail so I believe it!
