DAY 7 - THE SPIRIT OF A PIONEER
“Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.” Genesis 6:14-16 (NKJV)
We all know the story quite well, where God asked Noah to make something that no one had ever seen before. He had to convince his family and friends of this vision, but everybody thought that he had lost it. “What flood is he speaking of?” they would mock amongst themselves!
Despite him preaching for decades, trying to save people from the imminent flood, nobody would listen. He only managed to get his family and the animals into the ark. A pioneer’s job is never easy. Anybody obeying God or doing something that has never been done before will be faced with challenges, attack, opposition, etc. But whenever God gives a vision, He also provides the provision. Though the gates of hell may be opened, they can never prevail against us if we hold onto the vision.
You are a new creation. You carry a new bloodline and a new DNA. The spirit of a pioneer runs through your veins. You are ordained by God for greatness!
“I am destined for something that is far greater than me, but with God, nothing shall be impossible for me! I have the spirit of a pioneer inside me. Today, I take up the power to be innovative and creative. I shall be used to carry out great exploits, the likes of which have never been seen, in the Name of Jesus.”
