Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“To each is a goal to which Allah turns him; then strive together towards all that is good…” Surah Baqara – QN2:148, reminds us that, as far as God was concerned, Prosperity belonged to His people and because He has given us the gift of resources and strength to fulfil our destiny, all we need do is to step out in faith and though we are not likely to win in our own strength, the good news is that we have nothing to fear for it is He who has commanded, is going ahead to clear the way for us – QN65:12.
In other words, while we are waiting for Him to bring certain things to us, He may actually be waiting for us to go out and get them.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Whatever God calls us to do, He gives us the ability to do them, but first, we must work to develop the ability to do so;
2) Sometimes He answers our prayers immediately and gives us what we ask for, but at other times, the onus is on us to pursue what He promised, which calls for teamwork, passion, patience and persistence; and
3) More often, rather than our wishes or pleas, it is our faith-in-action that He responds to;
Teach you, this new week, if indeed your need for something is strong, to feed on His words, develop positivity and keep fighting for it!
Pray with me: O Allah! Keep me strong in Faith that I may live in prosperity perpetually, Amin!
Good morning and have a happy week!
