Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“… fear Me, So that I may complete My favour upon you and that you may be rightly guided.” Surah Baqara – QN2:150, reminds us that, just as three clear stages namely, a time for sowing, a time for growing and a time for reaping, are found in farming; those who succeed in God’s presence have to go through a more fascinating five-stage process which includes, the birth of the vision, the preparation, time in the wilderness and struggle, followed by the realisation of the vision and finally, new beginnings and new visions.
In other words, the idea that, if something is really from God, no struggle on our part need be involved, is nothing but a misconception.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When God gives us a vision, some action on our part must follow for it to succeed;
2) For our visions to amount to anything more than passing fancies, some action, no matter how little, will be required of us; and
3) As we grow, the intensity of the battle increases, then greater amounts of preparation will be required of us;
Teach you, this new week, with a better understanding of the stages of your vision, to start planning new strategies and thereafter commit all to God!
Pray with me: O Allah! To You belongs all Favors and Mercy, guide me along my path to success and position me for greater achievements and greater victories, O The Majestic, The Supreme Lord! Amin.
Good morning and have a beautiful week!
