THE 'SNOW EXCUSE'.

Trish and Lindy were friends and room mates, going to the same college. The classes for that day were so hectic and intense that they just couldn't wait to get home and hit the bed.
Trish got home first before Lindy did and fell asleep instantly. Lindy joined the sleep mode an hour later.

Morning arrived with rain accompanying it. Lindy got up, and began preparing to leave for classes and also to meet up the 30% test for the day.

Lindy woke Trish up to get dressed but she said she can't go for classes because of the rain and moreover the professor won't show for the test because it's raining.
Lindy, tried to make her get dressed but it just didn't work. She had to leave with the Umbrella.

On reaching school, the Professor was already in class ready to give the test. And many students missed it because of "its raining excuse". Including Trish.

What's your excuse?

Let's look at 2 SAMUEL 23:

This chapter of the Bible talks about the 37 mighty men with David at every point of challenges always stood their ground and fought.
But one man strucked me in VERSE 20 ; his name is Benaiah the son of Jehoiada. See verse below:
"And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts,  he slew two lionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit IN TIME OF SNOW:"

Did you see that? He still went down and fought even in time of snow. Some of us would have used the snow as an excuse of not fighting. But, no! Not Benaiah, he still went out, nothing could deter him. Not even the two lion like men of Moab could make him turn round and run for his life. Wow!

This should be our spirit as born-again children of God, who do know their God. Who should learn to stand their grounds with faith in God and with boldness to face challenges of life.

Never give excuses on why not to fight, using the snow as your excuse. Benaiah did not use it. Your own 'snow excuse' could be "am not fit" , "am not tall or slim", "I don't have the resources", "am not a great talker" just like Moses told God in
Exodus 4:10-12 and God told Moses don't worry I will be with your mouth and teach you what to say but still Moses wasn't still sure of his eloquence and God had to make Aaron , Moses spokesperson.

Maybe, your excuse for not speaking to someone about your faith and belief could be, "it's sunny", "it's raining ", "ah! Am so tried", "the Pastor is not here", "I have nothing to say". Believe me, you have all it takes, for God has given you the spirit of boldness and of a sound mind.

In all this, don't make excuses. Go for it! You can do it! Encourage yourself in the Lord and He will be your strength and helper.

Jesus is Lord!
