Could It Be That You Are Stabbing Yourself At The Back Unknowingly...?

This short article describes how one's actions in fighting against someone's rising could translate into a self -sabotaging act...

God endowed His people with diverse gifts, abilities, and talents that each one is expected to discover his/her own and utilize maximally. Two people in a family, neighborhood, or community may not have the same gifts or talents; as such, one has no business in envying or sabotaging someone's gifts or talents. Each person is given certain gifts to utilize effectively for the service of God and Humanity. So, trying to terminate someone's life simply because his gifts and calling make him stand before kings could be an attempt to sabotage your destiny helper or of your family or neighborhood tomorrow. 

Meanwhile, when God is raising someone up in your family or neighborhood, don't let jealousy, envy, and hatred push you to conspire against him/ her. You may be fighting against your destiny helper tomorrow or that of your children. Fighting against someone's rising in order to see him/her remain on the same page with you will not in any way make you go ahead of him/her. God made the sky big enough for all the birds to fly. Likewise, someone's rising will not stop you from rising when it's time. Could it be that you are stabbing yourself in the back unknowingly by fighting against someone's rising?

Supposing the Biblical Joseph brothers have succeeded in terminating his dream of becoming a great leader ahead of them by killing him, as they initially intended to do. Perhaps, all of them and their families could have perished in the famine that would have ravaged the world.

The dream that Joseph had wasn't only for himself. Perhaps, God was planning to use him to save his family members from extinction and to protect the covenant He had established with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God intended to use Joseph to save many souls from perishing, including that of the conspirators(his brothers). At the peak of the famine, they rushed to Egypt to get food for themselves and their families. The food that Joseph, " the dreamer," have stored.

Therefore, be careful of fighting against the rising of someone, whether it is your brother, sister, friend, neighbor, or child. You may be fighting against your destiny helper tomorrow; you may end up terminating the savior of your future children. You may be fighting against the person that would uplift your village or town tomorrow from her deplorable state. You may be fighting someone that God could use tomorrow to sign the employment letters of your Children. You may end up fighting someone that could channel a developmental project to your community tomorrow. You may end up fighting against someone that could rescue you from your enemies tomorrow. Instead of fighting against his/her rising and dreams, pray to God and ask for His divine guidance and perfection of His will over your life too. For God has plans for all His people, plans of good. He created everyone with unique talents and gifts. All you need to do is to discover your own talents, gifts, and purpose and pursue them relentlessly. Your influence will be much more effective in the area of your gifting and purpose.

Stay optimistic!
