The words which began tomorrow's future of Dubai: "Brothers I think it is time for a new government " – Sheik Maktoum bin Butti, 1833. 🧐🧐🧐

Just two generations ago (50 years) homes in Dubai didn't have running water. This now eye-popping city was nothing more than an obscure speck on Arabian sand. Now tops New York City as one of the most visited cities in the world.🐫🏙🌃🚄✈🏪🏗🏝🏖🏥🏟

I often wonder as do many others, "how did Dubai do it?" How did Dubai go from a devasting pearling village to high-flying global powerhouse in less than 50 years? ⁉️⁉️⁉️

OIL? Wrong! The answer is not oil!


Dubai is the poorest petrochemical producers compared to her wealthy neighbours. Dubai has minimal oils reserve, so what is the answer?

The answer is: L E A D E R S H I P!

In our country, with a former president still esteemed by the ruling party on the loose with over 700 charges of fraud and corruption, how is this happy freedom? Anti-corruption institutions themselves that lost their legitimacy. Our rainbow future dimmed by corruption and drained by overpaid but under-qualified leaders, how is freedom is?

 

Diverting the ridiculously high unemployment rate (51%)  by citing historical causes is fantasy, not freedom.  Trapped in the entitlement mentality and a blame game paradigm, is this freedom? Economic empowerment initiatives that only secure votes, are we free?

 

Low literacy pass rates, short-term hgh price list minded educational policies, shut down technical, teaching and nursing colleges, is this freedom?

 

An inadequate infrastructure that will not take us very far, poor exploitation of natural resources, a lack of professionals to meet the needs of a growing population,  how are we free?

 

Poor service delivery from the top down, way too many obstacles to overcome,  is this freedom?

 

Subconsciously, we are a nation, bruised, angry, fearful, and have more things that divide us than unite us. A nation with more heists than heroes,  is this freedom? 

 

Unfilled promises, one shameful election after another, those who sit in Godly seats of authority are much too afraid to speak up. Spiritual leaders are sharper to lash out against the Church then the state.  Injustice rides high in black Merc’s and BMW’s,  arrogance and pride parades victorious – throughout the land.

 

..is this what we are celebrating in our country, today?

On a hopeful note. …when a divided Church realises her authority and power and how only through unity it can be harnessed to influence the state. When religious leaders stop seeing political leader/s as the Messiah. ….trust in God alone. Then as in the days of old, the Church will once again stand. …as the greatest catalyst of change against injustice. 

 

To live effectively, significantly and honorably unto God, There are 3 bases in life that we must increase in. 

 

 

INTRODUCTION 

 

October Meditation Verse Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom, a house is built, and through understanding, it is established; through knowledge, its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

 

The First is our Knowledge Base

 

(Repeat) The capacity of your learning will determine the standard of your living. Learning is what builds the reservoir for continuity and the ability to maximise potentials. The day you stop learning is the day you stop living. The day you stop learning is the day become obsolete.  Proverbs 24:5 declares that "… a man of knowledge increases strength." 

 

The Second is our Understanding Base

 

(Repeat) Understanding is the ability to translate meaning from Knowledge.  Proverbs  9:10 declares, "  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 

 

The Third is our Wisdom Base

 

(Repeat) Wisdom is knowing what to do and doing it.   If you know what to do and you don’t do it, you are just an “Informed fool”  or an “Educated fool”. 

 

 

PILLARS OF WISDOM

For Destiny Encounters

Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars – Proverbs 9:1

 

Consider this, when one builds a house, the first thing that must be laid is a foundation. Regardless of how beautiful the structure may be, if the foundation is weak, the future of the structure is not secure.  Proverbs 9:1 tells us that "Wisdom has built her house…"   But what is the foundation the House of Wisdom? 

 

Fortunately, the scriptures give us the answer. The foundation of the House of Wisdom is the FEAR of the LORD!

The fear of LORD is the beginning | of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 

– Proverbs 9:10.

We don’t reach divine wisdom through much study or the acquisition of much understanding, no! We reach Divine Wisdom, by the fear of the LORD. The fear of the LORD is a reverential trust and obedience that says, "I will do whatever You want me to do, I will say whatever You want me to say, and I will go wherever You want me to go without delay" (Genesis 22) For without this kind of faith it is impossible to please God  (Hebrews 11:6), and there can be no true wisdom.   Therefore the lack of obedience towards an instruction of God is the classification of a house (life) of foolishness!

 

 

Culled from the Pillars of Wisdom for Destiny Encounters. A Message by Dr Shan Thumbran, October 2019.    

  

To live effectively, significantly and honorably unto God, there are 7 Wisdom Pillars you must pursue to encounter destiny.  

 

Wisdom Pillar #1

1. Discover Your Kingdom Dream 

 

What is a Kingdom Dream?  A Kingdom Dream is a mental picture of your authentic future as revealed by the Word of God.  Hebrew 12:1 declares  "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us".  

 

Therefore, your Kingdom Dream is not a desire but a discovery.  You don't decide it, you discover it. God has already "set (it) before us". Incredible!  Ambition says "I will do this by myself for myself." Vision says, "I will do this with God for others" this is a Dream from Heaven! 

 

A Kingdom Dream is a picture of your authentic future as revealed by the Scriptures

Look at another important concept. We said a Kingdom Dream is a picture of your authentic future as revealed by the Scriptures. A Kingdom Dram is by Revelation of the scriptures (Visions, Dreams, Audible Voice of God). 

 

 


Sow a seed for any amount. It helps me to keep writing.  God bless you!  


 

This is why a KINGDOM DREAM always guarantees fulfillment and completions.  This discovery kept Abraham to be the head and not the tail and it kept him satisfied in life! Romans 4:20 declares,  "He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, (keep him going!) giving glory to God (Satisfied!) 

 

You cannot see the future and not remain at the top of life!

You cannot see the future and not remain strong in Faith!

You cannot see the future and not celebrate!

You cannot see the future and remained depressed!

Jesus, hang on the cross, with a smile on His face  – Why? He saw the end (Heb 12:2) 

Joseph was the most excited slave, his flint remained strong – Why? He saw the end! 

 

Unless your Dream is flying on the wings of God’s Word your future is not guaranteed in life (Isaiah 55:11). 

When you align your aspirations with God, you have a guarantee that it will come to pass. His Word cannot return void!

[shareable]You are not playing poker with God when it comes to your Kingdom Dream! [/shareable]

Your ability decides your responsibility. Higher duties always correlate to higher capacity. The more you learn, the more opportunities you create. Personal development works hand in hand with opportunity your create.
The law of success dictates,  “first within than without.” Wealth creation works in proportion to the value you add, which works in proportion to your capacity.

Character Enlists, Ability Assigns   

God enlists man according to Character and assigns them according to ability.
Have a look at this example in Matthew 25:15
 
“To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each according to his ABILITY.”
It has for men like; Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, David, Solomon,  Daniel etc…
Charles Kettering of General Motors once said,
“I tell my people that I don’t want any fellow who has a job working for me; what I want is a fellow whom the job has. And I want the job to get a hold of this young man so hard that no matter where he is; the job has got him for keeps. I want that job to have him in its clutches when he goes to bed at night, and in the morning I want that job to be sitting at the foot of the bed telling him, ‘It’s time to get up and go to work!’ And when a job gets a fellow that way, he’s sure to amount to something.”
Mr. Kettering was insistent in investing a multimillion-dollar powerhouse, in a man who would invest in himself.
Are you this person?  Personal development works hand in hand with opportunity your create.

Your Mental Output outweighs Your Biological Origin.

People could careless of your biological origin if you are the person who “delivers the goods.”
The essence of success is pinned one “quality.”
The quality of your work is the deciding factor on how much your services or goods are valued by the world.
Consider Joseph and Daniel in the Bible, both of them outshone in places hostile to their origin and culture.   Personal development is extending your base to increase your height and expand your exposure.
Mrs. Oprah Winfrey once said,
“Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism.”
If you desire to increase in wealth, or in influence,  then increase your knowledge base (in the area of your work). Increase the quality of products and services that you offer others.
Be the king in your field.
Give each assignment your utmost for my highest.
Then you will increase in wealth.
