Topic: His Teacher Said He Would Never Amount To Anything!
Scripture: Deuteronomy 28
Albert Einstein was the most popular and influential theoretical Physicist in history. He is well known for his Mass Energy Equivalent formula, dubbed the world’s most famous formula. But do you know that at a point in his life, he was written off? Indeed, early in life, Einstein was fascinated by science, mathematics and music. But as a young student, he struggled with school exams, learning to write and speak in English.
Albert Einstein was considered a slow learner. His struggle with authority once led to his expulsion from school.And his school teacher reportedly told him that he would not amount to anything in life. But this did not stop him from pursuing his passion: Physics. The year 1905 was referred to as a miraculous year because of the four papers written by Einstein which laid the foundation for Quantum Physics, that introduced special relativity and established the scientific basis of atomic energy. This eventually led to his being given professorships in Zurich, Prague and Berlin.
In 1921, Einstein became one of the founders of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In the same year, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics. In 1952, he was offered the position of President of Israel, by the then prime minister. But he turned it down. On the 18th of April 1955, he died at the age of 76. And though it has been over 65 years since he died, the legacy and contributions of this same man, whom his teacher said would never amount to anything because of his struggle with school, learning and exams, has continued to influence humanity. Albert Einstein was the genius that drastically changed man’s view of the universe against ALL ODDS.
THE HOLY GHOST is saying: DON’T ALLOW THE OPINION OF OTHERS TO BECOME YOUR BIBLE! THEY ARE NOT YOUR CREATOR! What has man called you because of the struggles in your life? Who has written you off because things are not working in your life right now? Prov. 24: 16 says: “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again…’’
No matter the struggle, the fall or who has written you off, you are destined for the top IF YOU DON’T QUIT! You are not destined to remain on the ground, no matter your fall.
Deuteronomy 28:13 (today’s scripture) says it like this: “And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them’’
God is determined to take you to the top and not leave you on the ground or in your struggles. Ignore who has called you what! Focus on what God says about you! Obey His Word, no matter the temptation or pressure to cut corners in disobedience and you shall rise again.
According to Fraser Bonitas, always remember that:“At every given moment, you have the right to say: this is not how my story is going to end.’’ You are the next to prove your mockers wrong against all odds! Hold on and hold out! This is your year!
1. Take your best worship song as led.
2. In your own words, pray about today’s word as you are led now.
3. Man will not have the last say over my life in Jesus name. Pray this seriously.
LORD GOD, according to Your Word in Deuteronomy 28:13, make me the head, the first, and take me to the top in my field of endeavour, no matter my struggle in Jesus name (Pray it for yourself and family for 3 days).
Pray about today as led. Pray pages 7-9 prayers.
