When you are growing up as a child, you always have your own dreams that are laden with successes and achievements.

You dream of graduating in college, having an awesome job, marrying a good spouse, having gorgeous children that are decent and sharp, owing multiple businesses, stocks and assets, retiring in peace, and ultimately leaving behind trans-generational wealth. This is biblically supported, for “a good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children” (Proverbs 3:22a).

However, the world does not work like that. You are bound to face many twists and turns because everything under the sun is seasonal and cyclic.

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1).

You have to know this:

There is turbulence in the journey of life. You need to brace up for impact.
There are tears of pain along the path to success. You need a strong heart to contain the damages.
There are blast furnaces of financial challenges. You need strong faith to douse those flames.
There are snakes of gossips along the road. You need to counter them with divine anti-venom.
There are thieves disguised as angels of destiny. You need the grace to sniff them through.
There are sorcerers disguised as family members. You need the courage to flush them out of your inner circle.
There are haters disguised as helpers. You need to flash them off your radar.
There are deceiving thoughts of vengeance. Have the courage to pluck them off your mind.

This journey of life requires you to be extremely careful not to miss the mark. Failure to read the situation carefully may be catastrophic.

Don’t end up as a prostitute.
Don’t end up as a street gangster.
Don’t end up in a correctional facility.
Don’t end up in hospital.
Don’t end up as an outcast.
Don’t end up in a rehabilitation centre.
Don’t end up in a gambling house.
Don’t end up in the graveyard.

This truth will keep you content:

Not everyone enjoys every good moments all at once. Even Jesus Christ, the Messiah, had a mixture of good and dark moments. But failure may arise due your failure to manage the situations.

“My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent. If they say, ‘Come with us, let us lie in wait to shed blood; let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause. My son, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path; for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood” (Proverbs 1:10-11; 15-16).

Stay safe and remained committed to the good cause of managing twists and turns. You will surely win that battle!
