Exodus 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
Nothing good ever comes easily! Manna will not fall from heaven just like that! You have to fight for what you want! You have to fight to get where you want in life. If you are sitting down and just waiting for a job, just waiting for business funding, just waiting for your husband or wife to come back, just waiting for a girl friend or boyfriend and and not making a move. DOG EAT YOU SUPPA!
I am where I am today because I had a dream and my mother, who was my first financier BACKED me and helped me to get my first set of major machines and stocks. The fight didn't end there. When I was of age, I had to continue the fight to raise capital to bring me where I am today.
I have had my good days in business and I have met HELL. What should I do? GIVE UP! How foolhardy!
I have had people who were for me and people who secretly fought me down on boards across The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis to TRY and prevent me from rising because I have a big brain and a lot of creative ideas. These very same people smiled with me in front of my face and continued to wish me well and even came to use my business services which I gladly provided them, like I didn't know what they were doing. We live in a very small world!
I am where I am today because with the help of GOD, I PUT UP A FIGHT AND NOTHING EVER CAUSES ME TO GIVE UP. If and when I slip, I just get right back up and like the ENERGIZER BUNNY, I keep on going and going and going!
My vision is to expand locally, regionally and internationally and with such a dream, I must continue to think outside the box and fight to get where I want to get and explore as many different funding options as possible to grow my KVK ENTERPRISES - www.kvklives.com business franchises globally and my Dare 2 Be Different International - www.daretobedifferentskn.com Ministry hubs globally so one day we are even larger than TBN.
Hence my very creative advertisement below.
While I am fully aware that miracles still happen, I certainly do not expect someone to walk into my office or call me and tell me that they have a US$1 Million Dollar check for me to help me with my dreams. Of course, if God lays that on someone's heart, TO GOD BE THE GLORY, but I am not looking out for something like that at all.
I AM PREPARED TO WORK AND WORK HARD! YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO DO THAT TOO!
The point I am trying to raise here is this. Many times the ANSWER to your problems come when YOU GET UP OFF YOUR BUTTOCKS, stop lying down in your bed and worrying and wondering and GET UP AND MAKE A MOVE! DO SOMETHING! I love the spirit of the leprous men in 2 Kings 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
They came to their senses and recognized that FAVOUR COMES BY MOVING - BY DOING SOMETHING! DOING SOMETHING NOW! TAKING RISKS TOO!
Don't expect a business loan to come to you if you keep that business dream in your head and not put pen to paper and make a business plan and take it to a banker or a private investor. Don't expect to ever get someone to give you private funding if you don't talk and say whats on your heart and pitch GOOD.
Do not be afraid of REJECTION! Do not be afraid of people saying NO! That's all apart of life. Every girl that I may be interested in may not accept me and just LOSE OUT BIG TIME, but one day, ONE WILL (or just maybe I'm already in love and you just don't know). When the time is RIGHT, I'll certainly put the ring on her finger and let the world know that I finally have a help meat - a gem - MY OWN PERSONAL SUPERSTAR. Someone that I worked HARD TO GET! Nothing good comes easily!
Over 6 years ago, a gentleman from the USA following all that I was doing as a little boy online because I've been writing and posting online since 2003. My business was about 5 years old then and he called my phone and said, "You know young man, I'm a little old gentleman and If I really had it, I would invest all I had in your business. I wish I had your energy and charisma and ideas when I was younger and now I wouldn't be here in the doldrums of my senior years of life. I can see that you will reach very far in life. I may not be alive to see it, but continue to trust in GOD and you will reach far and for as long as I live, I will continue to follow you in St. Kitts because you are my daily inspiration."
His last words to me have forever stuck with me and I practice them daily. I actually consider them the best marketing tip I have ever received. He said, "You know, NEVER STOP REACHING OUT TO GET BUSINESS AND FUNDING. 10,000 will say no, but all you will ever need is for 1 person to say yes."
Honestly friend, the words of this United States of America citizen who never even gave me his name or has ever called again play daily in my ear. (I wish if he's still alive and reading this, that he'd call or even email so he can see that I took his advice to heart.)
This is honestly what drives me daily to write so much and market so much. The words of a senior citizen from The United States of America. Many a times, at least for me, the little things people say and do mean much more than the big things of life that cause so much stress.
It's not every global email brings me business though or a ministry donation, but what I am certain about is that every global email or blog entry that I write at least blesses ONE person who reads it one of the 50 languages my writings are translated into and sent around the world. The fact that one reads and is blessed - that means the world to me. NOT MONEY, but being a BIG BLESSING TO AT LEAST ONE PERSON.
Agitate If You Want Better! The Lord Is A Man of War - Exodus 15:3
Don't expect to ever be out of financial problems if you don't swallow your pride and go and talk to a bank or several bankers until they can refinance. Don't expect your children to become any better if you see them turning out to be drug pushers and prostitutes and you sit idly by and not say a word because that's the same life you lived when you were younger and you don't know how to be UPFRONT AND TELL THEM OF YOUR MISTAKES so they can learn and not walk in your shoes.
If you want a difference in your life or the lives of your loved-ones, YOU HAVE TO AGITATE! DO SOMETHING!
Agitate If You Want Better! The Lord Is A Man of War - Exodus 15:3
In the passage of scripture under review today, Moses, a man set apart and called by God (who we call today a PASTOR or LEADER) was adamant that Pharoah let God's people go. He was tired of the injustices and victimization being meted out to God's people and he let his following know OUTRIGHTLY that God wasn't any JOKEY GOD. He was a GOD OF WAR! A FIGHTER! A WARRIOR! Moses, with the help of GOD was willing to GO ALL THE WAY to save and help his people - like a CRAZY MAN!
Let me be clear! That particular scripture never suggested that GOD used artillery weapons at all, but what it suggests in a nutshell is that GOD IS ALWAYS AN OVERCOMER! HE ALWAYS COMES OUT ON TOP AND VICTORIOUS!
The question now is - Who's side are you on? The Pharoah? Or God's Moses?
Nothing good comes easily! Agitate If You Want Better! The Lord Is A Man of War - Exodus 15:3
Hope is ahead for you once you AGITATE!
