A keyboardist once lived who was endued by God to play in large Christian gatherings to bring down God’s presence. All through his life, he kept planning to learn and play a particularly difficult composition but always thought he still had time to do it.
One evening while alone in his study and fiddling with the keys on the piano, a man appeared before him and asked him to stand up from the piano. The strange man sat down and played that difficult composition effortlessly. When he stopped, he looked the keyboardist in the eye and said “I’m the man you were created to be. You failed God and your generation. Your nightfall has come and you will go into eternity unfulfilled.” The keyboardist was heart broken and swore to learn that composition. He didn’t, he died a few days later.
We all desire to live long, love, succeed and enjoy life. But, whatever we think, our night must fall! Soon. The problem: we don’t know when!
Are you very beautiful? Remember, you won’t be that way all through life. Gradually, night will fall on your beauty! It will fade!
Are you young and energetic? Everyday, your muscles weaken, nightfall beckons on you!
Are you a preacher, remember that every call and ministry is tied to GRACE and TIME. And these 2 will not always wait while you live carelessly and ignore God! Nightfall comes. Soon, God will raise men for the next generation!
Don’t wait till nightfall comes on your marriage before you address the problem between you and your spouse! While you delay to reconcile, the nightfall of divorce creeps in!
Remember: today is your daytime. And you have a mandate from God to fulfil: in your career, ministry, marriage, family, influence, etc. While you refuse to move forward, nightfall is moving forward, towards you!
Rise. Today. Do what you ought to do. What you have been created to do. Your beauty, opportunity, wealth, strength, grace and time won’t always be there.
NO MAN SHOULD BE THE MAN YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN. NIGHTFALL IS ON THE WAY! BUT YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN! RISE, WHILE IT IS DAY!
Yes, YOU CAN!
