Preparation Precedes Performance

God has an eternal examination, which every man must sit for; a spiritual examination, which will put a Believer's spiritual life to test. In this examination, every man determines his performance, whether a pass, an average, a distinction or a failure. Lucifer and Adam failed this examination, You can also pass it.

- Your performance is determined by your preparation.
Your information intake is very important; it will determine your preparedness and performance in that examination.

Remember the parable of the Vine and the fig tree. Jesus said, "I planted my choice fig tree and fenced it round, (talking about the blessings and security God has put around you)." He also manure it (talking about the release of prosperity upon your life).
But He said, "These three years have I come, and instead of the grapes I expected, it produced wild grapes." He then decided to cut it off so that it does not encumber the ground.
"He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down." Luke 13 :6-9
The above parable is an illustration that the examination is a continuous exercise. Anyone that doesn't do well will be displaced. This time may be one more opportunity for you.

- Run to Him in desperate faith.
- Worship Him and serve Him joyfully and my God shall overwhelm you with His goodness.
