There is a strategy the Devil employs to render us ‘immobile’ in our entrepreneurial drive. And that strategy is for the enemy to confront and threaten us with statistics of the death of dreams and ideas of people who have gone in the path we have chosen to tread.
An Assyrian king, Sennacherib, used that exact strategy on Hezekiah, the king of Judah. Here is what he said: “Do you not know what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of other lands? Were the gods of those nations of those lands in any way able to deliver their lands out of my hand? 2 Chro.32:13.
But Hezekiah didn’t succumb! He trusted in God and He was helped.
Know this for a fact, if God puts an idea or a dream in your heart, the Devil will spring up all kinds of defeatist statistics to paralyse your pursuit or innovation regarding the dream or idea. He’ll make you see men that are more experienced and better educated than you are who failed at what you are attempting to do!
No matter the “correctness” of the Devil’s defeatist statistics, as long as you are sure you are carrying God’s dream, the verdict of failure concerning others must change with you!
