An Ijebu man walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He tells the loan officer that he is going to Nigeria on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000. The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the Ijebu man hands over the keys and documents of new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produces the title and everything checks out.
The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank's president and its officers, all enjoy a good laugh at the Ijebu man for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the Ijebu man returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41. The loan officer says, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multi millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow "$5,000" ? The Ijebu man replies: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return!!" Blessed Are The Wise! They Won't Loose Their Heritage.


Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9.  Joshua was a young and vibrant man, who obeyed God and had the spirit of wisdom. Whenever he perceive what has been laid before him, he didn't allow anything get on his way and God continuously gave him an assurance which he believed. Many at times, we might become so afraid and scared of what truly lies ahead of us; our future, purpose, vision and mission.  But God is speaking to a heart this day, be strong and courageous. If the Lord didn't allow the Israelite to drown in the red sea, then you will not drown in any tribulation, trials or test you are facing. Be strong and courageous.  See also 2 Chronicles 32:7. God bless you.
