What is risk?

Edited by Folasade Afe

Message by Apostle Abraham  Oyeniyi

Risk is a term or a language commonly used by the business men and women and especially investors. They understand this as taking advantage of an opportunity without  minding the lose or gain it may cost you.

So risk is seen as an opportunity and taking every  possible means  within your reach to achieve its benefit.

For instance, you over  heard that there is always scarcity of fuel at a particular period and such a period is at hand, then you get  the means  of buying  fuel by keeping it in your custody pending  the time  of the scarcity; either  you borrow the money as loan or you  dispose  a property in order to invest  into this business, it is  a “Risk” taking  on your side.

Why it is  a risk is that, it can  favour you or bring you down because there is no much  assurance or certainty of the end of the deal, until the end comes. Such us risk has no rest for its  taker until the end comes.

When you are taking risk as a  wise  one, the best  thing you can  do is to consult  the expert  in the field and make  research  on that particular  product and its validity.

Again, when government policy  disfavours such business, risk  taker is on his own. Just like smuggling of contraband goods is to the investors lose if  caught.

What is Faith?

Faith is the code and conducts of God  for  any one  who wants to be in good order with God.

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb.11:1. Faith  is a spiritual  language  implore  in communicating with God for a better relationship.

Faith  is of God and  it is  a force given to men by God to push or pull anything to man’s desirable position. “But  without faith, it is impossible to please Him: for he that  cometh to God  must believe that He is, and that He is a reward of them that  diligently seek Him.” Heb. 11:6

If faith  is only  the weapon or device a man can deploy  to please God, then let  us check what the Bible says about the ability of faith to succeed at every  effort assert to bring a desirable change to every situation.

“For  verily I say  unto you. That  whosoever  shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and  be thou  cast into the sea;  and shall  not doubt  in his heart, but shall  believe  (have faith) that those things which  he saith  shall come to pass;  he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark11:23.

As  far as faith is  concern there is no lose. Faith gets  every mountain moving. Faith  can bring  water from the rock, faith makes a woman at her  menopause  to give birth to children even without menstrual period, faith makes  the dead to rise back to life,  faith brings money out of the mouth of  fish, faith can dance and sing for joy even in sorrow and at the end of the  day, joy will come. “… weeping may endure for a night, but joy  cometh  in  the morning.” (Ps.30:5).

Faith has rest

:For we which have believed ( have  faith) do  enter into  rest –Heb. 4:3.

There is always rest of mind for those who have faith. Age and time notwithstanding, all that they  believe God  for  shall surely  answer to them. Unlike  risk  that has no rest of mind for its taker until the end comes, faith gives rest to the believer  even  right from  the beginning  of the process. Reason is that faith is an  assurance that what  you believe God for is settled  already. (Heb.11:1)

Faith  makes you to see the Glory of God

“Jesus  saith unto her, said I not unto the, that if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory  of God?” (Johin 11:40).

There is  always  the revelation of the glory of God to those  that believe at the end of their faith in God as reward of their speaking  God’s language (faith).

The glory of God is also the manifestation of  the power of God. When a man  believes God, God reveals Himself  to that person, He  also solves all his problems  by His  own power. The  reason is that, faith  joins  the hand of man with God so that  man may not fall. Faith also join the hand of man with God so that  God  can lifts  such a man to the highest  top he can never reach by his own power and wisdom.

Dear, are you also living  by risk today? You risk the marriage partner you married, risk the work you are doing risk the friends you keep, risk the food  you eat and even risk  your life. If you  live your life in risk, you  will jeopardize it at  the end in hell fire.

Risk is a game of luck,  like playing lotto, I think you can see the end of this game, satan is the father of risk but God is the Father  of faith. As you live in risk, you play with satan  but  if you can put your life in the hand of God, obey His  commandment, speak the same language with Him, then you will laugh last as Abraham and Sarah did over their challenges (Gen. 17:17, 18:12,21:6). Faith always laughs last. Are  you ready  to join this  assurance trip? The  simple  instruction is this: “that  you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be  saved” (Act.16:31).

“For God  so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever beliveth in Him should not perish, but have  everlasting life.”  (John 3:16). You only need to believe in Jesus and follow Him as Aliquran also confirmed this.

“Behold! Allah  said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself (death and resurrection) and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I  will  make  those ‘who follow thee superior to those who reject Faith, to the Day  of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto Me, and I  will judge between you of the matters wherein ye  dispute.

“As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with severe chastisement in this world and  in the Hereafter nor will they have anyone  to help. “Quran 3:55-56 (Surat Almran).

Therefore, are you ready to believe and follow this Jesus Christ? Pray this prayer of faith with me “Lord Jesus,  I believe that God sent you as a mercy unto the world and as the Saviour. I  have  come to God through you today.  Forgive all my sins, remove my name from the book of hell, and write my name in the  book of life, make me a born again child of God. Thank  you Father  for accepting me. (Amen).

Congratulations! You  have left the lane of risk for assurance of faith now. I wish you best in life. Join any Bible believing, teaching and doing  church of God, keep the  fellowship of the Spirit and remained blessed.
