Whenever you think about your vision for a better world and conclude that you cannot achieve it. You are wrong because you have failed to account for the process of time. Your present self is too weak, poor and illiterate to really get anything done. However, in the process of time, anything is possible. Plato is usually credited with the quote: “Every king springs from a race of slaves, and every slave has had kings among his ancestors”. Helen Keller echoed this ancient wisdom when she included the following in her autobiography: “There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.”
The Mighty King David was the first in a line of Kings. His father; Jesse was never described as a king. A study of the lives and times of David reveals how much a person can change in the process of time. David was anointed early in life (definitely before his twentieth birthday), but he never really became a king in the true sense of it until he clocked thirty years old. So, David was anointed king of Israel and yet for over a decade, there was no physical manifestation of the vision. God gave grace to David and built him up in statue over time. David went from shepherd boy to mighty King in the process of time.
We overthink what we can accomplish within six months or a year and then underestimate what we can do within ten years. It is a blessing to be able to identify the evils in your world and desire a change. However, you should understand and accept that you cannot fix social and economic challenges overnight. Like King David, it might take you more than a decade to grow into the person that can get the job done. The hero’s journey of David is not special or unique. Anyone with a dream can exercise some faith and patience towards their vision. That is the way to obtain results. What you really have to do is to submit to God and be humble. He will give grace for you to succeed and he will build you up.
