Pray and wait or work and pray for miracles (2), By Sunday Adelaja
These three laws of motion explain to us WHY OUR WORLD IS CREATED TO FUNCTION BY...


Our world is supposed to function 100% by laws of nature

I personally believe that the probability of miracles is only 2%

Newton’s First Law of Motion According to Isaac Newton’s first law of motion, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force

To convert that to our everyday life, everything in your life would remain the same, meaning that our continent will remain at the stage of under development until we do something about it

You will not witness new things

No progress, no success, no good news, no surprises, no breakthrough, until you apply some forces to make things happen

That is how life was made to function

This is how the earth was created to function

Every object which could be everything in your life, would either remain static or it would continue moving in the same vicious circle, unless you act

So sometimes, we are asking God to do something for us, whereas God is waiting on us to simply act

Why things don’t change in your life is because, you have not acted enough

Why you are not experiencing something new in your life, is because you have not done something in the real world, to make things happen

Notice that in that first law of Newton, an object would remain in a state of rest unless an external force is applied

You need to do something in the external world, no matter what you have done in the spirit

No matter the amount of prayers you have done, external actions are required for change to occur in your life

So when we go to church to pray, believe and hope, we would nevertheless need to act in the physical realm for us to experience something new in our lives

ORA ET LABORA, when we pray, compliment your prayer by going to work

Newton’s Second Law of Motion Newton’s second law of motion says the vector sum of the external forces F on an object is equal to the mass m of that object multiplied by the acceleration vector a of the object: F = ma

What this simply means is that the amount of speed produced by the moving object, is equal to the amount of force or push been applied to it

That is, the greater the weight of the object been accelerated, the greater the amount of force needed to produce the speed

To even make it simpler, this law says, result is only equal to the amount of force applied

The result is always correspondent to the effort applied

So, I cannot hope to get a big result by putting up just a small effort

If I need a breakthrough result, blessings or miracles in my life, I must put in a corresponding amount of work

It is not fair to try to get something for nothing

God did not make the earth to work that way

He does not want some to do all the work and for others to get all the gains

That would not be fair even in Gods eyes, though he loves you

“All growth depends upon activity

There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.” —Calvin Coolidge The result has to correspond with the effort applied

That is to say, if it takes a level ten degree of effort to get a level ten level of promotion, then only level ten degree of effort would produce such result

I cannot put in level two degree of effort and expect to get level ten promotion

It would not be fair because, other people are doing what is required

But apart from that, God has made nature to work by objectivity

God has programmed justice in nature and the laws of nature would block it if you try to bypass justice

It won’t work

The laws and nature itself would be against you

That is why there is no amount of prayers we would pray or fasting we can do to produce the kind of results that require our own efforts and investments

The laws of nature are also spiritual because they are God’s laws too

Africa must learn this lesson for us to make a significant progress going forward

Our churches must stop separating the church from the issues of national development

We must stop telling people that they only serve God through the fivefold ministries

We serve God in everything we do as long as we seek to bring Him glory

Let’s try and bring God glory by developing Africa

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do

So throw off the bowlines

Sail away from the safe harbor

Catch the trade winds in your sails



Discover.” ― H

Jackson Brown Jr

Newton’s Third Law of Motion Newton’s third law of motion states that when one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body

In a layman’s language this law will sound simply as “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

This means that for every force, there is a reaction that is equal in size, but in the opposite direction

Meaning whenever an object pushes another object, it automatically pushes back in the opposite direction, equally as hard

How do we apply this third law in our daily life

This is the law that is responsible for the philosophical teaching of cause and effect

For me to expect something to happen, I must have done something

That is to say everything I do produces some results either of equal proportion or of higher proportion

But if I don’t do anything nothing happens

There must be a reason for my expectations

I don’t have the right to expect anything unless, I have set something in motion to later produce the result I am expecting

If there is no cause there would be no effect

If I didn’t sow anything, I should not expect to reap

Anything I do would produce either a similar reaction or greater reaction

“You are where you are right now because of the actions you’ve taken, or maybe, the inaction you’ve taken.” ― Steve Maraboli The laws of cause and effect states that what you have today, is as a result of what you either did yesterday or what you refused to do

It is like the law of sowing and reaping

To reap I must sow

When I sow I would either get something at least to the size of what I sowed, but normally more

All actions produce reactions; either an equal or more reaction

The same thing would happen in my relationship with people

Jesus said, “If anyone slaps you on one cheek turn the other.” Why is Jesus saying this

It’s because if you don’t obey the law of the kingdom, which is to turn the other cheek, the next thing is that you will begin to have natural reaction, which would be to return the action

But most of the time you want to do it more

Meaning the natural tendency will be for you to slap the person back, but normally you slap back not once like he slapped you, but you want to slap him back several times

So it’s always of more or equal reaction

You hardly ever get back the amount you sow, you always get more back

The same thing with good
