Do What You Have To Do

Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, "Arise and eat." 1 Kings 19:5 NKJV
People eat to get strength. That is why you went to study. To get the knowledge required to run in life. You have done well for yourself.
Eat! Your life is a journey. You will need a lot of strength. Food is not one of many options, it is key for survival.
Read! Read books that will make you grow in knowledge. Life will ask you questions as you progress. You need knowledge to respond.
Invest! Invest in yourself. Go to quality schools. Learn to read and write. In the world of today, it is basic.
Eat, I mean try to get a university degree. It seems to be the least that would be expected from anyone in the near future. Do not just lay down there. It is too early in your life to be idle. Stuff yourself up.
Eat! The angel gave Elijah food and advised him to eat. He would need the food for the journey.
Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. 1 Kings 19:6 NKJV
At least he had eaten something. He laid down and continued his rest. So, you already have a First School Leaving Certificate and you think you have eaten enough? You just want to enjoy your life. So, you just have the Secondary School Certificate, and you think that's all that matters, you don't want to go further? You have a first degree and you say, "That's all, I'm done with studying. Now, all I want to do is to make and spend money like the others."
And the angel of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, "Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you." 1 Kings 19:7 NKJV
But everyone one else are already settling down? My mates are already getting married. They are getting good jobs already. They are driving big cars around the town. My mates, who do not even have my kind of degree, have gone far ahead. Why? Why is mine so slow? Why is life only giving me options to study more? Why must I go to school when I can sit home and manage my father's properties? Why must I go for a Masters and not a job now? Why does it seem like the next opening for me is a PHD when what I really desire is a wedding? Why must I spend the little money I have now to invest in myself when others are using theirs for overseas vacations?
Take heed to the voice of your angel. "Get up and eat some more, for there is a long journey ahead of you."
What is obtainable for you today is a perquisite for your journey tomorrow. Do not look at the other man. The only competition you have is you.
Then the angel of the Lord came again and touched him and said, "Get up and eat some more, or the journey ahead will be too much for you." 1 Kings 19:7 NLT.
