lessons from my hair comb

Sometime last year, about September or there about, after a very long time I had my hair cut down (unusually) to the lowest. I obviously wore a new and different look that attracted varying opinions from people. Some opined I looked really ugly and asked why I cut down my hair. Others were of the opinion that I looked a lot better and more mature. I remember I made a post about human beings having different opinions about whatever you do in life. That’s all in the past anyways.

When I first cut down my hair last year, I remember I could just take a shower, apply some cream on my hair and off I go without needing to comb or brush. As weeks went by, I had to start using a hair brush to keep my hair neat because it was gradually growing back. Months rolled by, my hair brush could no longer do the job, I needed to start using a small comb. I’ve had to change the size of comb I use on my hair twice as time went by.

Fast forward seven months later, precisely last week, I tried using the same comb I have used for some weeks now to comb my hair, I realized I was struggling to thrust the comb through my hair strands. My hair had actually outgrown the comb. I had to stop by at a shop to buy a bigger size of comb last weekend. Yes! I don’t wish to cut down the hair soon. lol!

As usual someone might be wondering why “why does he have to share this with us?”

This morning while I was combing my hair with my new comb, the Holy Spirit dropped a message in my heart.

A lot of people grow in hair size and get a bigger comb, people grow bigger in size and get bigger clothes, people grow in appetite and start consuming bigger food quantity, people grow in income and increase the standard of their living, BUT many people grow in age and still refuse to grow in their habits and life style.

Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:11

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

Some of us have become men but have refused to put away childish things. There are certain things God will never put in your hands until you drop certain habits and life styles. There are certain platforms and places God will never allow you step into because you have not earned his trust yet.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:6 New International Version (NIV)
“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces”

As I speak to you I speak to myself too. God has destined many of us for Royalty but some of us are still playing loyalty to mediocrity. Until you put away certain habits, life styles and relationships, you just may never smell your God given destinies. Don’t only change your comb as your hair grows, change your choices as your age grows. Step into your destiny. It’s in your hands.
