3 ways God made an example about Trevor Noah’s life

Imagine being a young, coloured South African boy born in the Apartheid era to a black mother who had to pretend not to know you in public and a coloured father.

Fast-forward to 19 years later, and you’re now a multimillionaire, earning in dollars, wining and dining with the likes of Jay Z and Beyoncé, and have just hosted the most important awards in the music industry, The Grammy awards 2021. This is the life of Trevor Noah and you should read it to get some assurance about your life and how God is constantly working behind the scenes in your favour.

It does not matter where you come from- he will take you to the world

The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you. "I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; -Genesis 12:1

South African comedians rarely make it out of South Africa, so for Trevor to end up in the hub of the entertainment industry, with such a successful career and fulfilling life is proof that God will take you wherever you need to be!

He will prepare you for your destiny

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.- Ephesians 3:20-21

Trevor Noah is known for making some of the best jokes about America’s former president Donald Trump. Apart from being naturally smart, Trevor has always had a keen interest and above average knowledge of politics. Whilst still in South Africa, he still made jokes about Julius Malema, Jacob Zuma and the political world in general. By the time he landed in America, he could already navigate around issues like race, Donald Trump and the system. This goes to prove that wherever you are right now, it is exactly where you are meant to be. Take in the training, embrace your surroundings and it will not be long before God places you in a place that he as always prepared you for it. And for that, you will surely succeed.

Your Story is meant to bless others

“And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, and make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing”;- Genesis 12:2

Currently, the Trevor Noah foundation is involved in initiatives that promote gender equality and funds programs to foster women’s empowerment. Furthermore, he has raised R10 million for pandemic relief in South Africa. He has partnered with Microsoft to work with South African schools to ensure that pupils have access to a safe schooling experience.

Finally, he has partnered with New Nation School, ensuring that undocumented children have access to quality education mainly because they are not immigrants by choice.

So I hope you can see that your hardships, lessons and successes don’t just happen for the sake of it. Trevor Noah’s journey has enabled so many people to remember that a career in comedy can take you as far as you want to go! It has also reminded mixed-race children, or black children that their talents are just as valid, despite the challenges. May you never forget that!
