The new Nigeria will be for only the strong, because it is only the strong that can walk by faith and not by sight. It’s only the strong that can continue to insist on doing the right thing when everyone else is doing wrong. It’s only the strong that can decide to keep speaking what they want even when the surrounding circumstances say otherwise.
The word of God has been put in our hearts and minds, let us use the word. The word of God is spirit and life. The word of God gives life to dead situations. It is with the word of God that God Himself gave form to a formless earth. It is with His word He brought us salvation. It is with His word Nigeria will be rebuilt.
As we have seen over time, God has always relied on humans to be the voice of His word. The Saints of God (those who have received Jesus Christ) are the voice of God’s word here on earth. It is the Saints that God gave dominion to tend to this world.
For even the whole creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship. Romans 8:19 [AMP].
The world is waiting expectantly for us to manifest ourselves as sons of God. We have to step up and realize that we were brought into the kingdom for such a time as this. You were wondering, “Why on earth would God put me in this Nigeria?” Well you have your answer: you were put in Nigeria for such a time as this.
So its time to stop complaining and get to work. Its funny how people say ‘its not all about prayer’ or ‘we have prayed enough.’ We never think that way when we’re seeking something of a personal nature like a job or house. We can walk by faith for the impossible when we are seeking employment in impossible circumstances but we can’t spare prayers for Nigeria.
Saints of God, its time for us to go into every sector we have been called into and revive creation, give life to this nation, to this world. Stop complaining and analyzing, and start praying, speaking and acting.
So man-made traditions and customs are not all bad, but what of when we esteem them higher than the word of God. The culture of the kingdom of God supersedes any man-made culture. Once we see that the word of God says something contrary, we should drop them immediately. Imagine being a Believer, a part […]

I know right, what a sensational headline. “Christianity is senseless.” Anyone throwing stones yet and calling me a heretic? Calm down will you? Don’t act as if you haven’t noticed that the ways of God don’t make sense at all. Erwin McManus once said “Faith is nonsense,” I want to take it a step further and say Christianity is senseless.
It doesn’t make sense for a man to think he can part the red sea with a staff. I mean have you seen the red sea? Its kind of huge; but Moses parted it with the staff God gave him. It doesn’t make sense for a guy to spend years of his life building an ark for a flood when he had never seen a drop of rain; but Noah built the ark, as instructed by God and the flood came.
It doesn’t make sense that a boy who was sold into slavery would eventually become the prime minister of Egypt. I’m talking about a servant, I’m talking about a slave; but Joseph became the prime minister of Egypt. It doesn’t make sense that a Jew would preach Jesus right in Ceasar’s household; I mean how does that even happen? Paul did it.
See what I mean? Christianity is senseless. Nothing about the life of God makes sense to the human mind. I guess that’s why Paul said its foolish to man. I mean look at the gospel; how does it make sense that a person can be translated from death to life by the proclamation of news? It doesn’t, but that’s how God chose to save humanity.
I guess all I’m saying is a lot of times, the instructions He gives us and the paths He leads us through may not make sense momentarily, but just follow Him, it all adds up. We don’t have to understand His leading or have it all calculated, but just trust that He knows what He’s doing.
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:11 [MSG].
God knows what He doing. He’s charting the course of your life brilliantly in ways that, of course, don’t make sense. But trust Him always. So Christianity is senseless because this eternal life doesn’t rely on sense knowledge but on spirit. Don’t try to understand anything God tells you to do, just obey and turn off the sense.

Yesterday was May 1st which happens to be workers day. Everyone who is the labor market reminds themselves of what they do and why they do it. But do we know why we do it? Do we know why we work?
For me the actual definition of ‘work’ is what God gives you to express The Blessing, that is, what He has put within you. The dictionaries would tell you that work is an activity you do to earn money; not really.
Adam, before the fall, had work. Was he doing it to earn money? Of course not, he had everything he needed provided for him. He worked because it the way to express The Blessing God put within Him in Genesis 1:28. Honestly a job is just a system of the world that makes you toil to scrap a living, but work? That’s different.
Our after the fall of man, and after we have received salvation is to add value to our realm with what God has put in us. Will we be rewarded financially for the value we add? Of course we will, but that’s not you primary focus. The salary from your job, by the way, isn’t your source of livelihood; The Blessing of God that has been made available to us through Christ is our source.
“Let the thief steal no more, but rather let him be industrious, making an honest living with his own hands, so that he may be able to give to those in need.” Ephesians 4:28 [AMP].
Our salary isn’t our source, it actually serves better use as what we should give to people in need. God’s master is for us to trust Him for our daily needs, daily. I know its hard, especially when you’ve always trusted in a salary and you have mouths to feed, but its easier to trust someone you know.
“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 [AMP].
Trust God with all your heart, because that’s the only way to trust Him. But you’ve got to know Him to trust Him; and you can know Him by looking into His word. When you trust Him, you’ll be able to rely on Him for your provision and sustenance, and you’ll be able to focus on giving expression to The Blessing of God inside you and add value to this world.
