A few minutes ago I concluded a transaction
at a bank
The polite lady that attended to me asked me
if i needed a photocopy of the teller.
She wanted to make one for me.
I shook my head.
I needed the photocopy but I don't like
taking advantage of people that way.
I know she was doing it for me based on
an issue she had recently which the
Holy Spirit helped her resolve.
I left the bank and started driving around
I needed to get those copies done
Eventually, i found a place
I parked and walked in
The photocopy was done
I paid and turned to leave
To my shock my legs were reluctant to move
They weren't stuck or heavy
I just suddenly didn't feel like leaving
So i started chatting up the guy attending
We had a general brother to brother talk
about his goods and their prices and
how he was coping with electricity issues
Suddenly the door opened and a woman
I was very familiar with and her two children
aged 13 and 9 walked in
I was working in the same office with her
husband until November last year
The Holy Spirit said "Bless them"
So I laid my hands on the two children and
As I said my goodbyes and turned to leave
The Holy Spirit said "She came to beg for
some money to buy food from the shop
attendant, don't let her beg"
Now, today is June 26!
Salary earners don't beg by this time of
the month but I also know His voice
I turned around and made a joke about
the children having grown so big that
one cannot give them a gift of
One thousand Naira anymore
So I emptied my pocket and shared all
the money i had on me between the
(Another woman was there, one of
those women who must capitalize to "beg",
I had to give her two thousand Naira)
Then i left as soon as I drove out of the
parking lot, my phone rang.
It was the lady whose children I blessed
She said "Brother Gbenga, we woke up
this morning with nothing to eat.
We didn't eat anything throughout yesterday
hoping my husband would come home
with some money!
So today i told the children to have their bath
I told them we would stroll around the
I used to have a shop here so i know
I am sure somebody will offer them some
Coke and biscuit and if nobody does, I was
resolved to beg for some help!
I had told God this morning to please not
let me beg!
I don't know how to do it, I have never
done it and I don't desire to do it, but i told
myself it is better to beg than starve my
God came through for me brother Gbenga
I didn't have to beg
The people in the shop looked at me with
envy after you left and they called my
The woman you gave some money said my
children attracted blessings to her and
I don't know what to say to this God!
He answers prayers o!
Thank you Jesus!
Ps: The testimony moved me to tears!
It affirms the fact that God hears all his
children and makes provision for all of
us but many of us don't bother to ask or
listen to him about who to give to!
We give but at our own discretion and not
as led by the Holy Spirit
If we all give as led, no believer will be hungry
or be in lack
It is critical that we have a relationship with
the Holy Spirit, that way we wouldn't go
about sowing "Battle Seed" to bloated
pretenders in the name of seeking
breakthroughs when all God desired of us
was to offer a helping hand to one of his
children in need!
This reminds me of a similar experience
I had on campus.
I was sent N100 from home (MONTHLY
stipend in those days! ).
I religiously removed N10 to go pay as
tithe in church.
On my way, I ran into a friend, Deji.
We got talking and the Holy Spirit told
me to give him the money!
My tithe! I argued within me! But He
My religious mind couldn't comprehend
why I should give my tithe to Deji!
Is he Melchizedek?
I wanted to leave, my legs refused to move.
I reluctantly removed the envelope from
my pocket and gave him.
"Deji, the Holy Spirit says to give you".
He took the envelope, counted the
He pocketed it, stared at me for a while.
Then he hugged me and broke down in
Deji's last meal was yesterday morning.
He said, he had prayed, "Lord, I need money
and I don't want to beg. I know you have
children on this campus aside me...
Please talk to one of them to give me money
without me asking!"
He had prayed that yesterday, went to bed
hungry, woke up prayed again
Then he started walking aimlessly around
the campus until we met.
It was 5pm, I was going to church for
I just went back to my room to process this.
I was shocked the Holy Spirit could ask
me to give my tithe to a man!
And I knew it was NOT wrong to do so.
That was 30 years ago, thereabouts.
That was the day I got delivered from
the spirit of "My Tithe Must Be Paid To
My Church" doctrine...
2 While they were worshiping the Lord
and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set
apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for
the work to which I have called them.”
3And after they had fasted and prayed,
they laid their hands on them and
sent them off.…
19 As Peter continued to reflect on the
vision, the Spirit told him, “Three men
are here looking for you. 20Get up!
Go downstairs and accompany them
without hesitation, because I have
29 The Spirit said to Philip, “Go over to
that chariot and stay by it.”
30 So Philip ran up and heard the man
reading Isaiah the prophet.
“Do you understand what you are
reading?” Philip asked.…
GSW's Notes: The Holy Spirit still
His voice is loud and clear
His sheep hear his voice daily
and they can never hear the voice
of a stranger
Stop running about looking for
people to hear for you
If you are a born again Christian,
it is your right to hear Him clearly!
