Sometime last month, I had a huge burden
for my only brother.
I hadn't spoken with him in a while,
but it kept coming so strongly, so I decided to pray it out.
Day after Day it got stronger, at midnight i
would pray and groan in the spirit about him...
So, I reached out to him on a Friday night and like
the typical elder sister I am, before he would say
I abandoned him I accused him already of
He said no I didn't abandon you, I have been going
through a lot. So I told him; I know about it, I have
carried a strong prayer burden about you for days,
I don't know what it is, but I have prayed and prayed
it out in the spirit, yet it is not going, so will you tell
me about it?
He told me a few things and mentioned also his project supervisor frustrating him.
His work had delayed because the man promised
to frustrate him, no one could help him out.
In the midst of that his laptop and phone crashed
the evening of that day, everything he worked on was
lost and he had a sort of presentation to do the next day Saturday.
He was so perplexed.
So, I told him we will pray and God will handle it.
I assured him I would be up
at midnight to handle it on my knees and I needed
him to calm all the way down and find some way to
still, prepare for the presentation. He was encouraged
and I ended the call.
I prayed that night and moved on the following day to
discover the burden was lifted.
At night I called to ask how did it go? He said something unbelievable happened today...
His supervisor didn't show up and then another senior
the lecturer asked what he was working on and the
progress of his work, he told the man he hadn't
made any progress because the supervisor kept
trashing his work, so the man went through it and
told him he was doing a great job and that he should
do his presentation in the absence of the supervisor
and him (the man) and his other colleagues would help
He presented that day and we thanked God.
When Mr supervisor returned he was still pouring
out hail and brimstone over my brother's project.
From the last time I prayed and felt the burden lifted
I didn't pray about it again. In the midst of this,
unknown to us, this supervisor had previously
gotten into trouble with the university authorities
and strangely the case was revisited afresh and so
he had a lot of running around to do to save himself.
I called my brother last week to ask how far
He said the man had to leave school.
He has a new supervisor and his work is going
He kept saying Sister thank you! I told
him we had to thank God for the intervention.
All of this happened in a space of 3 to 4 weeks.
If you walk with God by covenant people need to
be careful what they do to you and to people
connected to you.
Now, when God would destroy Sodom and
He saved Lot because He remembered Abraham
Lot and Abraham were family.
Lot's spirituality wasn't what saved him,
of Abraham his Uncle.
Can your family leverage on your spirituality
with God? Or you are just faking "spirri"
up and down and you have no depth.
Can God deliver them because he remembered you?
Can you stand in the gap and deal with the devil
on their behalf? Think on these things.

So Sunday service in my parish was going on as it
The pastor and all the ministers were well dressed
and radiating the glory of God!
The Assistant Parish pastor was celebrating a career
Daddy G.O preached blessed us all on live TV
Testimony time came
Birthday celebrants kicked it off! Someone got a
promotion, someone’s business was restored,
mighty but the usual taken for granted random stuff
Then an Elder stood up, he started testifying
about his niece!
His niece had been married for fifteen long years
and had a son
Then she went to Gbagada general hospital for
medical check-up last week Tuesday because
she was feeling a little weak! The doctor did his
test and she was immediately taken to the theatre
She was delivered of a 7months, 2 weeks old baby boy!
She didn't know she was pregnant
Nobody knew she was pregnant!
They didn't have baby things!
The husband was shocked and bemused!
The whole church went along with joy.
I checked my phone and there she was on my
Whatsapp, sister R, her prayer request was for God
to give her a second child dated September 17 2018
I didn't say a word! Service ended! Sister R called me
to share her testimony, I didn't let her land!
I told her the whole story! She was shocked!
How did you know everything to the last detail?
Are you human? She asked
I said ”your Uncle worships in my parish
and had testified”
She said: (She was from another denomination)
my uncle had invited me to your parish for prayers
but my husband didn't want me going to places
I didn't know you were the same person I was
talking to on twitter! Lord Jesus!
The doctors diagnosed her condition as
”Rhesus Factor related”! They told her she will never
have another child!
God put a baby in her womb and even she didn't
She said ”My tummy didn't grow and I didn't feel
pregnant! Brother Gbenga, I saw my period
I just sat there! As perplexed as the man by the
The changer of every story!
He made the one without a womb to carry and
He made another one a mother overnight!
This morning, I am saying ”Ride on, Ride on, in majesty!
My Jesus, My King!”

There is a greater and higher
There is a bond forged so strong
There is a man whose love is not bound by time
There is a man who loves regardless
I've tried all I can to find love
I've searched and dreamt of love
I practised what it feels like for the kind
of love, I dream of
Lately, I'm coming to the knowledge of a
greater than I
I don't yet have my desired love
But daily as I lean into him he shows me
more of his person
His love is all encompassing and borderless
His love does not suddenly come and disturb
the equilibrium of life as I know it
His is a euphoric kind of love
I open up like flower petals after a long stormy night
And always when the night comes and causes a closing
of the flowers I can't wait for the first drop
of dew to bask in his love all again
My prayer is still kind of mechanical
But there are glimpses of his love that holds me
put and I find myself wanting to spend forever on
Then the cares of the world come crashing and
And vamoosed just like that I'm earthed
Dear Lord, sweet holy spirit, Lord Jesus it can't
always be like this
I want a new narrative
I want the whole deal
Plunged in his blood
Washed in his blood
Resting in his love
All for his love
A love that never grows cold
A love as old as time

I was once in a Sunday service
Worship was going on
The presence of the Holy Spirit was so heavy
One choir member froze, she couldn't move
Others members were praying in the spirit
Many were crying
The choir leader walked towards the frozen one
She tapped her on the shoulder trying to get her
to come back to consciousness and sing
As soon as her hand touched the frozen one
It was as if she touched a live wire!
She flew from the altar and landed
on the choir stand
A distance of about 100 meters
It was scary!
Then she started to scream and cry!
Service couldn't continue
Her husband was watching her in awe
The pastor was watching her in awe
Nobody wanted to touch her
At the back of everybody’s mind was that
thought ”What if I touch and get arrested
like this too?”
It was wonderful
I carried her to the Pastor’s office! Her husband
stayed with her throughout the service!
She was totally taken over for hours
By 6pm I went to pay her family a visit!
We prayed together
The spirit lifted!
The impact of that experience turns her
Christianity around forever
She became a teens church teacher with fire
in her bones!
Stubborn teens were brought to her from all
She would lay hands on them and get them
filled with the Holy Ghost
She came to the place of understanding that
the gospel is not in mere words but in power!
For our gospel came not unto you in word only,
but also in POWER , and in the Holy Ghost,
and in much assurance; as ye know what manner
of men, we were among you for your sake.

Before knowing Jesus Christ, I used to do a lot of
dark things. I was addicted to alcohol,
fornication and smoking weed to a greater degree.
There was this specific day
that I went into my normal drinking spree with friends.
I was still on Campus then.
I started to take alcohol as my usual routine when
lectures, it was on a Friday.
That specific day I took alcohol more than
12 hours and took drugs but was not even high.
I went to my room at around 7:20pm to take dinner.
After eating I was to attend a friend’s night party,
but decided to take a nap.
While relaxing in my bed at around 8 pm, there was
such a presence in the house that I have never seen
in my life.
I could clearly feel the presence of someone in the
room even though I was alone.
And there Jesus appeared to me.
I couldn’t see him physically but I knew He was the one.
I know you might be wondering how it happened,
but brethren when Jesus comes to you , you
will automatically know He is the one.
I knew he was Jesus and never questioned
He showed me his love and unfolded my filthy life to me.
I was very filthy and unworthy before our Lord but Jesus accepted me as I was.
Romans 5:8 "While we were still sinners, Christ died for us"
Yes, Jesus loves us so much.
We conversed with Him for over an hour or so and told
me to leave EVERYTHING! I was reluctant to leave my life
and questioned Him on how I was going to leave
He clearly said to me this strong word that has ever
remained in my life until now.
I WILL GUIDE YOU, I WILL HELP YOU.
Many things happened but let me just sum it up.
My life took a turn and Jesus became everything to me.
I decided to FOLLOW JESUS AND NO TURNING BACK.
My dear brother and sister, you can make JESUS your
life by just believing in him just as I did. Romans 10:9
says if you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"
and believe in your heart that God raised him
from the dead, you will be saved.

The things God has done for me are countless
He is a Mighty and awesome God.
Just a few weeks ago I fell sick suddenly, later on after
the treatment I was told my sugar levels was low,
and I didn't have a pulse!
I could not breathe properly and I began to tell God
"is this how I am going to depart? God, I have not finished my assignment.
The Name Jesus raised me from that sick bed.
He Has done so much for me.
Glory to The Most High God.
