To whom much is given.
The power that has been given to us upon New Birth is mainly for the purpose of others.
When Jesus walked the earth, it was the same thing because He went about doing good and healing all manners of sicknesses and those possessed of the devil.
Why? For God was with Him.
The same applies to us as well. There’s an undisputed assurance that as we do as Jesus did, we begin to see that God is always with us.
Jesus said the same thing where He said “and lo I shall be with you till the end of days”.

The Light that Shines II
She had the look. The look of long suffering when you believe that all that one is suffering is as a result of a punishment from God.
Something was ravaging her body but no one could pinpoint it.
She had done tests and nothing was found.
In her mind, if this wasn’t a medical condition, it had to be spiritual so when she realized she was afflicted, she instantly believed God was punishing her for her past indiscretions.
If God was punishing her then his punishment was just and she had to bear it.

I look at people around me and I bless God for the wisdom and depth many of them carry.
Sometimes when I seat with older folks in ministry and life, I tend to listen more.
Do I have things to contribute as well? Definitely. However, it’s good to listen and learn.
If perhaps you know, there’s nothing wrong in learning more.
One disaster I’ve seen in humans is when they say: I KNOW.
It’s so bad for some that when you speak around them, they begin to pick what they disagree with what you’ve said.
Their minds are shut.

When Haman bright brought up the plan to annihilate the Jews, Esther didn’t get it.
Mordecai who’s had been a father figure in her life made her see the gravity of things when she gave an excuse using “protocol”.
Mordecai’s response was an eye opener.
“And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.”
Esther 4:13 NKJV
In order words, your status cannot protect you from what is coming.
But he didn’t stop there.

The more you get deeper in your walk with God, one of the things you begin to learn is the wisdom of silence.
It is pride and arrogance that wants to make us talk on everything and the effect is that more harm is done than good.
This story will put the above in perspective.
"Sir! She caused it. Her words are always scathing and I have cautioned her several times all to no result" He said.
His wife had reported him after he spoke some very dangerous words to her after which she was gripped with fear and anxiety following.

He was ins relationship with a lady whom he knew from his university days.
Not one of his friends liked her because they believed she was too possessive.
When she met him with friends, she would zone in on him and ignore the others.
When she saw him with another female...
... she was all over him trying to let the lady know that he was for her.
Whenever he was on a call for too long and laughing, she would snatch the phone say something rude and drop the call.
There was a time she did it but this time it was his Boss she spoke rudely to.

I used to belong to the mass choir of a church in the SW of Nigeria and it was a ministry that was used heavily by God.
I had a best friend and roomie who was also a worship minister like me.
Because of our youth and dynamism there was always a demand for us to lead.
The choir master preferred me so I got the lead regularly and my friend when I wasn't available.
Outside Ministrations started as well and the same thing happened to me; I was the choice pick.
My bestie and roommate started becoming cold towards me.

In 2019, I was in a vigil when the word came from God: Start a Gathering for the Saints where there would be teaching, healing and move of the Spirit.
The Spirit ensured that we started off from my parlour so we called it - The Parlour Chronicles.
I remember the first meeting. All we had was a keyboard, a ring light and my Apple Airpods.
We were 28 in attendance and it was a powerful meeting.
The second meeting was almost the same, but we grew in number.
I spent most of my growing up years in Oshodi and it was an environment where words were spoken with reckless abandon.
It was a place that was sometimes filled with too much anger, bitterness and disappointment so you want to put it on anyone.
Sometimes, parents would put it on their children and curses are established and patterns begin to operate.
So you see a child you knew growing up becoming a product of the words spoken to them.
It would take only the word of God to heal them - nothing more.

There are many quotes going up and down. One I have come across a lot is "Do what makes you happy".
That quote does not apply to a Believer who has the Spirit of God indwelling.
When you understand that your life was paid for by blood, you'll think twice.
It's a baby that puts everything in their mouth and the fact that sweet makes a baby happy does not mean you'll pack sweet and give the child.
You and I know the end result.
Look, certain actions we have taken all in the name of "it makes me happy" have led to many issues.

The story of Gomer in the book of Hosea is a testament that God gives second chances but when we've had a colourful past, it takes a lot for us to leave it.
It must have been hard for Hosea to accept a woman who was once a prostitute but he did because God instructed it.
Gomer would leave Hosea and go back to her past but Everytime she comes back, the Lord would have him take her back.
This act was symbolic of how God takes the children of Israel after they have gone back to their gallivanting with other idols.

A Gate and Many Sieges
Yesterday, we came to understand that there is nothing that God can do on earth without the willingness and availability of humans and this applies to satan and his minions.
Whereas God seeks permission, the enemy uses guile until he finds a human vessel.
It must have been a shocking thing for the devil to realise that despite his attempt at frustrating God's plan, God found another way - a woman to give birth!
Again, he laid a siege on the mind of Cain until he killed Abel even when God warned Cain.
Again, Adam knew his wife...

Sometime last year, December precisely, @AbrahamSpeak did a teaching on Woman. In the course of the teaching, he mentioned women are gates and it made so much sense.
Since last year, I have been keeping watching and seeking the heart of the Father on issues.
And as we prayed on Friday on the Battle Axe Platform, the word came: a special prayer for Women.
This morning, during the morning devotion, we read Genesis 29:31 : “When the Lord saw that Leah was unloved, He opened her womb; but Rachel was barren.

Of Hard Men and Love Languages.
A believer that is conscious of the divine life at work in him cannot claim to be a hard man.
Such a concept cannot exist when God is in you for His will and good pleasure.
The world has built stereotypes.
One of those stereotypes is Men should not show emotions as emotions are a sign of weakness.
This isn't true.
Jesus wept. His cousin Lazarus just died and it got to him.
Jesus mourned. His relative, John the Baptist was just beheaded and he left for a place to be alone.

When you see People walking in the supernatural and doing great things, ask yourself what they do.
Are they given to consistent prayer?
Are they given you consistent study of the word?
Are they given to consistent lifestyle of intercession?
Did you notice anything?
The key to the dimensions of the supernatural is consistency - nothing more.
Make out time to study and pray. Lagos is positioned to douse the fire of God but there are many ways to rule over that attack.
I'll share an experience that helped me.

My wife was dressed.
It was Sunday morning and though we lived in Abule Egba, our church was at Surulere.
The Lord instructed us to that church long before it was even built.
I'm sending someone through Gbenga who would give you an altar to preach and teach.
June 11, 2019.
So when my wife would see me dressed and looking at my phone, it was because I was booking a ride and the surge was crazy.
We would sigh and look silently to the Heaven and speaking with our hearts - When will this car come?

Over the years, I have come to see that not all contentions are an attack per se and also contentions can lead you to the place God wants you to be.
As a man that has experienced fierce contentions, I know how some of them profited me and made me stronger.
This was the story and case of Isaac.
Well that his father dug were closed and even after digging, he and his men were bullied out of that place.
Yet, he moved further.
To dig a well during a great famine is no mean feat! It would have taken days, weeks or months!
You are an example Sir! An example etched in experience and horned in the trials of life. I have been privileged to walk and work with you and again I say, YOU ARE AN EXAMPLE.
Many times, we see the business man and friend and even leader.
However, we sometimes fail to see that you are actually an anointed of God and you operate in a realm of power that many people have never experienced.
When God told me I would someone through Gbenga and you would give me a platform, I wondered who until we met.

Unforgiveness is a drainer and so is bitterness a consumer.
Envy can never prosper but make you myopic.
Rage weakens you from within.
Strife is an avenue for time to be wasted.
Jesus knew such things can be an issue so while He was here on earth He did something.
In Luke 4:18, Jesus said that the Spirit of God is upon Him to heal the broken hearted and proclaim liberty to the captive.
What are you captive to? Sickness? High blood pressure? Migraine? Weak heart?
The Spirit of God is ready to set you free from this bondage.

We can't as Believers on this new testament realities be sticking with certain thought patterns.
"Do me I do you, God no go vex".
At all. Let such not be found in us no matter how convenient it is paying back.
The words you speak matter a lot.
They are Spirit and they are life. When we are hurt, there is a natural tendency to what to retaliate or speak derogatory words to soothe our pain.
Even in marriage, this happens. You spouse would say something and the next thing is you're cursing.

Musings and Power Night.
Growing up, I was among those who criticised the Pentecostal movement. I was a Catholic but I didn't enjoy it much.
I felt everything was too organised and the rebel in me protested it.
I remember watching "Atmosphere for Miracles" and would talk...
Who is this man? All these fancy suits he is wearing? Why is he waving his hand and people are falling? Nigerians have started playing Hollywood with God in church.
What of "Insight for Living"? I didn't spare him as well. Oh! I said a lot and I relished it.
