OUR DAILY MANNA 30TH JULY 2020 – “I WISH THE JOURNEY WAS SHORTER…EASIER!.”
It was Epictetus who said: “The greater the difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it. Skilful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.” Exodus 13:17 says, “And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, ‘Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt.”
So God did not lead the Jews through the NEARER or EASIER ROUTE! He chose a longer and more dangerous route! Wow! What a God! He does allow some hard storms in order to train your arms to war. Oh! In this my lifetime, I have seen wars and storms! I am the only pastor in my country that have been taken to court by someone who claimed that she fell at our WORLD ANOINTING NIGHT service which held at our National Stadium.
She claimed 25 million naira (62, 500 dollars) for 7 teeth she claimed she had broken at the stadium! Yet, I never knew her from Adam. Also, maybe I am the only pastor too, whose phone had deliberately been hijacked/taken away and hacked by those I trusted to handle it while I was ministering on the altar.
That was trust betrayed bitterly! It was later discovered that, that wicked operation was masterminded in a 3-year plan by a syndicate of four people – a male journalist, a male lawyer, a female staff who handled our videos/ extracts from my working phone sometimes for Sunday screen teachings, and a deacon. They cloned my voice and said that unless I gave them my house and 200 million naira (about 500, 000 dollars), they would scandalize my name through various fabrications using my cloned voice. In fact, they started the process in order to show me how serious they were! I was in shock but quickly alerted the police!
The police gave my security team devices to record their demands and threats! Thank God, they were arrested and sent to court/jail till they were bailed. Oh, space and time would fail me to mention various other harsh betrayals and bitter disappointments from wicked souls. I have been lied against and there is NOTHING that has not been written or said about me by envious enemies! Ah! Many times, I cry out to God and wish that my pathway to greatness was EASY! But we don’t choose our crosses! They choose us!
