“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
I give praise to God for another cycle of life. This period is a milestone in my life, family and ministry. GOD picked me from the miry clay and made a meaning out of my life.
I grew up as a child hearing that it is impossible for a child of nobody to become somebody without the help of anybody. With a deep conflict and belief within me that I am not an accident to this world, I looked into the sky with all sincerity and spoke to God. I said: Lord, I heard that it is impossible for the son of nobody to become somebody without the help of anybody. I know nobody and my parents are also nobodies but I believe that if I know you, I have known everybody, Lord, can I know you? I heard His voice from within that said: yes, you can know me. Then I vowed that whatever it takes to know Him, I will do it. If there is any ladder to climb, I will climb it.
From that day, at the age of 13, I have become an addicted and unrepentant God-chaser till date. I have never looked back or reconsider for once in spite of the ups and downs along my way. I have lived my life for one thing; to serve His purpose whether as a slave in Potiphars house or as a king in the palace. He has in return, made a meaning out of this cheap life of mine. Whether He has turned me into somebody today or not, you can answer that.
I call on you today, to live your life for Him. God doesn’t use men, He builds men. God is not just concerned about you not going to hell or serving Him, He is majorly concerned about you as His son or daughter. You are not just one person among billions of other people on earth; you are actually one in billions, a special person at that. He knows your name and calls you by name. He wants you to have a meaningful life for that alone is what brings glory to His name.
May the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you.
