Dan 11:32 And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God].
Isa 40:29-31 He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. [II Cor. 12:9.]
Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted;
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. [Heb. 12:1-3.]
Luk 22:35-36 And He said to them, When I sent you out with no purse or [provision] bag or sandals, did you lack anything? They answered, Nothing!
Then He said to them, But now let him who has a purse take it, and also [his provision] bag; and let him who has no sword sell his mantle and buy a sword
Dear All,
Happy New season to some, merry continuation of Season to others!
My excitement about this year is quite different from what I had known to feel at the beginning of each year. It goes beyond what my words can describe, in trying to put it in English, The first thing that came to my mind was “Matured Excitement” and then I began to realize that it is just more mature than physical senses then it had to be something beyond my natural sense and indeed a feeling in my spirit that my 5 physical senses cannot comprehend.
A few people had asked me what I sense the Lord is doing in this season, but only yesterday an older friend asked me and I said really rather jokingingly in my native language “…E je ka ba gbo emi loo…” meaning “…Let’s keep hearing the Spirit…”
Waking up into another day with my “Matured Excitement” I decided to put the things I sensed at the last few hours of 2012 on a blog!
The Holy Spirit began to roll the above scriptures in my heart and I paid attention to them like 3 days after and he began to say some things to me. (As I would always say, they are scriptures and as you read, you can also open your heart to him and let him speak to you and kindly feel free to share what he enlightens your heart with with me and people around you)
He said,
COVENANT” – that is a continuation from the last season. “EXPLOIT”… Birthing dimensions of the Spirit. Things that eyes have not seen and hears have not heard are made known by the Spirit. The Dimension of the Spirit…the wind blowing where in liseth…Understanding and walking according to the workings of the Spirit of God (Wisdon) within…
I would love to talk a little about that- You see in this new season or continuation of season, it would be paramount for us to do some thinking about the things that worked or are working in us according to the Spirit of God (I hope to God that understanding is granted our hearts to get that) For example, I was sharing with my sisters that the things that worked and are working for me in this season are things that I “unconsciously” stumble into by the Spirit. They are not things birthed from drawing up my goals or well laid out plans. They were things that fulfilled the scripture that you wont see rain or wind but surely the valley had not lacked water. SELAH. Contrary to years before where I would have used up 2 writing pads for the year, I used 13 pages this time but I paid attention and followed all he said to me….SELAH.
He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might he increseth strength (HIS WORKINGS)… Even the youths shall faint and be weary( The “know-hows” will fail, strategies would fail) and the young men shall utterly fail ( things that obviously should work, according to natural and obvious laws and principle would utterly fail) …but they that wait upon the LORD (they that know their GOD) shall renew their strength ( shall plug into the new methodologies, renew their “know-Hows”, the new ways and access the path of the workings of heaven) …they shall mount up with wings as eagles (new motion, new methods of movement) they shall run and not be weary ( with heavens new dimension and technologies there are no wearing out whatsoever)…and they shall walk and not faint (New strength, plugged into a different power source.)
Then lastly, The Luke 22 scripture has not been made totally clear to me (…we know in part) but for sure he gave instruction about the man with the pitcher and then he reminded them how the workings of the Spirit was when he sent them out…HE also said to them that same working would be made available when he is gone…But this time with a fresh instruction….But that same working, Like my Pastor declared…. THIS SAME JESUS!!!!!!!!
Finally, I belive so strongly that this year like never before we cannot afford to not be in the Center of His Will and all this workings is for the Knowledge of Jesus to fill the Earth as the water over the sea….IT’S HIS GLORY…Like Johnny Enlow said…IT’S DISRUPTING EVERYTHING!
Blessings, Opeyemi Latona
N.B: Romans 4 and Hebrews 4 are also Anchor Scriptures…( Confirmed in many ways) Don’t know if there is a significance of why they are “4”…Laughs!

He uses just about anything...

I just had some fun playing Panda game on my China made itel phone, popularly known as “Chinko”. To my utmost surprise I scored 445, making it my best score from the range of 45-60 in the last 3months I got the phone.
Having the highest score wasn’t so important because I played the game because I was bored at work, (don’t tell HR Manager pls) but the lesson I learnt is so important and could make a loser a champion overnight (am for real).
As I started playing, contrary to what I use to do, I decided to allow some insects escape without trying to kick them, so as to have enough time to strategize for the next available insect.
This struck me as real, true and enlightening, contrary to the popular saying that winners don’t quit or retreat, I say winners quit, wise winners quit smaller battles and brawls, and they retreat to win wars and greater challenges.
I must tell you that I feel a lot better right now, having had the last one year or two of my life feeling I was idle and suddenly some kind of miracle is here and I’m so thankful.
It can only be explained that my creator led me to quit (rest) and retreat some battles, now am winning wars and greater challenges.
If you let God, He would make every single moment of your life count.

These time...!

I was just thinking after "understanding by the books" how the economy has been and the predictions all around. What would become of Bankers that are in the marketing department...
I used to really wonder for example in Ibadan different banks open different branches at different locations in the city of ibadan and every branch has a marketing floor that depicts that they all have to go look for new accounts..not just new but accounts that are fat in nature and in substance....

That, has it may be, is not what i actually was thinking of this time...
My thoughts.....Imagine, the very thing that "LIFE" produces"WORK" tries to choke or distract us from pursuing communion with the Holy Spirit that produces the life that produces the work..That indeed is a rat race!!!

I was just thinking after"understanding the times", remember that same guy that said there was no God...?He is still the same one saying at these times that "these" is not God and no body can survive...But we, we know...!!

Not bad for a Monday Morning..!

Guess what?

Woke up at 4 am and it was pouring, like the rain is delighted about the “PHD” holder President, I struggled out of the bed and jerked up suddenly, reminded it is Monday and I have to travel from iyana ipaja to badagry for the weeks work (how I wish I could play “Garfield) this is the main story, as I got to my junction heading for the bustop one bus splashed muddy water all over my smart “gladiator” shirt and jacket, guess what?

I just imagined nothing happened and walked on whistling praises to God (I have decided to always keep the right attitude ever since I moved to Lagos) that has it may be is not the main story, I headed for the bustop to discover that the lazy agbero has not resumed for the day so I stood at the BRT stop peeping to catch a glimpse of the agbero when and if he comes but men!!! It was dark, “Egypt plague” dark, but

I just wished in my heart I didn’t have to stand up to see and guess what? Just right than the thunder rolled a music and the lightening came on, directly at the park, on the same car I was looking out for and it lightened the place for just that minute I needed to see the scene and “black” went everything again,

I smiled because on a Monday morning when everything looked bleak, God gave me light even in darkness.


“Even in the dark, Light shines for the righteous”…The great book
