Power to me is having the ability to make a change in a positive way. Many of us in this great church have been complaining about the way our leaders are managing the affair of the church but we have failed to realise that we are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be.
Before the demise of our late founder, pastor SBJ Oshoffa, he warned us concerning the leadership of this church that it’s the Spirit that would choose who should be a pastor (I have been hearing this for more than thirty years now) but we didn’t wait for the Holy Spirit to do His work and we chose a ‘King’ by ourselves. Hosea 8:4 says “They have set up kings, but not by me; they have appointed princes, but I did not know it. With their silver and gold they have made idols for themselves that they might be cut off”
Someone commented in one of the articles on #CNO recently that it’ almost 20 years that the ‘King’ has been ruling, and that means that the ‘King’ is divinely ordained. How shallow such brains are! The ‘King’ might have been on a throne either for God to bring his sins of the past to remembrance or he’s purposely set up by God Himself like Saul to teach others about the Power of God and also to enable a David ascend the throne.
We have the power to make things happen at any given moment. We have the power to say this is not how the story should end but not when we are disunited. Without us forming an alliance, we cannot achieve a goal, so, as long as the church is not operating under one platform, making a change might be a journey of the Israelites to Canaan land.
I am convinced that knowledge is power. Power to overcome the past, to change our own situation, to fight new obstacles, to make better decisions, is all in our hands. We often convince ourselves that we cannot change, that we cannot overcome the circumstances of our lives, that, actually, is not true.
The youth of this church have been blessed with immeasurable power to make positive changes but we cannot just wish it, we cannot just hope it, we cannot just want it, we have to live it. Sometimes, our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed and rearranged to relocate us to the place we’re meant to be.
