TRUTH SERIES 7:THE POWER OF THE 2ND STANZA
Let’s take a look at the 2nd stanza of our National Anthem .Its wonderful to know the power it carries.
Oh God of creation,
Direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youths the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign.
It’s so amazing that Nigeria is one of the country in the world that has a legislated and constituted anthem of prayers. Let us analyze it line by line. This shows that God has great destiny for our nation, but it’s a pity that we are where we are today. But in the midst of all the corruption, kidnappings,killings, injustice, poverty and embezzlement. There is hope for us if only God can answer all our Prayer requests in the 2nd stanza of the Anthem. Then our present predicaments will be a thing of the past.Lets analyze the first line "OH GOD OF CREATION"
OH GOD OF CREATION.
And the children of Israelite cried unto God, And HE Heard their cry. EXO 2:23-24
This first line symbolizes a cry and call unto God for help. Any country that must make meaningful economic and infrastructural development must make God their foundation and source of help. Only Righteousness can exalt a Nation. As we turn to God of creation for help, He will turn the destiny of our Nation around as He did for the Israelite.
I believe u have been challenge by this short write up. See u in the next series as we analyze the 2nd line “DIRECT OUR NOBLE CAUSE” .Keep on making a difference Nigeria is more than map, it is you and I that make up Nigeria.
The wealth of Nigeria is not in her oil but is in you and I.We are the greatest asset of our Nation.
Nigeria will be great again!
