REBUILDING OUR JERUSALEM
7 Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.”-Nehemiah 2 v17
Happy 52nd Independence Anniversary to the good and great people of Nigeria. Its so obvious that things are falling apart for our dear nation.
It look as if the labour of our heroes past is beginning to be in vain. It looks as if the Prediction of Nigeria becoming a fail state by 2015 is gradually becoming real.
Like in the case of broken wall of Jerusalem , we have a lots of samballant and Tobiahs who camouflage as Govt officials but they are anti Govt.They are never happy about any policies that will move the nation forward ,thay are anti Government (Neh 2v 10)
But there is hope for us .Nigeria is our Jerusalem .We must rise as Nehemiah and call other in our sphere of influence to arise and build .We can become a Producing Nation again,We can become the Giant of Africa Again,Our Glory in sports can return again .I can see us leading Africa to lime light. You and I Must Arise And Quit The Blame game, Playing the blame game for so long has not taken us further .we really don’t need a position or Leadership title to act or a political party platform to take charge .Two things we need, Passion and courage. We must be passionate and courageous enough to do what God has put in our heart to do for Nigeria.
Can we imagine a South Africa without Nelson Mandela? I have a deep conviction that we have many Mandelas in our nation. Its time for us to arise and rebuild and not lament. We will not be discourage and distracted by what the sanballants and Tobias of Nigeria are doing in form of bombings, they are fighting a battle they will never win.
Arise O compatriots ,in our sphere of influence ,let us beacon to others to arise and build .We must’s do the same thing, but different actions that will complement the ultimate mission of making Nigeria great again.
There is a book you can write, there is someone you can correct to do the right thing,there is a song you can sing, there is a life you can touch .what matters most is that you are doing that very thing God has laid in your heart to do for Nigeria, like Nehemiah ,we will get there, one step at a time, brick upon brick our Jerusalem call Nigeria will be built again. Let us be encourage by the song of TY Bello titled “The Future’’ We are the nation .We are part of this .Yes we are so amazing. How can they say that we are finished, we have just begun. God bless Nigeria.
