The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14)

I once worked with some people in a hospital in Nigeria. They are indigenes of the area where it is. In general, many of them believed it was their right to occupy the top positions in all the establishments in their zone. I am not from there!

Not long after I resumed work in the hospital, I noticed that some doctors were uncomfortable with me in their midst. According to them, the management favored me too much! They soon arranged a meeting presided over by a consultant sympathetic to their cause. In it, they planned to make me work under a nasty senior doctor, in another department. They felt they could frustrate me out of the system through him! I did not train to function in his department!

But to make the meeting look fair, three other doctors at my level were invited to it, purportedly for screening. They attended the meeting armed with firm instructions from their godfathers to remain where they were. That meant I had to move, come what may. On my path, I turned to God, the ultimate Godfather, to support me!

At some point during the meeting, the chairperson ordered me to move to the position they had in mind. I did not argue with her! Within me, I felt hurt but assured that God would fight for me in some way. Suddenly, the chairperson changed her mind and ordered the plot’s instigator to move to the department she earlier asked me to join. She also asked me politely to remain where I was, and I did.

I later heard that the cruel senior doctor fought the other doctor publicly one day. I remained where I was and did very well. I give God praise! The Lord fought the doctors for me while I held my peace (Exodus 14:14). He will fight your troublers for you too if you allow Him.

God will fight for you and save your children (Isaiah 49:25). He will also fight for your business to thrive. Remember, He wants you to prosper (3 John 2). Besides, God will fight your afflictions and deliver you from them all (Psalm 34:19). He will fight those who plan to disgrace you, and they shall be ashamed and greatly troubled (Psalm 6:9-10). ETC.

Please get set for God to fight anyone, group of people, institutions, circumstances, etc., that rise against you for the wrong reasons, for you to enjoy His stunning plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11), in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Jesus is Lord!

NB: I am happy to release my latest book titled ‘They Happened!‘. It is available via Amazon. Com and Amazon.co.uk by clicking the link below:



The Boll Weevils are beetles that fed on cotton buds and flowers. They entered the U.S. from Mexico in the late 1800s. By the 1920s, they had spread through the country’s cotton-producing areas, and the devastation they left behind was mind-boggling. They ruined plantations after plantations, devastated the cotton industry, and left many people poor and distressed.

Amid the great loss and the grim situation around, a farmer in Alabama, USA, decided to do things differently. He opted to grow peanuts (groundnuts) instead of cotton. He quickly discovered that the Boll Weevils could not destroy peanuts as powerful as they are.

So, he introduced his colleagues to peanut farming. Of course, they resisted his idea initially. They wanted to continue planting cotton because that was the only crop they knew how to grow. But thank God, they listened to and joined him at the end of the day.

To their greatest surprise, they made so much profit at the end of that year’s planting season than they would have made if they grew cotton. Many farmers in the area never went back to planting cotton, even after the Boll Weevils’ scourge ended. The man and his colleagues did things differently, and they were better off for it!

As you enter the year 2021, please, look back, and consider those things you could do differently. Ask yourself what works and bears fruits in your life? What are those things that make you happy? What do you do with ease? What can you do to be more productive, passionate, loving, generous, etc.? Identify them, work on them, and do them differently.

To do all the above, you may have to walk away from bad behaviors. You may also have to be kinder and more sensitive to people’s plight. Besides, you may have to make yourself less hard to get on with. Avoid looking down on people and don’t kill their dreams. Be more tolerant, more forgiving, and more approachable.

Please, upgrade your skills. Attend appropriate courses, and read relevant books. You need to move with brilliant people and let sound people mentor you. Above all, trust God to direct your path, and He will. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Make sure you read your Bible often to succeed (Joshua 1:8) and pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). You may have to fast and pray to achieve great miracles, too (Matthew 17:21). Please, reach out to the poor, and the Lord will deliver you in the day of trouble (Psalm 41:1).

And if you are not born again, or better still, if you have no close relationship with Jesus Christ, then sort that out this year. He is waiting to partner with you (Revelation 3:20).

If you do all the above and more this New Year, God will help you, and you will go where you have never been before, accomplish what you thought is impossible, and attain the level you could not reach on your own, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Happy New Year!
