The Almighty God can take you from a dunghill and put you on the throne.The Bible is full of examples of this.We can take the example of Philip. He was just a deacon.A deacon in those days was somebody who served food to widows, the less privileged, and washed plates.

The Holy Spirit came into the life of Philip and he brought joy to a whole city (Acts 8:5-8). Philip went to the city of Samaria and every demon fled.This unknown Philip was the instrument God used to bring the Gospel to Africa (Acts 8:26-39).

Through him, the Gospel reached Ethiopia and from there it began to spread.With the Holy Spirit working in your life, God can use you for this nation,this continent and indeed the whole world.

Let Me Share This Testimony with you,
“Something happened after Lekki 98; one of the biggest programmes that we ever had. The whole of Lagos was paralysed because of the programme.


“People walked kilometres to the venue and back. Fortunately, the programme was also transmitted by radio, so those who those who couldn’t get there listened to it on their radio. It was a fantastic programme!
“After the programme, I returned to the Redemption Camp and soon proceeded on a prayer walk to thank God: “God I bless Your Holy name, what a wonderful thing, etc.”


“It was between 2a.m. and 3a.m. when He spoke. I heard him say clearly, “Son, bend down.”I did that quickly because, you know, I was in the jungle. You never can tell; a witch could have been flying past.


“And then he said, ‘Draw the figure of a man in the sand.’
“I drew the figure of a man: zero for head, one line for the body and two lines for the leg and so on. You know that kind of drawing.


God said, ‘Stand up.’
“I did, but by then I was afraid because I knew something serious was happening.
He said, ‘Wipe out the figure you have drawn with your leg.’
“I wiped it out.


“And He said, ‘Son, if you ever forget who your boss is, I will wipe you out and nobody will even remember you came to the world.


That was what He told me. So, I smile when I hear people say, ‘He’s a very humble man. How can a man be so successful and be so humble?” You think I want to be wiped out? As they say in Nigeria, “You think say I dey craze? Me I no dey craze at all o.”
When you allow pride to creep into your life, you know what you are asking for? “To be wiped out.’”

Stay Humble….He Upholds the Humble But Ridicules the Proud
