“You can never outdo God when you decide to believe Him for who He said He is and what He said He will do, that He will do. I have come from being a young little girl from Africa to someone able to overcome her environment, believing in the pictures that God showed me.”
I have been writing songs for a long time.
I have catalogues and catalogues of songs….
Well, we were singing some of the songs and they were making a lot of waves. But I guess when the Lord wants to introduce you differently He does it in His own way and you never know which one of your songs He will take.
I am in a new season of my life. I always tell people success is in levels. You go from one level of success to the other. I had done so much, written so many songs. After doing so much sometimes in our lives there seems to be a bit of a gap between moving from one level of success to the other. A season where we can’t lay our hands on what is actually up….and you ask yourself ‘what am I supposed to be doing’. It took a while, it was a swift change in season. I got nervous because I was to walk in an area I had never been before and the Lord was pulling me towards that area.
You know sometimes when the Lord wants to shut one door to open another, sometimes we are like fishes out of water. And we are like ‘I want to stay in a comfort zone, I don’t want to move.’
It was a period I had to really latch into His presence. And then He began to tell me something. God told me that, when He called Abram, He wasn’t Abraham yet. He told him to leave his people and his comfort zone. And He took him out to a place where He will show him. He didn’t even explain everything.
And He said to him ‘I will make you famous, I am going to make your name known , I am going to make you great’ and yes all those promises. It was just a promise.
But the bible says that Abraham believed God, and He left His comfort zone. He didn’t even know where he was going but he started to journey.
And that is when the Lord came in and said ‘Osi, I am your way maker, and that promise keeper. I Keep my promises. If I said I am going to do it, I am going to do it.’
Then, it was a personal revelation. This is how one of my songs “way maker” came about.
And He said my word will bring light to every dark situation and of course He works miracles, He works miracles!! But the greater truth is that we are miracle workers but He works miracles and He is the Chief Miracle Himself.
That’s how the song Way Maker came, and yes it was such a drama. We put it on Youtube and boom!! it just went. Everybody started singing it, people translating it in different languages.
You can never outdo God when you decide to believe Him for who He said He is and what He said He will do, that He will do. I have seen myself from being a young little girl from Africa to being able to overcome my environment, believing in the pictures that God showed me.
That is, what He was going to do, He was going to do it with me. My story is that I am doing what I am doing from Africa and touching the whole world which has never been done before and is rare to see because I believed Him and believed His word.
People do not listen to those not influential and that is why the Light of God is upon us as Christians. And we have a voice and when people look at us they’d say I wanna know your God. So keep believing. God never fails!
