OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR WEDNESDAY 2ND OF DECEMBER, 2020: DIVINE FAVOUR

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR WEDNESDAY 2ND OF DECEMBER, 2020: DIVINE FAVOUR

THEME: DIVINE FAVOUR


MEMORISE:

 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: Numbers 6:25


READ: Numbers 6:22-26

22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

25 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.


MESSAGE:


What is favour ? The Yorubas describe it aptly as ‘a good face’. That means there are two kinds of faces- a bad face and a good one. I am sure you know that when a person is angry, no matter how beautiful or handsome, he/she will begin to look like an angry lion. Everything changes- the nostrils flare, the lips thin out and the whole face generally turns bad. But when people who are ordinarily not considered good-looking smile, somehow their beauty will come out. In Numbers 6:24-26, the Almighty God said that whenever His priests want to bless the people, they should speak thus:

*“The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.”*

When God lifts His eyes in your community, see you and smiles, that is what is called favour. The Almighty God is going to smile on you today in the mighty name of Jesus.

Now, if you find favour with God, what can you expect? Somebody once said that a single encounter with divine favour is worth more than a lifetime of labour. In Luke 5:1-7, Peter fished all night and caught nothing, but just one sentence from God changed everything. You may have been struggling for so long with nothing to show for it; you will find favour with God today in the mighty name of Jesus. Romans 9:16 says:

*“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”*

This passage tells us that the height you get to in life is only determined by the favour of God. Nobody can go higher than the favour of God permits.

God’s favour gives life. Psalm 30:5 says:

*“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”*

Favour singles you out for special attention. The man at the pool of Bethesda was singled out for a miracle (John 5:5-8). I pray God will favour you today and single you out for great miracles in the mighty name of Jesus.


PRAYER POINT:

Father, smile on me today!


HYMN 24: PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOUR,

1.  Pass me not, O gentle Saviour,

Hear my humble cry;

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.


Chorus:

Saviour, Saviour,

Hear my humble cry,

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.


2.  Let me at Thy throne of mercy

Find a sweet relief;

Kneeling there in deep contrition,

Help my unbelief.


3.  Trusting only in Thy merit,

Would I seek Thy face;

Heal my wounded, broken spirit,

Save me by Thy grace.


4.  Thou the spring of all my comfort,

More than life to me,

Whom have I on earth beside Thee,

Whom in Heav’n but Thee.

OYO STATE, THE HEADQUARTERS OF ALMAJIRI - AAC CHAIRMAN

OYO STATE, THE HEADQUARTERS OF ALMAJIRI - AAC CHAIRMAN

Makinde playing politics with the security situation of Oyo state


Part of my discussion yesterday at the Petals FM addressed Engr. Seyi Makinde's governance of 'sound and fury'. Some observers described SM's   empty presentation  as "audio achievement". 


If only Engr. Seyi Makinde knew the implications of condoning the influx of banished stratum of a society in his own state, he would have been more proactive. After 19 states of the north resolved to ban and banish Almajiri from their respective states, Oyo state became their haven. There is no place in Ibadan of today that one would not see the swarm of almajiri children moving in droves  and  in desperation.


These almajiris are at every nook and corners of Ibadan including estates. One can confirm this by going to Eleyele, Sanngo, Mokola, Ringroad, Oluyole, Apata, Iwo road, Ojoo and everywhere. The funny thing is that these almajiris are multiplying everyday. 


Similar to almajiris are their adult males who have taken over everywhere with Okada. They have married their violence with those of indigenous miscreants.


Engr. Seyi Makinde, in a bid to wear the face of a nationalist, is playing politics with the security situation of Oyo state. Oyo state is a center of violence and kidnapping under his watch. It's worse to the extent that Seyi Makinde and his PDP was rumored to have paid a big ransom to secure the release of one of his Caretaker Chairmen at Okeogun zone of the state.


We know that Engr. Seyi Makinde led government does not have a blue print and it's one of the reasons why it's allegedly leaked to the piblic that his cabinet members must take permission before granting media interviews but security of everybody and everything should be prioritized.


My next analysis will focus on Seyi Makinde's unexecutive policies which include:

Infrastructural project

Education 

Health

Loan and recurring debt

Workers, inflation and minimum wage

Recruitment procedures as many people are labeling him governor of none-indigenes as TESCOM list is ridden with highest percentage of NONE-INDIGENES.

Borno killings: Nigerian lawmakers to summon Buhari

Borno killings: Nigerian lawmakers to summon Buhari

The Nigerian lawmakers of the second chamber, House of Representatives has on Tuesday resolved to invite the Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to address members in plenary over the security crises across the country.


According to the report, the House of Representatives earlier, at the plenary turned rowdy on Tuesday as members were sharply divided over a motion seeking to invite Buhari to appear before the lawmakers to explain the rising spate of insecurity in the country.


The House was considering a motion moved by members from Borno State on the recent massacre of 43 rice farmers in the state by Boko Haram insurgents. The later report of the massacre put the numbers of those killed at more than 100.


Part of the prayers was to invite Buhari to appear on the floor of the House and address the lawmakers in plenary.


Efforts by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila; Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa; and Chairman, House Committee on Air Force, Shehu Koko, among others, to have the prayer dropped proved abortive.


Gbajabiamila’s plea that a state of emergency be adopted instead was also rebuffed.


The speaker was forced to ask that the lawmakers have an executive (closed-door) session.

Emerging from the closed-door session, Gbajabiamila asked one of the sponsors of the motion, Ahmad Jaha, to make an amendment to the motion.


Jaha prayed the House to invite the president as proposed in the original motion.


The Speaker put the amended motion to a voice vote and it was unanimously adopted by the lawmakers.


Already, many Nigerian are tired of the Buhari led administration of corrupt, cluelessness and tyranny that put not the interest of the citizens at the center of government policies and programs.


The APC led federal government has failed in all its electoral promises made to Nigerians in 2015 as insecurity and economy woes are more compounded under the lawlessness Buhari leadership.


Despite the invitation or summon of the president, Nigerians are well aware that the house are toothless bull doga that can not bite.

Makinde failed: Hoodlums raid again in Ibadan, leave one dead, others injured

Makinde failed: Hoodlums raid again in Ibadan, leave one dead, others injured

 

In less than 72 hours after the African Action Congress (AAC) raises the alarms about the state of insecurity in Oyo state and Nigeria in general, hoodlums raided again in Ibadan, leave one dead, others injured


According to a confirmed report, hoodlums once again took to the streets to unleash terror on residents of Wesley College area of Ibadan leaving one dead and others injured.

The National President of Soludero Hunters Association, Oba Wahab Ajijola Anab While speaking with newsmen earlier today in Ibadan said the hoodlums, numbering about 700, have taken over key areas in Ibadan like Labo, Orita Aperin, Elekuro, Kosodo, Oranyan, where they used dangerous weapons to wound residents of the areas.

Ajijola also confirmed that a man was stabbed to death during the attack.


He said, “A man was killed at Kosodo area. He was stabbed to death. They were about 700 hoodlums invited from neighbouring streets. They used pistols, animal bones, bottles and clubs to stab and wound people”.


The AAC leadership had on Sunday alleged that Makinde led Oyo State government condone, breeding and accommodating hoodlums and Almajeris for his selfish 2023 presidential Ambition and as a result has failed to govern the State well.
