There is a thin divide between good and evil, and both divides are actionable qualities that are powered by the government of choice, which also comes with its consequences – Prosperity or Destruction.
At every point in our lives, either as individuals or collectively as a Nation, there would always be a table set before us. This table holds our choices, and how we choose, determines the consequences that befalls us, either as individuals or as a Nation.
“See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil,
From the book of Deuteronomy 30:15-18, we can adduce that life is a product of obedience, and goodness is a consequence of obedience. Also death is a product of disobedience, and evil is a consequence of disobedience.
In exercising our God given authority of choice, we must listen carefully to the voice of God which says choose life, and this is attainable through our obedience to His words, that we may DWELL in the land which God has given to our fathers, which we occupy today.
Nigeria has been through alot, and this is occasioned by an attempt by the wicked to circumvent the order of God on the table of choice, by promoting the ideology that life is a product of evil, and goodness a consequence of evil. This falls short of the word of God, and has become responsible for the continuous injustice in the land.
This orchestration from the pit of hell has made our mother, Nigeria, a crying woman who constantly experiences pain occasioned by the loss of her noble children, through the abortion knife of the wicked. The wicked ones are delusioned with the fallacy that evil is a weapon for the mighty and a sustainer of life.
However, as children of God, it is our responsibility to demand for a change of the current order, but as we do so, we must overcome evil with good, by ensuring that we are not pushed to provocation that leads to an abdication of our primary responsibility of obeying God’s word.
Moreover, it is imperative that we are guided by the words below which are boldly written in the Holy Bible;
1. Abhor what is evil, and cling to what is good (Romans 12:9).
2. Rejoice in hope, and be patient in tribulation (Romans 12:12).
3. Be steadfast in prayers (Romans 12:12).
4. Repay no one evil for evil (Romans 12:17).
5. Do not avenge yourselves (Romans 12:19).
6. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good (Romans 12:21)
God bless you.
