‘There is Power in the name of Jesus… X3
To break every chain x 3’
Grammy award winner, Tasha Cobbs may not be very popular YET in 9ja but her ‘Break every chain’ song is one I sing EVERY DAY.
That simple short song for me is beyond a song. Tz a prophecy. Tz a hammer/gun/grenade in my mouth for the devil.
DCC Lagos Choir (The Rock Image) has got the best rendition of the song ever especially when Jacqueline leads. I always pray it is led by her every time Communion is served. I LOVE the song to fine pieces. Smithereens.
So imagine when I heard that the owner of the song was coming to Nigeria, not just to Abuja and to COZA just at my backyard, on an evening when I didn’t have any church commitments at my own church. Omo, wild horses, tornadoes, bomb blasts and hurricanes COMBINED couldn’t have stopped me from making it there Tuesday April 15,2014 .
But on getting there, I knew God took me to COZA for something else.
So sometime in the course of the service. they aired this short video of the crucifixion of Jesus. Now I’m a blood wimp… I don’t see or watch anything bloody. For some reason, I had the liver for this though I covered face at different points. It was BLOODY. It was HEART WRENCHING. You could hear a pin drop in church that evening. I have NEVER seen a human so tortured before. That a man would go through all of this to save the world!!! And the Holy Spirit kept dropping such words in my heart
‘I did this for you. I went through ALL of this for you. You can not afford to settle for anything but the BEST in this life… You can’t afford a mediocre or an average life darling…That is the least you can do to show me your appreciation. I DID NOT die for ANYTHING less than the BEST for you to enjoy in life!!! ‘
Dear absolutely FABULOUS Reader of mine, if you ever settle for anything less than the best, you are of all men most UNGRATEFUL and ignorant.
If you settle for a mediocre life, you just SPAT in his face and threw His priceless gift of LOVE back at Him.
Remember I am saying SETTLE. Settle implies an END. You may NOT be enjoying the BEST now but never ever settle there. Understand that you may not be where you can exactly call BEST now but also KNOW that you will NOT be there forever.
That pain and torture I saw was INTENSE. And I don’t even think they acted out what He really went through.
The least you can do in appreciation is to BE and LIVE YOUR BEST.
Don’t let the devil ever ever lie to you. God wants you to have the BEST OF EVERYTHING!!!
The BEST of health
The BEST of jobs
The BEST businesses
The BEST husband/wife
The BEST of houses (in my case ESTATES)
The BEST of friendships/relationships
The BEST of cars
The BEST things in life
The BEST and nothing less!!!
He wants to show off to the world through YOU. He wants You to use this BEST to take over the world for Him.
Anything less is to make light of that torture he went through. Anything less makes you a most ungrateful creature.
Lemme preach to you for a second here…
*in Bishop TD Jakes voice*
I don’t care who around you is settling for less. I don’t give a hoot what Nigeria’s economy is saying. It matters absolutely NOT what phase you are in at the moment. YOU can rise above it and be the BEST.
Sweetheart, take advantage of this season and understand that you are GOD’S BIGGEST DEAL!!! His Most Valuable Player (MVP). He would have died for only YOU if you were the only one on earth. You are sooooo important to Him. You can’t afford to settle for anything less. Anything mediocre. Anything average.
Jesus did NOT die for anything less
My darlings, at COZA that night, though Tasha Cobbs didn’t come eventually but I did get my own Easter Miracle for which I am oh-so-grateful. COZA is a very beautiful church btw.
Now this Easter season makes even more sense to me. I feeeeeeeeel so special. Sinach’s ‘I know who I am’ has new meaning to me.
Which is why I am super excited about Easter service at my church DCC Abuja which is themed MVP!!!
Most Valuable Player.
A footie luvurrr would understand what it means when a player is crowned MVP.
You see how Real Madrid played absolute RUBBISH cos C. Ronaldo was absent. Ditto ManCity against Sunderland when my darling Yaya Toure was absent.
That’s who we are in this game of life. Take me out and the world starts spiralling downwards. Zezezeze!!! I KNOW who I am abeg. Even devil knows.
I am excited about the message my Pastor will be preaching that day yo!!!

Oh and my NUMBER ONE Naija artist Sinach is LIVE in concert in Abuja tomorrow Good Friday April 18,2014.
Easter is looking good yo!!!
Do you know how I have dreamt to be in her concert before? Just to hear her sing in tongues LIVE. OMG!!! So my girl Ru who will also be singing there says at rehearsals, people were slain in the spirit. Rehearsals ooo.
No surprises sha. Just playing ‘The presence of the Lord’ during my Quiet time changes the atmosphere. That woman drips anointing. And I hear she is singing an IGBO song too. Can Friday the 18th come already. I always wondered why her songs had sooo much power, praying in the spirit and prophesies in between. I now heard she records LIVE in concert and NOT studio. Abeg difference dey!!! Choi!!! She is my Woman Crush DAILY ooo. Move over #WCW hehehe. Infact as I type, I am watching the last concert she had in SA where she recorded the SHOUT IT LOUD album.
You don’t even know when you JUMP up and start speaking and singing in tongues as you watch it. Now talk of being there LIVE.
I recall watching Nathaniel Bassey once in concert.
That day the spirit of worship jumped into me. Cos I am very sanguine, I can be jumpy jumpy so Praise? I’m gooooooood. But worship? I struggle. So I went with that desire. To grow my Worship life. After that day with Nath, hmmm now E’ can worship forevuuur. Complete with tears and soul totally in sync with God all alone in my room sef. Tz like the most romantic thing. Just worshipping my Sugar Daddy. Oh!!!
Now I’m looking to take it to the next level. Most times, raising my hands in worship is hard. It just seems heavy so I go up and down intermittently. I raise and it goes down in like 5/10secs. Hmm. With this Sinach concert, that’s my desire ooo. To truly be able to lift my hands for longer periods and just worship my Sugar Daddy. And Sinach is just anointed. I can’t wait to just worship God with other believers and Sinach singing, loving on my Sugar Daddy on the day that symbolizes the greatest act of LOVE ever. If people dey fall for over night rehearsal, wetin the real day go be like abeg? Anything short of the trumpet blowing, E’ will be there LIVE. To take over this Abuja for God, I need to EAT plenty abeg. Mehn, if you dey Abuja, Good Friday na public holiday ooo. Come!!!
Tz holding at ThisDay dome 5pm and tz free. Yaaaay!!!
Ru actually hugged her and was rubbing it in so I am beefing Ru. Hiss much.
But really I am so excited that I will be there as she does a LIVE concert that would find its way to CD soon. If this isn’t MVP/VVIP screening, what is please?
Happy Easter darlings.
And if this season should leave you with anything, it should be an everlasting knowledge that Jesus didn’t die for LESS. He did it all for you to enjoy His BEST and NEVER settle for less. Carry yourself with ‘pomposity and sagacity’ cos you are God’s MVP!!!
I came that they may have and ENJOY the REAL life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows) MORE than they ever dreamed of… John 10:10 AMP/MSG
