Learn to do right!
Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, and correct the oppressor. Defend the
fatherless, plead for the widow (Isaiah 1:17 AMP).

As a country, we’ve been very fortunate to have achieved
many things on a platter of gold. Our independence from colonial masters for
example, was attained on a relatively peaceful note, unlike some nations that
had to fight to gain theirs. For this reason, not many in our country know what
it means to fight for a cause.

Fighting here doesn’t connote the hostile meeting of
opposing forces. Rather, it more aptly refers to the continuous, vigorous, and
obtrusive exertion of an individual or group to gain an end or engage in a
crusade for a certain cause or person. As a nation, we need to learn to fight
for what’s right! Some are fighting but are unwittingly engaged in the wrong
fight. An example is when people passionately canvass for their ethnic groups, forgetting
that there’s a bigger picture: NIGERIA!

We’ll all be fighting for what’s right when we’re more
concerned about the entire country, rather than just our ethic groups. We have
to be interested in the future of our nation. But we must accommodate our
differences. We have to engage legally, the activities of those who have taken
on the mission of hindering the preaching of the Gospel. We can’t afford to be
quiet; we have to take a stand for what’s right and speak out now or forever
hold our peace!

Never forget that you have the right to self-determination;
the right to determine your own destiny. That means life becomes for you what
you decide it to be. So be bold and learn to challenge the status quo when you
have to.


Dear Lord, I thank
You for Your Wisdom that’s at work in me always to determine what’s right, and
the fortitude to stand for the truth at all times. I pray for Your country
Nigeria, and Your Children of noble character that you’ve blessed her with;
that these will know to stand for that which is right and beneficial to the
nation, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria
and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
