QUESTIONS THAT BRING LAUGHTER
We were travelling through the city of Abeokuta. I had a dear mentor of mine with me and he reminded me of one of the memories I can not forget about the city:
I was an active participant in a quiz programme that airs every Sunday on the State Broadcasting Network. I made it to the final of the quiz competition about three times. Something interesting happened at one of the finals.
In the fourth round of questions, the question I picked was: “Who is the Vice Chancellor of the University of Agriculture Abeokuta?” I paused in shock. I smiled and grinned widely. I took a deep breath and I answered with confidence. Why? I came from the Vice Chancellor’s official lodge to the programme. He was my granduncle.
When I returned home, everyone said they laughed when they asked me the question but that they thought my answer would be “Daddy”. We laughed again.
This season, questions and concerns that your adversaries and situation think would be hard will become a walkover for you. This season, you will have the answers before the questions come.
Favour means “All things work together for your good”. Hear me, if it was meant to unsettle you, it will work for your good. If it was meant to be a grave point, may it become a springboard. What was meant for a loss will turn around for profit in Jesus’ name!
Situations will ask you questions. Circumstances will talk back at you. Do not shake. Remember the gates questioned the King of Glory:
Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty; the Lord, invincible in battle. Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter. Who is the King of glory? The Lord of Heaven’s Armies— he is the King of glory. Psalms 24:7 – 10 NLT
May your answers be ready before the gates question you. Amen.
