Sunday July 10th 2011 is a day many people in Lagos State, Nigeria will live to remember for a long time. The morning of that day looked like any other day.
Our Daily Manna 16th April 2022 – DON’T FIGHT THAT BATTLE ALONE!
People went to church and some others went about their businesses of that day as usual. Suddenly the weather began to change. Shortly after, the heavens opened and it began to rain “cats” and “dogs” for 20 hours! Drainage channels were full and began to pour out their contents on the roads, streets and people’s homes. Cars were submerged; walls and buildings began to give way. Properties were damaged, people were swept away by floods that took over the entire state and lives were lost. One analyst said Lagos had one month rain in one day. Our Daily Manna 16th April 2022 – DON’T FIGHT THAT BATTLE ALONE! The rain left behind it a havoc that was beyond the capacity of the richest state in Nigeria to cope with. The government declared a public holiday and the state governor went on a tour of the state. After what he saw, he appealed for help and donations to help displaced people ameliorate the pain left behind in the wake of that tragic rainfall!
Likewise, life is full of battles; you must fight those battles and win. The scriptures say “fight the good fight of faith” (1Tim. 6:12). Though sometimes it is good to fight alone like Jacob did (Gen. 32:24), many times it is advisable not to fight alone. You are surrounded with weapons that will help you to win the battles of life. The Holy Spirit is there to help you. Call your pastors, log into online programmes like our 7-day monthly prayers, etc, ask for help from prayer warriors, read books, come to the Manna Mountain any Sunday, and let God disgrace that battle. Be like Nigeria’s Lagos State that refused to fight alone! The God that came down as the Captain of the Lord’s host to help Joshua will surely help you this year!
