There is Fire on the Mountain

Psalm 14:1 That man is a fool who says to himself, “There is no God!” Anyone who talks like that is warped and evil and cannot really be a good person at all. 

I don't know about you but every time I've read or heard this scripture, I've always felt it was talking about some other person.  I know there is God. He's my PapaGod after all. The fools are out there. Not me. I'm not an Asiwere. Me? Mad woman? No way! 

Today, in church, as I listened to Pastor Seye Kosoko, my confidence dipped. Why? Because I came to understand that whenever we let our cares and anxieties; our life issues; our needs and greeds; our dreams and desires take over our minds and rule our hearts we are basically saying there is no God. The real 'god' in our lives is the sum total of the 'idols' we are chasing. 

So we can say we believe there is a God all we want with our mouths,  but we need to check what occupies our thoughts 90% of the time to see who's really sitting on the throne of our hearts. God or Self.  If it's really just all about us and what we want, need or feel we deserve. Then, we are just trying to use God to meet our selfish needs. And if that's the case, then we are saying there is no God. Just an ATM in the skies. 

So, fools we are. Stark raving lunatics! Asiweres as tne Yoruba Bible puts it. 

We need to repent. Our generations. Our Nigeria. Need us to be wise people. 

Nigeria needs wise intercessors. 

In case, you haven't noticed, there is fire on the mountain. 

And we are all just here chasing stuff. 

May God open our eyes to see what's really important in this season.
