“If you do not be eyes to us, we are not going to get to where we are supposed to go.”
The devil sought to truncate the destiny of the black race through the mechanism of slave trade. Of all the five races, the black man is more spiritually minded as evidenced by the numerous forms of worship in Africa. The devil saw that capacity and truncated it by enslaving the black race and causing the black man to lose his identity—accepting the lie that blacks are second-rate human beings.
To show the destiny of the black man, when the children of Israel left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land, they almost lost the way until Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Jethro his father-in-law (a black man) to lead them in the way (see Numbers 10:29). When Jesus—our Messiah—was born, He was preserved from premature death in Africa. On the way to the cross, to fulfil the final act of redeeming the human race, it was a black man, Simon of Cyrene (present day Libya) that helped him carry the cross the rest of the way when He was exhausted.
If you are black, you need to understand that YOU ARE NOT INFERIOR TO ANYONE. It has been proven that if given equal opportunity, the black man excels in any field. Since one out of every five black in Africa is a Nigerian, you will understand the devil’s plot to exchange the glorious destiny of Nigeria. Every time you see something that is beyond measure, the devil is perverting a divine destiny in the process. What Nigeria needs is a leader with a sense of the collective destiny of Nigerians to lead Nigeria to her greatness.
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse the lie of the devil to reduce my potential in God. I embrace Your word over my life and destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen!
