Friday Inspirations: Dead End By Ibukun Oniwinde


Dear Ibukun Oniwinde, we are so happy to be inspired by you again.

P.S- please kindly find at the end of this post links to  Ibukun Oniwinde's inspiring write-ups.

It was  2am on a chilly harmattan night,  with her pillow soaked in her tears, and feeling so empty and lost, Tomiwa screamed within her, Lord!!!!!! there is no explanation for this....

4 days earlier, her husband, who was a leader in their local church and her 2 years old son, died in a bomb blast by a popular terrorist group, this blast also affected, her newly opened factory, that had cost all her investment…

Tomiwa was 4 months pregnant.. As she crawled from her bed to the floor, in the quiet cold night, she wondered where she got it wrong

" I thought the Lord said He will rebuke the devourer for my sake "
Where did all my prayers and sacrifice go????!!!! Lord answer me!

When we get to "the end of our lives- a dead end. There are only 2 options, it's either we die or we surrender... Most people die at this point. Dead to life, dead to conscience, dead to the truth. Because it brought you pain.

One thing is certain, life will break you, to the end of your limit. It's a compulsory growth process. If your souls is not prepared to stand, you might die to life- a living corpse.

What do you do when it seems like Gods word is failing you---keep believing it!

‘’You can’t tell me that, God promised me peace and prosperity yet I practically beg to survive”
GOD alone is God, He alone is OMNISCIENCE. He knows the end, even before the beginning.
You have not been giving the power to know why, when or how. Don’t give yourself that burden.

You have been given the power to just believe. Absolutely believing that God is working for your good when you are in your darkest hour is the deepest form of worship.

When you get to a dead end, a state of hopelessness and you still hope, now that’s Faith!

‘’How does this help my situation??’’

God does not father weaklings, He raises Soldiers!

God CANNOT FAIL, did you hear that?

He honours His WORD more than His NAME! Did you hear that? Heaven and earth may fail, but not HIS WORD… “So why do I suffer when HE said I will not”
Don’t ask why, Just Love HIM..

Job said “Though you slay me, I will yet LOVE YOU” This is the deepest definition of LOVE
…Even unto death, you still call HIS name, Then HE will arise in HIS full Glory-Just for you.
He path the ocean for you, cause water to gush out of the rock, be a cloud by day and a wall of fire by night.

His word is light in your dark tunnel, this light shines in darkness and the darkness cannot comprehend it…
I was young, now I am old yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor His seed begging bread.

Forbes youngest African billionaire, Tomiwa’s new husband. They got married 7 years after Tomiwa’s crisis. Her second son is now 7 years old, and yes God blessed the couple with triplet afterwards.

God alone is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ever ask or think..
