The Spirit of the LORD, not the enemy is like a flood. Isaiah 59:19 – So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. The scriptures have no mistakes but the translators made some mistakes. E.g. Psalm 8:4 – What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the ANGELS, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. In Hebrew the word angels in verse 5 is ELOHIYM [GOD]. The translators could not fathom [or found it hard to accept] that God had made man a little lower than Himself not angels. Heb 1:13 says “But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? Notice that God has never told an angel to SIT! However, the redeemed of the LORD have the permission to do so in God’s presence. Ephesians 2:4 says “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He LOVED US, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, MADE US ALIVE together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and RAISED US UP together, and MADE US SIT together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” Coming back to Isaiah 59:19, the coma has been placed after the word flood instead of the words comes in. So the scripture should read “When the enemy comes in, like a flood The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” One of the definitions of the word flood is “to overwhelm with abundance of something [good or bad]”. The enemy may attempt to overwhelm people and nations but God’s love, grace, power, wisdom, mercy, goodness… is truly overwhelming above and beyond anything the enemy may try to do. Think about it, if satan and his forces are really overwhelming then The Lord Jesus Christ would not have resurrected. But Jesus is alive today because the Spirit of the LORD like a flood surged into hell, OVERWHELMED hell and its forces and got Jesus out of there! Hallelujah! Romans 8:11 – But if the SPIRIT OF HIM who raised Jesus from the dead DWELLS IN YOU, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I decree that the Spirit of the LORD like a flood lifts up a standard against every infiltration of the enemy in your life, your family, your neighborhood, your city and your nation.

I have been asked several times why I choose writing poetry and motivating people. Well, my answer is simple: If you find yourself in my side of life, you'll definitely be grateful about the simple things life offers. You'll come to understand that every single day is an opportunity, and a reason to be grateful. I love what I do not because I generate a flow of income from it, but because in what I do, I can define my life and at the same time give meaning to someone elses life. As a poet my perception to life and the things that happen around me is quite endearing. I see life from the angle of possibilities. "Having overtime understood that drooling over situations never change the results, I choose to be optimistic at all levels and sphere of life." Born into a humble background, where my Destiny helper took the pains of seeing me through school as his last born and integrate me into his blissful family. gave me quite the necessary lessons I needed to become the man I have grown to be. Life is simply amazing when you see situations as a class and a needed lesson. I am simply an observer, I try my best to sketch out my tomorrow from my today's views. As a motivator, I see every experiences as a needed tool to help my friends, acquaintance and the entire society towards making the right choices. When you appreciate the person you have become, you can easily define your life's journey from where you came from, having a clear vision and understanding of your desired destination. Self-discovery means many things. It means finding your purpose in life (we all have a purpose), it means digging deep into your childhood and revealing the experiences that shaped you... good and bad. It means realizing what your beliefs are and living by them. The effects of self-discovery include happiness, fulfillment, clarity and maybe even enlightenment! The journey however is not always an easy road. The journey includes fear, confusion, misunderstanding, doubt and literally re-visiting all your choices in life. I like to refer to it as reshuffling of the mind, your emotions and your surroundings (including the people in your life). It requires making some tough decisions and sticking to them. My journey so far has seen me cut people out of my life. I call them the “takers.” They were takers because I allowed them to be and it wasn’t until I realized that many of these relationships were one-sided — self- discovery — that I decided to cut them out. It has also seen me completely change the course of my life and start to follow my true passion and purpose (poetry and motivation). I have also started to set intentions and no longer have expectations from others — okay... this one is really hard for me and it’s a work in progress — but instead I have started to look within for answers. I’ve had several set backs along the way and I have no doubt I will have many more but, I’m not giving up. What I know for sure is that the journey is worth taking. I am slowly becoming my true self, more aware and more tolerant. I am learning how to pay attention to my feelings and understand myself better. What I know for sure is that I have had several unrealistic expectations, which have set up for disappointment. Apparently because I lie to myself. Why do we do this? Why do we lie to ourselves? And more importantly, why do we allow ourselves to get away with it? When someone else lies to me and I find out about it I freak out. “How dare he lie to me? Does she think I’m stupid?” but, we lie to ourselves profusely and even cover up our own lies by accepting them as truth in order to reassure ourselves that it’s okay!!! What I know for sure is that being true to my feelings and accepting the poet and motivator in me and also acknowledging him as well as validating him has released so much fear in me. It has released my fear of not being good enough as well as my fear of not living up to the expectations I set for myself. What I know for sure is that we are usually our own worst enemy. We hold ourselves back in so many ways and accepting who I am, helps me move away from that pattern. The freedom you will feel within yourself starts when you accept the person you are or have become without being bias. However, the universe will give you back in rewards when your passion and obsession for who you are and what you believe in supercedes the challenges and discouragement that comes from your distrators.
