\”A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus\” Martin Luther King Jr.

A bird somewhere in Russia for some reason, refused to join the pack as they flew South for winter. It\’s parents and elders warned, it refused believing it could tough it out alone. Winter came and it was extremely cold so the bird FROZE. It fell to the ground, and it was covered with snow.  After a while a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. Because, the pile of dung was warm, the bird was thawed out and brought back to life. It lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. Just then, a cat heared the singing bird, took it out of the pile of cow dung and ate it.

The bird in this story typifies Nigeria as a nation, and the cat represents enemies as a nation. We are at a stage in our life as a nation where we have to be wise and spiritually sensitive in deciding the future of our nation.
Especially as the general elections are around the corner. Nigeria no doubt has forsaken the advice of elders in the past and has been exposed to the harsh conditions of coldness as a result. And many times, we\’ve been thawed from our frozen state by God\’s mercies and set free.

Behold, Prov 3:5-6 admonishes \”Trust in the Lord with all your heart: And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths\”

Trying to chose a leader without adequate input from God, will be an exercise in futility. We need His wisdom to choose correctly. We need Him to step in and deliver us from enemies waiting to devour us. So as Nigerians, it is time for us all to turn to him in prayers and ask Him to help us, because genuine leaders are urgently needed in Nigeria.

Psalm 127:1 \”Except the Lord build the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain\” KJV

As we approach the 2019 general elections we need leaders after God\’s heart. Yes we ought to be careful this period because many shall set up foundations all in the name of wooing your votes, lots of empty promises, deception from the pit of hell.
