Christians: Was it a Miracle or by Force?

2 min read

Why is it that whenever we ask God for a favour we never assume that he can fulfil it through us? We always think that God ought to use another man to bless us.

Most Christians brag about their faith level blindly.  ‘As far as your eyes can see’, they say, but it’s strange how ‘far’ breeds myopia in this context.

In my opinion, a man’s eyes ought to see from within before moving so far. After asking God in prayer for something, some christains conclude the prayer by calling forth helpers. Not saying it is wrong but why not ask God to equip you enough to help yourself instead?

Read: ‘Fallen Christians’… They Had No Stand

Have you ever thought that you can be your own helper instead of asking him for a strategic place where your helper can find you…whew! Let’s take, for example, a believer who has been praying to God to bless them with a new phone. Suddenly God blesses them with money enough to buy themselves a new phone but they forbid it. They keep feeling it’s a Good Samaritan or so-called helper’s job to get them one.

I have heard some Christians say “As a tither, it’s forbidden that I use my money to buy some things… Never!” Like really? Whose money should be used?

After getting favour due to continuous begging, bugging or cunningness, some  Christians walk up to the pulpit to give a testimony on what the Lord did for them, how they acquired so and so without stress. Really? Why not tell the church how you forced your way through it or does ‘the violent take it by force’ apply in this context?

As a Christian, you are not forbidden to use your own money to do your bidding. Stop the stylish begging, if a miracle will come, I’m sure you don’t need to sweat it. That money in your account might as well serve as your own miracle.

Truth is a lot of people are just of the mentality that they must go through someone to get something big, they often times look down on themselves and they never pray for knowledge, its always ‘lord please send me a helper’ and I feel those who always say they can never get certain items themselves are people never see themselves doing good.

I have been to churches where “pray that God should send you a helper” is a prayer point they don’t take lightly. And the funny thing is, the helper never comes.

The one I find amazing is a pastor saying, “the Lord will surprise you with a car, house or money before this month or year runs out”. And then you’ll will hear the congregation trying to outdo one another in shouting amen.

Why would someone believe that they would get a huge financial package before a certain time when they have not made any investment? Laughable.

Hahahahahahahahahahaahaha This is not Christianity. It is simply corporate begging covered up by selfish spirituality. E x a m p l e s.. A pastor that calls you all the time so he can tell you he’s been praying for you and your job, then encourages you to bring your tithe to him and not your local fellowship… Corporate spiritual beggar. Someone walks up to you and says God says you are going to be their helper to achieve this and that…someone who’s driving a 4million naira car and you’re on foot, and he’s telling you to sacrificially sow so… Read more »
