Human beings are very fickle. They would intimidate and try to shut you up from achieving your purpose but if you are determined not to be silenced and you finally achieve your goal or received your miracle; those who shouted you down would come to rejoice with you. These were the words of Pastor Taiwo at the July 16 Thursday Showers service. “The more people shout you down, the more you should reach out to God for help and He will listen to you and help you,” he said.

Speaking from Psalm 40:1-3 and Mark 10, Pastor Taiwo said that the secret to receiving divine intervention over any issue of life is by speaking and reaching out to God. He also noted that believers don’t have to wait for a superb moment or situation before singing the new song God has put in their mouths. “If the Lord has put a new song in your mouth, don’t wait for a superb circumstance before you start singing it,” he said.

According to Pastor Taiwo, having a personal relationship with God and allowing the Holy Spirit in one’s life emboldens a believer to sing a new song irrespective of his or her situation, noting that this supernatural strength makes such a believer reach out and ask for help. “He will help you sing new songs irrespective of your circumstances and also help you to reach out to God. God will hear your cry and rescue you from the miry clay and terrible pit,” he stated.

He, therefore, encouraged his listeners never to allow sadness in their lives but allow the new song that God has put in their mouths to begin to sound. “This pandemic will neither drown you nor everything around you but it would turn around for your good. Just continue to sing the new song God has out in your heart and mouth,” he said.
