I am long overdue for the story of my victory. but i have learnt to walk in precision, so at the perfect time i will tell how the lord has made me a millionaire in the past 3 months and a lender to nations.
“God gives purpose back to the years that had question marks” says bishop td jakes.
Hope is not what you expect; it is what you would never dream. It is a wild, improbable tale with a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming ending. It’s Abraham adjusting his bifocals so he can see not his grandson, but his son. It’s Moses standing in the promised land not with Aaron or Miriam at his side, but with Elijah and the transfigured Christ. It’s Zechariah left speechless at the sight of his wife Elizabeth, gray-headed and pregnant. And it is the two Emmaus-bound pilgrims reaching out to take a piece of bread only to see that the hands from which it is offered are pierced. Hope is not a granted wish or a favor performed; no, it is far greater than that. It is a zany, unpredictable dependence on a God who loves to surprise us out of our socks and be there in the flesh to see our reaction. Max Lucado
Hope is Ayomipo guilty by law but granted amnesty.
Ha Ha Ha….Pea, thanks for the trackback..it was refreshing! And thank you for excusing me. I will pour my heart out very very soon, i am just to giddy with praise and excitement to compose coherent phrases at the moment. And since my blogging is more ministry than memories, i need to be sure that every word makes the necessary impact.
Meanwhile you have given me an easy post, so here goes….
https://disgodkidd.wordpress.com/2009/06/09/diary-of-a-wiser-black-brotha/ lol – good thing, huh!
you even went crazy..
https://disgodkidd.wordpress.com/2009/12/05/my-new-fave-person/ alicia keys? you dey crace?
Are you praising yet????
So mightily grew the word of God in my life and prevailed!
Touchdown at last!
A few posts ago, i wrote about the Making of a Miracle. I have been silent since because i wanted my next post to be the testimony.
In a way, this is the testimony post. My miracle has come. Yet i cannot tell the whole story now because God is still perfecting that which concerns me. But I know i owe you guys a Modern Day Miracle story.
IN related matters, i was thinking about the story of Elijah and the widow of Sidon.
The Lord told him, “Get up, go to Zarephath in Sidonian territory, and live there. I have already told a widow who lives there to provide for you.” So he got up and went to Zarephath. When he went through the city gate, there was a widow gathering wood. He called out to her, “Please give me a cup of water, so I can take a drink.” As she went to get it, he called out to her, “Please bring me a piece of bread.” She said, “As certainly as the Lord your God lives, I have no food, except for a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. Right now I am gathering a couple of sticks for a fire. Then I’m going home to make one final meal for my son and myself. After we have eaten that, we will die of starvation.” 1 kings 17:9-12
It is interesting to know that God sent the prophet to be kept alive by a woman who was waiting to die; in some ways, she was on death row. lol. the irony of it. which is why i am waiting a while before telling my miracle.
sometimes we need to walk through a door that is not open. just like Jesus did when he appeared to his disciples through the wall in the locked room. sometimes we have to obtain a miracle by risking everything else. td jakes preached a similar concept in his message “dangerous deliverance”.
God led the Israelites out of bondage through a dangerous path of rushing mighty currents.
Peter escaped a sinking boat by walking on stormy waters.
Joseph escaped death by being sold into slavery.
Daniel was promoted by facing a death sentence.
Ayomipo received his favor by revealing his disadvantage.
To be continued…
“I just want to make a difference and yet not be seen. I don’t want praise or recognition but I want on some level to help others see that this walk with Christ isn’t about the layers of masks that have been put on.” kafo
I have since come to believe there are no such things as coincidences, and that every thing that happens is the play-out of a script.
So when today’s devotional in Rhapsody of Realities,says “You Can Have a Miracle TODAY!”, I know, even if i realized it much later, that God was speaking to me in bright NEON colors.
Mar 5:25 And a certain woman who had had an issue of blood twelve years,
Mar 5:26 and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and had not been bettered any, but rather came to worse,
Mar 5:27 having heard about Jesus, she came in the press behind and touched His garment.
Mar 5:28 For she said, If I may but touch only His clothes, I will be cured.
Mar 5:29 And instantly the fountain of her blood dried up. And she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
In the past 24 hours, my life has been a parallel to this story. there is something i need that may be limited by a condition that i have. This woman had a blood condition that legally alienated her from membership with the public. In spite of this odd, she reached out for what she wanted. and was not disappointed.
I am a man of faith, and i believe i can be the exception to the rule. in spite of the validity of the law against me, i dare to believe that this is just the making of my miracle.
This woman believed and said ” I will be cured!” I also believe and say “I am the exception to the rule!”

I got to tell you, I miss my mother every day. I have never felt a pain like this, or missed someone so much and so hard. It is the single most difficult thing I’ve ever had to endure in my life. Some days I don’t want to get out of bed and, the truth of the matter is, if I wouldn’t have booked this tour, I wouldn’t be leaving the house at all.
I performed last night in Milwaukee and as I was leaving the Arena, I was caught in the traffic of all the people leaving. I sat there behind the tinted windows looking at thousands of people leaving the venue. So many smiling faces and happy people, couples holding hands and children running and laughing. I saw several buses in front of the venue loading the elderly. It brought tears to my eyes because I know that while so many think that they came to get something from me, the truth is they gave me so much more. The joy and laughter and happiness are contagious. It’s great having something meaningful to do; something that gives me joy. God bless you for that. You are helping me to find my way through a very rough time.
Seeing all of the folks that enjoy what I do, all over this country is so inspirational to me. It moves me, because I remember when nobody was coming to my plays. My first play took 7 years to get off the ground. From 1992 to 1998, I was trying and trying to find an audience. I would put it up in different cities, one show a year, and every time I tried, it failed; (or what I thought was failure, now I see that it was all a part of the success). I wanted to give up so many times. So many people told me it wouldn’t work; so many people made it their business to convince me to give up on my dreams. But I didn’t give up. I kept moving. With no one being there, I kept believing; when I got down, I would pray even harder. I think I wore God down about that show!…LOL. So glad He heard my prayers. It scares me to think where I would be if I had given up. WOW! What a thought if I had given up, you wouldn’t be reading this right now. Thank you Jesus for faith. All of that to say…don’t stop believing!
I woke up this morning with this question for you, and think about this…What brings you Joy? What dreams have you abandoned because it got too hard or you failed at them? People will often tell you what you can’t do; they will try to discourage YOU from reaching for your goals…even the ones that are closest to you will say things that hurt the most, but, whatever you do…DON’T STOP BELIEVING!
God didn’t give your friends and family your vision – He gave it to you. You have to try. I think that is why there are so many unhappy people. I think so many people have walked away from their dreams because it got too hard; they stopped believing because they got discouraged…don’t stop believing!
Every miracle in my life started with someone telling me what I could not do.
