Why you need a lockdown!

Yes! You heard me!

I have not written anything concerning this pandemic just because I had no inspiration to do so until;

I had been seeing many people’s status about how much they are utilizing this time to do alot of online classes.

I definitely was one of those who said ‘don’t do too much, relax’ . No lie about that till God opened my eye.

This lockdown has made many people I see on the social media place learn many things, develop themselves, add skills and many more. How wonderful!

God needs us lockdown too, away from all distractions, he yearns that you give him time.

Did you see the result of the lockdown? That’s the result that will be birthed in you when you stay at the presence of God learning new things about Him, skills are added to your spiritual life in the sense of spiritual gifts. .

All these results came as a result of taking the step to learn , some paid and some free.

Some of the virtues you will get as a result of a lockdown will need your payment, paying with your time, resources, even assignments to prune you of some things as those online class does to know if you are understanding the teachings.

Some will be free but still requires your participation. The one you pay for is the one you take more seriously, pay the price to get more virtues.

Even as people are growing, there will be spiritual awakening this period, deeper realms, spiritual gifts , if only you will pay the price.

Even after the pandemic goes, take time to be locked down at points in your life to get more virtues.

Many people are getting skills that will be needed for the future, e.g digital marketing, web development, etc. You can’t see anyone learning how to make any mat, lol. Focus is changing, there is time for everything and you must run passionately with the digital world to bring value to yourself and your business world.

In our spiritual life, we must develop. The gifts you have 15 years ago that you use for your congregation, your audience deserves more, they deserve what is needed now for this season and the season to come. Grow! Study the Bible!

In your marriage and relationship, Hè wants you to develop more skills and only in the secret place is more birthed.

Isaiah 45:3
[3]And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

There are hidden riches found in the secret place, that which you are enjoying now just because of this lockdown.

You may never know what you need and only stay at what you want just because nothing is pushing you to see the necessity.

Now, people run towards what they need to make more money and skills. Some people quote ‘all things work together for good’ , they now make more money even in this period, it’s probably the best time for business. They say ‘it’s blessing in disguise’

People can now see another realm they can thrive in, many talents are spurring out, there are many ‘so I never knew I could do this’ .

A lockdown brings out the greatness that lies in us.

You can now pray for hours like never before, who would have thought? But because you have no where to go and you see the need to now.

There is a virtue, fire, sweet realm that is dormant in you or lying there for a manifestation. Fire the little flame.

‘A smoking flax, shall he not quench’ Isaiah 42:3B.

Even as this lockdown will elapse soon, as you go back to the hustling and being busy, do not forget the precious moment you enjoyed this time, take time to do personal lockdown again.

What has this lockdown being doing to you? Let me know in the comment section below.

  1. One of the things this lockdown like the Spirit interprets it to me as SLOWDOWN….i usually want to way ahead but i discovered through the help of the Spirit in this lockdown period is to actually slowdown and work according to His plan

  2. Well even though I response to emergency at work, but this lockdown has remind me of some things that I wanted to do for a longtime. I summon courage to pick of lessons on financial market trading something that was very reluctant to do.
    I also get some certification online for my profession.
    the goal is utilize this timeframe to develop a skill.

    1. Very well, I like that you are picking up lost interest. That’s how God wants to quicken the lost interest for him again even in this time.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

  3. True! We all need a lockdown or retreat at one point or the other in this journey of life especially as a christian.
    Its end result when maximally utilised never leaves you the same way.

  4. Thank you for this Bible verse!
    Isaiah 45:3
    [3]And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

  5. Thanks Faith for sharing this. This period for me has been a great time to reflect on where I was, I am and I want to be spiritually; being intentional to do the will of Yahweh.

    Honestly, I see this period as God’s strategy to bring out the best in us.

    Shalom to everyone!

  6. Something inside doesn’t want the lockdown to end. Lol. It was very much needed.

    Thanks for sharing
