I was speaking to Neo Kuaho the other day, director of YDIDI, and it was a conversation that just started when I asked how he was doing and how his weekend was, we did a bit of catching up then he told me he’d been busy since Friday doing talks and motivational speeches here and there so I told him it’s something that I actually want to do and he said, “Just start my brother, you will see this as you go, just start.”
While that got me excited he pulled a video from the internet that talks about the science behind speaking and motivating, I haven’t watched it yet, I definitely will, but I just passed a comment and said, “so this is your thing right?” And he said he’s always feeding himself with either motivation or the Word.
He went on to speak on how important it is for us to stay connected to our spirituality, whatever religion we may fall under, we must stay plugged in. Then he gave an example of the smartphone, when you charge it on a laptop or power bank, yes it may charge but not as much/fast as it may when you plug it into the main source of power. He spoke about the immensity of the power that is locked within a human, power that even science fails to explain, how against gravity a human can levitate.
Again giving an example of a smartphone that today, it has over a thousand times more computational power than the computational power that was used to send the first man to the moon, but what do we use it for? Send messages and receive calls. That’s the same example he gave for us humans that the power within us, within our spirits, minds and bodies
My take home.
This resonated with me as a Christian, Jesus in John 15 v 7-8 says “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. (Verse 8) By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so will be My disciples.” Our (Christians) source of being is Jesus and even as we stay plugged in to Him, to His word and to the Holy Spirit, heaven knows what power we can unlock that is working within us, Ephesians 1 vs 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.
We must stay plugged in.
