Before my withdrawal from University of Benin (UNIBEN), I had crystals of inferiority complex but it grew to become a beautiful butterfly after I was withdrawn from the university in the year 2014.
Dear reader, it was hurting.
I remember of Pastor Graicifyd Michael Adegoke and Pastor Ibukun Ajayi tried to console me at the department of chemistry after I came out of the office of my course adviser.
I cried like Esau who lost his birthright.
I cried like Samson who lost both his dreadlocks and his eyes.
I cried like Jesus Christ on the cross with the load of sin on him…

Finally, I came back with my bags of books and clothes to Warri without bagging a Bsc certificate.
I saw myself as a total and certified failure.
I was at the mountain top of inferiority complex.
I blamed my environment for my misfortune.
But everything changed on the 27th to 29th May 2015, the day I encounter my purpose.
At the last session of the first day, Pastor Godman Akinlabi spoke on the topic, “LORD, GIVE ME CAPACITY FOR MY OPPORTUNITIES.”
His key scripture was Proverb 24:10 and I like this scripture in NLT, “IF YOU FAIL (GIVE UP) UNDER PRESSURE, YOUR STRENGTH IS SMALL.
* * *
Dear reader, God constantly puts your pressure and strength in view. At every time you give up, it is only a feedback that your strength, especially mental or spiritual, is small and low.
Therefore, discouragement and depression is more of a feedback than a state…
God doesn’t blame the environment, he blames you because a constant increase in strength will make you conquer pressure cheaply.
Pressure is always constantly progressive but your strength is dynamically progressive. I wish there was time to explain this.
What is your pressure?
Giving up is allowing your problems limit you from achieving those dreams God painted in your heart…
Is your pressure a sickness? One that has killed every other person?
Is your pressure your background? Coming from a poor family…
BUILD STRENGTH and you will conquer all your pressure cheaply.
Your problem is complex? Build a more complex strength.
I will end with Proverbs 24:5, “… THOSE WITH KNOWLEDGE GROW STRONGER AND STRONGER.”
