DAY 8 INSIGHTS FROM “IF WITCHES WERE HORSES”A Novel Written By: Kolade Segun-Okeowo (KSO)


The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1 KJV.

The major hindrance to the success of many is fear. The fear of failure has kept many from advancing and taking advantage of their God-given potentials.

The greatest weapon that contributed to the success of Morakinyo in breaking the barrier of delay to his mission to Onigba Iwofa was his boldness.

Think of how many times fear has prevented you from taking those giants steps that could have turned your life around positively. Unknown to you, fear and failure are brothers of the same mother!

Do you realise that the devil can even sow seeds of fear in your heart and prevent you from preaching the gospel to others. Boldness is required to obey what God has instructed you to do.

The problem of procrastination has robbed you many times of moving forward. What you don’t realise is that beneath the façade of procrastination is the real problem: FEAR !!!

The biggest challenge of a procrastinator is fear. He says to himself “What if I fail…Won’t I be mocked?” He keeps asking myriads of questions in the negative. Eventually, he does nothing.

Show me a successful man and I will show you a man who has conquered fear.

Stop procrastinating! Stop operating under the influence of fear. Take bold steps to achieve those God given visions. Today is your greatest asset.

Yesterday was a cancelled cheque, tomorrow is a postdated cheque, only today is raw cash… Spend it wisely!!!

Fear also generates from the guilt of sin. The Bible says the righteous is as bold as a Lion….” and I add, the sinner is as timid as the snail!!!! If your fear is the result of the sins you have committed in the past, confess your sins and repent. Accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, then you can walk in boldness.

Have a pleasant day!!!
