DAY 9 INSIGHTS FROM “IF WITCHES WERE HORSES”A Novel Written By: Kolade Segun-Okeowo (KSO)


BIBLE VERSE: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 KJV

The measurement of power and grace available for a child of God is awesome and largely efficacious. Indeed greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. That darkness cannot prevail over light is a timeless truth.

As we go through episode nine of this novel, we are confronted with a raw display of power exhibited by the forces of light against the hordes of hell, simply because a child of God; Morakinyo who knows his rights has simply exercised his faith and tested the Biblical promise; He that keepeth Israel neither sleeps nor slumber.

As a student of Mayflower School Ikenne, I was a member of the Goat Keeping Society. Our duties included taking turns on weekly basis to take care of the goats and tidy up their pen. Each time it was my turn, I marveled at the words written at the door of the goat pen “These goats were taken from the shrine”

The words were written by Dr. Tai Solarin himself as a reminder of where the goats came from. Records has it that Dr. Tai Solarin had gone hunting alone in the forest when he came across a she-goat tied to an Iroko tree (apparently for sacrifice to some fetish gods) Confidently, Solarin untied the goat and brought it to the school compound where he started nursing the poor animal.

A few weeks later, the goat (previously pregnant) delivered kids. That was the beginning of the goat pen that had grown to almost 100 animals when I was a student.

That was a Tai Solarin, an atheist. I then wonder why I, a professed Christian will loose my sleep over some innocent birds crying at night or a poor old cat missing her way into my compound at midnight.

Are you truly a child of God? Your faith and confidence in him will be tested.
