Whose Annointing Are You Tapping Into?

If you’re a dedicated BellaNaija (BN) reader like I am, you've probably noticed that BN wedding posts seem to take the cake. Most of the readers love to observe and fawn over a good ol’ wedding post. I certainly do enjoy looking at the wedding posts myself. My favorite things to check out are the “how we met” story, the couple’s chemistry (or lack of it), the bride’s dress, and the oh-so beautiful and handsome guests.  I’m convinced that it’s either that only fine people attend those Lagos weddings, or the photographers just gravitate towards the good looking guests for our viewing pleasure. Either way, a BN wedding is usually a fun thing to look at.

Of course, with the typical BN wedding post comes the typical accompanying comments with a lot of women firing prayers and doing fasting ontop the marriage matter. You will typically see comments such as:

Father, please I am waiting for my own oooo

"Father, do it for your daughter abeg"


In the name of Jesus, I use this couple as a point of contact and pray that my boyfriend will propose by X month…aminnnnnnn


God abeg, send me my own rich, fine husband. See oppression


I tap into this couple’s anointing…


Like clockwork, it’s always amusing to read.

I’m not even mad at women who know what they want. Hats off to every woman out there who looks at such a wedding and boldly proclaims that she is waiting for God to do her own. My prayer is that Baba God will do it for you too my dear sisters according to his will….amin! But ehn, that whole business of tapping into people’s anointing is just a somehow sonthing ooo.

I mean, think about it. What kind of anointing are you tapping into? Is it God’s own annointing? abi is it juju? abi na winchy winchy anointing? I personally cannot be tapping into anybody’s anointing because I no sabi the kain principalities and powers wey don anoint that marriage. You gats check am and realize that all that glitters is not gold.  Now I’m not saying that everybody’s marriage is suspect, not at all. Some of them are on that legit p. All I’m saying is that if you want to tap into any kind of anointing, you need to hit that direct extension to call your God and tap into his own direct anointing. Can I get an amen?


Recently, the news circulating the blogs was that some Chima Anyaso fella proposed to his girlfriend at her 25th birthday celebration in Dubai. If you keep up with the haps, you may know that this same Chima once had a pretty big wedding to another woman that featured on BellaNaija back in 2010 abi 2011. It was this really fancy affair, well attended by more than a few celebrities, and in general, the couple looked like a darling, happy duo.  Sure enough, there were at least one or two individuals who tapped into the anointing of Chima’s marriage.  From the gist of the matter, 9 months down the line, Chima and his then-wife called it quits based on a bunch of conflicting reports of he said, she said...in the end, na only both of them wey sabi the real koko of wetin happen for that marriage. Still, with all the he said, she said stories that I read about the supposed cause of their separation, na so I come ask myself…so what about the people that were tapping into the anointing? Is that the kind of anointing that they want on their marriages? The anointing of a marriage didn't last for up to 9 months and still has some serious K-leg stories that surround it? If na me personally, I go pass on that kain annointing o. Shuooo.


Forget the Chima gist sef. I’ve observed at least 3-4 weddings on that BN where I heard some kain scoin scoin back story about the couple, but on that beautiful day, as they shined bright like diamonds in all the fabulousness, some people were there tapping into their anointing. If you sef come hear the koko of their stories, I doubt you would want that kind of anointing in your own marriage. So brethren, the point of all these long story wey I don yarn finish, be say… when I observe weddings and admire the fabulousness of it all, I am careful to draw the line at tapping into anybody’s anointing as per I no know wetin don anoint that marriage. Make I no use style and tap into any juju kind of annointing. I will just continue to look to the God that I believe in, and ask him to send his own special brand of annointing that I can tap into for my ideal marriage. Ya fizznaeezy??? (That would be the rapper Lil Scrappy’s slang for “You feel me?”).


And that is all she said. Have a fantabulous weekend guys.

And that was all she said.
That makes sense. We always gravitate for what we see on the outside but we never know what's really going on behind the scenes. The better anointing to tap into is the one that has been set for you according to HIS will.

Amen! Your post is just too on point!
All that glitters is not gold... Let God do for us what is good for us..

I just had this kinda convo with a friend of mine recently. You never know anyone's back story so its no point in wishing for what someone else has.

Lol@ tapping into anointing. Folks be for real about that stuff? You make a good point sha. People see flash and assume life is all rosy.

Have a great weekend too OM.

Lol so true...when I read about that Chima's own, I went back to the BN post to read the comments. God help us with the kind of anointing unconsciously (or consciously) tapped into.

The comments on BN weddings never cease to amaze me though. Sometimes there are more prayers than comments on the wedding itself.

Nice Anon: LOL! Before gi taputa otu. The BN wedding comment section is where people go to engage in a serious prayer warfare against every spirit of singleness holding them back. Whatever works for them really.

Ain't that the truth?!

And this being Nigeria (sorry to say), more than half of the couples are dealing with a "Who-Has-He-Slept-With-Now?" Is that the "anointing" someone wants to tap into?

Tenks but no tanks.

Amen!!!

ww.on-point...dazzall!

But this is so true. People will just be claiming results that they see without knowing the 'efforts' (good or bad) that brought about the results.

Better to claim annointing directly from Baba God. "Nough said.
