Nigerian author and socio-political critic, Reno Omokri has taken to social media to dish some words of advice on the need to be discreet especially when making life-changing plans.
According to the former presidential aide, the chance of failing at such plans may drastically increase when too many details are spilled to outsiders.
He stated this in a post on his Instagram page while recounting how Angel Gabriel appeared to Zachariah ahead of Jon the Baptist’s birth.
In his words; “Never boast about your plans to others if you want your plans to materialize. While a fetus is in its mother’s womb, it can still be aborted or miscarried. That is why mothers wait for their babies to be born before they give them names. Do the same thing with your plans. Stop having the naming ceremony before the plan is birthed. Be like Zechariah.
Angel Gabriel told Zechariah the name of his son, then sealed Zechariah’s mouth until John the Baptist was born. It is not everything God has told you, or every idea or inspiration you get that you blab about.
Seal your mouth until it has come to pass or it may not come to pass. Or worse, those you tell may sell you into bondage, like Joseph’s brothers.”
