Ghana Has Numbers, But Do Numbers Matter To God? Patriotism Is What We Need.

This year 2023 I have made it my policy to write letters to public officials in Ghana. I will be touching on important issues that affect the Ghanaian society and the role played by the Public Official concerned, their accomplices and the role we the general public, the consumers or beneficiaries of the service the public office is supposed and expected to provide. The heading I have chosen for this introduction is “The Game of Numbers” and I need to explain it to make following and reading interesting.

In all Spiritual matters, numbers are not important for God. We must understand that when I  talk of Spiritual things, I am first and foremost talking about God, the creator of all things because the Holy Bible tells us that, when God, who is SPIRIT  formed man with clay and lifeless, he breathed into his nostrils and man became a living creature. What did God breathe into man? His Spirit and immediately, the Soul responded and lo a bold, the body received life and lived. Three things happened simultaneously by the one act of God, namely, His Spirit birthed the Soul and the Soul lived through the Body.  God is SPIRIT, John 4:24. Why am I concerned so much about the Spirit for this write up?  I want to underline the fact that, we live in a Spiritual world and for those of us who are Christians our belief and confidence is God’s own Spirit, the Holy Spirit resides in us. Our hearts are the residence of the Holy Spirit. Therefore we have his Spirit and our Soul which he benevolently gave to us  make us function in the physical  ream through our  Body.

This write up will from now on focus on the Spirit and the Body. In all spiritual matters, our God uses his Angel’s to carry out or execute his plans. To God, because he is supreme and omnipotent, numbers do not matter. Whatever he had done in the past and recorded in the Bible, our God never depended on numbers. He called Abraham and made nations out of him. One man Abraham, became the father of all nations on earth. Christianity, Islam and the Jewish religions all relate to one man, Abraham. When man sinned and God wanted to destroy the world, he needed one man, Noah to stand out and became the future of the world we have today. How about Moses, Jacob, Joseph and when sin had engulfed the world, he is going to use one man: Jesus to come and save mankind, redeem man from sin and gave man salvation through the blood.

In a nutshell, our God does not need numbers. When the Philistines had tormented the Israelites for a sustained period of time, God used only David to defeat their giant Goliath and thus the Philistines and the list is endless, he said to Gideon, how many men do you have for this battle against the Midianites?  Our God who does not depend on numbers to achieve victory, commanded Gideon to reduce his army from 32,000 men to mere 300. With obedience anyone who trusted God and responded accordingly won their battles and chalked victories.

Why the game of numbers?

In the physical world, which refers to us created and placed on the earth, we depend on numbers to fight our battles. Just look at Russian versus Ukrainian war, they are depending on numbers, soldiers well versed in the art of warfare, to be able to use the equipment and arms needed to fight and win wars. Throughout the history of man on earth, we have always depended on numbers to achieve or attain, satisfy any life goals. The employer users numbers, amount of labour to employ to produce. Education need numbers, students to be enrolled to be equipped for life that is being taught and trained. Public utility providers, civil service, private businesses, shops, hospitals…… the number game. We need numbers to satisfy a need on earth but God, does not need numbers.

Having given all these insight and revelation, I am asking the Ghanaian, the believers who agree with me that, for Ghana to achieve any sustainable development, we shall not need all the 31.7million Ghanaians to spearhead the changes we need. If God does not need numbers but a few 300 GIDEONITES, then join me and let us begin this battle of eliminating corruption from Ghana. To fight and win the CORTUPTION battle, the beneficiaries are powerful. They will not give in easily but us, the few determined crusaders with the support of God’s Spiritual army, we shall overcome. JOIN ME, SUPPORT THIS CAUSE for we can all benefit from the resources of Ghana when we speak out and confront those in our: CIVIL AND PUBLIC SERVICES spearheading this harmful and unlawful acts and behaviour.

I have a VOICE I will speak out. That should be your mantra.

I have EYES, I see the wrong being done our country, I cannot shut my eyes.

I have a NOSE, when I smell something is wrong I cannot walk by.

God has given us INTELLECTUAL ABILITY built on wisdom, I will not stand on the side of IGNORANCE. When Ghana suffers, I suffer too.

I will not use POLITICAL PARTY PATISANSHIP to foment trouble, cause disaffection, use propaganda and lies when the TRUTH is kept locked up in my pocket.

Whether NPP or NDC, the GOAL is the same: Ghana’s Well-being, development and Prosperity.

Never again can I sit on the fence as a mere 1% of our population, wearing the cloak of: Selfishness, Opportunism, Graft and Theft, Greed and abuse of power, favouritism, Class Grouping, Political Power and the abuse of It,………AND Corruption in Police Service, Immigration service, Customs Division, The Civil Service, Public Service holders like our MMDCEs, The Rich and Powerful in our society.

CONFRONT, SPEAK OUT AND BE FEARLESS….ISAIAH 41:10: Ghanaians our God of no numbers says: “Fear not, for I am with you. Be not afraid for He God will fight for us. Move forward and fight to save Ghana. Ghana deserves better but only INDIVIDUALS and the collective will can bring the BETTER OUT.


Started Ghanamindset in 2011 purposely to help our Ghanaian society have a better view of appreciating that mediocrity has never built and develop any nation. We have this layback attitude that we always think,when something is going wrong, " I am not responsible to fix it". There are many instances that we could have applied common sense to tackle a situation but our laissez-faire attitude would let us walk past unconcerned.
