Are You Saving for the Future?

James checked his mail,  there was a letter from his landlord suing him to court, he,was owing a full year's rent. How did life become so horrible? He who was a former international footballer could not even afford to pay his rent. The newspaper would feast on his story, he could read the headlines already 'Ex-Chelsea Player is as broke as a church mouse'.

He suddenly began to cry; he worked hard to attain success and then he lost everything he had worked for in less than five years because he  was spending more than he was earning; he was confident his career would always be on the rise; he thought  would live like a king forever.

During a football match, he had an injury that kept him on the bench for 6 months, after that,  his career began to deteriorate till no football club would buy him. He couldn't afford to pay the mortgage on the house, the cars were also too expensive to maintain.  His wife left him shortly after he sold her pink range rover, she justified her action by saying he never told her they would be broke.  James looked up and prayed "God if you will bless me again, I will live my life differently and much more responsibly".

The bible says that in Proverbs 21:20 (NLT) the wise have wealth and luxury but fools spend whatever they get. Many people are riding their future and carrying the money they ought to have invested for their  children as handbags and phones. Many people who are indebted heavily always believe the lie that there is money in the future.  News flash! The way you live your life today determines the future! How then can the future be bright when you have borrowed everything you are supposed to enjoy in the future today?

Make savings a life long habit, it will save your life. Some are of the school of thought that you should save 10% of your income, I believe you should save as much as possible; anything left after tithe, investment and expenses goes to savings for me.

May we not look back one day and not be able to place our hands on what we did with all the money that passed through our hands in a lifetime.  Amen.

Your Talent is a Gift!

The first time music executives heard Elizabeth sing, they  cried. Her voice was so powerful; she always had that effect on people. When her first album was released, she sold out in just a week. Elizabeth became the first Nigerian to reach multi platinum status and the first Nigerian to win 6 Grammy awards. 
At just 20, Elizabeth was a world class superstar. The fame began to take her toll on her, she was booked all year round, she didn't have enough time to rest, she couldn't go out without bodyguards because the fans kept screaming and trying to touch her. Many times, she was tired and she complained to her manager. 
It started innocently enough; her manager advised that a few drags of cocaine would give her the needed strength to perform on stage and not get tired. She sniffed the cocaine and she liked it and then it became a habit until it became an addiction.  
Elizabeth began to forget her lines and to cancel concerts. Her management kept her family and loved ones out of her life, it was almost impossible to reach her. 
Nobody knew exactly how it happened, someone said she checked into a rehab, others said she overdosed. The world woke up one day to hear the news that Elizabeth, the most powerful and most accomplished singer the world had ever known was dead from a drug overdose at just 23 years old.
Her fans went crazy, they burnt down the recording label, beat the manager into a pulp and turned her house to a tourist attraction. The Nigerian government gave her a National burial. Everyone was saddened by how such a young, talented woman destroyed herself. 
The bible says in Esther 4:14 For if you altogether hold your peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but you and your father's house shall be destroyed: and who knows whether you are come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Whenever God gives you a gift, the gift is not for you. What gift has God given you? Can you sing, dance, write, act, talk? You didn't have to work for it, He dropped it on you! God gave you free of charge! It's a national treasure God deposited in you and it is for the deliverance of many and for blessing millions of people. 
You must know that your gift comes with responsibility, you mustn't be careless, proud or selfish, it's a gift! You must nurture and protect it because you will give account when you get to heaven. 
You were a worship leader in church and God put you on a global platform now you have fame and fortune and then you suddenly forgot God and started sleeping with different women and trying to conform to the world. You don't even want to be called a gospel artist any longer, now you are a soul or inspirational singer.
Listen to me! God will not take back your gift because the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable (Romans 11:29) but He will raise up another to take your place. The end is never pleasant for such people.
 May God help us all to understand the purpose of the gifts He has given to us may we not abuse them and may another never take our place in Jesus name.

Family First!

Sir Obinna Njoku looked out of his balcony over his vast estate, he was one of the richest men in Africa and number 10 richest man in the world. He was also the largest land owner after the Nigerian government. Yet on this day, Sir Njoku was crying bitterly, it was his 70th birthday and he knew he didn't have much more time to live. 
Who would he leave all his vast estate to? His children? Certainly not! They were all spoilt brats! It was his fault! All of his fault! He wished that he had someone to advice him when he was just starting out. The moment he died, everything he had ever worked for will be gone in the twinkle of an eye.

 He failed to spend time with his children because he felt money was more important and they could do well without him. All he had now was regrets; although he was very wealthy at the moment, it was just for a while, his wives and children would fight over everything, he wished he could change back the hands of time.  
The bible says in Genesis 18:19 (NLT) I have singled him out so that he will direct his sons and their families to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just. Then I will do for Abraham all that I have promised."
Your major assignment as a husband and father is not to make money, it is to spend QUALITY time with your wife and children. You must deliberately influence the way they think, if you don't do it, television and the Internet will do it for you! 
Many men have no idea of their children's shoe size, clothes or nappies,this should not be so! You are going to wake up one day and all of your children would have grown up! 
Every wise organisation has a succession plan. That job or the money you are chasing cannot guarantee your posterity, your wife and children are the future. If you want to live forever invest quality time in your wife and children,teach them the ways of God and men, let them know the secrets you have learnt in business,   they will also teach your grandchildren and the cycle continues till you have built a dynasty. 
Let me share a secret with you; if you decide to consciously spend time with your family by listening to them, praying together, eating together, studying the bible and just loving them, money will come! 
I urge all fathers and husbands to make up their mind to just be there for their wife and children in the next one month, close early from work and go home, don't hang out with the boys at the weekend, just stay home with your wife and children and just love on them.Watch what God will do  at your workplace or in your business.

Your Tithe is Powerful

"Aunty, please take this money for your upkeep". Lanre said as he squeezed 10,000 Naira into Aunty Bose's hands
" Haaa! Thank you my son, this is a lot of money o, only me? Thank you o"
Lanre got into the car and sped along. She watched the car turn the corner and then she hissed and went into the house. "So this small boy is mocking me abi, because my own children are not doing well, he decided to show off by giving me 10,000, he thinks I am a beggar abi, I will show him not to mess with me, that his money thats making him pompous will soon finish"
Aunty Bose went into her room and brought out a statue carrying a calabash, the statue had palm oil smeared all over it. She began to chant incantations and then she said "Lanre, this is the money you have given me, I am placing it before ogun, let all things that have metal begin to work against you".
As she finished speaking, her eyes began to scratch her and then she couldn't see, she started using her hands to find her way back outside when she tripped on her slippers, she landed on a sharp cutlass, Baba Kunle, her husband put at the corner and she began to bleed, she cried for help but nobody could hear her until she bled to death. It was when Baba Kunle came back in the evening that he discovered her body. He began to cry, he knew his wife was depressed but he never thought she could commit suicide.
The bible says in Malachi 3:11 (ESV) I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the LORD of hosts.
A devourer is anything or anyone who wants to stop the good thing God is doing in your life. God calls Himself, the LORD of Hosts in this verse, it refers to when God is going to battle. The Yoruba bible translates it as "Oluwa Awon Omo Ogun (God of War).
As a tither, whoever messes with the money you pay tithe from or the job or business you get the tithe should get ready for violence.
The word 'rebuke' in Hebrew according to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance means to 'corrupt or reprove'. God says He will contaminate the life of your devourers! If God is facing you in battle, who would you run to? Isaiah 45:9 (GWT) How horrible it will be for the one who quarrels with his maker. He is pottery among other earthenware pots.
Whatever job or business you FAITHFULLY tithe from cannot go down! Even when you have challenges that may seem to take you down, you will realise it was to take you higher!
The tithe also activates the blessing in Genesis 1:28 (NLT) Then God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground."
Don't read all those articles telling you that the tithe is old testament. The tithe was BEFORE the law, it is a spiritual principle! He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying.

Make Someone's Dream Come True

"Good morning oga, how body? Thank you oh, may God continue to bless you, go well".
This was the usual exchange between Idris a civil servant and a beggar who was a mother of twins every morning. Idris would usually give her whatever change he could find on his way to work.
Then one day, Idris thought to himself and decided to change the woman's status, he would do whatever needed to be done so that the woman would stop begging on the streets. After she interviewed the woman, she told him she was very good at frying akara (roasted bean balls). Idris gave her the necessary capital and she began the business.
The woman who was a former beggar now became the number one caterer in the community, she was so good at frying the akara that people came from far and near to patronise her.
Idris was about to close from work when he was told that he had been summoned by the minister. Idris did not know what to expect. As he stepped in, the minister stood up and said "congratulations, I have been observing you for a while, you are now a director, normally it should take you 5 years to become a director but I need you close to me". Idris could not believe his ears; at just 32 years old, he was the youngest director in the civil service, he had made history.
Idris changed the status of a beggar to a business woman and God changed his status from just a civil servant to a director.
The bible says in Proverbs 11:25 (NLT) The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
I am convinced that this is one of the most powerful scriptures in the Bible. In other words, God is saying that you should do to others what you want to see in your life! So if I was single and I wanted to get married, I would make sure I support anyone I know around me getting married financially and in every way possible.
If I needed to build my own house and I knew someone that needed a house to live, I would let the person stay in my house for free or pay the person's rent.
If I had a huge debt that I could not pay off, I would visit the hospital and find out about patients who were not able to clear their debts and pay it off!
God says when you make the effort to make the lives of others better, He will be personally responsible to make your life better! So after making someone's dream come true, you can look up to God and say "I trust you for my harvest,I have refreshed others, refresh me!" then watch what God will do!
Go out today and be sensitive to the problems of people around you and solve them. That's the way to move forward in the Kingdom. God bless you.

Get Your Praise On!

Mama Nkechi eyed Mama Uche and she thought to herself, "this woman must have a very strong juju man. How can both of us be selling the same thing and she has had 10 customers this morning yet nobody has asked me what I am selling?" she knew she had to find out Mama Nkechi's secret, she would begin to monitor the things Mama Nkechi did every morning.
Mama Uche was at her stall very early in the morning waiting for Mama Nkechi. Shortly after, Mama Nkechi arrived and the first thing she did was to sing praises to God, for the next 30 minutes, Mama Nkechi sang and danced, then she prayed and opened up for business.
In less than 30 minutes, customers began to come and they kept coming throughout the day. The next morning, Mama Uche got to her shop early and began to sing and dance just like she saw Mama Nkechi do and business also began to come in for her.
The dumbest people on the face of the earth are envious people. If you see something good happening to your Christian friend or neighbour don't envy them, it means God is in the neighbourhood, ask questions or observe what they do and do likewise. You may not know the way to Lagos but if you drive behind a car going to Lagos, you will get there.
There is no monopoly to God, everyone has access, the difference is that some people have revelations about the keys of the Kingdom; praise and worship is a major key in the Kingdom of God. Everything you thank and praise God about will multiply.
Psalm 67:5-6 (KJV) says Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
‪#‎Then‬ shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up? Is your alarm signal a worship song? What is the first thing you do when you get to your office or shop? Do you praise God?
The key to prosperity is not hard work! It is praises and thanksgiving to God! When you are a worshipper, you connect to the industry in heaven. All that is ever done in heaven is praise and worship! When you work for heaven, your earthly needs will be supernaturally met.
What is the first thing you will do when you get to your office or shop today? Yep! You will praise God! And as you do everything that belongs to you that's been pending in that office will be given to you, your promotion will come, your salary will increase, your customers will double. It is impossible to praise God constantly and stay on a spot. Praise God!

Are You Dating A Married Man?

Hello sweetheart, you didn't come last night, I am angry o, is it because of your wife? Jennifer rolled her eyes and planted a kiss on Rotimi's lips. " I am sorry dear, she's beginning to suspect me" Rotimi said.
"Ehen so you are ashamed of me?" Jennifer feigned anger and backed Rotimi. She smiled to herself, she had him right where she wanted.
All these married men were just fools, she preferred them to single guys, they were so easy to deal with, all you had to do was make them feel guilty and they would give you anything. Rotimi was just one of four married men she was dating. When she finished her youth service, she would ditch all of them and find a rich, young man from a good family and she would settle down.
A year later, Jennifer completed her NYSC and started working at a bank. It was at the bank she met Victor. He was such a gentleman, very quiet and unassuming and of course he was rich.
They had a beautiful wedding and Jennifer was the envy of all her friends. She was so happy, she had it all, she and her husband would live happily ever after.
The night after their wedding, Victor was on the phone for 2 hours while she waited in her sexiest lingerie, he was laughing and smiling throughout and when she asked him, he said it was a business call, she didn't want to start doubting him so early in their marriage so she let it go.
She began to notice that something was wrong when her husband's driver thanked her for the food she always prepared for him. She was surprised because the food was meant for her husband. She decided to probe further and the driver informed her that Oga always ate the food prepared by his secretary Ekaette.
She felt like someone hit a hammer on her head and she decided to confront her husband when he came back from work. Victor did not deny his affair with his secretary, he looked at Jennifer straight in the eye and told her to respect herself as his wife.
He told her that he didn't marry his secretary because he loved Jennifer but his secretary Ekaette would always be a part of his life unless she decided to leave him and then he dropped the bombshell; Ekaette was pregnant.
Jennifer fainted but she was quickly revived. She weighed her options, if she decided to leave her husband, she had a lot to lose and that witch called Ekaette would become his wife, never! She would not let that happen. She would accept her fate.
The bible says in Galatians 6:7 (ESV) Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
Are you a lady dating a married man or married men? You are creating the kind of future you want for your marriage. Always bear in mind that you will always reap more than you sow. Are you dating another woman's husband because he gives you money for clothes and phones and because you need to pay for your house rent?
It is better to use a Techno phone, wear second hand clothes and squat with a friend than to destroy your future. Go on your knees and ask God to help you then call off the relationship. God will reward you for doing the right thing. He is merciful to those who seek His mercy.

Adultery is Deadly

"Don't leave us like this, fear God, look at your daughter, what happened to you, this is not natural o". Shola cried and pleaded as her husband packed his things out of the house, she never believed a day like this could come. Her husband was the most prayerful, loving and caring man she knew until 2 years ago when he won a contract worth a million dollars.
Shola and Jide started from the scratch, it was love and God that held them together; even though they faced a lot of challenges, nothing was strong enough to tear them apart.
The change started when Jide came back from a business trip in America. He started chatting on the phone a lot and he put a password on his phone, this was something he never did. Shola was able to snoop though Jide's phone on the day he forgot to password it; tears began to fall from her eyes, her husband was having an affair.
She discovered that the woman was Franca, Jide's ex girlfriend and she was married. According to the chat, she left Jide because he was very poor back in the days they were dating and it seemed as though Jide never got over her. Now that Jide had money, she wanted to leave her husband if Jide would leave his wife.
Shola felt as though a hot iron had pierced through her heart, the pain was indescribable. When Jide saw her with his phone, he was shocked, he knew from the tears that she saw everything.
"Have you forgotten you are a Christian? Have you forgotten what the bible said?". "I am sorry you had to find out this way Shola but life is short, I need to be with who makes me the happiest".
Jide eloped with Franca and they seemed happy for a while. The first tragedy that struck was that Jide's business began to decline, then he discovered that Franca was fetish; he discovered a pot with palm oil and leaves under their bed and then Jide fell sick. A year later, he was dead. Shola mourned her husband for a while, few years later, God sent her another man. Today she's happily married with a baby boy in her new home.
The bible says in Proverbs 6: 26-33 (NLT) For a prostitute will bring you to poverty,b
but sleeping with another man’s wife will cost you your life.
27Can a man scoop a flame into his lap
and not have his clothes catch on fire?
28Can he walk on hot coals
and not blister his feet?
29So it is with the man who sleeps with another man’s wife.
He who embraces her will not go unpunished.
30Excuses might be found for a thief
who steals because he is starving.
31But if he is caught, he must pay back seven times what he stole,
even if he has to sell everything in his house.
32But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool,
for he destroys himself.
33He will be wounded and disgraced.
His shame will never be erased.

If you are a married man and you have started longing for another woman or an ex girlfriend you wished you married. Listen! That is the devil at work, he is trying to destroy you, run for your life! You cannot fully recover the moment you cross that path.
Do the right thing, do whatever needs to be done! Delete her from your phones, stop talking to her. She may be offended but it will keep you alive. May God have mercy on us all.

Don't Starve Your Spouse Sexually

"Don't touch me jo, don't you know more than sex? The one we did last night is enough abeg, sex is not food".
Linda rolled over and faced the wall. It was not like she wasn't interested, she just wanted to punish her husband because he didn't give her the money she asked him for, she would continue to refuse him until he finally gets the message and gives her the money.
Victor also made up his mind not to ask Linda for sex again, she will be the one to come to him and he too would refuse her.
The bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:5 (NLT) Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won't be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
Lovemaking is the holy communion of marriage. When a couple stops making love, it's the beginning of the end. The day your partner's body stops exciting you is the day the devil entered your home.
Lovemaking in marriage is not just an act, it's the pillar that preserves the institution.
When you make love to your husband, you must understand that it's his last resort, it's the only thing he cannot share with anyone. It's his most vulnerable moment, it's the only time he surrenders 100%.
Love making is not something that just happens; it starts with the mind and the deliberate investment of good feelings. You cannot call your husband / wife an idiot and expect him/ her to make love to you the next minute.
Sex relives tension in marriage , couples who have a lot of sex cannot stay angry at each other. Consciously create the atmosphere and time in your marriage. Don't be too busy that you don't have the time to make love.
When a man is denied sex at home, he begins to notice his secretary's nice shape and his colleagues' long legs. A man who is not sex starved will stay focused. Keep the devil out of your marriage, make love to your husband/wife.

Whose Voice Do You Listen To?

Janet lay on her deathbed with tears in her eyes, her life flashed before her eyes and she regretted listening to all the advice she had ever followed.
At just 24 years old, Janet was dying from HIV/AIDS because she listened to and followed the wrong advice. Janet's father left for good when she was 5 years old and she was raised by her mum. For as long as she could remember, her mum always told her "men are unreliable, you have to use what you have to get what you want". Her mum was the only person who really cared about her and she trusted and believed anything her mother said.
At 18 years old, Janet was an irresistible beauty. Her skin was smooth and shone like butter, her long black hair reached down to her waist, her brown eyes always sparkled as though tinged with fire, her voice was soft and sweet, her laugh was hearty and infectious.
She was every man's dream and they came to her in droves; the young, the old and all of them were rich. Her mum had warned her never to have anything to do with any man who did not have money.
She slept with all of them, she never turned back any man as long as he had money and she changed their status; they moved from a one bedroom to a beautiful 6 bedroom mansion. She began to think of investing the money she had accumulated in the last 6 years when she fell sick; the doctor told her she was HIV positive, she could feel her world crumble.
Janet stared at her mum, her brown eyes flashed like fire and she said "Mummy you led me to this point, I will never forgive you". Janet breathed her last and died.
The most tragic thing that could happen to any man is to follow the wrong advice. The wrong advice could ruin your life and you would never realise it till the very end. Whose advice are you following? Whose voice do you trust?
Please listen to me! Don't follow the advice of any man who is not submitted to God! Before you take that man's advice, does he love God? Is he submitted to his pastor? Does he think he is smarter than God? Does he pay his tithe? Does he think the church is an occasional event? Don't follow any man who does not make the bible his final authority!
Many destinies have been truncated because of wrong advice. The bible says ' the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom' (Proverbs 1:7). If he fears the Lord, he will give good advice.
Don't take advice from a man because he has money and has many cars and beautiful clothes. The devil gives all those as well. Take advice from a man because you see the fruit of his relationship with God. May God help us not to follow the wrong people. Amen

Be Humble

"Oga na 3 for 100 naira", Deji paid for the oranges and he began to think to himself; this woman selling oranges in traffic was a sales executive just like him, she sold oranges and he sold houses. He thought of the days when he used to help his mum sell pure water after school and it dawned on him that he could actually have been the one selling oranges but for the grace of God.
He called the woman back and gave her N5000. The orange seller and his driver were both shocked but he said to them "I have been there before and I understand what you are going through"
The difference between a mama put cook and a chef is the grace of God! You could pay N500 for a very tasty meal at a mama put under a canopy and then you visit an upscale restaurant and pay N7000 and the food tastes bland!
Don't ever get to a stage in your life when you believe things are working for you because you know how to do it, its the grace of God on your life!
The bible said in Deuteronomy 8: 11-18 (ESV) 12lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, 13and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, 14then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORDyour God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, 15who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, 16who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. 17Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ 18You shall‪#‎remember‬ theLORD your God, for it is he who gives you ‪#‎power‬ to get‪#‎wealth‬, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
Always put God first and acknowledge Him always. The day you begin to feel like you don't need God is the beginning of the end for you. Let humility be your fragrance. There are no successful men, all we have are HELPED men! God used someone for you, it was not by your strength or efforts. It just pleased God to promote you. May God help us all. Amen

You are Untouchable

Suraju sat under the bridge and smoked his marijuana in short, deep puffs. This was his last wrap and he needed to go and hustle money to buy more wraps and also to pay Sule his dealer.
All he did everyday was to watch out for vulnerable people he could manhandle and rob of their phones and jewellery. As he was observing passersby, he saw a lady open the door to a wine GLA 2015 Mercedes Benz. He waited a while to see that she was alone, he began to smile;God had sent him his daily bread.
He thought of the best way to get her scared; he would first of all slap her, she looked so fresh, he doubted if anyone had slapped her before, he would give her the "igbaju oloyi" (cover slap). He laughed to himself, the last victim he gave the slap pissed on herself.
He stood up and put some bounce in his step, he was close to the vehicle when he suddenly shouted "yeeee" somebody slapped him from the back,he felt his jaw shift and he spat out a tooth with blood and saliva. He had never been slapped that way before and as he turned around, he saw a giant, he did not know that human beings could be that huge.
The man asked him what he wanted to do and he quickly lied that he was a load carrier. All the while, the lady did not know what was going on, it was Suraju's cries that caught her attention. She chided her bodyguard for being too harsh on someone who was just a load carrier and then out of pity, she gave Suraju N500 to help her carry all the goods she bought from the market.
The bible says in Proverbs 16:7 (ESV) When a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
People are not at peace with you in your office, in your business and in your family because they just like your face, many have tried to harm you and God has slapped them that's why they are at peace with you! The devil is an oppressor, even if you don't look for his trouble, he will look for your trouble but he knows that touching you is touching God so he keeps away from you.
The devil said about Job in Job 1:9-10 (NIV) Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has?
Beloved, God has put a hedge around you that is why the devil cannot touch you. He tries to make you fear by bringing bad dreams and whispering bad thoughts but the truth is if the devil could touch you, he would have done so already! Stop believing those dreams! Believe what the word says that "No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn" Isaiah 54:17 (NASB)
God has said about you in Numbers 23:23 (NLT) No curse can touch Jacob; no magic has any power against Israel.
Be confident that God is with you and any plans of the enemy will fail. God has put an automatic back to sender on you. He said in Genesis 12:3 (NIV) I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;
Know for certain that "you de kampe" you belong to the Most High God, you are untouchable!

Your Enemy Has No Clue

Emeka was the only black boy in his school and all the white boys used to pick on him and call him a monkey. Emeka was so tired of all the bullying that he decided to learn karate and boxing just to defend himself.
The bullies came to taunt Emeka again and instead of running away or begging like he would have done in the past, he gave them the beating of their lives. Nobody ever dared to bully Emeka again.
20 years later, Emeka contested for the governorship election of his state and won. Emeka's political party had exactly half of the national assembly, this meant that the opposition could impeach him if one of his party members decided to cross to the other party.
The politicians in the state saw the situation and decided to blackmail Emeka by requesting a lot of money from him. Unknown to them, Emeka recorded and video taped the whole conversation and then he leaked it to the press. The public were impressed and loved him more because for the first time, they were proud that they had a governor who could not be blackmailed.
What are those difficult experiences you have been through that you eventually conquered? What are those life threatening experiences that you survived? It was God preparing you for the challenges of the future.
King David said in 1 Samuel 17:36 (ESV)Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.”
Your enemy has no clue that you have conquered his type before. Your enemy will not know until the last minute that he was wrong to underestimate you. Just like Goliath was shocked by David, may your enemies be shocked this week. This is your season of victory, all those who are waiting to laugh at you will cover their heads in shame in Jesus name.

This Is Not The End

Olusegun Obasanjo knelt down on the floor and prayed. He was 60 years old today and at his age, he had seen it all; he had been Nigerian military head of state, his friends were powerful people all over the world including the president of the United States yet here he was in prison. He who had been so celebrated was now the same person that made his friends cry whenever they saw him. Yakubu Danjuma who was known to be a very diplomatic person could not hold back tears when he came to greet his former head of state in Yola prison.
Despite all of the challenges, he was grateful because he had life, his colleague General Yaradua whom General Abacha sent to jail the same time as he was already dead. He truly had a lot to be thankful for.
All of his life, he had been a religious man but prison brought him closer to God. He had become a man of prayer, he even wrote a book on prayer from the prison. It was during prayer that God began to tell him that his future was brighter than his past.
Sometime later, Olusegun Obasanjo left prison and became Nigeria's president for 8 years. He became the only man in the history of Nigeria to hold 3 terms in office. (I read Gen. Obasanjo's book 'My Watch')
Beloved, if you carry the seed of greatness in you, you will face great challenges. Don't try to run from those challenges no matter how humiliating they may be, there are lessons God is using that phase of your life to teach you. One of the lessons is usually a spiritual rebirth; God brings you closer to Himself and begins to tell you about the future He has for you. The things God will tell you will look impossible but that's why He is God!
Whatever you are going through is not the end of your life. Your future is brighter and glamorous than all the challenges you have faced. Joseph who was a prisoner in Egypt for many years named his firstborn Mannaseh because he said God has made him forget all his troubles (Genesis 41:51). God can and He will make you forget all that you are going through right now. The nights when you cry yourself to sleep, the nights when worry and fear kept you awake, the days you were humiliated and offended, the days you felt as though God had abandoned you. God will make you forget and then He will exalt you beyond your wildest imaginations.
I want you to praise God in church today with the understanding that the future is brighter and God has greatness in store for you. It happened for Joseph, it happened for Obasanjo, it will happen for you!

Let It Go!

"Do you want to slap me again? Slap me now, shameless man". Cindy was fond of manipulating Jamie,her husband whenever they had an argument. He had hit her 2 years ago when out of a jealous rage she smashed his windscreen because she thought he was cheating on her. He immediately realised what he had done and he apologised profusely and since that time no matter the provocation, he would never lay his hands on his wife. It was the most shameful thing he had ever done in his life.
Cindy knew that was her husband's weakness and she never let him forget it, to her it was her trump card to keep her husband in check. Whenever cases of domestic abuse was discussed on TV, radio or in the church, she always gave her husband that "they are talking about you" look. It had become her weapon to blackmail, extort money and have her way all the time.
Jamie knew he was a good man, it was just unfortunate what happened in the past, he never believed he could hit a woman in his life, it was bad enough that it happened but now his wife would not let it go. The truth is he didn't feel like coming home any longer, he was tired of all the manipulation and blackmail. What should Jamie do?
If you are a married woman or you are in a relationship and you are fond of bringing up the past all the time because it makes your husband or partner let you have your way, the truth is you won't have that man for long. One day he will break down because he would be tired of all the mind games and he would leave you for good. Every man gravitates towards the woman who speaks to the king in him not the woman who speaks to the fool in him.
There are so many women with good men who never appreciate all the good he has done and he's doing for them but whenever he makes any mistake, you are quick to condemn him and call him names.
Madam/ babe, I will tell you the truth, what you are practising is witchcraft and it is demonic! The bible says about the proverbs 31 woman (Proverbs 31:11-12)Her husband can trust her,and she will greatly enrich his life.She brings him good, not harm,all the days of her life.
Whatever he did may be painful but your target should be how to let it go! No man can survive in an atmosphere where he is constantly reminded of his failures and weaknesses. Pray for the grace to let it go. You and that man are ‪#‎BetterTogether‬

"Haa, thank God she is awake! Doctorrrr! Doctor ohhh" Jennifer opened her eyes and tried to get up, her head and shoulders hurt. Why was she on a hospital bed? Why was her mum screaming? All of a sudden, it came back to her; she was rushing to the office and she was on top speed when her phone rang. She wanted to see who was calling and she took her eyes off the road, the next thing she saw was a huge truck and after that, everything went black.
The greatest tragedies in life can be traced to distractions. A married man who noticed the hot legs of his secretary and started an affair that led to the break up of his marriage, the university student who was sent to school to study but got involved in cultism and was killed before he could graduate. The secondary school girl who dropped out of school because she got pregnant.
Distractions are deadly! Take a minute to think about the things that have been a major source of distraction in your life. Who is that friend that always makes you spend the money you wanted to save? Who is that guy/ girl that's always coming back to beg you when you want to move on and then he/she misbehaves again?
Apostle Paul said in Philipians 3:13 (NLT) No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I ‪#‎focus‬ on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead...
Make up your mind to banish anything and anyone that is a source of distraction to the goals you have set for yourself in 2015. This is your year of results and major achievements. May God help us all.

Pastor Gives Birth to Twins at Age 55

One of my readers sent in this awesome testimony. It will bless you. Enjoy...
The woman of God (mother of the twins) is a friend of my aunt we all address her as mummy and her husband as daddy. Now to my testimony. The couple are both servants of God in a ministry in Atlanta, GA and have been married for 24 years without a child or mummy getting pregnant for a day. They went for series of tests in Europe and America , they have been to the best gynecologists in the world but nothing went through until they both decided to leave it all to God to face the ministry God called them to.

Many were blessed with children through their ministry; babies were dedicated year to year in the church, they were made god parents to many. and of course the devil always tried  to sow confusion in the house of God. Some church members started questioning why they prayed for women looking for the fruit of the womb whom were blessed and they couldn't pray for themselves to receive such blessing but all that did not stop them from doing the work of God, they continued to pray, fast, pay their tithes, sow seeds basically do everything that  God required them to do. The beautiful thing about mummy and daddy was that their whole house was decorated with pictures of all their god children (talk about calling forth your blessings).

Sometime last year, mummy was going through the Word as usual and in the midst of it she paused to ask God where He was and if He hears her prayers,  daddy heard her and encouraged her not to worry that God that did it for Sarah is still the same God and if it's God's will for them to be blessed then He will bless them and that same month Mummy took in for the first time in her life at 55 years of age! Even the doctors were surprised and tried to tell her that her that she was a high risk pregnant woman but she turned to God in faith and prayer to see her through, she cancelled so many doctor appointments because she believed only in the report of God to see her through which He did all through the 9 months, a huge baby shower was planned but to the glory of God the twins came a day to the baby shower.

The delivery was smooth, no complications, nothing at all, God proved the doctors and science wrong again leaving them all surprised. Today, mummy and daddy are blessed with twin healthy baby boys (Taiye  and Kehinde) and have added their pictures to the rest of the pictures in their home.
  Glory be to God and thank you sir, for an opportunity to share this huge testimony on your blog. God bless you and your ministry, Amen.
