Benny Hinn Live at COZA

Dr Benny Hinn will be at COZA tomorrow by Gods grace and it will be a life changing experience. The anointing on him is not just for healing and deliverance, you may be thinking that you are not sick in your body and you are coming for a show to see what people will experience but what I want you to know is that there is an anointing on your life that the power of God can activate!

Every child of God is anointed for something, it could be for business, for finance, for healing and deliverance, for wisdom, for ideas. There is an anointing on your life! The anointing is like electricity, you can use electricity to boil water, iron your clothes, watch TV, charge your phone, turn on the AC and many more, that is the same way the anointing is diverse in its working. 

Today and tomorrow consecrate yourself. What does it mean to consecrate? Whenever God wanted to come and do miracles and exploits for the Israelites, He would ask them to consecrate themselves. It means to set yourself apart,  prepare yourself in 3 areas:

1. In prayers: speak in tongues a lot 
2. In reading the word: you can listen to Dr. Benny's messages and watch him on YouTube, your faith and expectation will rise.
3. Create an atmosphere of worship: Music ushers in the presence of God, create an atmosphere of worship all over your house and office. 

My DSTV subscription expired yesterday but I am not fixing it until after Dr Benny Hinn because I want to focus. Tomorrow will be unforgettable for me how about you?

Give Him A Chance

Many women have missed it because they couldn't see beyond their noses, they treated the man that could have married them like trash, they frustrated him and belittled him, they broke his heart and so he moved on. Five years after that they are still single and the man they took for granted is now married and doing very well.

For some women they could be battling with making a choice but if you see these attributes in any man and you like him and he is asking you to marry him please consider.

1. He doesn't want to sleep with you before marriage:  many single men pray and go to church but when it comes to sex, they are unbelieving believers, they are struggling and resisting temptation is a major issue. If you see a man who flees from sexual temptation, that man is going somewhere.

2. He is a giver: He may not have much but he tithes, sows seeds and just keeps giving despite what he is going through, that man is going somewhere.

3. He is a big talker: he may not have a car or even 10k in his account yet he is telling you that he will build mansions and own businesses all over the world. Any man who can dream big will eventually be big.

4. Confidence: with his one good shoe and two pairs of suits, he dresses and walks like he owns the whole place. Watch out for that man.

5. He has a habit of prayer and gratitude: any man who prays constantly and who has a habit of gratitude cannot stay down.

Do you know any man like this? Give him a chance. The bible says in Zechariah 4:10

Listen To The Right Things

There is an undeveloped piece of land near my house but as I was doing my exercise this morning, I noticed that the land had been cleared and they were preparing to build and I thought to myself that while some are complaining some of US ( the caps are intentional 😁) are in the best season of our lives.

Don't listen to what people are saying! Were you born on the same day? Has God been consulting them about the quality of your life?

I need you to focus and listen to only good news, if CNN is depressing, stop watching it! Surround yourself with  people who are living well and people who are thriving. You will suddenly notice that there is another side to life that you don't hear and see on the news!

There is always abundance! But if you don't look out for it you won't see it! The bible says in Psalm 110:2 rule in the midst of your enemies! This is your best season ever but for you to experience it you must SEE it! Surround yourself with people who are living that life and you will attract it!

Is Jesus The Lord of Your Life?

"Preach Pastor! My God! Haaa, what a revelation!" Paul was a passionate Christian, He was always sitting in front and he would stand up, speak in tongues and walk around a bit whenever pastor made a valid point but with all the passion, there were no results. Paul was very poor, he couldn't afford a 3 square meal. Sometimes he had to walk home from church. Many times he would be angry at God because he didn't know why he wasn't getting results.

If you sit in front at church and you are always on fire for God, you better know what you are doing and make sure you are really serving God because people watch you and you better have results for all that passion!

The devil has many strategies that is destroying Christians one of them is a twisted mindset, the devil twists what the bible says. It was the same strategy the devil used for Eve.

My biggest fear in life is believing a lie, imagine that everything you believed for 20 years was a lie. So how then do you know the truth? There is only one way and that is the bible! Jesus and His word are one.

The reason why many Christians are struggling is because they have not made Jesus the LORD of their lives. They love God but they have not relinquished the control of their lives to Him. How do you know Jesus is the LORD of your life? You simply do and think what the bible says!

When the bible says don't be unequally yoked with unbelievers, there is no need praying about a guy or a girl that you met who is not a Christian. The word of God says to tithe but you have another idea. The bible says to forgive but you can hold a grudge for five years. Jesus is not LORD in your life if you live like this.

Some Christians listen to the voices in their head more than they read the bible. Any voice you hear must be backed up by the bible. Always verify! My brothers and sisters is Jesus TRULY the Lord of your life?

Be Delivered From Wicked and Unreasonable People

"And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith". 2 Thessalonians 3:2 

If you will be great, the devil will send some wicked and unreasonable people your way, they will try to destroy you but if you are a son of the living God, you will overcome. 

Joseph had his brothers and Portiphar's wife as the wicked and unreasonable people in his life, for David it was King Saul, for the Jews it was Adolf Hitler. These people only have one ambition and it is to destroy you no matter what it takes. 

How do you recognize the wicked and unreasonable people in your life?

1. They are possessed: medical terms call it personality disorders, depression and many more. They had issues with their childhood either they were raped or beaten up or unloved. They didn't grow up like normal people and they began to feed an hatred that opened doors to demons. 

2. They are good pretenders: they could be the most charming people on the earth when they want to, they are also amazing liars. They lie effortlessly and you would never know its a lie if you didn't know them. They find it easy to accuse people falsely. 

3. They are calculative master planners: they can plan how they will have their revenge for 5 years and they will know exactly when to strike. 

4. They are control freaks: they must be in charge! If this kind of person is your boss, they want you to do exactly what they want. They panic when they can't control you and they won't rest till they let you do what they want and how they want it. 

5. They complain and never have any good thing to say about anybody. They nag about everything and nothing is ever good enough. If you are the object of their hatred, they will badmouth you everywhere. 

If you know someone like this, you are dealing with a wicked and unreasonable person. How do you deal with them?

1. Pray a lot
2. You will get angry but don't get bitter, no matter what, be quick to forgive, it won't be easy
3. Make up your mind not to be afraid of them, they like to scare people, their driving force is fear.  See them as little lost puppies.
4. Be happy always

What Do You See?

I remember when I was starting Sapphire Scents, a couple of people told me "what are you doing? You are selling this Hausa perfume?", "perfumes don't sell" and lots of other comments like that. 

I have always had the gift of knowing good perfumes but I never knew that my nose would one day be making money for me. While others associated Oud with the northerners, I knew there was more to these scents, why would all the top designers in the world from Tom Ford, Gucci, Christian Dior and Armani dedicate a line to Oud perfumes?  Even though they  sell the synthetic ones. 

I did my research and I discovered the history of Oud and its pedigree and prestige. You must be knowledgeable about your business otherwise people will destroy your self esteem because of your ignorance. The more I read the more I knew I was on the right track. In just a year Sapphire Scents is worth over 20 million Naira and this is a business that started with just N30,000.

Banish, disassociate, stay away from people who don't see what you are seeing. Perception is EVERYTHING! You may be selling pure water but why is your water different from others? You must know your difference and don't let anybody disrespect your business. 

The bible says as a man thinks so is he. What do you think about yourself and your business? Your thoughts will produce your results.

Lessons from Lenny LeBlanc

Lessons from my meeting with Lenny LeBlanc

Yesterday I met with Lenny LeBlanc,💃💃💃😁😁😁😁 we were at the dining room of the Protea Hotel, I was getting what to eat at the buffet and he was getting the chef to fry some eggs when he turned to look at me and he said "you look familiar" I said his face looked familiar too but I wasn't sure. 

We got our food and settled on the same table and then I asked for his name and he said "Lenny", suddenly it dawned on me and I said "Lenny Leblanc?" He said "yeah" and I just freaked out!  Say what! I had been listening to his songs for years. He and Don Moen composed the award winning song "Above All" and many more others. 

This was an icon in front of me, at 65, he was still a very stylish man. As is my custom, I squeezed a lot of wisdom out of him especially about music.

1. Should Gospel artistes sing or associate with secular artistes? Lenny said that one of the biggest harvest of souls he ever experienced were at secular concerts. Imagine a Nikki Minaj show for instance and after that a gospel artiste takes the stage, he said he had experienced many people who started crying and gave their life to Jesus at secular concerts. 

2. Networking is important: one of my favorite gospel artistes is Terry Macalmon but I was surprised that Lenny LeBlanc didn't know him. I ended up playing his songs for Lenny. My lesson from that is you must not  only be good at what you do, you must associate with like minds. He knew Frank Edwards but he didn't know Terry Macalmon! 

There are many more but I will stop here. Happy Sunday.

Marry For The Right Reasons

I remember dating a girl who started misbehaving because I couldn't afford to buy her the kind of phone she wanted. She eventually found a yahoo boy who bought her the phone, she slept with him then I found out and we broke up. Few weeks later, the yahoo boy just disappeared, he was a married man based in South Africa. 

The reason why many women are single is because they can't see beyond their noses. They want what their grandfather, their father and their whole generation never had or could afford.  It's a good thing to marry beyond your social status but do it for the right reasons, do it because you genuinely fell in love. 

Don't fall in love when you see his Mercedes or his house. Those things will give you comfort but you may never be truly happy.  

Selah (Pause and think deeply)

Expect An Idea

Nonso had been saving for a car, he really needed a car desperately but his savings were not adding up. He was in church one day and as his pastor preached, he heard the Holy Spirit tell him to sow the savings for his car, he resisted the voice but the more he tried to ignore it, the more he knew for certain that it was the Holy Spirit so when the offering envelope passed, he wrote out a cheque and dropped the savings, he felt like crying but he had seen God's hand enough in his life to know God would not ask him for a seed if his harvest was not nearby.

Nonso danced in church that day not because he understood what was going on but because He trusted God.

A few weeks later, Nonso got an idea to start exporting indomie from Nigeria. In a month Nonso had more than enough money to buy two cars.

Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to know something that will change your life forever. When you sow a seed don't expect money back! Expect an IDEA! They don't spend money in heaven so God channels it through a suggestion or a thought that can change your life forever.

There are ideas that will give you 100,000 Naira, there are ideas that will give you 10 million Naira, the Holy Spirit holds all of these in His wisdom. The bible says in Isaiah 48:17 (ESV) Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.

The Holy Spirit can teach you! You will be sitting jejely 😁😁 and the idea will just explode in your head! I have enjoyed this level many times! The Holy Spirit recently gave me an idea that brought me a million Naira CASH! in a day 😁😁💃💃

Take a minute and pray; "Precious Holy Spirit, I cherish Your mentorship, teach me to profit, help me to hear Your voice clearly in Jesus name. "

Don't Worry, Pray!

Are you in a situation where everything is upside down? No money, debtors calling, wife nagging and those who are to help are not picking your calls?

The first thing I want you to do is what the bible says; don't start calling people and running everywhere, pray first! The bible says in Phillipians 4:6 (NLT) 
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

Wow! This scripture is such a deliverer! So when you want to worry, pray! 

Another key is to REMEMBER! Many people have a prayer list but very few people have a THANKSGIVING list.  Whatever you thank God for multiplies. Take a minute after reading this post and write down everything God has done for you and start thanking Him about it everyday! You will notice that your results will be different. 

That situation will not kill you, it is to bring out the best in you! Orange juice will always be more expensive than an orange fruit but never forget that the orange was squeezed before it became the toast of parties. You are getting squeezed right now but it will bring out the best in you, you are going through fire right now but you are gold, you will shine brighter.

The Secret of Success in Business

There is a secret everyone who ever wants to do business should know. I am convinced this is responsible for failed businesses everywhere but if you master this principle, you will watch your business soar. There are many others but this is crucial.


A farmer can only be confident of harvest when he has planted seed! A man can only be confident that his wife will be pregnant after he has deposited sperm in her!

The same way, a business man can only be confident that his business will yield returns when he has planted seed at the level he wants to see returns.  For instance; if you have not given away a million before, you cannot command millions, it may come to you sometimes but you will not operate  at that level constantly.

The strategy is to give at the level you want to start doing business and you will see that money will start coming at that level too. This law works for everyone either Christian, Muslim, Buddhist regardless of what you believe in. It is the law of seed time and harvest!

If you visited the Forbes list, you will see  the list of the wealthiest people in the world. Forbes will tell you how much they are worth and how much they have given away.  In the past I used to think that they gave because had so much but the truth is that THEY HAVE BECAUSE THEY GIVE!

How and who do you give to?
1. Give to God: this is the surest investment in the world, if someone wants to invest in your business, make sure you pay your tithe from that investment money, that is the only guarantee that the money will come back!

2. Give to the poor: Ecclesiastes 11:1 (MSG) says "Invest in acts of charity, it yields high returns"
Are you a businessman? Do business God's way and your results will shock you!

 Proverbs 3:5-6 5Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.a

You Will Meet Helpers

"Dear Jesus please help my business, you helped me to start but things are getting difficult, I need your help" 

As John prayed, the Holy Spirit nudged him to check 1 Samuel 10:3-4 (NIV) Then you will go on from there until you reach the great tree of Tabor. Three men going up to worship God at Bethel will meet you there. One will be carrying three young goats, another three loaves of bread, and another a skin of wine. 4They will greet you and offer you two loaves of bread, which you will accept from them.

The Holy Spirit began to tell John that help is on the way, he would not have to struggle, it would happen effortlessly. 

Two days later, a gentleman walked into John's office and offered to invest $100,000. John just began to weep like a baby. 

Are you a business owner or you are planning on running your business, God is asking me to tell you not to be afraid, He said you should step out, you may not see anything right now but there is help on the way! Don't be afraid to take that step, it will change your life, your destiny is bigger than that office, it is time to move on.

I don't know who I am talking to but if you are the one there will be a confirmation in your spirit, it will resonate with what God has been telling you to do that you have been struggling with. Grace is on you in Jesus name.

How To Keep Your Wife

" I don't know what is wrong with my wife, there is no respect for me at all and I literally have to beg for sex, the only time I ever see her smile is when she's chatting on her phone. I hope she's not cheating on me"

Many men are married to women who just stay in the union because of their children or because they have nowhere to go. If many women were given the opportunity, they would quit their marriages without a thought.  How can men keep their wives and homes happy?

1. Be a provider; the bible says that the man who cannot provide for his family has lost his faith and is worse than an infidel (1 Timothy 5:8). A Yoruba proverb also says "owo la fi n soko obinrin" which means "money is the tool by which you prove that you are indeed a woman's husband". 

Your wife doesn't have to work or pay out of the rent or the school fees. It is YOUR responsibility as a man, it's not for both of you! She may decide to help but if you are a smart man, you will let her keep her money or make sure you return it to her with interest. 

2. Good sex: Ease up on sugar and alcohol, it will affect your sex life, no woman wants a one minute man. Sexual satisfaction is very important in marriage, if you fail in this one, there is fire on the mountain, get all the help you can. 

3. Respect: Your wife doesn't belong to your kitchen, your living room and the other room, she belongs by your side! Treat her like a queen and protect her with your life. I remember starting a fight sometime ago because someone talked to my wife anyhow. Let people know you will start world war 3 if your wife is disrespected.  She is that important and valuable and people will treat your wife the way you treat her. 

4. Spend time with her: Don't be forming friendship on the bed when she knows that it's because you are looking for something 😂😂😂 be genuinely friends, share gists, take her out, don't be husband and wife, be boyfriend and girlfriend. 

5. Pray for her: the biggest secret I have learnt about marriage is prayer, couples who pray together, stay together, pray for each other everyday. Prayer is the seed for unity. 

May God help us all in Jesus name.

How To Keep Your Husband

"I don't know what is wrong with my husband, he hardly talks to me, he doesn't enjoy spending time with me and our sex life is becoming stagnant, I just hope he is not cheating on me"

Many women are losing their husbands because they don't know how to keep him. You should remain the most exciting human to your husband for the rest of his life if you know how but unfortunately, many women simply don't get it. How can you keep your husband?

1. Sex: some women have no sexual talent( I pity their husband o😂😂😁) it's good to be a prayer warrior and to be filled with the Holy Spirit but in the bedroom all of that doesn't matter, a man is looking for a pornstar who will make all his sexual fantasies come to pass. Some women say they can't touch a certain part of their husband. In the words of our former First Lady "kontinu". Marriage is for life, step up your game, don't just lie there like a log of wood. Be the one to initiate sex from now on, if he knows you are waiting for him on the bed, he will rush home! 😁😁😁

2. Finesse: You and your husband started from Ajegunle but now you are living at Lekki, he is now a multi millionaire but you are still dressing and talking like a village girl, you will lose that man. As God blesses your husband and things get better, improve on yourself too, take it very seriously, dress better, learn the etiquettes of your new level, you will be indispensable to him.

3. Know his business: if your husband had to travel can you handle his business? There is nothing we do at Sapphire Scents that my wife doesn't know about or cannot handle. Your husband may not have the patience to teach you but learn by asking questions and observing how he does his business.

4. Stay in shape: I found out from fitness coaches that all those excuses women give are lies "we are fat in our family", "I have big bones". A woman out of shape is a woman who is not passionate about discipline. Make the effort, it is a small price to pay for your marriage.
May God help us all in Jesus name.

Tomorrow I will talk about how men can keep their wives.

Give God The First and Best

If you drive your car without holding the wheel, you will end up in a ditch, if you kept a pot of soup for 3 days without warming it, the soup will spoil, the moment you drive a brand new car out of a shop, its value deteriorates! Ever since the fall of man, life has always gone down.

Therefore increase and success is a conscious process, if you jump up you will come down but if you grow up, you will stay there!

How does one increase? There is only one way I know and the application of these principles has led to some increase in my life.

The bible says in Proverbs 3:9 (MSG) Honor God with everything you own; give Him the first and the best. Your barns will burst and your wine vats will brim over.

I want you to take your attention off giving and focus on the word "HONOR" what does it mean to honor someone? You give that person preferential treatment, you put them first.

So when you honor God with everything you own, it means that you ascribe the glory of your efforts to God! Whenever you buy something and as you are making payments you whisper "thank You Jesus for making this possible"

It also means that when you receive your salary or money from business, the first money you remove is your tithe AND your offering, sieve through the notes, make sure it's the cleanest notes and then keep them aside.

The bible says if you make this a habit, He says your barns which represents your bank account will burst with money and you will have businesses coming to you from everywhere.

Let me share a testimony with you; Sapphire Scents distributorship started with 15k, then 30k, then 50k, then 70k and now 100k yet people are joining us everyday.  Let me tell you why even if it goes up to a million Naira people will keep joining us. It is because the first 15k, 30k, 70k and 100k were given to honor God, we gave Him the first and the best and He released angels (Malaikas 😁😁😁) who do our marketing for us!

If you will honor God and give Him the first and the best, increase is certain! Try God and you will see your world change.

This Is Your Best Season

"Oh boy, this recession tough o, everything don increase, no money, no job, nawa for this change o"
Wilson looked at Jonah and smiled "really I no sabi wetin you de talk, I de hear am for news but this has been the best season of my life o, I just built my house and bought 2 cars"

Jonah couldn't believe his ears " for this period? Abeg wetin you de do abeg?"

Ladies and gentlemen if you are a child of God and you are complaining like the rest of the world at this time then I doubt if you are truly a kingdom citizen, the challenges are there because God wants to show off His people.

I saw an amazing scripture in Exodus 9:4 But the LORD will distinguish between Israel's livestock and the livestock of the Egyptians. No animals belonging to the Israelites will die.'"

My God! 💃💃💃🙌🙌 God will make a difference between the business of His children and those of unbelievers! God will make a difference between the economy of His own and those outside! He says you will not lose anything in this season even though the world is complaining!

This should be the BEST season of your life! This is the time people will come from far and near to look for you because God has given you solution. This is the time you will be the richest!

If God has promised this to you why are you not seeing it? You have abandoned God's presence, retrace your steps! If you are still giving God a wiper every morning, you are not serious!

These are the days to improve on prayer, I just switched my prayer life to 2 hours every morning, favor time is prayer time! Wake up! This is your best season yet!

What Winners Do

I was privileged to be one of 3 judges at a competition for barbers at the FCT organized by Philips Electronics yesterday, they had just launched a hair clipper for Nigerian men and they were promoting the product.

They were a total of 18 contestants and the winner would win. 250k and also contest with others all over Nigeria. The overall winner would be crowned the best barber in Nigeria.

It was a pretty intense competition but I learnt something about winners watching these people up close.

1. Confidence: every winner is very confident, they have no doubt about their abilities. If you don't have confidence, you can't go far.

2. Presentation: Winners don't present their products anyhow, you must develop the skill for presenting everyday things in an extraordinary way. If you sell yam at the market, let yours be clean and even sell in a nice tray. Some of the barbers were dressed in suit, you would never know they were barbers and they were very good.

3. Creativity: The winner for Abuja was a gentleman named Michael, his creativity was off the hook, his styles were very unique and he could cut hair with his right and left hand.

If you want to win in any area of your life, these 3 points will stand you out.

Speak What You Want To See

"You recession I bind you in Jesus name, I put on the whole armor of God and I resist you in Jesus name"

There is a lot of prayers going round these days because of the challenges the world is facing, I am not of this world so I don't see any effect of the recession 🙌.

One of the important things every believer should know is how to pray and how to talk.  The bible says "we should be imitators of God as dear children" Ephesians 5:1

How does God talk? God simply says what He wants to see! The bible says that in the beginning the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Did God bind the darkness? Nope! He said "let there be light!"

Lazarus had been dead and stinking for 3 days, did Jesus bind the spirit of death? Nope! He said "Lazarus come forth!"

The storm was troublesome and the waves were tossing the boat about so bad when Jesus was woken up He said to the storm "peace be still"

The attitude of faith is to speak what it believes and what it wants to see, faith does not focus on the problem, it focuses on the results! Ignore the situation, speak what you want to see! Joel 3:10b says "let the weak say I am strong!"

SPEAK what you want to SEE! That is your route out of the situation. So I throw the question to you; what do you want to see?

God Frustrates the Devices of the Crafty

I am stirred to share this testimony with anyone going through a conspiracy or if you have been lied against  at your  place of work

This time 2 years ago, I remember waking up from my friend's couch, I had just been transferred back to Abuja with only one week notice, no accommodation or transportation allowance with a 7 months pregnant wife.  They called it a "disciplinary transfer". What was my offense? I stood up for the truth and so the office mafia decided to deal with me.

I had my faults because I wasn't a very patient person. I had a very insecure supervisor, the 42 year old woman was an HND holder and I tried my best to make her comfortable but a chicken can never be comfortable in the presence of a lion. I was a threat because as far as she was concerned, I wanted her 250k monthly job and she had to protect it at all costs.

They had a strategy and it was to fill my staff file with queries without any response from me. So there were like 100 accusations in my file and less than 10 responses from me.

Almost everyday they would put something in my staff file either it was true or not. The big idea was to keep me from progressing in that organization and then sack me and make it impossible for me to ever work again.

They eventually presented my case at the board meeting. I remember one of my colleagues looking at me at the office that day,  his look said "once Tomi is back from Abuja you are a goner". I just smiled and shook my head at how foolish men can be. I had seen a scripture that said "my times are in your hands" Psalm 31:15 I knew they would fail, I had no doubt about it.

As expected they failed woefully and it was to make sure that they dealt with me that I was transferred back to Abuja. Thank God they conspired o 😁😁😁😁.

You see your enemies are working for God, don't be scared of what they are planning, as long as you are a child of God it will work for your good!

When I look back now and I remember that this time last year I was earning 130k per month, sometimes I roll on the floor and worship this mighty God who frustrates the plans of the crafty; so that what they work for never succeeds. Job 5:12

If you are going through a situation like this, be excited! Your enemies will not die, they will be alive and well and they will be seeing you rise and succeed. God will prepare a table before you in the presence of your  enemies, they are working for your good!

Don't Get Distracted

"There is something that makes me come into Your presence, my Helper" As the congregation sang and danced, Luis could not concentrate, his eyes were fixed on the back side of a couple of ladies singing and dancing to God in front of him. No matter how hard he tried, he just could not focus on anything else, they were not provocatively dressed, he was just distracted.

The devil has a very subtle but potent strategy for Christians, he couldn't keep you from coming to church so he makes sure that you don't get anything out of the time you spend in church. Distraction is a big one for Christians, how should this be dealt with?

There are certain things that will help you:
1. Pray: When you get to church, go on your knees and pray, bind the spirit of distraction and ask the Holy Spirit to help you focus and receive the blessing God has for you.

2. Sit with passionate Christians: I am convinced that the people you sit with in church affects what you get out of the service.  Sit with people who love the word of God. How do you know? Before the service even starts, you spend time sharing revelations and insights into the word of God. Don't sit with people who just want to gist. I love to sit on the front row you can't see anything happening at your back.

3. Close your eyes: the fastest way to get distracted is to keep your eyes open during praise and worship, close your eyes and mean the words of the song. What I do is to see myself in the throne room in heaven worshipping with innumerable angels. I always believe that when I kneel down, angels kneel with me and when I sing, they sing along.

The bible says that those who appear before God in Zion goes from strength to strength. Your strength in every area of life is connected to appearing in Gods presence and getting the blessing, don't let the devil distract you.

Happy Sunday.

Appreciate and Celebrate That Woman

"Wow that's a beautiful dress, it matches with your eyes and your hair" Tim moved closer to Tina and held her hands then he said " your husband is the most fortunate man in the world, I hope he appreciates it"

Tina's eyes glowed and she suddenly began to blush, it had been a while since any man appreciated her. All her husband ever told her was that she was fat and getting old. 

From that day on, she dressed better to work because she knew Tim would compliment her, the days she didn't see him around, she would find a way of going to his office just so she could see him. 

It wasn't long before they started hanging out, she tried to keep the boundaries but she knew that if she would ever cheat on her husband, Tim was a candidate. 

I am talking to the men this morning; when was the last time you told your wife you loved her? When was the last time you told her she is beautiful, when was the last time she dressed up and you said "My God, are you sure I am the husband of this gorgeous woman?" 

Lavish compliments on your wife, as a man you have to deal with many things but your wife is dealing with way more than you can imagine from children and taking care of the house, be kind to her.  Let your words be seasoned with grace. Nobody should appreciate your wife more than you. May God help us all in Jesus name.

A Psalm of Confidence in God

A Psalm of Confidence in God

Anytime I feel the sand under my feet

Anytime I  feel the sun’s heat

I know that God will be ever faithful and loving

And I know He will never leave me waiting

You can’t tell me the wind won’t blow

You can't tell me my hair won’t grow

Because it’s not in your hands and you have no idea

Therefore you can’t say anything about my life, the present does not matter

God swore by himself that He has blessed me

He came down to my level and swore by creation and trinity

That He would bless and multiply my effort

That He would cushion me on all sides with comfort

It doesn't  matter what the doctor or the landlord is saying

God’s word is what I believe, you can’t break my spirit; you will always see me smiling.

A Psalm of Consecration

A Psalm of Consecration

I have a yearning, I have a thirst, 
That when God says "who should I send?" My hands will be up first 

Do business through me Lord 
When people pray to you, let me be the one you call

Through me let people feel Your love
Let them feel You smiling from above

Make me an answer to prayers 
Through me, rule in men's affairs 

Touch the broken hearted with my hands 
Heal the sick and lose their bonds 

This is my heart's cry, it's my desire
Let it burn within me like fire

Psalms of Worship

Many people read the book of Psalms but have never bothered to ask what a Psalm means. A psalm is a sacred song or hymn used in worshipping God, you can write your own psalms. 🙌

For the next couple of days, I will be posting psalms that the Holy Spirit has inspired me to write.

I wrote this one five years ago and I was going through some difficult times. I pray it blesses you.

Through It All

Through lack and pain
Through struggles and hustles without gain
Through the moments I pray and I don’t get answers
Through the moments poverty eats deep like cancer
Through the moment the future looks bleak
Through the moments I cry and am so weak
Through the moment people wonder where my God is
Through the moment the enemy is writing his victorious thesis
Then, I will open my mouth and praise my God
I will praise HIM for breath; I will praise HIM for blood
I will praise HIM for sanity; I will praise HIM for sight
I will let the high praise of God be in my mouth, out of the lack, I will pay my tithe
For my Father will never leave me alone
HE will give me harvest for that which I have sown
So I praise my God in anticipation
Knowing that HE will exceed my expectation
The setback is like that of an arrow
It don’t matter where my mates are, they won’t be my mates tomorrow
The Trinity has settled it
So I let the high praise of God be in my mouth and I receive it.

As You Obey, Miracles Will Happen

Anyone who had leprosy in the days of Jesus had a major plague; lepers lived far away from everyone else, if they knocked on your door, you had to replace the door, if they entered your house that house had to be evacuated or thoroughly cleansed. They had to ring a bell if they were walking so that people could be aware of their presence and step aside. If they appeared in public unannounced, they were stoned to death.

Now imagine the lepers that came to Jesus for healing and Jesus instructed them to go and show themselves to the high priest, it was a suicide mission!  But AS THEY WENT, they were healed!

Ladies and gentlemen, God has called you to do some things that are scary and look suicidal and you did not bother to obey because you were thinking of how it will happen.

God is telling you to buy land, to give a million Naira, to stop taking loans at the bank but you are thinking of how you could ever own a piece of land when you don't even have an apartment, you are thinking of how to give away a million Naira when you don't have 10k to your name, you are thinking of how business will survive without the banks.

But this is what God is saying to you, as you set aside 5000 Naira for the land, He will send the remaining, as you put aside 10k, He will send the 990k, as you make up your mind to do business with what you have, He will make you self sufficient!

What has God told you? START! Don't look at what you have, start with the little and it will increase! God is waiting for you! Take that step this week and your results at the end of the year will shock you.

What You Are Going Through Is For A Reason

Everything you are going through is for a reason; every pain, every challenge, every opposition is for a reason. That reason is in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

God allows those troubles so that He can comfort you and then you also can comfort others.

If you check the history of  anyone with an outstanding healing ministry; Kenneth Hagin, Dr Benny Hinn and many more, you will realize that they had been sick before and God delivered them.

If you check the history of any man of God who is very wealthy, you will realize that they have been poor before. 

I have an hatred for homelessness and oppression because my wife and I was once forced to evacuate a house the company I was working for at that time gave us. I made up my mind I would never employ anyone without providing accommodation. 

Be strong! You are a deliverer, God chose you specifically to go through that challenge so that you can be a blessing to others who would go through the same in the future. 

If God has taken you out of poverty and put you in wealth, it's not for self aggrandizement, it's for you to be a blessing to others.  Never ever forget why God has blessed you and never doubt that you will come out of that challenge. You are a blessing.

Lessons About Offerings

There is a profound scripture in the bible and it is the story of the poor widow in Luke 21:3 who gave two small copper coins and Jesus said she had given more than everyone because she gave out of her lack.

This scripture taught me a number of things about offerings.

1. Jesus noticed the person who put in more than others: when you give to God, God measures what you have with what you are giving. Jesus specifically said in Luke 21:4
"All of these people have given what they could spare. But she, in her poverty, has given everything she had to live on."

King David understood this principle when he said in 2 Samuel 24:24 . "I won't offer the LORD my God burnt sacrifices that cost me nothing."

Stop giving God ten Naira and twenty Naira. The amount you spend on internet should not be less than your offering. Honor God! Your offering should be planned! Set it aside, budget for it.

2.  You give to God when you give to the church and the poor: the church represents God so when you want to give to God, give to the church. Jesus noticed the offerings AND the people who gave them. If you want to catch God's attention, be a serious giver. Every gentile who ever caught the attention in the bible was a giver. The centurion whom Jesus described as a man of great faith built a synagogue for the Jews. The first gentile to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit was also a major giver. It was said of him in Acts 10:31 Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your gifts to the poor have been noticed by God!

3. God notices when you honor Him with money: God knows your account balance and He sees what you are giving.  This is what I do for offerings, I give at the level I want God to bless me and the moment I start, money starts to come to me at that level. You can decide your financial level.

Giving is the way beloved, what you give you cannot lack. May God give us wisdom in Jesus name.  Happy Sunday.

Have You Been Kissing A Frog?

We all know the story of the princess and the frog: it is the story of a prince who was turned into a frog by a witch and only love's true kiss could make him human again.

Many ladies have been kissing frogs and wishing that it would some day turn into the man of their dreams, they have been kissing frogs and believing that some day, he would become Prince Charming. Newsflash!  Frogs DONT turn to princes! 

Many people who are divorced today saw the signs; he beat you when you were dating, he cheated on you with your best friend, he didn't give you a dime to even fix your hair but you decided to ignore all of those and began to think of what people would say so you consoled yourself with one word "he will change after marriage". My sister you have been kissing a frog and frogs don't become Prince Charming. Wake up and smell the coffee! 

Whatever issues you are dealing with right now will escalate after marriage. If he was sleeping with your friend before, now he will sleep with your maid, if he was slapping you before, get ready for a boxing match. 

People who love each other sincerely still have challenges in marriage how much more those who want to patch things up? 

What then should be done? If you see anything you don't like in a man leave him, don't go ahead with the relationship, you may have to deal with it for the rest of your life. 

Take a minute to think about your relationship, have you been kissing a frog?
