Testimony Thursday


The Holy Spirit inspired me to share a testimony every Thursday and then tomorrow we will conclude on why Christian men fail.

Six years ago I needed to get a job and after praying, the Holy Spirit instructed that I should get dressed as though I already had a job and take communion just like the children of Isreal had the Passover meal before they left Egypt. The location that came to mind was Silverbird Galleria, Abuja. So I did what the Holy Spirit said and went to Silverbird.

I met a lady in charge of marketing and after I had spoken to her, she asked me to approach companies for adverts on behalf of Silverbird but it wasn't an official job, at least it was a start. I began to visit offices and I was marketing to them, I got rejections but I also got some really good feedback.  Then the lady I talked to at Silverbird told me she had spoken to her boss and they didn't feel it was a good idea for me to continue, I was sad.

I went back to the place of prayer and prayed and fasted for 3 days. On the last day, my phone rang and the person said "hello am I talking to Adewale Aladejana? I confirmed I was the person and then she said "you have an interview at the TY Danjuma Foundation tomorrow". I didn't even know a place like that existed so I traced the office and there it was!

My mum had asked for my CV a while back so I copied my cousin's CV, I changed his name and put in mine. It wasn't even a properly prepared CV and it was the last CV I ever used.

The interview was for an internship job and the salary was 50k but it was a start. I was selected and I became an intern, nine months and eight days later I became a full staff and three years later I quit to start my own business.

Beloved, God is waiting for your prayers to order your steps because God needs your permission to work wonders in your life. It doesn't take time, it takes God! If you will take time off to talk to God and pray about that matter, He will order your steps.

The bible says in Proverbs 3:5 (NIV) 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.

Involve God in your job search and in that business you want to do, you will experience speed in Jesus name.

Happy new month!

Why Christian Men Fail ( Part 4)

Wrong Association and Being At The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time

The bible tells us in 2 Samuel 11:1-2 (NIV) 1In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.
2One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful..."

There was a time when kings were supposed to be at war but King David was at the balcony of his house and he saw a beautiful naked woman.  A naked woman has never failed to attract attention that's why videos and adverts are full of them. King David was at the wrong place at the wrong time. 
Places carry presence, heaven is a place and hell is a place. There are places where men are made, there are places where men are destroyed. If you are a proper Christian you can't hang out with your friends at the club, it's just a matter of time before you get into trouble. 
Wrong association destroys that's why the bible said in Psalm 1:1 (NIV) Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers. 

If you have ever been in the gatherings of your friends who are not Christians, they are either talking about girls or criticizing men of God because they know you are a Christian. I remember hanging out with some old friends a while back and these people were criticizing pastors and seed sowing. One of them even said the whole bible is not true and she was a Christian, I knew they would never see me at that gathering again. 
Man of God be careful where you go and who you talk to. May God help us all in Jesus name.

Why Christian Men Fail ( Part 3)

They Dishonor and Disregard Their Wives

I am sure everyone knows that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo is my father and in the world of today, he is one of the most respected men of God worldwide yet he takes time to advise and mentor me. Recently he told me " Wale respect your wife and listen to her that is the secret"

On your wedding day, you made some vows in the presence of God and in the presence of people. If you have ever been married or you have been a best man at someone's wedding, you will know that when those vows are being said there is a heavy presence that rests, it is not an ordinary moment, it is a very spiritual one.

Now this is what the bible says about those vows in Malachi 2:13-14 (NIV) 13Another thing you do: You flood the Lord’s altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer looks with favor on your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands. 14You ask, “Why?” It is because the Lordis the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant.

Those wedding vows are what is called imule (covenant) in Yoruba and a Yoruba proverb also says "Eni to ba dale, a bale lo" ( if you break the covenant, the covenant will kill you)

 In case you forgot what you said on your wedding day, let me remind you:

""I, ___, take thee, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I pledge thee my faith [or] pledge myself to you."

You promised to cherish and love that woman and you pledged your life to her according to God's ordinance till death separates you! Malachi just told us that God was there the day you said those vows and an angel wrote down everything you said. So when you pray God checks if that marriage covenant is in place before He answers your prayers.  You see I am convinced that God attends weddings because divine provision happens and Jesus first outing was also a wedding.

Listen to this carefully, after God, the next most important person in your life is your wife! Every billionaire from Bill Gates to the late Rockefeller to Baba Adeboye and Bishop Oyedepo knows this secret!

Bros, everything you are dealing with financially and all the troubles in your life can stop just like it started if you start fulfilling your vows. Honor that woman and respect her.

There are many men of God who died or whom we never heard of again the moment they started mistreating their wives. May God give us wisdom and may we not be victims of the covenant in Jesus name.

Why Christian Men Fail (Part 2)

Why Christian Men Fail (Part 2)

Yesterday we looked at part 1 of why Christian men fail and I said the first thing the devil attacks is your relationship with your pastor.

The second reason why Christian men fail is unconquered tendencies. These are secret cravings and pleasures that becomes a deadly sin and eventually ruins or almost ruins Christian men.

Let us look at look at some anointed men of God who had unconquered tendencies:

1. King David had a thing for other men's wives. King David was married to Saul's daughter Michal but Saul took her away from him and after that he married Abigail who was the former wife of Nabal, and when he became King of Israel, he asked for Michal his first wife who was already married to another man. 2 Samuel 3:14-15 tells us that Michal's husband was weeping behind her as she left for David's house. At that time, King David had at least four wives. Then King David set his eyes on Beersheba who was the wife of Uriah the Hittite and he killed her husband to marry her. These cravings almost destroyed him, God placed a curse on the house of David that said in 2 Samuel 12:10 "the sword shall never depart from your house"

King David had cravings for what belonged to other men and it almost destroyed him.

King Solomon loved strange and exotic women so much that he had 700 wives who were of royal birth  and 300 concubines and they turned his heart from God.

What are your unconquered tendencies? Lust, sex, anger, food, money? You must begin to conquer it in your heart, it is a monster that can destroy you. May God help us all in Jesus name.

Why Christian Men Fail ( Part 1)

Why Christian Men Fail ( Part 1)

The bible says in Isaiah 4:1 (NLT) In that day so few men will be left that seven women will fight for each man, saying, "Let us all marry you! We will provide our own food and clothing. Only let us take your name so we won't be mocked as old maids."

Believe it or not there is a deliberate attempt by the kingdom of hell to render the men useless and this is happening already, there is a strategic war against men either as husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles and as business men. The man was God's glorious creation and the devil is fighting tooth and nail for men never to realize their potential. This explains why there are so many useless men out there; men whom the only way they are men is because of the thing dangling between their legs.

I have been writing these devotionals everyday for the past 6 years and I have never ran a series but I am led to do that now and I will be taking you through reasons why Christian men fail.

One of my gifts is the ability to research. For a while I have been studying high flying Christians from the days of the bible till now who suddenly crashed and I discovered that all of them made the same mistakes.

Mistake 1: They stopped listening to their pastor or even fought with him.

When God wants to bless you, He will send you a man of God who sees what you are not seeing, he will speak words into your life and hold you up in the place of prayer. As long as you keep that relationship you will prosper, the moment you disrespect that man or feel you know better, you are on your way down. King Saul disrespected Prophet Samuel in the bible, in the world of today, we have people like Israel Houghton who left Lakewood Church because he wanted to divorce his wife (he is back in church now though) and Deittrick Haddon who disrespected Bishop TD Jakes.  These men have no regard for spiritual authority and this always marks the beginning of the end for them.

Man of God, as long as you keep that link with your man of God you will prosper! Don't grieve them, they have labored over you. The best gift you can give your man of God is your success, he wants to brag on you.

If you follow these things I am talking about you are one of the few the devil can't touch, you are SMART! May God help us all in Jesus name.

You Can't Handle Two Women

"Please o, I don't want wahala, you are a married man, I don't want to have anything to do with another woman's husband"  Maxwell held Cynthia's waist "it doesn't matter, we like each other a lot that is what is important" 

Cynthia hugged Maxwell and smiled to herself. This was the man she was supposed to marry but he chose another woman over her well she would share Maxwell with his wife till she met the man she would marry.

Maxwell would lie to his wife that he was working late but he spent most of his time at Cynthia's place, she would feed him and make sure they had sex almost everyday. Maxwell would get home exhausted and tired. His wife began to suspect that something was wrong, he had not touched her in a month and when she asked him, he said it was the pressure from work. 

Gradually Maxwell stopped coming home every night and it became a war for his wife to get money from him.  His phones were always locked and he would hide them when he wanted to sleep. So she decided to trace his movement and discovered Cynthia's residence. Maxwell's wife went with her friends and they beat Cynthia so bad that she ended at the hospital, she swore to retaliate by getting pregnant for Maxwell. 

Maxwell went for a medical checkup recently and he was diagnosed with high blood pressure. 

Men! The truth is you can't handle two women successfully, it will cost you a lot, focus on your wife, teach her to be everything you want her to be, you will live longer that way. One of the fastest ways to poverty is sleeping with any woman who is not your wife.  Proverbs 6:29 (NIv) So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.

May God give us wisdom and contentment in Jesus name.

Don't Destroy Favor

One day of favor is equal to a lifetime of labor. If you had to work for everything you had,  you must have lived a miserable life, favor is God serving you first when it won't go round, favor is receiving gifts you don't deserve. There are no successful men, there are only favored men. The difference between the Obioma tailor and a fashion designer is favor. Favor is important! You must go for it!

Yet it breaks my heart to see people lose favor all the time. Many people lose favor because of foolishness and ignorance. How do you attract favor:

1. When you meet someone you admire don't ask for money: I learnt this the hard way. I did some services for a top politician three years ago and then I asked that he buy me a car 🙆🙆🙆🙆 😂😂😂. From that time, the man believes I am money hungry. Don't be foolish, don't see successful people as your ATM card, offer your services and do it diligently. Be more concerned about the relationship than money.

2. Don't be a collector; are you like the earth that is never satisfied? You are like the Dead Sea always collecting but never giving anything out, you will stink! Make it an habit to give to people who give to you! As a matter of fact, give more than everyone in your circle.

3. Learn how to appreciate people who have been good to you: saying "thank you" to people who have shown you favor is good but that is not enough. Do something tangible to express your gratitude.

4. Don't let people who have shown you favor regret it. There are some people you have shown favor who have repaid you with evil. Those kind of people have no favor, God is the One who dispenses favor and if you don't take care of favor, you won't see more.

There are many more but I will stop here. Receive wisdom for favor in Jesus name.

Testimony Thursday

The Holy Spirit instructed me to share a testimony every Thursday. So when everyone does throwback Thursday, I do testimony Thursday, they are both #TBT 😁

Early this month, the Holy Spirit inspired me to start Sapphire Scents line of fragrances. For the past 19 months we would scout the Middle East for rare fragrances and then bring them to Nigeria. God gave me a nose to smell perfumes that can make money and we have made a little fortune from those perfumes but now God was telling me to move on. The Holy Spirit let me in on a secret; He said there would be people who would be selling exactly what we sell, they would visit our page, copy all our perfumes and order the same stuff from the Middle East even though we were the ones that introduced these perfumes to the Nigerian market.

When I told my distributors many of them pleaded with me but I knew what the Holy Spirit had told me. It created a serious frenzy because many distributors even had pending orders and they needed to get perfumes to their clients but I refused to budge.

Yesterday afternoon I was going through Instagram when I saw a page using our pictures and displaying our kind of perfumes. Initially I thought the person must be our distributor but on closer inspection the person was not! They were using all our pictures many of which our distributors took with their phones, I took some of those pictures too.

I referred our distributors to the page and asked them not to make a scene, I wanted them to learn a lesson, always listen to the Holy Spirit, He will reveal secrets to you. If you are a businessman and your competition can do what you do then you can't last! Thank God we moved on! We would have lost millions of Naira this Christmas.

With Sapphire Attar we have no competition because nobody knows what we mixed and when these perfumes land, I know the perfume industry will never be the same, I was anointed for this, I was born to do this!

Ladies and gentlemen, listen to the Holy Spirit, cherish that relationship, you can't do much without Him.

Your Life is A Preparation

David was a shepherd who later became a king, Moses was so obsessed with fighting oppression that he killed a man, he later delivered 2 million Jews, Joseph was a dreamer from a very young age and he later interpreted pharaoh's dream and became prime minister.

Your life is a preparation for one glorious moment; everything you have been through, all the challenges you experienced, all the people that hated you and made life miserable for you were all part of the script for the glorious thing God will do in your life.

I loved perfumes but I never knew I would one day own a perfume company and my own brand of perfumes! 🙆🙆🙆 What is that thing that you love doing? Keep at it, keep grinding, purpose and destiny is hidden in it.

Another phenomenal scripture is in 1 Chronicles 14:2 David realized that the LORD had confirmed him as king over Israel and had greatly blessed his kingdom for the sake of his people Israel.

All the challenges that David went through in his life was because God was preparing to make him king over Israel!

Don't despise those challenges they are helping you to prepare for that glorious future. Everyday brings you closer that is why it's so important to SURVIVE TODAY! Tell death, depression and all those issues NOT TODAY AND NOT TOMORROW either because there is a shining destiny after this challenge, there is a shining light at the end of the tunnel! Stay alive my brother, stay alive my sister and you will reach that destiny in Jesus name.

Your Best Days Are In Your Future

To me one of the most amazing and unforgettable scriptures that makes my blood hot is Genesis 50:26  "Joseph died at the age of 110 years"

My God! Joseph became prime minister of Egypt at 30 and he reigned for 80 YEARS! Jesu! 🙆🙆🙆

This same man was in prison for at least 5 years but he spent the next 80 years of his life in splendor, royalty, abundance and comfort. 

My brother and my sister forget about the challenges of now! Your future is bright! Your best days are ahead of you, don't kill yourself before your time, take it easy, love God and do what the bible says and you will reign forever.  Never ever forget that your future self is not like your present self. Those challenges shall pass and the real you will emerge.

You Cannot Afford To be Neutral

Lester woke up with two naked women sleeping on his chest, he picked up a half smoked marijuana and lit it, he was living the life; at 26 he had everything money could buy. His parents used to tell him that he needed God to be successful but they were wrong, he didn't need anybody, all he needed was his brain and he was very smart, he graduated magna cum laude at Harvard, he was the most sought after project manager in Africa and Europe.

Lester had a $10 million presentation at 10am so he got dressed, kissed his two girlfriends, got into his SLK MacLauren with oxblood interiors and sped away. He got to the office of Pablo and Ricci right on time, he was never late.

At 10 sharp, he set up his projector and said "good morning everyone" and his mind blacked out, he couldn't remember what he had to say. He apologized and promised to come back later. The moment he left their office, everything came back so he drove back but when he stood in front of them, he blanked out again. Lester began to experience these black outs for a year and he lost everything that he had.

It was then that Lester ran to God and gave his life to Jesus Christ and the blackouts stopped immediately.

Ladies and gentlemen if you are a highflying businessman and you don't pray or do juju or belong to any cult yet your business is doing well and thriving, give it some time you can't last!

The business world is not for neutral people! Business controls money and power and you need these two in the world to dominate. If Satan had the nerve to tell Jesus to bow down and worship him and he would handover the riches and glory of this world to him why then do you think you can live anyhow and be successful for long.

My brother, my sister you cannot be neutral! Choose Jesus! That is the only name that has influence in heaven, on earth and under the earth! Every other name will fail! Align your business with Jesus and you will see what will begin to happen.

Men Ought To Pray

Lucifer sat in hell when the two monitoring spirits he assigned to Mr Kole's family appeared and they said "that man is a Christian but we have seen a loophole in his family, they don't pray together, there is no family altar in their house, there are no angels guarding their home"

Lucifer laughed "we will introduce the spirit of strife and insecurity through his wife, we will begin to whisper thoughts that her husband is cheating and then we will arrange one of our girls to set him up, get to work! I hate Christian marriages, they must scatter, their children must hate God!"

Kole woke up and brushed his teeth and then he kissed his wife Linda, he  said a five minute prayer and left for work. Long prayers were for church, the one hour prayer done in that church would last him for a week, he needed to focus on other things.

At 9pm Kole was still not back from work Linda called her husband but he didn't pick up, that was unusual. Meanwhile Kole was on his way home when he saw a lady with a flat tyre,  her name was Rachel, he stopped to help her and when he was done changing her tyres, she hugged him and planted a kiss on his cheeks and his shirt but he didn't know that there was a lipstick stain on his cheek and shirt.

He got home and Linda took one look at him and she just went crazy, she began to call him all sorts of names but he didn't understand why until she showed him the lipstick stain, he tried to explain but she didn't believe him and things grew worse everyday, Kole began to see more of Rachel because there was no peace at home and in two years, their marriage was over.

I am talking to men this morning; it's important  to make money but one of the most important roles of a man is to pastor his home. NEVER EVER EVER start or end a day without praying together and reading your bible, this is SO IMPORTANT and only very few Christian homes do this. I learnt a long time ago that PRAYER IS THE SEED FOR PEACE! Families that pray together, stay together!

Every 6:30 am in the morning and 9pm at night we are praying, praising and reading the bible at my house. Try it and see how peaceful and joyful your home will be. Receive wisdom in Jesus name.

Testimony Time!

I am stirred to share this testimony with someone and I believe it will bless you.

After we moved into our apartment there was still a lot that needed to be done in terms of furnishing the house. We had made a bed and a sitting room set, we had 2 ACs, 2 TVs, a fridge, a gas cooker and 2 sound systems that was all. The apartment was a 3 bedroom we needed a dining set, bedroom furniture, mirrors,  a generator, TVs and ACs in every room, we needed wardrobes, we needed to repaint the walls and just make the place beautiful.

Ladies and gentlemen if it took God to get you that car, job, house it will take God for you to maintain it! I wrote down everything I needed to buy and when I did the calculation it was quite some money but I have learnt how to make things multiply. I would wake up at 4am and go to the apartment, we had not moved in at the time and I would connect the music player, drop the list of all we wanted to buy and just praise God for two hours and then I would go into every room and declare "supernatural supply"

By the grace of God today, we have everything on that list now, I think I have the most beautiful apartment in our block of flats yet only last year we were squatting and we had nothing but our clothes in Ghana must go bags.

Beloved you can praise God into your next level. When you have praises and worship songs in your mouth, your testimony is certain!

"Mr Emeka Igwe you are sentenced to death by hanging for murdering your wife Mrs Joy Igwe in cold blood"

The crowd in the court erupted, Emeka just stood there motionless as a statue. His mind did a flashback and he remembered everything  just like yesterday. He had been at the oil rig for 2 weeks and he was given the opportunity to go home for 3 days, he didn't call his wife because he wanted to surprise her. 

As he entered their house, the smell of Oud and roses filled the air and he began to suspect that his wife must have known that he was coming, he heard her giggle and moan, he was sure someone had let her in on the surprise but what he saw when he entered the bedroom shocked him, his wife was naked on the bed with a man under her.  She froze as she saw him and began to cry. 

Emeka ran into his study and brought out his gun, he could hear rapid footsteps like someone was running away, he wouldn't let that bastard escape, he could see the back of the man and then he took aim and just as he did, his wife stood in front of the gun with her hands raised as though to shield the man and the bullet ripped into her and came out on the other side, she died on the spot. 

Now he was going to die for killing his wife. Emeka was placed on death row and finally the day came. The noose was put on his neck and his sentence was being read when a call came in to say that Emeka had been pardoned. It was at that point he started crying, there was no doubt that God was giving him a fresh start. 

When Moses said to God "show me your glory" God showed Moses and this is how God was described in Exodus 34:6  6And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, MERCIFUL  and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7Keeping MERCY for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation

God is a merciful God! What is mercy? It is simply God refusing to see your wrongs. We all need mercy in life. How do you attract mercy? There is only one way, show mercy to people! God KEEPS mercy for people but if you want mercy to be kept for you, you have to be merciful! 

Forget that loan, forgive that person, be good to that person that hates you. When you do this, you have stored mercy for yourself. I pray for that you will not lack mercy in your life in Jesus name.

Your Faith Will Rise in Crisis

Prophet Taiwo was at the airport awaiting to board a plane on his way to Benin for a crusade, he was a popular face on TV and radio and he was greatly respected. As he made his way to the aircraft people bowed and greeted him, he was used to the honor that came with his office as a prophet. 

The plane sailed smoothly through the air for the first fifteen minutes and then the turbulence started, the pilot's voice burst through the speakers and he said "ladies and gentlemen we are flying at 80,000 feet above sea level and there is a thunderstorm, we are trying to avoid it but if we cannot please be prepared  for the worst and pray for God's intervention"

Everyone started praying and screaming, Prophet Taiwo was quiet, he had been through worse, it would pass but then the plane started spinning in circles and everyone was screaming, Prophet Taiwo began to shout Jesus and suddenly the plane began to nose dive. Prophet Taiwo lost his cool and began to say "Sango gba mi, eyin to ni afefe e gbe mi (Sango god of Thunder, save me, those who own the air carry me) he was so lost in his incantations that he did not notice when the plane stabilized, he was the only person still chanting incantations to Sango the god of Thunder. 

It became clear to everyone that Prophet Taiwo was a fake prophet, he was not truly a man of God. 

Proverbs 24:10 MSG says if you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn't much to you in the first place. 

You don't know if you truly believe in God until you are faced with serious challenges, it is at that moment that the real you emerges. Would you began to call on Sango like Prophet Taiwo or you will stay with Jesus? Take a minute to talk to yourself and tell yourself the truth; do you really believe in Jesus or you are just fooling yourself? 

Who you believe in determines if you will come out as a winner or a loser. Those who truly believe in Jesus never lose a battle! With Jesus, victory is guaranteed! I like to tell people who want to fight me that I have a 100% success rate in battle, you cannot win me because Jesus will always fight for me! 

Resist the temptation to run all over the place, focus on Jesus, that is where your salvation and deliverance will come from.

Tithe from Every Transaction

"Sir the accounts will never balance if we keep removing ten percent from every transaction" 

Michael looked at his accountant and smiled and then he said "you will not have a job soon if we stop removing that ten percent" 

Michael had come a long way in such a short time, his business was just five years old but they were listed as one of the Fortune 500 companies and he was the youngest on the Forbes list. 

Michael had a practice that all his  accountants could never understand, he tithed from every transaction and  transferred it to his church. The accountants felt it was not smart yet business got better every year.

When I hear business men talk about feasibility studies and consumer behavior and how a particular amount of money will come back if they invest xyz amount I just laugh because in the world of business, NOTHING IS CERTAIN! But when I see a business that tithes from every transaction, they have my attention. YOUR TITHE AND SEEDS ARE THE ONLY CERTAIN INVESTMENTS ON EARTH! 

Sapphire Scents tithes from every kobo, we don't spend money without first removing our tithe because we know what makes business work. 

Money is the god of this world, many people have learnt how to pray and fast but when it comes to money matters, they don't believe that part of the bible.  If you create the habit of worshipping God with your first and best when it comes to money, you will NEVER lack it! 

God did not ask us to give Him money, He asked us to HONOR Him! 

Proverbs 3:9 (MSG) says "Honor God with everything you own, give him the first and the best, your barns (bank account) will burst and your wine vats will brim over! 

In those days they used barns for storage, today a barn will be your bank account. God says when you honor Him, increase is guaranteed! Begin to practice this covenant in your business and see what will happen. This is not common sense, it is kingdom sense.

The Fake Showed Up Because of The Real

"Baby let's forget about the past and start again, you are the love of my life it just took me a long time to realize it, you can't marry any other man apart from me, I want to spend the rest of my life with you"

Louisa dated Wilson five years ago, he was everything she wanted in a man but he didn't treat her right, he cheated on her and eventually left her for another woman. She would cry till her pillow was soaked, she would send messages  and call him but he never replied or picked her calls.

Three months later she met Brian and he swept her off her feet. He was the most romantic and the most responsible man she ever met, he was definitely husband material.

Louisa was at the shopping mall when she ran into Wilson, the bags she was holding fell from her hands and she just stared at him, the noise  of the bags made him turn and when he saw her, he smiled and spoke in that sexy voice that always held her spellbound, all the memories of the good times they spent together rushed back, she composed herself and whispered a faint "hi". Wilson hugged her and then he got her number and he promised to stay in touch. He had been calling her everyday since then.

Louisa is at crossroads, Wilson claims he has repented and he has been so sweet and Brian has been the perfect man any woman could pray for in the last five years. What should Louisa do?

Ladies! When the fake shows up its because the real is close by. Don't settle for an ex who treated you bad because he is apologizing. The same issues will come up again.  There are good men and you don't deserve second hand! The only reason he is trying to get you back is because he is trying to see if he can still fool you. Stay with the man who has been there for you.  Give your ex some time, he will fade out, he is not here for long, he came to test you.

The bible says in James 1:17 (NIV)

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

The right man will be 1. Good 2. He will be perfect for you.

Illicit Sex Will Kill You

Nelson sat at the first class cabin of the airplane and whispered "thank You Jesus" he was exhausted and couldn't wait to get back to his family, he dozed off for about 30 mins and then he woke up to have some refreshments. He was about to pick a magazine when he saw the most beautiful skin he had ever seen on a human, he was staring at the thighs of the lady sitting next to him and he just totally forgot himself.

 "It's ok to stare", she said with a smile. Nelson was very embarrassed and he began to apologize profusely. She was amused and she said "aww you are such a good man, I don't meet many men like you, I can show you more" and then she pulled her skirt up a little bit more.

Nelson began to sweat, he had never met any woman this beautiful and inviting in his entire life, all the alarms in his head went off. Before he knew what was happening, he found himself rubbing her thighs. By the time the plane landed, they found the nearest available hotel room and they did not stop till they had a good fill of each other.  It was then that Nelson remembered that he didn't even know her name.

Her name was Lucinda and she was a business executive. From that moment on, they began a full fledged affair, Nelson for once in his life felt alive although he knew what he was doing was wrong and there would be repercussions, he just didn't care.

Few months later, Lucinda got pregnant and Nelson's wife got to know and she packed her bags. It was as though all his success left with her because in just 2 months after she left, he lost everything he had. Lucinda didn't stay as well, she moved on with her baby and he never heard from her again.

I am talking to men this morning. The devil will not show up with 2 horns and a tail, he will show up as your biggest fantasy.  The devil catches men in 2 ways; money and women. If God helps you to resist temptation in these 2 areas, you are no longer a man you have become a god!

Adultery and fornication is the number one killer of men. Whenever you see a babe that is all hot and sexy for you and she's ready to do whatever you say including sending you nudes just remember Proverbs 7:26 (NLT) she has been the ruin of many; many men have been her victims.

Don't see her, see the end because it is bitter and full of pain. May God help us all in Jesus name.

A Word For Someone

This word is for someone and you have issues with paying your house rent, you have prayed and you are under intense pressure but God asked me to tell you that He has heard you and your answer is in Isaiah 50:7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.

God said He will help you and on this matter you and your family will not be disgraced and be put to shame.

He said you should take this scripture everyday and dance, rejoice in the Lord who is your Helper and your Source. Make sure you share your testimony.

Are You Really Helping?

When God created the heavens and the earth and after He created man, I imagine that God would have stepped back a bit and thought to Himself "hmmmm, there is something that is not complete about everything I created and then He said "let us create a helper and a companion for man" and the woman was created.

God said He would create a help meet or helper for man, what does a help meet or an helper mean literarily?

Rebekah typifies the exact picture of the word "helper". Abraham wanted to marry a wife for Isaac and he told his chief servant Eliezer to go back to his family and pick a wife for Isaac.

When he got to the city of Nahor where Abraham's family stayed, he prayed that the right woman should be the one who will give him water and also fetch water for his camels.

Eliezer went with an impressive entourage, he went with 10 camels (in the world of today, 10 Toyota Prado Jeeps, I can imagine that they were all black with tinted glass 😁) all loaded with gold, money and precious gifts.

Rebekah showed up, fetched water for the servant and also the camels and everyone was refreshed.

I am convinced that the role of a wife is not to help you pay the rent or the school fees but to refresh the atmosphere. After a long day at work, you need a conducive atmosphere, you need a nest without thorns, you need a place where you can be yourself.

The right woman gives you peace of mind and her passion is to ensure that you don't get distracted so you can focus on the things God has called you to do. The right woman is concerned about your spiritual, physical and mental well being, she refreshes.

So I pose this question to all wives and wives to be, dear wifey, are you really an helper?

You Can Prosper by Association

"Sir, I don't want anything from you, I just want to serve you and follow you everywhere you go" Richard looked at the young man who introduced himself as Ladi and was amused, he had never heard anyone say that kind of thing before but he saw that his intentions were genuine so he gave him an apartment in his boys quarters.

As Richard prospered, Ladi also prospered, the more he served faithfully, the more he prospered. In 3 months, Ladi had to move out of the boys quarters to his own apartment and in a year, he had built his own house.

Ladi then decided to get married; his wife didn't like how he was always at the beck and call of Richard so she manipulated him and told him to break away and start his own business. Ladi followed his wife's advise, Richard felt it was not right to release him yet but Ladi left arrogantly.

In a few months, Ladi's new business started recording serious losses, everything that could go wrong happened. Ladi got back to his senses and went to apologize to Richard and then his life stabilized again.

Beloved there is such a thing as prosperity by association. The bible tells us about Abraham and Lot in Genesis 13:5 (NLT) Lot, who was traveling with Abram, had also become very wealthy with flocks of sheep and goats, herds of cattle, and many tents.

The bible tells us that when Lot left Abraham, trouble began; Abraham was the one who always had to save Lot from trouble all his life.

The covenant promises that anyone associated with you will be blessed! Those who serve you become blessed by God, your business associates become blessed as well, it also has another side; those who curse you and make life difficult for you also become cursed by God!

It is wisdom to associate with blessed men, that's why it's important to serve in church, the blessing on the life of whoever you serve flows to you as well.

If you must leave a man who has been blessing you, never leave with anger or in a way that he's not glad to release you, blessings can be transferred, make sure he prays for you. A word of heart felt prayer from a boss to a servant can transfer the anointing!

Look around you, who do you admire the most? Whose life inspires you? Go and serve that man and watch the grace on his life flow to you.

God Blesses BECAUSE!!!

Do you know that everyday decisions have spiritual implications? God blesses people BECAUSE of decisions they made and curses also come on people because of decisions they make.

God said to Abraham in Genesis 22:16 (NIV) BECAUSE  you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies.

God told Solomon in 1 Kings 3:11-12 (NLT) So God replied, “BECAUSE you have asked for wisdom in governing my people with justice and have not asked for a long life or wealth or the death of your enemies— 12I will give you what you asked for! I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have! 13And I will also give you what you did not ask for—riches and fame! No other king in all the world will be compared to you for the rest of your life!

All these people were blessed BECAUSE of something they did in the physical. God doesn't just bless,He blesses BECAUSE!

You may ask what can I do for God to bless me? Psalm 91:14 (NIV) says BECAUSE he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

Set your heart upon Jesus and love Him with all your heart, body and soul. The first proof of love is spending quality time together. Begin to spend time in prayer, singing worship songs and reading the bible. These are habits of people who love God and you will see your life transform.

Do You Have Social Manners

I was in traffic yesterday when I saw this really pretty lady sitting at the passenger side of a cab next to me . Her skin was beautiful and  glistening under the sun, she wore a gold chain that sparkled as her skin glowed, she had a very attractive presence. As I appreciated God's creative ability, she suddenly stuck her head out of the cab and released a professional spit (ewwww), she spat on the road not minding that cars were everywhere and it could have fallen on a car.

My fascination wore off immediately; this was a very beautiful woman without finesse or class and I thought to myself that if I was dating that kind of woman I could leave her for that particular reason. These little things are a big deal!

Does your mouth make noise when you eat? Do you spit anyhow and everywhere? Do you fight at weddings when you don't get food? Do you have body or mouth odor?

Let's pay attention to these little things they matter a lot.  Happy Sunday.

The Right Woman Brings Favor

When Kore started dating Bella everything went wrong, he lost his job, lost his car and his life just went upside down till they broke up. Then he met Bola and things suddenly switched, money came to him so fast and so large that in few years he owned many businesses and estates. 

If you don't know this by now you are a naive man.  The presence of a wrong woman in your life can destroy you.  The bible says in Proverbs 18:22 (NIV) He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.

If you were to read this scripture the other way it would say "he who finds a woman who is not his wife finds something that is not good for him and will receive no favor for the Lord"

One day of favor is equal to a lifetime of labor, the favor dimension will not let you struggle and you need that in your life as a man. One of the ways I knew that I had met my wife was that 2 weeks after we started dating, I bought my first Mercedes. 

If you have noticed that favor dimension then you need to protect and respect that woman. With wealth and success will come all sorts of people and even women who are suddenly attracted to you but be smart, don't mess with God and your life by bringing in strange women, you can lose everything that way. May God help men in Jesus name.

Love Your Enemies

One of the most contested scriptures in the bible is in Matthew 5:44 love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

There are churches that believe enemies should die but trust me one of the best things that can ever happen to you is to have enemies.

Who is an enemy? An enemy is anyone who is jealous of your favor and wants to diminish your credibility.

One of the ways you know you are doing well is the emergence of enemies, they will begin to show up from different corners but when an enemy shows up get excited because your next level has arrived!

Your enemies will reward you more than your friends because they will reveal your weakness and you will have no choice than to be stronger  and better. Imagine that you are a very fat person; your friends won't call you fat because they know it will hurt but your enemy wants to hurt you so she can decide to put up your picture on social media and say "I know the fattest woman in the world". That will hurt but from there, you will begin to exercise and discipline yourself because you won't want that kind of thing to hurt you again.

 In essence, enemies push us to our next level and bring out the best in us.

The best way to answer enemies is to have better results, that's why the bible says you should pray for them, pray that they won't die or be sick but they will constantly see you go higher. This is why Psalm 23 says He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

Take a minute to thank God for enemies, they are the ones who make our lives better and who let us know where we need to make changes.

Have You Met Jesus Today?

The bible tells us in John 1:1-2 that in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us!

What Apostle John was trying to tell us in simple language is that Jesus is the Word of God! Everything the bible was trying to tell us from Genesis to Revelation was about Jesus!

So anytime you pick that bible and you read, you just met with Jesus! The quality of the people you meet with determines the influence that is on your life.  The bible says in Acts 4:13 (ESV) when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.

Peter and John were fishermen, they were illiterates, in the world of today they could not be seen as accomplished men, they didn't even have a school certificate yet they spoke eloquently and boldly as though they were used to speaking in parliament and seats of government.

The leaders of Israel took one look at them and realized that the difference in their lives was because they had been with Jesus, mind you Jesus too did not go to school, He was a carpenter as a man but he was the Creator of the world. Jesus was the one who breathed life into Adam and brought to him all the animals and he named them all!

Adam too did not go to school! Did you know that man was created intelligent? By default man knew physics and chemistry and biology but the fall of man through sin took that glory away.

How do you go back to that level of intelligence? The bible tells us in Job 32:8  (NLT) that there is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them makes them intelligent!

Let Jesus breathe into you! Spend time with Jesus! How do you spend time with Jesus? Spend time with the Word! The more of Jesus you know, the more anointed you will become.

My question to you is have you spent time with Jesus today?
