What Do You Do In Trouble?

Ecclesiastes 10:15 (NIV) says "The toil of fools wearies them; they do not know the way to town."

What do you do when things are not working? What do you do when things that used to be easy becomes difficult? What do you do when you are about to be put to shame? 

Do you start running around and calling people? Newsflash! Most people don't really want to help you, the moment you drop your phone or leave their presence, they call another person to discuss your matter. 

Man is not the first person to call in trouble, don't even panic. Programme your mouth in such a way that the first thing that comes out of your mouth in any situation is "Thank You Jesus". 

Look for a quiet place and just sing praises to God, switch off your phones and just sing worship songs, forget everything and just praise God. An hour in God's presence is more profitable than 24 hours in the presence of the most powerful man. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and you will be shocked at the level of joy and peace you will enjoy.  After that declare what you want to happen in that situation. If it's a money matter declare the amount and say "five million Naira comes to me now! I release angels to bring this money to me now in Jesus name" trust me things will happen. 

I have a number of worship leaders who know God's phone number. 
These are my top 7
1. Terry Macalmon
2. Chris Morgan
3. Frank Edwards
4. Ron Kenoly ( you need that Lift Him Up album around you) 
5. Tope Alabi
6. Paul Wilbur
7. Jesus Culture 

There is nothing I am believing God for that I don't receive when I worship with music from these worship leaders. 

As you begin to praise and worship something will happen right at that moment and when it does, share your testimony and never forget that God has given you a key to deal with any difficult situation.

Don't Worry About Tomorrow

Many times our biggest fears are in tomorrow. You are anxious about next month and next week and tomorrow but this is what the bible says in Matthew 6:34 (NASB)

"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Don't worry! Don't worry! Don't worry! You were not dropped on the earth like a stranger, God will take care of you!

The response to worry is prayer and quoting scriptures. You must have some scriptures on auto replay in your head. One of my favorite is Isaiah 50:7 "for God has helped me, I will not be dismayed, I will not be confounded, I have set my face like a flint, I will not be put to shame."

Whenever there are situations I can't handle I just meditate on this scripture and I pray with it next thing I know is that peace floods my heart and answer to prayers come.

If you were to look down from an airplane you would understand how God sees things. From above everything is small, that challenge is nothing to God. Take a minute to say "Jesus take the wheel" and watch Him turn things around for you.

God Will Deliver You

"Good day sir, your rent is due and we are expecting payment this week". As Fred dropped the phone another call came in "Happy new year sir, please be reminded that you are to make payments for your children's school fees without which they will not be allowed to resume in school".  He was still thinking of how to sort out the bills when a text message came in from his office. One of their major foreign  partners had cancelled their contract because of the exchange rate.

Fred felt like screaming but he checked himself and began to praise God and thank Him for keeping his life till today. As he praised, he felt a peace rest on him and a scripture came to him; 
Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.

Wow! God promised to deliver him from ALL his troubles, not some of them! He immediately wrote a list of his urgent needs and presented them to God and then he gave thanks for them everyday.  Before that week ran out, Fred paid all the bills.

Beloved, there are so many troubles in the beginning of the year but learn to rest in the Word, God will deliver you! You will not and cannot  deliver yourself, it won't be a partial deliverance, it will be from ALL your troubles.

A righteous person is someone who trusts in and believes in Jesus and the finished work of the cross.
After you thank God, go to sleep, stop overthinking and over analyzing. You are not a bastard, God is your Father and He will take care of you! You are delivered from all your troubles in Jesus name.

God Is In The Success Equation

If She Stayed With You, Honor Her

I grew up in a beautiful 6 bedroom on three floors, my father was the most stylish man I knew, he was British trained and of course a British culture, I got my love of clothes, books, perfumes and Mercedes from him.  He loved flowers, we had beautiful gardens in all our houses, he loved Jazz, country music and blues. He was a successful businessman and later went into politics, he was a Federal Commissioner at the Revenue Mobilization  till he died in 2010. My father was a grand man, he was larger than life, if you needed anything he would tell you to go and pray and after that he would give you whatever you wanted.

That was what the picture of a father and a husband looked like to me. I wasn't one of the men that believed a woman should suffer with her husband, I believed a man should make his own money and leave his wife's money alone.

I said all of this to explain why I appreciate my wife so much. I wasn't one of the men that expected a woman to stay with you when you are starting up, to sleep on the mattress on the floor with you and enter cabs with you, I didn't plan to do that with any woman. To me it's unfair to let a woman go through all of that but my wife and I went through it and not once did I lose respect in her eyes because I didn't have a car or an apartment yet. Even with our mattress on the floor she called me "my king"

Men if you find a woman who stood by you when you had nothing do yourself a favor, honor her, give her the best, take her seriously, make her happy. It's easy for women to tell you how well you dress and how good you look right now but one woman loved you when you had nothing. That is the woman to stay with and be loyal to for the rest of your life!

Today whatever my wife wants she gets, she doesn't have a budget 😁, her desires will never be unanswered because she paid her dues.

Men don't expect a woman to stay with you when you have nothing because many women have done it and when money came the man changed but if you find one that stays, make sure you are eternally grateful to her, it is a debt you must pay for the rest of your life.

My Case Is Different

One of the power scriptures for every Christian should be Psalm 91:7 and it says " A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you."

If you are a child of God you must believe your case will be different, it doesn't matter if all your friends lose their jobs and your married neighbors are fighting everyday, it doesn't matter if people are screaming about the recession, always believe and say to yourself "my case is different"

Take a minute to meditate on this psalm, this was someone who saw death, disease and destruction everywhere he looked, he saw thousands dead at his side and when he looked to the other side, ten thousand were dead YET he believed and said to himself, "my case is different"

There was a reason David was confident and it is in Psalm 91:9 "because I have made the LORD who is my refuge and even the Most High my dwelling place.

When you have the habit of constantly coming to the presence of God, your case will be different. When you play worship music and pray in the Spirit, when you meditate on the Word and keep your thoughts clean, when you  lift your hands to say "thank You Jesus" you are dwelling in the presence of God and your case will be different in Jesus name.

Testimony Thursday


I was posted to Benin in 2012 and we were setting up an office. There were just two of us at the time so we took on multiple roles, one of my roles then was to drive the official car.  I was driving back to the office but I also wanted to pick a call before I knew it, I had bashed a car!

My God! It was a brand new official car and there was also the other person's car, they were threatening to seize the car if I didn't give them money immediately to fix their own car. I didn't know what to do, I got into the car and asked them to follow me and all the while I was speaking in tongues desperately.

For some reason I drove into Hexagon at GRA and as I was still trying to beg them, the Secretary to the Oba of Benin came out and asked what was going on, I explained to him. He told them, "take my card and go, he will fix your car on Monday and if he doesn't fix it, come and meet me, I will pay". Wow! I was shocked, I couldn't thank him enough.

The first part had been dealt with, now I had to deal with my witch boss, even when I didn't bash a car, she was a demon, imagine what she would do. I just kept speaking in tongues and got to the office. I told her everything and she said they would use my salary to fix the car. I knew she would do something like that but then my HR called from Abuja and told her that the office will fix the car and she should leave my salary alone πŸ˜³πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ. I was so happy and grateful to God!

Whatever it is you are going through rather than shouting and making calls, speak in tongues and angelic assistance will arrive, right on time. Try it and you will share your testimony in Jesus name.

Why Should You Trust God?

If I were to ask you why you should trust God would you have an answer?  You see it's important to know the difference between God and man. Just like they ask you in interview "why should we employ you?" You ought to ask yourself "why should I trust God?"

Dr Mike Murdock says "wisdom is the recognition of difference". People tell you never to put your eggs in one basket but if the basket is in God's hands, they are safe! 

What is God's difference? It is in Numbers 23:19 and it says:

God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Ladies and gentlemen whenever you hold on to God's word you cannot be disappointed! God loved us so much that He gave us the bible, a bible is a document containing God's words. Whenever you hold on to any of those words you can't fail! 

God is not a liar! If He promised you healing you are healed! If He promised you prosperity you are rich! Someone may ask "I believe the bible but I am not seeing results" there are two things; it's either you don't believe enough to take action or the time is not right! 

God's word NEVER fails. If it did, someone like me would be in trouble, I have tasted and seen that God is not a man, He never lies, if He speaks He will bring it to pass. 

What are you going through? Get the word of God  and hold on to it and you will see things change in Jesus name.

Imagine If God Didn't Show Up!

Have you ever been in trouble? Have you ever been at that place where all that could go wrong went wrong? Have you ever been at that place where everyone looked at you like "how is he going to do it?" Then suddenly God showed up and made everything beautiful! The people that wanted to say "sorry" now said "congratulations", the people you were supposed to ask for money are now the ones asking you for money!

You looked at the time and it was quarter to shame but just a second before you were disgraced God showed up! This morning my heart is just so filled with gratitude for all the amazing things God has done for me!

It's so easy to forget that's why I want you to take a minute this morning to remind God of all the awesome things He has done, mention them one by one and just give Him praise, take it a step further by writing them down and thanking God for those blessings everyday, you will begin to experience increase like never before.
Raise up your hands wherever you are and just say "Thank You JesusπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ" the only thing you can give Him is your praise and gratitude and don't deny Him this morning.

Do You Honor God With Money

If pastor was to tell everyone to raise their offering without the envelopes would you be proud of your offering?

You work 24/7/365 to get money at the end of the month, the prostitute stays on the road alone at midnight to get money, the armed robber steals to get money! 

Money is the biggest motivator of man! You give a good part of your life every year to earn money! Even the armed robber asks you "your money or your life?" Your money is your life! 

If you are a true worshipper, if you truly love God, you will worship God with money! God doesn't spend money but He looks for HONOR! 

Was it when they mentioned offering time that you dipped your hand in your pocket to find anything and then you squeezed it in the offering envelope? God is watching all of these and it is keeping you from getting blessed. 

The bible says in Malachi 1:6 

“A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If then I am a father, where is my honor? And if I am a master, where is my fear? 

Do you honor God with your tithes and offerings? You may ask how do I honor God with my tithes and offerings?

1. Let it be the first money you remove every week and let it be the cleanest notes. I change my offering to dollars every service. The bible says we should give God the first and the best. 

2. Keep it apart. Your tithes and offering is not money you borrow from and return, honor God, don't even touch it. 

3. Give God your best. Your offering should not be less than your internet subscription and DSTV.  

4. The higher your offering, the higher comes back to you. The bible says in Luke 6:38 give and it will come back to you, the amount you give determines the amount you will get back.

This is an apocalypse, a deep secret, if God didn't reveal it you will never know it. Do yourself a favor, begin to reverence God with money and watch your life move forward in Jesus name.

Tell Your Partner You Are Born Again

Jerry heard his phone ring and when he saw the number, he ignored the call. He had just given his life to Christ and for the past one week he had enjoyed sweet fellowship with God. There were many things he had to deal with, one of which was his girlfriend. How would he tell her he was now born again? She would laugh and then think he was trying to break up with her. He had to break up with her, he couldn't have sex and drink with her any longer. 

Jerry kept on ignoring her calls but he wasn't prepared for what happened next, he saw the knob on his door open and Freda walked in, he felt himself sweat, she was the sexiest woman he knew, he couldn't resist her and she knew it. 

"Awww my baby, why have you not been picking my calls?" She hugged him and buried his head in the middle of her breasts. Her sexy sapphire scents attar filled his nose  and before  he knew it his hands were on her waist and then on her bum and in 10 minutes they lay breathless on the bed. 

Jerry was sad, how could he tell her he was born again after having sex with her again?  He made up his mind to tell her all the same. He sat up and said to her "baby we need to talk". She looked at him and shook her head "don't tell me you are breaking up with me" 

Jerry told her everything and to his surprise, she too had actually became born again but she didn't want to mention it to Jerry because she didn't want to lose him.  There and then they confessed their sins and asked God to help them be good Christians.  They stayed off sex from that moment and a year later they were married. 

Are you dealing with this kind of challenge in your relationship? Tell your partner you are now born again, the wrong one will go and the right one will want you to lead them to Christ. Don't hide the amazing blessing God has given you. May God help us all in Jesus name.

Don't Get Familiar

Familiarity is a killer, many have lost their blessings and deliverance because they were familiar or looked down on the vessel God wanted to use. 
Did you know that Jesus was like everyone else until He was 30 years old? His mother knew He wasn't ordinary because of how He was conceived but Jesus was a carpenter.

It's likely that if you lived around that time in Nazareth, you could have furniture in your home made by Joseph and Jesus.  

Yet when Jesus began to manifest His true nature, many people in that region could not switch to accept Him. They said in John 6:42  "Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, 'I came down from heaven'?" The bible told us that Jesus could not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.

How you receive people is important. How do you receive your parents? How do you receive your pastor? How do you receive your boss? How do you receive your spouse? 

I have a distaste for people who lack honor. When you don't honor people you can't be honored and you can't get much out of life.  Don't be familiar with people who carry grace, you can't attract anything you become familiar with, you can only attract what you respect and honor.  The grace you respect and honor is the grace that works in your life. 

May we all receive wisdom in Jesus name.

Testimony Thursday


In June 2015, my pastor called for a seed; he rarely does that and it's maybe once a year, church needed to buy the land opposite the church building. My salary was 140k but I was the first to jump out and I sowed 100k, God took care of us and we didn't even lack anything.

Towards the end of 2016, pastor called for another seed towards the 12 days of glory, the lineup for 2017 was crazy, all of the men of God coming to preach were exceptional people, it would cost a lot of money. I was also one of the first people to jump up and this time I sowed a million. (Note that in 2015, I sowed 100k, in 2016 God had blessed me that I could sow a million).

I wasn't sowing because I had a lot of money, as a matter of fact I couldn't afford it but when you don't have is when you should give the most!

During the 12 days of glory I sat in church just meditating when I heard the Holy Spirit say "start a franchise". Oh I love that voice, listening to that voice has changed my life! I love when the Holy Spirit gives me an idea, there is MONEY behind it! 😁😁😁

I prayed a little more and I discussed with one of my mentors then I informed my distributors about the franchise. It would cost a million Naira a year to have a Sapphire Scents franchise and all that is required is that you sell only Sapphire Scents products.  In less than a week of sharing the idea, one of our distributors paid for the franchise on the Island (Lekki/VI). We plan to have two in Lagos; one on the island and the other on the mainland.

Wow! Just like that! How did a business that started just less than 2 years ago with N30,000 command  a price tag of one million Naira a year for using its name on a store? πŸ™†πŸ™†πŸ™† only God could have done that!

When I see Christians doing MMM and all types of funny business, I shake my head because they don't know that God is a MULTIPLIER! God did not promise addition, He promised to MULTIPLY everything you place in His hands!

Do yourself a favor, do business with God and you will be shocked at what He will do. The most fertile ground in the world is the Gospel and any money you place in the hands of a true man of God will multiply. God did it for me and He will do it for you in Jesus name.

Wisdom For Single Women


Babe, you are beautiful and sexy and you know it. Heads turn when you pass and all kinds of men want to give you a lift on your way to work every morning. You realize you have a choice so you select the best cars, no Toyotas or Hondas only German machines like the Mercedes and BMW and British machines like the Range Rover. 

You chose to ignore that most of these men have a wedding ring on their finger but you don't mind, it's just a lift even though you know there will be more but you wouldn't push it they are boring men anyways with their potbellies and boastful stories.

All of that changed the day you met Richard, you were hoping he wasn't married and when you saw that ring on his finger  you hated his wife immediately, he was rich, young and handsome, any woman's dream, he was a perfect gentleman with a slight British accent. God! Why couldn't I find any single man like this? You thought to yourself. In the meantime you would share Richard with his wife. So when he put his hands on your thighs and slipped it up your skirt one evening you didn't mind, your eyes twinkled and encouraged him. Now you are having a full blown affair with a married man and you don't care. 

I thought you should know that you will reap what you sow and much more than you sow. Visit his Facebook page and check his pictures, he wasn't always that handsome and rich, he met a young woman like you and she encouraged him, helped him and gave him peace of mind to become the man that you are attracted to. If you find a man and build a life with him from scratch he will become the Richard you are having an affair with right now. God is a just God and you will pay for it, nobody knows when but God will pay you back. I just thought you should know these things and maybe it will help you think about your actions.

Be Still and Know I Am God

#EarlyMorningGinger The Holy Spirit showed me something yesterday. It was a bucket positioned at the mouth of a tap and the water was pouring into it.

Then He said that unfortunately most of us are like buckets moving everywhere swinging back and forth. We try to help God when all He has asked us to do is receive.

Psalm 46:10 says
He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

God can only take the glory when you know that only God could have done it. Have you been at that place when you tried all that you could and failed but the moment you relaxed things started working?  Cease from your hustles and enter into God's rest, position through praise and worship and He will pour blessings into you in Jesus name.

Testimony Thursday


Something began to happen to me between December and now that made me understand that God is my Source and every other thing is a resource.

You see in my little mind I had God all figured out, I felt that God would channel every blessing that came to me through my business but God began to blow my mind.

Almost everyday people would walk up to me and give me free things! Free money, free clothes and many more.

Ladies and gentlemen please don't box God He can decide to bless you anyhow, you may be jobless right now and that may be the time that God will bless you the most, He doesn't NEED your efforts to do what He will do. He wants you to RELAX and REST in Him!  That job or business is not your source, God is your source and without a job or business you will still be fine because God has a covenant to take care of you.

One scripture that you should never forget is Isaiah 46:4 I will be your God throughout your lifetime--until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.

Don't ever think you will suffer if you don't have a physical source of income, you could say there are people who suffered when they lost their job, it's because they didn't believe that God would take care of them. From this moment and for the rest of your life, please rest in God. The day you believe this is the day you just started living.

My COZA Experience

I talked about how I met Pastor Biodun and COZA and how God used him to change my life. 

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Testimony Thursday


I resigned from my job in December 2015 but I had to fill some forms and return one month salary in January of 2016 which I did, I also had a chat with our boss, he had just been appointed and he wanted to know why I was leaving. I told him that I had been transferred out of Abuja and that there was a yearly programme in my church called the 12 Days of Glory then I looked him straight in the eye and said "Sir if you give me a million dollars I can't miss the programme". He looked at me and said "wow, God has a way of honoring people like you".  I thanked him and left.

The executive director of that organization gets paid in millions every month, it's just a year later and  I can afford to give out his salary at the beginning of the year! πŸ™†πŸ™†. God indeed knows how to honor His own!

You have been on that job for 5 years and it's not as if the salary is spectacular, your boss will not let you go to church, you don't even have time to read your bible all because you want to stay on that job. Listen to me, try God! If you have to choose between God and that job choose God and He will honor you.
