Principles for Quality Fatherhood

There is an ordinance that all fathers should know and if you are struggling with money to take care of your children, this may just be your deliverance. When we had our first daughter Ruby, we were still squatting in my brother's house and we didn't even have a car so I took my wife to the hospital in a cab and brought her back with my baby in a cab. Money was very tight and I was trusting God on how to take care of my family. People began to come and greet us and I remember vividly that when one of our friends came, he gave me an envelope with N10,000 in it and the Holy Spirit said to me "don't touch it, sow it". Ladies and gentlemen, that 10k was like one million naira at that time but I knew it was the Holy Spirit. I got to church and I put that money on the altar then I asked God to bless me so I could take care of my family, I asked that God should help me give them the best and from that day things began to get better. My daughters are ages 3 and 1 and God has helped me to give them the very best. Are you a father or an expectant father? Sow the first seed anyone gives to your baby and watch God send you help and if you missed it at that time, you can still take a seed and sow it for your children. The bible says in Exodus 34:19 "The first offspring of every womb belongs to me, including all the firstborn males of your livestock, whether from herd or flock." Obviously you can't drop your baby in the offering basket 😁😁🤣 but you can redeem with a seed and strike a covenant of abundance with God. I pray for all fathers and husbands that God will open your eyes to understand that the spiritual controls the physical in Jesus name.

Faith Without Works is Dead

So its another year and once again like previous years you have written down the things you want to achieve this year, most of them are big dreams and you don't even know how it will come to pass but you wrote it down nonetheless and you are trusting God to bring it to pass. You are going to pray and fast over the list and God will make it happen. That's good but it's not good enough because faith without works is DEAD! (James 2:14) Faith must have corresponding action! So you want to buy a car this year? Do you know the exact one you want? Have you gone to a car shop to spy the land? You may not have a kobo right now but sit in the car of your dreams, even request to drive it around a little; that is spying the land! Begin to put money aside, your dream may cost 10 million but begin to save 1000 Naira, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step! God may instruct you to sow your savings or He may send you 10 million but you must take steps if your dreams will come true this year. David knew his stone could not kill Goliath but that was the seed he had to exercise his faith. He knew that when he threw the stone God would take over! This year, do your best and God will do the rest but don't sit on your hands and expect miracles to fall on your laps, you must take steps and as you do you will see God in action in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. #YearofTheNew #BillionNairaMark #JesusDidIt #ThankYouJesus

You Need The Breath of God

One scripture that has been ringing in my head for the past week is Genesis 2:7 "Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man's nostrils, and the man became a living person." I need you to imagine this; imagine God forming you with his hands, He is a master craftsman, He chiseled your nose and formed your cheekbones, your eyes, hands and legs but by the time He was done you were a beautiful piece of clay just like the sand castles we used to build on the beach. Then the next thing God did was to bend down to the ground and he breathed into your nose and suddenly your skin changed from sand to beautiful soft leather, your eyes opened, your hair grew then you stood upright and began to walk! The breath of life! The way God breathed into man is the way He breathes into everything He wants to bless. You can go to Yale and Harvard but if God doesn't breathe on your career, you will be like that beautiful piece of clay in the sand. You may have great ideas for business but if God doesn't breathe on your business your company will never take off. When God breathes on anything it takes on a life of its own, things are just happening and you know it has nothing to do with you! Do you have to shake in the morning to make your blood flow? Do you have to shake your head to make it function? The breath of God is the blessing of God and the blessing knows what to do! Stop chasing after people to help you, go for the breath of God. Take a minute to pray and say "God breathe on the work of my hands" God is NOT a prayer requesting God, He is a prayer ANSWERING God! Whenever you pray, God is willing to answer. You will share your testimony in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Why The Prophetic May Not Come True In Your Life

One of the most tragic factors that kill Christians is ignorance. The bible says my people perish for lack of knowledge not lack of prayer and fasting or sowing seeds and tithing but LACK OF KNOWLEDGE! Your pastor may be praying for the church and everyone is shouting "Amen" but the truth is not everyone shouting Amen at the top of their lungs will be blessed! There are conditions that makes the prayers of a man of God come true in your life. 1. How you receive the man of God: Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's anointing but Elijah told him "if you see me go up to heaven, you will have it". As Elijah went up Elisha screamed "my father, my father". He did not scream "my pastor or my prophet" Newsflash! Only sons have the right to inherit! If you want the word of a man of God to come to pass in your life, you must see them as your father. Only a foolish son insults his father and only a bastard will let them insult his father in your presence and keep quiet. When people start talking about your pastor and you sit there and smile or you even join them then you come to church and say "amen" to his prayers, you are wasting your time because his prayers will NEVER come to pass over you. 2. Joy: Isaiah 12:3 says "with joy we draw water from the wells of salvation". Joy is a force, it brings answers to your prayers! Surround yourself with worship music, dance, sing and shout today and watch how blessings and answer to prayers will begin to flow to you. 3. Confessing the Word: When your pastor declares a word that you believe is for you, write it down and begin to confess it over yourself everyday. Every morning and night declare that "money will not be my problem this year". Your life moves in the direction of your words, you may not see it immediately but a process has began and in few months you will realise that your needs are constantly being met. May we walk in wisdom this year in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Testimony Thursday

As people congratulated me for being named one of the 100 most influential Nigerians for 2017 my mind flashed back to December 2014. I remember walking to City Park Wuse from my office, I love the serenity of that place and if government is ever willing to sell that property I will buy it. I have a spot where I pray and meditate everytime I go there. On this day, I was just speaking in tongues and pouring my heart to God because of all the challenges I was facing; 130k salary, no house, no car, matrress on the floor with an 8 month pregnant wife and people who don't like you giving you the "ntoi 😛😛😜😜😜 God don catch you" look. I was overwhelmed and as I poured my heart to God, the Holy Spirit led me to Isaiah 41:18 (ERV)" I will change the desert into a lake filled with water ". He began to tell me that I could not finish drinking the water in a lake and that He would give me something that I would drink from and be full and others would drink and be full. Few months later, Sapphire Scents started. Your mess is a message, your test is a testimony, God will use your adverse situation to advertise you, God will take you from the pit and set you on high in the. This is my testimony and I give God all the glory. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.
