Diamond in the Rough

I entered a taxi in Ibadan today and this driver has the appearance of someone you would deacribe as ‘street’ – bruises and marks from old fight wounds…he is the stereotype of an ‘area boy’ he should not care about how anyone feels. To my surprise, he has such warm personality that he responded to…

Trials in Transit

Exactly two years ago, I was on my way to Lagos to book a venue for our yearly HOPE Conference that normally happens in February each year. I did not plan to travel that morning…I just wanted to enjoy my holiday a little bit more; but I was lrompted in my spirit to travel to…

Dire Dreams

For a bit of perspective I have been in the business of helping people bring their ideas to life for about 22years. In these years, one thing has been so recurring, for me, to the point of despair. Each time I encounter one, I literally shut down. I have found too many people unable to…

Is It Home?

Today, on my way out to church service, I had to walk past an untared portion of the way. I was so careful that I was almost doing a catwalk to be sure my shoes weren’t dusty before I get to show up before God (I can be very detailed like that) However, on my…

Peace.

The tear of the oppressed, The cry of the helpless, The pain of the powerless, The trials of the trodden… All of these are audible to God, He is the only Hope for those who seek. Do not be discouraged, The LORD is God. The chivalry of the strong will fall, The help of a…

God and The Lowly

Thugs on the street and very ‘broke’ people have kept their words more than refined and buoyant folks. It seems for the former, all they have are their words, so it counts… Well, ironically, they share this trait with God, who exalts His words above His name. Who do you belong to? Thugs on the…

This Season

This was first written in 2015. I looked back at these four years, not much has changed in the scheme of things. We have a lot of work to do and those entrusted with these kingdom responsibilities must wake up from their sleep and slumber. In the scheme of things, many things are never as…

Comfort From Before Time

Every opportunity you have to be a vessel in God’s house is an investment that is coming back with a return to you. Whatever you do with it will matter more than you know. So, it is wise to make sure that you do your best because it is coming back to you in many…

Heaven’s Verdict

If anyone is still upright in this season, the posture in the world would tell; If anyone is still righteous in present circumstances, the scale of resistance from the world would tell. Now that it seems hopeless to pursue restoration and it seems foolish to faithfully stick to the Word, God still speaks clearly! The…

Shade For Many

Once a seed, Now home for many birds; Once a tender shoot, Now a huge shade for many people. It is a curse not to grow in stature, Environmental conditions may be ever-changing and unfavourable, but you must grow! When you have grown to stature, there is one more thing that is left, Being the…
