DAY TWENTY-FIVE: Faithfulness in Shortages

The greatest challenge of a people with a mission is the inadequacy of the resources they require to execute their task. For those who have more than enough to execute their mission, it may as well be that the mission already outlived its relevance. Why? A vision that would be timelessly relevant would require resources…

DAY SEVEN: The Word and the World

Earlier today, I was led to study from the book of James 4, where we saw that there is no such thing as a balance between the World and the WORD of God; they actually do not agree on any subject. Later on in the day, I was reminded by Facebook that four years ago,…

Reflections on What Matters.

It has been a while since I wrote on this platform. I have been so busy lately that writing seems to be happening in my heart more than with my hands . . . The good news is that I have so much to share with you, especially in this yuletide season. Yesterday, I took…

Of Ministrations and Fellowship

Recently, I had a conversation with a pastor in training. He is presently a student at a renowned Bible College. We had the rare opportunity of talking about working in ministry. After spending some time with him, I found out that he has a very deep conviction that God has called him into ministry but…

An Unknown Companion

On this journey, many had suffered a loss; wreckage, and undue troubles because of misinformation on ‘who’ [not what] the destination is,…

Re-Branded Assault

The devil is no longer on a rampage that is characterized by what we are used to. He no longer operates with hate and obvious ‘negatives’. . . He is the king of subtlety and he is always rebranding. All the negatives that we have come to associate with the devil are generally seen as…

The Sharp Edge of Faithfulness

The faithfulness of God answers for all men in their time of dire needs, His righteousness and justice are always the objectives when all matters are before Him.
