DAY THIRTY: Readiness for the New

What God is doing is nothing like we ever knew. History has no record of such. When it is fully manifested, it will surprise everyone, even the prophets. Though the prophets have revelations on the context of what is coming; they may not know the full details of the content. Why? They are only accessible…

DAY NINE: Minding the Gap

Between the seen and the unseen, the known and the unknown, the received and the withheld, as well as the good and the bad, there is a gap. In this gap, each life gives definition to itself and defines its meaning and course. Most people will not realize this gap early in life; they would…

DAY SIX: Whose Idea Is It?

Imagination is a very powerful tool that God bestowed on humankind. When put to work, it creates a whole new world of experiences. On the other hand, oppression is the tool that the enemy uses to withstand any living soul from imagining great things. To a liberated spirit, capable of believing, nothing is indeed impossible….

DAY THREE:Tools and the Trade

God has given everyone a gift. Each one is meant to profit with that gift. The manifestation of these gifts comes in diverse ways; some shines so brightly in public, others glow quietly in obscurity.

Conversation with Flared Emotions

Yesterday, I had a very heated conversation with some friends in one of the places where I work, bordering on the present challenges going on in Nigeria. More than ever before, it is clearer to me why God’s intervention in Nigeria is inevitable. Without God, there is no hope! Generally speaking, I have seen young…

Of Faith and Fears

I have wondered what it means to be faithful;The meaning of this seems to elude me each time I reach out to understand it deeper than the surface.Still, despite all the complexities around the definition of this thing,This one is crystal clear – faithfulness is an offshoot of faith. When there is faith for the…

Do Not Panic

Fear indeed has torment. If you will make it through life, even as one, who is known to heaven, you will have to learn not to panic, no matter what happens. The strategy of the devil is to use the experiences you have submitted yourself to, prior to any situation, to create a narrative that…
