Dear believer, the fulfilment of your purpose is tied to a specific geographical location. Being in the right location will give you speed, but the wrong location can stagnate and make you struggle unnecessarily. Continue reading

TEKEL: Weighed in the balance and found wanting.
In the book of Daniel 5, while king Belteshazzar was drinking with his wives and concubines, desecrating holy vessels dedicated to the Lord, he saw a hand appear and write some words on the wall: MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN.
Nobody could give an interpretation of these words, but the queen told the king about Daniel and he was brought before the king. The queen said there was a spirit of excellence in Daniel which made him understand and give solutions to complex, knotty, confusing, difficult issues.
Daniel interpreted the words to the king. What caught my attention is the second word: TEKEL. It means ‘you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting.’ Because Belteshazzar was found wanting, his kingdom was taken away from him and given to another.
This text got me thinking about our relationship with the Lord. Continue reading
My latest book is titled FINDING DIRECTION. It was released last year and it is available on Amazon.
It is the best book I have written. To put this in perspective, I have written over 60 books in over twenty five years.
All the books I have written brought me to a place where I could write Finding Direction with such level of excellence. If I had not written those 60 books, I would never have been in a position to write Finding Direction. Continue reading
Strangers Are The Key To Your Success.
I am excited to share this with you.
This could change your life.
One of the greatest lessons you will learn in life is that your success lies not in the hands of people you know or you are familiar with, but it lies in the hands of complete strangers.
Your money is hidden not in the pockets of your friends but in the pockets of strangers.
Your customers and clients are going to be strangers.
Your helpers, people who will help you manifest your dream, are not going to be people you know but they are going to be strangers.
Therefore, if you want to make progress you must learn to approach strangers and ask them for what you want. Continue reading
Many of you ask friends for advice on your dream.
It is a terrible mistake.
Many will want you to remain at your current level until the day you die. It is the monkey mentality. They will never help you rise.
Keep your mouth shut.
Work in silence.
Show results. Continue reading
Why are people poor?
1. They want something for nothing.
They want to be rich without work.
They gamble, engage in betting because they believe in luck.
They hope to hit a jackpot someday.
But hope without clarity and strategic action compounds their cycle of poverty. Continue reading
One of the lessons you have to learn very quickly if you want to be successful is that what you place your attention on will soon become a reality in your life.
Your attention is like a powerful magnet which pulls you towards things and pulls certain things towards you.
Look around you.
Everything you see presently manifesting in your life is as a result of the attention you’ve given it.
Those nice shoes.
That lovely dress.
That new laptop.
You gave it your attention, then your attention moves you in the direction of making it a reality and today it has manifested in your life. Continue reading
There are certain people assigned by God to our lives to help us function in and accomplish our assignments. They are helpers. We should pray that helpers find us, and we find them by an act of divine providence. Continue reading
Economics deals with money. It is economics that attracts money, not spirituality. Seeds, tithing, prayer, etc, will not make you rich. If you want money, deliver value in the marketplace. Money is a reward for value./1
Never confuse spirituality for economics. Never confuse church activity for economic activity. Your pastor says your spirituality will make you rich. Don’t be a fool. There is not one thing you do in church that will make you rich. Money is attracted to value./2 Continue reading
When God lays it on your heart or tells you: “Call Raymond,” “Call Sally,” “Call Andre,” “Call Felicia,” he wants you to pick up your phone, he wants you to drop whatever you are doing, he wants you to forget everything else, he wants you to pay total attention and call that person.
Someone may be saying, “Praise, I got it. So, God wants me to call Andre. I will do it when I am ready.” No. He doesn’t want you to call that person later. He doesn’t want you to do it after the day’s work. He doesn’t want you to do it last thing before you go to bed at night. He doesn’t want you to do it when you resume at work tomorrow morning. No. He wants you to do it now.
When we delay, we miss opportunities. When we delay, we miss out on our breakthroughs. Many of us have delayed making important calls only to discover days later that if we had made that call immediately it crossed our minds, we would have struck an opportunity. If we had put down what we were doing and spent just five minutes to make that call we would have been recipients of a blessing. Continue reading
