Dear believer, it may be hard for you to comprehend this truth but your life in no longer yours. You totally belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. What this means is that you can no longer live on your own terms but on HIS terms. You can no longer live as you like because you are now in the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ. You have to pursue his agenda and blue print for your life and not yours. Continue reading

Focus On Your calling.
Success is the result of a singular focus on your calling.
Failure is the result of trying to do so many things at the same time.
Do not waste your time trying to save the world. You cannot save the world. It is too big for you to save. The problems in the world are to numerous for you to solve. This is why you should discover and focus entirely on your calling and nothing else.
Your calling is the reason why you are alive. Your calling is your assignment. This is where you should invest your time, skill-set, energy, money and other resources. Continue reading
It is a mistake to put your trust in any man.
There are some good people in this world, but human nature is essentially evil. To put your trust in any man is to jeopardize your life.
Jesus knew this. He experienced it in his life and ministry.
In John 2:23-25, And when He was in Jerusalem in the Passover, in the Feast, many believed in His name, beholding His signs that He was doing.But Jesus on His part did not did entrust Himself to them, because of His knowing all men,and because He had no need that anyone should testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.
When he was entering Jerusalem, thousands came out to celebrate him, even wanted to make him king but he refused because he knew the nature of man, that it was essentially evil.
In his ministry Jesus healed hundreds, perhaps thousands of people. They followed him for miracles, for loaves of bread and fish. However, when the true test came everyone of them abandoned him. Continue reading
Some of you are waiting for your pastor, bishop, prophet, apostle to lay hands on you, ordain you and ‘release’ you into ministry. You will wait until you are 100 years old, and while waiting you will become totally useless to yourself, the kingdom and the world. You will also become discouraged, angry and bitter.

Charlie, Susan’s husband went to war. He wrote letters consistently to his wife Susan for 350 days and they were delivered always by the same postman, John.
After one year, Charlie returned home from war, and Susan got married to John, the postman.😭
Moral: Consistency Pays.😂
What we see consistently, who we interact with consistently is who and what we will be attracted to.
It is the power of advertising.
You see an advert for 30 days straight and it gets into your subconscious.
Always position yourself before your audience. Consistency Pays.
Some of you guys are so stupid. You have this hot babe you want to marry and you allow your friends to see her when you are not around and chat with her. One day, the power of consistency will kick in and they will get attracted to each other and boom! Be wise.
Many of you don’t post anything.
You don’t retweet or share.
You don’t make contributions.
People don’t see you.
They don’t know you exist.
But you call yourself ‘a brand influencer.’
My good friend, you are not influencing nothing.
People are attracted to ONLY what and who they see.
Have you seen some really useless accounts that have immoral, vile, disgusting content, BUT they have so many followers?😭
That account is consistently posting rubbish. Those who like such rubbish see it daily and are attracted to it and the account grows.
Instead of being a source of finding inner strength and wisdom to take action, prayer can become a crutch, an excuse, a reason for leaving things undone, leaving things the way they are, refusing to do anything to move your life forward.
Instead of taking action, instead of doing something, doing what we can to change our situation, we resort to prayer, not to empower us to act, but an empty ritual behind which we hide from the reality of our lives, therefore things remain as they are because we do not take action.
It is action that changes things.
It is action that causes us to assert ourselves, assert our vision, ideas, thoughts on reality.
It is action that moves us in the direction of our dreams.
Practiced right, prayer ought to pull us into the arena of action with wisdom.
Prayer should be a spiritual exercise from where we receive clarity, inner strength and divine strategies to take action.
Prayer should not be a cop-out or a denial of reality. It should not cause us to live inside of a shell, inside a bubble of illusions. Continue reading
God wants you to prosper.
He delights in, takes pleasure in the prosperity of his saints. He loves to see His children do well in life as they walk in the centre of His will. He wants you to prosper in your assignment, business, career, job, ministry and in all that you do.
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause:
yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
There is a promise of prosperity for those who serve The Lord and walk in obedience to His will.
If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
In the first Psalm The Lord said if you do not walk in ungodly counsel, if you do not walk with sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful, whatsoever you do will prosper.
True prosperity is more than the accumulation of money and material things. True prosperity is an act of divine providence, empowering you with the necessary economic, social and political resources you require to pursue and fulfil His Will and kingdom agenda for your life, for the Body of Christ and for the world. True prosperity is the divine empowerment to move in the direction of God’s will and carry out His agenda without any fear, intimidation or hinderance. This is the Will of God for all His children. True prosperity will manifest itself in our lives in different ways depending on our assignment and the grace of God on our lives. God doesn’t just give us resources for no reason. God despises waste. Every resource The Lord brings into our hands, every act of divine providence in our lives has a specific purpose in God’s divine agenda for our lives.
Prosperity for a believer in China who has an assignment to reach villages in the interior may be different for a believer who is a Wall Street banker with an assignment to reach the political elite. Both believers will receive the supernatural resources necessary for them to carry out their assignment. Both of them will walk in divine providence according to their faith, in accordance with their assignment and calling.
But how does He position us for prosperity? How does He bring prosperity into our lives? Prosperity doesn’t just happen. There is a way heaven positions the believer for true prosperity.
For decades anytime the word ‘prosperity’ was mentioned by a preacher it meant giving money to the church, to the men and women of God so that you can ‘become rich.’ These preachers didn’t know any better, so they taught what they knew. There is a place for giving in the prosperity equation, however giving is not the fundamental key that unlocks your prosperity. You can give yourself to an early grave but unless you pay attention to what we are about to discuss, you will not experience the level of prosperity The Lord desires for you.
1. The Right Place (The Mystery of Geographical Location.)
There is a place for prosperity. Kingdom prosperity is connected to a definite geographical location. When God wants you to prosper, He guides you to and instructs you to reside in a specific geographical location.
Your success, promotion, prosperity in life is tied to a geographical location. You cannot prosper ‘anywhere.’ You will not prosper ‘abroad’ if that is not where the Lord wants you to be. You may travel to a foreign country to escape the economic hardship in your country but if the Lord is not sending you there, it would be a waste of your time and life. You will prosper in a particular geographical location where The Lord wants you to be in furtherance of His kingdom agenda and in accordance to His will for your life. Continue reading
Saul was angry. He was driven by an insane rage to kill those who followed and preached Christ. He went to the high priest and asked for letters of authorization so that he could arrest any Christian he found in Damascus and bring them chained to Jerusalem. In Acts 9, he journeyed towards Damascus, with the letters in his hands and murder in his heart. He had a very specific plan in mind and that was to jail and kill as many Christians as he could. When the Martyr Steven was stoned to death, Saul was consenting to his death. The witnesses laid down their clothes at his feet to prove that they were a part of his acts of terror against Christians. His plan clearly defined in his wicked heart, Saul journeyed towards Damascus to carry out his purpose. But things were about to change.
Suddenly, a bright light from heaven knocked him off his horse and he fell to the ground in shock. Out of that light he heard the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ speak very clearly to him: ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ Saul asked, ‘who are you Lord?’ The Lord Jesus answered him, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ Then Saul trembling in great fear asked, ‘Lord, what do you want me to do?’
Read the story in Acts Chapter 9.
In that afternoon encounter, the Lord Jesus Christ redirected the course of Saul’s life forever. He completely changed his plans, his purpose and his destiny, all in one afternoon. Continue reading
Many believers have been deceived by motivational teachings to ‘follow their dream’ and pursue the ‘desires of their heart.’ They are not told that not all desires that present themselves to us are godly desires. Not all of them are approved of God for our lives. Not all of them proceed from the heart of God. Therefore, not all of them are sanctified or approved of God for us.
