- You have a calling as an evangelist, pastor, prophet, etc, but you see people making money, so you abandoned your calling to pursue money.
Don’t be an idiot.
You have a calling and grace that kings and queens envy.
Do not allow money derail your destiny.
Pursue your assignment.
When the rich have problems they know where to run. They are rich, but spiritual things cannot be bought, neither can they be sold. They are forced to find people who carry the grace to help them.
I have helped billionaires.
I know what I carry.
Know what you carry.
Never undermine yourself or your calling. Continue reading

The Recognition Of Your Dominant Gift.
Many years ago I read Dr Mike Murdock’s book: ‘The Law Of Recognition.’ That is one of the best books I have read in my life.
There’s a chapter on the Recognition of your dominant gift, where he explained that you may have many gifts and talents, but one gift or talent will stand out and tie all other gifts together to produce at their optimum capacity.
I started ministry as a singer. After three decades, I am still a good singer. The gift of singing opened doors for me to interact with many pastors, both good and bad. I learnt a lot from that experience and I have so many stories to tell. I will leave that for another post.
Well, after a while the Lord started stirring me to write books. I told a pastor I worked with at that time and he said I was not called to write books. Some people are just insane. How can you tell someone that he is not called to do something just because you want that person to continue to work for you? Well, I ignored that pastor and started writing books. I have written over 60 books. Continue reading
The Danger Of Covetousness.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, or his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” Exodus 20: 17.
In all my years as a believer I have not heard up to 3 preachers talk about the sin of covetousness. In fact, most preachers encourage, fuel and sponsor the sin of covetousness by telling us about their luxury houses, their bank accounts, their possessions. They fuel covetousness by staging testimonies of people who got financial breakthroughs by their sacrificial giving, thereby stirring a deep greed for money and material possessions in the heart of their congregation. Majority of testimonies birth greed in people, not faith or love for Yeshua. Continue reading
For Demas, having loved this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. 2Timothy 4:10.
Demas was a co-labourer with Paul the Apostle. Demas had been through a lot with Paul; he had gone on missionary journeys with him, seen the miracles and experienced the power of the gospel, yet he turned back.
Demas had had enough of Paul and his zeal for Christ. Demas wanted to enjoy his life here and now and wasn’t waiting for Christ to reward him for his commitment to the gospel.
Demas had hopes and dreams that were unmet, he wanted to be somebody in society, he wanted to be recognised and celebrated by his peers, he eanted to be rich, he wanted to own mansions in Ephesus, he wanted to be surrounded by the mist beautiful women from Corinth. Simply put, Demas wanted to enjoy his life now. Continue reading
The Dangerous Pursuit of Happiness.
We are told by society to pursue happiness, to do the things that make us happy, to walk away from relationships and people who do not make us happy. Success coaches keep telling us to ‘do what makes you happy,’ but in spite of all these people are still very unhappy. Many people have destroyed everything of value in their lives because they pursue happiness, not purpose.
In Mark 10, Jesus told a young man to give away his wealth and follow him. You would expect that the rich man would trust that Jesus knew what was best for him and that would make him obey the instructions of the master without second thought. But contrary to all expectations the man rejected the advice given by Jesus. He held onto his money and walked away in sadness.
He was sad not because Jesus was mean to him but because Jesus told him the truth. Jesus told him what was best for him, yet he was unhappy. He was sad because he had a skewed perception of reality. He was immature in his understanding of life and the things that are of value to the Lord and the kingdom. The fact that he was unhappy does not mean that Jesus was wrong. It meant that the rich man had zero understanding of spirituality.
Money is good but on a scale of value, the will of God, the plan of God for our life, the agenda of God are more important than money.
God’s will is more important than our short term happiness.
God is more interested in your growth, in the development of your character, than in your happiness. God doesn’t want you to be happy at all costs and by all means. No. God wants you to grow. Some of you are so immature that God cannot entrust you to handle anything of importance in the kingdom. If all you are interested in is yourself, and how rich you can become, how do you expect God to place the destiny of Nations and destiny of millions of people in your hands? Continue reading

Lord, thank you for the access I have by the blood of Jesus. Thank you for the Holy Spirit my intercessor who helps me pray with accuracy.
Lord I pray that you will give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you. Lord, flood the eyes of my understanding with your light, that I may know the hope of your calling. Lord, deliver me from every darkness that clouds my mind and my emotions. Deliver me from self-deception, from delusions, from illusions of grandeur, from pride and from lies. Continue reading
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
I have something interesting to share with you today. It is about strangers.
When we were children our parents told us not to talk to strangers. They wanted to protect us. That advice worked well as long as we were children. It protected us from some crazy people out there. However, as adults, that advice is redundant, even dangerous. There is absolutely nothing good we can achieve in life without the help of strangers. To be successful in life we need strangers.
Your money is in the hands of strangers. Your success is in the hands of strangers. Your progress is determined by strangers. Favour is waiting for you with strangers. Strangers determine your future.
Success is determined by how many people we can influence or persuade to get behind our cause, to buy our products and services. The more people we can influence, the better for us.
We have to connect with as many people as possible and talk to them about the value that we have to offer. The people you know are not enough to take you to the next level. Your present contacts are not enough to help your dream fly. You require the help of people you’ve never met before in your life to assist you and take you to the next level.
Many of your friends cannot help you.
Many of your contacts cannot help you.
Many people who helped you in the past cannot help you now.
Their season to help and assist you is over.
To move to the next level, you need strangers. 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
