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 Recognition Of Your Dominant Gift.
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
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
It is okay to disagree with me or anybody else.
It is okay to say you don’t like this or like that.
It is okay to have your own views about an issue or a situation.
In fact, I like it when you disagree with me, it shows that your brain is not there for decoration, you actually use it to think.
We cannot all agree on the same issues. If we all agreed on ALL issues, that means some of us are not thinking, probing, questioning things as they are. Continue reading

2. When you are in the right place, environment or platform, you will see the right opportunities. Continue reading
Money Reveals People.
Many of you think you have good friends. In fact you resent the very thought that I dare question the loyalty of your friends. You think your friends will do anything for you if you are in a desperate situation. You think your friends will support you no matter what. You think your friends are loyal to you and nothing can shake your friendship.
But you may be wrong.
You have no idea who your friends are until they have money.
You have no idea what they are capable of doing until they have money.
You have no idea if they can be trusted until money is introduced into the equation of your friendship.
You have no idea what resides in the heart of your friends until they have money. 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
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
In American movies and novels, something evil is always about to destroy the world and an American hero saves the world by stopping it. Such events never happen in Africa. We never see African heroes save the world. We must change this narrative.
I grew up reading African writers series. While I was being taught our traditions, the average American child was taught to think global, was taught to dominate and save the world. Not one protagonist in the African novels I read saved his city, talk less the world.
Read the novels of contemporary African writers and watch our movies, how many African heroes save the world? None. We raised a generation that never saw its heroes saving the world and we wonder why Africa is always being rescued by other nations. We don’t have global heroes.
America programmed us with their movies and books to wait to be rescued by Americans or by James Bond. Where is the African hero who rescues America and Europe from destruction? Is Africa so impoverished that it cannot conceptualize its own heroes who will save the world?
I was in my 30’s when I started thinking global and by then it was already too late. Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, Steve Jobs, were thinking global in their teens. They created products to save the world. No wonder their products are global.
America will not create African heroes for us. They prefer we beg them for help, for deliverance, for life itself. We must break free of this curse. We must create our own heroes, in our novels and movies, heroes from Africa who will save the world.
