Flush Their Evil Schemes And Love Them Even More

Image
"Evil schemes from manipulative people don't utterly leave us heartbroken, they teach us new techniques to operate with."
In search of a bosom friend, I fell into a situation worse than a Ponzi Scheme.

The supposed "new bosom friend" was such a motivational speaker, little did I know he was trying to win me over and take advantage of my sacrificial nature.

Now....
Imagine doing a strenuous business proposal on credit which cost you so many sleepless nights and brainstorming days...  Imagine graduating into lending the same person an amount money because they claimed you were their last resort with the excuse that their money was tied to a fixed deposit, assuring you that immediately the investment is broken, they'll pay you in full and even add an interest for your patience and kind gesture...  Imagine being lied to for many months with many excuses manufactured from the lake of hell... Imagine having to stare at the custom-made birthday gift you earlier w…

Faithlessness Doesn't Terminate His Faithfulness

Image
A Faithless man is one who remains untrue to what ought to command his fidelity or allegiance, but a Faithful man is one who is loyal, dependable and is prudent in all things.

Anchor Scripture: {Romans 3:4}MSG Translation
"God keeps his word even when the whole word is lying through their teeth."

Subscribing to faithlessness doesn't terminate God's irrevocable faithfulness, for He is full of grace, wisdom, virtue, power, and glory. He owns it all and decides who to extravagantly hand a portion to.

Our wrongdoing only underlines and confirms God's rightdoing. Our bad words don't even make a dent in his good words.

Faithlessness distants us from the blessings He extravagantly dishes out on a platter, but faithfulness grants us access into the citadel of Faithfulness - God.

Choose Faithfulness over Faithlessness and larch unto the one Faithful God who promises to stick by our side and never let us down, for he cannot disown Himself.

Have a Faithful Day Guys!

But I'm Only 17

Image
Somy: Your choice of songs are not tastefully put together, you know the lyrics to all the noisy songs on your cell phone, It's awkward that you do not have a single godly-based song with meaningful content.

Ife: Ahn ahn, Somy, but I'm only 17

Somy: In shock* Wow, seriously?

The above ridiculous conversation ensued between I and my baby sister, I was ashamed on her behalf, but unfortunately, she thought her response was really cool.

You try to correct the 21st century teen, and the distasteful feedback you obtain is "but I'm only 17." Only 17? Really?

News Flash: A lot can happen at age 17!

(Timid) Timothy was called into ministry at age 17

Seventeen year old Nick D'Aloisio set the internet on fire when it was announced that a smartphone he created in his spare time has been bought by yahoo at a whopping $30 Million.

At 17, award winning Belgium based Austro-Nigerian photographer, David Uzochukwu earned accolades from Canon, Flickr, and EyeEm, who named him …

Entitlement Mentality

Image
Entitlement Mentality is a "me me'' affair. It's a selfish way of reasoning.

''It's okay to seek help because we all need help to rise, but it is not okay to feel entitled to receiving help. Help is a privilege not a right''.
Anchor Scripture: {Proverbs 3:5-6}
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not in your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to Him, and He will make your path straight."

Most people especially Nigerians believe it is the sole responsibility of their relatives to foot their bills or provide them with a job when their parents fail. It's typical to get upset when this happens but it is not an ideal mentality. The Entitlement mentality has to stop! What happened to doing or getting it yourself through the strength that God extravagantly disburses?
God delivered me from the Entitlement Mentality, I used to be a victim.

I know an unmarried woman in her mid-thirties who still rains curses on her rich un…

Your Adversary Is Relevant!

Image
Do you know we can never become better versions of ourselves or actualize destiny without the presence of adversaries?

News Flash: Our Promise Land Is Not Empty; It is Filled With Adversaries.

The waggling tongues of adversaries is a proof that we are in our promise land or getting closer to it. Consciously or Subconsciously, our adversaries help us rise because they are in the habit of identifying our flaws or weaknesses, and by that, our consciousness is awoken and the drive to go even harder is prompted.

Being hated by the world is the number one sign that we are on the path of actualizing destiny.

Anchor Scripture:{ Mark 10:30}
"But he shall receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and land, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life."

Success is intricately interwoven with persecution.

In October 2014, an adversary plotted for the epic fall of Linda Ikeji, one of the most successful Bloggers in…

BAGGAGE

Image
Whatever overloads you to gives you unrest is a baggage!  It is a long-held attitude perceived as a burdensome encumbrance.

Anchor Scripture: {1Samuel 17:38-40}
"Then Saul outfitted David as a soldier in armor. He put his bronze helmet on his head and belted his sword on him over the armor. David tried to walk but but he could hardly budge.
David told Saul, 'I can't even move with all the stuff on me. I'm not used to this.' And he took it all off.
Then David took his shepherd's staff, selected five smooth stones from the brook and put them in the pocket of his shepherd's pack, and with his sling in his hand he approached Goliath.

There is no shame in being yourself! Fake people have to deal with a lot of baggage because they live in denial and self deceit.

If a 24 inch indian hair and artificial nails is naturally burdensome to you and wouldn't allow you sleep well at night, but because of the desire to belong to a particular group or class of people,…

Are You Paying Attention?

Image
Wherever you are be all there- Jim Elliot

''People may not tell you how they feel about you, but they will always show you, Pay attention.''
Are you paying attention?

Paying attention cuts across listening to a conversation, it entails perceiving body languages and acting upon it as well.

Often times, the most important decisions are made when we are not paying attention. Are you paying attention to the signs or just moved by mere words or 'justifiable' actions?  Relax and start the evaluation process allover, it will show.

Signs are gestures or actions used to convey information or an instruction. Uninterestingly, not all signs are physical.

In a world filled with more negativity and less positivity, watching closely when others are carried away is a sensitive attribute to inculcate.

Pay attention to people, pay attention to the signs in your life, and pay attention to the world around us, And You'll Win...


Have a Lit Weekend  ahead Guys!

Your Mentor May Be Wrong

Image
Only a "Malu" takes in everything without critically evaluating it.

Anchor Scripture: {1John 4:1}
"My dear friends, don't believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you."

Attaining a level where you critically handpick principles that work for ''you'' and not for ''them'' is the actual maturity phase of your life. Having a mind of your own and putting it to effective use is where wisdom lies.
A Mentor is one who consistently teaches real solidified principles of core values, such as; character, integrity, and leadership. The role of a mentor is to teach, guide, encourage and to support you. A Mentor-Less individual is headed for the ''Loss Department''.  In the same vain, a Mind-Less person is headed for Ruin or destruction.

The Holy Bible is a valid authenticated standard that has stood the test of time. It is a yardstick for reference, evaluation and investigation. The purpose of …

The Mother Factor

Image
When a Mother tenders full support to her favourite offspring, *Nwanne forgerrit, it's the ultimate backing ever needed for the actualization of destiny.
A Mother's love is a divine covering, citadel of peace, and a vessel of grace

Anchor Scripture:{Genesis 25:27-28}
"The boys grew up. Esau became an expert hunter, an outdoors-man. Jacob was a quiet man preferring life indoors among the tents. Isaac loved Esau because he loved his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

From the above Anchor Scripture, we take to cognizance that a Mother's love is ordained in Heaven, evidenced by all, and justified by norms. The sensitivity and vulnerability of a woman naturally paves the way into accessing the needful, Mothers are the highest benefactors.

Never downplay the capabilities of a Mother, for they are subtle, manipulative, disciplinarians, strategic illustrators, life-event planners, support system, and warriors all in one.

The quality and credibility of a child's life greatl…

Soul Food To Run With (Proverbs)

Image
- A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered

- Pound on a fool all you like, you can't pound out foolishness

- Just as lotions and fragrance give sensual delight, a sweet friendship refreshes the soul

- Don't respond to the stupidity of a fool, you'll only look foolish yourself

- Just as a door turns on its hinges, so a lazybones turns back over in bed

- God delights in concealing things, scientists delight in discovering things

- Don't talk about your neighbours behind their backs

- In the heat of an argument, don't betray confidences

- Don't envy bad people

- To win, you need a lot of good counsel

- It's better to be wise than strong; intelligence outranks muscle any day

- Strategic planning is the key to warfare

- Young people are prone to foolishness and fads; the cure comes through tough-minded discipline

- If you stop your ears to the cries of the poor, your cries will go unheard, unanswered

New Flame

Image
Whatever 'unapologetically' tickles your fancy at the inception (especially unplanned) is a new flame. Give it time, the tickling will subdue and naturally adjust to its status quo.

Every (new) flame can be rekindled overtime, but this time; planned and deliberate.

Ever wondered why the value of an emotional speech or music that once set your heart on fire the first time it was heard, diminishes or reduces its 'spark effect' the second time it replayed? or the high rise motivation that engulfed you after reading a portion of the Bible or an Inspirational Book that affected your next decision making? or the high-blood-pressure that trapped you until you eventually maintained a (healthy) meaningful conversation with that 'crush' of yours? It's typical. *winks

In your (new) relationship with God, spouse, associations, family, etc, You'll storm the New-Flame-Effect which will diminish, continually making deliberate moves to rekindle the flame, cements its …

Sword Of the Spirit

Image
All who speak in tongues should pray for the power to interpret.
''There are different tongues, none is without meaning''-1 Corinthians 14:10 Speaking in tongues releases the sword of the spirit for spiritual warfare. Familiarize with your ''spiritual sword'' if you have received yours, master its mechanical use, know how it operates, and run with it. In the same light, never ridicule or impose tongue-speaking on those who haven't receive theirs, rather; be patient with them and with God, create a spiritual foundation, nurture it, and cement it. This way, you'll empower your subject with the freedom to independently envisage exploits and obtain their many gifts freely given by the Father.

I sprang up from a religious background that amplified 'speaking in tongues' as a rare gift not accessible to all and disposed to a few. But then, I read my Bible again, this time; more critical, extensive, and in whole.
Currently, I'm trying the w…

DEPRESSION

Image
My heart goes out to every hard worker engulfed in the cold-mourning-room of depression. I've been there too.

Depression is not laziness, same way vulnerability is not stupidity.

Depressed people are not stupid people, they are people vulnerable to the torments of the world. When sufficient discipline to surmount pressure isn't inculcated, the result is a break down (depression).

A young lady with a vision to do exploits narrated her non-fictional story of how she opted out of her regular job to pursue that which was her life assignment. She started off not prepared for the negativity/persecution knotted with "The Path To Getting It Right" which is usually lonely as well, fell into the confiscating hands of depression, locked herself up for 10 days and nights and wept profusely.
...Then, the WORD of God showed up, consoled her, strengthened her for the task ahead, and eventually rose her to an enviable level she least expected.

Depressed people are victim of self pi…

Body Size

Image
One's body size has everything to do with people's perception but nothing to do with the individual's ability.

Whether you're tall, average, short, skinny, chubby or a plus size, the perception about YOU will take a dimensional swipe moments after an effective communication is established.

Ever wondered why a 6 footer is termed big for nothing? or the tinniest girl whom everyone undermined becomes the most dreaded when she tops the class? or that plus-sized singer who everyone ridiculed because of his unflattering looks, until he maximizes the use of his vocal ability and gives the audience a run for their money?

Anchor Scripture:{1Samuel 17:41-47} MSG Translation- Paraphrased
 "As the Philistine paced back and forth, his shield bearer in front of him, he noticed David. He took one look down on him and sneered - a mere youngster, apple-cheeked and peach-fuzzed
David answered, 'You come at me with sword and spear and battle ax. I come at you in the name of God…

You Are Not That Important To The Devil

Image
News Flash: You're not that important to the devil.

As a matter of fact, the devil terms you insignificant, you almost don't exist in his sight.

Since the devil's disgraceful exit from Heaven, all he ever tries to do is get back at God as an act of revenge.  The sole reason he played the pivotal role of crafting Adam and Eve's ruin can be linked it.

Anchor Scripture: {John 10:10}
"The devil comes only to steal, to kill and to destroy"

From the above anchor scripture, we take to cognizance that nothing good can come out of the devil. His antagonizing role can be likened to the role of an antagonist warring against a lead character in an action movie who indulges in perpetuating every good.

The only reason he torments humans is because he is jealous of the unconditional love preferentially expressed by God to them.
Literally, the only way to get at anybody you detest is to go after that which they treasure or guard jealously.

...and that's all the devil tr…

DISCERNMENT

Image
Discernment is the ability to judge well.

I know of a 'self-acclaimed' sensitive person who acts upon his emotion. He literally believes and defends anyone he holds in high esteem. A pitiful face and a motivational plea would cajole him as well.

A friend of his once asked for an amount of money to ''execute a business deal'' and this ''self acclaimed'' sensitive being emptied his savings for his friend who went on to invest the fund in MMM(the supposed business deal). *funny and worrisome right?

Anchor Scripture:{Ephesians 1:17-19}
Paul advised, "Ask the God of our master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory, to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you see exactly what He is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life He has for His followers, oh, the utter extravagance of His work in us who trust Him.''

Are you sensitive enough to recognize a prudent…

Your Prison...

Image
At some point in our lives, we'll all get imprisoned. No one can escape it.

A prison is a building to which people are legally committed as a punishment for a crime or while awaiting trial. Also, a prison can be referred to any restrictive environment, such as a harsh academy, home or zone.

There are Two types of Prisons. They consist of the following;
i. Physical Prison ( a building for the convicted and awaiting trial persons)
ii. Psychological Prison (a harsh restrictive zone)

The physical prison is an undesired arena to be confined in. It's effects can be traumatic, especially when those convicted of a particular crime are supposedly innocent. Other times, it is a rehabilitation home where convicts or awaiting trial persons come out reformed and become better citizens.

Unfortunately, some people pass through both prisons...Well, the Psychological Prison is the bone of contention in today's post.

Any state that makes you unhappy, dissatisfied or depressed  is YOUR PRIS…

FEAR

Image
Fear paralyses all that is beautiful. The moment fear is eliminated from the equation of our lives, tapping into creation process becomes handy.

Fear is synonymous with insecurity, and insecurity leaves an individual at a spot.

The only reason fearful/insecure people never make moves is because they are afraid they'll never get something better compared to that which they claim to be stuck with. The mentality has been proven wrong since the fall of Adam.

Switch fear with faith, and watch the unusual begin to happen.

Anchor Scripture{Proverbs 29:25}MSG Translation
"The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from that."

It's typical to wallow in fear for a while, but you're not allowed to enable it overshadow you for too long. What are you afraid of?  Is it about your family? Your Career? Your Spouse? Your Friends? Your Relationship? That Unforeseen Promotion You Rightly Deserve? That Business Proposal that's on the verge of getting seale…

Queen Esther...

Image
Thought I knew so much about Queen Esther until I saw the movie titled "One night with the King." It gave me an amplified vision/version of Queen Esther's characteristics.

Her unique qualities will make you love her even more, more than the King ever did.

-Queen Esther was a reader
-She was charitable
-She was free spirited
-She was pure (a virgin)
-She was teachable (she asked the King's personal aid to teach her what impresses the King)*Smart woman, Smart move!
-She passed her interview (she was truthful about her background amidst the fact that it wasn't a juicy one.)
-She was wise enough not to tell it all (she kept some confidential issues to herself)
-She was a charmer (her weapon was her intelligent conversation)
-She was vulnerable but never stupid
-She made the King fall head over heels in love with her. He remained loyal to her as well(only a few women can pull that stunt off with ease)
-She was a woman of virtue (Her dignity was so intact)
-She never …

''Follow Follow''

Image
"Follow Follow" is the 'in' thing now. It always has though. Even Jesus was a victim.

Most people tend to follow people (especially on social media platforms) for the wrong reasons. They are either monitoring, analyzing, or seeking for cheap popularity and other benefits, immediately their expectations are not met, they cut themselves off and defect to other preys with immediate effect.

Who are you following? Who is following you?  Are you in their space for the right reasons? Are they in your space for the right reasons? Watch it!

Even Peter(the mouthed guy) and John(the beloved) with all their anointing went back to fishing when ''The Celebrity Jesus'' was no more even after they had tasted the goodness of their master and experienced His mighty works first hand.

And as for the people, they followed Jesus because;
-The hungry wanted to be fed
-The poor wanted to be rich
-The sick wanted to obtain healing
-The dead wanted to be resurrected
-The nake…

MORALE

Image
Maturing from childhood to adulthood wasn't an interesting phase for me. Each day, I prayed to become an adult real quick. My lesson teacher, Uncle Daniel, would beat me to stupor until I aced all my assignments and took first position in class. He ignorantly thought he was boosting my morale level because I began to ace my assignments and come out tops in class, but unknown to him, he was harming me. My mum was another "Agile Mopol", she supported the course and didn't hesitate to praise Uncle Daniel even when Daddy Shina, the neighbour, continually visited to alert her of the child abuse that transpired while she was away. She always turned a deaf ear.

I grew up in a perpetually tensed atmosphere, for I lived in fear. Unknown to the Uncle Daniel and Mummy, they were harming me psychologically, physically, emotionally and otherwise. "Beatings will continue until morale improves" was the anthem. Even when I aced my exams, Mummy would still call me a local …

GRACE...

Image
Don't ever take "Grace" for granted.

Every man has a level of Grace that rests upon his life but some level of Grace are higher than other level of Grace.

If the Grace upon your life comes in good measures, pressed down, shaken together and is running over, don't abuse it, for there are consequences!

Anchor scripture:{John 5:14}
"A little later, Jesus found him in the temple and said, you look wonderful! You are well! Don't return to a sinning life or something worse might happen."

It is amazingly true that Grace breaks protocols on our behalf, but again, these "unmerited rights'' can terminated if sin creeps into the scene. Sin messes up the entire process and in most occasion, leaves the victim at a zero.

"Don't return to a sinning life or something worse might happen." Grace doesn't entertain sexual immorality, theft, lies, cowardice, scandal, bankruptcy, malpractice or any sinful act. Any doctrine or preaching that co…

The Law Of Contentment

Image
"Where there is no control over desire, there is no control over life and destiny." (Dr. Paul Enenche)

- If you have no control over your desire, you can't control your life

- The absence of contentment is the pathway of compromise

- Contentment is the bedrock of character, character is the key to destiny

- To be content in life is to last long on earth

Ever realized why lazy people who are unbothered with life live long? They are content in their own world! *Don't be lazy though, lol.

{1 Timothy 6:68}
"But godliness with contentment (great gain), we brought nothing to the world, we are taking nothing back."

{Jeremiah 17:11}
"Get money by cunning and dubious means, in the end, you shall be confirmed a fool."

Here's the gag;
* Be satisfied with what you have and where you are and trust God to take you higher.
*Absence of contentment - Latency to compromise.
* No control over life - No control over desire.
* Absence of discipline - Doorway to d…

Failure:

Image
Sometimes, it is the best way to figure out where you are going...

Failure means lack of success. And when there is lack, seek knowledge!
Knowledge ushers in success overtime. The process of acquiring knowledge to tackle lack may seem painfully slow, but here's the good-news: There is improvement, and there is a learning process.

Giving it all up isn't profitable. The world needs your time, prayer, talents and treasures.
Even scripture never promised the world was an easy venture, It required different level or phases of battles before victory became eminent. (Take a cue from King David and St.Paul)

In the course of failure; hustle, thrive, soar even higher still. There is no shame in hustling, the eyes of your spectators won't even harm you, I promise.*lol. It's the mind you'll have to train/convince to remain focused and elude distraction. Some of these distraction include; procrastination, naysayers, insecurity, opinion advocates (those who advise others but th…

You Think You're Having A Bad Day?

Image
It actually gets really tiring making expenses over something you thought the initial investments ought to have covered up for, but hey! such is life, it throws unexpected shots. It is ones' sole responsibility of mastering the art of goal keeping, so that even when some shots are fired and conceded, overall defeat is not preeminent.

Yesterday started off really cool for me, it always does when I start with God. Along the way, list of expenses began to roll in, deep in thoughts, I termed everything " a process" and quietly talked to God to help speedy up the process so that a new phase is unraveled. Above all, my thanksgiving list was quite juicy and His praise never left my lips still.
Moreover, It was my mum's remembrance day and I had already keyed into the miracle which I get to experience on the 15th day of every month. *My mum lives on, this is personal!

There was a situation of a flat tyre, as we pulled over beside the available "vulcanizer" to get …

Virtue Left Me...

Image
There are TWO times virtue leaves an individual. First, is when he is filled with the Holy Spirit (and his works are been manifested) but he falls into sin. Second, is when an individual is filled with the Holy Spirit but performs tons of miracle and is left exhausted.

Let's term the former "lower virtue" and the latter " higher virtue."

Both category of virtue need Prayer (intercessors/ intercessory) to be reinstated. Uninterestingly, the lower virtue takes a lot of time to be reinstated. However, the higher virtue can be reinstated with ease.

Virtues are ethical behaviours showing high moral standards. Subscribing to sin leads to loss of the lower virtue, which send the sufferer into depression, stagnation, confusion, doubt, disbelief, trauma, sober moments, and all other negative psychological imbalance.

Subscribing to holiness without introducing sin into the picture during workings of miracles reintroduces the sufferer/victim into the next level (phase) o…

Yay! I'm Back!!

Image
It's been so cold from my end right? No Ellahillz Blog Post(s)on your timeline and all...*lol. Oh well, the good thing is that I'm back and I'm going to be around for a long long time.

The last few weeks were so hectic for me, the sleepless nights were epic, but hey! they were entirely worth it. And to God be the glory, my exams sailed in swift progress even though I'm still experiencing 'hangovers' from those sleepless night. lol..* my vision has been so blurry lately ehn,,, well, it'll adjust with time as I return to the status quo.

The ''New'' Beast

Image
A beast is not just an ugly creature with ten horns and seven faces as referenced in the book of Revelation 13. If you possess identical characteristics such as; having a loud mouth, being boastful and blasphemous, *nwanne forgerrit, you're a beast.

A pretty/handsome face with an ugly mind = Beast. Why is this equation tangible? Humans are in the habit of accessing or passing judgement based on the outward, only God is always in the habit of accessing and making his final verdict based the inward.

Peep{Jeremiah 17:10}
"I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deed."

{Luke 16:15}
"Then He said to them, you appear righteous in the public, but God knows your heart. What this world honours is detestable in the sight of God."

You see, what society sees and calls monumental, God sees through and calls monstrous. We live in a world where people draw their conclusion based on all they …

Above all, Gag Thy Tongue!

Image
Quit sharing ridiculous bad news and gossips, you're not a garbage truck.

Everybody is fighting their unique battles and running their race. Before you stoop so low or subscribe to gossiping about another (especially their private lives), think again.

It's every shade of wrong to make others a topic/subject of your discussion especially when you know nothing about their lives.  We live in a world digital world where people now comfortably predict the lives of others for a living, either from pictures, outdoor events, get-together, etc and can affirm their assertion is a 100% correct.

Words hurt, words heal, the power to make or to maim is in the mouth. Watch what you say! Gossiping about others behind their back them makes you behind them. If you have nothing nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

Most people spend too much time trying to figure out how others live, forgetting that their own lives needs to evaluated, reevaluated and put together to aid in the…

DISCIPLINE

Image
Most people are in the habit of using their personality as a yardstick to accessing other people's personality. That is wrong in every ramification!

That you're not disciplined enough to maintain a healthy conversation with the opposite sex "without catching feelings" doesn't mean others will subscribe to your composition. That you're not disciplined enough to look away from that beautiful nanny when you and wifey are having confrontations will warrant another hubby to look in the direction of his nanny.

The above differences and much more which are too many to be outlined are termed "individual differences."
In truth, positive traits don't come easy, they go hand in gloves with a lot of self discipline and strict adherence to the word of God.

More so, individual weaknesses vary as well, just like individual strengths or capabilities vary.  That you have a lot of complex issues/insecurities going on doesn't mean the 'guy or babe' ne…

EXEMPTION

Image
What's your grace level like?  Is it pressed down, shaken together and spilling over like that of Joshua and Caleb?  Can it exempt you from tragic circumstances, misdemeanor or negative atmospheres?

Everybody is exposed to grace but not everybody is disposed to grace, for grace-overflow is birthed by total surrender to the instruction, guidance and absolute trust in the lord.

Grace breaks protocols on one's behalf.

Anchor Scripture: {Numbers: 32:10-12}
"And God angry - oh did he get angry! He swore: They'll never get to see it; none of those who came up out of Egypt who are twenty years and older will ever get to see the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They weren't interested in following me - their hearts weren't in it. None, except for Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua son of Nun; they followed me - their hearts were in it."

Joshua and Caleb oozed of grace. They were the only ones exempted from the agonizing ordeal that was …

Don't Be In A Rush To Become A Teacher

Image
It'll interest you to know that teachers have the most noble profession on earth. If you're a teacher or a prospect teacher, bottles up! *e no easy.

Teaching is a highly responsible work. It's exhausting, it entails a whole lot of discipline to prepare self. Teachers are blessed with the gift of impacting knowledge, guiding and molding their subjects in the right path.
Anchor Scripture: {James 3:2} MSG Translation "Teachers are held to the strictest standards. And none of us is strictly qualified. We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouths. If you could find someone whose speech was perfectly true, you'd have a perfect person, in perfect control of life."
Why do teachers have the most sensitive job on earth?  It easy... They make use of their vocal abilities (speech), it's their tool for battle. A carelessly placed word out of their mouth can turn harmony into chaos, throw mud on a reputation, mislead or misdirect, it can manipulate the hearts …

Be good husbands to your wives. *Be thoroughly good with them. They're so frail even though their tongues are opposite. Their overreaction most times is geared towards the overall benefit, learn to perceive that from behind the scene, and you'll be glad you did.

Honour them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. *It's obvious you're the lion and they're the lambs, respect their lamb-like features. They're aware your ego is on another level. Even when you want to show yourself, 'bros calm down' they're aware you're an overall softie.
Show her off, the original plan and idea was/is to disburse 'pepper' into any 'pepperbody.' hahaha

But in your new life of God's grace, you're equals. Treat your wives, th…

Daughters Of Sarah!...Get In Here!

*Guys, look away... #Yimu. lol

Wives, Future wives, here's a quickie on wifey roles thoughtfully penned down by St. Peter, You'll love. *smiles

={1 Peter 3:1-6}=

Daughters of Sarah,

Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated by your life of holy beauty. *Being more spiritually grounded than him was the original plan and should be reinstated.

What matters is not your outer appearance - the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes - but your inner disposition. *Be spontaneous. You can pull both (inward and outward) stunts off with ease. It's safer that way you know. lol

Cultivate your inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. The holy women of old were beautiful before God that way, and were good loyal wives to their husband. Sarah for instance taking care of Abraham, would address him as "my dear husband.'&#…

Suffer In Silence!

Image
Who hurt you? Who made your insecurity level skyrocket? Who took advantage of your genuineness? Who told you that you'll never amount to nothing? Be content to let God set things right on your behalf!

Are you suffering over an unjust cause? Suffer in silence.

Jesus' life on earth and agonizing journey to the cross is a typical illustration of suffering in silence. Interestingly, Jesus prayed to The Father at every step or move He made all His life. He endured to the end and emerged victorious by conquering death.

-Some examples of the prayer life of Jesus include the following;
1. After His baptism when He was about to commence ministry works.
2. Before choosing his disciples.
3. Before taking any decision.
4. On the mount of transfiguration with Peter, James and John.
5. At the garden of Gethsemane before he was tried to be crucified.
6. At the cross. etc

Ever wondered why the disciples didn't ask to be taught the logic of signs and wonders but to be taught how to pray? …

The Long Distance Runner!

Image
Some run short distances, others; moderate distances, but hey! Bottles up for the long distance runner! He is that runner who perseveres to the end even in the face of adversities.

The long distance runner is one who becomes overwhelmed with the burdensome race filled with thorns and throes, and is tempted to opt out. But God steps in, opens his eyes with an amplified vision of the finish line and renews his strength to enable him continue with the final lap in the quest to actualize destiny.

The long distance runner subscribes to routinary discipline/mortification, but overtime, is rewarded handsomely.

Anchor Scripture: {Hebrew 12:12-13}
"So don't sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it!"

The long distance runner needs human support as well. No man ever lived in isolation, else, his life becomes brut…

DISTRACTION

Image
We all get distracted at some point in our lives. Our area of respective weakness(es) determines the gravity at which this stronghold termed "distraction" dominates our daily affairs.

Those who know me personally can attest to the fact that I'm a great talker, but then, the only time I get talking are moments when I get to see them. Most of the time, I'm deeply engrossed with work, work, work. Therefore, the next time you see me running my mouth in public, please don't judge me, for those moments are my 'gateaway' moments. *reception of fresh air is allowed abeg. lol

The act of distraction can be likened to the act of a little child whose been held behind closed doors all day long and finally obtains exit to go out to play with other friends in the block. Only a disciplined child would know when to wrap it up for the day. But an undisciplined child would even forget that he/she came from another home.

No one can wholly escape distraction, whether conscio…

There is Space In The Manger!

No space in the Inn? he he, look around, there is space in the manger!

There is nothing wrong with starting small, but there is everything wrong with not starting at all. The comfort zone is "artificial."

We live in a society where every one is "rich" and nobody wants to affiliate with the grass root.
In all sincerity, looking good is good business, but never fake it (lie/pretend about it) while trying to make it. There is no sin in thriving. Never be ashamed to hustle. Whatever your hands get to do, do it! For He has promised to Bless the work of our hands.

What are you passionate about? What gets your attention and interest @ a 100%? Start from your level, even at a level which may seem unfair to your status. It may include working as a freelancer or being underpaid in an undesired organization. Here's the heavenly promise: The Lord of the harvest will cause rain to water your field in due season.

Remember Joseph was working in Jail (interpreting classi…

The Natural Man

Image
Never do real stuffs with the natural man, you'll get burnt in the process.

The natural man is said to be foolish, clueless, obstinate, proud, ignorant and most of all, possess the "I know it all" syndrome. The natural man is not open to change and learning new things. Even in his misfit, he believes help comes from within.

Anchor Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:14
"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

For the natural man to transcend into the next phase,  his vision must first be corrected. Ever wondered why natural men never win (spiritual) battles?

Interestingly, every "spiritual man" emanated from the "natural man," but the former, took intentional steps to exempt himself from "the natural man" status.

Characteristics of the natural man:
1. He is in the habit of justifying his carnally minded statut…
