  • The interesting thing about your temptation.😁🤔

    One fundamental aspect of our faith in God as believers is that we get to be tempted. Even in the secular, nobody gets to be promoted until they sit to be tested or examined.

    It may not be palatable sometimes to consider that the good God would sit pretty and allow some temptations that kick our lives up and sometimes rip us in half come to us.

    First what are the characteristics of our temptation? I Corin 10:13

    1. It is common to man.

    There is nothing new under heaven, there are no temptations that are strange enough not to have been experienced by one or the other person ever before. We all get to be tempted, howbeit, in different ways, shades and types.

    2. The faithfulness of God in the midst of our temptation.

    This is the most interesting thing about our temptations. The faithfulness of God is foundational and a constant factor in the face of our temptations. So I can walk into a season of temptation, as uncertain and cloudy as it may seem, or as goofy as my circumstance could portend, I can walk tall through it knowing that there is the almighty God whose faithfulness is also about to be proven.

    The reason to be fearless is that you are not the only one trying to stick to God through that temptation, God is doing everything to help you see how faithful He is.

    So on the day that Potiphar’s wife got tired of trying to conceal her lustful thoughts towards Joseph ; when she walked up to strip him of his robe of purity, God desperately wanted Joseph to see that He is faithful.

    On the day the devil led Jesus up the pinnacle to be tempted, God’s faithfulness was also at stake and God will demonstrate the aspect of his character: FAITHFULNESS.

    Just a little digression, I checked the Merrian Webster’s dictionary to see what it says about the meaning of faithful;

    “Full of faith. Steadfast in affection or allegiance, Loyal, firm in adherence or promise or observance of duty. Faithful implies unswerving adherence to a person or thing or to the oath or promise by which a tie was contracted. The Bible says that God is faithful.

    1 Corin 1:8-9

    Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ out Lord.”

    Knowing that God is faithful, you can find rest amid your temptations, whether they come as a medical report that throws you into depression, a season of waiting for a breakthrough, an unexpected incident or an event that unsteadies your confidence, you must never forget that the anchor is the same: the faithfulness of Yahweh.

    1 Peter 5:7-10

    “Casting all your care upon him: for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same affliction are accomplished in your brethren who are in the world.

    But the God of all grace, whom hath called you unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.”

    At the end of that temptation, God’s faithfulness will lead you to perfection, to be established, strengthened, and to an indescribable rest. Wawuuuuu😳😱

    Joseph at the end learned to be a man of integrity even before the king of Egypt.

    He had leant prudence even when no eyes were prying into his business. He led Egypt through the 7years of strait and abundance.

    Our Lord Jesus at the end of his temptation was empowered by Heavens angel who ministered to Him. He could go through the Cross, God was faithful till the end.

    Bank on God’s faithfulness. Whatever the temptations you are faced with. Faithful is He who has promised, He is faithful to bring it to the finish line.



  • This is WAR!

    The Lord of the heaven’s army…

    God attends our battles when we invite him and give Him his place of authority. The Lord is a big fighter, He is so concerned about His own and He ensures to show up in our fights.

    Isn’t that such a good relief?

    Battles, some of us do not like them. We want to wish it away from our lives and our experiences but, here on earth, is a battle. Luckily for believers, we are not fighting from defeat, we are fighting from victory, isn’t this also a relief?

    The King of Aram once sent his men to Dothan to go capture Elisha because God had revealed his strategies to Elisha the Prophet. But before his men got there, God sent a host to mount the entire place to protect His own. Oga like fight sha. This Boss should be loved.

    So when the servant of the prophet went out in the morning and saw the men who came to attack them, his heart sank and he was afraid. But Elisha knew God had showed up

    2 kings 6:16-17

    Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”


    And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

    Also, David was once attacked by the Philistines, and the Lord again gave a strategy that worked. The man of war said specific things…(2Samuel 5:22-25)

    And the Philistines came up yet again and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim. 23 And when David inquired of the Lord, he said, “You shall not go up; go around to their rear, and come against them opposite the balsam trees. 24 And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then rouse yourself, for then the Lord has gone out before you to strike down the army of the Philistines.” 25 And David did as the Lord commanded him, and struck down the Philistines from Geba to Gezer.

    God fights wars and He beckons on us to join him all the time. Remember, we are not fighting from the place of failure, we are fighting from victory.

    Paul speaking to his son Timothy said to him

    1 Timothy 1:18

    “This charge i commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.”

    Are there things that God has said about you, are there dreams that are proving too difficult to attain, sometimes we must learn to engage in some spiritual battles to get them to come to fruition.

    In prayer, by insisting on what you want to see in your life, by preparation, by being consistent; this is how we fight and win.

    God attends our wars and He ensures we have victory, why not invite Him today?


  • Don’t settle for a COUNTERFEIT, God still has a promise for you!


    Waiting and praying for one thing for a long time could make the heart weary with worry.

    One of the prophecies that ushered us into the new year says, “the amount of Christians that 2023 admitted would reduce through the year because of what will come upon the nations and on people. The faith of some will fail” The realities are widespread and we all have to look up.

    It’s so easy to craft your path when you do not understand the path God is leading you on.

    This was Abraham who had waited for a promise from God. Just that one thing He knew God could give him. That one thing he desperately wanted to get. The voice that asked him to leave his parent’s home could be trusted, so he thought, but time was passing and nothing was happening. Sometimes LATER, Abraham told God what would happen next;

    Gen 15:1-5NLT

    15 Sometime later, the Lord spoke to Abram in a vision and said to him, “Do not be afraid, Abram, for I will protect you, and your reward will be great.”

    2 But Abram replied, “O Sovereign Lord, what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since you’ve given me no children, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. 3 You have given me no descendants of my own, so one of my servants will be my heir.”

    4 Then the Lord said to him, “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” 5 Then the Lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!”

    Now, what are the Eliezer of Damascus you are putting before God? What is that thing that you know God would not want you to do because you know what God said about it in His word or the things you have gone ahead to table before God, and you got an emphatic NO!

    Do you feel disappointed in God? The elections seem to have failed, the husband/ wife you want is nowhere to be found, the child you desperately want is delaying, your relocation plans botched- you were not granted a visa, and the sense of direction you have been praying for is hanging between heaven and earth…so you have convinced yourself that you are not particularly angry with God but, you want to do your things going forward!

    Maybe God never planned for me to have a child(whatever breakthrough) let me just settle after all, Eliezer of Damascus is a loyal servant, and he will be my heir.

    INSISTING on what God has said or what you know you want that is by God’s will is king. DO NOT SETTLE!

    God said, “I HAVE GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GODLINESS through your knowledge of Christ.”

    Look for what God has said, put it before you daily, and put it in your mouth, mind, and meditations. Stay there! INSIST ON IT.

    I pray for you, Eliezer of Damascus shall not be your heir, God will show up great and big for you!


  • EL ROI.

    If there is one revelation of God that no one can take away from Hagar, it is the appellation, El-Roi; the One who sees me.

    No doubt, the dungeon the current economy has plunged us all and there seems to be nothing to be desired but there is One who sees, shows up and intervenes when we are at our lowest ebb.

    You would think God’s love and care were reserved for Abraham, Sarah and Isaac more than he cared about Hagar, but that is not true.

    She was in the most critical season of her life, the kind that makes a mother forsake her sucking child and abandon hope.

    There was nowhere to go. It was such a hostile clime for a woman with a child to be found in desperation. She could no longer bear the pain and consequences of a decision that didn’t originate from her. She was a content slave until Sarah spoke to her and convinced her to go lie with her lord.

    Slaves in those times could not own their choices, so she obliged without putting in a word of objection. Where did that bring her? She discovered a part of herself that was too difficult to obey. She has a child and a will. Sarah was bent on making Hagar obey but Hagar would rather show herself the door.

    Away from her master, shelter, food and water, her determined heart won’t stop until it led her to oblivion.

    Knowing her death was inevitable, she began to cry.
    Nothing makes us cry like hopelessness. If you have ever borne the brunt of it and ever had God to the rescue, you will remember that God is wont to showing up to give direction in directionless seasons.

    God appeared to Hagar. God loves to go to places to surprise those He loves. No matter what you are going through, I pray He shows up for you so you can have a lasting memory of Him as El-roi.

    He sees and knows and He shows up well and big.

    When we have prayed for our nation and there seems to be no money still to spend, do not change your confessions because of what you can see around you.

    The things that are seen are temporal and the unseen things are eternal.

    God sees, He knows and He shows up big.



    You just know you have welcomed a new season of spiritual agitation, you have looked at your situation from all perspectives, it’s no more business as usual.

    The unrest in your heart and spirit bears witness to the fact that God has called your name to something higher, but you are contemplating and you are not sure it’s you.

    You have tried to name it, but there is no name coming from any where. Based on what you can see around you, you know you are created for more than where you are currently.

    There is unease. There is a beckoning for more of God. There is a sense of dissatisfaction with where you are currently. You have lingered in this space and there is no one who seemed to understand your plight.

    Something tells you God wants more but you don’t know in what direction to oblige Him.

    Your heart is stirred, but it cannot be assuaged, there is a hunger and a thirst, but you don’t know if it is enough to purchase your next spiritual experience.

    Gideon was in this kind of a place for a long time. He was in a hideout, hiding from a people who could be a piece of bread to the Israelites. Yes, it was Israel’s evil that gave them out, yet, Gideon sensed a stirring for more. He could only forge those stirrings into questions that no one knew were unanswered, but they lodged in his heart day in day out. (Judges 6)

    Sometimes, you are in a place where both you and those around you cannot accurately define, all you need is an “angelic visitation’’

    Now, I do not mean ‘angelic visitation’ in the literal sense, what I mean is that supernatural intervention and interpretation of what God is about to do, and hence, He has introduced into your life that high level of spiritual agitation to get your attention and get you seeking like a holy seeker and to get you questioning too.

    As soon as the angel that was sent to Gideon appeared, the questions he began to ask gave him away;

    Judes 6: 13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

    Based on what I know, I am made for more, I shouldn’t be in this place physically, financially, emotionally, spiritually. Don’t waste this experience my friend. Don’t allow this season go to rest without it achieving what God sent it to achieve. Stand and go ask God those questions.

    In some situations, the angel comes to you, but in others you plan your visit to God, after all, He was the One who said in scriptures, ‘’come let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18)

    “I love those who love me, and those who diligently seek me will find me. (Proverbs 8:17)

    Are you looking for God, are you in a bad place, design your itinerary in such a way that allows you meet with God and ask Him questions, this is how to survive in 2023.



    It’s a new year and I wish you a happy one, better than you have ever experienced.

    Each year that God allows us to experience is pregnant with great possibilities, great potentials, matched with an almost equal measure of obstacles carefully positioned to bring us to God’s expected end, but we must go in the year with eyes that see correctly and ears that hear accurately.

    The Bible is repleted with examples of people who rose or fell on the account of what they saw.

    Eve saw that the tree was good for food and able to make one wise and that singular decision, solely based on sight, plunged humanity into the den of sin and death.

    For Abraham, God had to show him the stars and others planetary bodies that were innumerable to explain the vastness of blessings that were his.

    The spies who went to spy the land saw giants and were like grasshoppers in their own eyes before they were so in the eyes of the giants, if they ever were so.

    God asked Jeremiah, what do you see?

    As you approach this new year, there are many realities staring you in the face; the election, the economic postulations and forecast, the pervasions in the world that are spreading in limps and bounds – in the midst of all these, you can lift up your eyes and decide what you see.

    What you see affect your heart and what affect your heart will seek to dictate the direction of your life. Yes!

    So, what do you see!

    Like Abraham, allow God to dictate your perspective. See only the things that God wants you to see and then, you will have one of your best years yet.


  • Take your doubts to God, leave it there and DANCE!

    God does not only respond to faith. He responds to doubts too.

    So every now and then, when doubts come knocking and kicking you down, take them to God as well.

    If He returned to clear the doubts in the heart of doubting Thomas, He cares enough to come for yours as well.

    Don’t you think so? So take your doubts too to God and just dance.
