Pick Your Staff

Exodus 15:9-10 “The enemy boasted, ‘I will chase them and catch up with them. I will plunder them and consume them. I will flash my sword; my powerful hand will destroy them.’ But you blew with your breath, and the sea covered them. They sank like lead in the mighty waters.”


In a particular season, someone very close to me came to my house and asked that I pray with him. When I looked at him, what God said to me was, ‘Say to him to make a deal with Me.’ So, I told him I was not going to pray with him. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Walk

Psalm 17:4-5 “I’m not trying to get my way in the world’s way. I’m trying to get your way, your Word’s way. I’m staying on your trail; I’m putting one foot in front of the other. I’m not giving up.” (MSG)

If you want to be spiritually healthy, there are seven things you need to do to experience metamorphosis in your spiritual life. There are little things that nobody sees that you need to do consistently. The first is, You Must LOVE JESUS Supremely and the second thing is You Must MEET WITH HIM Daily.

Ezekiel 18:31-32 “Clean house. No more rebellions, please. Get a new heart! Get a new spirit! Why would you choose to die, Israel? I take no pleasure in anyone’s death. Decree of God, the Master. “Make a clean break! Live!” (MSG)

Remember the starting point for Jacob was Genesis 28:11-15When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, Read the rest of this entry

The Walk

Isaiah 60:19-20 “No longer will you need the sun or moon to give you light, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting light, and he will be your glory. Your sun shall never set; the moon shall not go down—for the Lord will be your everlasting light; your days of mourning all will end.” (LB)

Genesis 32:31The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, and he was limping because of his hip.” (NIV). “The sun rose above him…”, this is so huge! God dislocated Jacob’s hip and he limped for the rest of his life. Jacob was given a reminder for the rest of his life so he will never forget Who is in charge. Read the rest of this entry

The Turnaround

Isaiah 62:2-4 “And you will be given a new name by the Lord’s own mouth. The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight”…”

What is your name? The original meaning of Jacob is deceiver, manipulator, supplanter, schemer, trickster, and swindler. If you are asked right now for your name, what would you say? If you were to be named by your greatest weakness, your greatest flaw what would be your name? Read the rest of this entry

Commit & Confess

Psalm 139:23-24 “Explore me, O God, and know the real me. Dig deeply and discover who I am. Put me to the test and watch how I handle the strain. Examine me to see if there is an evil bone in me, and guide me down Your path forever.” (Voice).

Jacob got to that place in the crisis phase when he chose to stop running. Jacob got to the point where he realized that his conflict was with God and not with Esau. And he responded by committing to wrestle with God until he can walk in the blessing. God is checking, Read the rest of this entry

The Objective

Isaiah 62:7 “Tirelessly pester God—give Him no rest—until He re-establishes Jerusalem and makes it worthy of praise throughout the whole world.” (Voice)

The first phase Jacob experienced before he could walk in the blessing was the Crisis Phase. As it is said, God whispers in our pleasures, but He shouts in our pain. Pain helps us hear God shouting. Sometimes, God uses conflict, trauma, or pain to get our attention. Read the rest of this entry

In Faith

1 John 5:4-5 “You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. So who are the world conquerors, defeating its power? Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.” (TPT)

Right People

2 Corinthians 6:14 “Don’t develop partnerships with those who are not followers of Jesus’ teachings. For what real connection can exist between righteousness and rebellion? How can light participate in darkness? (Voice)

Over the past few days, we looked at the reasons why we need to be a part of a community, why we need to join a team, and why we need to be part of a team. However, in choosing a team or in joining a team, there are a couple of things we should look out for. Read the rest of this entry

His Praise

Ps.104:31 “May the glory of the Lord continue forever! The Lord takes pleasure in all he has made!”

What price are you willing to pay so that you can live like few will? One of my colleagues said, ‘Your neck is growing thinner and thinner, what is going on?’ I said, ‘We are fasting’ and the look on her face was, is it not the same fast all of us are doing? The key thing is, the price you are willing to embrace, the sacrifice you are willing to embrace is what will separate you from the pack. God is taking you on an uncommon path because of the uncommon dream that He has for you. You have to embrace your path; you have to embrace your own story. It is not according to the books, but it is your story, and it is for God’s glory.

God’s dream for you is a good dream and it is a journey of uncommon paths. And on this journey, we encounter things like the prison and other things that we perceive as torment. But could it be that God wants to use the things that torment us to mentor us? Read the rest of this entry
