Keep

Isa.43:13 “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.”

 

There is a huge difference between sustaining a life that God has taken and taking a life that God is sustaining – huge difference! If God wants to take a person’s life, He alone reserves the right to do so. Read the rest of this entry

Look Out!

Prov.4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” [with emphasis]

 

The letter W from the acronym for Solomon’s six winning ways W-I-N-N-E-R is Work with a Purpose. The letter I in W-I-N-N-E-R stands for Insist on Integrity. Prov.10:9 “The man of integrity walks securely; but he who takes crooked paths will be found out” [with emphasis]. Read the rest of this entry

Dignity of Labour

Prov.22:29 (LB) “Do you know a hard-working man?  He shall be successful and stand before kings.” [with emphasis]

 

Everybody wants to be respected, valued and appreciated. No one wants to be treated like trash or disrespected. The sixth reason why God wants us to work is because work gives us respect. Read the rest of this entry

Thick or Thin?

Jn.3:30 “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.”

Physics tells us that how thick or how thin a material is, impacts on its energy transfer rate. Conductivity, Area of Exposure, Hunger and Thickness are the variables that Physics tells us affect the rate of energy transfer. We know that science copied Scripture because these factors are evident in Gehazi’s life. Read the rest of this entry

No Danger

Isa.53:11 He will see and be satisfied  because of his suffering My righteous servant will acquit many people because of what he has learned through suffering…” [GW]

 

I used to tell everyone that asked me, that I wanted to be Pharmacist. I chose the profession at random in my quest to quiet all such questions. Close to my final year in secondary school, I got into trouble and I was suspended from school. During the two weeks of staying at home, I hung out with my neighbor who was a software person and software fascinated me. Just seeing what software could accomplish changed my life.

Common To Man

Gal.6:9 “We must never get tired of doing good because if we don’t give up the struggle we shall get our harvest at the proper time” [JB].

 

The story is told of a man that had to work to support his family when he was seven years old because they were forced out of their home due to legal technicalities. When he was nine years old, still a shy little boy, his mother died. When he as twenty-two, he lost his job as a store clerk. He wanted to go to law school but he did not have the qualification. At twenty-three, he went in debt to become a partner in a small store. Three years after, his business partner died leaving him a huge debt that took years to repay.

Keep Going!

Isa.35:3 “With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands,and encourage those who have weak knees. 4 Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear,for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.”

 

God is thoroughly equipping us to banish, expel, get rid of, and to eradicate the fear of failing from our lives. Do not be casual about this season, there is nothing simple about God’s work in our lives. If we could achieve these things in our strength, God would not have sent us a Helper. The truth is you and I need help so please submit to the Holy Spirit.

A lot of the time, the factors that cause failure are totally out of our control. There are so many things that are out of our control. For Read the rest of this entry

Fact File

Ps.139:16You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed”

 

I am confident that God is going to change your destiny for good, in Jesus Name. It is important for us to understand that our God is a God of automation. When He creates, He sets up systems such that things continue to work and remain productive. Take the earth for example, God has created it in such a way that it sustains itself. He set seasons in place that ensures that there is a consistent circle of life. It was no different when God created man. God equipped man with everything that pertains to man’s fruitfulness and success. Read the rest of this entry

No Limit!

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction” Prov.1:7 [NKJV]

 

Did the person that came first in your class have two heads? Are you familiar with this statement? A lot of us heard it repeatedly when we were growing up, especially relating to academic performance. The statement usually is accompanied with some strokes of the cane. Some people may say that it is a little bit extreme. Well, I do not think so because it drilled into me that no one is better than me. You are as good as you want to be. Where you are today is where you want to be. It is a choice you have made. But the question is, do you want to remain there or will you Read the rest of this entry

Get Better

“A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel” Prov.1:5 [NKJV]

 

Society used to be divided between those who have and those who do not have. But I tell you the truth, going forward, society is going to be divided by those who know and those who do not know. Knowledge is going to be the key decider. Your life only gets better when you get better. You cannot get better if you do not even know where you stand. Everybody wants his or her life to get better but your life can only get better when you get better.
