The Encouragement You Need

We’re knocking down another month. It’s only a few days to the end of February. Then, it will be March, the last month of the first quarter. Wow! Let’s get kicking! This is the time to review goals again and see what you need to do on a daily basis to achieve them. Even if you have been distracted like me, don’t worry.  Just get back on track. Resume your race. Refocus and keep moving. It’s not over until it’s over. Get going!

Harmattan In The Air?

My feet get dusty, but I can cope with that. Most roads are easier to drive on. At least you can see clearly how deep the potholes are! Harmattan is in the air!

Something else in the air in this season is love! Eros particularly. Some share phileo or agape as well, but the reigning king right now is eros. A lot of planning is going into preparation for tomorrow’s celebrations. In Lagos, it is quite a drama. I have made it a point of duty not to step out of my house on Valentine’s Day because the traffic is horrible.

1 Down, 11 To Go!

This year, our community of believers is taking this year as our fearless year: fearless faith, fearless worship, fearless flourishing and fearlessly launching out into the deep. We intend to be bold and courageous this year, knowing that all of our strength and courage will come from God, but putting our faith in Him and stepping out of our comfort zones. We believe like Joshua and Caleb that regardless of the economy and the environment we live in, we are able to go up and take the land because God is able to deliver it into our hands.

Dry Morsel

I would choose a dry morsel with quietness any day. Someone said it’s the path of least resistance, and I won’t go far that way. Maybe. But I cherish my peace of mind. There’s always a price to pay for anything in this world. Even when it’s free, it just means someone else paid the price. Look at salvation. It comes free to us because Jesus paid the price. He died on the cross in our place. Bore the pain and the shame, so that we didn’t have to.

Anticipation & The Art of Waiting Patiently

This year, I am anticipating that God will do several new things and several good things. Things I have hoped and prayed for before and not seen. Even things that I did not pray for and cannot imagine or anticipate! In view of that, I wait, in anticipation of what He will do. In my anticipation, however, I have to remind myself that God is never in a hurry.

With His system, everything is according to time, such that He is never too early and never too late. Everything is right on time. Recall the Bible says in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3 verse 1: “To everything, there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven…”. Also many times, we see scripture saying: ” when the fullness of time has come” or “at the appointed time”. So while anticipation is good, I must learn to wait on God for His appointed time.

Ready To Roll!

In which direction are you running this year? I want to assume that you will be running and not wait and watch the year swing by? Run if you can. If you can’t, walk. If that is difficult, crawl. Whatever you do, make sure you’re not standing still. That is what my pastor used to say. Keep moving. It is within your movement that the Lord will lead you. There is so much anticipation for good things this year. Every word I’ve heard is positive and progressive. We have got to believe it and run with it, to ensure those words are fulfilled, in our personal lives as well as in the nation.

2020 Is Here!

At the beginning of a new year, there is usually so much anticipation. We expect new things, good things. We anticipate that the year has packaged gifts ready for us and we are just itching to open those boxes to see what we got! It is an exhilarating experience, especially as we move away from a particularly difficult year. It is my prayer that our expectations will not be cut short, but that we will experience and testify the goodness of God in this year 2020.

Peace On Earth!

What a beautiful gift! The gift of peace. And this peace is not like the peace the world offers, which is shortlived at best, and unreliable. This is real peace. The kind that keeps you calm and settled even when facing the worst dilemma. Solid peace. When the Prince of Peace brings you peace, you can relax and enjoy that peace, knowing that He has you covered.

Unto Us A Child Is Born

For Mary and Joseph, their joy was mixed with sorrow. They knew that the child they were being given to raise was not and would not be like other children of His time. He was special. Prophecies were being fulfilled at His birth and the parents each had angelic visitations. Things were definitely not business as usual.
