Life’s Lessons || Lessons Learned In 2019

  1. My situation or circumstance doesn’t change who God is. He is good at every season. The sooner I realized this, the better it was for me.
  2. When God says no, it’s a blessing in disguise, sometimes He’s redirecting our steps to something only Him has the full picture of.
  3. Every season serves a purpose. The present season prepares us for the next, the worse season builds strength, tenacity, and faith in us, it also teaches us lessons that we couldn’t have learned any better.
  4. I learned to know my place in people’s lives and act accordingly.
  5. Know your tribe! Everybody is not for you. The people who are really for you will not be against you.
  6. Sieve every relationship in your life and prune the rest. You go faster when you’re in the right company.
  7. 2019 was a whole lot, but God sustained me. The storm didn’t take me away because I got Jesus in my boat. He speaks peace still!

P.S: 2020, is the year of the Lord, I will chase Him harder and my heart will pant deeper. I will continue to live purposefully, pray fervently, slay beautifully, soar mightily high and I’ll do ‘me’ more, unapologetically.

Cheers to a glorious 2020! πŸ₯‚

Faith || Are You Safe?

Am I safe?
This is the question a lot of us ask when we sense danger but the real question should be am I saved?

Because no danger is more dangerous than living outside Christ.
You cannot be safe if you’re not saved!

The scripture says “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” – John 10:10 (NLT )

The devil is the thief, he steals anything that’s not under the protection of Jesus, he is the destroyer, he destroys any soul that’s not submitted to the Lordship of Jesus, and the killer, he kills anyone who’s got no eternal life. Can you see how dangerous that zone is?

But the good news is that, Jesus, the life-giver, the protector and the savior, who is mighty to save, redeem and deliver is ready to rescue and set free.

No life is worth living outside Christ, such life will be in crisis.
Are you willing to be saved and be free from the devil’s zone?

Say this short prayer:
Lord Jesus, save me, deliver me and set me free from the power of sin and satan, I believe and confess you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen

Congratulations! Welcome to the family of God. I encourage you to find a Bible-believing church around you and attend regularly for your soul to be nourished. πŸ€—

Lifestyle || Merry Christmas

He came to set us all free
We are free, you can be too
He came to give us life
Ever bubbling life till eternity

He came for our redemption
We belong to the Father again
His name saves
His blood washes

He is not just a baby
He is God, Savior of the world
He is not just a man
He is the Word and Life

We live because He came
We have hope for life after
We rejoice at His birth
He is the reason for the season

May you be reminded of the Father’s love
And extend same to others
May the joy and hope that Jesus brings
Remain with you and yours forever, amen.

Merry Christmas Beloveds, πŸŽ„

Lifestyle || 2019 Thankful Note

You know when the Lord said to me that 2019 will be a journey, I thought it was going to be a great ride but mehn! Guys! It wasn’t at all.

If I begin to talk, you will ask me how did I survive all that? And how could one person have gone through all of that? but like I always say, there are lessons in every season. I believe this season came to toughen and thicken me.

And the good thing is, God was alongside in the storm. Several times I cried to the Lord and each time I cried, He always said ‘you will be fine… It’s yielding peaceable fruit of righteousness.’

With all the major losses and disappointments, challenges, and trials, the good news that became bad! I judge Him faithful! (Job 2:10) And in all that has happened, I learned and had a hands-on experience that my situation or circumstance doesn’t change who God is. Yes!

God is good irrespective of what I’m going through, and even if I can’t seem to see what He’s doing in my worse season, the strength to carry through that season He has supplied and that’s a major blessing.

Grateful for all that happened in 2019, for the blessings and the lessons!

For the battle You fought on my behalf and the victory You gave me.

Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness fails not! I proclaim you are a good God!

Thank you, Lord for carrying me through! Amen.Β 

P.S: What lessons are you grateful for in 2019? Kindly drop your comment below.

Inspiration || Faithful Is He Who Promised – Word for The Month of December

Talo dabi, talo dabi, Olorun mi
(Who is like my God)
Talo dabi Olorun mi
(Who is like my God)
To se ileri to mu ileri se
(He who makes a promise and keeps the promise)

As I was praying and asking God for the word for the new mouth, two mornings ago, I woke up with the above song (the Nathaniel Bassey Version with the trumpet).

Sometimes, I don’t know if it is the same for other people but it happens to me and I don’t joke with such things as waking up with scriptures or songs (old or new), they are sometimes, ways by which God speaks clearly to me, that’s by the way!

As I was saying, I woke up with the song and I found myself singing this song for the whole day and even till this moment. In this song is embedded the word for this month of December.

As I was singing and meditating on this song, a lot of scriptures began to flood my heart at the same time.

Look, God’s promises are unfailing, we serve the One who is too faithful to fail! All through scriptures, I am yet to find one person who God made a promise to and He didn’t fulfill. Not one! None at all!

Looking at the life of some patriarchs, we saw that everything God promised them, He fulfilled. Our God doesn’t and cannot lie, the scripture says that by two immutable things in which it was impossible for God to lie. (Hebrews 6:18)

Whatever it is that God has promised you and it seems to be delayed, hold sis! Wait a little more bro! God faithfully keeps His promises! (1Corinthains 1:9a) He is a God of process, He is a God of times and seasons.

The times and seasons may change because God’s ways are not our ways but His words do not change! His promises are yes and amen! For He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful to His word. (Hebrews 10:23)

So this month I pray for you and me that like Abraham, we will not stagger at the promises of God, we will patiently endure and wait to obtain all of His promises to us.

Like the house of Israel, we will testify that not one of all the good promises that the LORD had made to us failed, everything was fulfilled for us.

Above all, the Lord will crown the year with a bountiful harvest for us, that even the hard pathways will overflow with abundance. Amen!

Happy New Month Beloveds,
Welcome to December!

Faith || The Last Minute Miracle

In the nick of time
When time is almost up
He will show up and show out
He will bring in the desired miracle!

He does so, so we’ll know for sure it wasn’t our brilliance or our great plans or even our hard work that brought about the miracle but His outstretched arm!

God is not finished with you
Don’t throw in the towel yet
Don’t wash your net yet
Don’t pack your bags just yet!

He’s coming through for you
Even if it is at the very last minute
Our God is never late
He will be right there on time!

He who oversees the entire world
Still, has the time to miraculously meet your needs
Irrespective of who you are, He is mindful of you
If you do not doubt, miracles will be made manifest.

Inspiration || Redeemed Remade Beautified

Wretched and forsaken
Rejected and forgotten
Messed up and broken
Battered or beaten?

He wouldn’t judge you by your past
He doesn’t describe you by that
He wouldn’t even remember it
He’ll give you a new name

You’ll be found and forgiven
You’ll be redeemed and remade
You’ll be transformed from within out
You’ll be wholly made whole

From the miry clay to the solid rock
From pit to the palace
From grass to grace
He’ll change your story

His love and grace will pursue you
His compassion will chase you down
His goodness and mercy will follow you
You’ll be clothed with His B E A U T Y

Just come as you are! Amen.

Faith || Trusting God’s Ways: Believing God is Good Even When We Don’t Get What We Want

There are things I’ve desperately asked God for this year and I didn’t get them, not because of my lack of faith but for work of patience and trust.

I remember a particular month when all my prayers were just ‘Lord, please give me a miracle!’Β 

But I only got the miracle of learning delayed gratification, a miracle of knowing the goodness of God even when what I wanted wasn’t granted.Β 

Moreover, we can only pray, we cannot tell God when and how He chooses to answer our prayers.

Our walk with God is a walk of faith! And faith breeds patience and hope and strength!

The truth is, I felt very bad, I was disappointed and I grieved but I learnt to accept God’s ways knowing that His ways are designed as much for my good as they are for His glory!

Sometimes, God takes us through the longer route so we can learn to trust Him through the process. He develops us through this process that transforms us, I guess perhaps, I wasn’t ready for that blessing I was asking for so God needed to begin some work in me. Glad I’m yielding!

I said all of that to say this, whatever season you’re going through, learn the lessons the Lord is teaching you, receive it with an open heart. He’s not a wicked God, He knows what’s best for us and even if we throw some tantrums, His sovereignty is not dependent on how we feel anyway, lol!

More importantly, He wants to draw us nearer to Himself, and prepare/develop us for the glory ahead.

Everything God does is strategic! Looking at the life of Joseph, we saw how God took him through all those life’s seasons at His pace, in His time and His ways just to make him a prime minister.

So, with God, the end result is always worth the wait!

God’s timing is flawless, His ways are perfect and His plans are always better than ours! We only need to trust Him!

Be strengthened!

Inspiration || Experiencing The Goodness of God – Word for The Month of November

The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth. (Exodus 34:6)

Please note the word ‘abounding’
It means exceeding, generous, superabundant, it means the goodness of God exists in large amounts…

I wrote about how good God is in my last blog post, you can read it here

This is what the Lord has been impressing on my heart lately and I believe He’s ready to manifest Himself in this area like never before in our lives this month and beyond.

No matter how fast the year might be coming to a close and it seems nothing has worked for you or your goals for the year are yet to be met or look unreachable, I will encourage you to still see the goodness of God in everything that’s happening in your life and around you, know that whatever the Lord does is good, there’s no shadow of turning with Him, every good and perfect gift comes from Him. (James 1:17)

Also, know that the very essence of God is His goodness, it is one of His attributes, and it also describes who He is by nature, God is inherently good! Nothing more, nothing else!

So whatever that’s happening in your life presently doesn’t reduce who God is. But appreciating His seen and unseen goodness in your life will rather make things better. If you look closely, you will see that there is one major thing God has done for you this year if not all and that’s LIFE! He has preserved you, only the living can make plans or set goals. So cheer up and be thankful for the goodness of God you have enjoyed this far!

I pray for you that this month…

May you taste and see the goodness of God
May you encounter the goodness of God afresh
May you experience it more before the year ends
May you express it all the days of your life

May the Lord show you His goodness like never before
May good things never cease in your life and family
May you experience the outstretched arms of the good Lord
May His goodness chase you every day of this month and beyond
May your life prove that, indeed, He is good!
Amen!

Happy New Month Beloveds!πŸ’ƒ

Faith || God Is Good

God is Good…
Our experience doesn’t change who He is
Our situation or life circumstances cannot either
He is God when things are going well and even when they are not
He is, always has been and always will be, Good.

God is good…
When the tornado of life swirls around you
When the storms of life are raging
When the world hurls you like a ship upon the sea
Even in the midst of trials and tribulations.

God is a good God…
Our ability or inability doesn’t change who is He
Goodness is who He is! He cannot be something He isn’t
He remains God in every situation, nothing alters the fact that He is good
In the darkest of nights and the flashes of the morning.

God is God…
His goodness is immeasurable and His thoughts toward us are of good
His heart is kind, His mercy is unfailing and His faithfulness endures forever
He wouldn’t let anything bad happen to us unless something good was going to come out of it
He reveals His glory through the suffering He allows in our lives.

God is good…
Our minds cannot even comprehend the breadth and the depth of His goodness
His goodness is far greater than we can unravel
And even when we cannot understanding why some things happen, we can rest in the assurance that, everything He does is good
No matter what is going on in your life, there will always be a spur to remember the goodness of God.

God is good…
He’s got a purpose for every season and occurrence in our lives
He is too good to lead us astray
He has our life’s journey all well planned out
When we see in His light, we experience His goodness. Amen!
