Inspiration || WATCH ME

Watch Me split the sea for you to walk on dry land
Watch Me shut the mouth of lions that surround you
Watch Me calm the raging sea and all your fears disappear
Watch Me break the prison gate for your freedom

If I’ve done for one, I can do for another
If I’ve done some before, I can again do many more
I AM the same forever, I change not
Yesterday, today, tomorrow and till eternity

Watch Me take over your battle and give you victory
Watch Me turn your secret tears to public laughter
Watch Me give you beauty for ashes
Watch Me make you a showpiece

Just like Jacob or Saul, I will give you a new name
Like Jabez or Esther, I am still able to rewrite your story
Is it like Jephthah or Gideon?Β  I can make a great man out of you
I will overturn and overturn until it’s your turn.

Watch Me make a king out of your shepherd boy
Watch Me dethrone king for your enthronement
Watch Me bless you and make you a blessing
Be still and know that I am Lord! Just Watch Me!

Faith || W A I T! – Word for The Month of October

Sometimes last week, the Lord said to me, “Oluwadamilola, I know you feel frustrated, tired and want to give up on everything but before you do that, wait! Wait on Me, I am working! Even if you cannot see it yet, I am up to something, just wait for me, wait patiently.”

Guess what? I cried my eyes out!

See, I know and I just don’t know it by reading it from a book, I have been there a lot of times, I have seen and experienced what it means to wait on the Lord for a particular season to end and a new one to begin.

The scripture tells us in Romans 8:25 that “But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently.”

I agree that the season of waiting is a very tough one, it is not for the faint-hearted, it takes faith to wait, waiting requires patience and patience is a virtue that is developed over time but the good news is waiting can be more beneficial when we wait aright on God while He’s working all things out in our favor at the secret place which of course, we cannot see, and just because we cannot see it with our physical eyes doesn’t mean the Lord isn’t working on our behalf.

Life won’t always be like this, this season will not last forever, trust me, we just need to patiently wait on the Lord. Our waiting is part of the process of becoming what He wants us to be.

I believe our waiting period is a tool in God’s hands and when we get to the fullness of the appointed time, we will see how the period of waiting fitted into His plans for us. Waiting is not wasting, we are only being prepared for what’s to come.

God’s timing is flawless and even though it may not reflect our expectations but we must practice patience and trust His perfect knowledge of the time required for us to get to our next season.

I encourage you to wait and wait aright! Remember, only those who wait enjoy the renewal of strength. (Isaiah 40:31) And it takes faith and patience to inherit the promise. (Hebrews 6:12b)

This month, I pray for you that your strength never fails, you will be patient enough for the Lord to work through your waiting season. You will not throw in the towel before your appointed time of blessing and when your long-awaited season comes, it will be worth the wait. Amen.

Happy New Month Beloveds!
Welcome to October!

Inspiration || You Attract Who You Are

One of my motivating scriptures is Matthew 12:35 and it says “A good man produces good things from his storeroom of good…”

No good man can produce good if he hasn’t first stored up good things. It means there can’t be output if there was no input, and the quality of the input will also determine the quality of the output. While the quality refers to the fruit (result), we must also consider the quality in terms of depth.

You see, what you read, what you hear or who you listen to and the company you keep are all things that shape your thought life!

You are what you think (‘As a man thinks, so is he’Proverbs 23:7) and you attract who you are.

The quality of your life is inferred by all these things, you know, the input shapes the output.

The kind of knowledge that your mind has access to informs your thinking patterns and this, in turn, has a great impact on the kind of result you produce in life because it influences the outcome of the decisions you make.

Who you allow into your life (your association) is as much a big deal as what you allow into your mind. You are defined by the company you keep and the company you keep determines what accompanies you.

You may want to reconsider to purposefully shape the direction of your mind (life) by being deliberate about things that make up who you are because you attract your kind. #Selah!

Faith || You Desire It? Sow The Seed

I watched a friend’s Vlog yesterday and she shared about how she was all out for people who have laid hold on their promises while she awaited hers, and this reminded me of a post I wrote sometimes in 2016 about praying for others, I’m sharing it below.

But before you jump right into the post, I will like to say that whatever you make happen for others, God will equally make happen for you.

Life is a seed and sometimes, we usually feel some seeds are not worth sowing but that’s not true, every seed carries in it fruits and harvest, however, this seed can be in any form, it could be monetary, gifts, service, an act of kindness, words of encouragement, prayers, listening ears, even a smile and while it takes some seeds a short time to produce harvest, it takes some seeds a long time to bring harvest but the good news is, no matter how long your seed takes to produce fruits, harvest is certain and harvest is always bigger than the amount of seed sown. πŸ˜‰

So, to the post first written in 2016…

Over time, I’ve come to understand better the power of praying for others even when you think they don’t deserve your prayers.

It might sound weird but our prayers and personal requests are easily met when we refuse to pray about them and intentionally pray for others instead. It works like fire, I’ve seen and heard of numerous testimonies about it.

There was this revelation I got recently (2016) about going on your knees for others, as you pray for that unlovable person who has never for once shown you love, you begin to grow in love because you can’t even pray for someone except there’s an iota of love within you, even if it’s the love of God, lol!

So, as you pray for that rude and troublesome neighbor, colleague or friend of yours, you grow in love, patience, and kindness.

The essence is that the fruit of the Spirit is grown in us as we stay in the place of prayer for others and once the fruit of Spirit is in place in our lives, the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit will then make a lot of sense and most especially to unbelievers around us.

Mind you, prayer doesn’t only change the ones we are standing in the gap for but the effect of it first begins with us, and that’s one of the major efficacies of prayer, it changes us, it transforms us, and makes us feel better and stronger.

When we allow love and passion for souls to drive us on our knees, more sons and daughters will be raised to God as a result of it!… ‘The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].’ James 5:16bΒ 

So like I’ve always done and heard a friend said she did also, I encourage you to sow into whatever thing you’re trusting God for, whatever you’ve seen Him done in the lives of others that your desire, as I mentioned earlier, seeds could be in any form.

And if you find yourself being weary like I was sometimes ago, you’re not alone but keep at it, as we were encouraged in Ecclesiastes 11:6 to keep on sowing our seed, for we never know which will growβ€”perhaps it all will.

Also, remember, God is forever faithful and the rewards will come if we faint not.

‘So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.’Β Galatians 6:9

Inspiration || Lay Out Your Fleece If You Have To

Even if you have to lay out your fleece
Don’t stop depending on Him
If you have to cry out for help, do so
But never rely on your own understanding
Rather go all the way with God

Your unbelief or burden
Your troubles or struggles
Your desires or dreams
Your today or tomorrow
It’s OK to lay them all at His feet

His love, His grace
His word, His truth
His will, His way
His plan, His purpose
The best place to be is at the center of them all

Yield, obey, and surrender to His commands
There’s great peace in obedience
You just be content in His will
Be confident in His ways, and
Be comfortable with His plans

Knowing that surrendering precedes success
Obedience brings victory
Faith delivers miracles
Expectation births manifestation
The supernatural is not farfetched

Do not be afraid to follow the pillar
Either fire by night or cloud by day
You will be directed and guided aright
God delights in guiding His children
Just act according to His directives.

Faith || Astonishing V I C T O R Y! – Word for The Month of September

All through scriptures, we saw men and women who went through trials and tribulations yet came out as though nothing ever happened to them because the Lord was in it with them.

Troubles, challenges, and trials are part of life’s package and as long as we’re breathing, troubles will surely come even when life is going along perfectly but we have an assurance of God’s grace to see us through, His strength to hold us up and His peace to comfort us in the midst of them all.

God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5b) and contrary to people’s beliefs that God uses trials to punish our sins, never!
Whatever you’re going through is just a test of faith if you’re in right standing with God.

God is too loving and merciful to allow us to be challenged more than we can bear, rather He uses trials and life’s challenges to strengthen us and most times to build our faith in Him. (James 1:2-3)

Looking at the lives of Abraham, Hannah, and Job, we saw how God used their trials to build their faith and granted them astonishing victory.
God is never wrong and everything He does is good!

Whatever trouble life brings your way, be of good cheer for your Saviour has made you an overcomer.

This month, I pray for you that your strength never fails, you will never lose your peace, may your faith never grow weary, may you succeed in every way against all odds or difficulties, and may the Lord give you astonishing victory on every side.

Happy New Month Beloveds 😍

Inspiration || In God’s Pantry

Everything needed is available
His table spread with provisions
He owns all things
We will lack nothing!

According to His divine power
He has freely given us all things
All things in abundance
No good thing will He withhold!

We can drink from His overflow
We can eat and be satisfied
Our soul will be refreshed
Our spirit will be renewed and body rejuvenated!

He’s got more than enough in His storehouse
Inexhaustible resources and supply
He catered for 3million people for 40years and fed more than five thousand people with a boy’s lunch and there were leftovers
What an immeasurably more God!

The earth and it’s fullness belongs to Him
Silver and gold are His
Cattle on a thousand hills He owns
Manna and meat He’s got and so much more in store!

From His pantry, you can take or refill
Simply ask and you will be given
Genuinely seek and you will find
Gently knock, the door will be opened.

Amen!Β

Faith || Expect The Miraculous – Word for The Month of August

All through the scriptures, we saw that every miracle that happened had the hand of God in it. Miracles show us how powerful our God is and they help our faith to yet believe in Him for more.

All of the scriptural miracles were beyond human understanding and this points to the fact that God is the source and custodian of all miracles, God is a miracle-working God, in fact, He is miracle Himself, and He does fearful things that men marvel at.

But the good news is, God still does miracles today and God can still give you a miracle if you have faith to believe and receive it.

Job 5:9 says “We cannot understand the great things he does, and to his miracles, there is no end.”
Miracles abound if only we take time to look. God daily gives miracles, His miraculous deeds are inexhaustible.

If you believe God for the impossible, He will do the impossible, there’s nothing you believe God for that He wouldn’t do above and beyond your expectation. The scripture says God is able to do exceeding, abundantly, far above all you can ever ask or think…Ephesian 3:20

God is more than able to surpass your expectations and when that happens, it’s called the miraculous.

Mind you, The level of your faith is determined by the level of the miraculous you experience. Therefore, you can either believe God for something big or settle for less but If I were you, I will choose the former.

This month, as you believe God for the miraculous, may your expectations never be cut short.
May the Lord give you jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, and crowd gathering miracles.
May each day of the month and beyond bring you miracles.

May the Lord cause men to marvel at the occurrences of miracles that He will do in your life.
May you have catalogs of testimonies as a result of God’s wondrous acts in your life.
Everything that seems impossible around you shall be made possible by the miraculous acts of God in display in your life.

Every crooked path shall become straight, every struggle shall come to an end.
Your life shall show forth God’s glory!
That which no eyes have seen, nor ears heard, nor even conceived by any mind will be the order happening around you all through this month and beyond. Amen!

Welcome to August! πŸ’ƒ
Your month of the MiRaCuLoUs!
Expect an everyday miracle!

Faith || God Cares About Our Struggles Too

I can be a ‘worrier’ sometimes, I know what the scripture says about it but I still find myself being worried about some things I don’t even have control over.

So some days ago, I had to share my worries with my husband and I was expecting him to go all the lovey-dovey like ‘baby, you don’t have to worry, God is in control‘ but he did what didn’t even occur to me, he prayed!

One of the things he prayed about was declaring God’s peace to saturate my heart, he literally placed his hand on my heart and cursed every spirit of apprehension or anxiety. While he was praying, the Holy Spirit brought to my reminder, Philippians 4:6-7 and the scripture made more sense than ever.

This act of love from my beloved husband speaks so much volume to me than the usual hugs and kisses. Thanks, Babe, it’s always been a pleasure doing life with you. (Pardon my muchiness) Lol!

I said all of the above to say that God does care about the struggles in our lives too, and no detail is too insignificant to take to Him in the place of prayer.

Even though some of us try to pity God by feeling He must be busy taking care of the weightier things and we shouldn’t be bothering Him about some trivial issues. Yet, it is dangerous to do everything and forget to do the most important thing – PRAYER!

If you consider anything to be a problem at all or whatsoever you think isn’t even worth thinking about, take it to God in prayer. He is always available to listen and answer, you only need to call. Even if you have control over the issues, taking it to God in prayer is still the right thing to do.

You can pray about EVERYTHING! I mean anything at all and you can be sure of peace, comfort, and answers from God! So, go ahead and talk to God about that issue of concern right where you are and anyhow you feel to express it. 😘

He cares about E V E R Y detail of our lives and He’s willing to be involved and bring us outstanding victory. Amen! Be strengthened! πŸ€—
