Inspiration || Understanding Contentment In Your Calling.

I have often wondered how some people want to do everything. They are not just content in their place of assignment.

I recently worked with someone and I was always upset and at the same time wondering, why does this person want this and that? I mean, you have enough on your table that you’ve not even done justice to.

Look, I am not against people admiring what is good in others and wanting to be that. No! Because the scripture tells us to covet good gifts (1 Corinthians 12:31) and I, also admire and some times covet anything I see that is good and goes in line with my calling.

That’s not the problem, the problem is some of us don’t even know our lanes, so we can’t stay in our places of assignment because we don’t know why we have been called into that office. Now you get my point. Right?

Imagine if King Saul had stayed on his lane ‘jeje’, but he felt because he was the king, he could as well function in the office of the priest when God has not called him there. To make his case worse, he acted in disobedience and not in ignorance. (1 Samuel 13:9-14)

The truth is, you can be anything but you cannot be everything. No doubt, some of us are engraced with more than one gifts and the ability to be anything at a time but don’t stay where God has not called you to, that will be disobedience. Don’t be Jonah!
Don’t do what God has not told you to do. Learn from King Saul!

Yes! It is true that God has called everyone of us to be something for His glory. But be specific in your calling, get clarification from God if you’re not sure.

Recognize that you have not been called to be everything or be like everybody or walk in everybody’s shoes, your calling is specific to you, walking the path of other people is discontentment of purpose.

You are peculiar, so also is your assignment here on earth, understand why you’ve been called into your office, know what you have been called to do and stay on your lane. You will do well if you’re in your place of assignment because that’s where the blessing is. Selah!

Inspiration || Act Fast! Act Now!

God can give same idea to different people, He’s interested in your availability and not ability.

A lot of people are thinking what you’re thinking, you need to be smart and execute every idea God gives you as soon as right now.

Don’t delay any more! Take action now!

Besides, God can not be waiting on or for you, that’s impossible. The psalmist says “I hasten and do not delay keeping your commandments’ (Psalm 119:60)

The matter of a king requires haste you know, but some of us expect God to wait for us, we delay at His instructions and act only when it’s convenient.

Delaying on God’s instruction is to our detriment.

Prompt obedience is key.
Delayed obedience is disobedient.

Act fast! Take action now!

Faith || The Place of Abundance

Hello beloved,

So, I woke up one morning from a dream about change of levels (details kinda private 😉) and then this scripture jumped in my heart even before I thought about the dream.

I read it up and didn’t stop to pray in tongues for several hours all through that day. Don’t mind me, I can be that ‘extra’. Lol!

The scripture is Psalms 66:12 and it says
Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.” (KJV)

The Message Translation says something about God training us first, pushing us to our very limit, passing us like silver through refining fires, and finally brought us to this well-watered place. Glory to God! 🙌

One of the words the Lord gave me for this year was that there’s going to be a SHIFT from where we are to where we ought to be.

But believe me, that won’t come easily because there can’t be a SHIFT without a movement and as we all know, you don’t move an object from one place to another without experiencing some discomfort but God says out of that pain will come gain, from that place of training, you’re arising a STAR! Amen.

I said all of that to say this, where you are is just a temporary place, during the course of the year you might have to experience some discomfort but don’t forget to tell yourself that I AM SHIFTING! God is bringing me into my wealthy place!
Hehehehehehehhehehehe!!!! #Kabaya!

Please note that wealth is not all about money, but an abundance of all things that pertain to life and godliness. Amen!

Did I just preach a message? I think so too. Lol!

Inspiration || The Secret to Success

I heard Bishop David Oyedepo say ‘The Holy Ghost cannot remind you what He has not taught you.” And I found it to be very true.

We cannot be taught unless we attend His class and we can only attend His class majorly by studying (His words, inspired books in areas of interest).

God is not a magician! There are always two sides of a coin.

For every of God’s instruction, there is always the part of God and your own part.

And without any iota of doubt, God will always keep to His part but what about us?

In your chosen field of endeavor, you cannot succeed unless you take time to study and search out what is needed to succeed and that is your part to play.

All men or women of exploit are the ones who give in to studying.

Daniel was a very great man in Babylon, with a very busy schedule (Prime minister of a state) but he still found time to read and did thorough searching and studying.  He said I, Daniel understood by books. (Dan 9:2)

Paul reminded Timothy to bring along his books (2Tim 4:13). Even in prison, he was still building his mind.

You shouldn’t be surprised he wrote most of the New Testament books.

So what excuse do you have?

Seriously, you cannot grow beyond your level of knowledge.

Studying is not only for students or people in academics. Even in that your small business, when was the last time you read a book on business growth and development? In your career, how many self development books have you read?

The ones you bought, have you read them?

There are people who have gone ahead, from whom we can glean from their knowledge, expertise and experience to be the best at our present level.

Like someone said “The quality of a man’s life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.”

It is what you have been taught or what you have read, that you’re reminded of.

No one succeed without paying the sacrifice of putting in some extra time in the place of studying.

If you want to be prosperous and have good success in that your chosen field of endeavor, I think you will do well if you spend some time to study (Joshua 1:8).

I hope you take responsibility for your life. Selah!

Faith || Everyday is the Lord’s Day…REJOICE!

One of the scriptures I say every morning is Psalms 118:24, it says ” This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”

It dawned on me one morning as I was studying and came across that same scripture that, how many mornings have I actually quoted this same scripture and how many times have I really done what it says?

Haven’t I most times allowed the pressure and hustle, bustle of the day squeeze out the joy and gladness each day brings?

Seriously! So I’ve actually been short changing myself all this while? I never knew!

If you have ever been on this table, you can sure relate. Lol!

Anyways, I have repented and I have began to do as the word of God says. Praise God!

The Lord made each day and it should be our goal to rejoice and be glad in it no matter what may come.

So today, irrespective of what the day brings, remember it is made by the Lord and you have a responsibility to rejoice and be glad in it.

Let nothing take that from you. Nothing at all!

May be someone is asking, how can I rejoice when I’m having a bad day?

Well, we were not told by Apostle Paul to rejoice only when things are going well, but to rejoice ALWAYS! (Philippians 4:4)

Yes! Even in the midst of trials and tribulations, also on a bad day. Rejoice ALWAYS!

Good things do happen on a bad day but you wouldn’t know when good things are happening if you don’t have the right attitude. Yes!

Everyday is the Lord’s day. So REJOICE!

Faith || If it is God, it is Good

It can be good and not be God’s will but it can never be God’s will and not be good.

I think you should read that again!

I often say that, sometimes, God doesn’t make sense and so does His will a times. In fact, most times it doesn’t always look like what and how we have imagined it in our minds.

I wish I knew this earlier on in life, I wouldn’t have struggled much and be headstrong with God. Lol! But then He is a loving Father.

See, what looks perfect to you might not be perfect with God. That plan you are trying to execute now, now might not be the right time for it, that person that seem like your chief advisor that never gives one wrong advice might end up being an Ahithophel. (2Sam 17:7)

The scripture says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”Proverbs 3:6 (NLT)

The truth is life doesn’t go the way we expected but God’s plans are perfect. ALWAYS!

No defect! No mistakes! No inconsistency! God is never wrong!

None of us has an idea of what tomorrow holds even the next minute, but there’s someone who knows.

Doesn’t it make sense to follow the steps of the One who knows?

We can make our plans, but the final outcome is in God’s hands. Proverbs 16:1 (TLB)

Hey! Save yourself the heartache, it is far better to follow God’s will.
