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. 😉

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 5:16b 

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 grow—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.’ Galatians 6:9

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 😍
Welcome to your month of Astonishing V I C T O R Y! 💃

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! 💃
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! 🤗

Faith || H O P E – Word for The Month of July

And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:5 (NLT)

The word ‘HOPE’ means to trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future.

Abraham was a man who showed us what it means to hope and have faith in the promises of God until they manifest. The scripture says he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. (See Romans 4:20)

God has promised that those who wait for/on him will not be disappointed and He is able to bring about the realization of one’s hopes. So, we have an assurance of His unfailing, reliable, dependable words!

I don’t know that particular thing which you are or you’ve been trusting and believing God for and it seems not coming forth, I’m here to encourage you to wait on God hopefully, expectantly, patiently, believing in your heart that He who has promised is faithful.

 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV)

Like Abraham, believe in hope against hope because hope will not disappoint.

So this month, I pray for you that
You will not lose hope in that which God has promised you,
You will not waver at His promises,
Your faith will remain strong, it will not fail,
You will abound in hope and be filled with all joy and peace in believing
You will rejoice in hope and your heart will be filled with God’s love
And that you will see the manifestation of that which you have hoped for in Jesus name, Amen.

Happy New Month Beloveds!
Welcome to Joyous July!
I am so excited about this month!

Yes! We Believe! We Rejoice! We Keep Hope Alive!

Faith || Go for ‘D E Z Z A’!

I wrote part of this writeup a year ago but I suddenly started having this nudge in my spirit to repost it here, so I decided to add more flesh to it. I’m sure it will bless you and be a timely message for someone, I feel that so strong in my spirit. Keep reading and be blessed…😘

My husband and his siblings usually refer to anything original or good stuff as ‘dezza’ from the word ‘designer’. Lol! I don’t know how that came to be or the story behind it, I’ve not asked anyway, but what I know is that my eldest brother in-l(aw)ove has always been known to love anything ‘dezza‘. Oh yeah!😁

We all know anything from him can’t be short of good quality and value. He is one very fine and stylish pastor who doesn’t in any way go for nothing but the very best. No matter the price, he would rather wait than have anything short of quality.

I shared the above story to say that, God has not in any way called us to settle for less. He’s got the very best in store for us.

Often times, we allow pressure and other people’s opinion blind us from seeing our real worth, forgetting we have been bought with a very huge price which is the blood of Jesus.

You are priceless! Your worth is far above rubies! Don’t allow the devil to tell you otherwise, God’s plans for you aren’t secondhand, His purpose for you isn’t of less importance.

God’s plans and purpose for you are chassis and so does the gifts He has in store for you. They are custom-made for you alone. They are specific to you, they are nothing short of the very best. Do not allow anything to move you away from the essence of what God made you… A king! (See Genesis 1:28 )

When you understand the importance of your uniqueness and the value God has placed on you, you will not in any way settle for less either in marriage, career or whatsoever.

The scripture says “Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect.” {James 1:17a (TPT)}
Every gift God gives is first good and then perfect, no defect! No blemish! Anything perfect can’t be secondhand or used now! Abi?

So why do you want to settle for less in that relationship because you feel your marriage clock is ticking? Why do you want to stay on that job when it’s not adding any value or growth to you in any way? Why do you think you don’t deserve the good, perfect and chassis gift?

Over time, I realized it is a lack of faith in God that makes us settle or want to settle for less in any way and I think it is ungodly and unwise to feel or think God is not capable of taking care of you or you’re not worth receiving the very best gift from God.  If we trust God enough to sort us out in our life’s journey, we will begin to build our faith and patiently wait for Him to bring us the best at every phase.

If God is interested in the grass of the field, the birds of the air, how much more you that He made to be the head of all His creations? He definitely has your best interest at heart.

So, go for ‘D E Z Z A’!
God’s got the best in store for you!
Don’t settle for less!
Only wait on Him!

Faith || Double for Your Trouble – Word for The Month of June

As I was praying for the word for the month of June, I heard in my spirit Double for Your Trouble. I decided to read it up in different versions as my custom is for better understanding and I settled with the NLT version…

Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. Isaiah 61:7

I’ve not stopped praying with this word ever since I heard it in my spirit but I guess God wanted to start the manifestation of this particular promise with me…

The month of May was a very tough month for me, I experienced a major disappointment that I felt all hopes have been lost but you know what? At the very nick of time (the last day of May), God came through so big! He gave me more than double for my trouble. He did the above and beyond and made things even way better than I expected before.

I believe God is sending this word to encourage you and give you hope for the month, and you know what? God is ever faithful to His Word! I have witnessed it! I have experienced it…The goodness and faithfulness of God!

So, whatever difficulties you’re going through at the moment, or however, it looks like the year isn’t getting any better, let this word bring you encouragement and hope, for there will be a fulfillment of that which has been spoken by the Lord.

And for everything that has caused you to cry, be sorrowful, be sad, be ashamed, may you experience double honor instead, for every disappointment and set back, may the Lord render to you double for your trouble. Amen!

Welcome to June!
Your Month of Double and More!

Keep Flourishing!


PS: I am starting a 10book (or more) in 30days challenge for this month of June. This is exactly 1 book every 3days and I will endeavor to stick with this plan no matter how tight or busy my schedule is. Wish me well. Lol!

Faith || Ruth – Her Story and The Lessons

Written By Adeola & Damilola

Scriptures: Ruth 1- 4

The book of Ruth is one of great significance and such a charming tale of emptiness to abundance, of lost, love and redemption that we can learn so many lessons from.

It’s a book that gives us the full picture about the seasons of life and how God can rewrite our stories if we give Him the pieces of our lives and let Him make something beautiful out of it.

The Story

Ruth, a woman who after being widowed remains with her husband’s mother who entreated her to go back to her own people but she refused and followed her back to Bethlehem, the city where her late husband and parents in – law left for Moab because of famine.

These two women arrived just in time for the early spring harvest and Ruth immediately got a job in the fields of a wealthy man to support her and her mother-in-law. While working in the fields, she got noticed by her boss, Boaz, who happened to be a kinsman to the family of her late father-in-law. One thing led to another and Nomi became Boaz’s wife by law. Her name coincidentally means FRIEND in Hebrew.

The Lessons

No Matter Who You Are, God Is interested In You

Ruth was a Moabite (an unbeliever) and not a Jew (a believer) but she believed in the living God because her mother-in-law shone her light for her to see. (Matthew 5:16) We have been called to be beacons of light and hope to others, men should see our good light and come to the knowledge of Christ as a result. And this points to the truth that God is concerned about all people regardless of race, nationality, or status. He is the God of all. Irrespective of who you are, where you’re from or what you’ve done? God is interested in you. He does not discriminate, and He loves all people just the same. Although she was seen as unequal among the Bethlehem women, God saw her as equal with them. God is interested in you no matter how men see you. When people see your past and judge your present, God sees your future and shows interest in you.

You Are Important to God and He Has a Plan for You

Some saw Ruth as an unimportant person because she was from Moab, which was a nation that originated from an abominable encounter between Lot and one of his daughters. There is no such thing as an unimportant or void person in God’s eyes, His plan typically involves using people who are considered to be underdogs or unimportant or unimpressive from man’s perspective (1 Corinthians 1:27) because He wants to prove a point, as God’s foolishness is wiser than man’s wisdom. (1Corinthians 1:25) Even though she was from a foreign land, God had a plan for her life, the plan to be a part of the lineage of Jesus (as the grandmother to King David). God has a unique purpose for all His children. (Jeremiah 29:11) Irrespective of where you’re from, Gods plan for your life surpasses your origin.

Every Occurrence in Your Life Is a Tool for God

What an amazing plan God has for a series of “little” things that all added up to important pieces in God’s big plan. He uses “little” things to accomplish great plans. God by Himself arranged and orchestrated the plan He had for this termed ‘foreign’ woman. He intended for Ruth to be a part of the story of the lineage of Jesus. So, He pulled together events such as the famine, Naomi’s relocation to Moab, death of husband, their return to Bethlehem, Boaz’ field, and many other events just to ensure that Ruth could be a part of His plan. And God does that same thing in our lives today! Every occurrence in your life is a tool God is using to take you through where He has prepared for you.

No Matter How Far You’ve Gone, You Can Be Redeemed

She was redeemed by Boaz from shame and reproach, from lack and want, from poverty and loneliness, in the same vein God has a Redeemer in place who can rescue us from the devastation of our own sin and past.
No matter how far you’ve gone, God has a plan for your salvation. He has a Redeemer for your life, too, and His name is Jesus. Boaz was a type (prophetic symbol) of Christ and His redemptive work in our lives today.

The truth is, we are all desolate as a result of our sinful natures. We are empty, just as Naomi was empty and devastated after she had lost everything and returned to Judah. Our sin has rendered us empty and desolate spiritually. But Jesus, our Savior has redeemed us from the law of sin. We’ve been set free even before we recognized it. But our acceptance is key. You don’t accept what you do not know until you accept and confess and believe Jesus as your Lord and savior, your redemption from the snare of sin is not certain. (Romans 10:10)

God is calling you to beautify your life, to give you a fresh start and bring to past His eternal plan and purpose for your life as He did with Ruth.

Wouldn’t you rather accept His invite?

Inspiration || S T A N D! – Word for The Month of May

Happy New Month Beloved!

We bless God for the grace to witness another new month, it’s the fifth month of the year and I just want to encourage some of us that feel the year is quite running ahead of us and it looks like we’ve not even started the year yet, nothing seems to be working yet even when we’ve done all we know how to do.

The Bible encourages us in the book of 1Corinthinas 15:58 to be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. A steadfast person knows what he believes and cannot be swayed by life’s pressure or even yield to it.

But sometimes in life when you have done all you know how to and all you can, then the only thing you still have to do is STAND! Just Stand! Be immovable! Be steadfast! Stand!

Look, it’s ok if you haven’t reached your goal yet, don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed with how far you still have to go and how the year is fast moving. Enjoy the race instead of thinking about the finish line, don’t just seek the end, live out the process to the end and with every step you are surely getting closer.

Keep your focus on one step at a time. Be thankful for how far you have come, though your beginning may be small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly (Job 8:7) and remember that, better is the end of a thing than its beginning. (Ecclesiastes 7:8)

However, this is not also the time to relent or give up, there are still more lands to conquer and your tenacity, persistence, and endurance are major factors needed, don’t let down your guards yet. Keep at it! Keep going and you will get there!

Have a Marvellous May

Faith || The Beauty of Easter

My favourite part of the story of Easter is the part of the hope that Jesus brought us, which I believe is the ultimate part.

You know, when the first man fell, all hope was lost, that man couldn’t anymore enjoy that cordial relationship and intimacy he once shared with God at the cool of the day.
I can imagine how bad God must have felt, I said so because I believe one of the reasons God created man is for fellowship and the fellowship was cut short due to man’s ignorance.

You see, God is such an amazing God! He wanted, by all means, to redeem man back to the position the devil took from him.
As a loving father who knew how much man has messed up and how by ignorance man sold his position to the devil, He, in His loving kindness made an alternative for man to be redeemed back into his lost place by sending His ONLY begotten son to die for mankind.


But the gory part of the story is that someone bled for the sin He never committed, an innocent person was crucified and sentenced to death on what He never did but He did it for love, He did it just for you and me. (Romans 5:8) He went through all that humiliation, agony and pain so we can regain our access to the Father, to give us dominion over the devil who cheated us in the beginning, to give us a good life, life beyond here, life everlasting.

He willingly went to the cross to pay the ultimate price and then to the grave, to finish the battle, He took the keys of death from the devil and won victoriously! In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. (Colossians 2:15) Death is now swallowed up in victory! Glory to God!

Heheheheheheh! O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:55, 57)

Our Saviour couldn’t be held by death! He conquered and gave us full access at last. We can now boldly enter into the fullness of who we were made to be from the beginning of time.

The beauty of Easter is the victory that Jesus, the son of God brought us. It is the resurrection power that symbolizes the eternal life granted to everyone who believes.

What a great joy! What a beautiful story!
Christ is risen and so are we!
Risen to new life!
Risen to receive Power and Wealth and Wisdom and Strength and Honor and Glory and Praise! Hallelujah!

It’s worth celebrating!
Happy Easter Celebration!
Keep Flourishing!
