Faith Comes by Hearing

My Dearest Sisters,

Happy New week! This week, something phenomenal shall happen to you in Jesus Name. Amen.

I like to start my year charged and equipped by reading the Word and other relevant materials. Ofcourse, this is an all year exercise however I take particular care to do this at the beginning of the year because it puts the year in perspective.

Why is reading the Word so important? it builds your faith. There's no faith outside the Word of God. To please God and reach our destinies, we need faith. That is why any and every atrack we face is an attempt to attack our faith. Once the faith is attacked, destiny is attacked and so is our walk with God.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."- Romans 10:17 KJV
You cannot 'overhear' the Word, it is a continuous thing. The process of faith is like that of a seed. A seed doesn't bring forth fruits the day it is planted, it requires continous watering and pruning for the fruits to come alive. The same applies to faith!
In most cases, faith does not manifest immediately you hear the word. However, the seed has been sown and we must continue 'hearing' for it to have expression.

As we have embarked on the year 2019, I admonish you to take the shield of faith and keep hearing the Word. Read books, listen to messages, study the word and meditate on them...don't be discouraged, if you haven't seen any change yet...your faith is rising. And remember faith does not answer to Time, Time answers to faith. Stay in faith!

Loads of Love,

Your Sis

As They Went

  Dear Beautiful One, I trust that you are well and that this post meets you in great spirits.  Some time ago, I had a task at work that seemed very convoluted. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, but as I started, it became clearer what I needed to do and how I needed to go about it. I have come to  realise  that one of the most significant milestones one could ever deal with is starting and because the enemy knows this, he tries to keep us from starting. Keeps us from starting to obey God or cultivating the right attitude or association.    This and other similar occurrences made me begin meditating on the power of starting.  Often  we are faced with so many undaunted decisions and uncertainties and get conflicted about the aftermath of a decision even before we begin. Frankly, we will never know what lies ahead if we never start.  So  the best way to know what lies ahead is to start. Start from where you are. Clarity comes from doing. My pastor usually buttresses this point


Dear Sisters, I trust God that you and yours are doing well.  Before now, I would b ea t myself up each time a negative thought crosses my mind. This led me to do a lot of meditation on the power of thoughts and how to take charge of them. Of the many things I have now come to understand is that: negative thoughts in themselves are not bad. I know that sounds weird but stay with me, let me explain myself. Allowing these thoughts to remain and control us is where the issue lies.  It reminds me of the analogy of temptation versus sin. It is okay to be tempted, but it is not okay to sin.  When I was meditating on this, I read a devotional that week that reiterated that dwelling on bad thoughts is what causes  believers to fall. For the purpose of context, not all negative thoughts are 'fornication' or 'adultery' related; sometimes, it is not doing the will of the Father. Peter is a good example here when he said Christ would not wash his feet (John 13:8) and when he reprim

Purposefully Marching Forward

  Dear Sisters,  Happy New Month! Welcome to March,  the month  where God is moving us  further  in purpose.   I trust that you and yours are doing well and keeping safe. It ' s so good to be on here.    I was studying the ministry of Elisha recently ,  and  I  took not e  of  his dimension of impact.  What a man! He carried  a  double portion of Elijah ' s anointing ,  and Elijah was not small in any   way.  While Elijah and Elisha were very similar, they were distinct in their  purpose  and those they were sent to,  nothwithstanding  the measure of anointing .    Most of Elijah ' s miracles were inclined to life and death. On the other hand, most of Elisha ' s miracles were restoration  based like  healing  people and nations .   Therefore, it can be said that Elisha was a prophet of grace while Elijah was a prophet of judgment. Elijah gave testimonies  against men's sin and evil, while Elisha's testimonies were inclined for  salvation and preach God ' s m
