Dear Sisters,

The much anticipated 2020 is here! Happy New Year family. I trust that you had a wonderful and love-filled holiday. I did. This year I pray that you shall work in abundance, you shall move in the speed of the holy ghost, and you shall be profusely favoured.

At the start of the year, I said to myself “I will read a lot of familiar Bible stories again and again”. This resolution was borne out of the revelations I caught in December when I did a study of the book of Luke, I realised there were lots of things I assumed how it occurred. Assumptions from bible school days and fellowships. Unfortunately, these assumptions aren’t how some of these bible accounts happened. They have been paraphrased so much that the accuracy of scriptures has been lost. That is why it is essential not to get too familiar with the things of the Spirit and ensure that what we know of God is what is contained in the scriptures. We must find and know God for ourselves.

Another reason why we cannot afford to take the things of the spirit for granted this year is that our victory lies in our accurate and robust evidence. A case is not won by bringing weak and false testimony, a case is won when the right pieces of evidence are presented. Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 41:21 says “Explain your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your foundations, saith the King of Jacob.” These bible accounts are our foundations and must be accurately understood to live a life of victory.

Over and over, I have heard Bishop Oyedepo say that the bible is the oldest book with the most current news. Upon re-reading some bible accounts, I found wisdom that is so relevant to our present times. Unfortunately, we sometimes miss out on this wisdom because we think we know all bible accounts.

So, sis, I want to admonish you this year not to take the things of the spirit for granted. Let us be open-minded to receive the things of the spirit, to re-read what we don’t know or what we thought we knew. Not to assume things instead go to the word ascertain the truth for yourself. The bible talks about the Berean Christians in Acts 17:11 “And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.”

Blessings on you & yours, in Jesus Name.

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
