It’s all about winning

You’d better be on top of your game because the world is not going to accept a sorry for your failure.

“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.”

Talking to God as a friend– use every word

In my last post, I stated that God is not a mysterious person and that He is approachable.

Today, I am saying that when you talk to God, say every word that you can.

First, I have to explain that God often comes to our level of understanding to give or explain things to us. He does this for clarity purposes– so that we’re not in the dark or confused.

So, when you approach God, you mustn’t try to be “Mister Right”. “Mister Right” don’t get anything from God.

Say what’s on your mind. Voice your concerns. Don’t reserve or mince your words. Remember, the bible says “make your requests known unto God.”

Ephesians 6:18 says “…..with every prayer”, and prayer is talking to God. So, we can say that — with all talking to God.

Therefore, when you talk to God, say what’s on your mind just the way it is. Say everything and don’t reserve.

He’s your friend and also your heavenly Father. So, be free to say it all.
He hears everything.

The Blessings 3.0

Psalm 23:

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”

The Lord is capable of taking care of my needs. He is the Shepherd, and I am the sheep. He will take care of (me) His sheep.

“He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.”

The Lord has the best intentions. He put me in the right, perfect place. I have the Right Placement.

“He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

I am at rest. There is Peace because God is in control.

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.”

I know I might have troubles, and there might be problems all around, but I am confident that God will not leave me nor abandon me.

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.”

Do I need to worry about what other people think about me or my status?

I’d rather quake for lack of God’s presence in my life than the presence of a man with contempt.

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.”

God’s blessings come to me naturally every day of my life. His blessings follow me.

Yes, it follows me.

Amen!

The Blessings 2.0

“So you shall serve the LORD your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take away sickness from among you. No woman in your land will miscarry or be barren; I will fulfill the number of your days.…

Most of God’s promises required obedience for fulfillment.

The Blessings

Although man likes to cut corners, God always has the best intentions.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

“In his kindness, God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.”

Troubles do not last, but God’s promises of Restoration, Support, Strength, and Right Placement is assured.

Be blessed!

Welcome, 2021! Help is on the way

Happy new year!

Last year was, perhaps, most challenging for all of us, but a new year is here, and help is on the way.

Yes, God will help us in 2021.

Look up and see. Sure, your help is from God.
Your best prayer might be, God, please help me through 2021, and He will.

Usually, you do not ask for assistance when you have the capability and capacity to handle any issue, but when you cannot, asking for a hand is the way out.

We often rely on others for help, but they fail not because they are wicked. They fail because, most times, they do not have the means to render assistance.

Below is an example of a woman asking the king for help during a famine in Israel.

…So there was a great famine in Samaria. Indeed, they besieged the city so long that a donkey’s head sold for eighty shekels of silver, and a quarter cab of dove’s dung sold for five shekels of silver. 26 As the king of Israel was passing by on the wall, a woman cried out to him, “Help me, my lord the king!”27He answered, “If the LORD does not help you, where can I find help for you? From the threshing floor or the winepress?”…

If you know 2021 very well, then you should be fine, but if you are naive and have not gone through 2021 before, then you need God’s help to go through this year from the beginning to the end.

Your reliable help is not from man but God.

Surrender 2021 to Him, and He will handle each moment for you with certainty and assurance.

I pray that the new year will be full of good surprises and positivity for you in Jesus mighty name.

Happy new year!

How to stop The Falling From Grace 5.0

In my final post on this series, I will share a few strategies for staying afloat and avoiding falling from grace to grass.

I emphasized that Prayer is not just about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction.

Prayer- your saving grace

The secret strategies you can use to stay from sinking are as follows.
– do not ignore the prompts.
– even after falling into sin, go ahead and pray to your God.
– ask God for help
-ask your mentor or counselor for assistance (if you have one)
– if you do not have any mentor or guidance, consistently talk to God both loudly and in your heart.
– you will get out of any trouble if you maintain a cordial relationship with God (remember David and his sinful relationship, and Peter with his denial of Jesus).


– There are times that your flesh is so appealing that it is pushing you to sin against God, and it may overwhelm the weary soul that you give in.

The secret to overcoming this is to keep talking to God in your heart.

The tactic of the devil is to create a guilt feeling. This feeling is so overwhelming that you think God cannot accept you nor listen to you.

It is not true. It is another lie from the enemy to keep your relationship with God strained.

If the devil can get you to think that you are not acceptable or worthless, he has succeeded in keeping you away from God.


If he succeeded in keeping you away from God, then he has succeeded in making your communication with God a difficult one. Once this sets in, you lose your confidence to approach God, and you are on the cause for a steep and deep fall.


If you can kick out this lie, you have overcome it.

The devil plans to cheat us, but God’s plan for us is of peace to give us a beautiful ending.

We will win and overcome by God’s grace.

How to stop The Falling From Grace 2.0

In my last post, I emphasized that Prayer is not just about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction.

Prayer- your saving grace

The reason for this type is because it is a plea to save the Christian not from sin but from falling into dismay.

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat,

Remember, Satan is only doing what he knows best, and that is to “steal, kill and destroy.” Satan intended to destroy Peter (also known as Simon).

God has a better plan; a great purpose for us than we can think of–to save us from the wicked hands.

but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”

I believe Peter would have fallen and failed if Jesus had not intervened and prayed for Peter.

It is this type of pleading that delivers from falling from Grace. We must quest for this with passion, or someone must pray on our behalf to save us from losing it all in life.

Although Peter denied Jesus three times, Peter experienced deliverance from spiritual depression and death.  It is the Grace that Peter enjoyed but that Judas Iscariot could not.

The thin line between missing it and gaining is the Grace of God that comes from passionate intercession and God’s Mercy that comes with it.

I pray that we will not miss it in our lives and that we will enjoy God’s Grace and Mercy that keeps one above and flying high.

How to stop The Falling From Grace 1.0

Recently, I have been studying some notable names in the bible that made mistakes or missteps in their actions but were ultimately saved by grace through the ministry of intercession.

Two people stand-out of the many that are worthy of discussion. I’m talking about Peter and David, both of whom, if not for the grace of intercession that they enjoyed, could have fallen, and their end would have been catastrophic. They made huge errors but rose again through intercessory prayers.

I found the secret to averting falling from grace, and it is Prayer, and I am not talking about the usual talking to God or asking that we all do. I am talking about pleading or begging for a cause, not for a short time but a continual or consistent, intentional act that draws the grace of God to move in a given direction. 

Prayer- your saving grace

Prayers and continual intercession could save anyone from falling regardless of the level of fall.

For the next blogs, I will devote time to talk about Peter and David.

Peter enjoyed the grace of Jesus’ prayers in the dark moments of his life, and as a result, he gained strength that was invaluable in times of need.

David fell after a careless busy-body exhibition, but Nathan, the prophet, interceded on his behalf. He also cried out his soul to God.

Join me as we delve deeper into the two personalities in my next post.
