Invest In Your Future Today

It is said, “you cannot have your cake and eat it.” once eaten, it’s gone!
The story of the talent resonates this statement. Two of them invested the little they have and gain extra while the last guy did not invest but waste the only coin he had. The result is simple. The two that invested their coins gained extra coins while the last guy did not but lamented all day long.

Invest today; harvest tomorrow.

The extra money you invest today yields extra change for you in the future.
The time you invest in your marriage makes a happy family.
The investment you put into the lives of your kids provides for them a great future.
Education is an investment and the result is a great career.

God gave His Son to redeem us from sin. Now we have a glorious future ahead of us.

To reap a great harvest, you must sow seeds. And do not forget, whatever you sow is what you will reap.


So, I say to you, invest into your life, your marriage, business, children, your knowledge of God and to humanity and expect a great harvest.


Take time to do things that will affect your future positively. Invest today; harvest tomorrow.

Victory at last

When Jesus said, “it is finished”, I perceived He was saying that He’s conquered all and defeated the enemy.

Before making those affirmative words, He was heavily burdened by the sufferings but afterwards, He declared victory over sin, Satan and death.

Victory @ last!


So, as believers who believed in Him, you rise up not in fear but in faith and declare your victory over sin, Satan, death, failures, failing marriages, failing businesses, falling projects, sicknesses and diseases, including coronavirus. Victory is ours in Jesus name

You must get up and say to that “thing”, whatever it is, “get up and get lost!”

the weakest believer on any day is stronger than the enemy the moment He recognizes and exercise the God given authority.

Victory at last!

Extra benefits

If the odds are stacked against you, look out for where at least one opportunity exist and make maximum use of it.

Don’t ask amiss; ask aright.

God is constantly working to load His children with daily benefits.

Think about it, parents look after their own children. Definitely, God looks after His own.

Blessed forever!

Satan has lost his grip

The first thing the believers need to know is that they are a victorious people. This mentality alone will always defeat the enemy. Satan get weary of a Christian who doesn’t give up.

Your authority over the devil is the same authority that Jesus have. You have equal power in His name to defeat all wicked arrows of the enemies.

Therefore, understand that you are fighting from the victory stands. You can never be defeated without you defeating yourself. So, you must defeat yourself for the enemy to be able to defeat you.

Satan has lost all grips over you except those you allow him to have (if any). This mentality will always guarantee you a daily victory. So, even if you fall, if you keep getting back up, your authority and power over your enemies are forever guaranteed. Yes, forever guaranteed!

Do not believe in the devil’s lies. Check it out, we have equal status with Jesus because God adopted us like His Son, Jesus. This is who you are, but you need to know this.

Ephesians 1:18-21 NIV
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength [20] he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, [21] far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

Live daily with this mentality and you will never experience defeat again.

Still Standing

In a world where just about anything can flaw you, you need an exceptional grace of God to stand and keep standing.

It’s only by the grace of God that you can stand, not because you are a good person but because God is a good God.

It’s easy to fall to errors, problems and multiple mistakes in our world. Therefore, to stand strong and still function effectively, you definitely need the grace.

Standing up and staying strong is not an option but the only thing you need to do.

Many will fall, many will fail the test, many will make simple and grave mistakes but you can still stand like David and still bear the name “a man after God’s own heart “.

Everytime you fall, jump back up and keep moving. When Moses was confused about what to do and how to lead the Israelites through the red sea, God told him, tell them to “go forward”.

Your only option is to keep standing. So, defy all odds and get back up and stand and keep standing through God’s Grace.

Find Your Heart; Find Your God

The precious word of Solomon is “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”.

The days of trouble or despair or times we do not expect or find palatable are bound to come and pains may increase or discomfort pressure at every turn. During this period, it is the knowledge and the experience we have that often helps us survive and overcome such tides of life.

Your Heart- Your connection to God

It is important to know God so you will be able to overcome during difficult moment. Your knowledge of God guarantees you victory. It is the truth you know that can set you free. You cannot do what you have no idea nor knowledge of doing. And you cannot wait until the moment of trouble before you seek God.

Now has always be the best time to seek God and connect your heart to Him. Tomorrow is not always guarantee. Also, you cannot use the success of today to measure the breakthrough for tomorrow. Each day has its own battle and you must be ready to fight each battle in a unique way.

If your heart is evil or is far from God, then you have no other choice than to rely on other source of help. Other source of help are often not reliable as they often fail.

For instance, your intellect may fail you. Your success or material wealth may fail you. In fact, needless to say that friends and sometimes loved ones can fail you. I have found out that ONLY God cannot let you down no matter the situation. With God, help is always around the corner.

Nobody leaves in a vacuum so no one can say “I don’t need God.” You may not like to serve Him or love Him or even care about anything, but whether it is now or later at the end of life, the realization is that you either found out how much you have lived without Him or you jump for joy that you did not turn your heart away from God.

Therefore, create a space in your heart for God to reside. Let Him come in and live inside of you. Do not hardened your heart nor turn your attention to the things of life that fades away. A relationship with God is worth much more than gold. Find a place in your heart for God and you would have found eternity.

Find Your Heart; Find your Means

You can conceive great ideas and logical means of creating wealth . As long as your heart does not condemn your actions, this is possible. For instance, your heart will lead you to your place of destiny, to the place where you will be successful or fulfilled. The scientific function of the heart is to pump and supply blood to every part of the body.

Your Heart- Source of your Mean

This means the heart knows and reaches every part of a human body. It is safe, then, to say that the heart knows every part of the bodies’ need. It can guide you to where your treasure lies.

If your heart is filled with an evil thought, it can only produce evil actions. If you cheat, it’s because you conceive cheating in your heart. If you lie, it’s because your heart has been seared, corrupt and degraded that it cannot hold the truth anymore. If you work hard, it’s because your heart believes working hard is key to success. whatever you do, your heart conceives it. This is why your heart has to be “good” to produce any good actions.

Behind every intentions is a longing heart that serves as a driving, propelling force to fulfill the intentions. Therefore, if you can find your heart, you will be able to find your purpose for existence. If you do this, you may likely provide and meet your own need while fulfilling your longings.

A CPA student’s desire will be to complete the exams and practice or use the certificate to get a better job. The same goes for PMP student, MBA student, Ph.D student and for any profession.

Imagine if the same heart can conceive any evil thought at all. This means that a person can wake up with the soul purpose of carrying out an evil act such as mass shooting or bombing, robbing a bank or cheating.

The more compelling thought is that the heart can hold any thought within a second and can keep such thought (plan) for a very long time—becoming a purpose–with a desire to achieve this purpose. Therefore, if your heart is evil, you are a potential danger to anyone.

Prayers can Defeat the Power of Evil

The Bible says that “when the righteous prospers, the city rejoices…..” Yes, when a “good” man rules, there is peace and abundance in the land. Just the opposite happens when an evil man reigns over the land.

Good vs Evil

It occurs to me that believers cannot just afford to fold hands and do nothing while evil prevails over the land and where there are perversions in the city.

Believers must rise and pray. They must pray against the reign of evil. It is the power of prayers that can defeat evil. And the prayer of a righteous man works wonder.

So, to every believer and those who love the Lord, let us rise (and continue to rise) and take up the challenge and pray for the deliverance of the land from evil before it overtakes us all.

Only the effective prayers of the believers can defeat the power of evil that is in the land.

Rise up and knock out the evil from the land and see righteousness reign again!

Good Vs Evil- where it all began

I have always thought about evils that prevail in our society today. The presence of evil and the people who commit such act called evil often worries me.

Good vs Evil

My mind flashed back to the garden of Eden. In the garden, God told Adam and Eve to avoid eating the apple because if they do, the apple will open their eyes to the world of Evil. So, we can deduce that Adam and Eve did not know anything called Evil or we can say that it did not exist then.

But we all know– they did eat the apple courtesy of the devil’s temptation.
Talking about the devil, if you remove the letter “d” from his name, we have “evil”. something tells me that the author of evil must be the devil himself.

Yes, devil was the first to disobey God and leads all other and he is still leading others to disobey God.
But one quick thing is that Adam and Eve chose to listen to the devil. So, had they not listen to that evil voice, we will probably not be where we are today.

So, choose carefully who and what you listen to.

There is always a voice telling you to do something bad or terrible. You can choose to listen to the voice or you can choose to shut the voice out.

If you decide to command the evil voice to shut up and get lost, I believe that “the voice” will realize that you know who you are and that you understand your authority.

Good has the overwhelming capacity to overcome evil to the extent that we allow or enable it.

Choose to do good today and see the world become a better place.

Keep It Up

Our daily lives are so busy with so many things to accomplish and do. Many of the things we do are not necessarily of eternal values. They are just earthly relevant.

It is the responsibility of the believer to keep up the light shining and the fire burning.

The worries of this life: the desires to achieve and be successful are strong but the grace of God is greater and stronger.

The Bible said, “But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.

There are vital ingredients that are useful to keeping it up in your faith–stay in love, build your faith through the Word and never stop praying.

Don’t be caught in the web of this lives, and refuse to worry about anything by focusing on God who promise to be with you forever. If you do this, you will not lose your momentum and you will be able to encourage others too.
