Topic: BUILD YOUR EXPECTATION. Part 2
I want you to know it today that whatever you are expecting will surely come to pass. Glory to God! If you expect it, you will get it and if you are not expecting it, you will not get it. To be what God wants you to be in life, you must not only believe God for HIS promises in your life, and you must begin to consciously Expect those promises. However, there is a super natural force that draws whatever you are expecting towards you.
Observe what the scripture says; “There is indeed a future, and your hope (Expectation) will never be cut off” (God’s Word Translation). The Young’s Literal Translation puts it this way; “Do not let your heart envy sinners, but continue in the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord all the day long. For, is there posterity? Then thy hope is not cut off” (Proverbs 23:17-18)
Listen, a man’s greatness or failure is a function of his Expectation. A man cannot be greater than his desires. Your height in destiny is a function of your desires. If you expect right based on the promises of God, you will have the right result. And if you expect wrong, based on your past life, your ancestry, past experiences, your environment, situations and circumstances around you and what the devil has done in your life in the past; you will also have the wrong result. May you have the right results from today in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Prayer: I receive Favor to EXPECT GOOD every day of my life in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: BUILD YOUR EXPECTATION
Proverbs 23:18 tells us: “For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off”. Another version says; “For then you will have a future, and your hope will never fade”. The word Expectation is from the Latin word “Expectationem,” which means “awaiting”. It is the belief about (or mental picture of) the future. More so, Expectation simply denotes Great Belief, Maximum Anticipation, and Confidence, Apprehension, Assurance, Expectancy, Hope, Reliance and Great Faith. Glory to God! The scripture tells us about a Certain Man who was crippled from his birth and was daily laid at the gate called beautiful, so that he might beg for charitable gifts from those who entered the temple; he asked them to give him a gift: we learnt that Peter directed his gaze intently at him, and so did John, and said LOOK AT US; and the man paid attention to them, EXPECTING that he was going to get something from them: really, scripture recorded that the Crippled Man fastened his eyes on them with Great Expectation; and at the end of the day, he got more than what he originally expected. He received his miracle and his testimony went viral (Acts 3:1-10). Expectation is the mother of Manifestation. Nothing is impossible unto any man who learns to wait (EXPECT) on the Most High God. Isaiah the Prophet, by divine inspiration summarized this whole subject matter: “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength (causing it to multiply and making it to abound). Even youths shall faint and be weary, and (selected) young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; but those who WAIT for the Lord (who Expect, Look for, and Hope in HIM) shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired” (Isaiah 40:28-31).
Prayer: I receive Favor for a manifestation of miracles in 2018 and beyond in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: Have Realistic Goals in 2018
Psalm 119:18, 130. Habakkuk 2:2
Discover the secret of every notable achiever in the world today and scripture, they were all goal setters. Having a goal without the power to execute is an effort in futility.
For your goal to be real, you must possess courage to pursue vigorously. To be courageous does not mean you do not face challenges. Courage is the willingness to move forward inspite of your fear. I realized that discouragement is caused by your fear being stronger than your intension to move forward. Remember, a dream you do not talk about is not big enough to rule you; it is too small to take place.
Great men in the scripture who made mark in their time actually pursue their goals with all sense of purpose and seriousness. A man does not achieve goal with laziness but, by dint of hard work and personal commitment.
You know what! A goal enables you to focus attention on what you want to accomplish. It also aids the accomplishment of dreams faster than when you approach your dream without a clear direction, through the elimination of distractions. Remember, when a life is devoured of purpose, abuse and frustration is inevitable.
*HAVE CLARITY of PURPOSE in 2018. End the confusion. *
Moreover, a vision that is clear will open your mind to the endless possibilities of the future. A clear vision will help you to overcome obstacles in the way and help you hold on when times are tough. A well defined vision helps you to focus and create a purpose that becomes your measurement for your success.
Prayer: I receive Favor for physical and spiritual CLARITY in 2018 and beyond in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: OBEDIENCE IS WHAT GUARANTEES WEALTH. Part 2
Beloved, obedience to God’s word sets you apart for divine enhancement, enlargement and increase. An obedient man is an ever increasing man. How much God’s word you obey is how much solution you will have. Mary, the mother of Jesus said to the servants, “whatever He says to you DO IT”. When this was done, they came back with solution. “And when the chairman of the feast tasted the water just turned into wine, not knowing where it came from though the servants who had drawn the water knew, he called the bridegroom. And said to him, everyone else serves the best wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then he serves that which is not so good; but you have kept back the good wine until now” (Biblical ref. John 2:1-11). Obedience will make you to have the best! This is the gospel! However, the above was recorded to be the first miracle of Jesus; nevertheless, this miracle was birthed by the singular act of obedience. Obedience to God’s word hastens divine timing which triggers divine manifestation.
Abraham had the best from God by reason of Obedience. His wealth is a generational one. Scripture says; Abraham was extremely rich in livestock and in silver and in gold. Glory to God! The instruction you cannot obey is the destiny you cannot manifest. At the route of any notable high-flyer in scripture and world today is a product of obedience. Obedience makes men while disobedience mars men. You either increase or decrease in proportion to your obedience. God said to the children of Israel, if only you can observe to DO all that is written in the book of the law. The book of Deuteronomy chapter 28 summarized all that will befall any man who lives in obedience.
Prayer: I receive Favor to be set apart for divine enhancement, enlargement and increase in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: OBEDIENCE IS WHAT GUARANTEES WEALTH
Isaiah the Prophet, by the inspiration of the Spirit made a prophetic instruction which many are neglecting today. He said, “If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it” Isaiah 1:19-20
Beloved, the word of God is a propeller and a motivator that propels or motivates men to their enviable destinies. Get this; for you to swim in the ocean of wealth this year, you have got to obey every single instruction of the Lord to the maximum.
Listen, when you mix faith with obedience, you are in for great wealth. Faith is the key to God’s heart; while obedience to His word opens up His heart towards you. The Psalmist said; the secret of God is with them that fear him. Paul tells us: “For without faith, it is impossible to please Him; for whoever would come near to God must necessarily believe that God exists and that is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him out”.
There are two key word in the above scripture; earnestly and diligently. What this means is that; for you to access God; you must sincerely, genuinely and without pretence seek Him. Also, you must seek him (diligently), tirelessly, continuously and without hesitation; then you will find Him. This Jesus affirmed in Matthew 7:7 “Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking(reverently) and the door will be opened to you”. Please stay tuned for the continuation.
Prayer: I receive Favor to be obedient to God and keep my faith in God every day of my life in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: YOU ARE A DUAL CITIZEN
God in his infinite mercy daily loads us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. As Christians, we are partakers of the rights and privileges in heaven. Hebrew 12:22 tells us: “But you have come to Mount Zion, to the City of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly”.
Our position in Christ is a fact! It has already happened. That position was attained for us through Jesus Christ. All we have to do is enjoy the rights and privileges that already belong to us as joints heirs with Christ and as citizens of heaven.
In summary, Ephesians 2:6 says, “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places by the reason of our redemption. Scripture says, if a man is in Christ, such man is a new creation, old things are passed away and all things have become new. Joint sitting with Christ is far above all principalities and powers of darkness. Our seating and reigning with Christ is a position of authority, honor and triumph. Glory to God!
Prayer: I receive Favor to reign with Christ Jesus our Lord in a position of authority, honor and triumph everyday of my life. Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: YOU ARE A DUAL CITIZEN
Paul by the Spirit made a profound statement in Ephesians 2:19: “Therefore you are no longer outsiders but you now share citizenship with the saints (God’s own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself); and you belong to God’s (own) people”.
Concurrently, Philippians 3:30 tells us: “But we are citizens of the state (common wealth, homeland) which is in heaven and from it also we earnestly and patiently await the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) as Savior”.
A citizen is a legal member of a particular country who has rights because of being born there; therefore, he is a benefactor of all rights and privileges and also is ready to identify and defend the legitimate interest of the country. Citizenship is the status of a person recognized under the custom or law as being a legal member of a sovereign state or part of a nation. A person may have multiple citizenships; each country has its own policies, regulations and criteria as to who is entitled to its citizenship. A person can be recognized or granted citizenship on a number of bases. Usually, citizenship based on the place of birth is automatic, but in other cases an application may be required.
However, my point of emphasis is this: as Christians, you are not only citizens of these physical entities (may be Africa, America, Europe or Australia) we are all citizens of heaven by reason of redemption; therefore, we are benefactors of the heavenly blessings. 2 Peter 1:3 tells us: “For His divine power has bestowed upon us ALL THINGS that (are requisite and suited) to life and godliness, through the (full, personal) knowledge of Him who called us by and to His own glory, excellence and virtue”. Don’t miss the conclusion. Please stay tuned!
Prayer: I receive Favor to understand my benefits as a citizen of Heaven in JESUS mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS! Part 2
Love does not fade, even when the gift of tongues, prophecy, and others disappear into perpetual oblivion. Love answers all things. The test of Love is expressed in true Forgiveness. You don’t truly love when you don’t forgive others. JESUS made a profound statement in Matthew 6:12 “Forgive us our debts as we have also
forgiven our debtors”. As believers, we have got to always forgive those who wrong us. Peter asked Jesus a thought provoking question, “how many times will my brother sin against me that I will forgive
him? Jesus then answered and said, seventy times seven. This is actually telling us that Love does not take account of any wrong done irrespective of it gravity. No man has no reason not to forgive others
because, forgiveness is a principle and commandment man must abide to. Forgiveness has a whole lot ofbenefits: emotional liberty is of them. keeping grudges against another is denying yourself the freedom to happiness. The more you see someone you keeping grudges against, the more anger stirs up in you. Certainly, any uncontrolled anger would soon leads to murder. Anger denies you from God’s blessings. The Psalmist said, “Who shall ascend unto the Holy Hill ofGod? It must be a man with a pure heart, and a man with a clean hands. One who has not lifted his soul unto vanity or sworn deceitfully”. So, forgiveness does you more good when you engage it sincerely. If Jesus could pardon and cleans us from all unrighteousness, you don’t have reasons not to forgive your debtors, Forthe scripture declares, even while we were yet sinners, He died for us. Hallelujah!
Prayer: I receive Favor for a pure heart and a clean hands in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS!
My dearly beloved, understanding the power of forgiveness sets you apart for greater heights in destiny. Forgiveness does not mean placing yourself in the position where someone continues to hurt you, destroy you or kill you. It is a matter of your heart not another person’s heart.
The whole concept of forgiveness is wrapped up in love. The scripture says, “Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily”.
You cannot separate love from forgiveness. The act of forgiveness is deeply rooted in love. Scripture declares, “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay His life for his friend”. Listen, Jesus’ nature was all embodiment of Love. This He demonstrated on the Cross, saying “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”. Praying for your enemies is all expressions of love. This was the character of Stephen. At the point of death, He prayed for his enemies. Love is that fruit of the Spirit that will not fade away even when all the gifts of the Spirit fades off. Paul by the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 13, carefully analysed the undying nature of Love; it is patient and kind, it is not proud and arrogant, it takes no account of the evil done to it, it is not self seeking, it’s not rude, it does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Yes! When you forgive yourself and others it allows the truth to prevail in due season. It might take some time. Keep loving even if you have to love from a distance. God sees your heart of love. Grace cannot carry hate. So we should forgive and love even our enemies. Please stay tuned for part 2.
Prayer: I receive Favor to Forgive and Love myself and others in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: WHAT TO DO WHEN DOUBT CREEPS IN! Part 5
The most famous doubter in the bible was Thomas, who declared that he would not believe that Jesus was raised from the dead unless he could see and touch Jesus himself. When he later saw Jesus and believed, he received the gentle rebuke, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed”. (John 20:25-28)
Hebrew 11:1 says, “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen”. We can have confidence even in the things we cannot see, because God has proven Himself faithful, true, and able. The more focus you have on God, the less focus you will have on the world and the stronger your faith will become.
In closing, to overcome the spirit of fear and doubt, you have got to TRUST THE LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Glory to God!
Prayer: I receive Favor to OVERCOME the spirit of fear and doubt and TRUST THE LORD in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: WHAT TO DO WHEN DOUBT CREEPS IN! Part 4
Most times, we allow our human reason to overshadow our faith in God. God expects us to grow daily in Him. This was the experience of Peter when he was faced with the boisterous wind. Scripture says, in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus come to them, walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, it is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright. Instantly, He spoke to them saying, TAKE COURAGE! I AM! STOP BEING AFRAID! And Peter answered him, Lord if it is you; command me to come to you on the water. Jesus in reply said, “Come”. So, Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus. But, when He perceived and felt the strong wind, he was frightened as he began to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me from death! Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and helped Peter saying to him, O ye of little faith, why did you doubt?
This simply tells us that, doubt can stop you from reaching your goal. It can also limit your speed in destiny. And can stop you from accessing divinity. The remedy for doubt is faith, and faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Listen, God gave us the bible as a testimony to His works in the past, so we will have a reason to trust Him in the present.
The Psalmist writes, “I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago” (Psalm 77:11). In order for us to have faith in God, we must study to know what HE has said. Once we have an understanding of what God has done in the past, what He has promised us for the present, and what we can expect from Him in the future, we are able to act in faith instead of doubt.
Prayer: I receive Favor to have Faith that will nullify doubt in my life in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: WHAT TO DO WHEN DOUBT CREEPS IN! Part 3
You can either have good fruits or thorns growing in the garden of your heart. The choice is yours to make! You have got to guide it diligently. Doubt, if not overcome would soon develop abilities to cripple the power of God from moving in your direction.
Doubts are product of fear and fear is clear indication that you lack confidence in God. How can the man you don’t believe in rescue you? Scripture says: Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the word of God. Faith is the direct opposite of fear. If faith comes by hearing, doubt and fear also emanate through the hearing faculty. What you hear matters because; it has the potency to either make or break you.
When Zachariah was visited by the Angel of the Lord and told that he would have a son. However, he doubted the word given to him. He logically assumed that he and his wife were too old to have children, and in response to his doubt, the Angel said he would be mute until the day God’s promise was fulfilled (Luke 1:20-20)
Most times, we doubt God’s ability to overcome natural obstacles using our myopic mind to limit and calculate God. My beloved, you have got to have your mind recreated, rebranded, revolutionized, transfigured, if you must obtain God’s promise this year. Change your way of thinking. Your mind is where the journey of life begins. Therefore, exploit and maximize it potentials so that you get the best out of it.

TOPIC: WHAT TO DO WHEN DOUBT CREEPS IN! Part 2
Doubt is a mental state in which the mind remains suspended between two or more contradictory propositions, unable to assent to any of them. Doubt on an emotional level, is indecision laying or rejecting relevant action out of concern for mistake or missed opportunities.
A working definition of doubt is “to lack confidence. Doubt is not the absence of faith; it is the questioning of faith”. You can only doubt what you already believe!
The very first expression of doubt in the bible is in Genesis 3, when Satan tempted Eve. God had already given a clear command regarding the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and had specified the consequence of disobedience.
Satan played a fast game on Eve by introducing doubt into her mind; “Did God actually say, ‘you shall not eat of any tree in the garden? He wanted her to lack confidence in God’s command. When affirmed God’s command, including the consequences, Satan replied with a denial, which is a stronger statement of doubt; “You will not surely die”.
Listen, doubt is a tool of Satan to make us lack confidence in God’s word and consider HIS judgment unlikely. However, we must consciously guide our hearts because, in them flow thoughts of life. I had said, the mind is likened unto a cultivated garden awaiting something to be sown. My beloved, whether you like it or yes, whatever you sow in the garden must germinate and grow. This is the gospel!
Prayer: l receive favor to always keep my CONFIDENCE in God’s Word in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

James admonished; “if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double minded man, unstable in all his ways”. (James 1:5-8)
Beloved, in God’s agenda, nothing works for the doubting Thomas. For every sustainable lifting is a function of faith; as in God is crippled and handicapped without faith. Apostle Paul writes: “But whoever has doubt is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin (Romans 14:23 ESV)
Every genuine greatness is orchestrated by faith. Faith is what gives a man access into the realm of endless possibilities. Everything is accessible to that man who learns to approach God by faith (Hebrew 11:6) “For without faith is impossible to please God”. Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, be taken up and thrown into the sea; it will happen”. Oh I am building up my faith and I am overcoming the strong hood of fear and doubt in Jesus mighty name. Glory to God

TOPIC: MAKE YOUR ABODE IN HIM! Part 3
My beloved, you have got to make prayer a lifestyle and keep building your faith through the word. Scripture says; the word I speak to you they are spirit and they are life. The word is Jesus in the flesh. And the word (Christ) became flesh and tabernacle among us; and we saw His glory, such glory as on only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace and truth.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Choose what you hear this year. Whatever you hear can either build up faith in you or steer up fear in you. Mind you, all these occur in the mind faculty. That is why scripture tells us; guild your heart diligently because, out of it proceeds issues of life. Don’t allow any negative thought to build up in your mind. Of course, negative thoughts will come; but, the question is; what do you do with them when they come? When thought of death, defeat, poverty, sickness etc… come; do you accept and act on them? Of course, you should not. Only accepts thoughts that will promote your life this year in the right and positive direction and not the opposite direction. Do not be conformed to this word; but be transfigured, transformed, modified, revolutionized and changed by the renewing of your mind.
The Psalmist concluded the whole matter; “I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my fortress, my God; on HIM I lean and rely and confidently trust (Psalm 91:2).

Moses said; “Lord, you have been our dwelling place and our refuge in all generations. (Psalm 90:1)
My beloved, this is one of the secrets of longevity.There is no harm or mischief for that man who has made God his habitation. The Psalmist made a striking remark on this regard: “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty (whose power no foe/enemy can withstand).
I have discovered that divine protection is not a function of earthly security. The earthly security has limitations; of course they are limited to physical wars and battles. Mind you, it is the spiritual that controls the physical. Any man who has not won in the spirit cannot conquer in the physical realm. Every Physical victory is a product of spiritual conquest.
In the book of Ephesians, Paul made a profound statement; “In conclusion, be strong in the Lord (be empowered through your union with Him); that you may be able successfully to stand up against all the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood (contending only with physical opponents) but, against the despotisms, against the powers, against (the master spirits who are) the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly sphere” (6:10-12)

TOPIC: TO MAKE GAIN, YOU HAVE GOT TO USE YOUR BRAIN! Part 2
Before you can do a thing, you have to think it. Your thought determines your attitude. Mind you, you cannot be greater than your thought. A man’s greatness or failure is directly proportional to his thought system. Your thought leads to attitudes; attitude leads to actions; actions lead to those achievements. It all begins with the thought life. Your achievements will be the sum total of your thoughts. A wise man once said, “Sow a thought, and reap a deed. Sow a deed, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny”. The above excerpt tells us: your destiny is a function of your thought system. And your thought is a product of your mind. Your thoughts either positive or negative; it controls your attitudes. Your attitudes are the sum total of your thought. In summary, it is only God’s word that can give you the right pictures and motivations. He has so much blessed you with amazing abilities and a brain to help you think, plan, work and enjoy life to the fullness according to His will. The mind is a like a fertile soil; anything you sow on it germinates. So, be careful, what enters your mind because, when God or the Devil wants to influence a man, He goes through the mind.

Am I saying prayer and fasting are immaterial and of no consequence? Absolutely not! I observe them a lot. Fasting and prayers have their roles. However, the Point I wish to establish here is this: a man who only learns to pray and fast without thinking will soon go into extinction. Some time ago, the Spirit of God ministered to my heart saying, “the more you think, the less you stink; the less you think the chances you stink”. Listen, a man who does not think, stinks. This is the gospel. Mind you, a man who stinks is equivalent to a dead man. So, the day you stop thinking, that is the day you start dying. However, this is unknown to many. This is what I call mental death!
It is during the process of thinking that you have your mind clouded with good thoughts and ideas. Mind you, there is a big discrepancy between thinking and anxiety. Some persons are anxious, apprehensive, fretful, and worried and they thought they are engaging in “thinking”. It is fear that produces anxiety; while faith makes you to put your mind to work; because, you have got the revelation from the word that says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. If you want to be successful in your Christian life, ministry, business and academics, you have got to fix your mind on the right things. What you think is what you are. Your thought life is what controls you. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7. This episode is still loading, please stay tuned. Blessings.
Prayer: l receive favor to guide my thought life with faith and please God alone in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: YOU CANNOT BE DISADVANTAGED! Part 3.
You have got to discovered God’s plan and purpose for your life this year if you must experience unending inflow of God’s glory. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that LOVE GOD, to them who are called according to HIS PURPOSE”. My beloved, there is nothing more profiting like God’s purpose; in it you shall gain fulfillment, satisfaction, elevation, and lots more. He said to Jeremiah, “For I know the thought and plans I have for you, thought of peace and not evil, to give you an expected end. You cannot be in God’s purpose and be disadvantaged. You cannot be in God’s plans and not end well. What is not committed in God’s hand is not kept well.
Find your place in God and you will be glad you did. The Psalmist cried out; Oh God, my heart longs for you as the deer pants over the water brook. In summary, to live a life of opulence this year, you have got to find PURPOSE IN GOD AND LOVE HIM with all your heart.
In closing, the heart or spirit of the Ten Commandments is LOVE. Love the Lord your Godwith all your heart, with all your soul, with all your might and your substances. And the other is like the previous; Love your Neighbor as yourself. Be like Joseph: inspite of all challenges, he was propelled and motivated by the love he has for God. And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph, and he said, lie with me. But the young man refused the golden offer, and said unto his master’s wife; HOW CAN I DO THIS GREAT WICKEDNESS, AND SIN AGAINST GOD? Do it not for your passion or desire alone, do what you do because you LOVE God. MY beloved, I dare you to be a lover of God this year!
Prayer: l receive favor to LOVE God more than my passion and desire in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: YOU CANNOT BE DISADVANTAGED! Part 2
King Solomon summed it up in Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: FEAR God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” The Psalmist said, for the secret of God is made known to them who FEAR Him.
Follow me closely; the above scriptures were wrongly translated. It was in the days of old that fear was inculcated in the heart of men. But in the New Testament, we no longer fear but love God. I might have created in you some iota of thoughts and feelings right now. However, this is the gospel. Am I saying we should not fear God? That is not the point! The sole point here is this: you have got to establish your relationship with God and men on the basis of LOVE not FEAR. For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. This means you are powerful, loving, and mentally sound.
Wait a moment! How can you seek help from a man you strictly fear? This is not possible! However, you can seek help from a man you love. The book of Proverb says: “For the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom”. In this scripture, the word fear means reverence, most adored!
My beloved, to experience an unending inflow of possibilities, you have got to love God. I urge you to increase your love for Him. “The love of God is shared and broad in our hearts through the Holy Ghost”. There are different ways you could prove your love for the Almighty God this year: By engaging in Kingdom investment, sowing seeds of righteousness, soul winning, giving, singing psalms and hymns to His Name etc… Matthew 6:33 tells us: “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all those things shall be added unto you. Those things in quote include “your daily needs”.
Prayer: l receive favor to experience the unending love of God in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: YOU CANNOT BE DISADVANTAGED!
A child of God cannot be disadvantaged! This is the gospel. This is because we have a better covenant that is at work to our advantage.
Paul the apostle made a very striking statement on this regard: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that LOVE GOD, to them who are called according to HIS PURPOSE. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called; and whom he called, them he also justified, and whom he justified, them he also glorified” Romans 8:28-30.
Carefully observe our preceding scriptural reading…. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that LOVE GOD, to them who are called according to HIS PURPOSE”…
My beloved, the basis is love. Your love for God has to be assured. Besides, you have got to accept HIS plans and purpose for your life. You cannot be disadvantaged when you are working in love and you are in God’s plan. How much you love God is a function of how much glory that will be revealed in you and through you this year. Oh I love God! Yes, it must be intentional.
Prayer: l receive favor to love GOD everyday of my life in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: PUT OFF THE OLD MINDSET part 3 & conclusion.
God speaking to Jeremiah: “for I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome’’
Ponder on the above statement; this simply means God Himself has a mindset. “…for I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you” Says the Lord… listen, it takes a mind to have a thought of plan. God’s mind is the mind of peace, provision, victory and hope. Listen, God’s word which is the seed of God; when it enters into the womb of your mind, it fertilizes the egg and bring about unprecedented opulence. Glory to God!
Hebrew 4:12 tells us: “The word of God is quick, and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intent of the heart”. Your mind is the soletool for your transformation this year and you need to reorganize and reprogram it (your mind) with God’s word and aligning your thinking, perceptions and mindset about God, other people, the world, and yourself, with His word.
In closing, you are a reflection of your thoughts. Your life is the outward manifestation of the inner workings of your mind. PUT OFF THE OLD MIND SET AND WEAR THE MINDSET OF A CHAMPION!
Prayer: l receive favor to allow God’s WORD enter into the WOMB of my MIND and produce results in JESUS mighty name Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: PUT OFF THE OLD MINDSET
My beloved, it is important to note that transformation is from one level of glory to another, from one standard of living to a higher and better one. There are absolutely no restrictions to how high you can propel yourself in life. There are no limits to what you can achieve when you put your mind- power to work; the possibilities are endless and boundless. Amen & Hallelujah!
Your prosperity is not determined by your location, background or economic situation. It is determined by the content, quality and state of your mind. Proverbs says; “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is”. You have got to guide your heart diligently and meticulously because, out of it precedes issues of life.
All you need is God’s word to have your mind renewed. “And be not conformed to this world , but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect, will of God’’. Only God’s word can renew and refresh the mind and prepare it for greatness. The word of God can give you a new mindset. The mindset of a champion, greatness and of a conqueror!
Please stay tuned for the conclusion of this topic.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor for the mindset of a champion, greatness and of a conqueror in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: PUT OFF THE OLD MINDSET
The book of Luke chapter 24:45 reveals something very striking; “then He (thoroughly) opened up their minds to understand the scriptures”.
My beloved, it is your understanding that guarantees your outstanding. Men of understanding are outstanding in their area of expertise. At the route ofany outstanding men in the scripture and world today is understanding. You need your mind to understand what the scripture is saying concerning you this year. Should in case you had the mindset of a failure, fear and impossibility last year, this year you have got to put off the old mindset and wear a mindset of a champion, victor and a conqueror; by cooperating with God’s word for your life.
Paul the apostle admonished us in Romans 12:2: “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), (fashioned after and adapted to its external , superficial customs), but be transformed (changed) by therenewal of your entire mind (by its new ideals and attitudes ), so that you may prove (for yourselves) what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the things which is good and acceptable and perfect (in His sight for you)”.
My beloved, you need a new mindset to chat the course of your destiny. “…be ye transfigured, transformed, and changed by the renewing of your mind… “. God has fashioned your mind as the sole instrument for your transformation. Even when you decide to renew your cars, wardrobes, homes or bank account and refuse to renew your mind; you still won’t be transformed. You have got to put off the old mindset so that you can experience a 360 degree transfiguration this year.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor for a new mindset to chat the course of my destiny in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: BUILD SELF CONFIDENCE. Part 3 & conclusion.
Why do you think the Lord so often tells us, “fear not”? It is because if you allow thoughts of fear, they will affect your mind and stop the power of God from flowing in your direction. You have got to have your mind disciplined with God’s word. Start learning to think productive thoughts. Practice it until you become good at it, such that whenever negative thoughts of discomfort, frustration, bitterness, anger and annoyance etc come to you, you can easily say no to them and change your mind. In learning to use your mind right, you have got to be conscious of the truth that you have a sound mind. In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul said: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”. Your confidence is built when you are conscious of the above. God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. This means you are powerful, loving, and mentally sound. When you put these three qualities: Power, Love, and a Sound mind together, the result is excellence. You are excellent!
Observe carefully, I love how the Amplified version puts it; “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear) but, (He has given us a spirit) of power and of love and of calm and well balanced mind and discipline and self control”. Hallelujah!
In closing, some people are powerful but not loving; some are loving but does not have sound mind. But your case is different, you have got all the three; you are complete in Christ! You have got a sound mind, and you have got to use it to transform your life and your world.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor to be powerful, loving, and mentally sound in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: BUILD SELF CONFIDENCE. Part 2
Let me use this medium to enlighten your eyes on the word failure. Listen, you are not a failure because you failed; you are a failure because you refused to try again. Success is all about taking calculative risks and attempting new plans of actions. The worst tragedy of life is to allow the devil to mess up your mind and tell you that you cannot make it no more. Reject every negative thought that says you cannot make it no more. I want you to look at devil eye ball to eye ball and tell Him; destiny cannot stop here! You are pressing towards the mark. Nothing can stop a child of destiny. Your challenges of today are the raw materials God is using to process your glorious future.
Observe carefully the sayings of prophet Micah: “But as for me, I will look to the Lord and be confident in Him and keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O my enemy! When I fall, I shall arise: when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me” Micah 7:7-8.
One of the beautiful things you can do for yourself as a Christian is to always build in your mind the right pictures about what you want in life. It pays when you activate your faith eyes to see beyond your present horizon and envision yourself living out the very best of what God has prepared for you in this world. And this will only come to light when you act confidently on the word of God and take a bold step into destiny.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor to ACT CONFIDENTLY ON THE WORD OF GOD in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

TOPIC: BUILD SELF CONFIDENCE
One of the success recipes God talked about in the book of Joshua is self confidence. God said to Joshua: “Be strong (confident) and of good courage, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them” Joshua 1:6.
The above is a divine command to man “Be strong (confident) and of good courage…” it is only courage one needs to go forward in destiny. It is that great force that propels, instigates, motivates and advances men to greatness. Courage is the ability to go forward inspite of all fears. Fear is that false expression appearing to be real. God instructed His servant Joshua: “Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go” Joshua 1:7
The reason some people are still where they are, year in and year out is because of fear. Discouragement is that deadly arrow the devil normally fires at men of greatness. It is only discouragement that can stop a great man from achieving his greatness. Nothing worksfor a discouraged man. As a matter of fact; a discouraged man attempts nothing new because, he is afraid to fail again. He bounces on past glories. That will not be your portion this year is Jesus mighty name Amen. To build your confidence, pray often, study your bible daily, eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and make a conscious effort to exercise 2 to 3 times a week. Invest in yourself by reading books and learning new things.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor to BUILD MY CONFIDENCE in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: STEER UP THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT. Part 2
One of the primary purposes of the Holy Spirit coming into a Believer’s life is to change that life. It is the Holy Spirit’s job to confirm us into the image of Christ, making us more like Him.
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is in direct contrast with the acts of the sinful nature in Galatians 5:19-21, “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: Sexual Immorality, Impurity, and debauchery; Idolatry and Witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of range, selfish ambition, dissensions, envy, drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Our sinful flesh produces certain types of fruit that reflect our nature, and the Holy Spirit produces types of fruit that reflect His nature.
God’s mind for us is to see us grow daily in Him by entering into a true sanctification process with Him so that He can begin the process of molding, shaping, and transforming us into the express image of His Son Jesus Christ. He wants to transform us by the renewing of our minds. He wants to put right thinking into our thought process and this is only possible when we begin to work in Love, then the other virtues being the different manifestations of love in operation will begin to give expression.
Prayer: Lord, l receive favor to be conformed into the image of Christ in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: STEER UP THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
Galatians 5:22-23 tells us about the Fruit of the Sprit; “But the Fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness and Self Control.Against such things there is no law”.
The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the result of the Holy Spirit’s presence in the life of a believer. The Spirit of God helps to propagate such to believers once you are born of God. The Spirit of God is the carrier of the fruit. Note that, the other fruit is rooted in Love. Observe carefully; “But the fruit of the Spirit is Love ….. Joy, Peace, Forbearance…..etc” The Bible did not say, “The Fruit of the Spirit are! It made use of the singular verb ‘is’ telling us that Love is vitally important in acquiring the others. If you don’t have Love, you can’t experience Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.
According to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; Paul by the Spirit tells us the character of Love: Love is Patient, Love is Kind. It does not envy, it does not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs; Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophesies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled, where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
Prayer: Lord, I receive favor to steer up the FRUIT of the SPIRIT everyday of my life in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.

Topic: Understanding the Power of Unity. Part 2
God command unity among believers because, once conflict enters the midst of any assembly or entity, productively and usefulness is inevitably ground to a halt and the whole organization weakened and becomes vulnerable to attack. As Jesus said, “any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall”. The bible says that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8) and Paul appeals to the churches that there be no division among the believers (1corithians 1:10). Believers should be united in their purpose and judegment, avoiding people who cause division and create obstacles contrary to sound doctrine. In this new year 2018 and beyond, Christians are not to quarrel but to be unified around a common understanding of truth. “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity” (psalm 133:1).
In Genesis 11, we see the power of unity. God looks down from Heaven and see that the people of the earth are getting more and more powerful. They are trying to build a very high tower (the tower of Babel) that will reach into heaven (11:6). He remarks, “Behold, the people is one and they have one language; and this they have started, and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”. So God scatters the people by giving them different languages to speak. This explains to us that a united people are unstoppable.
In closing, a fruit of the spirit is peace (Galatians 5:22). Christians are followers of the Prince of Peace.We are called to live in harmony with one another and, as far as it depends on us, to be at peace with everyone. Jesus Christ is building His church (Matt 16:18). His ‘House’, his kingdom will not be destroyed, and his dominion will never end’ (Dan 6:26).
Prayer: Lord, I receive favor to build the body of Christ in Jesus mighty name. Amen! Receive and please share. Blessings.
