Gen 8:20-21..."The Noah built an alter to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offering on the alter. And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, I will never again curse the ground for man's sake...nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done."

Still on sacrifice. When last did you sacrifice something that caused you a fortune unto God? We are in a generation of grabbing from God but never ready to offer our substance unto Him. Most of the things you pray and fast for can be triggered just by a single act of genuine sacrifice.

After the flood, Noah decided to offer a sacrifice unto God (note that he has always been a righteous man which qualified him and his family to be saved from the flood). Yet, he picked the best of his animals and the best of his birds and offered it to God. He picked the best of what he had. When last did you give unto God the best of what you have and or what cost you greatly unto God? It is a pity we are in the generation of giving left over to God. We work for God only at our convenience, we give only what we can afford and we give time that is left over. No wonder miracles are no more a daily occurrence in the body of Christ.

Immediately Noah offered the sacrifice, God smelled it. Halleluyah! Can your sacrifice be smelt by God? By one sacrifice by Noah, the curse placed upon mankind through Adam was removed. God changed his mind because of one man's sacrifice. You too can change your world, you only need to take up the challenge and give the best of all.

Pray aloud: Lord, I offer all unto you!


Gen 22:19-20..."So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba. Now it came to pass after these things that it was told Abraham, saying; Indeed Milcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor."

You don't know the extent your sacrifice to God can go to bless you and people around you. One attribute that is gradually slipping away from the body of Christ is sacrificial given. Sacrifice means to give up precious things regardless of its value/profit thereby sometimes causing you a disadvantage. It is the surrendering of something prized or desirable to an higher authority.

When last did you sacrifice your possession, time, intellect or giftings for the sake of the gospel? Christians loose more when they lack sacrificial attitude towards God. In today's text, immediately Abraham came back from the mountain where he was to sacrifice Isaac, his brother whose wife had been barren gave birth. When you are reckless with your sacrifice, God is ready to embarrass you with His blessing.

Abraham was unrepentantly reckless in obeying to sacrifice Isaac, and because of that singular act, he became the father of faith, even members of his family immediate and extended were blessed. He became a reference point in christiandom till today. Do you wonder why up till now we still sing; "Abraham's blessings are mine". Its all because of an act of sacrifice.

When last did you sacrifice something that cost you unto God?

...and the gathering together of the waters called He seas; and God saw that it was GOOD- Gen 1:10 (2nd day).
...and God saw that it was GOOD- Gen 1:2 (3rd day).
...and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was GOOD- Gen 1:18 (4th day).

The earth was formless, void, chaotic and darkness was all over the face of the earth- Gen 1:1-2. It is worthy of note as stated above that on each day of creation God always declares; "IT IS GOOD". This was in spite of the fact that it was just the 2nd, 3rd or 4th day of creation. Creation was yet to finish, God was still at work yet He declared each day "GOOD".

The work God is doing in your life is GOOD, no matter the stage or the spot you are right now in your journey into purpose, please enjoy it and quit complaining. Even if it looks imperfect, your ability to see the GOODNESS in the present chaotic situation in your life is what should keep you going in the journey of life.

God had a purpose in mind going all the way to end on the sixth day, but in spite of the fact that the earth was still an unfinished business and still not what God intended on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th day, God continued to declare it GOOD on each day/stage. Your life is GOOD at the stage you are right now, you are a work in progress, God has not finished with you yet.

Behold, the sixth day of your journey into destiny is at hand. After the sixth day, God rested. I declare upon you today, you will soon enter into your rest also in Jesus name.

Declare it; My life is GOOD where I am right now!

Gen 1:1-3..."In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said; Let there be light, and there was light.

Bro and Sister, I don't care how chaotic the situation and circumstances of your life is, the moment the WORD of God is released over the situation it must change for the best. The earth was in chaos, formless, void and dark, but at the entrance of the WORD, the chaotic situation gave way. Please note carefully, the spirit of God was present and was moving, yet, the situation remains chaotic. Until the WORD was spoken, the creative power can't do anything!

Friend, no matter how spiritual you are, and no matter the level of annoiting you claim is upon you, but, if you are WORDLESS, you are a disaster going somewhere to happen. God is not moved by your crying and emotions. The only language the devil and his agents understand is the power of His WORD. God does not listen to your voice but His WORD behind your voice.

I want to throw you a challenge today; can you quote five scriptures concerning the issues of life you are dealing with and causing you problems? In Luke 7:7-9, the Centurion said to Jesus, you don't have to come to my house, just speak the WORD and I know my servant would be healed. Halleluyah! The Centurion recognised the power of His WORD. Do you?

Pray it aloud: I need your WORD Lord!

Luke 5:1-2 "So it was as the multitude press to hear the WORD of God...and He saw two boats standing by the lake,but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets."

Peter and his partners have toiled all night without catching a single fish, and they were washing their nets. In vs. 3, Jesus borrowed one of Peter's boats to teach the people that are gathered. Peter was a professional fisherman just like you are a professional in your own field. But, that night, his professionalism and expertise counted for nothing. He was already packing up the business just like someone reading this is about to give up on that business.

Something significant however happened, Jesus asked for use of Peters boat to preach the WORD. See vs. 4, "When He had stopped speaking He said to Simon, launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." The moment you are ready to surrender your business to God, a WORD that will change the chaotic situation your business is going through will come for you. The WORD has the capacity to locate the problem in your business and career and solve it. Only the WORD can locate your destiny and give you direction.

See vs. 5, "...Master we have toiled all night and caught nothing (an expert evaluation) but at your WORD I will let down the net". I challenge you to dare to believe His WORD and your life will change for the best. Peter caught so many fishes, his net was breaking and had to call others to help. I prophesy upon your life as you read this, that business you think is to small, you will soon call on others to come and partake from it in Jesus name! Your business/career receive life now through the power of His WORD!

Declare it aloud; The WORD works!

John 2: 7..."Jesus said to them, 'Fill the water POTS with WATER'. And they filled them up to the brim".

The clay pots in the above text represents you and me, and the water represents the word of God. What the clay pots is filled with determines what will be drawn out of it. The question to you today is, what do you fill your life and your spirit with? It is very significant for a Christian to watch what he's been fed with and where he's been fed. If you feed/fill your spirit with garbage, garbage will be drawn out of you automatically!

The word of God is the only thing that you can feed your life and spirit with and will produce a greater dimension of impact for your life and within your sphere of influence. You will become a salt to your world. Now, let's see vs 8, "And He said to them, 'Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast'...". Jesus was very sure of what will be drawn out of those clay pots because He was sure of what He filled them with. Can a demand be placed on what you have been filling and feeding yourself with?

Friend, you are destined to bring forth new wine, but for new wine to be drawn out of you, you must have taken a conscious decision to load and soak yourself in the water of the word of God. That's the only guarantee for you to bring forth sweet wine. If you go further to vs 9, the master of the feast even acknowledge this new wine because the taste and the feeling was different.

Has your life so much ministered to non believers that they wonder how positive your life is impacting others and your environment? I encourage you to fill your life and spirit with the water of the word of God so that new wine can be drawn out of you.

Pray aloud; Fill me up Lord!

1Kings 17:1- "And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, 'As the Lord lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word'".

Do you know who you are? Knowing who you are will determine the kind of exploit you will do upon the face of the earth. In today's text, Elijah knew who he was, therefore, he was empowered to make a declaration and the heavens backed him up! Note carefully, Elijah said there shall not be dew nor rain for three years in the land except at his word, that is, except he gave a contrary declaration. Whao! Halleluyah!!

What gave Elijah such a confidence to declare that it is only by his own word? Not even by God's word. Elijah's confidence was in his location. Your location will determine your allocation and the kind of exploits you can perform in your journey into purpose. He said; "As the Lord lives, before whom I STAND...". Elijah was standing right! His location was also right! When you are standing right, you, I repeat, you alone is enough to deal with your adversaries.

Matt 18:18..."Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven...". Why it seems your word don't move your mountain is because you are yet to discover your location, that is, you are yet to know in whom you are standing.

Bro and Sister, I encourage you today to do a soul searching and find out where you are located. Can you be found in Him? When you are rightly located, you can call those things as be not as if they were. At your word, like Elijah, you can declare a thing, and it shall come to pass.

Declare it loudly; Lord, I seek a right standing in you!

Matt 14:28-30..."Then Peter called to him, Lord if its really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water. Yes, come, Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water towards Jesus. But when he SAW the strong wind and the waves he was terrified and began to sink".

My question to you this morning is; what are you fixing your eyes on? In the midst of all the trouble and challenges that you face in life, what you fix your eyes on for solution will determine if you are going to walk over those troubles of life or weather the trouble and challenges will sink you.

A lot of Christians are like Peter, they loose focus of Jesus, and they start to focus on the challenges around them. In vs 28, Peter was conscious of the presence of Jesus, he fixed his eyes on Jesus (not that the waves and turbulence was not present at the time) and just like Jesus, he walked upon the turbulent waters. Now, see vs 30, "But when he SAW the strong winds and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink". The moment he gave attention to the turbulence around him, he began to sink.

What you give attention to determines what responds to you. Fix your eyes on Jesus, not on the problem. The moment your eyes is taken off God, you will sink in the troubles of life. You have to look up to Jesus the author and finisher of your faith. A lot of Christians are so problem conscious, all they talk about is the problem but not the solver of the problem.

Fix your eyes on Him alone and you will see Jesus showing you the way to walk over the problem and challenges of your life.

Pray with me; Father, I fixed my gaze on you to ride upon every turbulent water of life!

Gen 32:22-24..."And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok, he took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had. Then Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day".

One of the greatest adversary of man is distraction, that is, lack of focus. If you are not sensitive in the spirit, distractions will take away your inheritance. A whole lot of Christians are in Church today but they are not focused to have an encounter with God in order to receive their blessing. They are busy with things that would not edify God. Some are busy with activities, gossip, and in fact, some are busy looking for sex in Church!

Jacob noticed that some things did not add up in his life, that he needed to focus on God devoid of any distractions. See what he did in our bible text for today. He sent away everything that could distract him from having an encounter with God. He sent his wives, children, servants and what he had over until he was ALONE. He was focused, resolute and determined to have a change of status, a change of name and a change of circumstances. He refused to let God go until he was blessed.

See vs 28 "And He said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob,but Isreal,for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed. Halleluyah!!
When last did you create time out to be with the Lord? Stop giving excuses,it is time to do away with every distractions around you and focus on God so you can receive the blessing that will propel you to the next level.

Jacob took a decision and his life never remained the same and through his lineage Jesus came into the world. You can take a decision today. Do away with those magazines, books, switch off that TV, stop back biting, gossips, do away with friends and associates that does not add value to your life, and get focused on God.

Pray aloud; Father, grant me the grace to do away with distractions and to be focus on you in jesus name!


Dan 3:24-25..."The King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, did we not cast three men bound in to the midst of the fire? They answered and said to the king; True, O king. Look! he answered, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the son of God".


Friend, when you stand for God, He will stand for you in times of trouble. The question is; who are you standing up with? There is power in standing up together. "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I would also be"-Matt.18:20.

When Christians stand together, in one mind and in one accord, God will always manifest and come down in His glory and power. I am sure the day of pentecost readily come to your mind here-Acts 2:1. Unfortunately, the devil is frantically fighting and waging war against the standing up together of God's people because the devil understand the power there in even more than a lot of christians.

What happens when the children of God stand up together is always powerful. Standing together in one accord by the children of God is a powerful tool to defeat and deplete the camp of the devil. With standing together, power will descend and the unbelievers will see the manifestation of His power and come to the knowledge of our God.

Hear what king Nebudchanezzar said; "...and the form of the fourth man is like the son of God". That is pure revelation, rhema at its best! Flesh and blood did not reveal that to the king. The standing up together of Shadrac, Meshac and Abednego brought the Son of God down even into the fire that the enemy meant for evil. Jesus will always appear where His children are standing up together in faith. Friend, are you going through a situation that seems like a fire on account of your standing up for God? Don't despair, the fourth man will appear for you in Jesus name!

Pray with me; As I stand for you, God let the fourth man appear for me!

Dan 3:16-18..."Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego answered and said to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand O king. But if not, let it be known to you O king that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the golden image which you have set up'".

There is someone out there that need encouragement today. Your standing up and standing alone without compromising is not in vain. I bless God for your life for taking the decision, and for making a choice like the three hebrew men, Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego to stand up for the King of kings.

I want you to know, that, it is by grace that you are able to stand, and it might be for a time like this. Believe me, a lot of people are weak, hurting and pauperised. These are the people you are standing up for God for. You are standing up for the downtrodden, widows, new converts, the poor, orphans etc. Your standing up is given them strength. They are drawing strength from the choice you made to stand and be counted. You have become a yardstick for them to measure their own work and walk in faith.

You can't afford to let them down, you can't take your hand away from the plough now. When they look up and see you still standing, they also draw grace, strength and encouragement to crawl out and climb out of the misery the devil have hitherto kept them. Now, they have the Confidence that if you can stand, unwavered, they too can stand.

Are you the one am writing to today? I congratulate you because you are making history. Souls are been touched because of the grace of God upon your life to stand and be counted.

Pray it aloud; Lord, I refuse to back down, I stand up for the weak and I draw grace to still stand for God!

Dan 3:12..."There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up."

It is pertinent to explain the background of these three Hebrew men in Babylon so you will appreciate and understand the choices they made to stand up and stand alone for God. They were king Nebuchadnezzars right hand men. It was not a joke to become Governors in a foreign land where they were supposed to be slaves. Here, they had the ear of the king, they live in official quarters, I guess they have official vehicles, staffs at their beck and call and all the apparatus and pecks of office. In short, they were important members of the kings cabinet.

By the kings decree, they have to make a choice between the enjoyment of the office they hold, the favour they enjoy from the king, or the choice of God's calling. I challenge you today, are you ready to be on the Lord's side when there is a conflict between the enjoyment and luxury of the position you have attained in life, or the call to stand for your faith and with God? Even if there is a possibility you will loose everything your present status confers on you, are u ready to stand up for God?

Brother and Sister, a whole lot in this generation (christians) have sold their souls to the devil because of monetary gratification & power. Where are the Shadrac, Meshac and Abednego of this generation? Christians are ready to compromise at the drop of a coin...what a pity! I want you to know that you don't stand up for God and be a looser. When you stand, what you do will stand the test of time because He is not a man that he should lie or the son of man that He should repent. God is still looking for remnants who can stand like those three Hebrew men. Are you one of them?

Declare it loudly; Father,nothing will take me away from making the choice to stand for you.

Dan 3:16-18..."Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego answered and said to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand O king. But if not, let it be known to you O king that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the golden image which you have set up'".

We are all familiar with the story of this three hebrew men. My question to you today is; what are you standing up for? These men stood up and stood alone not minding the consequence of the king's decree. A man that would serve God must be ready to dare the devil and stand alone even when others are ready to compromise. Check yourself; in what way have you compromised the gospel of the Lord when faced with dire situation that tend to question your faith in God?

If the three hebrew men had bowed down like others, their names would have gone into the dustbin of history. Rather, history was made because they stood up and they stood alone. The defining moment in the history of your life is that you are alive today, that is, there is an history for you to make. What do you stand for? If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything and everything.

Friend, I call you today, stand up for God just like Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego stood up and they became a reference point till today.

Pray with me; Father, I stand up for you, grant me the grace to still stand.

Acts 9:3-4..."As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?'"

Until you have an encounter with Him, the journey into destiny will be a fruitless one. Can you imagine, that until this encounter, Saul was experiencing destiny diversion because he was not doing what God purposed for him in life.

One of the devices that the devil uses to cage the children of God is to make you zealous for the things that look Godly, so that, you will think and feel you are in purpose. As far as a man is in that fruitless journey, purpose is denied and success will be like a mirage. But, the day you have an encounter with the giver of all good things, the journey of your life will change for good.

The moment you encounter God and the light of His word, your name will change, your status will change and you will get into the part of destiny. Saul became Paul, he also became an Apostle through a single encounter with the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Today, Paul is a reference point in everything pertaining to christianity, he performed great exploits just through one encounter!

It is time for your name to be heard abroad by the instrumentality of a single encounter with Jehovah. Your status is about to change because your destiny will receive a touch of heaven! Halleluyah!!

I declare upon you today, a change of name for good, a change of purpose into God's purpose for your life in Jesus name! Amen!


Tuesday, October 2, 2012


Acts 9:1-2 "Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the Synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem".

Often times, people have been zealous for evil purposes without knowing it themselves. Today, I want you to pause and check every activities or past time you are involved in to find out if they are truly part of your destiny. Saul was on an evil journey but he did not know. He was close to the highest authority in the land, thereby he was able to get a letter to persecute the followers of Christ. This is a serious destiny diversion but because of his high level of educational, religious and political attainment, he believed he was on the right track. Saul believed he was doing God's will. What a deception!

Bro and Sister, if you don't take time to check yourself to see if what you are doing right now is part of the purpose of God for your life, it is a dangerous thing. Your closeness to power and your achievement educationally, politically and economically is not a pointer that you are doing God's will. The devil often use this to deceive the children of God in a very subtle way especially if one is not sensitive enough to know that, it is not every journey that is ordained by God.

See vs.3a..."As he journeyed he came near Damascus...". Saul embarked on a fruitless journey to carry out evil intentions. Where is your own journey taking you to? Is your journey ordained by God or by the authority you answer to?

Pray with me; Father, I refuse to embark on a fruitless journey!
