“YOU WILL OUTGROW HIM”

I was speaking to a dear sister some years back. I noticed her spiritual growth as her Pastor and I was excited about it. Every Pastor loves a growing sheep! I told her the honest truth about her courtship. She had been talking about the man in some previous conversations. I told her, “Can I tell you this? The pace […]

YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LATEST INFO

Around 3 am that morning, I woke my wife and said to her, “Our travelling plans just changed. We head straight to so and so place”. I told her I picked that impression just now as I prayed. She agreed. Upon arrival, it did not take up to an hour to know why the Lord spoke to my heart about […]

GRANDPA’S WALL-CLOCK

We love our holidays at Akure. It was one of the high points of the year for us. The ambience of Vining College has not faded a bit. There was however a mystery about Grandpa’s wall clock that we needed to solve. Every hour, Grandpa’s wall clock with its huge pendulum will open up and a bird will come out […]

SITTING WITH THE AUTHOR

We were visiting with my spiritual father. At the family devotion in the morning, we use the devotional written by him. At that moment, I realised that there was a huge difference in reading what he wrote and sitting with the author himself as he shared and blessed us. Friends, you can read the Bible without knowing the author of […]

“WHEN SUBMISSION IS TESTED…”

About four years ago, I was attending the ministers’ seminar of my spiritual father’s annual convention. The morning sessions were just amazing. As we stepped out of the auditorium one of the mornings, Bishop spotted me and said, “Son, wait to see me”. I went ahead to the waiting hall of the Ministry’s Secretariat and I waited. I waited for […]

THERE IS NO COMFORTABLE TIME

When we got into the city to commence ministry, I had to keep an appointment. We needed a property to use. As I sat on the chair in that office, I knew I had to share the good news. I did after a struggle. As a matter of fact, I shared the gospel before I mentioned my request about the […]

THE DAY DADDY FAINTED

My parents were classmates in the tertiary institution. During the examination, my father took ill right in the hall. He had his work tools as a Fine Arts student but in his words, “I just kept looking at the paper before me. I had gone blank. The stress had taken its toll”. He was almost collapsing when some of his […]

CHURCH IS NOT HERE

One of my teachers back in the secondary school saw me as I drove out of a supermart. He told me that he had sent one of the men in the church office to me. I wondered why. He then told me the reason. We have a huge banner in front of our church location that says, “Church is not […]

WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO DROP?

I was stepping out of my office. I was scheduled to be in a small group meeting outside the church. Danielle noticed that I was about going out. She wanted to tag along. From that moment, anything I told her to do, she did it willingly. I told her to wear her sandals properly, she did it fast. I asked […]

THE DEPOT TAUGHT ME A LESSON

While we prayed around midday in the church office, the Holy Spirit impressed it on my heart to think of the activity of a depot by our side. I observed for some minutes. The Holy Spirit said, “Do you see cars coming with crates of empty bottles? Do you realise that they leave loaded? Do you know that most of […]
