WHO (WHAT) DO YOU KNOW?

A set of seniors in secondary school decided to punish my friends and I. Unfortunately for them, we ran into a teacher that liked us when we were coming back from their classroom. We narrated what happened and he sent for them. He told them that we knew things that they did not know and they should never lay hands […]

THEY HAD NO IDEA

My father gave me the chance to preach at the Saturday Night dedicated to Youths at the Church Convention many years ago. I shared about my teenage struggles with lust, porn and all others. The fact that I was born in a Godfearing home did not make me suddenly Godfearing.Then I turned and asked my parents, “Did you know I […]

“WILL YOU ALLOW ME TO MARRY YOUR BROTHER?”

As that priceless soul sat in front of me that day, I heard those words: “Sir, I feel nothing. I have done a lot of things wrong in my life”.From getting sexually involved with close relatives to having an abortion. She had been through all. I began to talk to her about God’s love emphasizing that in Christ, her past […]

“SON, PRAY FOR YOUR FUTURE WIFE”

I was alone in the church office. I had made up my mind to throw all I can into the work of the ministry. After the break-up, my energy for ministry work tripled. Some few months into this episode, God broke the ice one morning. He said, “Son, spend some time praying for your future wife”. I argued and kicked […]

“MUMMY, I AM AWAKE”

As a small boy, I had a standard ritual for waking up (don’t laugh at me): I would call out each morning, “Mummy, I am awake”. Mummy comes to sit on my bed. I climb on her back. She turns around and I glide off her back. That’s how the day starts (don’t feel jealous if you did not have […]

MUMMY TAUGHT ME THIS

In the middle of the night, the door of my room opened. In the darkness, I could pick the figures of my dad and mum as they strolled to my bedside. Daddy tapped me gently. I was already awake. “Your mum has something to tell you”. With that sweet mother’s voice, she said, “My son, I am sorry”. Earlier in […]

THE RAT IN A BUCKET

I was preparing a teaching about how Elimelech went to Moab and got trapped in his needs. I needed to use the restroom. As I got into the toilet, I noticed a small rat playing in a bucket. It was nibbling at some tiny things in it. It was obviously enjoying itself. I carried the bucket and it kept nibbling […]

CHILDREN CAN PRAY TOO

My siblings and I hated it while growing. As young as I could remember, Mum would get to your bedside between 5 am and 5:30 am. She will give you a gentle tap, sprinkle water on your face and wake you up to pray. At times, I sleep off again and the “rod and the staff” comfort me while the […]

WHEN DADDY CAN PRAY

I could not keep it to myself anymore. I drove all the way to Dad’s office and confessed to him I was in love with a young lady. He asked for her name and description. He kept smiling. We prayed together and trusted God for His leading. Dad did not say a word.Two days after my wife said “Yes” to […]

SOME DOORS ARE NOT YOURS

I was putting in some fuel in the generator at home. Some flies kept hovering over the source of light I had with me.Just as I finished putting in fuel and I wanted to cover the tank- one of the flies flew directly into the tank.Well! I simply covered it.As I turned away, the Holy Spirit whispered to me,“It is […]
