“UNCLE, CAN YOU EXCUSE ME? I WANT TO DRESS UP”

My little niece was 4 years old then. I was having a chat with her mum and elder sister when she stepped out of the bathroom. She had a towel around her little body.Once she stepped into the room and saw me (I had not even noticed her presence), she said with her four-year voice but with the confidence of […]

CARRY YOUR PASTOR ALONG

Once the Lord revealed to me that Irewamiri was the woman to marry, I knew I had to seek the counsel of my Spiritual Father. I sought an appointment with him. When I eventually saw him, he gave me life-saving counsel that positioned me to make great decisions about marriage. If you are a child of God, do not live […]

DON’T EAT IT!

As we left the meeting that night, I was given a pack of food. By the time I checked out what was in it, the temptation began. On a norm, I do not eat late at night but when I saw it was a pack of small chops, I began to tell myself that there could be an exception to […]

DO NOT BUILD RESISTANCE

As I got to the car that morning, I picked a prompt in my spirit man to pray. I said a word of prayer and got into the car. A prayer burden was already on me as I drove for the trip. I tend to drive faster when I am praying behind the wheels. At a point, just before a […]

THE BLESSING OF ALL

After our trainers gave us the instruction that we should look for land, we commenced a search. While searching, we went to ask for a piece of land that we saw. The owner said, “Pastor, that’s too small for what you intend. We have another one somewhere close by. Check it out and let me know if you would want […]

GRANDPA GAVE ME MY OFFERING

We were leaving Grandpa’s house late in the evening. We went to pick Danielle and Olive. As we stepped out, Grandpa gave both of them some mint notes as new year gifts. Olive would rarely surrender money to you. The first shock I had was that she handed it over to me in the car and the next moment she […]

BURNING COALS

My father spent the early days of his life assisting his father on the farm. He mentioned that anytime they were working on the farm and they need to eat roasted yam, they would seek a farm that had burning coal from firewood. They would go get the burning coal and bring it back to their farm. It was not […]

DO NOT UNDERRATE LAUGHTER

My Mum taught me this spiritual lesson with her life: Mum lost her sight many years ago. In the early days of losing her sight, she wanted to sit down in her office. It was a chair with two arms. She felt the arm of the chair to get the right spot but unfortunately, she forgot to touch for the […]

OFFENCE AND WITHDRAWAL IS A WAR STRATEGY

Sometimes ago, the devil fired an arrow of offence through a situation into my heart. One of the things he began to suggest was that “I should stop wasting my time following my Spiritual Father and my Trainers”. He suggested that I should focus on the work alone and not bother myself. It was a tough season. I entered into […]

DO NOT SLEEP OFF ON THIS JOURNEY

In my second year at the university, I took a cab from Ibadan to Ile-Ife. Cabs are comfortable. I slept off somewhere along the way. I woke up just as we got to the campus gate. As the car parked and I noticed we were at the gate, I was excited. I got out of the cab, picked my bag […]
