GET SET FOR MIRACLES YOU DID NOT SEEK

Some months ago, we were having an appraisal meeting about our weekend service. There was a time during the service when the generator went off. It was not the first time it was happening. No one spoke about it because we knew we had a lot on our table. The head of the technical team just said, “Pastor, we would […]

DO NOT LET SHAME KEEP YOU BACK FROM OBEDIENCE

We were attending a conference. Right after the Word session, prayers began. It was so intense. At that moment, the Lord told me to walk to the altar and kneel. I hesitated for minutes. Why? How can I be all dressed up, and sitting in a special area in the church do such a thing? Why would I allow people […]

“SO I WOKE UP LATE AGAIN”

Just as we were about to head to church on Sunday morning, Danielle asked me, “Daddy, we have prayed right?” I said, “Yes we prayed at 5.30 am but you were still sleeping”. The next thing she said shocked me, “So I woke up late again”. I was awed. Her definition of waking up late was missing family devotion. Her […]

THE PRESSURE THAT THE BILLBOARD BROUGHT

The first time I would drive through a city and spot my image on a billboard was in 2016. As a young minister, the feeling was different. It felt like an accomplishment. I even wanted to keep a picture of it. The next time I would have such an experience was five years after. I got calls and messages from […]

BE FREE FROM THE TRAP OF “STRANGE MEN”

A “prophet” told Irewamiri that she was going to get pregnant before marriage. If it happens, she should not be afraid. Irewamiri had a good moment laughing in her heart. She knew that could never happen. Why? We knew we were never going to drop the standard. First, the standard of God has not changed. You can change the name […]

YOU DID NOT WASTE YOUR TIME

We were in a camp meeting and I sat in between two Pastor friends. My friends were moved to the front row while I was left in the same spot. They were given words of knowledge while I got nothing.  Thoughts began to come to me: “You are not that important”, “You wasted your time to come”, “When you will […]

DO NOT TURN A HEART GOD TOUCHED TO A “SPONSOR”

I woke up one morning to a message from someone that he was led to give to the ministry. When he eventually sent the seed, it was timely and it was quite heavy for the season we were in. What a joy it was. Then I made a mistake: Some months afterwards, we needed to get something done. I sent […]

BE GRATEFUL FOR A WIFE THAT ASKS QUESTIONS

That evening, Irewamiri asked me, “I wanted to confirm from you, why did you tell ___ that story while speaking to so and so?” I quietly explained. There are times that I would buy things (even for her) and after she has appreciated it, “She will ask me, ” My husband, where did you get the money for this?” Especially […]

THE METAL POLE, THE RAIN AND THE MARKS

I slept off while praying and I had a short dream that woke me up. I saw a metal pole with some rusty elements on it. Then it began to rain. After the rain, they came to carry off the pole. On the spot where the pole stood, there was a brown mark on the floor made by the interaction […]
