THE POWER OF FOCUS BY OLABANJI MAYOWA ANNE

THE POWER OF FOCUS BY OLABANJI MAYOWA ANNE

In our early sciences, we were taught that when we focus the rays  of the sun on a piece of paper, using a lens, it would get burnt off…that’s the power of focus.
   Focus involves concentrating ones whole energy and attention on a particular object of interest. Recently, I started  a training. As time went by, I  realized I wasn’t making much progress, this bothered me so much. I eventually discovered I had formed the habit of thinking of other things while learning. I was multitasking. Multitasking is not a bad idea but our minds can only process a thing at a time.  In order to be efficient and get maximum results, we have to give ourselves wholly to our activities. Little wonder Paul charged Timothy in the Holy  Scriptures”Meditate upon these things; give thyself WHOLLY to them that thy profiting may appear to all”   1tim 4:15(KJV). The more focused we are to our areas of interest, the more  obvious our improvement.
   Other activities outside our major activities are termed  distractions. Distractions are like flies, once they perceive the aroma of your meal, they find all means to get their share, you then shift focus trying to avoid them, until you avoid them, you cannot maximally enjoy your meal. Just like houseflies do not just eat, but are also agents of transmission of  cholera and other diseases, distraction also causes harm. Distractions causes errors, wastes efforts and hinders greatness.
  Prophet Elisha admonished the widow whose husband was a prophet to shut the door after borrowing the vessels. A lot could have happened if the door had been opened. Her neighbors could have called her to a gossip, they could have even mocked her, causing her to doubt the instruction she was given. 
  Identify your distractions. It could be a wandering mind, always fantasizing, it could be that friend of yours or your buzzing  mobile. 
   Focus aids growth and multiplicity. Take control of your life and your time. Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well. Be aware of the things that fill your mental space. Fix your mind and IGNORE THE FLY!
You are the change the world is waiting for, 

Let the change begin with you!

THE STORY: GOD CAN USE YOU BY REVIVALIST IYKE ORIAKU

THE STORY: GOD CAN USE YOU BY REVIVALIST IYKE ORIAKU

IT IS NOW THAT I AM BEGINNING TO MISS MY LATE FATHER …
HE SAW ME CARRYING INDIAN HEMP… HE SAW ME CARRYING GUNS… HE SAW ME CARRYING CHARMS AND ALCOHOL AND WOMEN… BUT HE DID NOT LIVE TO SEE ME CARRYING THE POWER OF GOD… WHY WILL I NOT CRY?

I have lost count how many times the police apprehended him because of me…

He was embarrassed in the neighbourhoods severally…
Sometimes, when he goes out to preach to people, they will insult him, and tell him: “Mr man, go and preach to your last born first before preaching to us…” and In that shame, he will come back…

I was known in all the gangs around the neighbourhood…

And popular among police cells in the area…

Suspended in some schools and expelled in others…
Almost every new academic section, my father will be taking me from one new school to the other, to beg them to re admit me… And sometimes, they will embarras him out of their offices, abusing him to go home and train his child very well…

Sometimes, on our way back, he will be shedding tears…
In his usual way, he will tell me: “Ikedi, are you enjoying how they are embarrassing me? How many more times will they keep insult me because of you before you change?” Tears will be rolling down his cheeks… (I am in tears here)
But then, those tears he used to shed never moved me… I was heading to a certain doom, yet, I thought anybody was stopping me from living my life…

All because ‘he hath shut their eyes that they cannot see and their hearts that they cannot under’… (Isaiah 44:16)
Among all my siblings in Nigeria, I was the only one who was not around his bed the day he was dying… I was in a ‘far country’, living a riotous life…
He called the names of 9 of my elder siblings, held their hands and blessed them… waiting for me to come, so that he will bless me… But I didn’t show up…

Before he died, he told those my siblings who were around this concerning me:

“Satan is using him now, but very soon, God will take over from Satan… And the whole world will see what God will use him to do in his generation… As his name goes Ikedichi, meaning: (God is powerful) the world will see that God has power…”

It was not long, on that Sunday morning, while singing a song, he died…

Many years after, I am no more carrying guns….

Many years after, I am no more carrying women…

I am no more carrying Indian Hemp and charms…

Now, that I am carrying Bible, where is my father?
When he was alive, parents used to warn their children not get close to me, so that I don’t teach them bad things … But now that he has died, parents are now bringing their children to me, to catch the Fire of God…

When he was alive, I was heading to hell and everybody knew it… But now that he has died, hell is losing occupants because of me…
This same hands that carried demonic sacrifices for Satan is now carrying the Power of God… The same hands that shot guns is now carrying God’s end time Fire… These hands have healed sicknesses… HIV… MADNESS… and all manner of diseases have died by these hands…
Men and women, boys and girls have shock these hands, and to the glory of God, they caught the Fire and went back and set their families and communities and campuses on Fire…

But where is my father now to see what God is doing with his last born…
Where is he to see that his last words on his dying bed concerning me are playing out now…

I am in tears here!

I saw the spirt of deaths walk pass me to kill others…

I saw bullets fired at me, miss me to hit others…

I escaped Graves dug to bury me alive, and someone else was thrown on and was buried alive…

Till today, I am surprised why I survived things many of my friends could not survive…
Friends, please, help me tell those who are saying that we are not doing well, that they don’t understand where we are coming from…
They say that God is not helping us… Because we have not rented halls and started using police excorts everywhere…

They say that if God is with us, why have we not started controlling crowd?

Why are we still struggling in missionary field…

Please, help me tell them, that God has helped us…

Don’t judge a man by where he is, Judge him by where he is coming from…

If you have arrived, congratulations sir…

But pray for us… And don’t laugh at us yet…

This is not the end of our story yet…

We did not enter ministry because of glamour…

Nobody promised us money or fame before we entered this work…
If you know where God brought us out from, you will know that we have gone too far from where we were…
The wealth will come… But whether they come now or later, we have already sold out… And the only option we have is forward ever…

We may not have preached in CNN, but we have preached in villages..
We may not have preached in the biggest churches in town, but we have being privileged to preach in markets squares…
We may not have started hanging out with the most known men and women in our time… But, for now, we are still trusting God that all these unknown men and women all around us now, will be known in no long time…
Sometimes, on phone, my mum will be shedding tears of joy… When she sees what God is making of to me today, she will be crying, saying: “I wish your father is alive now to see what God is doing through you…”
It breaks my heart too… But I know that he has joined the cloud of witnesses in Hebrew 12 verse 1,… And I know he is seeing everything am doing now…

I know he is reading all my Facebook posts…

I know he sees me while I minister in few churches where I am invited…

I know he is proud seeing me in missions field with poor and rejected boys and girls who have left voodoo to follow Jesus…

I know my late father is happy that I have dropped guns and o am now carrying the Power of God…
Sometimes, he will call Apostle Peter, and tell him:….” … That’s my boy healing the sick there… ” Haleluya!
Friends, we are on a revenge mission… To fight the program of hell over our generation…
To bring down altars… And prepare a breed that woll not merchandise the Power of God…
We have a mandate to raise men and women that will spread this revival Fire to the ends of the earth…

We cannot be begging for pulpits when God wants to make us pulpits…

We cannot join the bandwagon when many are zealously going to hell from their churches, because no one is telling them the truth. ..

Babylon cannot win this war in our time…

No… Not now that we are here sir…

Where was Babylon during the days of Evans Roberts?

Where was Jezebel during the time of William Seymore?

Where were they when John Hyde, Charles Wesley, Charles Finney, etc were here?

Why did all the powers in hell not stop the revival that hit Wales?

Why didn’t all the witches and wizards abort the revival that broke out on Azusa Street, which lasted for over 500 years?

And who is telling you that revival is impossible in our cities in Africa?

Where are all the who have not lost hope for a move of God in our time?

Where are all those who still have wet eyes, over the lies and forgeries and shame that has become the lot of the church in our time?

Where are all those who still believe that God will not leave us this way?

Where are those Who wants revival to hit their communities, in a way men have never seen before?

Where are those who are ready to pay the price?
Friends, it is time to cry with a loud voice…

“Oh that Wouldest rent the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at the Presence… “(Isaiah 64:1).
If these mortal men stopped hell from encroaching into their generation, why won’t we?

If Satan suffered injuries and set backs in their time, why should we be here and be watching him hijacking the Fire in our hands?
Friends, there are many prophecies hanging on our heads that must not waste…
I know that Some people are somewhere now, thinking that there will never be an army again that will rise up to pay the commensurate price for a mighty outbreak of revival in our time …
We owe the unborn generation one thing… NOT to carry the prophecies of a mighty revival in our time to the grave…

If God could use Jonathan Edwards…

If He could use Smith Wigglesworth,…

If he could use David Brainard, John Sung, John Knox, why will He not use us in our time?

We must pray sir…

To frustrate all the demons hijacking God’s plan over our communities…
That is why Paul told Timothy:” This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before thee, that thou by them mightest WAR A GOOD WARFARE ” (Timothy 1:18)

We cannot keep quiet …
How can men and women submit under us and still be bowing to native doctors? …
They can not be paying their tithes to us and still be seeing calamities every month…

Some of us have made a vow that no man will be close to us that will make hell…

No city that will have us in it that will not see a mighty revival…

In our time, Lord, pythons and cobras cannot triumph…

The evil trees that withered during the days of our fathers cannot resurrect in our days…

Men and women cannot come near us and not make news on the earth…
Wicked uncles in the village who did not go to school will not be controlling what we do in the city with our certificates…

We are ashamed of celebrating old and moribund flames…

Shadows have robbed us of More of You, Lord..

Now, we are out to grab the Substance!

And we are determined not to stop until our earths begins to yield it’s increase…

Friends, the time to joke is over…

If we must be relevant in our time, it’s time to go extra miles…

It is the extra miles that adds value on men…

Already, God is igniting the revival Fire here and there

And very soon, it will encompass all the cornubations and boulevards… Wherever men and women are Living and dying…

Where are all the men who are not ashamed to be laughed at?

Where are all those who are no more comfortable celebrating local victories?

Where all those who are hungry to break into new territories?

Where are those who are ready to pray for nothing less than for an unusual move of God’s Power in our communities?

Where are those who wants to raise the altar of revival in their hearts?
Man of God, the truth is that many men are women are somewhere now crying to God… Not for money or to be posted to bigger churches…

But for More of God…
And In the next few months, when they will begin to roar… Out from their hiding places …

And I tell you with all boldness sir… Kingdoms and thrones will hear their voices and bow…
That is the circle I want to belong now… If you know where to find men of such soul calibre, please, take me there…

Let us go and pray!

WHEN GRACE IS ABUSED BY IYKE ORIAKU

WHEN GRACE IS ABUSED BY IYKE ORIAKU

We didn’t put up this write up for FACEBOOK consumption … Please, don’t read …
“IF YOU PREACH THIS KIND OF MESSAGE IN MY CHURCH, I WILL NEVER INVITE YOU AGAIN… AND MY MEMBERS WILL WAIT FOR YOU AFTER SERVICE TO STONE YOU AND BEAT YOU UP …! ”

Go ahead sir and preach your message of grace… Yes! You are free!
But something is wrong, when after preaching it, and out of all the people that heard you, nobody made up their minds to shun his evil ways and come back to God …
After dishing out your ‘revelation’ and they clapped for you, with standing ovation, yet, thieves, ritualists, whores, witches and wizzards heard you and all of them still went back home without any repentance from their sins. …

No penitence, no sentience… No repentance and no revival …
After listening to you … Sisters carries their bibles and starts following the brothers back to their homes, to fornicate… Some brothers goes back home, increasing their zeal in fraud, rituals and adultery. ..

And we say we are preaching Grace!
I know that grace can forgive us after sinning over 100 times a day, but I also know that grace can empower a man not “to defile himself with the portion of the Kings meat…”
If Daniel made up his mind and did not sin under Moses’s law… If the 3 Hebrew boys stood against the decree of Nebuchadnezzar… If the daughters of Lot made up their minds even in a corrupt city like Sodom and Gomorrah and remained virgins … Even without living under GRACE, how much more we that are privileged to live in the time of GRACE?

Why are we preaching only the grace that forgives a man after sin and we will never preach the grace that empowers a man above sin?
I pity ministers who are still begging people to host them in their big churches. Especially those that wants their faces to be appearing on every picture in the streets, so that their rivals somewhere will know that they are doing well…
No wonder you must preach to impress them and their hell-bound members… No wonder you dare not preach about fornication… Stealing, unforgiveness and adultery. Because you want them to host you again. My brother, that is a cheap way to sell the oil on your head!

The only reason John the Baptist came in the Spirit of Elijah was because of the passion and cry heaven saw in the heart of Elijah …
God did not bring John in the spirit of Elijah to come and entertain people. Not because He wanted someone to pastor a mega church in town. But the mandate of John the Baptist was to bring spiritual revival to Israel…
To ” turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse” (Malachi 4:6)
Israel was ‘cursed’ for 400 years and above. The heavens above that nation was closed. Sir, their is no curse worse than when God has stopped talking to a people.
Yet, people were buying more cars, building more houses. Pastors were erecting beautiful cathedrals. Every Sunday in the synagogues, people were still giving testimonies of miracle jobs and marriages etc…
Brother, within that 400 years, churches did not go empty. More bibles schools were erected and yearly conventions were still being packed to capacity. But yet, God had left. He was not talking to His people again.
And people were going from choir seats to hell Fire… With their miracle cars, they were driving themselves to the bottomless pit. God was not happy that Israel was wallowing in spiritual darkness…
But there was nobody He trusted enough to send his spirit, back to Israel, except Elijah… And when John The Baptist came in his spirit, Israel had the opportunity to hear what men of God had denied them for ages…
Why do you wonder why people were trooping to the wilderness to listen to a man who had no international exposure, no spiritual father to recommend him to big pulpits and no Bible school degrees.
Because they were tired of the calamities the messages of ‘prosperity’ brought upon them. They were dying in the disgrace the message of ‘grace’ brought. For once, after 400 years, they heard from a man that told them that sin is sin, no matter who is sinning it, or no matter how popular and christanized it has become.
For once, Israel saw a man who could look into their eyes and tell them to repent or perish… For 400 years, all the messages they have been preaching to them were centered on: “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him for they shall eat the fruit of their doings…”
But nobody ever preached the following verse: “Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him” (Isaiah 3:10-11)
Their eyes were opened when that rugged boy, John stepped into the matter. They saw that they were few steps to hell Fire, even when they were committed in their churches.
No wonder, with no handbill, no poster, no TV advert etc, he was still running 3 times services. Military men and women. Captains of big industries. Big financial players. Governors of states. They were all ushers in his church. And yet, no matter their profiles, he did not change his message. Halaluya!

Oh! May God give us such men again in our time!
Because God has seen a man who was not afraid to lose men, He showed up and visited Israel once again.
Friends, nothing scares God away from a generation more than when a generation have decided to twist his Words, to fit into their rising profiles. The heaven over a nation can close when ministers decide to use the gospel to attend to their whims and caprices.
Let’s not be too sure that the heavens over our generation is not gradually closing. Because this is a generation that is getting popular through “another gospel”…
Peter, after preaching, they asked him: “What shall we do?” and Peter did not tell them to go and “prosper” . Because he knows that there are many prosperous men in hell…
He did not tell them: “to sow seed or pay tithe”. Because he knew that many people who were faithful in tithe, who were also seed Sowers have gone to hell Fire with their tithe and seeds cards complete…
He remembered the question Jesus asked few days ago when He was still on earth: “What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul in hell?”
With all boldness and without any fear of losing such opportunity to raise financial pillars for the new born church, Peter told them: “REPENT AND BE BAPTISED EVERY ONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS…” (Acts 2:38)

Oh what a boldness! Lord, please, give it to us again!


Brother, the First message that was preached in the church was REPENTANCE, not deliverance. It was not prosperity. It was not the message of how to get married. Or message of 50 ways to make money..
Unfortunately, Lord, your church in our time is running bankrupt of men like Peter, who will preach the message of repentance to this speeding – to – hell generation!
You sent us to Nineveh, but instead of preaching repentance, alas, we are now preaching seed time and harvest to men and women who have been doomed for destruction …
Even new born babies and animals in nations are waiting for us to tell them to repent from their sins. They are waiting for a preacher that will come and tell them about salvation…
Their sackloths are ready…. But we have told them to drop their sackloths and just sow quality financial seeds into our ministries, that their seeds will dispel the doom over their villages … What a terrible generation of preachers we are!
Oh Lord, are you not seeing us, as we are preaching to men and women in Sodom and Gomorrah, telling them that crying to God in brokenness is ignorance of what grace can do. That it is old school to soak your dress with tears when you come to revival program …
Lord, can You still use this generation that are now being irritated by the tears and cries of the penitent?
How can we still see revival when we have instructed our ushers and protocols never to allow people to come to our altars to stain our beautiful carpets with tears of repentance. But that they should allow those that comes to drop money?
Lord, the church is happy in my time, but hell is happier than us… Because we have edited the gospel in a way it will be easier to send more people to hell from church than from disco halls…
No wonder, Satan is giving us more money for more adverts, so that more people will keep trooping in… He is not afraid, because he knows that no matter all the night vigils and conventions we do, he will never lose any one in our churches?

Lord, the remnants are crying: “IF you cannot do something with us, please, do something without us”.
“Bypass our Bible schools and seminaries… Dump us inside our big cathedrals. Forget our T. V ministries.. Go inside the ghettos, raise prostitutes and drug addicts. Fill them up with the hunger for righteousness. And use them Lord to do a quick work in our time. We need a shaking”.
The church in our time has lost relevance, because we are no more preaching REPENTANCE.

And the pews in our churches are my witness…
The unseen Hundreds and thousands of people that sat on them 20 years ago are crying out loud to God: They are telling God…
“This is not what we use to hear from this same pulpit 20years ago! When did they stop making altar calls in this church, instead they are raising funds? ”
They are crying and asking God after every sunday: “Why are they now preaching to raise funds every Sunday and not to raise soldiers of the Cross?”
“Where is that Power that used to convict dreaded sinners even only when choristers starts singing few chants? Chronic ritualists used to rush out, shouting for mercy and before the message finishes, people would have filled everywhere, crying for mercy.”
Today, this generation of preachers say people should stop shedding crocodile tears. That the church should be a place where people should come in a forget their sins… Not where people should come and be crying for their sins…

And we say they are preaching grace!
My brother, I don’t understand how this wind of shame is succeeding so much in out time…
Something has left the church. Some churches are as good as social clubs. We are just enjoying ourselves. The church has lost that thing that used to separate us from the Jebussites and the Amorites. All these jamborries we are doing now is just a form of godliness. We know that we are denying the Power thereof…
When a pastor will set a fellow pastor up with females members, to blackmail him, so that the man of God will be disgraced… And all his members will run away and join his own church…
When a pastor will employ people to be faking miracles for him in crusades. How can that same pastor look into their eyes tomorrow and tell them to repent?
How many of our young beautiful sisters still believe that there are genuine men of God again? Because of what they are suffering in the hands of men of God? …

I want you to know the reasons behind this sudden outbreak of this message of ‘grace’.
A cancer doctor can never be tired of seeing people crying inside his hospital. Any week his patient does not cry of the pains of the painful injections, it’s either, that patient is already dead.
If the message of grace in your mouth does not break sinners down, to see their eternity in hell Fire without Christ, then, everything is wrong…
Jesus said that it was expedient for the Holy Spirit to come. Not to come and entertaining sinners who are headed to hell. He did not come to promise happiness to wicked men and women who have no soft spot for Fairplay and justice.. .
He didn’t come to make the young girls in our churches, to keep sleeping with all the married men they can see anywhere and still come to be lifting their dirty hands to the Lord, all because we are in the era of grace…
Jesus said: “and when he is come, he will reprove the world of SIN, and of righteousness, and of judgements:” (John 16:8)
If the Holy Spirit you carry is only to make people to rush out to drop money on our pulpits but to go back with their diabolic charms, then, you need a another encounter. It means that you have lost Him. And urgently, you need a revival…

Stop using the message of ‘grace’ to cover our disgrace.

You are disgracing the Name of Jesus!

My brother, don’t listen to what they have told you about ‘grace’..

The grace that cannot empower you to live above sin is leasing you to hell…

Yes, God will forgive, but, it is making you a slave to Satan…

The only thing that empowers Satan in your life is sin…
When you are living in sin, you are partnering with the powers that are frustrating you…
Satan dribbled you out from the church where they would have told you the truth, that will set you free and kept you in a place where they are comfortable with your sinful lifestyles…
If you have a church where the pastor is quickening your spirit to live against sin, then, you are blessed…

Grace is not only to forgive.. It is also to empower…

Grace can break that addiction… Grace can take care of that chronic habit…

Grace can help your prayer life and Bible study life…
Let no preacher, popular or unpopular sell to you the gospel of falling and falling and never getting mature in Christ, because of their versions of grace …

That’s the difference between the christians in our time and the Christians in the 70s, 80, and 90s …

That’d why you have been in church for long, yet, small demons are still playing with your destinies…

Because they are selling to you a version of grace that is making you a spiritual imbecile…

Brother, you must thank God for that pastor that is teaching you how to live above sin…

That is the greatest help any man can offer you…

Because sin is a reproach…
Some of us have made up our minds that this Truth we heard from the beginning, we will preach and teach it till the end…

We are trusting God that this revival of lies will not flourish in our time!

The original pentecostal flame we received from our fathers will not quench in our hands…

They say we are proud and arrogant … And they are not wrong…

We are ‘proud’ … But they don’t understand that something is feeding our pride…

The memory of the church we saw in the days of our fathers is feeding our ‘arrogance’…

Don’t blame us… Blame our memories…

Don’t be angry with what we say…

When you come close, we will tell you what we saw…
There is something we saw in the days of our fathers that we want to see again in our days…

How can our children grow up to inherit all these lies and forgeries?

Brother, we are too proud to bow these knees before any shrine, to give us power to gather crowd…
Yes, we are too proud to be online everyday, begging people to host us, so that we will come and lie to their members, raise money from them, share the money with our hosts, leave their members on their ways to hell and run away…

No sir! We are too big for that…

Ask those of them in Babylon, they will tell you that we are not their kind…
If John The Baptist could function with the Spirit of Elijah and yet, he brought about an incredible spiritual awakening that shook the whole nation of Israel, what about we that are now housing the Holy Spirit?
Who is telling you that this army God is raising Will not be able to save the church from the hands of these ‘apostles of another gospel’?
Brother, be getting ready… Because, there will soon be a mighty move of God’s power.. Such that eyes has not seen…
God helping us, I am sure that we will lead the church in our time back to Jeremiah 6:16…
And perhaps, it will please God to show us mercy and grant us a genuine revival once again…

Let’s pray!

LIFE IS NOT GOVERNED BY MIRACLES. STOP CHASING SHADOWS BY DR. BIEN SUFFICIENT

LIFE IS NOT GOVERNED BY MIRACLES. STOP CHASING SHADOWS BY DR. BIEN SUFFICIENT

Let me start by saying, I believe in miracles. I believe God can intervene in the affairs of men. But as beautiful as miracle might be, life was not meant to be governed by miracles. Life is meant to be governed by principles. There are basic principles of life that when obeyed and put into practice things begins to work in your favor.

Life is meant to be 98 percent principles and 2 percent miracles. But unfortunately, most believers today, especially African Christians have abandoned the 98% principles of life in chasing the 2% miracle. Little wonder the continent is at the level it is today.

We have not lived life based on the principles that govern life. It is only in Africa you see people going to fasting and prayers for financial breakthrough and believing God for a miracle and yet are not ready to work. Some will sow seed to be a millionaire in a year’s time, while they do not have a job, business or any tangible product or services they are rendering.

Everything in life has to be spiritual for this set of people. This is ignorance at its peak I must say. I once head of a diabetic patient who had a diabetic foot ulcer that was degenerating. Instead of the family taking this man to the hospital for proper treatment, they decided to take him to church saying that it was a spiritual matter. 

They left this man in the church for months and were praying until the sore deteriorated so badly that he lost his whole leg and almost lost his life before they took him to the hospital.

People have totally lost their minds because they have refused to put their brains to work. They want something from nothing and the easy way out. That is the main reason why these fake pastors are able to take advantage of their greed and laziness. How else will you explain a pastor telling his members to eat grass and they eat. People are ready to do anything to get a miracle rather than follow the principles of life.

God has given us all that pertains to life and a brain to put to active service to Him and humanity at large. God will not do for you what you can do for yourself. So fold your sleeves and get to work. Stop running after men of God for miracles. Everything you need to succeed in life is in you. When you have done all you can, when you have used all the resources God has given to you, when you have gone the extra mile only then do you qualify for a miracle. Because when you do all you can, then God will do for you what you cannot do.

If you will rather push your responsibility to God by not working but rather praying for a miracle, be ready for a life of perpetual poverty. For how long do you want to run from church to church, from one prophet to another? Wake up from that slumber my friend and begin to apply the principles of life to your daily living and you will begin to see results.

Don’t let anyone deceive you. You cannot live all your life depending on miracles, except you want to be a failure in life. Why? You might ask. Because God did not create life to be lived on miracles but on principles and He will not change His principles just to suit you. So if you want to live a successful and fulfilled life, pursue principles not miracles.
Get your brains to work, and you will be embraced by success.

Birthday Wish From Akinpelumi Kolade

I would like to start by quoting some lines from pastor olawale Abaire’s word which are;
1. ” Inspiring words, his Motivational Speeches and his Words of Spiritual Re-awakening.”

2. ” You can’t be with him without contacting something Beneficial for your life and Destiny.” 
I met this young man of God in our Finals and i was inspired by His words (filled with confidence in Christ, encouraging) and most importantly His prayer life when leading our FYB prayer meetings will definately inspire one to cling to God!….. 
Then to the second quote, it says you can’t come in contact with Him and you won’t Gain something useful for your Life and Destiny…..I affirm those words, YES!!! The life of this man is one of the few young men who motivated me to CHASE after GOD like Never before….
You might be say, that is the spiritual Realm….well let me prove you wrong by sharing this testimony about the physical impact…
One faithful weekend, we were playing RCF (staylites vs Freshers) and as the captain, the referee told me we had 5mins left, and bro David was like Senior player; “We can do these together” (in my mind, I was like…wetin dey do this pastor, here na prayer meeting) but thank God I eventually yielded to his advice and he supplied the Assist for me with which I scored the Winning goal! 
It wasn’t just Winning that was my Joy but he taught me so many lessons in one day under a few minutes (5mins to be precise)….

1. Never look down on anyone. 

2. If only you’ll try, there is nothing impossible. 

3.Learn to Trust at least someone as much as you trust yourself in some situations. 

4. No man is an Islander. 

5. Every man you meet en route Success has His unique contribution to your Success. 

6. We both shouldered the Responsibility of the team and God helped us out, meaning God can use a few number to do what should have been done by the Masses. He uses the foolish things to confound the (supposedly) Wise( brilliant, talented, gurus….etc)…..
So with all this lessons learnt under a short period of time, its not only pertinent for me to celebrate a rare and priceless gem but its a must to join the host of heavens in celebrating God’s Own General in person of Pst David Olawade…….Happy Birthday SIR…..More Grace Boss, brother and Friend!!!

Birthday Wish From Olawunmi Temitope

I remember when I met you , I was wowed by your wealth of intelligence, I spoke to you and you accepted me as your sister. When ignored you called, when I forgot you remembered, when I needed to vent you listened and encouraged. I’m sure I am not the only one that has things like this to say , which means you are a blessing to many. Which means you are an icon to your generation. 
My heart blesses you, and I have an assurance that your path will continue to shine brighter and brighter till you become a light that ignites uncontrollably. Your articles have been inspiring and I am proud of you. Happy Birthday Mr Olawade David, you’re a walking epistle . I love you loads
