Claim it!

In ancient Greek mythology, songs were sang about a little farm boy who ‘spoke’ his way to the throne through faith and obedience, he was quoted several times saying, “if only you have faith small as a mustard seed, surely you will move mountains”.
With that understanding you realize that you can’t find what you’re not looking for and you’ll only attain what you believe in, so speak it to existence and claim it.

Blessings to you💕

Vessels!

Stories revolve around about what demons are and what they could actually do using people. The bible describes humans as vessels, a vessel according to the English dictionary is defined as a container, or an ornament for storing things. If this is so that means that who we appear to be in the physical doesn’t really matter, what matters is what is contained within us. Take for example a jewelry box, it is called a jewelry box because of what is inside of it that’s to say that if you were to replace the jewelry with say mechanical tools it will hence be called a tool box.
Now it is written that we are all created in the image and likeness of God, why then do we have some people behaving like devils? Something most of us don’t realize is the fact that God created us as free moral agents, This is to say that we have the will to choose who we believe in. Often, we ask why God wouldn’t just put an end to evil, surely just by uttering the words “evil be deceased!!!” it will be so. but that cannot be the case because it will cause a shift in paradigm however, God is not a man so you can’t predict him. I came across a book recently that I clearly was not supposed to and I read about an ancient doctrine of formulas “spells” to reincarnate old time religion, control weather, people and even communicate with the deceased, Being the very inquisitive person I was eager to find out more, then a notification popped up on my computer and phone simultaneously and it told me to reevaluate my will to inquire about this subject. like having a notification pop up on my phone when i was only making use of my laptop wasn’t creepy enough it then said you are adviced to put a hault in to this research but I can proceed at my own peril. Guys! This is not a joke, there are certain books that should never be read and knowledge that should never be assessed. the “necronomicor”, “777 and other qabalistic writings”, “the seven book of moses”, “the equinox” are just a few of those books.
Demons are real, evil is real but God is also real, it is essential you identify with a spiritual being (God precisely). I read in one of those books that it is very possible to possess an individual and control their actions and thoughts, rememberwe talked about being vessels earlier? Now what distinguishes a good person from a bad person is what is contained in them. If you’re an empty vessel I.e you’re neither for God nor the devil you’re prone to be possessed by a spiritual controlling entity.
Revisit the creation story in the book of genesis, we were moulded by God (empty vessels) then he breathed into our nostrils (possessed us with his own life) hence the reason we’re said to be in God’s image. Also notice how the bible describes our body as a temple for Christ? If your temple is not occupied by Christ it’ll be occupied by something else, and that’s why most people find themselves doing things they mostly don’t want to do.
We cannot be possessed by two different entities, if you have God dwelling in you there’s no room for evil to come in, and if you have evil dwelling in you there’s no room for Christ to come in and that’s why it’s important to be “born again” because during that process you renounce the devil that dwells within you and accept Jesus to come inside you.
This is why most times i narrate to people, Your battle is not with people, they are just vessels, your battle is with the devil inside them, so instead of fighting and screaming and trying to speak sense into them’ pray for them because most people don’t even know that they are not doing the right thing.
Blessings to you all☺💕

The Mad Couple

During my service year in the south eastern part of Nigeria, a narrative by Ayodele Adeoye was always referenced about a man named SAMADE, samade was a graduate of applied physics from a Nigerian university before he ran mad, he was a fan of every villager for his abilities and talents, Abilities and talents madness could not snatch away from him. His dancing steps and melodious voice couldn’t be ignored by passersby. He sings and dances without musical instruments yet those who listened and watched him wished he was not mad for the ecstasy he gave to them. His love life and marriage to Cynthia, another mad woman in the village was an envy of many couples. Samade and Cynthia had lived together in a self built self-containe under the popular bridge at Orile junction for 22 years. There were several times the villagers saw them quarreling but no one knew how they settled their differences. Unfortunately Samade and Cynthia do not speak the same language. While Samade was from the western parts of Nigeria, Cynthia was from the Eastern part of the country. How they seemed to communicate so efficiently struck me as a mystery but They lived together for 22 years without a long separation. How they consented to live as couple and had 3 children is a riddle no one is yet to solve. They lived under same roof in quote, they had no source of income other than begging, they have no common sense, lacked counselors, never attended marriage classes, yet they lived together for 22years uninterrupted. Samade and Cynthia were the Romeo and Juliet of their world, a perfect match to a fault. Mad but proud of each other and their union. They were seen severally kissing, hugging, caressing and sharing romantic moments together in the village. They shared all things in common, they bathed together, played together, ate together, entertained their guests together, fought together, smiled together etc. Samade and Cynthia were an epitome of uncoordinated romantic folks. If they were not mad, they would have won the best couple of the year’s award. The lesson in Samade and Cynthia’s romantic story is this; “If the insane can sustain a romantic relationship, the sane should be able to do better”. Unfortunately, most sane couples with common sense cannot stay together as husband and wife for 10 years without divorce or separation. Yet they have access to the good things of life. They have good shelter, good food, sound education, spiritual helps, finance etc. The story of this mad couple inspired me alot as it was really thought provoking. I realized that living in the moment was what made this couple stand out, these days people carry unrealistic ideologies of how they want their relationships to be and when is doesn’t go the way they plan it leads to a breakup or a massive fight or cheating. Unfortunately, Samade died on 24th of July and Cynthia died too on 3rd September of the same year of depression and loneliness. Their children were adopted by 3 different families whose lives were inspired by the romantic life of the mad couple. They were mad together They lived together They died together If the mad couple can do it, you can do it better, I can do it better because I can do all things through Christ and so can you (phil4:13)

Man and Humility 

     For a man to discover his vast self, for him to perceive within the Indwelling God requires great humility. Those to whom this revelation has come often have undergone the greatest suffering and privation before the disobedient ego would be brought to it’s knees. No man perceives the kingdom of heaven unless his eyes are open to the infinite oneness about him. Until he sees his kinship with each living thing, he cannot boldly declare his own divinity in complete selflessness. Many there are who have proclaimed themselves supermen, by virtue of certain talents, certain intelligence, certain acquisitiveness or ruthlessness. But always their reign has been short-lived. Life’s law is to bring to his knees the man who lives with a bloated ego. Find such a man and observe the fearful burden he carries. He always must be proving to himself that he is great, accomplished, superior, while in his heart he knows that failure and defeat await him. This terrible spectre often drives such men to suicide, to other less obvious forms of self destruction. Yet they might turn from their false god anytime they choose. They have only to accept the DIVINE into their lives, to reject all notions of themselves as particular and superior, to be humble in the face of their maker and in all things identify themselves with him. Then peace and true power comes.

    It is not just a queer quirk of fate that many rich men have given away all they possessed, They simply have sought to get rid of vanity by getting rid of possessions and thus to admit God into their lives. The Hindu fakir sits all day staring at the sun, maintaining a single position for days, even weeks, against terrible pain and fatigue, for only one thing, Humility. For when a man dispossesses vanity, God is free to enter into his soul, to possess it, to freely use it. All strain, all tension, all struggle, all anxiety and fear then disappear. When a man achieves humility, he places his life in the hands of the supreme, attains to peace and serenity, and when you successfully accomplishthat level of divinity everything automatically begins to connect.

#NOTEtoSELF

Here’s an amazing story shared by an amazing person about how her life went from sour to sweet and worrying didn’t play any tangible role in it.

    During a coaching section we held on the blog last night, somebody shared a story of how she had a hard time paying her tuition, she had to work in a home for aged people, clean up their mess because they couldn’t use the toilet, she worked several jobs trying to raise money for each semester, and every time she paid she immediately had to start worrying about how to pay the next one, she barely had time to study because she was too engrossed working to get the money for studying, she was caught in a loop, not studying, working to pay for studying. She thought so little about how her future was going to unfold. A lot happened and today (9years later) she’s doing so good that she’s running a free education program for kids in primary and secondary education levels, and she told me quote ” i wish i had spent the time i spent worrying on working on myself I probably would have been better than I am right now, it was completely irrelevant”. we’ve all experienced this in one way or the other, worrying over a thing and moments later you’re completely over it. One day (soon) your future self is going to write to your present self saying “hey, we turned out okay, you worried unnecessarily☺” I know it’s physically impossible to not worry, but don’t do it at the detriment of your peace and happiness. There is a level of “worrying” that motivates you to think about a solution and there is the level that makes you quit and give up, you need to find and strike a balance so it won’t stop you from having the best life possible now!.

Queen of kings

     Most females misinterprete the idea of Feminism/equality. In real sense it might be different but most females get too concerned with fighting to be king, or trying to be the man of the house or the man of the hour or doing what a man can do better, what’s wrong with being the queen? The woman of the house? The woman of the day? You get so focus on trying to be a man that you blatantly ignore being the best version of a woman. Being a woman is about as hard as it gets and most men can’t do half of what y’all can do (well I know for a fact that I can’t carry a hot pot off the gas, how in the world do women do that😱). You don’t need to try to be a man, there’s no reason a woman should tell another woman to “man up” There are alot of male sensitive phrases out there but you have no reason to subscribe to them, you don’t have to take on the role of a man to validate yourself as strong, resilient and independent. I hear alot of females adding “king” to their names like (king_Diana) or saying things like “I’m the man of the year”, is there anything wrong with (queen_Diana)? Why don’t you want to be the woman of the year? The world has revered men as strong and women as weak and you’re playing right into it, yet you say women are under-appreciated when even you don’t appreciate yourself enough. Women give birth to kings for crying out loud, its just like a tree saying its fruits are more significant than it is. Look at it this way, an Apple or an Apple tree which is more productive?? ( I feel like I just scolded myself). 

      I admire my mum alot, you will too if you get to know her, she raised my siblings and i alone and she didn’t merely do it, she did it with class and vigour, we lacked absolutely nothing growing up, she instinctively surpassed the role of father and mother in our lives, and all these time she never validated herself once by saying I’m king or I’m as manly as can be. I’ve been requesting she conducts an exclusive interview with me on “how to be a super woman” but she refutes, only thing she tells me is “there’s not a particular way to be the best female you can be, just be the W(inner), O(utstanding), M(agnificent), A(rticulate), N(atural) in the room”. I’m still pushing to get that interview with her though lol.

   Certain things are the way they are for a reason and Personally, I think it’s hard enough to be a woman, why try to add the roles of a man for validation. Did you know that the queen (♕,♛) is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, being able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. That goes to say alot in real sense, among which is “you have the power to do absolutely anything”!!

    My little sister plays basketball (she was team captain in high school), sometimes when she makes a nice shot over me she boasts by saying stuff like I’m the king of basketball, no guy can mess with me when I’m with the ball, I’m king and the court is my kingdom! (Geez, so much noise for just one lucky shot). But I tell her, how bout being the queen of basketball? Will that make you any less better than you are? matter of fact, if you claim to be a queen and you defeat men in basketball doesn’t that prove a point in favour of the female gender? (She says yes bro, you have a point! But I’M STILL KING!) I guess that’s how deep the stereotype belief has eating into the younger generation. If every female becomes king who’s gonna be queen? Aren’t you wiping out your own existence singlehandedly? I’ve never heard a man say I’m queen, or acclaim any feminine prowess, have you?

     I guess my message here’ mostly to females is “concentrate on being the best woman that you can be, just like Maya Angelou said “you alone are enough, you have nothing to prove to anybody”. No need to validate your strenght by picking up male attributes, roles or titles. Wear your Tiara with pride And value yourself alot!! And men, I guess we should all just be gender sensitive especially with words, I mean” why can’t we all be feminist?.

The Picture Message

     Thought of another great way to get a message across and this popped into my head, read it, sink it, screenshot it and enlarge it if you must but make sure to always profess it to yourself daily.

The Encounter 

   Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough, not perfect enough, you don’t fit in, you have a horrible past? Well hey, You’re not alone. You’re far from being alone!!

      I had a friend one time, who was as “in the world” as could be, I mean she was so addicted to drugs and alcohol and everything wrong. All through our college years she was always in detention and facing expulsion for being caught with some sort of narcotics or some act of indecency. I was opportuned to bump into this girl a while back and she was changed, and I mean she was a deep devoted Christian, so I asked her what happened, why the sudden interest in religion, you knew about God all this while but never followed him, why now? Her reply was remarkable.

   She said, I had what you call “an encounter”, it was very brief and in that encounter “something said to me” it’s time!! She went on to narrate to me that she really didn’t understand the encounter but this wasn’t your average “I was dreaming and something said” story you hear all the time, this was real, I was conscious of it, it wasn’t supernatural, it was very natural and I knew it was a divine utterance. 

   But how would you know a divine utterance if you never really knew God I asked, and she told me “i knew about God, everyone does but they’re often too depressed, too sunk in and too uninterested to believe in him, but when it’s your time believe me it’s your time.

  You see, God has a plan for everyone of us, we are not just existing in an eternal bliss of nothingness, living by chance, we are all characters in a play God is orchestrating, we all play significant roles.

   Now i want you to imaging a scenerio, if you were a hard core, big time Alcoholic and people are trying to get you to stop drinking and mr A comes and gives you reasons why you shouldn’t drink, how its bad for your health and what it might result you to doing (but bare in mind that Mr A has never really been a drinker before, so he has no idea what it feels like to combat the addiction). Then Mr B comes along and gives you the same advice but is also able to relate he’s own personal experience to you and also give you pointers to how he combated his own addiction. Tell me, who are you prone to listen to more? Yes! Mr B, because he knows exactly how you really feel, he’s been in those shoes before so he trully understands and won’t judge you.

  God puts us through certain situations, experiences and battles because he has a bigger plan for us, he wants us to use our scars to draw people out of their battles. Nothing happens by chance, don’t look back at your past and ask God why? Look up to him and ask what next? There is a plan for everybody, God has a plan for all of us and its to take us to Great heights, don’t believe me? Let’s scoot over to Jeremiah 29:11 it says “for I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and hope”. God doesnt lie, he’s infinite, he knows all things, that past of yours making you feel bad about yourself is exactly what you need to get to the next phase in life, you should wear it like a crown, you are perfectly imperfect.

  We all know Nick Vujicic (hope I spelt that correctly), the man who has absolutely no limbs! Notice how some of you didn’t recognise who Nick was until I said he’s the man with no limbs? well now he’s one of the most accomplished writers of all time and amongst the top inspirational speakers this generation has ever seen, I read in one of he’s books where he said “as a child growing up, I hated my life, I hated myself and I felt death might be preferable, he was tagged an alien in school and barely had any friends, life was tough he stated. But now he’s story has turned around, and he can’t but imagine how he’s life would’ve unfolded if he had complete body parts “I’ll probably have a regular life” and you won’t be reading my books because I’m  just another regular person. P.s he’s wife just had a set of beautiful, perfectly normal girls.

       My ideal is this, different people require different mediums for conviction, certain people only take advise from people who have been through their ordeal before, So if that’s the case that simply means “I have my own audience and you have yours ….right? 

I play basketball alot, I really love basketball and I’ve been telling whoever cares to listen that if the person who converted me to a believer was a basketball player or my coach, i would have listened more because they are like me. And all the coach has to say is Desmond!! If you don’t give your life to Christ you’ll be sitting on the bench all season and I’ll be like SIR YES SIR!! God here is my life, its all yours. 

     What I’m trying to say is, don’t be sad when you think about what you’ve been through, have no regrets because everything was allowed by God, so long as you believe in him he’ll surely heal you, he cannot loose and therefore you can’t either and never forget three important facts in life; you are a crucial piece in God’s giant puzzle, Earth is not your final Destination (heaven is) and you are not defined by your mistakes.

The Great Lost Story 

   ​In time past, a story was told of a woman who was simply described as “one in her prime” she was all a man could ask for and probably even more “as far as physical appearance was concerned”. She knew she was very attractive so she placed herself on a very high pedestal, there was a young man who was in love with this lady and heaven bent on marrying her, so often he’ll send her flowers, Rose petals were her favourite! He’ll fill up her gas tank when she wasn’t looking, mow her lawn, surprise her with boxes of chocolate and everything she liked! He was sincerely interested in her, he treated her a bit more than a princess, she was soft gold to him. but every time he tried to make a move she always declined and undermined his personality. She liked somebody else, she was head over heals for the big shot hot model bodied business man who had a lot of money, He never treated her like the other man did but she never cared because he had a bag full of qualities. Time passed and the other man stopped sending her flowers, she stopped receiving text messages from him, her lawn grew out of proportion then she decided to ask around. Few hours later she heard the man had  been in a coma for days, she rushed down to the hospital to see him, he explained to her that he went to get her favourite flowers like he usually does but on his way to her apartment got knocked down by a dirt truck, he explained what she really meant to him even after her several rejections, He professed his feelings to her one last time as he drew his final breath. She was perplexed! She looked by the side of his bed and saw the bouquet of rose petals and it was addressed to her, she was crushed. She looked deeper and noticed a glitter in the bouquet, she reached in and it was a “Diamond Ring” turned out the man was actually on his way to propose to her when he got swatted by the truck. Tears slowly ran down her eyes. Few weeks later, the man she was in love/lost with got married to another lady, she lost everything! She was fed up with life and overdosed on a highly intoxicating drug and died leaving behind a note that read “Look no further than within, for what is yours is already with you”

This is sadly what happens in reality, we spend so much of our time chasing material objects that we loose sight of what is truly ours, we get carried away by our infatuations and forget life is only momentary. Cherish people who treat you special because someday they just might be no more.
