“Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible” (Lk 1:36, 37)

Angel Gabriel came from heaven to Mary. His words were not his own, but God’s who sent him. Just imagine! What does an angel know about ‘old age’? Does the word ‘menopause’ is whispered in heaven? How do they talk about barren women in the angels’ club? An angel does not grow old. He does not understand the weaknesses and trials we humans face on earth.

The doctor surely told Elizabeth that she is too ‘advanced in years’ to be a mother. Her priest too gave her no more hope. Her dream of having a baby has to be buried with her. Her prayers met God’s door locked. No angel had the key. She may have resigned to be a foster mother to other children. Maybe she can be a teacher… or a nanny to other children… what else?
But things changed overnight. When men give up, God comes down. He likes to do things like these; just so that we give Him alone will the glory. God sent a special Angel with a drop taken from the ocean of glory. The Angel brought a message of life from above. No sickness, no weakness, no mountain of opposition could stop the Word from conceiving. Elizabeth’s name means ‘My God is Abundance’. God the Provider came and gave her a son. The God of abundance brought baby John to his waiting parents.

This is the lesson: Divine abundance may come early or may come later in life. But it will come at last!. Just believe! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Dreams come true! For like the angel said: with God nothing will be impossible! All Glory to God!


“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand” (PV 19:21)

God is not an influence. God is a Person. God has His own mind, His own plans. Men make theirs, but it is God’s purpose that prevails against theirs. That is why it is good that in every situation you pray first of all to know God’s mind. You should not go ahead and make plans by yourself, waiting for God to bless them. It will not work!

In Hebrew, the word ‘plans’ means to plot, to conceive something in your mind, the effort to think, to imagine or to invent.  People who have the gift of curiosity always invent something new in their mind. They are the poets and the artists. We admire them but there is a danger. They imagine themselves to be wealthy, to live abroad or to marry someone rich and famous. They live in a dream land until they are cut off from reality. This is a very dangerous road. Many have perished in their reckless paths.

The truth is that God has His plans about us, about me and you. His plans are good and not evil. But we hate His plans if they are different than ours. But remember! No one can fight God and win! God’s plan and purpose shall ‘stand’ and all other plans shall bow down in failure. The Word of God shall accomplish the purpose for which it has been sent. If God seem silent now, it is because He waits for you to repent, to come to Him and align with His eternal plans for your life.

This is my testimony: There was a time I thought of myself as a very intelligent person. I (quietly) boasted of my achievements. I had many plans for my future. I thought I can achieve my goals without God. I tried to reason without prayer. I tried to sing without a voice. I failed! And thank God I failed! That is how I met my wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ! His plans for my life are too wonderful for me to write down in English or any language. Christ has now become my wisdom. I can freely boast of Him!

This is my counsel: If you are worried about someone who is going astray, someone you pray for, I say this to you! Take your eyes from that person or the surrounding circumstances. Look up unto Jesus and you shall see total victory and joy in His plans for that person. God is able to stop a fugitive! God is able to arrest a backslider! God is able to change the heart of that stubborn man! God is able to stop that woman who runs towards hell. Jesus has the keys of both life and death. Jesus is the Judge of all the earth and He has the last say in all human affairs! Stand on God’s side and you shall never fall! Have peace! Be strong! In Jesus name, Amen!


“Bless the Lord, O my soul;

And all that is within me, bless His holy name! (Ps 103:1)

This evening in the church we praised the Lord nonstop for two hours. I told the congregation that there are many things we can do in one hour. We can spend it in eating, sleeping, reading or visiting people. But the best way to spend one hour of your life on earth is in the presence of God. The best investment you can make, the highest value you can get for one hour is to dedicate it to praise and worship God. The second best is prayer.  Any other thing, no matter how good, is below.

So we decided to increase the value of our lives. First of all we prayed to be filled with the Holy Spirit. We received power as the Holy Ghost fell upon us. We then praised God with all that is within us. From one song to another, dancing and clapping, the Holy Spirit led us on. One thing is clear: praise is a sacrifice. It is not easy to praise God. It is not just singing. It moves the whole being: body, soul and spirit. Another thing is clear: lazy people cannot praise God. It is a privilege to praise God. It is the right and duty of the children of God. Not everybody can praise God. So we, who can do it, must do it!


Just before the evening service, I was informed that a sister who attends our church is on admission in the hospital with her 15 years old daughter. The sister lost her husband about two months ago. Now her daughter is sick. The doctor diagnosed appendicitis saying he will perform the surgery tomorrow. That is why he admitted mother and daughter. I held hands with Pastor Trish, just before the service and we prayed that God will intervene and heal her by Himself. As we praised God I forgot about the problem. All I remembered was The Lamb upon the Throne! At the end of the service, after two hours of praise, the mother phoned and said that the doctor came again this evening, examined the daughter and changed his mind. He said that there is no need to surgery. This ‘little’ testimony is just one good thing following the praise that touched heaven tonight. The praise must continue tomorrow and forever!

Praise the Lord!


“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Mt 7:13, 14)

narrow gate

This is the main gate entering our church, Father’s House Bible Church Warri, NIgeria. We call it the Narrow Gate of Life! Pray that all people who shall enter thru this gate will be saved! All glory to God!


“Say to this mountain: ‘Go!
Be cast into the sea!’
And doubt not in your heart
That it will be to thee.
It will be done! Stand on His Word!
Challenge your mountain in the Lord!”
(F B Meyer)

This is the Word of God:
“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain: ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them” (Mk 11:23)


“For thus says the High and Lofty One

Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy!

“I dwell in the high and holy place,

With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,

To revive the spirit of the humble,

And to revive the heart of the contrite ones” (Is 57:15)

The Almighty God tells us where to find Him. He who created the Universe has revealed to His creation, to us human beings, where we should go to seek Him. God is omnipresent. But there is a special place where God, whose name is Holy, dwells in a particular way.  The revelation of God’s dwelling place is not just for our general information, but it is an invitation to seek God until we find Him. In the presence of God there is peace, strength, revival, fruitfulness, fulfillment and fullness of joy.  Do not seek happiness for you shall never find it! Seek God and all these blessings shall follow!

Most people who called themselves believers do not pay the price to find God. They worship Him from afar and are satisfied with a distant, ‘second –hand’ relationship.  That is the tragedy of religion. Listen now to the Gospel: Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, left heaven for thirty three years and came down to earth to reveal God the Father. He died for our sins to restore us back to God. Our Savior is a Person. Only in Christ we can know God intimately and personally.

God lives in heaven. Most people believe that, at least in theory. But God says that He has a second home. He also dwells with ‘contrite and humble people’ for the specific purpose to revive their souls.  Who are these people? These are the children of God who take their cross daily to follow Jesus.

To be contrite it means to be repentant, to be deeply sorry for sin. In Hebrew the word means to be a victim of oppression, to be crushed to powder or to have a broken heart.  A humble man is a submissive man, one who is not proud and who thinks little of himself. In Hebrew it means to be put down, to be humiliated until you become depressed. God Almighty says that He dwells with these people just the way He dwells in heaven.

Emmanuel means ‘God with us’. This is the promise of God: if you humble yourself, repent of your sins, and come to Jesus, the Spirit of God shall comfort and revive you. In Hebrew, the word ‘revive’ means to give life and to keep alive forever. It is not just a temporary emergency procedure to a dying man, the way doctors are doing it. It means to completely destroy the bondage and the damage of sin and death; to nourish, restore, repair and made completely whole. It means to make a new man who lives forever with God.

God says He dwells with people who suffer injustice and oppression. Simply said, God is your ‘Tenant’ and Friend.  Can you imagine having Doctor Jesus living in your guest room? You will never fear any sickness, poverty or any life crisis at all. But this revelation is more than a dream, more than a nice imagination. It is the truth found in the Bible. Now you know why I never worry, why I love my home. Jesus Christ lives with me and in me. What a wonderful promise! What a mighty privilege! Glory to Emmanuel!


“Those You have given Me I guarded and protected, and not one of them has perished or is lost” (Jn 17:12; AMP)

This is the testimony of Jesus Christ hours before He died: He did not lose any of His children (except Judas, who is called ‘the son of perdition’, to prove that the Scripture is true!).

Child of God, Fear not! The Lord will not lose you! Your name is written in the palm of His hand! Your salvation is sure and eternal! Rest in His love! Rejoice always! Worship God! It is well with your soul!


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Mt 6:34)

All unbelievers worry about things they cannot control. And they can control nothing. This is God’s law: Nobody can control his future. God designed life in such a way that tomorrow always remains hidden in mystery. We need to live one day at a time. We pray for our ‘daily bread’. Today is the day of salvation! Tomorrow is not my property! Let me seek and find God today!

We are commanded to refuse to worry about tomorrow. This is God’s command. Jesus does not beg us to obey. He does not suggest obedience to us. He is the Captain of our salvation and we have to obey. Say this: ‘Yes, Sir! Yes, Lord!’ To refuse to permit anxiety to enter, that is a choice. It is also an effort. It is natural to worry. It is supernatural not to worry. You need the help of the Holy Spirit! To refuse to worry about tomorrow is a great achievement!

This is how God made this world: You can’t see the problems of tomorrow. So you can’t prepare for them in particular. The only preparation you can make is to feed daily on the Word of God, to increase your store of faith. Then you are ready for any trouble when it comes. The investment and insurance of the Word of God is the best of all! It never fails!

When good things come, rejoice! That is easy! When trouble comes, also rejoice! This is because God is never taken by surprise. God always has a plan. Pray and seek God’s purpose in that trouble. Great treasures shave been found in trash cans. With God, the present trouble becomes a testimony that will give glory to God, will put the devil to shame and will encourage many. They who have suffered and overcame their trouble by faith in God, these are the true champions of encouragement. Be an overcomer! Be an encourager!

As for me, long ago I made up my mind to study and obey God’s Word. I apply the Word daily to the best of my knowledge and strength. I declare that I shall be found to be an obedient child and a faithful servant of God! By the grace of God, when trouble comes, I arrest it and I defeat it. I make trouble to work for me! I am impressed how troubles serve me so well! I live like there is no tomorrow! I rejoice daily! The grace of God today is sufficient for me to find fulfillment, purpose and happiness. I do not need to travel, to lose weight, to buy new clothes, to change my circumstances or to adjust my dreams. Right now (1:40pm), right here (Warri, Nigeria), just as I am, I praise my God ‘from whom all blessings flow’! That is the end of the matter! Praise the Lord!


“Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (Jn 10:25-27)

In Greek, the word translated ‘church’ is ‘ecclesia’. It means to call out someone by name. In other words, the members of the Body of Christ are people who are ‘called out of darkness into God’s marvelous light’. The church on earth is a mixed multitude. Some are the true believers, called by God. Others have called themselves. These are the false believers. Jesus used a parable to describe the true believers as sheep and the religious unbelievers as goats. For a long time these groups of people look identical. But with time, as they mature, you shall see the difference. The true believers produce the fruit of the Spirit; they truly love God and one another. The false believers do not love anybody except themselves. You shall be deeply disappointed if you deal with them.

I remember something from my childhood that helps me understand this ‘holy calling’. As children, each summer, my sister and I went to spend our vacation in the villages of our grandparents. Things were very different than the city life we used to know. For example, early in the morning, a particular man comes down the street and loudly calls different names. At the beginning I thought that they were people. Later I discovered that he was calling the cows. Each household had cows. Each morning they are follow this man to the fields of green grass. In the evening they come back again. The cows that know his voice are always ready early in the morning, restless, waiting and making noise behind the gate. As soon as the gate is open, they happily go out and follow the shepherd. But I discovered that some cows continue to sleep inside. They do not hear the man’s voice and do not follow the rest cows. I was very surprised to discover that. This is a true story.

Now, these are some very serious destiny questions:
Do you know the voice of Jesus? Do you hear your Savior calling you, to wake up from sleep and follow Him, in the journey of eternal life? Or are you sleeping the sleep of hunger and death? Are you lead moment by moment by the Spirit of Christ? Are you ready to follow the Lord every day? Do you love Jesus and the fellowship of the brethren?

As for me: “I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back!” Glory to God!

When the children are grown and leave the home, any sweet memory of them is sweeter, it becomes a treasure. This evening I remember something about our daughter, Jemine. One of her all times favorite snacks was roasted plantain. It is called ‘bole’ in Nigeria. Each morning I will give her money to buy ‘bole’. Once I was very busy with my patients in the hospital and I forgot to give her ‘pocket money’. Jemine went to school early that morning. I was in my office when the door opened. It was Jemine with our driver, Monday. Breathing hard she said: “Malia, I told Monday to make a U turn and to come back so that I can collect my ‘bole’ money”
I smile as I write this. I hope Oliver, her son, will like bole too…


(in the picture you can see ‘bole’)


“There is no need for you to defend a lion when he is being attacked. All you need to do is to open the gate and let him out”
(Charles Spurgeon – The Prince of Preachers)

Preach the Word of God! In season and out of season! The Word of God can never fail! The Lion of the tribe of Judah will roar and all the goats will run or die!



The prayer meeting was wonderful. We praised God in songs. We thanked God for the privilege to know His Son Jesus Christ, to be saved, to read the Bible, to come to the house of God, to listen to sermons, to pray, to be led by the Holy Spirit and to live in victory.  We should never take these holy things for granted. Then the sermon followed:

“He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.  ”Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:15-18)


Jesus Christ builds His church. He needs stones. The children of God are the living stones. The question still remains: who do you say Jesus Christ is? Peter answered correctly and ‘passed the test’: Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God! This confession, when made with all your heart, in full assurance of faith, it is the proof that you are saved. The revelation of Peter is directly from God the Father. It was not thought or manipulated. It was a direct revelation from God. With your heart you believe and with your mouth confess that Jesus Christ is Lord; you preach Christ crucified and resurrected.  Professing the Lord Jesus is the proof that you are a material approved by Him, a living stone to build His Church. Religion or just going to church does not transform you into a living stone to be used by the Master Builder, Jesus Christ!


The Greek word for church is ‘ecclesia’.  It means ‘that which is called out’ from the multitude. To be a living stone, you must hear the voice of the shepherd and follow him. Then you are a living stone. If you are deaf to the voice of the shepherd, then you are not saved. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (Jn 10:25-27)


In Greek, the word Peter is ‘petros’. It means a little stone cut from a bigger one. This describes the one David used to kill Goliath. The second word translated ‘rock’ is ‘petra’ in Greek. It means a massive unmovable rock, a mountain. Therefore, the church of the Living God is built not on Peter (as the Catholic Church says) but on the massive unmovable authoritative heavenly confession and declaration that His Son Jesus Christ is Lord of all!


For a long time I thought that ‘the gates of hell’ describe active attacks coming from outside, from the devil. The revelation I got now it’s this: the Kingdom of God is always advancing. To the increase of God’s kingdom there is no end (Is 9:6).  The Church is moving on. It conquers new territories. As you move on, you shall meet these gates of hell, hindrances and strongholds directly on your path. They will try to stop your progress but they will always fail! The proof that you meet these attacks is that you are moving on, you are making progress! The gates of evil cannot stop the advance of God’s kingdom! The building has always opposition. The battle is continuous but unsuccessful! There is no man saved without opposition. No church is built without opposition. But the victory is sure!  Praise God!

God will bless you with new surprising fresh blessings! In Jesus name!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Is 43:19)

“Iată-Mă pe cale de a face ceva nou; acum se iveşte, nu-l recunoaşteţi?
Voi face o cale în pustie şi râuri în deşert” (Isaia 43:19, Rom)

(Me in Caserta, Italy, looking at water springs coming from the ground. Of course Jesus is my Boss!)


“In unison when the trumpeters and the singers were to make themselves heard with one voice to praise and to glorify the LORD… saying: “He indeed is good for His lovingkindness is everlasting,” the house of the LORD, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God” (2Chr 5:13-14)

The ways of God are opposite from the way of the natural man. In the world, if you withdraw from an exam, it is considered that you failed. I remember, long ago, in the medical school, I did not prepare enough for one examination. I chose to withdraw from the examination room. I was given a paper to repeat that same exam. Thank God I passed it later. But I still have the memory of feeling like a failure, bad, lost and cheated. To my surprise, the Holy Spirit gives me the option to withdraw from a test, if I chose to. It is not called failure. It is called sensitivity, strength and wisdom.

We just ended the evening service. We praised God and we shared testimonies of God’s goodness and faithfulness. Then it was time for me to preach.  I prepared the sermon. But as I stood on the altar, I did not have the liberty to tell the people to sit down and listen. There was an opposition, a type of oppression, a spiritual intimidation. The needs of the women were many. One sister just came from the hospital. Her husband is lying there unconscious for the past three days. Others told me that they were sick, victims of armed robbery and all. I felt inadequate to preach or teach. They needed the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, not me. The best I could do was to facilitate His coming, His moving in our midst.

We prayed and rejected all evil spirits, especially the spirit of fear, doubt, religion and depression. We invited the Holy Spirit to come. He came… as a cloud… as a rain… as hope and peace and strength for tomorrow. This is the truth: The Holy Spirit had free access in our midst. The cloud of glory filled our church. There was nothing more I could add. I withdrew and allowed Him to do His work, His peculiar work. I do not know exactly what He did, but without any doubt, it is a good, deep and strong work. Testimonies shall surely follow, to the glory of God! That is why I say, that I am happy with church tonight!


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” (Mt 24:35)

It is my greatest eternal privilege to honor and worship my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ! This scripture spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ reveals the eternity, power and glory of God’s Word. In Greek, the words ‘pass away’ mean to disappear, to become a thing of the past, to fade away, to become irrelevant, to ignore of neglect.  Our Lord says that nobody is able, now or in the future, to shun or to avoid the Word of God. It means no man who has heard the Word of God can depart, withdraw or run away like nothing has happened. The Word blesses or condemns. There is no room for ignoring the Word of life!

No man is able to prevent the effectiveness of the Word of God. No man can expel the Word of God. To expel it means to throw out by physical force or higher authority; to fire from job, to force to resign or to leave an organization, to take away the person’s rights and privileges. No man can do that to the Word of God. No man can evict the Word of God! To evict it means to drive out someone from his house or home. No man can do that to the Word of God!

Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh!  Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever! He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords! At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven, on earth and under the earth; every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father! All hail the power of Jesus’ name! Crown Him with many crowns! Jesus is Lord!

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,

And do not return there,

But water the earth,

And make it bring forth and bud,

That it may give seed to the sower

And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;

It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please,

And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Is 55:10, 11)


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” (Mt 24:35)

I am a white woman and a pastor living in Nigeria. Last night we had our mid-week service and it was wonderful. This story touched me; that’s why I write this letter. This morning I heard this breaking news: last night, a ‘white’ young man went to a church in Charleston, USA. This is an old, historical ‘black’ church. The congregation was doing Bible study at their mid-week service. For some time, the young man stayed in the pew and listened to the preaching of the Word of God. Suddenly, he drew his gun and shot the pastor and eight others. They all died on the spot. Many were wounded. The criminal ran away. Police is calling this a ‘hate crime’. The police are looking for him right now. Most people are now afraid of backlash, of increase hatred between the races. This is the normal thing to do. But I pray that God glorifies Himself in this tragic story! I pray for a miracle of reconciliation, peace, forgiveness and hope! I pray that men and women all over the world, black, brown, white or yellow give their lives to Christ! I pray that God will do something new in that city! I pray that revival will come to America, that these believers did not die in vain!  Holy Spirit please comfort the broken hearted!

As for the young man who hated blacks, Christians or the Bible, one thing is sure: He cannot run away from God, from His Word. I do not know the topic of the Bible study in that church last night. But whatever the pastor preached, it is the Word of God and this man listened for some time. He may hide from men, from family and friends even from police, but he can never hide from God, from the Word of God he heard last night! The Word of God has done its work in him! God can never lose!

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,

And do not return there,

But water the earth,

And make it bring forth and bud,

That it may give seed to the sower

And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;

It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please,

And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Is 55:10, 11)


Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever!
There are seasons when I long to know the Holy Spirit better. There are other times when I long to know God the Father. Since yesterday, I had a deep longing for my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. I shared my feelings with the congregation this evening. I told the choir that I want to hear the name of Jesus Christ, in songs, in prayer or praise. That is what we did. We just sang praises to the Lamb upon the throne. Until the very atmosphere became charged with the presence of the Holy Spirit. I prepared a sermon but I could not stop the river of life flowing down from the throne of God. So I joined in the celebration. Eternal life has a taste, a sound and a feel. We experienced all these during the service.

Lastly, we all sang:
“Because He lives, I can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone,
Because I know He holds my future, my life is worth a living just because
Christ lives!”


“Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise— why destroy yourself?

Do not be overwicked and do not be a fool— why die before your time?

It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other.

Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes” (Ecc 7:16-18; NIV)

walking on a rope

Have you seen a man walking on a tight rope? To me and you it seems impossible!  But some men are trained to stay fearless, focused and balanced. They do not look right, left or down! They keep balanced all the way until they cross to the other side. They are the champions we admire!

One of the sure marks of a mature believer is spiritual, emotional and mental balance. Our Lord Jesus Christ was perfectly balanced in all that He did. We should strive to be like Him. We should pay the price for spiritual maturity and divine wisdom. The reward is greater than silver or gold.

This is my testimony: as a young believer I had a tendency to go one way or the other. If I was in a bad mood, I will preach only hell to others. If I was in a good mood, I will preach only. The Holy Spirit helped me to go to the Cross, to die to personal opinions and natural feelings. He established my heart in His grace. The result was spiritual maturity and balanced poise. I could avoid all wicked, religious, dangerous and foolish extremes. With time, I could rebuke a sinner but also encourage a sinner. Nobody could tag me as a trouble maker or a fault finder. Nobody also could say that I am ‘a soft, sweet, prosperity or worldly Christian’. The Holy Spirit helped me to identify sin and giving me the strength to rebuke, to speak the truth in love. The same Spirit helped me to discern something good in the same sinner, to encourage him to move on, to go closer to God.

Divine balanced wisdom cannot be bought with money, learned from a Bible school or borrowed from men. Applying the Word of God daily to all that you do and to all your conversations, will make you wise and strong! If men hate God, they will avoid you. That is ok. But if men really want to hear from God, they will come to you! There is no need to advertise wisdom. It advertises itself! Her children, her fruits will speak well of her! This spiritually balanced mature fruitful wisdom comes only from above, directly from the Wonderful Counselor. This is my counsel: you should strongly desire to be a man or a woman of wisdom! To God be all the glory!


“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28)

One of the major weapons of the devil is discouragement. This is one of his favorite fiery darts. To be discouraged it means losing courage and confidence until you are unable to do something you need to do. Discouragement is an attack on the emotions and the will. It weakens them. You cannot find joy and excitement in the things you need to do. Courage is the mental strength to stand and persevere in times of fear, danger or difficulties. Courage ends in success. Discouragement ends in failure and defeat. There is no middle road. No Christian should be discouraged! Reject depression! The Holy Spirit is life, truth, power, peace and joy! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!

The scripture above should be memorized by all believers and applied daily. It is the trumpet call of faith and strength for all the children of God. It says that God is totally in charge of your life! You are not in charge! The devil is not in charge! The confusing circumstances are not in charge! God is in charge! It says that ‘all things work together for good’ not some things, not only the good things. But all things! God will arrange the scattered pieces of the puzzle until they ‘make sense’. Each piece is important. Some moments in life are painful, some a boring and some are happy. Do not look too much at each piece separately because you shall be distracted! Look at the big picture! Look at what God wants to do in your life! Let God arrange the pieces together and then you shall see what God sees, the beautiful love story of Jesus reflected in your humble life. God alone knows the end from the beginning. God loves you and you love God! That is all that matters! Success must follow!

Dear Believer, God has called you to His presence to be His son and servant. This calling started from the foundation of the world. It did not start today! This calling is supernatural, active and powerful. It will work wonders in your life. May God’s perfect will be done in your life, in Jesus name, amen!
