How To Discover Your Calling And Purpose In Life


How To Discover Your Calling In Life
A Picture of Purpose From Google

God’s way is different from men’s way. As heaven is far away from earth, so is His ways distant from our ways. It will be very sad if you spend your lifetime doing what you’re not ordained to do.

In our culture, many people ended up doing what they did not study in higher institutions. It’s God’s way to bless people with their talents and gifts. Hear this, what will make you to become somebody in life is that talent which you’ve not discovered yet.

Frankly speaking, there is no such thing as useless person or field. You’re not inferior to anybody. If I need you; you also need me.

But the sad thing is that many people are living a shapeless life due to their inadequate knowledge about their callings in life.

Like the saying of a wise man, the grave yard is the place where most talented people reside. Of a truth, many talents have gone unheard buried in the deepest place under the earth (I wrote this post so that this will not be your portion).

What Are The Ways To Discover Your Calling?

  • Ask God For Direction – Out of sheer ignorance, Many people have dived into what they are not called to do in life but later regretted by asking God to come and finished what He did not start in the first place. I must warn here, don’t ever ask God to work out the plan He was not involved. Rather, ask God to give you His plan for your life. You can get this done by going into prayer and fasting for 3/7 days or as you are inspired by the Holy Spirit. “And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as noonday.” The cheapest way to access divine direction is prayer and fasting. It helps to dispel the darkness around your career, marriage and future; illuminates your path. Then, you become a pathfinder. It’s your birth right to have access to God’s plan for your life. But unfortunately, many born-again Christians have sold the birth rights for the feeding of the belly the same way Esau sold his birthright to Jacob – even though everyone has been blaming Esau for selling his.
  • Faith (action) – The best definition you can give to faith is “action.” It’s God’s style to leads His people by their actions – step by step, God leads – If God reveals a step to you, until you follow that step, don’t expect the revelation of another step. God knows you more than you know about yourself. He knows you right from your mother’s womb (Jer. 1:5). And God has the records about your past, present and future. The secret of your future is in His hands. But if God shows you how tall the mountain is, obviously, you’ll be discouraged climbing. Friend, release yourself from the shackles of ignorance and embrace God in obedience as He leads you step by step.

Circumstances That Require God’s Vengeance


Vengeance Of God
A picture from Google

Marriam-Webster defines vengeance as punishment inflicted in retaliation for an injury or offense: Retribution.

Vengeance is the act of doing something to hurt someone because that person did something that hurt you or someone else.

God’s vengeance is the judgement of God upon the oppressors of humanity.

What are the circumstances that require God’s vengeance?

When There Are Wicked And Corrupt Rulers In A Nation:- There is a need to call for vengeance when there are wicked rulers oppressing the mankind. There are some wicked rulers that would go at any length to acquire power. By: killing innocents citizens, funding chaos and uprising in the country, assassinating oppositions in the contest for power. The struggle for power should not be a do or die affair. These kind of inanimate behaviors need to be judged.

God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked everyday. (Psalm.7:11)

When There Is A Curse Hanging Over Your Destiny:- A long-term problematic circumstance can be termed “cursed.” However, an angry look must be looked upon any long-sequence problematic circumstance if enough must be practically be enough.

Remember, whatsoever that you cannot despise you cannot dominate. All curses including generational curse are reversible by crying for the invocation of God’s vengeance.

Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and Israel what hath God wrought (Num.23:23)

When There Is Demonic Affliction:- Many Christians are molested by the devil and his host of demons with all kinds of afflictions like: sickness, hunger, failure and loss. Until there is a cry for vengeance, even the born-again believer would be victimized.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (Jn.10:10)

For the record, I don’t pray for my enemy. When the enemy is invading your territory the best thing to do is to attack. Or else, there will be influx of rebels in your terrain causing chaos and havocs. Take the spiritual weapon of prayer and fasting and confront your oppositions until they are no longer in existence.

5 Keys to Business Breakthrough


Business breakthrough happens when there is a major progress in your business. This can be Inform of business expansion, increase in sales or increase in the size of your business.

Many business owners around the world today are frustrated because of business failure. There expected results have been cut off, there have been ups and downs in businesses. Therefore, things are not working.

Why is it so? Not because they have not been selling/offering quality products/services.

But, the truth is that they are victims of ignorance, more than anything else.

Knowledge is the key to liberty. The understanding of the word of God will enable you to command outstanding results in your business. You have done all you could do. Now, let God help you. Heaven does not help those who help themselves, Heaven leaves those who help themselves alone.

Without any further intro, what are the keys to business breakthrough?

(1) Righteousness – Righteousness is a prerequisite for business breakthrough. The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon (Psalm.92:12).

Let us study some biblical examples. Take Job for a case study. Job was a man in the land of Uz who was perfect and upright, and feared God and hated evil (Job.1:1).

Result? His substance was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and a very great household. So that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east (Job.1:3).

You see, God and devil both confirmed and testified that Job hates sin and loves righteousness. And righteousness is what made Job to experience a never-end-well amount of wealth and business breakthrough.

In those days rearing of camels and sheep were the big time business of the time.

You too can experience business expansion only if you can plug into the ideas of maintaining a Godly and righteous living.

(2) Delightful Study and Meditation on God’s Word – If you want your business to change level in the second quarter of this year, start taking the word of God seriously.

The psalmist says, Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful (you can relate this verse to the first point I discussed).

But his delight is in the law of the lord, and his law doth he meditate day and night, and in verse 3, he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper (Psalm.1:1-3).

Likewise in the book of Joshua. This book of law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein. For then thou shall make thy way prosperous and have good success (Joshua.1:8).

Brethren, beyond any reasonable doubt, studying and meditating on God’s word is a sure way to experience business breakthrough.

For information to become revelation, meditation is essential. Meditation serves as am intermediary between information from God’s word and revelation from the Holy Spirit. Information – meditation – revelation – illumination – manifestation.

That is the chain or cycle of causing things to happen in life.

(3) Obedience and Subscription to Covenant Demands –Anything can fail in life. Obedience to God’s or scriptural commandments can never fail. Business breakthrough answers to the covenant platform of seed and harvest time (Deu.8:18).

It always requires a sacrificial approach to get anything from God. Let’s take Solomon as an example, He offered the largest burnt offerings in history and became the wealthiest man that ever liveth.

After the order of Solomon, the more you sacrifice what you have the more you get blessed. This thing that I’m talking about does not works in theory. Until you practice and demonstrate giving business breakthrough is not in view.

Understand this, God doesn’t joke with His word. That is why you must not joke with your tithe. I have created several posts about tithe. Read here.

(4) Faith – Faith is seeing the invincible and believing the impossible (Heb11:1). Faith is to follow God’s instructions blindly or foolishly without any logical reason(s). Those who asked for signs before they believe, in the scripture, were not God’s best. Faith is no longer needed after God has shown you the whole of His blueprint before you believe and take scriptural calculated steps.

For without faith it is impossible to please him: For he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Heb.11:6).”

Are you engaging in God’s instructions? If yes, also add faith to your effort. Let your engagement be mixed with faith. Let both what you think and say agree. You are what you think of yourself and declared boldly (prov.18:21; prov. 23:7). Get this straight, you can’t see dead today and wake up to see life tomorrow. That is divine principle. Everyone gets what they see.

(5) Physical Approach – Having given you the spiritual prescriptions for business breakthrough. Here are some physical approach that can help. Be disciplined. Go beyond your best to deliver your tasks. There are no record breakers in their comfort zones.

Build capacity. Capacity implies acquiring new knowledge, keeping abreast with your business environment (external and internal); learning new skills; possessing a trade mark – a rare knowledge that can force your competitors out of business.

In summary, the keys to business breakthrough are:

  • Righteousness
  • Delightful Study and Meditation
  • Obedience to Covenant Demands
  • Faith
  • Physical Approach (Discipline, Capacity Building, Keep Abreast with the Changes in the Business Environment and Posses Rare Knowledge).

What else can we do to experience a business breakthrough? I’ll love to read and reply to your ideas In the comment session. Thanks.

4 Deadly Insight’s killers


Insight’s killers are the forces that can block our access to supernatural insights and revelations.

It’s your insights that sharpens your foresights. Your lot in life is determined by the amount of the secrets that lord has entrusted into your custody which is only possible by fearing God.

“The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant (Psalm.25:14).”

It’s our access to insights that determines the level of our greatness in life. Nothing come to be outside revelation.

Seeing will always precedes having any where, any day; any time. Wait a minute, Manifestation is a function of revelation. Life does not answers to looking, life answers to seeing.

“For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever (Gen.13:15).”

A future that you can’t picture don’t expect to be featured in it. May the lord anoint you to see!

What are the factors that are accountable for the death of your insights?

(1). Disobedience – On top of my list is disobedience. Disobedience murders insights while obedience facilitates seeing.

God leads us step by step through our journey in life. If God has instructed you to take a step and you disobeyed, He with surely not show you another step that follows until you follow the previous step. Every act of disobedience culminates into another. Disobedience breeds disobedience. God does not like speaking to a deaf ear.

Hence, if you want to start seeing into the spirit realm, start obeying God’s instructions.

As a matter of fact a day is coming when sheep will be separated from the goats.

“And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. [18] Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not (Mal.3:17-18).”

(2). Complains and Grumblings – You can’t be a grumbler and tell me that God is revealing His secrets to you.

Complaining, murmuring and faultfinding will block your access to revelation. That’s why the scripture says “Do all things without murmurings and disputings: (Phil.2:14).” All Murmurers are programmed for devastations. “Neither murmur ye as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer (1Cor.10:10).”

The journey of 40days became 40years due to murmurings. All those who murmured in the wilderness were destroyed of the destroyer.

If you want God to lead you and you as well desire light to shine through your paths. Turn all your bitterness and hatred into appreciation, praise and thanksgiving. You can’t be a praise warrior and lack supernatural ideas.

During Jesus’ earthly ministry, He always knew what to do. Jesus had never be stranded of ideas. Anytime they were confronted with with a seemingly impossible situation, He gave thanks. And the miraculous exploded! “And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do (Jn.6:6).”

(3). Association – Keeping a wrong association will hinder the level of your advancement in life. When you keep the company of the wise, you will be wise otherwise you will be destroyed.

“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed (Prov.13:20).”

There are four categories of people in life: (1) The Very Draining People (V.D.P); (2) The Very Needy People (V.N.P); (3) The Very Troublesome People (V.T.P); (4) The Very Important People (V.I.P).

The VDP’s have nothing to add into your life than to drain you until you become like a drained battery that needed to be charged. So, you better watch out for them.

The VNP’s are the people that are always In need of everything – even prayer, there in need – They can receive everything from everybody but they can’t give out. My friend, watch out for these category of people.

The VTP’s are troublesome people. They will always look for a way to find your trouble even you’re not given them your attention. Watch out for this people too.

The VIP’s are the people that will add values into your life. You can’t walk with them and remain the same. They are people with great insights and values. Look out for them!

Understand this, there is no association or friendship that you keep that will leave you neutral. Your friend can either make you or break you.

(4). The Power of Darkness – Behind every epileptic vision, there is a power of darkness.

Behind every shortsightedness, there is a force of hell.

Darkness reigns until light prevails.

The devil is still at the business of using veil to cover the eyes of understanding of people , even the so-called born-again Christians are still victims of this.

Therefore, there is a need for the light of the word of God to invade the prison house in order to set at liberty those who have been held captive in the shackles of darkness and ignorance.

“But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ (2.Cor. 3:14.”)

Here you have the 4 insight’s killers that can rub or steal anyone of his or her inheritance and envious destiny in Christ.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (Jn.10:10).”

Brethren, let us try as much as possible to reorder our lives in order to avoid these deadly insights killers and our lives will never remain the same.

Questions and contributions are welcome. May the lord open the eyes of our understanding!

Financial freedom released!


A picture of financial bondage from Google

Assuming you have not put yourself into bondages in the first place you won’t be asking God to come and clean your gut. God won’t come to finish what He did not start.

Common sense should have told you not to buy what your money can’t buy. Because if  you go about that way you will be living your life under financial bondage.

You don’t need wait until the Holy spirit nudge you that you should not live based on credit cards. Any right thinking person will know that that is wrong.

You can make up your mind not to live on credit cards again, not to borrow a dime from a natural being – I have made mine. Borrow erodes our dignity in Christ. Begging tarnish our garment of royalty. Borrowers are servants to the lenders. I’m not the one that said so. That is what the word says.

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”- Prov.22:7

Break siege of financial bondage

You are head. Get rid of the tail. You will lend to nations. Not one nation. But many countries. You will not borrow. What a good news! However, the promises are true but there is a condition to be met. There is a price to be paid. The price of hearkening. Diligent & rigorous hearkening with observations and demonstrations. With obedience and faith.

You look frail. You are hungry. You have only one cloth. Well, you can wash it, iron it  then wear it and walk majestically. You drink ‘garri,’ you might also need a tooth pick. Look beautiful, not pitiful. Repent advertising your misfortunes to everyone. They have their own burdens. There is no challenge free life. To face challenges is normal. It’s scriptural to be challenged. It’s unscriptural to be defeated. The stability of Wisdom is tested in the days of challenges. A line I have never read in any book.

“Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of our times” (Is.33:11)

It’s not going to be like this forever. It has a beginning and it will surely come to an end. There is always a light in the and of the tunnel.

The Agony of Darkness


20190505_145901_0000

You look old and ugly. Sin has left a miserable imprint on you. The difference is clear. The difference between the obedient and disobedient. You grope in poverty and live under the bondage of fear and uncertainty. The agony of darkness is evident in every sphere of your existence. You’ve murmured and complained. Things were bad. You’ve blamed everyone for your predicament. You’ve blamed the government, your spouse, your parents, your brothers and uncles. You’re responsible for the outcome of your life.

God wants to speak to you. But one thing for sure is that HE won’t just speak to a deaf ear. The truth is that you’re a victim of ignorance – more than anything else.

Darkness reigns until light prevails. Wake up, you ordained sons and daughters of Zion. Shake off your feet from the dust. Possess your possession, claim your inheritance in Christ by taking responsibility.

Life is a choice, the ball is in your court. There is an hard way and easy way (dark way and light way). The journey is easier and faster when there is light that shines through your path. Light facilitates speed. Let God leads you into the perfect plan and purpose that He has designed for you.

New birth is a free gift (as free as it’s your choice is very much needed). Let God redeem you without money. You have been sold for nought.

I have never regret given my life to Jesus. I have never known any better last year in my life. It has been from glory to glory, victory to victory, triumph to triumph. You too can have such testimony or even greater testimony only if you can surrender your life to Jesus and abide in His will.

Have you just given your life to Jesus? I would love to hear from you so that I can pray with you.
