Journey To Greatness

The level of greatness cannot supersede the level of your meekness. The meekest Moses was the greatest Moses in the land. Pride comes before fall. If you’re too big to serve God, then you’re too big to experience His promotion. God demotes people and promotes people. He is the lifter and builder of men. “Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.” (Numbers.12:3) “And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.” (Exodus.11:3) “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm.75:6-7)


Reading. If you read today, it’ll show tomorrow. A reader today, a leader tomorrow. Poor leadership in Africa is traceable to poor reading. My people here would say, “someone who does not sit cannot become the leader.” Meaning that only those who sit at their work become leaders. 

Impact. Life isn’t about occupying a seat; it’s about actualizing a feat. It isn’t about your position; it’s about your contribution. It isn’t about your possession; it is about your distribution. It isn’t about what you take; it’s about what you give. Jesus Christ, our perfect example, came for the people. If your business (or career) isn’t adding value to people, it’s irrelevant.

Opportunities. Opportunities are building blocks of which destinies are built. The highway of life is dotted with blocks of opportunity. Yesterday is gone forever. No rewind. No replay. Every shell that you don’t pick at the seashore goes back to the sea. Opportunity lost may never be regained. The best way to maximize opportunity is to make a timely move. 

Serve God. Every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God isn’t a user of men; He blesses people. You’re not working for God; you’re working with God (you are partnering with God). In an earthly partnership, every active partner is entitled to a dividend; in the same vein, kingdom partnership guarantees you supernatural rewards. Serving God does not reduce people but expands them. Nothing remains worse serving God and the interest of His kingdom. 

“And behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every man according to his work shall be” – Revelation.22:12

Choice. Life’s a choice. Your choice in life determines your lot. We live in a kingdom of choices, not chances (life is practical, not mystical). Your choice is your right in this kingdom. Constitutionally, there’s freedom of choice. Nobody can choose for you – the aces are in your hands. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his life. Don’t blame God; blame yourself. Don’t question God; question yourself. If you point one finger to your parents or brothers, the remaining four fingers point to you.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” – Deut. 30:19

Understand your identity. Nobody knows you better than yourself. No matter natural men opinion about you, their view is their view. Your true picture can be found in the scripture. You are a special breed and peculiar being. But ye are a chose generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” (1Peter.2:9)You belong to a royal family which is the family of Christ. You are a glorious son and daughter of God. You are not meant to be pitied; you are meant to be envied. Stop living pitifully; start looking beautiful. Your destiny in Christ is an envious destiny. God has predestined your destiny for glorification.

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” (Romans. 8:29-30)

For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” (Gen. 26:14)

Therefore, I don’t care what a mortal man said about you, your true identity is rooted in the scripture. you’re a glorious child of God; you’re beautifully and wonderfully made. Your destiny is an envious destiny. “When men are casting down, we shall be saying there is lifting up.” When men are cast down, then thou shall say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person,” (Job.22:29)

Godliness. According to a common proverbial statement, If you can’t beat them, join them. That statement is satanic. You can’t beat them by joining them. otherwise, you’ll remain under them. choose to be different.

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” – Dr. Seuss

By choice, Daniel and Joseph reigned. Daniel would rather die than defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat. Joseph had already seen himself on the throne, and he wouldn’t allow his destiny to be trashed in Potiphar’s house; he knew that the house of Potiphar was only a passage. Your journey to greatness begins with Godliness.

When God Leads…


If everybody is lucky why are you not lucky? Don’t mistake faith for luck. There are no lucky men; there are lighted men.

There is a simplicity in Christ that makes the complexity of life to become easy. The devil makes the Word look too simple to believe.

In most cases, what God tells you to do may look too simple; it may look very stupid to believe, but that’s the way out.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Corinthians 11:3).

For instance, they needed wine, Jesus told them to bring water; When Jesus needed to feed 5000 people, He used a lad 5 loaves of bread.

The goal of the devil is to block your access to the light in the word of God. That’s why anything that takes you away from God is destroying you. The devil’s business is to cover your eyes of understanding with the veil of deceptions and lies. Be sensitive. The wicked will do all it takes to make you believe that all the biblical mysteries are mystical.

It works like fire. The Word of God works when you engaged with it; It works when you walk in the light of the scripture; It works when you ‘scripturalized‘ every area of your life.

For instance, plugging yourself into a covenant of tithing consistently will cause the release of supernatural (Abrahamic) blessings over your life and your business.

There are some things that God will never do for you until you have the right motive and maturity to manage them. God needs to trust you before He can entrust you to the wealthiest place of the most high.

If it’s not in your heart, it cannot be in your hand. If you cannot pay tithe when you are earning 100 nairas, you are not the one that will pay it when your income becomes six figures. If you cannot buy the plastic chair for a local church you are the one that will build a synagogue.

One thing is to be blessed; another thing is to sustain your blessings. Some follow have served God for one year but they’re no longer there; some fellows have served God for five years but they’re nowhere to be found while some fellows have been serving God for 50 years and they are still on track with Him. Obedience brought us into the reality of supernatural blessings of God, and it also demands continuous obedience to sustain them (See Deut 28 & James.1:22-25)

King Solomon got the blessing, but he allowed the wealth to take him away from God. Those of you that are into business, because of business meetings, you’ve abandoned God. Are you more executive thanking David? King David was praised 7 times a day and prayed 3 times. If you take God for granted you would be grounded. Nobody ended up at a loss serving God and the interest of His kingdom.

Caleb walked with God to the end and full and entered the land of Canaan. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had a covenant walk with God by complying with the terms of the covenant and the result is trans-generational blessings. Abraham must have taught Jacob how to tithe and Jacob must have taught Isaac. Abraham, a man like a nation; Isaac, a man like a nation; Jacob, a man like a nation. By obedience, Abraham became a symbol of generational blessings.

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham (John.8:39).

We’ve been taught that faith comes from hearing the word of God. In as much as that’s true, solid faith (trust) comes by hearing from God.

It’s a pity that some born-again Christians do not believe that they can hear  from God themselves. You can’t hear from God and doubt Him. When Moses heard that God had made him a god unto Pahroah, he didn’t approach Pahroah as a man but as a god. At the red sea, Moses was too sure that God was about to show another side of himself because he heard from Him.

Why did you think Abraham complied with all the dangerous instructions that he heard from God? He was dead certain that if he killed his only son, God would wake him up. Faith becomes trust by hearing from God.

When last have you heard from God? God speaks in a still small voice – rowdy people cannot pick it- He speaks to you everyday. Most people miss His voice by expecting Him to speak to them in some unrealistic ways.  Just a few people hear God talking to them directly like the days of old

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord . And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord ; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-12).

In most cases God speaks into your conscience; He also speaks through His words and nature. God can use anything to communicate to you, but you have to be sensitive to know when He speaks. The word of God is a reliable yardstick of measurement to determine whether the voice you are hearing is from God, the devil, or your voice. God does not speak contrary to His words. It’s not God that will tell you to marry an unbeliever because according to His word light and darkness cannot coexist; two cannot walk together except they agree (Amos.3:3).

God doesn’t speak to a deaf ear; He doesn’t show the whole blueprint. Until you obey the first instruction, you won’t hear the next thing – It’s step by step like Rome was built.

When God leads, you are ‘fear-free’ (God’s leading does not tense a man up, It allays all fears and deflates pressure); when God leads He makes provision; when God leads your experience is internal peace within your conscience.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still water. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death , I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalm.23:1-4).
