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).

The Mystery In The Name Of Jesus


A picture of Jesus


The name of Jesus is not just a pause or a comma in prayers. Understanding the mysteries in the name of Jesus will put you in command of your destiny. God has given us a name that’s above all other names. Whatsoever that has a name answers to the authority in the name of Jesus. This is a divine setting. Be it sickness or disease; failure or hunger as far as it has a name, it must bow to the name of Jesus.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth.—Philippians.2:12-13.

You can use the name of Jesus to give your life a new shape; you can use It to turn your business, marriage, and career around in 360 degrees.

Be mindful of the name you name your children. People tend to exhibit the attributes of the name given to them. That’s why so many biblical heroes had to change their names to suit their offices.

Remember Peter used to be known as Simon, which means a shaking reed.  When Simon (a reed) became Peter (the rock), the giant in him awoke. He became Peter the rock and that fit the ruggedness of his office.

We can find the prophecy about the birth of a messiah in the book of Isaiah.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.”—Isiah.9:6-7.


Below are the mysteries behind the Name of Jesus:

(1)  His Name is Wonderful
(2)  His name is wisdom
(3)  His name is mighty
(4)  His name is eternal
(5)  His name is peaceful

His name is wonderful – Most of the attributes of the name of Jesus are mentioned in Isaiah.9, they manifest themselves into reality when you use the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus is full of wonders. It can heal the sick,  liberate the poor, oppressed and raise the dead. This list is endless. It’s very vital to understand the values that the name carries.

There is wisdom in the name of Jesus – The scripture mentioned counsel as part of the attributes of the name of Jesus. Counsel is a part and parcel of Wisdom. You can’t talk about counsel without talking about wisdom. Wisdom is applied knowledge. Counsel is solving human problems with applicable scriptures. Understand this value that you have in the name of Jesus. Even a child knows Jesus is wise. At 12, he was teaching the elites, they were marveled at the magnitude of his wisdom.

His name is mighty – The supremacy of the name of Jesus was proven in a conquest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal; the yardstick of measurement was a fire. If God is the real God, let fire come down from heaven; If Baal is the veritable god or not, let fire come down. The Baal agents carried out their best but all their efforts were futile. The God that answers by fire responded with a consuming fire. And that settled the case. Thus the supremacy of  God was established.

Another scene took place in Pharaoh’s court, it was a saga between Aaron’s rod and the rods of the sorcerers. The original and the counterfeit. The rod of Aaron turned to a serpent, and the rod of the magicians also turned to serpents. But the serpent of Aaron swallowed all the serpents of the magician. Thus, proving the supremacy of God. Here, you must be sensitive about miracles. Not all miracles are genuine. Some are traditional magic. The magician rods also turned to serpents. (See Exodus.7:9-12)

Understand that the rod symbolizes the name of Jesus. And there shall come forth a rod out of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots  (Jesus is the rod). With the rod in Moses’ hands, diverse signs and wonders occurred. The rod departed the red sea; water gushed out from the rock; the rod rained tempest and hails upon the Egyptians. Understand that you have a rod in your hands to perform signs and wonders.

The name of Jesus is eternal – His name carries everlasting value that is beyond this world.

Peace – In a restless world, the only place where you can find a genuine rest is in Jesus. There is a lot of jostling and bustling here and there. Consciously or unconsciously, even believers are caught in the web. Until surrender to Jesus, and leave the ring of unrest, the journey will always rough.

Final Thoughts

  • The name of Jesus is not a mere pause in prayers; it carries the attributes mentioned in Isaiah’s prophecy.
  • The name of Jesus is wonderful. The bible says you shall do signs with the name of Jesus.
  • His name is mighty. Jesus was sent to be great (Luke.1:26-38). He said, as my father sent me, so I sent you (to be great). The supremacy of the name of Jesus was established in a contest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal and between Moses, Aaron, and magicians. The serpent of Aaron swallowed the serpent of the magicians, proven the supremacy of God.
  • The name of Jesus has an eternal value.
  • The most peaceful place in the world right now is the kingdom. Run to Him today. Tomorrow might be too late.
