My battle field: protecting your heart

For the last two years, I struggled with thoughts that tempted me. I thought I had completely overcome those issues but alas I was wrong. I cried, begged God to make it stop but nothing seemed to changed. Instead, it got worse when I relocated to Germany. Now I bet we all deal with evil thoughts that tempts us. No wonder Jesus prayed “Lead us not into temptation” (Matthew 6:13).

But where do these temptations come from? Why do people suddenly begin to do things that seem out of character? I once heard about a father who murdered his 4 year old and in his confession, he said he didn’t know why he did it. According to him, it almost seemed like he was compelled. I cannot but think that it would have been a different story if he had the word of God buried deeply in his heart, Let’s see what the Bible says,
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death-James 1:13-15

Now, we know that the natural man who is dead to God is allied with Satan. This is why your flesh will, without renewal in God’s word naturally want to do silly things. This is why I battled in my soul for two years with my flesh just wanting to go off on its on tangent. If satan tempted Jesus , who is the Creator who do you think you are? Satan will tempt you with things that you are attracted to. So what can we learn from Jesus on this issue? How did he overcome?

If you went to sunday school as a teenager, you probably heard the scripture “Keep your heart with all diligence,For out of it spring the issues of life” Proverbs 4:23. Jesus kept His heart with God’s word. This is also how I am able to survive the attacks on my mind. Why are you watching sexually immoral movies if you are prone to sexual lust? Why do you spend your time watching murder and crime mysteries if you are prone to things like anger, jealousy and strife?
Don’t you know that satan is fighting for your soul? God has instructed us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12),and yes God is able to keep you from falling (Jude 1:24) but you need to align with Him and His word. You need to protect your heart. When most people do things, they must have thought about it. Protect your heart to live in God’s will and plan for your life. Yes, you might still struggle but you will have God’s word as ammunition like our Master Jesus.

To end, I leave you with the words from apostle Paul, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” Romans 12:2

You too can win the battle everyday.

Your Choice,Your Power

Hello, it has been such a long time.I trust you are well. Although not everyone celebrates christmas, we can all agree that christmas, like a song writer wrote is “the most wonderful time of the year” . It is also a time to spend with family and friends. So Merry Christmas!

In this period, the Lord has been teaching me about the power of our choices. Life is a compendium of choices that are made. You know, choosing to eat healthy might be the reason you are still alive today. Choosing not to do drugs might be the reason you are not in Jail. Choosing to guard your heart, might be the reason your marriage is still prospering. What about choosing life?

Jesus was born at a time like this two thousand and nineteen years ago to give us life. His life makes all the difference. Of Course your life might not be perfect but it would be beautiful if you are surrendered to Jesus. Are you discouraged and burdened? Choose to give your burdens to Jesus(1 peter 5:7) . Has 2019 been unkind to you?Choose to find your joy in Jesus (Philippians 4:4). Are you worried about the future? Trust God (Proverbs 3:5-6).

See, no matter how discouraging your situation is at the moment, choose Jesus. He is the reason for the Christmas anyway.

Also, if you haven’t already chosen a relationship with Jesus, who created you. This is definitely the best time to choose His life over your currently non existent one. Your career cannot give you life, your spouse cannot give you life, you cannot give yourself life. Receive His life and your life would definitely not be the same.

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” – Jesus

Have a blessed Christmas and a fantastic 2020.

You are loved,


Seeing with the eyes of God

I moved to a different country a few months ago and it was wonderful to be here for about the first 3 months. This was followed by culture shock. I began to feel lonely and sad. The shock of a different national language, lack of family and friends nearby. I missed speaking English with random people on the street, I missed eating Nigerian food like Abacha and Amala. I missed my parents, siblings and friends. I missed what I was used to. The change was hard and I was sad. I thought of visiting Nigeria but it didn’t make sense to run back to the familiar just because I was feeling challenged. My prayer life took a dip and it became a struggle to pray.

Then Daddy God, the Father of my Lord Jesus Christ, the one who loves me more than anyone will ever love me, stepped in as if to say ‘Favour Enough!’.
This was followed by His orchestrating things and timing to enable me engage in daily prayer with two of His daughters. My prayer life gradually returned with this exercise. To His glory, prayer time no longer feels like religion. I love it!

I tell you Fam, prayer changes things it. It is not a cliché. Additionally, godly friendships are a gift. Trust me, we need to be intentional about our friendships even now more than ever.

Psalm 1:1-3 (HCSB)
How happy is the man
who does not follow the advice of the wicked
or take the path of sinners
or join a groupof mockers! Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction,and he meditates on it day and night.He is like a tree planted beside streams of waterthat bears its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.Whatever he does prospers.

Is change now easy for me? No.. Not yet and I honestly don’t know if will ever be easy. Are my challenges still there? Yes! However, I can now see clearly. I see with the eyes of my Lord Jesus that everything will be okay. I am not sad, unhappy or depressed anymore. I am content.

You are loved❤️


Congratulations: You are a Candidate

Recently, I have been learning that God truly uses normal people to achieve His purposes. The individuals that most people would write off as “useless”, “No future Ambition”, and those people are the ones that God uses.


Moses was murderer and if he lived in this generation, he would probably be sentenced to life imprisonment or would have been killed. That same Moses, God gave a new identity and a significant role in His plan. (Exodus 2-3)


Rehab was a prostitute (Joshua 2). Maybe she would have been a Cam-girl, Porn star or a Sugar baby if she lived in this generation. However, that former prostitute became a great grandmother of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:5). Imagine all the people that would have doubted her when God decided to turn her life around.

See, it is not of Him that wills or run. It is the Lord that shows mercy (Romans 9:16). All this talk about Kanye West, has God not done it before? Kanye is in fact the perfect candidate to be used by God since God qualifies the Called. Time fails me to talk about the story of Saul to Paul. Please read it in the book of Acts. YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO BE LOVED BY GOD. Just give Him your life and watch Him transform it to something beautiful.

It doesn’t matter if you sold drugs, were involved in immoral and perverse acts. As long as you acknowledge, receive Jesus Christ into your life as God and give yourself to Him completely you are a candidate.  You are not too bad, you are not too broken. You are the perfect candidate. God is looking for normal, regular people. He is looking for you.

My Story:

When God called me in 2014, I could hardly believe it since I am not special or holy. In fact many times in the first two and a half years of University, I didn’t go to church (yikes my pastor parents will see this) or think too much about God. I did some of the things, teens would usually do.  I had a five year plan and somehow wanted to join Nigerian politics and be the first female president. I am not super smart, you could say I am regular. I couldn’t understand why the God of the universe would choose to use this broken, battered girl. However, God is merciful and it is not about what you do or do not do. It is about His goodness. Today, I am here and I am actively working on my salvation. The difference between the years before 2014 and now, is the fact that I know I am loved by my Father, the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ and one day I will tell my story in greater detail J

If you are scared to surrender, just know that you are not that bad. You are a candidate to bring greatness and hope to the world. You too can be used by God.

You are loved.



Why you should stop saying things you don’t mean

My first lesson on saying things I don’t mean happened some time in 2010..My fist year of University. If you are Nigerian, you know how there is a culture of ‘come and join me’ when eating, even if most people don’t mean it. So having recently moved to Kenya that year, I was elated to discover an ice cream shop which quickly became my go to shop for junk food. One evening after my class and going to shop for my beloved icecream and fries, I balanced in my room to eat when a lady came to hangout.

The Nigerian in me invited her to join me even though I didn’t mean it. She was like ‘oh yeah, sure’. You should have seen my face, it had a mixture of shock and sadness😲😵 lol. I had invited her and I couldn’t take back my invitation so I had to share. I must say that it didn’t feel good. It didn’t feel good not because I was selfish but because I was hungry and I didn’t really want to share, I just invited the lady out of courtesy. Well I learnt my lesson and pretty much stopped saying things I didn’t mean.

Recently, God dropped it in my heart to remind us that saying things we don’t mean doesn’t reflect our Father God. You know He is the God that says a thing and does it and if you claim to be His child then it is important to walk in His steps. We are ambassadors of God on planet earth, we are in the world but not of the world. We Must Represent Our Father. So if you are in the business of saying things you don’t mean, it’s time to stop and really mean what you say. Don’t follow the crowd or culture. Our culture should be based on the kingdom.

Basically, you should stop saying things you don’t mean because you will eventually get frustrated and it doesn’t reflect God.

Ephesians 4:22-24 (VOICE)
22 then you know to take off your former way of life, your crumpled old self—that dark blot of a soul corrupted by deceitful desire and lust— 23 to take a fresh breath and to let God renew your attitude and spirit. 24 Then you are ready to put on your new self, modeled after the very likeness of God: truthful, righteous, and holy.

Because your Daddy has your best interest at heart.
Because your Daddy knows how to take of you in grand style.

~~~ So my brother, my sister
Calm down and pursue Him

Self-love or selfishness?

What we call selflove many times is selfishness. I am not saying you shouldn’t love yourself, please by all means love yourself but love the Lord God with all your heart first.

Why do we sometimes engage in what is not pleasing to God? Because we are selfish. Humans are generally selfish and sometimes acts that seem selfless are done from a selfish motive.

Why do people engage in perversion? Because they felt like it? Or why do people commit murder? Because they were offended or Angry? The reason for many evils on our planet is because “someone wants to’ or ‘has been pushed to’. It is always about ‘Me’ or ‘I’. ‘I am hungry’ so I will rob or sleep with married men to get money. She looked at me in a way I don’t like, therefore ‘I will deal with her’. I will commit abortion because I don’t want the baby, I will do this and that because it pleases me.

Any act that doesn’t seek to bring Glory to God is sinful. So if you are struggling to break an addiction to porn, food, sex as a Christian and the only reason you want to break free of those is for your own ‘good’, then you probably will struggle for a long time. But if you are trying to break whatever addiction so that the will of God can be done, then expect the help of God because the Motive is for His glory.

For God, the means is just as important as the end. So why do you keep asking God for the answer to that prayer, is it to show off? To feel like ‘you have also arrived’? Or to glorify God? If your answer is not coming you might need to check your motive.

If you claim to be a Christian – child of God, then your life is not about you. It is about your Lord and master – Jesus Christ.

‘In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood’. Hebrews 12:4

May God help us live totally for His glory in Jesus name. Amen.

Dear young minister,

Just because you are called doesn’t mean you are entitled to anything. David was already anointed by Samuel when he started working with Saul yet several times in 1 Samuel 18, it is stated that he conducted himself more wisely than all his colleagues in the Palace.

You are entitled to anything. You are not entitled to people calling you reverend, papa(mama), sir (ma). You are not entitled to people giving you gifts. We grow into these things. As one of my elders would say, the pudding is in the eating. Whether anyone calls you ma or sir, it doesn’t change the fact that you’ve been anointed by God. Some of us are so power drunk that we think that being called is a license to talk to people anyhow. It is not about power, respect or influence.
Being called by God is a call to servant hood!

It is serving Him and shining His light to humanity. It is not about you and the respect you get in the eyes of men. It is about the knowledge and life of God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
When you grow, you won’t have to remind people to refer to you as sir or ma. You won’t have to force people to honour you. It will happen because your growth will demand it. Calm down and grow.

Thank You Creator

T. H. A. N. k Y. O. U
Why do we need to say thank you Jesus ?
Is it because of the good health that you can have that you cannot give yourself?
Is it because you are alive and not dead? Is it because of the hope that you have? Since where there is life there is hope?
Is it because even though you’ve been challenged you’ve not drowned in your challenges?

Is it because you’ve been called beloved of God?
Is it because we have victory in Jesus Christ?
Is it because the enemy, the devil and his cohorts have been shamed and embarrassed?
Why exactly do we need to thank God?

Perhaps it is because you have a good job or are able to fend for yourself?
Then should the people who are struggling in work life not thank God?
Perhaps it is because your marriage is working so well. But should the sister whose marriage has just crashed not thank God?

Should I thank God because He has given me a big car or a big house?
Should I only thank God when I celebrate the number of my years on the planet?
Should He thank God because He is a Father and has been able to father 5 boys?

Shouldn’t the maker of the universe be thanked because He is God?
Isn’t the Maker and Creator of all things deserving of all praise and glory?
Isn’t the One who is all good entitled to praise and glory from His creation?
Isn’t one who is good whether life is good to us or not, worthy of all adoration?

So like ‘Casting Crowns’ , I will praise Him in the storm.
I will live my life for His glory because He is worthy.
Because He is awesome in power and majesty.
Because He is the Lord of all glory and the king of Kings.
Yes I will thank God because He is God.

Who needs an alarm when we have the Holy spirit?

Hello y’all,
How have we been? It’s been a while right? Forgive me, lots on my plate these days. Anyhu, today I want to share about the only true Spirit – The precious Holy Spirit.

I usually wake up at night to pray but this past week was super busy for me and I was looking for ways to excuse myself from waking up at night to do my devotion. So one day, I turned my alarm off and asked the Lord to wake me up at 4.00am (I secretly hoped He wouldn’t😅). By 3.53 I was awake lol and of course I had to do my devotion. Last night, I was getting convicted about somethings and as I apologised to the Lord, I asked him to wake me up at 3:30..I was awake at are the odds?
Before you start analysing and thinking ‘oh what a coincidence’ I must tell you that there are no coincidences with God. The Creator of the universe who planned and created the known and unknown universe does not do coincidences. He is a deliberate God. Read your Bible.

As my Daddy would say, for a Child of God there are no coincidences but only Godincidences. My alarm experience is a small thing, imagine what the Holy Spirit can do for you if you involve Him in every aspect of your life. He is interested in working in and with you, why don’t you let Him in today?

You are loved,
