Choose to enjoy your transition…

life seasons

Some of you are experiencing an extremely dampened pace in your lives right now, and it may be an uncomfortable, even painful switch from the life you’re used to. I am not sure what it is for you, maybe God has led you into a place you thought would be booming with fruitfulness…only instead of what you expected, now your steps have ground to a near halt. If you are one of those people who has always had things plain easy and now have to deal with a slow season, it’s plain difficult to stay stable in the face of a slow transition. The year just crossed into the second half and you cannot seem to find God in your circumstance. Instead you are burdened by the apparent time lapse in the delivery of your blessings...

The Reward of Consistency

Welcome to February!

How was January for you? For many of us, January was a month of decisions, of fasting, praying and trusting God, generally just positioning ourselves for the year, and making the required changes.

However, I am sharing today about the lethargy that tends to set in when we do not see immediate results. Have you ever tried to axe down a tree? You keep hitting it in the same place with the same axe and it looks like nothing is happening.

But you know what?

After all those hits in the same place, it simply takes a final hit to bring the tree down. The axe hit that brings down the tree is not the strongest hit; it is simply the most consistent hit. So, don’t stop hitting the tree simply because you can’t see the tree falling down. Keep at it…stay consistent.

Timing is everything!

Timing is Everything

You have probably heard the phrase, “Timing is everything,” many times. And there is indeed a great deal of truth in that statement. Think about it; the difference between a good joke and a bad one is a person’s sense of timing. An appropriate pause makes a joke, while an inappropriate pause can kill the same joke. Imagine asking a favor when someone is under a lot of stress or angry. Timing is also very essential in cooking; a hamburger on the grill is raw meat if cooked for too little time and a clump of charcoal if it is cooked too long. The list is endless.

Timing is indeed everything!

Timing is everything 1

Those who WAIT on the LORD will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. [Isaiah 40:31 (NLT)]

Consider Moses who grew u...

Hurry

Last year I travelled to the UK for my ‘brother’s wedding. I call him a brother because he has been my friend for almost 18 years and truly is a brother.  So you can imagine how excited I was as I made plans to attend from Lagos. Infact, I thought the dates had stuck somewhere in my head.  I arrived the UK a few days before and the night before the wedding, I called and spoke to him and his then fiancée, excitedly saying to them that I would see them the next day which to me was their wedding day.

So it was that I got dressed, bid my friend with whom I stayed good bye, carefully checking and noting my bus numbers.  I boarded the bus and then walked a few metres from the bus stop to the church. When I got there, it was quiet and there was no activity...

‘In His Time’

In-His-Time

He has made everything beautiful in its time…Eccl 3:11

 Do we remember the song by the Maranatha singers?

‘In His Time…He makes all things beautiful in His time…

Lord please show me every day as you are teaching me your way

That you do just what you say in your time’

I’m writing this to encourage those of us that think that God is running late and perhaps are tempted to ask ‘God why me’?. Last night, I had a conversation with a friend who seemed to be asking God ‘why me?’ and who sometimes felt standing up for God hadn’t quite paid out. Just reminded me of Elijah, who after standing up to Jezebel felt that he was standing alone. Imagine,  this mighty man of God that had held back the rain by the word of his mouth was terrified by a woman’s threats and ran away...
