Unlearning and Re-learning

We all love receiving a prophetic promise from God but not the process attached to it. We envision the promised future and wish it’ll come without a journey of transformation. However, all prophecy initiates process – a journey that will take us from where we are now to where we’re supposed to be. The question to ask is – what kind of person do we need to become to inherit the promise? Many are touched and inspired by a prophetic word […]

Living From The Inside Out

There was a season in my life, for a few years, where I’d experience tangible manifestations of God’s Presence. It was almost as though I’d feel Him tangibly in my physical senses.  I’d shake under the power of God, laugh when His Spirit touched me, and feel the force of His power when I prayed for people. I enjoyed this season immensely as it made me realise His nearness and reality, and the realm of the supernatural. Then, it all […]

The Sacred Place of Solitude

I’m a relational introvert. This may sound like an oxymoron but, to put it simply, I love being with people. But not all the time – I need space and time alone to recharge my emotional batteries. Let’s be honest, being with people can sometimes be draining. Yet some of us are constantly in the presence of people, needs, demands, and expectations. Our children are pulling us, our family needs emotional support, friends look for help. The groups we lead […]

What If You Were Twice As Courageous?

I often ask myself if I could do more for the Kingdom if I were twice as courageous. This self-questioning usually exposes my reducing the possibilities in my life to accommodate my fears. When we insulate ourselves from what we’re afraid of, we don’t feel the emotions of fear and are therefore lulled into believing we’re free from it. We rationalise our greatest fears and call it practical wisdom. Fear often masquerades as pragmatism. My first experience on a plane […]

The Pathway To Promotion

Since I was a young believer, I was taught to aspire to leadership. I learned that there’s a price to pay, but the reward and fulfilment will be well worth the price. Indeed the joy of impacting lives as a leader is beyond what I imagined. It isn’t just a journey of satisfaction and rewards but also one of facing our pain, insecurities, and fears. If we say “yes” to God’s call to leadership, He’ll place us in situations that […]

Faithfulness & Self-promotion

One of the most important qualities spoken about in the Bible is faithfulness. Proverbs 20:6 says, ‘Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?’  God has called us to be faithful in small things, which shows they’re esteemed and remembered by Him. We’re evaluated and rewarded in eternity based on the small things we do in this age. Knowing this does something powerful in our hearts. It gives us strength and confidence to be […]

The Samuel Initiative

Four years ago, I heard these words ‘The Samuel Initiative’ vividly in a dream. I’ve never heard anything like that and had no idea what that meant. Wanting to dig deeper into its significance, I began to study the book of 1 Samuel. The nation of Israel had a priesthood that had lost its vision and was corrupt. They had a form of godliness but denied its power. God was desirous of birthing something new amidst a barrenness. The story […]

Thought on Marriage from a Newly-Wed

I spoke recently for the first time ever at a wedding and it got me thinking about marriage. I add a disclaimer that I’m no expert on marriage. I’m in fact a beginner, having been married only for a short three years, hence the title of this blog post. The most commonly referred-to passage in the Bible on marriage must be Ephesians 5. Here, Paul established an incredibly high standard for both husbands and wives. The men love it whenever […]

The Seed of Greatness (Part 2)

Relentless striving for greatness often drives people to whatever it takes to fulfill their goals. Many misinterpret their capacity for greatness to mean worldly achievements. 20 years later, we may be at the peak of our careers, with houses, cars, and luxury travel but, to be brutally honest, it only leaves us empty and disappointed. How does God feel about this? He created us, planting the seed of greatness deep within, only to watch us pursue a wrong fulfillment. He […]
