What do you need for the multitude?

Jesus looked up and saw that a large crowd was coming toward Him, and He said to Philip, “Where will we buy bread for these people to eat?” JOHN 6:5 AMP There have been times I was in tight corners and God has in one way or the other pulled me out or through it. But next time I am in another tight place, I go back to wondering again… “How will I get out of this?” This was the case with Philip who have been following Jesus for a while, still he forgot the former miracles. I remember thinking […]

My way… Or the highway

John5:9-16 “…you can’t work on the Sabbath! It’s illegal to carry that sleeping mat!” * * Most times we are so fixated on doing things the same way… That is how it has always been done… This is the way it has been working for me… It should be like this E.t.c but…  Check out this excerpt from Francis Chan’s Crazy Love:   “Did you know that a caterpillar has 228 separate and distinct muscles in its head? That’s quite a few, for a bug. The average elm tree has approximately 6 million leaves on it. And your own heart generates […]

Holding on and Positioning to Receive

John5:1-8 I got three things from this story (Jesus and the sick man at the pool of Bethsaida). * * 1. The sick man had a reasonable excuse for not getting his healing even after 38years. The way we have a reasonable excuse for remaining where we are; no money, no long leg aka connection, the government is not paying/working well, the area where I live is not encouraging, many people are already doing the same thing, who will buy, you don’t understand my case is different… And on and on * * 2. The sick man was still there […]

I am too tired to care… But is He?

…Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. John 4:6 NIV Jesus was tired and hungry, but while He was resting this woman comes along…  Most times I love talking to myself more than people. My family and few friends are exceptions (my husband believes I am a chatterbox).  When people talk too much I tune them out, when my children are beginning to talk too much I tell them, “wow, is that so, let’s continue later okay? When I begin to talk too much, my […]

Who do I Trust… can I control this?

Jesus didn’t trust them because He knew what people were really like… No one needed to tell Him about human nature. John2:25 I use to have control/trust issues (still working on it…) No one could do my things as good as me, no one can take care of my children as good as I can. The first week I had Tori, my mom will always tell me to go and sleep… so I can recover fully but I wanted to stay and watch whatever was happening with the baby. When she got tired of telling me to rest she let […]

Where did it originate from… Wrong foundation

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son…John 3:18 If you don’t trust, how can you believe? I struggle with this… Because I have different things bombarding my reality everyday; telling me not to trust God. One of the instances where I was praying for God to help my faith, something from my junior secondary school days came to mind. I use to be a very optimistic and positive child but I discovered that things I look forward to […]

Are we going to die…what will happen?

John3 Nicodemus did not want to form ITK(I too know) or too proud to ask a small boy(even if His results showed there was more to Him) for answers. How many times have we missed chances or opportunities for growth because we feel the source is too young or beneath us, maybe we are ashamed of how the person will see you? I have been reading and hearing of eternal life but I have not really given it a deep thought… I felt, I have given my life to God, so that is sorted. But recently, Nuggie asked me. “Mummy […]

When your wine has finished…

John2:1-8 Jesus was invited to a wedding feast, the same way we invite Him into our lives. When the wine finished, He did nothing…  Ahn ahn, Oga see opportunity to show your power na, that’s what I would have told him if I were there… This made me realise, when I invited Him into my life, I also have the responsibility of bringing situations and things to Him whether big or small… Nothing like God knows already. I also discovered, I can have Jesus in my life and have my wine finish but there is the option of telling Him […]

are you ready for your requests and expectations?

Are You Ready For Your Requests And Expectations?

During our morning devotion today, we read Matthew 20 and something occurred to me. I discovered the two blind men who cried out to Jesus, kept saying “Lord have mercy on us.” Until Jesus stopped and asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” before they said what they wanted from Jesus.   I was thinking about this and I asked God… Father, look at what I saw. They did not say what they wanted and it was only Lord have mercy on us they kept saying till you stopped. Was it the lord have mercy that got […]

ultimate goal

The Ultimate Goal And Its Babies

Who hasn’t heard of “in the beginning God created…” Genesis 1:1 but what was the ultimate goal? I know it is safe to say everyone can quote that in their sleep. Today, that sentence took on a new light for me. You cannot get anything out of empty air. For everything you want, you need to start (create). To get the earth to be what it is, God started at the beginning by looking(Amplified Bible says brooding) at what is. He looked at the formless earth and said let there be light. the light could have made everything more glaring. […]
