​Though It Cost Much; Get Wisdom ii — November 14, 2017

​Though It Cost Much; Get Wisdom ii

Hi guys, in my last post, I started a talk on wisdom and the types we have, so , I’ll continue by sharing two ways by which I know wisdom can be acquired.

* The first and foremost way to get wisdom is to Meditate on what God’s Word says concerning your area of purpose, as well as other related areas. This could be achieved with this short recipe;

– Search for scriptural verses for the different areas of your life and ruminate on them.

– Affirm them.

– Repeat the process continuously.

– Be committed to doing what the scripture instructs.

Truth is your perception and your approach to life will change over time as you will start to approach problems based on how God himself would deal with the situation as you meditate on God’s word. Meditation enables you to transform God’s word to becoming a practical solution. Though it may be contrary to your preconceived ideas and feelings, the truth of God’s word is able to withstand the storms of life.

Every christian has a standing promise of the supply of Wisdom on the one condition that you ask God confidently and not waver in your expectation.

* Impartation is another way to acquire wisdom. This can be referred to as the transference of wisdom through association. Impartation from Moses to Joshua is an example. Joshua gained all his skills (Mannerisms, Command, Authority, and Military strategies – which are similar to Moses’) not because he was given any special training by Moses but because of his association with Moses.

An important factor for Impartation is the Attitude of the receiver. Such a person must consciously be positioned under a tutor or mentor, with the expectation to receive the impartation. Wisdom by impartation can be attained through books and other media materials by people who have been successful in their fields.

Commit yourself to getting wisdom through the word of God and Humbly associate yourself with people who have gone ahead of you in life.

Much Love,

​Though It Cost Much; Get Wisdom — November 11, 2017

​Though It Cost Much; Get Wisdom

“I never approach any problem on common sense, because common sense will only yield common results.”

                                – David Oyedepo

According to the Dictionary, Wisdom is the ability to apply relevant knowledge in an insightful way, especially to different situations from that in which the knowledge was gained, or, the ability to make a decision based on the combination of knowledge, experience, and intuitive understanding. Wisdom can therefore be said to be the acquisition and intelligible application of knowledge acquired in order to generate results.

Overtime, two types of wisdom has been discovered which are termed;

– Learned wisdom

– Divine wisdom

– Learned wisdom: This is the result of trial and error. It is the wisdom gotten through people who have given themselves to applying various sources of information to solve a problem and the processes were recorded to be taught to others. Mankind wasn’t meant to function at the level of trial and error type of wisdom but if not for Adam’s sin.
– Divine Wisdom: This is the main thing. Since God is the custodian of all wisdom, he has laid up in store for his children the wisdom enough to bring a glorious manifestation of their purpose. This wisdom is the 🔑 that will elevate you from the place of discovering purpose to walking in the full manifestation of your purpose on earth.
King solomon (a historical king of Israel and the richest man who ever lived) once said, “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding”.
What we’re taught in our schools are mostly learned wisdom but we have in our supernatural lifestyle package the enablement to express divine wisdom like Adam was able to name all animals and classify them by divine wisdom. His mental faculties were supernaturally endowed by God for solutions at a superior level (If it’s available to one, it’s available to all).
Relevant Scriptures: Prov. 2:6-7; 4:7-9, Eccles. 10:10.

Outsmart The Devil ii — November 2, 2017

Outsmart The Devil ii

Allow Peace in your ❤!

You cannot live your life trying to get back at someone or prove a point to someone and continue drinking poison and expecting the person to die of it.

Someone once said that to forgive a person for a suffered wrong is to release a prisoner and then realize that you were the prisoner who was released. When we walk in unforgiveness we keep ourselves in prison.
The devil can be so cunning that he’ll make you lose even when you’re on your right by allowing you to harbour bitterness towards someone. You need to know that that moment when you have hurt feelings against someone you’re also putting shackles on yourself because you’re depriving your soul the freedom it should have.

Outsmart the devil by letting go. Allow Love to flow in and through you. Say that prayer crying. Forgive and set your soul free from that labyrinth cage of bitterness.

Much Love,

Outsmart The Devil — November 1, 2017

Outsmart The Devil

Forgive Him/Her/Them. Forgive Yourself. Forgive your past. Allow Peace.

All my life, the hardest prayer I have ever prayed is the prayer of Forgiveness (not for myself but for someone). When one beautiful sunday morning, my pastor said we should pray for anyone who has ever wronged us and let go, I was amused because in my mind I didn’t see the need or thought I was pained, so for some seconds I didn’t even know what to say or who to pray for until suddenly there was an outburst of emotions and I figured there’s this one person in a bid not to feel pain, I’ve suppressed his memories from my life. Opening my mouth to let go and pray for him was the hardest prayer of my life. I did it in between painful tears and a tight chest then ​I realized sometimes its hard to do but Forgiveness is not about how you feel, you just have to do it when you do it. Broken heart. Tearful eyes. Painful memories.
Forgiveness is tears and salt and a whole string of phrases like ‘I let it go,’ ‘I forgive’ and a decision to not react or flare up at the sight or memory of that person or incident. I did the prayer struggling with my emotions and fighting the will to let go and it wasn’t until I finished the prayer I could breathe properly. I never realized I was carrying such an heavy load until I finished that prayer.

Forgiveness is smiling through your teeth even when that person is not sorry and playing dumb like you’re not bearing scars. After that prayer, I didn’t even need to suppress my memories, letting go just happened naturally and I don’t feel hurt anymore.

Happy New Month!✌

Meditation v — October 29, 2017

Meditation v

What other 5, 7 or 20 steps to a Purposeful and Successful life do you seek when the secret is encapsulated in just one scriptural verse.

Daily meditation puts you in charge of your life because your concept of reality won’t be dictated by the challenges you face in life but by what the word of God says about you.
By chewing and meditating on what his word says, we have a better concept on how our lives are meant to be and how easy it can be achievable if only we can surrender our will to him and allow his plans and ways which are always better than ours.

Extra text; Psalm 1:1-3

Meditation iv — October 28, 2017

Meditation iv

It is only a man who has come to the knowledge of God’s thoughts for his life that can confidently boast in His words and that man will have nothing to worry about because he knows His thoughts towards him are good.

Meditation is a process; just like changing your paradigm, it involves you getting rid of your own thoughts, perceptions and rationales and it also open up your mind to be formed by God’s thoughts.

Meditation iii — October 27, 2017

Meditation iii

Meditation enables you to develop a healthy and progressive relationship with God.

People’s plans fail not because God never spoke to them but because they stopped listening to God. This was discovered by the early apostles so they appointed deacons that they (apostles) could focus more on prayer.

Much Love,

Meditation ii — October 24, 2017

Meditation ii

This is one of my best scriptures that I meditate on especially when fear comes creeping in, I’m equipped with all it takes to live a fulfilled life.

Meditation improves our ability to fellowship with God. It enables us to commune with him in fellowship as he reveals more to us about our purpose, receive wisdom to tackle obstacles we face on the journey to fulfilling purpose and precise instructions on how to grow effectively in our purpose.
Much Love,

Meditation

What an assuring thought of God to meditate on today!

Sometimes we need to do more than pray by meditating on God’s word which gradually renew our minds to the thoughts of God and allow its application in our daily lives.

Reduce the noise affecting your communication with God in prayer through MEDITATION.

Much Love,

Revisiting The Child In You ii — September 18, 2017

Revisiting The Child In You ii

We’ve all got at least one

Usually people worry a lot about why they are not making progress in life thereby choking their ability to allow their potentials find expression. People worry if they’ll get things right; If their purpose can afford them the lifestyle they desire and they end up working for a living with no joy of living. Working in purpose makes life look like a playground. You just enjoy what you’re doing without worries. You take limits off of your ability and there is motivation to push further.
Truth is, I’m on the path of discovery too and along this way, I’ve decided not to put limits on the dreams I’ve conceived and I’m sure I’m on the right path because I’ve read, see and talk to people who living a purposeful life has worked/is working for. 

You’ll always enjoy doing what you’re passionate about.

The principle is as simple as doing that one thing you enjoy, gives you peace, completes you but you’ve been having cold-feet starting or resuming to do. Go back to your canvass and bring those imaginations to life. Go to your early days and sort through the crumbs of your childhood dreams. Revisit the child in you and dream again (I’m sure you will be amazed by what you’ll find). Take the brakes off of your mind. Neglect thoughts of whether the dreams are achievable or realistic (It’s all in the head), Read – Quote-Restrictions. Let your thoughts blossom to the fullness of what could be of your life and you’ll be surprised to find these activities are within your comfort zone, don’t relax in your zone but stretch… Break the barriers of your mind and start living out your dreams.

An Exercise;

“If there were no limitations and failure, what would you dare to do? Where would your imagination take you?”

Much Love 💘,
