OVERCOMING TEMPTATIONS (2)

In the first part of this series, overcoming temptations (1), it was made clear that for as long as we are in human nature, we are bound to face temptations. Christianity is not immunisation against temptation, but empowerment for triumph. From 1 Cor 10:13, we saw these three truths: The temptation is common. God is faithful. Don’t waste your time focusing on whatever temptations you are facing. Search for the way to overcome. Christians are not built to fight temptations. Rather we are made to overcome them. We are called…

8 THINGS SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO BEFORE 8 AM

Success is something you attract by the person you become – Jim Rohn. Success is not in the ‘doing’ but in the ‘becoming.’ Success is not what you do, but what you become. Dr. Paul Enenche said, “Your habits determine your habitat.” You need to develop successful habits to make success your natural and continuous habitat. You are built and wired to succeed. You were not created a failure. Success does not make people; people create success. Every successful person you see has developed and become accustomed to a series…

DON’T LET THE CROWD STOP YOU

Among every congregation, you find the crowd. Along the path to freedom, there is a group called, “the crowd.” In this context, the crowd does not have to be large numbers of people. The crowd does not always have to denote or connote a massive number of people in a place. The crowd could be a small number of people at the moment in time with the effect of myriads of people. It could be just one person whose attitude, speech and actions make you feel like the whole world…

Time Check – The First 100 days!!!

Today is the 100th day of the year. Awesome! Isn’t it amazing that it seems like only yesterday the year begun and we have already amassed 100 days in 2019? In some political circles, the first one hundred days of an administration is a time to review and celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of the new regime. Taking a cue from the foregoing, this is a time to pause and praise. Pause to think about the goodness of our great God in the year so far. Praise Him for His…

HOW TO MOVE FROM SETBACKS TO GLORIOUS COMEBACKS (2)

Life is full of challenges and unexpected setbacks. How we navigate through the setbacks we encounter determine how we become going forward. No impediment can keep you down unless you let it. You can turn your setback into a comeback if you put on the right attitudes to life. While preparing this post, I heard the news of Tiger Woods’ great comeback. He won the Masters after eleven troubling years of a series of emotional, physical and probably financial setbacks. He didn’t let his setback keep him back. Today he…

How To Move From Setbacks To Glorious Comebacks (1)

The past two nights of football in the UEFA champions league have experienced some unprecedented occurrences. Teams that had been virtually ruled out of progressing to the next stage of the competition put up some amazing comebacks to make it through against the predictions of people. Here are four lessons we can take in from these matches: 1. Everything is possible. There is nothing that cannot be achieved. As long as it is conceivable it is achievable.

DON’T MIND THE DUST

Don’t mind the dust…When driving to work, I see a host of beggars sitting by on a dusty roadside. Motorists drive by with speed not minding the dust raised. It’s amazing to see these beggars stay by the roadside from dawn till dusk unperturbed by the volume of dust, their minds unwaveringly focused on what they can gain from the passersby. A similar focus is requisite for goal fulfilment. In life, people will surely lift dust at you. Be focused enough to refuse the dust from distracting you, because at…
