Personal Development

Money, fame, popularity and gadgets are the things that go with success today. Many have come by these through hard work, diligence and providing relevant services or products for others. They have come by success the hard way but they did it with right hearts. No doubt, many have gone about it the crooked way and have been termed successful too. It is possession of these things that define success in our world today. No wonder many go at it anyhow as long as they can have it. This is the foundation of corruption. The man in his “fallen state” sees success as the acquisition of these things and aims at getting them no matter the cost. Some have achieved these at the expense of their vital relationships, like family and marriage. Few have done things right, namely developing their gifts and engaging in services beneficial to humanity. They did not...

SETTING AND ACHIEVING GODLY GOALS To set a goal is to the take the initiative, that given the perceived available resources, and the given circumstances, one desires a particular  outcome and one goes for it. Goal setting is the art of purposing in ones heart what exactly one wants to achieve or accomplish. It has many benefits as it helps us steward our time and possibly our potential.

It can be used by an individual or any organisation and the results have been phenomenal...

Entering into Your Prophetic Destiny Your prophetic destiny is that which God has ordained for you! What God ordained for you is in God's heart, waiting for you to discover and develop yourself so you can participate with God for the fulfilment of it. God has His plans for everyone He created! We have the power of choice to choose to cooperate and participate with God or do otherwise. His plans are for our good! Jeremiah 29:11-14 (AMPC) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search...

Determination, Discovery, Discipline will lead to fulfilling Destiny Determine to press into the future God has for you. Your determination starts with decisions. Decide to lay hold of all God has for you. Some decisions include: letting God’s Word be final authority in your life; deciding to be a student of life and a student for life; letting the Holy Spirit teach you things you don’t know or don’t have the right orientation about. Decide to watch your tongue and be a doer of God’s Word. Some things are not properly learnt because the inner motives may not be correct. So many times people want to obey an instruction from God but don’t check if their motives are in harmony with a God’s way of doing things. When motives are wrong, God’s purposes go unfulfilled even though the people believe or think they are obeying God.   James 1:21-25 (NKJV) Doers-Not Hearers Only Therefore lay...

Our response to God in the seasons of our lives always opens up new seasons to us. When Phillip left the revival meetings in Samaria to go to the road leading to the desert, he went from being a city mover to potentially being a nation changer. History has it that the eunuch he led to the Lord was responsible for affecting Ethiopia with the Gospel. Phillip’s obedience opened up new vistas for kingdom growth. When Apostle James said we should count it all joy when we fall into diverse trials, we are learning how to turn seasons of trial into joyful ones; hence one season is brought to a quick end as the next season gets activated. When Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises in the prison, God sent an earthquake to bring deliverance for them. Acting on the Word of God is known to bring victorious seasons into...

To effectively deal with the influences generated on these mountains, we need to know what exactly is going on and then allow God to give insights as to how to mount up these mountains and take out the demonic influences on them. The strategy must include prayer and action. In this study we will deal with prayers. Every born again, Spirit filled, believer needs to know how to pray and how to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit in prayer. He is our helper, especially in prayer.

They take full advantage of the fallen nature in mankind to enslave and deceive humanity so much so that human beings become self-destructive. What God intended for good is mis-interpreted so that it will be used for destruction? Apostle Paul says “We wrestle not against...

These questions come up from time to time as we all try to assess where we are as far as our spiritual life is concerned. It comes up in helping others see where they are as we try to help individuals get a hold of the direction their lives are going. What happens in your daily life is the greatest determining factor as to what you will become in the future. Your future is seen in the seeds you are sowing today. Whatever you spend your time and money doing today will determine where your confidence and expectations lie tomorrow. Spiritual laws are governed by Kingdom principles and they are well related to agricultural laws of sowing and reaping. I believe three aspects...

“Let no one despise (look down on your youthfulness), but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine (teaching). Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” 1 Tim. 4:12-16. The Apostle Paul was saying a lot to Timothy, his disciple, who had taken on leadership responsibilities in the above passage. Amongst other things he is saying to us that we should understand the potentials that lie within us and...
