BE DELIBERATE…BE STRONG..!!!

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus…”2 Timothy 2:1 This scripture always gets my attention. Apostle Paul, wrote to Timothy his protege and urged him to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. Grace by itself is potent and strong. So why would Timothy be…

BE DELIBERATE…LOVE!!!

‘Beloved let us love one another…let brotherly love continue…! 1John4:7; Heb.13:1 Love is our nature and indeed the fruit of the Holy Spirit in us. This statement must move from the pages of the Word of God into our practical lives. We should be deliberate about entrenching love as our lifestyle. Without love we all…

BE DELIBERATE…ENCOURAGE SOMEONE…!!!

By now, you probably will agree with me that things don’t just happen. We must make things happen. To do this, we must be deliberate. Deliberate to ensure we are either the person making these good things to happen or we encourage their happening- deliberately. We all need encouragement from time to time-though differently. But…

BE DELIBERATE…GO FOR YOUR MIDWEEK SERVICE!!!

There’s more to making a midweek service than just keeping up with attendance or ticking a solidarity with the pastor or catching up with a bosom friend in church. When we show up for a meeting it tells, that that meeting is important to us and defines our expectations. If I see you in a…

BE DELIBERATE…LISTEN TO A MESSAGE!!!

In Christ Jesus we must understand our duty of being deliberate to put in certain actions before we will get their corresponding results according to how it is written in God’s Word. We must constantly reset our nominal values into kingdom values through the Word. This is what makes it obvious when Jesus said we…

BE DELIBERATE…BE PREPARED…LOOK UP!!!

The advice to be prepared will always be useful. But today I refer to the preparation to meet the Lord. This we know, either through death or rapture there’d be a meeting with the Lord. May this day come quickly as we become fully known as we are known. Hallelujah! But I’m compelled to observe…

BE DELIBERATE…LEARN!!!

‘…then shall ye know…(when and) if ye follow on to know…! Hosea.6:3; 2Tim.3:7 As a student of life and a custodian of the Word of God’s grace I am convinced that some and indeed most of our earnest prayers have been answered already. I have reason to believe that it is because we are slow…

BE DELIBERATE…ACHIEVE!!!

Nothing quells insults like results. Believe me, there are some things that will end the moment your results start to speak and demand respect by itself. Therefore, this moment I charge you to become result oriented, purpose driven and ‘achievement conscious’. By achievement conscious I certainly do not refer to being achievement drunk. I refer…

BE DELIBERATE…STUDY GOD’S WORD!!!

Generally, it feels more effective to exert energy into prayers, fasting and other physical activities than we will normally do to reading..let alone study…and that of the scriptures for the matter. To read is to comprehend written knowledge or information. To study is the devotion of time and attention to acquiring or mastering a particular…
