Favour: The Difference Maker

I have learnt that where your brilliance or intelligence can’t take you, God’s favour will get you there.

He was one of the wisest and richest men that ever lived. Scripture reported that he was wiser than Daniel.

Never let disappointment steal your joy or hope.

I know a friend who recently visited Sitges, a coastal town in Spain’s Catalonia region, southwest of Barcelona.

Elon Musk; ‘Try Jesus.’

I wish I could tell Elon Musk who has been married three times to try Jesus.  What he is unknowingly seeking for (even though he doesn’t believe in God) is Jesus.

Live Intentionally.

Intentional living has been on my mind for some time now. The reason why I shared these two quotes on social media recently “Live intentionally!

One of such people with tremendous potential is the Biblical Samson. Born as a result of God’s plan to do a great work for God and deliver His people. However, ... Read More »

Prosperity is part of the package.

After reading, Costi Hinn’s interesting article – Benny Hinn is my uncle, but prosperity preaching isn’t for me – in Christianitytoday.com, I shared it on my Facebook page and asked whether my friends agree with Costi. Unlike me who didn’t agree with everything Costi said, majority of those that responded agreed with him…I do believe God wants all of us ... Read More »
