Hey lovely fam! It’s been a while! Like a looooooong while…but I’m back! So stocked to know that my ardent followers are still here! Any who….I believe that you’ve been increasing in the Lord and growing stronger by the day as have I !
The last time we were talking about our purpose…and the next portion was to be on God’s plan for our lives! How exciting is it to know that God thinks of us and thought of our end before even we “began”! Therefore God knows the plans that He has for you…plan for…( I know you know this off head so let’s say it together….)
Jeremiah 10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
How relieving it is to know that we don’t have to wander around this earth: eating,sleeping,going to school,to work,getting married,retiring etc like billions of people are doing now! We were created for something GREATER THAN THAT! DO YOU BELIEVE SO?
You are not alone!

Jesus is the broken bread of life, by which we live and have our being. He was broken in Love that we may pertake of Him; his suffering and his Glory. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth –John 1:14.“…But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed –1Peter 4:13.
Blessed is the man whose delight is in the word of God and therein he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does PROSPERS. –…

Say this with me: “I was not born to sit on the couch, follow up on the latest series…get entertained as the people I’m watching get their pay.”
Don’t get me wrong…I have been an ardent follower of series…and if I count how many hours summed up into years that I’ve wasted being a potato couch….I’d rather not say…
Let’s delve into this very important matter. Purpose. What is your purpose here on earth? You are not a speck in the universe! You are very special to God- yes you! Even if everyone else thinks you are a nobody..ha ha that is their opinion….Ignore it! Allow me to use the line of thought I was going with last week. We were looking at Christ’s purpose here on earth. We all know why He came..but these verses explain it even further.
Luke 19:10: For the son of man is come to seek and save that which is Lost.(that’s the obvious one) He came to do the will of His Father, not His own! Every word that He spoke, was commanded by the Father!
John 12:49:(AMP) For I have never spoken on my own initiative or authority, but the Father Himself who sent me has given me a commandment regarding what to say and what to speak.
There was a man named Saul, and he was the persecuter of Christians. I wonder why he did that by the way. Maybe He had a troubled past, maybe he just had genuine hate for them…maybe he thought (however crazy this sounds) that it was his purpose…but whatever it is…made him the beast that he was. A terrible man. Here he was on his way to Damascus when something glorious happened! A light shone from the sky and he heard a voice speak…the very voice of God! asking him why he was persecuting Him(God)
Acts 26:15-16 And I said, who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But rise and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee.” And with that….was the birth of Paul as we know him!
Isn’t it amazing? how one’s life can be changed in an instant? here was a man on his way to his usual destruction…a man who had done so many evil things but just like that- his life was changed! he got to know of His purpose!
Now, don’t be like this guy I was preaching to once who was saying he will receive Christ when and only when Christ will appear to him(what a dangerous way to think). Don’t be unwise.
So how do you know your purpose? how do you get to find it out?
I) Be bold and ask God to show you(and expect an answer)
II) Be spiritually alert(how? by praying in the spirit/tongues and constantly reading the Word of God) and it will be surely revealed unto you. (Haha I know it might not sound easy, but trust me. It is. )
Always remember this: the generic purpose of your life is to bring glory to God, to honor Him and to expand His kingdom. Therefore, in everything that you do always ask yourself,” Does this bring glory to God?” Always.

Why was I created? What’s my purpose?……these are the questions that have bombarded my brain many times than I can remember and have led me to tears….tears of anger…of frustration…..but not any more.
If you have read my previous blog post on #The Grand Designer..you have a pretty good idea of the whole genesis of this story. I said that (according to a sermon by Pr Chris Ohyakilhome) that there are three things in life that if we become conscious of in life…we will never go wrong. They are: Purpose, Plan and Time.
When God does something, he doesn’t just wake up(okay, though He never sleeps) and do it. Everything He does has a PURPOSE…E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. He created man for a purpose…so that He may have fellowship with Him. He created the earth so that man could inhabit it…otherwise maybe we could be living in Heaven…or space…who knows?
Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it NOT IN VAIN, He formed it TO BE INHABITED: I am the Lord; and there is none else.
Even for Him to send Jesus to die for our sins..it was for a purpose. If you are like me…I know you have ever asked yourself, why didn’t God just erase the actions of Adam and Eve and just “pretend” that they hadn’t sinned…and all things gone back to normal? Yet He had to send His son to earth to die for us…Why? Again…purpose…and one of these days I will talk about Why Jesus had to die…
John 10:10 : The thief(devil) cometh not but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly(KJV) Yes! Jesus came because before that, we were dead! how? spiritually. He came that we might (notice He doesn’t say Shall…meaning that there is a condition for you to receive this life) have life and have it to the fullest! See, Jesus came to give us more than just life (by getting born again) He came so that we may have that life (spiritual re-union with the Father) and have everything else that pertains unto life!
Divine health, Prosperity, Money, Good success (coz there is bad success), Happiness, Peace, Healthy relationships….all that!
1 John 3:8: He that commiteth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, so that He might destroy the works of the devil
At this point you might be wondering why I haven’t gotten to the “depth” of success yet…haha my friend…the depth and very origin of success is from the Father….this is not a motivational blog it’s a spiritual one…a blog whose inspiration is the very Word of God….and dare I say..the Word works! It can never disappoint! Stay tuned….

When I was in Std( Grade)2 or 4..my best friend’s sister introduced me to this song….its only today that I have gotten to know it was done by Maranatha Singers( not sure if they are the original singers though)…so beautiful are the words! I am so blown away!
Before you were formed in your Momma’s womb..before even your mom and dad even met…you were already in God’s mind. He knew you, knew where you would live…your neighbors…your characteristics….wow how intimate our Creator is! Don’t you feel loved?
Look at this version… Jeremiah 1:5 Amplified Bible Classic Edition (AMPC)
5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. Glory!!!! How special you are!
It is no mistake that you are who you are, have that body type that you do(okay unless you under or over eat), have the talents you got, were born into the family you are in…it’s no mistake! Even babies born out of one night stands are planned for! Of course Daddy didn’t want that to be your situation, heck! Your birth was still planned! That’s why ABORTION IS SIN! It’s WRONG!
We go through life many times wondering why we were born. If you are a born again Christian, you know that your BASIC PURPOSE IS TO BRING GLORY TO GOD AND TO EXPAND HIS KINGDOM- ALWAYS KEEP THAT IN MIND. If for instance you work in a bar, how does that bring glory to God? That’s not today’s topic…but whatever business you are in, even if you haven’t found your purpose, should meet the above requirements. No excuse.
In this three part series, we get to know our Purpose in life and it’s divided into 3 parts: Purpose, Plan and Timing. When you become conscious of these 3 things, you shall experience tremendous growth in your life! Are you excited? Coz I am!
Before we even begin this topic, it is very important that one recognizes their identity first. You can only recognize your identity once you recognize your source of origin. You did not just appear on earth…NO. We have our Creator. Don’t you wonder why,even after you have achieved your successes, gotten that car you wanted, the girl you wanted, the party or concert you were fighting to get in…it’s never enough? There is always that emptiness inside?
Trust me…I have been there…and sometimes I also do wander..you know when you are like..how is life outside what I know? It never works. That emptiness you feel CAN ONLY BE FILLED BY GOD. Not booze, sex, a boyfriend/ girlfriend, party, money, 1000 Instagram followers…..NO. YOU CAME FROM GOD AND TO HIM SHALL YOU RETURN (If you accept Him that is)
I will have you say this prayer down here because….you have to secure your salvation. Being a Christian ain’t enough. Loving God ain’t enough, it’s following His instructions that count…See this..
5 Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [[a]even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.
Romans 10:9-11 AMPC 9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.
11 The Scripture says, No man who believes in Him [who adheres to, relies on, and trusts in Him] will [ever] be put to shame or be disappointed.
Therefore, say this Prayer below
“Dear Lord, Thank you for having your son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I believe that He came to die for the forgiveness of my sins and that He paid the full penalty of my sins on the cross. I believe that He died and resurrected. Today, I invite Him into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. In Jesus name I believe that I am now born again, a Child of God. Amen”

Whoa! 18 days since my last post? unbelievable. In Jesus name I am self disciplined.
I have been analyzing myself and discovered one thing. I have made the wrong people my friends, my priority. See, there is nothing wrong with having friends, friends that you count on when things go wrong, who pray,laugh and cry with you. In fact…even the Bible encourages it.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.”
We are stronger together. We all know that. The problem however comes when you over-rely on your friend and forget God’s role in your life. Like I said, I was thinking of myself and realized I had made that mistake, one too many times. In fact, that was the pre-cursor of most of the relationships I have been in(don’t look at me like that, they haven’t been too many haha) . I always found myself in a situation where I was in a rut, I had an issue that was at the moment very big, that I needed someone to help me walk with me. Harmless right?
I would share with this person and before I knew it..we were “together”. It was my therapy. The issue comes when that person is also going through a situation…who will help who? or when they disappoint you…and you get so mad at them and forget….we have The ONE who will never fail nor disappoint us.
When this year began,I challenged myself therefore…to always stop and pause before I rush to tell so and so my issues….it hasn’t been easy to be honest…coz you so badly want to share with someone your situation…but does it really help? if you have Godly friends like I do..they will pray with and for you…heck some will even sow a seed for you! Dear Lord!! *I thank God for my friends* However….I challenge you to learn to run to Him(Christ) first when you have an issue.
Let Him be your anchor, your go to person, your WCW your MCM…your bae lol….let Him be all that to you. Take everything and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G to Him in prayer and I know He CAN’T and WON’T disappoint. Take it from me…who is learning this ….even though I have been a Christian for so long….I am learning to run to Him FIRST!
As time progresses and even when the year ends…I will tell you of the testimonies of this new leap of faith for me.
Warning: This new direction will certainly make you a bit distant from your friends when they realize you don’t “over-share” like you used to….but I gurantee you it will be worth it. There is no use talking about your problems when you can solve them on your knees.
