Is your bible study bland?

Hello again and welcome to the blog. This week, we want to talk a bit about bible study. ” ‘But why did you need to search?’ he asked. ‘You should have known that I would be in my Father’s house.’ But they didn’t understand what he meant. Then he returned to Nazareth with them and…

The Work of Faith

Hello and welcome to my blog again! It’s always nice having you. There is a popular story in the bible where God turned the economy of a nation around, making them go from deficit to surplus in one night. Remember that story? The “By this time tomorrow” story? It’s in 2 Kings 7. The aide…

Lessons from Biblical Genealogies

Raise your hand if you have ever wondered why the Bible has several instances of records of genealogy. For we young people, who are usually tempted to be after something we can call “Rhema!”, I know more often than not, we would find most genealogical records a bore. But why does the bible keep showing…

Far above Rubies

A while ago, I was sharing with a friend some of the lessons my immediate season of life has been teaching me: the difference between who I am and what I am. I have mentioned this before in this post in March. While I was reading my bible sometime after the conversation, I found something…

Questions and Our Faith

One of the names I grew up knowing God was called was Unquestionable, with the underlying understanding derived from the respect for God’s Sovereignty and as an act of faith. This truly was beautiful. It was good to know that we would respect God’s wisdom enough not to know that He is always right even…

Seeking His face or His hands?

I need to start this out with a disclaimer: this post may not be for everyone. If the post is for you, you will understand what I am saying. As a child, I grew up in a Christian setting where prayers were mostly about God’s miracles of provision and protection, if you know what I…

Offences vs Purpose

I love the story of David a lot. He is one person in the Scripture whose meandering life story God has used to teach me a lot of lessons. If you have been conversant with this blog, you will probably know this already (Cue: the name of the blog). Today, I want to share another…

Copy and Paste

Have you read Isaiah 2 and Micah 4? Has it ever occurred to you that verses 2 -4 of Isaiah 2 and verses 1-3 of Micah 4 said the very same thing? What about 2 Kings 18 and Isaiah 37? This particular combo even looks like copy and paste! I mean it was word for…

Even our faith!

When we come to God in Thanksgiving, we are usually wont to thank Him for the things He has done for us that we judge good. Even when we thank Him for the bad times, a common mindset is either to employ Thanksgiving as a way to get God to change them (which isn’t wrong)…

God is not slow

“When the people set out to cross Jordan, the priests who were carrying the Ark of Covenant went ahead of them. Now it was the harvest season, and the Jordan was overflowing its banks. But as soon as the feet of the priests who were carrying the Ark touched the water at the river’s edge,…

Lessons from an Aunty

I have a cute nephew. He’s 8-months old today. Well, he is one of my six nephews, so all of you should respect me. Lol! Because I live with the family, I have noticed a particular trait in him. Unlike his older brother who as a baby was many times content to play on his…

When encouragement fails

Have you ever been down to the point where you don’t even want to be encouraged? I remember a friend sharing with me some years ago after a major incident happened to her that she got to that verge that she could have slapped the next person who says “all things work together for good”…

Borrowed Armor

Last week, we learnt the lesson of the preciousness of our quiet seasons from the life of David in 1 Samuel 17. Click here to find it. Today, I would like to share on another lesson I learnt from the same chapter. “The Lord who saved me from the claws of the lion and the…

Quiet seasons

The popular story of David and Goliath of 1 Samuel 17 is one story that I have learnt from over and again. Today, I want to share one lesson the story that has been helping me hold an wholesome perspective in my quiet seasons. “So David left the sheep with another shepherd and set out…

XXVI; The ride

I knew I was going to post something on my blog today for some days, for a while, I didn’t know what. It wasn’t that I had nothing to write about; rather I had to choose from the number of things on my mind. Yesterday, I eventually settled on this: I wanted to share about…
