WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR PRAYER LIFE IS A MESS

I know you sincerely want to build your prayer life. You really do. I see that you have tried making plans to grow spiritually but nothing seem to be working. Today, you are on top in your communion with God, but tomorrow you feel so fagged out that you cannot even utter a word of prayer. You are tired.  Tired of struggling with your prayer life. You want this fellowship badly but somehow other...

WHY IS IT DIFFICULT TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE?

For years I placed my experiences above the Word. It wasn’t a deliberate action but somehow life just happened to put before me several challenges that had me figuring out solutions logically and searching for answers from the society. I must confess, there was a time I was wary of people prone to using sentences like, ‘God led me to that person.’ or ‘The Holy Spirit showed me this.’ I regarded...

LET’S GO TO THE GYM: 1 POWERFUL SECRET TO A HEALTHY SPIRITUAL LIFE

I grew up in an assembly where speaking in tongues wasn’t exactly a common spiritual activity. In fact the only time I saw any trace of this was after a teaching on the Holy Spirit during our devotion at home. Dad began to speak in tongues during the prayer session.  I remembered I stopped praying and stared at my father. It was all strange and weird to me. When I met Christ, I came to realize...

STOP RUNNING AWAY

For two months, Bunmi didn’t show up at the drama rehearsals and that got me worried. Bunmi was one of our best actresses. I still remember the day I was assigned a role to be her best friend. It was the smoothest rehearsals ever. She got into character from the first day the script was handed to us. By the time we presented the play at the annual youth conference, the congregation was moved to...

I’LL SEE YOU THERE

Many believers are not expecting to get to heaven when they leave this earth. Their actions show that their final salvation is a game of luck. Let’s say I pass a note to believers containing this statement; ‘If you die now, where will you spend eternity. Heaven or hell?’ A lot of them will sigh, squeeze the piece of paper and then close their eyes. ‘God, it’s your mercy I need o.’ Some will...

THERE IS A WAY OUT OF THAT STRUGGLE

Lord, I am ready to go with thee both to prison and to death. Biko, what exactly is wrong with that statement? Does it not appear like words of consecration? Aren’t those words similar to the lyrics from some of our hymns and the songs we sing? Yet look at Jesus’ reply to those exact words made by Peter. …And he said, ‘I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt...

THAT I MAY KNOW HIM: DEVELOPING INTIMACY WITH JESUS

Have you ever been faced with a challenge that overwhelmed you and you cried and decided you weren’t going to continue with Christ because you felt it wasn’t worth following the Lord anymore? But after an hour or more, you went down on your knees asking God for help and telling Him how much you trust and love him. There is a level you’ll get to in your relationship with God where you become so...

LORD, CAN I REALLY DO THIS?

Written by Ife Grace I almost fainted that Sunday morning as I sat somewhere in the middle row of our large church auditorium. Did the Pastor just mention that I was the new Youth Pastor? My husband was sitting beside me. He reached for my hand and squeezed it gently. Gradually I released my breath but my heart wouldn’t stop pounding.   ‘Where is Sister Francisca Badejo?’ I raised my head to find...

WHERE IS YOUR SWORD?

In a dream, Nike gave a muscular broad chested six-pack blood shot eyed man two hot blows on his face. The guy roared before landing on the floor and after a few jerks, went still. When she woke up, she was covered in sweat. She pulled the sheets away and jumped out of the bed. ‘Are you okay?’ Nike’s husband, Dayo, asked. He was up already, getting dressed for work. When she...

BUT THE PLAYBOY IS NOW BORN-AGAIN

Written by: Ife Grace. When Bola got out of the conference room at about 3p.m, her stomach was rumbling. She had only taken a cup of coffee since morning and even though she had a pack of sandwich in her bag, what she wanted was some real food.  She dropped her laptop on her table and grabbed her purse before rushing out of the office. In the eatery across her office, she set a tray of fried rice...
