GOD IS FAITHFUL.
I applied for a job 2 years ago at Nestle. The person who was supposed to deliver my credentials didn’t drop them off until January this year, and I was called to submit my credentials. To the glory of God, I got the job. Hallelujah!

THANK GOD FOR HEALING.
I want to thank God for the salvation of my soul because that is the greatest thing the Lord has done in my life. In 2019, I came to this church from Ibadan. Although that particular weekend I was sent to Lagos to come and see my daughter who was seriously ill in Lagos at the time and being an RCCG member from Ibadan, I came to this church while checking around for one. On the Sunday I first attended this church, it was our pastor’s 50th birthday and he was not around but his wife preached and after the sermon, she asked us to talk to God for whatever we wanted him to do for us. That very day I told God that if he healed my daughter I would come back to this church to testify and to the glory of God, He healed my daughter. Praise the Lord!

GOD SPARED MY LIFE FROM DEATH.
I want to thank God for His grace and the salvation of my soul. This March is my month of thanksgiving. An incident happened years ago which is why I come out in March every year for thanksgiving. On March 7th 1997, I walked into a shootout on my way back from work. That day I just closed my eyes and stood still waiting for a bullet to hit me but after 30minutes nothing happened not until one of the robbers held my shirt and immediately a bullet passed by me and hit the robber on the forehead and we both fell. I am grateful to God for sparing my life. Hallelujah!

THANK GOD FOR HIS INTERVENTION
I want to bless the Name of the Lord because He did not allow me to miss a wonderful opportunity. There was supposed to be a programme to be attended outside Nigeria. My passport had expired unknown to me until I was informed of the event scheduled for this month of March. I hastily went for renewal and they informed me it was going to be ready on the 15th of March meanwhile the programme was supposed to be from the 21st-26th. At a point, the date was changed because of APC stuff and the date was moved backwards but I was still supposed to get my passport on the 15th. At night I was called to bring my passport to the office in preparation for the conference and around 11:30 pm I texted back to inform him that my passport was not ready. But before I slept that night I prayed and told God that I must not miss this opportunity and I must come to testify concerning this. The next morning while driving to the office, I felt the urge to call somebody and immediately I did so, and he gave me the contact of the person in charge of the passport office at Alausa. I called the man and he asked me to send my capture form. Lo and behold, my passport was ready, in fact, it was on his table and he asked me to come pick it up. Meanwhile, last Saturday while the breakthrough and deliverance service was ongoing, I could not make it because I had a lot of running around to do. Pastor mentioned that for those who wanted to travel he saw turbulence on the way and I was not around but my wife stood in for me. I proceeded with my travel and indeed there was turbulence and I prayed to God. I was even thinking that I would not be here today because of the turbulence but God saved me.

GOD IS GOOD AND KIND TO ME
I want to thank God for victory over death and for financial breakthrough. This is my 4th month in this church. I came to Lagos and I have discovered a lot of things here but as a child of God, God stood by me and my husband. Early last month, I had a dream concerning my husband it was like a very big horse was drowned in an ocean and I was asking him to remove the horse on time. My husband called me the following week that he lost one of his staff. They informed him that the staff had been very ill but he was not aware. Secondly, I had plans of doing business here but getting a shop was difficult. I had to deal with supplies. I paid for my goods not knowing that those ladies were trying to swindle me. I discovered that they added money beyond normal, even more than their regular customers, I confronted them and they claimed that it was because I am a new customer. I prayed over it and amongst them they quarrelled, speaking their language but I could not understand and the Spirit of God told me that something was wrong. Then I went back to meet the manager who later asked me to see the accountant. Lo and behold, my problem was solved and they gave me the actual price that I was supposed to be purchasing the goods. I want to give glory to God for standing by me.
THANK GOD FOR HIS FAVOUR.
I want to thank God for adding another year to my womb opener; today’s her birthday and so I give God all the glory. It feels like yesterday. I also want to thank God for granting my prayer requests, it has been my heartbeat and I’ve been praying over and over and miraculously, God brought it to pass. Lastly, I want to thank God for favour because somebody paid for my ticket at the airport. I glorify God for He is faithful and for journey mercies.

Welcome to April; this month, I want us to examine the consequences of broken homes.
Do not be deceived, no one has a perfect marriage. Every couple has its challenges. Couples fight and fight badly, even the so-called Christian brothers and sisters who pretend as if nothing has happened when they get to church. However, it is the ability to revise one’s stand, communicate with respect, and be honest with one other that determines the survival of any marital relationship. If you remove pride and arrogance from your marital relationship, the marriage is on a solid foundation. Peace can thus stand the test of time.
Invest in your marriage by showing appreciation and tolerance. You are a stakeholder and your business first should be doing things to make your home peaceful and stable for you, your spouse and your children. Those whom you see that look like they have no challenges are just managing their challenges without allowing them to show to others.
A broken home is like war, no party goes uninjured. Each party goes with an injury they nurse for the rest of their lives. This is the whole truth but those involved, because of shame, do not say it out to people and no one learns from their mistakes. Instead, people believe that they are coping and happy, whereas if you ask them secretly, and if they will be truthful, they will tell you that where they are coming from is better than where they have eventually found themselves. The evil that you know is better than the evil you do not know. Human beings are not the same, and it is only when you are officially married and living together as husband and wife that you will know each other very well. It is when you are treating your spouse the same way you treated and behaved to the one you left before marrying this present one that you will realize that the former one was so good and nice enough to tolerate our excesses, misbehaviours and selfishness. Mostly, new spouses always prepare their minds that as soon as they are officially married to you they will never leave room or tolerate the abuse and maltreatment given to their predecessors. They will do all they can so that they will not find themselves at the same point.
No amount of success in life can compensate for failure at home. If your marriage fails, it will surely dent your destiny so be careful. Manage your home very well. What you will be treated to outside your home will not be what you bargained for. Think well before you take that step.
We are all managers when it comes to marriage. Manage your spouse and your spouse too should manage you. Marriage is not a bed of roses. True love proves in times of challenges and that is why I advise us to make sure you get married to the person that you are sure loves you because when challenges come, this will speak for you. There is no perfect marriage, singles please note that it requires hard work. Marriage is like a car that needs proper maintenance and service. If this is not done, it will break down unexpectedly and expose you both to danger, unhealthy circumstances, adultery and sins. Do not be careless about your marriage.
God gives you your partner as a raw material for you to mould the person that you deserve. Husbands, please mould loving caring women for yourselves. If you show hatred and a carefree attitude, your wife will soon look and behave exactly the way you treat her. You cannot sow hatred, bitterness, lack of affection and stinginess into your wife and expect a perfect, loving and caring woman. Others that get things like that from their wives have already sown such into them. Your marriage needs total commitment, unfortunately, Christian couples are not committed to their marriages the same way they are to their jobs, offices, positions, extended family and some, side chicks. This is sad. It is why we have not been able to achieve as much when it comes to marriage. Every marriage has a price to pay. Marriage is like a bank account, it is the money that you deposit that you withdraw. If you do not deposit love, peace and care and you think you can have lasting peace and joy outside your home from maids, friends and family or the other man or woman, you are joking and toying with your future. A little is enough for the wise, act on it today so that your prayers can be answered. God bless you.
I welcome you, especially to April, the month of Easter when we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is indeed a month of great significance and one of the lessons of Easter is the divine order of death and resurrection. Spiritually, death represents pain and labour, while resurrection can be interpreted as reward, gain or harvest. It is my earnest prayer for you that this month shall be a month when sorrow and pain will disappear from your life, and joy, expectations of hope and reward shall be ushered into your life in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
The Bible has declared concerning you that this month shall be a month of PEACE and REWARD. Isaiah 3:10 says “say ye to the righteous it shall be well with him“, this speaks of peace, joy and rest of mind. It is my prayer for you this month that trouble will be far away from you and your entire household, no evil will locate your place of abode, you shall go to bed in peace each day and wake up in peace, and no weapon formed against you or your household shall prosper.
The second part of the passage says “for they shall eat the fruits of their doings“. I believe this is an important promise and prayer you should hold on to this month. It addresses where you are coming from and where you are heading to. Each day you wake up you work, invest or sow seeds, and every labour and seed you have sown before now shall begin to yield for you great fruits in Jesus’ Name.
Please note that there are two types of fruits. Good Fruits and bad ones; it is the seed that you sow that determines your fruits. Endeavour to sow good seeds into your destiny this month.
How Do You Reap Good Fruits?
- You must be born again (John 3:16): Note that your life is a seed and you must sow it into the Kingdom of God.
- The soil must be good for the seed to germinate: The Kingdom of God is good soil to sow the seed of your life.
- Nurture the seed continuously for it to grow with the Word of God.
- Prepare your sickle and barns for harvest through prayers and praises.
- Thank God for bringing you safely into April 2022 in peace.
- Praise God for all the blessings in the past months, for prayers answered, and for the joy of the Lord in your heart.
- Father, give me the grace to love you the more this month in Jesus’ Name.
- I decree and declare that it shall be well with me and my entire household this month in Jesus’ Name.
- This month shall the month of great expectations for me in Jesus’ Name.
