Self Development Tips For 2017

(Items 2, 9, 11, 14, 25, & 26 are very key to me)

  1. Make friends with successful people and occasionally buy them gifts and surprise them with lunch because successful people always give and hardly get, so when you give them, they value the gift a lot.
  2. Get a mentor/coach and follow his instructions and respect the relationship. Never beg your mentor/coach for money or disrespect his or her privacy.
  3. Make new positive friends as often as possible and ensure you keep the communication line open. Create a network of friends and not just connections.
  4. Show kindness to everyone. Some small boys today will be big boys tomorrow. The biggest dog in the neighborhood was once a puppy. And keep the information/secret to yourself.
  5. Always plan ahead and be proactive. He that plans the future work less in the future.
  6. Listen to speeches and messages from great teachers. Both religious and educational.
  7. Attend seminars and training in any area you need to improve yourself. Train the trainer, personal development, public speaking, sales etc.
  8. Have the habit of keeping a pen and a writing pad handy because ideas come in the form of flashes. The smallest pen is bigger and better than the biggest brain.
  9. Make sure at every point in time you are reading a book. If you spend 20 minutes reading daily, for 52 weeks you would have consumed 1,000,000 words.
  10. Stay away from television as much as possible. You can watch educational channels. Men with big TVs sit in front of them to watch men with big libraries.
  11. Put control over your mouth, never say evil of any man, what you are not certain of should not be said. Say good of all men.
  12. Always show appreciation for any good deed you received.
  13. Always help someone in need.
  14. Live a debt free life. What you can’t pay cash for is not your size.
  15. Give out loans that you can part with as gifts, so that you don’t destroy your business and relationship.
  16. Create legitimate multiple sources of income.
  17. Save at least 10 percent of your income.
  18. Invest a portion of your income. And be patient to see it grow. If what you have in your hands is not good to be called a harvest then it’s a seed, sow it.
  19. Keep a good financial record of all income and expenses, so you won’t ask later “where did my money go”
  20. Be involved in community service. Control traffic, free lessons for students etc.
  21. Keep getting better on your daily goals and dream, develop yourself on them and make sure you get to the top 10 % of your industry.
  22. Make sure you engage in exercise. It keeps your brain alert and your body fit to enjoy your success.
  23. Pray often, and know that for every success, God made it possible.
    Wishing you the very best. I tell you, this will keep you going in life if you practice what you just read.
  24. Minimise the time you spend on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc.) they are great time wasters and could turn into demonic strongholds. If you observe, you can easily spend hours on social media but can hardly spend the same amount of time praying or studying life changing/educational materials.
  25. As we approach 2017, consider *opting out* of all Social Network Groups and *unfriending* all contacts that tolerate posts that promote *Fear, Junk, immaturity, Horror & whatever else does not promote Faith & Godliness*.

Focus *must* be Heaven at this critical time.

It is my prayer that nothing will distract any of my beloved Friends & Family from focusing on Heaven.

Shalom.

Favour for the Week (December 5 – 11)

Genesis 2:19

At creation, God allowed Man to make a very important contribution by having Adam name all Living Creatures. God brought all the living creatures to Adam to See WHAT Adam would call or name them. …and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Beloved, I must remind you that what Satan does primarily, is to emulate what God does. Accordingly, Satan has no power to arbitrarily force anything upon you. He needs your co-operation. For example, Satan brings ‘pictures’ or ‘suggestions’, for example, discomfort or weakness. He then works upon your imagination to agree that you are not well. Once you give your feeling of this ‘discomfort’ or ‘weakness’ a name by saying that you have a cold or Fever or a Headache or whatever, satan quickly agrees with you that indeed you are sick.

Satan always needs a man to give a name to his many schemes before it can be established. That’s why a man drives to a hospital by himself and have the kind-hearted medical team exam him. The good-intending professionals name a number of issues wrong with him. Suddenly, he becomes so sick, they have to hospitalize him urgently. What happened? Once the symptoms have been named and he agrees, Satan puts a stamp of affliction upon him. Then his chemistry actually does yield to infirmity.

Well, this week, Satan may suggest to you how desperate or precarious or even impossible your situation is, seeing you have been ‘believing’ since January. Lucifer will try and provoke you to speak defeat, fear, unbelief, lack, etc. NEVER LISTEN TO HIM! Never give any of the adversary’s suggestions any name. Just hang in there and continue to Thank the Lord for all his faithfulness since the beginning of this year. Surely, our gracious Heavenly Father will deliver the CROWNING package of 2016 (Psalm 65:11).

It’s still our Month of JOYFULLY Keeping On – Isaiah 12:3 KJV.

Word For December 2016

December is our Month of JOYFULLY Keeping On – Isaiah 12:3.

Recently, I was in a traffic jam. In many cities where there are no strict laws on street begging, beggars use such traffic jams or traffic intersections to solicit for arms. Typically, this particular day, a beggar was doing the rounds. He must have started from about 6 or 7 cars ahead of mine. To my knowledge, not one occupant of any of those cars gave him anything. I had a bill already sorted out for him. To my amazement, he got to the car immediately before mine and suddenly turned away. Experience had robbed him. Since he hadn’t gotten anything from over 5 or 6 cars, he must have imagined “what’s the use keeping on?”. Well, I couldn’t help him. Attempts to catch his attention were in vain.
Then I suddenly realized that many of us are like that. Just when our breakthrough is about to happen, we violently disconnect our faith and give up.

Well, Am sure you started 2016 with much hope, faith, and expectation. For my globally ‘FAMILY’ it was declared in December last year: “2016 is our Year of FAVOR 4 DISTINGUISHMENT- Est2:17. In every situation, Godz FAVOR shall distinguish U from d Crowd 4 Glory, Honor, Reward & Blessing, IJN.” The anchor Scripture has been: Esther 2:17 “And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.”

I have to acknowledge that for many of you, it has not always turned out in this way.
There is, therefore, the temptation (like the beggar at the traffic lights) to imagine that you have trusted God since January to November without any tangible result. Therefore, what’s the use? You might as well forget about this year and hope that 2017 will be better.

Well, please don’t give up!

Don’t lose your faith!
Don’t lose your hope!
Don’t lose your expectation or joy!
Patiently retain your faith and Confidence that The Lord will yet deliver. “Cast not away, therefore, your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Hebrews 10:35-36 KJV

So how can you sustain your Faith and Confidence in such apparently negative circumstances? You are to use d Weapon of JOY to draw out your Testimonies. For the rest of this year, daily Thank God JOYFULLY that you have even made it this far. JOYFULLY thank God for your Life, Health, Healing, Home, Family, Job, Biz, Ministry, Career, Certificates, etc. Before you know what is happening, the “wells” of Life will release your “salvation” or Testimony and “Godz FAVOR shall distinguish U from d Crowd for Glory, Honor, Reward & Blessing, in Jesus Name.”

Trust God! He is NEVER Late. Even after Lazarus has been buried four Days, once He arrives, the party just begins. What’s more, He CROWNS the Year with Goodness. “Thou crownest the year with thy goodness, and thy paths drop fatness.” Psalm 65:11 KJV. God reserves the ‘Crown’ Testimony for the very end. There is the CROWN of 2016 uploading… Your JOYFUL Thanksgiving will download it.

Favour for the Week (November 28 – December 3)

Isaiah 41:15

Whether you face challenges in your Health, Workplace, Family, Finances, Ministry, Education, Marriage, etc, the real battle is Spiritual. Yes, Science may explain the ‘source’ of your ailment. Human beings may make life unbearable in your Workplace or family. Children may be rebellious or even be delayed from coming. Your marriage may be delayed. Somebody may delay your due payment for service rendered or goods sold. They may conveniently plead the ‘present general recession’ so-called. You may be facing Financial difficulties. People may generally scheme to cheat you of your rights, blessings or property. Whatever attempts to steal your Health, Home, Property or Peace of Mind, it has spiritual origin and the REAL scoundrel is Satan.

Therefore, the battle is NOT physical. The battle is not against men. They are only instruments in the hands of Satan. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephe 6:12 KJV. Don’t waste your energy hating people. In many cases, they are ignorant instruments in Satan’s hands.

Accordingly, our weapons are NOT Carnal or Physical. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” 2 Corinthians 10:4 KJV. Your greatest Weapon is your MOUTH. When you take hold of The WORD of God and The Blood of Jesus in The Name of Jesus and begin to declare boldly what the Word says about your situation, all battles against you begin to crumble. Your Mouth is the Weapon that releases the bullets, bombs, missiles that crush all your enemies or mountains. That is why God says He has made for you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth… Well, you know the instrument in your body that has teeth, don’t you? Your mouth is it.

God further says; “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17 KJV.

Am sure you have noticed that YOU ARE THE ONE who will condemn every accusation or conspiracy or judgment against you.
This week, don’t keep quiet or rehearse what the adversary is doing or saying. Use your MOUTH to condemn every evil against you and yours. Contend for your health, home, family, job, possessions & blessings.
Boldly reject any suggestion in your body that you will be ill.
Boldly reject any news that you will suffer any loss.
Boldly command Satan to take his hands off your health, home, children, job, business, finances, career, Ministry, etc.
Boldly command every enchantment or divination through dreams against you and yours, to fail.
Boldly Command every gathering against you and yours to scatter.
Declare all of these in The NAME of Jesus. I assure you, you will be victorious.

It’s Still Our Month Of “FAVOR 4 CONTENDING VICTORIOUSLY” Use the powerful Weapon of your Mouth to CONTEND this Week.
Shalom!

Favour for the Week (November 21 – 27)

Job 22:29

Last week, I prompted you to MAKE A MOVE or TAKE A STEP because our Heavenly Father has guaranteed our Victory. This Week, please remember that you can ONLY change your Life for the better when you CHANGE your Language. If you take the necessary steps towards Prosperity for instance, but continue to Confess that ‘things are difficult’ or ‘the economy is bad’ or ‘money is generally scarce everywhere’, you will be stabbing yourself in the Leg. Our Scripture does acknowledge that ‘men shall indeed be cast down’. However, you are NOT allowed to confess or acknowledge their defeat. Yes, you will see people in lack or fear or defeat or infirmity or recession. There will be accidents and terrorism. True, others will lose their jobs or their spouses or family or peace. Still, you are NOT Permitted to confess their ‘Casting Down’. If you have the humility to keep confessing positively in the midst of evident negative facts, you shall be saved. “…he shall save the humble person” Job 22:29.

You must not speak their language or fear what they fear. Isaiah 8:11-13

Accordingly, while men are ACTUALLY cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up.
Keep speaking Faith.
Keep speaking Favor.
Keep speaking Health.
Keep speaking Abundance.
Keep speaking Blessing upon you and yours.
Keep SAYING YOU ARE BEING LIFTED in all areas.
Ultimately, whatever happens to others, your story shall be different. Why? Because the Bible promises that YOU WILL HAVE WHATEVER YOU SAY; “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith”. Mark 11:23 KJV.

Consequently, if you SAY sufficiently enough, you will eventually BELIEVE and finally, you will HAVE whatsoever you SAY.
Furthermore, there is another guarantee that AS SOON AS THEY HEAR WHAT YOU SAY, THEY SHALL OBEY YOU & EVEN STRANGERS SHALL SUBMIT TO YOU; “As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.” Psalm 18:44 KJV.

It’s Still Our Month Of “FAVOR 4 CONTENDING VICTORIOUSLY” Use the Weapon of Positive Confession to CONTEND this Week.
KEEP CONFESSING WHATEVER YOU WANT UPON YOU AND YOURS AND CERTAINLY, IT SHALL COME TO PASS.
Shalom!

Favour for the Week (November 14 – 20)

It’s Still Our Month Of “FAVOR 4 CONTENDING VICTORIOUSLY”

Deut 2:24

Well, you must have noticed that the concluding line of our Text in Deut 2:24 puts the responsibility of CONTENDING upon you. You will have to get up & CONTEND for your inheritance, health, home, children, wealth, Job, business, Promotion, etc. It’s YOU that will contend. The good news is that you are already GUARANTEED Victory.
Our Heavenly Father is your coach & manager.
He is the Timekeeper.
He is the Referee.
He is the Judge.
His verdict can’t be appealed.
So how could you lose?
You are already guaranteed Victory but You MUST show up in the ring for the contest.

Writing under the heading ‘PICK UP YOUR SWORD’, Kenneth Copeland gave the following revelation;

“But thou, O man of God….fight the good fight of faith.” – 1 Timothy 6:11-12

When you’re up against the wall, don’t start begging God to break through it for you. That’s not the way He works. He’ll give you the plan. He’ll give you the power. And He’ll guarantee the victory. But your hand, not His own, is the instrument He’s going to use to get the job done. You’re going to have to stretch forth your hand by speaking and acting on the Word, even when circumstances are against you.

God gave me a striking revelation of that over 20 years ago through a vision He gave me in Beaumont, Texas. I was preparing to minister in a service there, spending some time in prayer, when suddenly I saw myself standing in the pulpit of the church. Looking up, I saw a dragon—a horrible, ugly thing—poke his head through the front door of the church.

As he came into the church, his body expanded like a balloon, filling the whole room. He was snorting fire and smoke. When, in the vision, he turned it on me, he almost burned my clothes!

As I fell back onto the floor, I saw Jesus standing nearby with a sword in His hand. Why doesn’t He do something about this? I thought. Can’t He see I’m hurting?

But He didn’t move. He just stood by with a frown on His face. I could tell He was really put out with me. The Bible says God was not pleased with those who were overthrown in the wilderness (1 Corinthians 10:5). And He wasn’t pleased with me either as I lay there on my back in defeat.

Then Jesus held out the sword to me and pointed at the dragon. The look on His face said, Get up!

I reached up to catch hold of the sword, and an instant before I touched it, Jesus turned it loose.

The sword stayed in midair of its own accord. I grabbed it and began to pull myself up. Not only did it hold firm, but it began to lift me!

I stood and touched the dragon’s chin with my sword and it split him from one end to the other. It laid him open right before my eyes. In amazement, I looked down at the sword. Why haven’t I used this before? I thought.

Don’t wait for God to slay the dragon in your life. You have the sword of the Spirit, the all-powerful Word of the living God, at your fingertips. Pick it up and use it today!.

Therefore, YOU must arise today & Contend VICTORIOUSLY for all that our Loving Heavenly Father has already credited to your account.
Losing is not an option! May your Testimony happen speedily, in JESUS Name.

Favour for the Week (November 7 – 13)

It is still our Month of FAVOR for Contending VICTORIOUSLY and our KEY Scripture is Deut2:24. It is important to notice that when God promised Israel the Land that flows with Milk and Honey, the Jews didn’t remain in Egypt and keep praying in the hope that they would all wake up one day in Canaan. They had to obey and depart Egypt. Somehow, along the way, they encountered certain challenges. It would seem to me that the Jews must have been surprised that there could be any opposition to a clearly God-ordered expedition. Apparently, at some point, they began to doubt the wisdom of departing Egypt in the first place. I mean if the Almighty God actually wanted them to inherit Canaan, why didn’t He just miraculously lift them from Egypt above all obstacles and place them in Canaan? In fact, when Israel encountered another river after crossing the Red Sea, they were ready to throw in the towel and just settle there.

Well, Man is God’s most cherished ‘investment’ in all of creation. Therefore, sometimes God will have man exercise that God-like conquering ability. Hence God prompted the apparently indolent or lethargic nation of Israel to action:
“Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.” Deut 2:24 KJV

What God told the biological seed of Abraham then is still valid for you, the spiritual seed of Abraham.
The Father says:

  1. “Rise ye up”. Stop waiting and arise to some action. Do something and you will discover that God has been waiting to magnify, empower and bless your effort.
  2. “pass over the river Arnon”. Yes, there are Rivers (obstacles) but you are adequately equipped divinely programmed to cross (surmount) them.
  3. “I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land” The adversary has been divinely defeated on your behalf and your victory has been accomplished. Your breakthrough has been released.
  4. “begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle” Your possessions are up for the taking but you must gather them in by yourself. Your victory is assured but you must show up for the battle. Remember, even when God rained Manna from Heaven, it didn’t automatically fill the vessels of the people in their tents. They had to go out and gather it.

Beloved of the Most High God, this week, whatever you are led to do, GO FOR IT!
Don’t just talk about it!
Don’t delay!
Don’t procrastinate anymore!
Have you been waiting for God?
Well, I tell you upon His authority, “Rise ye up…begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle”. You are Guaranteed victory in every area. Make that move now!
