You and 2018 – Plan! – FelaOmisakin

Now that you have greeted 2018 welcome, what’s next? One of the biggest mistakes you can make in this New Year is to have no plan of what you want to do or what you are expected to achieve in 2018. Planning helps us to make the right decisions, especially when our plans are made with our life purpose in mind. Believe me, in 2018 you are going to be faced with lots of decisions and you can really spare yourself the confusion of making choices when you already know what you are set to achieve and the standards you stand for.

Jesus was pointing out to some people how a builder will first sit down to count the cost of building before embarking on a building project and how a king will first sit down to strategize before going to war. I am pointing out to you at this moment how you should sit first and look after your life.

It is actually not too late to make your plans for 2018, the best time is now. I am not saying you are going to put down everything you will do in 2018, you cannot determine some factors. I need you to set major and cogent goals and how you want to achieve them. For example, one of my plans in 2018 is to teach and equip a certain number of girls to fulfil purpose in 2018, and I have a strategy to achieve this plan; I also have a plan to establish a strong administrative structure for Chosen Girl NG and many other plans. With my plans, I won’t live amiss in 2018.

So, sit down first and plan for 2018. Put away the rice and chicken and make this decision to make your life better. This is the best time to consult God; ask Him what He will have you do in this New Year – you can make your plans around it. Look at your heart desires – you can make your plans around them. Look at your environment – you can make your plans out of there. Examine what you have been doing from time past – those things will guide you to make your plans. Look into your future – You can make your plans from it. Just get a book and a pen and meditate; make the plans now.

Whatever plans you come up with, don’t be ashamed of them – it is your guideline into glory. Work with your plans at all time. Your plan might be to get a car in 2018, go after it. Your plan might be to get married in 2018, work towards it. Whatever your plans are, make sure you make use of them.

I will be rounding up by encouraging you to stop whatever you are doing now, go somewhere, sit down and make plans for 2018. Hold on to this- the plans you make on January 1, 2018 will be the bedrock of your testimonies on December 31, 2018.

You are blessed.

With so great love.

Study your Bible – FelaOmisakin

To my Christian friends and everyone who calls on the name of Jesus:

I am glad you have taken time to read what I have put up here. I have come to discover that there are some people around trying to get Christians around to become people of other religions. In 2017, I witnessed painfully how some friends moved from Christianity into Islam, traditional worship and others- those moments were sad times for me (people who were around me when the horrible transitions happened will testify).

But then I have noticed that all who get converted and walk away from the Christian faith are people who do not have deep understanding of the Bible. And that is why I want to encourage you to study the word and be established in it.

The thing is you might not understand some things you read in the Bible and you might have questions. Please, try and direct your questions to fellow believers. Don’t try to look for an unbelievers concept of the Bible- an unbeliever will always make spiritual things look foolish. If you want to grow as a Christian, never neglect fellowship with fellow believers.

Let me make a little illustration. If you are in law department and there is a particular law course you don’t understand, you don’t go to meet your friend in engineering department to explain the course to you. Instead you meet a fellow law department student who knows better than you to explain to you, if you go and meet your friend in the engineering department to explain to you, you will fail eventually. Same applies to you as a believer, the Bible is best explained to you by fellow believers.

There are unbelievers trying to teach that the Bible is fake and imperfect, it will be dangerous to fall into their hands.

I want you to take the Holy Spirit as your greatest companion, study the word YOURSELF with earnest prayers. Know what the Bible say and believe in it firmly. Refuse to be deceived.

At this point, I want you to take few minutes and pray for every Christian who is currently in the wrong hands, that God who is faithful will bring them to the true understanding of His truth. Amen.

Endeavour to share with family and friends. Thank you very much. God bless you.

With great love.
FelaOmisakin.

The Proverbs 31 Woman – What she is not

Before we begin to consider and study who the Proverbs 31 woman, let us be careful to say what Proverbs 31 does not tell us. Proverbs 31 has mentioned so many things and has left some things untouched- because does things are not needed in the definition of a Proverbs 31 woman. Interestingly, there is no other place where these things are mentioned because they are not criteria for measuring a good woman. I am mentioning this thing because most girls think that is what makes them good.

Sex! Proverbs 31 does not talk about sex. Sex is not a factor that determines if one is a good girl. Of course the Proverbs 31 woman will have sex because she is a wife and a mother, but that doesn’t count in what makes her up. Will live in a world where sex has been over emphasised with great pressure on females, I want you to know that sex is not a way of showing good act, especially when you are not married. So, if you are always trying to prove to someone that you are good by giving them sex (or you are thinking of doing it), please stop it.

Before I leave the sex thing, let me also say that the Proverbs 31 woman is not defined by big breasts or buttocks. That is a shallow way of thinking. I have seen so many ladies trying to adjust the size of their breast and buttocks because they want to look good and presentable (you have certainly seen one too). Go and read Proverbs 31 and you will find out that body physique is not a factor in being good and if you want to change your body physique because you lack confidence, go and read the introduction.

God bless you.

Proverbs 31 Woman- Guys Need To Know Her

I have noticed that when the Proverbs 31 woman is mentioned, guys tend to ignore the topic with the mind of ‘it is a girl thing’. This is not the way it should be. The Proverbs 31 was actually a prophetic revelation received by a guy- King Lemuel from his mother. It means the Proverbs 31 woman topic was and is actually intended for the guys.

There are many dangers of bypassing the knowing of this woman, ignoring her has no advantage. To start with, not being interested in the Proverbs 31 woman is ignoring the word of God and will of God. This topic is found in the Scriptures for crying out loud. If you know all of the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation and you don’t know about Proverbs 31(which I don’t think is possible), then your knowledge of God’s word is not complete. So carefully pick up your Bible now and open to Proverbs 31 and read.

When you don’t know this woman, you won’t recognize the difference between a good lady and a bad one. I can say it bodly that not all good girls meet up to the standard of the Proverbs 31 woman. So, that lady you are dying for can actually know how to cook and not know how to pray. She can actually be very good sincerely, but there might be a little fox that is spoiling the vine.

With the understanding of the Proverbs 31 woman. You can understand which lady to move with and the one to ignore. I can tell you bodly again that if you really understand the Proverbs 31 woman, there are certain ladies in your life that you will run away from (don’t just runaway, pray for them. And if the lady is your fiance, please see your pastor).

So many guys keep asking, ‘how do I recognize a wife material? Is it when she is 20 yards, or 36 yards?’. Bros come, the material you need is what is in Proverbs 31. I am tired of guys complaining that some girls in their life is bad or something.

The understanding of this woman will ensure you a smooth way to relate with ladies- your sister, mum, fiance, friends, neighbours etc. You will know how to respect them and where to encourage and build them up. What would have become of Isaac if only he did not get that woman? He might have traded away a great covenant like Samson who could not tell who a Proverbs 31 woman is. The story of Amnon could have been better if he had respected that Proverbs 31 woman. Mordecai trained Esther to be that Proverbs 31 woman and it really paid him.

Maybe Samson and Amnon had no Proverbs 31 during their days. You have it now. Guy, please get to know her.

God bless you.

Proverbs 31 Woman- Introduction

We need to look at what a woman is and who a woman is. What a woman is, is totally different from who a woman is.

Now, what is a woman? A woman is a helper. I would want us to understand that this role of a woman can actually be played by any other thing. That is why in Genesis 2:19-20 God brought all the animals before Adam to give name to them, but he did not find a helper. God gave Adam the liberty to choose a partner for himself and so Adam gave the animals their identity. It was not like Adam gave lion the name lion, or goat the name goat. What Adam did was give them their identity (role), so Adam gave lion the king identity, gave tortoise the cunny Identity etc., but Adam did not find any of the animals to give the helper identity.

God had to cause Adam to sleep and out of Adam he produced another being. Adam saw that being, recognized the being as a helper and called her woman- gave her the identity of woman. If Adam had not liked what he saw, he could have given that being another identity. As far as God is concerned, a woman is the best helper that man can ever get. The what is a woman explains her identity.

Who is a woman? After Adam had recognized her as his helper, he went ahead to give a confession (Genesis 2:23). Adam called her woman because she was taken from man. And that is who she was- an extension of man. Therefore she was everything God had ever commanded and said about Adam. If you take a bowl of water out of the well, you will still have the well water in the bowl; if the well water is bitter, the water in the bowl will be bitter.

Every thing connected to the man as written in Genesis 1:26-30 was also connected to the woman. The woman therefore is made in God’s image and likeness, she has dominion too.

The what and the who of the woman produced result later in Genesis 3. I am of the opinion that the woman obeyed the serpent because of the fact that she knows and thinks she has dominion- even over the tree at the middle of the garden. And at that time, she thought she was doing the man a favor- helping him. She ate the fruit and a great event happened. At the end of the event, the man called the woman Eve which means life.

Every woman is a portal for life both physically and spiritually. Physically, it is through the woman that new human beings are produced. Spiritually, life flows through her and that is why Christ married the Church, the Church being the bride so that His life will flow through the Church to the world.

A woman is an helper created in the Image and likeness of God to have dominion and be a producer of life. If you are a lady and you have not recognized yourself as a helper- always keeping to yourself and being lazy or you don’t know you are created in God’s image and likeness- trying to change your looks and allowing circumstances/people take advantage of you or you and not giving life to your environment- always negative and unproductive, then you are not a woman. Rethink and align your life.

God bless you.

Christian Living Series- Christian Caucus

Have you noticed that Christians are always in different groups? You may belong to one and that is wrong for your Christian life.

Now, by group we don’t mean ministries and units in Churches. We are referring to the segregations we have made amongst ourselves by reason of doctrines, academic qualifications, background, wealth and others. And so we see Christians belonging to some certain set of people who are rich but do not relate with the poor.

Jesus does not preach that we should divide ourselves for the criticism of ourselves. In fact, Jesus prayed that we may be one. There are so many ungodly factions that we have among ourselves and if you belong to any, God is calling you to come out of them and love all.

The most common type of segregation among Christians are the people who think they are too holy and so they don’t relate with others who seem unholy. That is why once they see a Christian fall, they are quick to castigate and rebuke; even when they should actually show love. Are you in such group, where you think you are too holy for others? Of course, you are holy, but holiness is not denying others because of their shortcomings. The Sister in your fellowship got pregnant and so she does not belong to the group of Christians you deal with, she is now unholy. Or the Christian who lives in the next door is crippled and so you start ignoring him.

Even Jesus was with all types of people all His life. There was no preference as to whom He related. God is calling you brethren to stop the discrimination you have brought into Christianity. There is really nothing like rich Christian, poor Christian, holy Christian, unholy Christian, sick Christian etc. We are all Christians.

Let’s God’s love grow in you that you may see everyone as your brothers and sisters.

ACTION POINTS

1. Try and figure out how you have rejected to relate with other Christians.

2. For what reason did you reject them.

3. Make a decision to come out of the mindset of belonging to a group of Christians.

PRAYER

1. Lord, let your love grow in me.

2. Help me to be disciplined in my relations with other people (Christian and non Christians).
