I coach and I mentor Christians on overcoming everyday life challenges. If struggling with everyday life challenges in your Christian walk and in need of somebody to walk with you through those challenges, please feel free to book a session with me. I believe with prayers, declarations, practical life tips and some coaching sessions, we can overcome everyday life challenges together. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Let me be your Christian life coach and a mentor on this journey. My beliefs are: I believe the Bible has the power to change lives for good when we engage with it in the right way. I believe the authors of the Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write all the 66 books of the Bible. I believe in the Godhead. I believe in God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. I believe biblical declarations aligns human beings with God's original plan for humanity and it helps us grow in our faith in God. I hope that your expectations will not be cut short as you read through, pray through and declare your way into the life God intended for you. May the end result for you be that your Christian mind is renewed, your life is transformed and a new world is created for you in Christ Jesus.

Fortify Your Marriage Declaration & Prayers

8 Biblical Declarations to Speak Over Your Marriage

Declaration of Faith: I declare proverbs 31 over myself that I will do my husband good at all times, and I will not engage myself in idle talks that will cause him any harm. I will allow the Spirit of God to lead me daily, and I will not mislead my husband into disobedience against God. We will both walk in love in obedience to our God, and we will enjoy our union together.

It is a well-known fact that the first few years of a marriage can be quite tricky to navigate. No matter how exciting the weddings are and how enjoyable the celebrations can become, this is the period that can either lead to a marital bliss if caution is adhered to, a separation or a divorce if care is not taken. It is the period when we find out the truth about our relationship. It is the moments when we realise whether we genuinely like, love, can or cannot stand our spouse. It is a very crucial moment when expectations are high physically and attacks are heightened spiritually.

10 Scriptural Declarations to Speak Over Yourself

Scriptural Declaration of Faith to Speak over Yourself Regularly

Declaration of Faith: I carry the peace of God in my heart and it transcends all understanding. It guards my heart and it keeps my mind at peace in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). Therefore I am at peace at home and I am at peace with my neighbours. I am at peace whenever I go out and I am at peace when I come in. I am surrounded by peace in this world.

We can speak many things over ourselves but we do not have the power to bring those things into existence. God has such power and they are in His word. They are his legacy on earth. His integrity to the world, and they never return to Him empty. They always accomplish whatever God sends them to do (Isaiah 55:11). In the actual fact, God honours his word above his name (Psalm 138:2) and they will only bring our words into existence when we align ourselves with the power in the word given to us. Then we can make declarations that works and become whatever we speak over ourselves.

God is Good by Jonathan McReynolds

I am believing that God will turn around this period for your good. I have also been listening to Jonathan McReynolds prayer song and has been a real blessing to friends, I thought I’d share it with you too. It is so powerful and so right for this season and I’m praying it for you. Please, join me and let’s pray together.

Uplifting Declarations for the Persecuted Christians

10 Biblical Declarations to Encourage and Strengthen the Persecuted Christians

Declaration of faith: I am fighting the good fight of faith with Christ and I will win this battle with him on my side (1 Timothy 6:12).

Did you know that there are over 300 million persecuted Christians in the world today? Not many people know about this but there are Christians who are facing high or extreme levels of persecution for their faith. According to Open Doors UK, the top 5 World Watch list of countries for the persecuted Christians include Afghanistan, North Korea, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Burkina Faso and, please allow me to add to the list, my native country, Nigeria.

Let’s Say The Lord’s Prayer

Friends!
God recently enlisted me in his army of millions of Christians in the UK. It was a surreal moment I least expected to happen during the lock down period. But as we all said the Lord’s Prayer together on Good Friday 2020 at 3pm, there was a sense of togetherness in the spirit with a collective declaration of faith for an end to covid19.

We all stopped what we were doing, stepped outside our homes, prayed for the nation and declared it is finished because Jesus has risen. We believe that God heard us from heaven, he is turning things around for our good and soon there will be testimonies to share nationwide.

OMG Game: Funny Quiz or Bible Quiz?

Friends!
I stumbled across one of those OMG games we play on Facebook or on other social media platforms and I had a quick go at it. It’s one of those fun personality quizzes that tells us who you are based on your profile, who hates or likes you from among your friends, which country are you meant to live based on your name, which career path are you meant to follow based on your facial analysis and the list goes on. Those games are fun, harmless and their accuracy sometimes rouse your curiosity. However they couldn’t be far from the truth on who God says we are in Christ. Some of those answers may appear accurate but it’s simply because they had been analysed from our personal profile activities. Daily Bible Declarations Continue reading “OMG Game: Funny Quiz or Bible Quiz?”

7 Powerful Psalms for Troubled Times

Friends!

We all have a favourite Psalm we pray with regularly. We do it because we know that when we pray the Psalms God answers. They’re his words and he’s bound by them. They’re his bonds and he does not go back on his words. Scripture says that “He watches over his words to fulfill it” (Jeremiah 1:12). When we bring his words back to him in prayer, he rises up to fulfill his promises. Continue reading “7 Powerful Psalms for Troubled Times”

21 Fight this Fear Biblical Declarations

Declaration of faith: God has not given me the spirit of fear but of power, of love and of a sound mind.

There is simply no amount of protection we can do for ourselves that can prevent us from the evils of this world. There will always be one thing or the other that we need protection from for as long as we exist on earth. God is the protector we all need and his words are our consolation. He has all the power to fully protect us from evil (2 Thessalonians 3:3), to save us from destroying ourselves (Acts 2:21) and to deliver us from the wickedness in this world (Psalm 91:1-16).

As for me and my household, we are facing this fear with God’s words and we are declaring faith-filled promises of God over our lives believing that we will win this battle against our minds.

Let’s Fight this Fear with God’s Word

Friends, How are you fighting off the fear in this pandemic period?

I went for a walk the other day and as soon as somebody saw me coming on the same side of the road as them, they crossed to the other side of the road.

This behavior got me thinking about the government’s rules and its impact on all of us; stay at home, wash your hands, don’t touch your face, wear a mask, stay at least six meters apart, self isolate for seven or fourteen days depending on how you’re faring and how exposed you’ve been to someone affected by the virus, and please don’t get me started on social distancing.

What Are You Grateful For In These Unsettling Times?

Friends,
What’s the one thing you’re grateful for in this past few weeks?

We sometimes find ourselves in unsettling situations that causes us to cry, to grieve and to mourn for our misfortunes or disappointments. But at other times when we find ourselves in the middle of an ugly situation, instead of allowing our emotions get the best of us, let us find something good in that we are grateful to God for in this period. Let us find the silver lining in this cloud that will lift up our spirits and helps us be grateful to God. Continue reading “What Are You Grateful For In These Unsettling Times?”
