Hi There! Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a little bit about me:
My name is Ayoola Bandele. I am in my thirties and really looking forward to what God has in store for years to come. I am first and foremost a child of God by faith through Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26). I started this blog a few years ago in obedience to God who laid a strong impression on my heart to share this not such a secret weapon of scriptural declarations with the world.
My first encounter with Bible affirmations and declarations was with my widowed mum whilst growing up. She is a retired head teacher who loves the Lord and has served him for as long as I know her. She is a woman who dwells in the word and prays them into existence. Not a day went by that we did not study the word at length. We studied in the morning, noon and at night time. She drilled the word of God into our hearts though I did not fully understand it until I became an adult.
My Testimony and How it all started
I had an encounter with God studying my Bible one day. It was during a really difficult period in my life and I came across the scripture that says; “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life so that you and your descendants might live!” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
I realised that up until that moment, I just existed in life without living the life God intended for me. That day, I chose life instead of death and that was the beginning of this spiritual lifestyle and my Christian journey into living life as God intended. I have prayed the scriptures into my life consistently since that day, targeting different areas of life and coming out victoriously. I have meditated and spoken the word over my finances and today I am debt free to the glory of God. The spoken word of God has strengthened my bones, enabled and empowered me to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. I found my calling and purpose through the word. My gifts, skills and abilities are continuously been developed through the declaration of the word of God. I have been healed of sicknesses through the word. This word is powerful and it can renew your mind, transform your life and set you free for life.
Not knowing where to start on the strong impression laid on my heart, I started Daily Bible Declarations on Facebook and at the time of writing this page, followers have continued to grow into thousands. Facebook followers are about 3.5k, Instagram is almost 1.5k, Twitter .5k and there are daily subscribers through the site. This site is still evolving and I crave for your prayers and patience as the vision continues to get clearer and the mission continues to take shape. The Bible says that “Christ came that they might have life and have it in abundance” (John 10:10). I am convinced that God wants to see His children LIVE abundantly and not just EXIST in life. I long to see the children of God set free from everything that holds us bound and lives life in abundance. I hope that your mind is renewed, your life is transformed and you begin to live a new life in Christ Jesus even as you immerse yourself in the word of God through these declarations.
My education and work experience
I hold a National Diploma Certificate in Mass Communication from The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Nigeria and a Bachelor of Science (BSc Hons) Certificate in Statistics from the University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. I am currently going through a Christian leadership and Management Course at The Leadership College London run by The Holy Trinity Brompton, London. I currently work as the Project Administrator for the RCCG School of Prayer, an arm of the RCCG Central Office, the United Kingdom. I am currently a Volunteer Speaker for The Bible Society where I visit churches to speak to them on the work of the Bible Society and how best to engage with the Bible.
I love God, I Love life and I love people (Mark 12:30-31). I am in pursuit of God through the study of his words, fellowship with his people, and supporting ministries and charitable causes that promote the good news of Jesus Christ. I currently support a few charitable organisations with monetary donations, in prayer and volunteering when the need arises. I recently climbed up to the only free-standing mountain in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2017 and I ran a 10k marathon in July 2017, all in support of Compassion UK – A charitable organisation at the forefront of fighting against poverty amongst children worldwide. I also support Open Doors UK – a charitable organisation who serve persecuted Christians around the world by providing vital support, delivering resources, and providing training. Please do donate via the site if you are led to do so. Your donation will go a long way in supporting the site and the ministries I regularly support.
I worship at Jesus House London, a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God network, under the leadership of Pastor Agu Irukwu. I am not an ordained minister and I do not claim to be a theologian. Most of the blog posts you read on this site is written by me, not copied from any other site or from any preacher or teacher unless otherwise stated. Most blog posts are written by me mostly through inspiration from when studying the Bible, through personal victories or experiences or written when there is a message I feel the Lord lays on my heart for his children either during my personal prayer time. I pray the Lord ministers to you personally as you read through the messages.
