The words of wisdom have been spoken into my life.
I feel ready even though I have never taken this flight before.
I ruffle my feathers,
Looking around me, knowing that the seasons are about to turn.
I know I have to fly away, where I do not know.
But the matriarch, has been gathering us all.
Encouraging us to listen to the voice within us to guide us to our appointed place.
Where the sun (as it was said), was brighter and warmer
Than all the summer days put together in my young life,
My wings are strong enough, to fly me higher and higher,
To glide upon the mighty hands of the great winds.
I have to fly higher and higher into greater altitudes to enjoy an effortless flight.
In anticipation, I try my tiny wings, wondering would they carry me.
To these greater heights that I had heard so many times
I could achieve...
Today is the day. I feel afraid, but yet, the self-navigating system within me tells me that I was ready
I drop out of the window that I was birthed.
Knowing I would never return again to nest there.
My wings automatically stretch open as I feel the winds beneath my wings.
Pushing me up and up.
In a way talking to me, encouraging me that I would know which way was home.
Without thinking, without effort the flight plan unfolded.
Deep within me, it seemed all along it was already there.
Courage leaped on me and I knew I had to trust and obey the voice in my conscience to take me to the place that I have never been,
A place that every great and small bird in the sky was busy chirping about
It felt like I was the only tiny bird up in the Heavens.
As an invisible mighty hand scooped me
And directed me north,
North for the winter
To a place where this little sparrow can find a nest within Zion
INSPIRED BY Revelations 3:12
"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
In my mind, you are far
But yet, I feel you everyday
I watch the seasons change
In winter it snows all around
It reminds me of Your perfect love, pure love
A blanket of white wool covers the expanse of my horizon
Imagining all this was created for a purpose
The nights and day drag
The light in the night is darker a bit longer
I smell the air; well autumn is well on its way
Birds chirping, the marriage of colours
Slowly arising from their winters slumber
I know it was all created for a reason
It was Love
The sunrays are so bright I feel your hands gently guiding me
The smell of Heaven is really here
It is summer; the blooms are at their height
Lazily I close my eyes
Trying to take all this in, to imagine
The seasons of Love
With you my King
To imagine a love that was so great
To be here to love you in Return

A mother occupies a unique place in history. If there were no mothers, there would have been no sons and daughters, no society, no community and the entire world would have been very boring and stagnant. However, the society has become a wonderful place because of mothers (Godly mothers), who have raised and are still raising Godly children.
A mother is so unique in creation that she can be considered as God’s perfection and the crown of His works, because after God created the woman, He rested (Genesis 2). The Bible celebrates motherhood and it teaches us that Godly mothers play a crucial role in God’s programme for the world.
The first woman was made a helpmeet; a companion and someone who was made to make completeness possible for the man.
What are the roles of a mother in the home?
The mother must first recognise the important fact that while Jesus is the head of the Church, the man is the head of the home. Whenever this role becomes inverted, the home will be invaded by all kinds of unimaginable problems.
Finally, dear sister in Christ, we are living in perilous times and I therefore counsel you to spend much time seeking God’s face and depend on Him for grace and strength. Are you conscious of any inadequacies? The Lord will turn your weakness into strength. God is doing a new thing in these end times. He is raising a new crop of Godly women and mothers. He is releasing a new anointing for exploits in motherhood. Receive a new anointing today for your life, family and children in Jesus’ Name!
Abundance is not about what you desire; abundance is about what you do Proverbs 21: 25-26
Hear me brethren, there is nothing that God design for you to hurt you, his commandment are not grievous. God is not planning to make life tough for you, He’s here to make life cheap for you. May you receive it in Jesus Name, Amen. Things were not working in Israel, the people vowed to God and He gave them rest round about. Vow to be committed to God with your means. It takes decision to have motion, it is time for financial motion in your life.
If you are a born again Christian the price for your wellbeing has been paid. Why are you not experiencing this redemptive welfare? Because God has left you a responsibility and until you under take this responsibility you do not enjoy the blessings. God is no respecter of persons. Where you are is not a plus compared to where you find yourself. Poverty is a universal citizen. Satan requires no visa to be anywhere. It does not matter where you are living, what matters is how you are living. I am glad to let you know that wealth is provided for in the Gospel.
That you don’t have does not mean it’s not there. How many of you will agree that healing is provided for in Redemption? But why are there so many sick people? Poverty is not God’s plan for you; poverty is part of the curses of the law and has been paid for, so you now have access to the blessings of Abraham. Your security is knowing your God and hearing His voice and fulfilling what He asks you to do.
Genesis 8: 20-22; This is where the law of increase was enacted or established. It takes sowing to harvest. No sowing, no harvest. When you don’t give, don’t expect to receive. Many of us want increase but don’t agree with the process. For example; a farmer that does not put anything in the soil and expects harvest and begins to pray all manners of prayers, night vigils and fasting, his harvest will not come and if care is not taken the fasting and prayer may kill him.
Proverbs 21: 25-26; there are many things you are looking for but you may die in the process if you do not do what it takes to get it. Abundance is not what you desire, abundance is what you do. Proverbs 20: 4; everyone you see that has a reason for not giving has reasons to be poor. Every excuse for not giving is an excuse for being poor. Hear me, David was speaking, he said once I was young, now I am old, I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread. Begging is unrighteous. By whatever style it is unrighteous. You will not beg in Jesus name. Amen.
There is something you can do with your hand, for your hand to be blessed. If you want to remain refreshed let go. It is very important people of God to know that God has not change and there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there famine now? There was famine in the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Why should you complain that things are very hard now? In all their times they were distinguished in spite of famine. Abraham in the midst of famine became very rich in gold, cattle, male and female servants. Amidst famine, Isaac went forward and “waxed” strong until he became very great and the Philistines envied him. There was also famine in the time of Jacob and the bible says Jacob declares God has blessed me in everything. So don’t harass God by saying things are hard, this is not the first time that things were hard. In Jacob’s time, money failed yet hardship was far from his tabernacle. So when there was inflation Jacob was increasing. Brethren, there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1: 9). Whatever was done then needs to be done now. If they prospered in time of famine, you can prosper now. All you need to do is to uphold the integrity in the covenant. It is nothing with God to bless, prosper or make rich but He is looking for able hands unto whom He would entrust the wealth.
If you make yourself available by keying into this covenant, He would not hesitate to play His own part. As long as earth remaineth, seed time and harvest shall not seize. Financial bondage will only be broken when your position changes to fall in line with the word of God. Israelites were languishing in slavery in Egypt for 430 years, until they gave God His place they could not have their places. Exodus 4: 22; And God said Israel is my son, even my first born. And God said let my son go that they may serve me. When they were ready for God, God was ready for their liberty. When your commitment to God is established, God will eternally be committed to your liberty. Your greatness in this kingdom is tied to your quality of service. Your freedom is tied to your quality service. Not just being present but actively committed to the things of God. You might be there for twenty years but might not see what somebody who is there for one year has seen. It is not how long, but how well. If you serve God, He will free you. If you will not serve him, you may as well live in bondage. Service is the master key to liberty. Whosoever would be great among you, let him be the most servants of all.
There are two forces contending for your service. Jesus said, you cannot serve God and mammon. You cannot serve god and money. Mammon means money. A greater percentage of people on the earth today are purely living for money. In the morning, afternoon, at night, money has become the centre of their faculty. The bible says, those who love silver shall not be satisfied with it. The love of money equals idolatry. There is no man who can truly claim to be in love with God that money will matter to. Malachi 3: 7; Return unto me and i will return unto you. That is the foundation of abundance. When you return from your own way of doing things to His (God’s) own ways of doing things you have crossed over. You will cross over in Jesus name. Amen. If you will serve Him you will be free.
There is absolutely nothing you see around you today that God does not have more to offer. Exodus 4: 22; As soon as they returned to God, He also returned to them. Every time you return to God, He also returns to you and gets committed to your liberty. I PROHESY A MYSTERIOUS FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH FOR YOU THIS YEAR IN JESUS NAME. Everyone who is committed to serve God, God is committed to free them. If you will serve God with your means, God will be committed to you with his means. So, your commitment to Him is what determines your destiny with Him. Except a grain of seed fall into the ground and dies it abides alone, if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. Israel was committed and God became committed to them. When God is committed to your welfare brethren, you have crossed over.
For four hundred and thirty years Israel worked without wages but when they left Egypt, silver and gold became their luggage. God gave them favour, they plunged the land of Egypt, and they ruined their economy. They were paid in a single day for four hundred and thirty years labour. Brethren, I have never seen a man who is completely sowed out for God that never shine as a star on this earth. I have not met one who is all out for God and who is not all round successful. Exodus 8: 28; the farther you go, the brighter you become. Abraham took Isaac to mount moriah, he came back inheriting a whole generations of human race. God said by myself have I sworn that in blessings I will bless you, in multiplication I will multiply you and by you shall all nations of the earth be blessed. The bible says wisdom makes the face of a wise man to shine and the boldness of his countenance shall be changed. WHAT IS WISDOM? Whosoever hears this saying of mine and shall do them the same is a wise man. And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn men to righteousness are stars of heaven forever and ever.
It is wisdom time for the church. It is word practise time. So you hold the aces. Practising the word will make you shine as the stars. I am glad to let you know that some of you are about to stumble into some realm of wealth that would alarm your neighbours. You will become so attractive that men would hold on to your dress and say take me to this your God that has done you this well. Every time you see darkness, it is for God to distinguish His people. (Isaiah 60: 1-2). LET ME SAY THIS AGAIN THAT WEALTH IS NOT A PROMISE, IT IS A COVENANT. IT IS NOT CLAIMABLE BY PRAYER, IT IS NOT CLAIMABLE BY FASTING, YOU WALK INTO IT BY OBEDIENCE.
Brethren, it is worthy to note that commitment to giving is what provokes commitment to blessings. True riches are getting it when it is required. Not being stranded at any time. I DECREE OVER YOU THAT BEFORE YOUR NEEDS ARISE THE SUPPLY WOULD BE WAITING IN JESUS NAME. Amen.
Mind you, God is not looking for what you have; He gave it to you in the first instance. God will never need your help; He is your only dependable helper. You need God and you will always need Him. And to always receive from Him you just walk in obedience. 1 Chronicles 29: 2-3; using every resource at my command, I have gathered as much as I could for building it – enough gold, silver, bronze, iron, wood, and great quantities of onyx, other precious stones, costly jewels, and marble. This is your time to be lifted, don’t miss it.
