Haggai 1:1-11

Service means ‘To provide/give something that the other party needs’. Service is very important in the Vineyard if the body of Christ (You & I) will grow and excel exceedingly at whatever we do.

Service means ‘To be useful and available at anytime and with anything you have with no reluctance’. God made you to be who you are today; He gave you that gift, time, money, name it; and until you give it back to Him through your Service to Him, you can never experience peace with all with all He had given to you.

The next things God demands from you after you had given your life to Him are all that you’ve got, and until you give them to Him you cannot enjoy life to its fullest Exodus 23:25 “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

Bible says in Matthew 22:14 that “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

We, believers have all been called, but a few of us are privileged to be Chosen to Serve the Called.

Note that God will keep calling but have you wondered how all the Called will be served? THE CALLED WILL BE SERVED BY YOU AND I.

I am glad to let you know that it is a great privilege to serve. Service gets you anywhere, it opens you up to lots of Opportunities and Lessons in life. While serving, things happen; I mean all the things around you work for you without your consent Matthew 6:33. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 
Until you Seek your God / Creator through your Service, nothing can be Added to you/Created for you.

You are not called to be served, but called to Encourage and Persuade others to Serve 2nd Timothy 2:2.

That gift of God upon your life was not invested in there just for you. As you know that no product will ever be created for itself (to serve itself), but others. God blessed you so that you can bless others Genesis 12:2.

1st Timothy 4:14 says, “Neglect not the Gift that is in thee, which was given thee….”

You have been endowed with the Gift of God and you must not neglect it in order not to be called a wicked man and not lose it (your life, your time, your gift, talent, skill and money). Remember in the Parable of the Talent, the wicked man was cast into outer darkness Matthew 25v26-30. 

“26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

But that will not be your portion in Jesus’ name. Using your gifts and ability multiplies your gifts and you personally.

Each time you neglect the assignment that is needed to be done in the vineyard, God gets angry and He gets you cursed because He knows that, you will not do that at your place of work, but this will not be your lot in Jesus’ name. Amen!

In Haggai 1:1-11, our Anchor Scripture; the Bible tells us that God was angry and He was pouring out His heart to His people (they are not unbelievers). You can be a better Person, Banker, Trader, Professional or Career Personnel; if only you can give yourself (everything about you) completely to Him.

Until you serve in the Kingdom/Vineyard, all that you Starve in life will not come to you/locate you.

Note today that you (your gift, talent, skill, expertise, knowledge, intellect, money, time and belongings) are needed in the body of Christ and until you give it, you cannot really have it Luke 16:11 (“Who will commit true riches onto your hands?”).

Your seemingly endless/interminable service makes you become an Established Personality both on earth and in heaven.


Acts 6:3; Psalm 91:4-6

Kingdom Commitment is the assignment you take on as your own Personal Responsibility in the Vineyard (House of God). In our previous lesson, we learnt that, ‘It is how much you are committed to your assignment that will determine how much that will be committed into your hand/care’; which literally means that, your commitment level at whatever thing you do will determine your SUCCESS level. Bringing this principle into the body of Christ; Commitment means ‘you taking an assignment in the Vineyard as an obligation/your responsibility’.

Kingdom Commitment helps you walk through the hurdles of life with ease. Why? Because as you are attending to the needs in the house of God (not only financially, but also, Physically – {your manpower is highly needed}; that is, your presence, skill and time), God is also attending to the need pertaining to your life Matthew 6:33.

Isaiah 65:14
Kingdom Commitment is likened to you, not seeing and getting worried about what you are going/passing through, but you are so much concerned and consumed about what must not be wrong in the house of God and the REWARD is: Your unsaid prayers will always automatically attract answers.

Hear This - God will never be committed to anything you do at its OPTIMAL until you are committed to His things. Matthew 6:33 – He will never seek you to bless you with all that you need until you first SEEK Him through doing His things.

A Call To Service
  • Bring the whole of Yourself, your Heart and all your Ideas into the things of God and God will bring/carry the whole of Himself, Power, Infinite Wisdom and His Presence into everything you do.
  • Your destiny cannot be totally fulfilled until you have fulfilled your part in God’s kingdom.
  • Until you show your Creator your love through your Worship and Commitment to His thing, He will never show you the blessing-side of Himself. Proverbs 23:26 says, “My son, give me thine heart” which means, ‘my son, LOVE me’. You cannot LOVE without GIVING as you cannot Give Him your Heart without giving Him your HAND, first. So, giving Him your hand will be a proof of your love TO Him.

Until you see the need for your Presence, Time and Skill in the House of God, God will never see any reason to answer to your need and be with you in times of trouble. Matthew 6:33.

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt. 6)

DILIGENCEProverbs 22:29; Hebrews 11:6

Prosperity is a product of what you do, the assignment you take on, the duty you undertake/embark on and how consistent you are in it. The need for stretching the word DILIGENCE when dealing on the issue of PROSPERITY is a MUST. The subject cannot be covered or exhausted without emphasizing more on Diligence (always on it).

Prosperity is void without Diligence at all levels (profession, spiritual, etc.) Proverbs 10:4; 12:24; 13:4; 21:5; Hebrews 11:6.
Diligence is the foundation for success at any endeavour/enterprise.

Note: Your prosperity is hinged/anchored to what you do, how you do it, why you do it when you do it, how discipline you are at doing it, what your commitment level is, how much time and resources you dedicate to it, how truthful you are in it even in the face of the storm (integrity) and your service.

Diligence means ‘to be persistent at what you do’. What do you do? A Big question and How are you doing it?

Being diligent requires the need for Dedication, Discipline, Commitment, Integrity and Service.

DILIGENCE means to be:
a. DEDICATED1st Timothy 4:15. To be dedicated means ‘to give yourself wholly/totally to whatever you do’.

b. DISCIPLINE Romans 12:2. Discipline makes a man. It is through discipline you can achieve your vision. Remove Discipline from Destiny and what you get is Destitute. Vision disciplines its carrier; it restricts you from doing some negative things that will tamper with your future. Discipline is likened to Self-Control; it enables you set Regulations at all levels, for your life.

c. COMMITMENT2nd Timothy 2:2, 1st Thessalonians 4:11. Your commitment is likened to your Responsibility. It is how much you are committed to a thing/your assignment that will determine how much that will be committed into your hands. That project in your hand that is still small now and your commitment level is very low to it and you are trying to cover up with so many excuses that are not genuine; hear this; God cannot make it big until you commit yourself to it Luke 19:17. Bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:10 that, “Whatsoever thy hand FINDETH to do, do it with thy might…”

d. Faithfulness/ Being Truthful (Integrity) -- Matthew 5:37. Where is your Integrity? Why should you compromise it? Must you please people to succeed and this is now making you to lie and not straight forward? You are a son/daughter of God – God is a Person of Integrity, you are a product of God – you should also be a person of integrity. You will only go/achieve as much as your integrity in whatsoever you do. The major value/characteristic your boss, customers, clients, colleagues and your suppliers need from you is Integrity; which means, you saying ‘Yes’, and it is found to be ‘Yes’. Work on this value and your life and everything attached to it will transform (take a new look).

e. SERVICE - Genesis 39:11; Revelation 7:15. Where is your Service? If you don’t want to serve, then you cannot excel/succeed. Don’t you know that Servant doesn’t starve what he/she serves? And all servants end up becoming Consultants? How? Because they have served so many people; gone to so many places answering errands; and all these, over time makes them know where almost everything is? And when they start their own thing they don’t get stranded? Service is the only Virtue and Attribute that gets you to the Summit in whatever area you desire GREATNESS.

  • It is the diligent hand the Almighty God will bless.
  • It is WHAT you have in your hands that God will MULTIPLY.
  • Your Diligence will determine Who calls you for job, Where you stand, the Quality of the job you receive and How Much you Prosper.
  • Take DILIGENCE away from the process of Prosperity and what you will be left with is ABJECT POVERTY – Poverty of the Mind, Poverty of Idea; Poverty of the hand, Poverty of the pocket and Spiritual Poverty.

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt. 5)

The Presence of GodPsalm 16:11

The presence of God envelopes the personality of God, it carries the entire (the Creative, Productive and the Destructive) power of God. The Creative, to Create for you, whatever you wish to bring into existence; the Productive power to Generate for you, the idea and initiative for maximum and unimaginable results; and the Destructive power to destroy/put to where he belongs, any devil that wants to show his ugly face in whatever progress you are making.

OUR CASE STUDY – Joseph -- Genesis 39:1-End.

Joseph was a teenager slave boy who really enjoyed the presence of God during his lifetime here on earth despite all the roughness of the road to his destiny. The presence of God he carried, caused him to prosper in all that he laid his hands on to do and everywhere he finds himself. My Bible tells me in verse 3; 21; & 23 that the Lord was with him. The Lord being with him made him to achieve outstanding result and attain the peak position his career.

  • Purity – 2 Timothy 2:19-21.
  • Righteousness – Proverbs 14:34.
  • Holiness – Hebrews 12:14.
  • The Word of God – Joshua 1:8; Luke 5:17

(Making the PRESENCE of God you carry to Work for you)

  • Dedication -- 1st Timothy 4:15.
  • Discipline – Romans 12:2.
  • Commitment – 2nd Timothy 2:2; 1st Thessalonians 4:11.
  • Service – Genesis 39:11; Revelation 7:15.
Challenges and Lessons from our Case Subject – Joseph
  • Temptations - Genesis 39:7-12
  • Lied Against - Genesis 39:14:18
  • Naked/striped of his garment (he experienced shame and disgrace).
  • Imprisoned – He was caged physically, but he never allowed his mind, gift, talent and potent abilities to be caged Genesis 39:20.
  • He was a responsible and reliable son, steward and slave, prisoner, reputable leader, and also a servant/minister of the Most High. Genesis 37:12-18; 39:3-6, 8-9, 22-23.
  • He was humble and obedient.

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt. 4)

The Power of God Acts 1:8

To really succeed in life, it is only through the power of God one can achieve it. The power of God is the strength, the working force of God Almighty. It is this power that enables a natural man with the capacity to do the unusual (supernatural) in a usual (natural) world; causing him to make a difference among his colleagues and in his business.

The power of God comes after you have received the Holy Spirit and it doesn’t just come for you or for any selfish use but comes first for WITNESSING –Acts 1:8, for doing the things of God first and from doing the things of God (service), you gain/get/receive insights and also develop the ability (power) and strength to work out things for yourself with ease Matthew 6:33.

What Is The Power For?

1. Power is for profiting Deuteronomy 8:18.
The power of God will not work for you though you possess it until you have come to embrace SERVICE-the work of God. It is in your Service to Him that you develop your strength and it is through service you tap into the mind of Christ for ideas that will single you out of your peers.

2. It makes you become a force.
When the power of God comes you become a formidable, unconquerable and unchallengeable force to the world of whatsoever you do. Psalm 105:15.

3. Power causes perfection in all you do. 2 Samuel 22:33.
Everything that seems crooked and unstable in your life, business and destiny becomes stable, also everything you lay your hands upon prospers Deuteronomy 29:9.

4. Power brings you to the place of influence Matthew 4:19 “Follow me and I will make you”.

Until you arrive at the place/position of power (influence), no one will like to follow you. Influence comes based on the power vested on someone and also on the Impact he makes continually on others.

Note: Before power comes, there is always BROKENNESS. Why? So that you will know how to handle the people around positively.

5. Power launches you into your Exploits; spiritually, financially, etc. Mark 3:15, Luke 10:19.

6. Power from God causes Outstanding Performance; your performance determines your result and your result dictates your worth and wealth Acts 1:8, Luke 10:19

7. Power delivers into your hand Authority Luke 4:36.
And you begin to decree whatever you want to see and the one that you don’t like around you Job 22:28.

8. Power is for witnessing Acts 1:8, Matthew 6:33.
Until you be a witness of Christ to your world, God will never allow you to experience His riches in the Kingdom.

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt3)

MEDITATION (On The Word Of God) Joshua 1:8

To prosper means to be successful in all spheres (ramifications) of life. It means to flourish and thrive in anything one does. The same is what God wants for you and I as a believer.

Meditation is critical to Prosperity. In order to achieve great and lasting success, meditation is one of the KEYS. Meditation causes your flourishing, seasonal fruitfulness, unending and unlimited prosperity, why? Because great things are not found on the surface but in the deep and until you dig deep through the tool of meditation, you will never reach the Treasure-Base.

Meditation is like shaking together the content in a container. When you shake a container that has substance in it, what you get is a Smooth Mixture. You cannot achieve your best nor get to the peak in your endeavour until you engage in Meditation. Meditation brings together all that you’ve learnt, heard, known, seen and taught to form a Blend for Creativity.

What Happens When You Meditate
  1. Psalm 1:2-3. Meditation launches/initiates your productivity through unrestricted prosperity.
  2. Luke 21:14-15. You become a man of Wisdom which cannot be held in a corner by any adversary.
  3. 1Timothy 4:15. It causes your Profiting. (The reason why some businesses and lives are not growing is because they’ve engaged the ministry of meditation. It is an act that must be embraced and engaged in order to dig out the hidden riches that is within).
  4. Psalm 119:99. Meditation brings Understanding and makes you Outstanding in all your endeavours.
When Do You Meditate

a. After Reading the Word of God (Psalm 1:2; Psalm 119:15). It connects you to the supernatural depth of knowledge, guides you and also become your model/pattern for living.

b. After Praying. It enables you hear from God, the answer to what you discussed with Him.

c. Before Praising (Psalm 104:34). When you can meditate, you will know what to praise Him for and how; and when you present to Him qualitative praise, you get in return His Presence which carries power and that power becomes your power to achieve success in every good thing you lay your hands on.

d. Before any activity in the morning, after every other activity at night, at midnight (Psalm 139:17; Psalm63:6; Psalm 119:148).

e. Meditate on Testimonies (yours and others) {Psalm 77:11-12}.

f. Always (Psalm 119:97; Joshua 1:8)

  • Show me a man who meditates (both on the Word of God and on other Life Lessons) and I will show you a man that cannot be held down by ANY circumstance of life.

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt2)

by Joseph AKINOLA
THE WORD OF GOD - Joshua 1:8

Prosperity is the will of God for believers but it has its price. It is the will of God for you as a believer to prosper but taking considerations the will of the believer himself, it is not his will but his wish. Will goes with discipline, diligence and dedication, while wish deals with aspiration without any commitment. Anybody can aspire and desire but to really achieve the aspired and desired, there is need to be goal oriented and commitment-bound.

To prosper means to be successful in all spheres (ramifications) of life. It means to flourish and thrive in anything one does. The same is what God wants for you and I as a believer.

Among the keys the opens/unlocks the door of Prosperity is the Word of God. The Word of God is powerful that it can produce for you anything you can ever desire in the Kingdom provided you are ready to pay its price.

Joshua 1:8 instructs that, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night…”

The instruction, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth” literally means that the book of the law (your own Bible) must be your Daily Reading. Reading it daily makes it unfolds itself to you and also makes you enjoy all the benefits attached such as:

Daily Divine Health
Daily Business Ideas
Daily Marriage Instructions/Tonics
Daily Divine Wealth Creation Ideas
Daily Divine Financial Tips, Name it.

All the benefits you get comes as a result of how often you operate/open/access the Book.

The Word of God is meant to PROSPER you.

The Word of God is the voice of God. God’s Word is the first level of hearing His voice. If you can hear Him through His written voice, you will soon graduate into hearing His audible voice. If you cannot hear His voice in His Word, you can’t hear His voice in your ears and in your heart, thus, you will continually lack directions.

When the Book is closed, destiny is closed. Open the Book and you open up your destiny into the Supernatural realm where you become a producer of proofs to the Natural world/realm.

Every bit of the Word of God you consume/feed on trains you, builds both your immune and mental system, nourishes your spirit-man, soul and brain (in thinking – creativity wise), your heart (in meditation) and your body (health wise).

The quality of the Word of God you carry or possess (in your possession) determines how much you can possess (achieve/acquire) in life as a believer.

It is through the Word everything you are and that you see around came into being and how much you want to prosper both financially, materially, mentally, martially, professionally, career-wise, etc will be traceable to and achieved by how much of the Word you open yourself up to and make yourself available to. In this part of the world, we do claim that there isn’t time for studying the Word, but we give time to/for our hobby, business, games and exercises in order to be healthy meanwhile, sound and lasting health abounds in the word Proverbs 4:20-22.

What To Do With The Word Of God

1. Labor in the Word 1Timothy 5:17
Laboring in the Word has do with ‘working hard’, ‘putting all your effort’, ‘keeping at it’ – the word of God – making sure that every part of it is Learnt, Practiced and Taught to others.

How To Labor In The Word 2Timothy 2:15

The Word of God you never labor in can never produce anything for you.
  • By Studying The Word -> Studying the word of God gives you deep insight into the deep things which God has in stock for you. It deepens your root in the knowledge of the Word of God and this causes you to be certified /approved against shame, mediocrity and all manner of unpalatable circumstances.

  • By Meditating On The Word -> Meditating on the Word of God gives you a firm hold/grip on what it says and the power in the portion you meditate on carries. 2 Tim. 2:15 says, “A workman that needeth not to be ashamed” – Meditation makes to stand out of your peers & colleagues. It gives you a class of your own, this is the key that makes you not to be ashamed and displaced during the trials of life. A man that will never be ashamed is a man, who meditates always, because Meditators are winners, they are creative beings. They tap into the Supernatural realm for resources to fix the Natural.

  • By Rightly Dividing The Word Of God -> Rightly dividing the word means teaching the depth of truth you have learnt to other believers and being a witness to your world (Matt. 28:19, Matt. 6:33).

Because the Bible says in Proverbs 14:23, “In all labour there is profit…”, each time you labour in the Word of God, you get for yourself a reward for it. Among the things/benefits you get is life and profit in all areas of your life (Prov.13:11; John 6:27; Prov. 14:23).

What The Word Does

1. It Prospers, provided you obey/follow the rules – Joshua 1:8

2. Gives Life – Proverbs 4:20-21

3. It gives Health to both your body, finance, marriage, family, career, name it – Proverbs 4:22

4. It Heals you – In which area/aspect of your life do you need healing; harkening unto the Word of God heals you of all infirmities. The reason why you still fall sick is because you’ve not been saturated enough with the word of God.

5. It Delivers and Liberates from all oppressions of the Devil/wicked – Psalm 107:20

6. It Quickens you/your spirit-man – Hebrews 4:12

7. It is Powerful - Hebrews 4:12. The Word of God has power and can make you to be full of power both spiritually and naturally.

8. It is Sharp – Hebrews 4:12. It can access any part of the earth and the supernatural and also gives you access to anywhere.

9. It Destroys - Hebrews 4:12. It can destroy your enemy and also destroy germs (evil army/material) in your body.

10. It Discerns - Hebrews 4:12. It gives/bestows on you the ability to discern the state of things/situations around you.

11. It Illuminates – Psalm 119:105. It gives light to every dark areas of your life and also gives you Direction.

12. It Protects – Proverbs 30:5. The Word of God shields whoever believes in it.

13. It Blesses – Luke 11:8; Psalm 119:11. When you keep the Word in your heart, it blesses your lifestyle and immune your system against sin.

14. It gives you Victory – Acts 19:20. Nurture the Word of God and it will Grow and Prevail over every unpalatable circumstances in your life.

15. It builds you up against any attack of the enemy & also gives you all the inheritance you deserve as a Believer. Acts 20:32.

16. You become Faith-Filled through the Word of God. Romans 10:17.

17. It becomes your Helmet for Protection and your Sword both for fighting and defense. Ephesians 6:17.

18. It Sanctifies you – Acts 20:32. The Word of God sets you apart and makes you holy and fit for the Master’s use.


  • Until you live by every Word of God both the former and the latter, you can never be satisfied.
  • The Word of God cannot bless or heal you and deliver you from all your destructions by your ignorance until you have harkened / listened to it and obeyed it carefully and fearfully to the latter.
  • The Word of God can combat every mountain of ignorance over your life when you give attention to it – Proverbs 4:20

Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt1)


Isaiah 1:19
Obedience: This is the act of ‘doing as told’.

Obedience is the vital key that unlocks the door to Unlimited Greatness and Immeasurable Abundance.

It is through genuine obedience to the Word of God that every believer can tap into the hidden resources that had been made available to him and also connect to unseen treasures of the Almighty.

Blessings and prosperity doesn’t come from east, west nor south but from God Almighty (Psalm 75:6), and to access that blessing, you will need to go through the gate Obedience without any compromise. In order to enter into your land of rest and eat the fruit in it, Obedience is the Key (Isaiah 1:19).

The Bible says in John 2:5, “…Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it”.

Until you do whatsoever you are instructed to do towards your prosperity, breakthrough, success, you can never obtain a meaningful result nor attain a top position/place in life.

Know that every Instruction comes with Unction – the unction to prosper you – if you follow it to the latter.

The Word of God is for Reproof and Exhortation meant to drive you if only you are willing to follow it – to the land of Milk and Honey.

Types of Obedience
1. No Obedience
2. Partial Obedience. 1 Kings 13:1-29.

1 Samuel 15:22
“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the
voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”

Partial obedience leads to Untimely Death; untimely death both of one’s business, career, marriage and destiny.

Partial obedience cuts believer’s destiny short.

Partial obedience ceases the flow of God’s grace upon a man’s life.

It terminates or brings to a hold the plans and purpose of God on a believer’s life except he quickly realizes his error and asks for the mercy of God.

3. Total Obedience. John 2:5; Luke 5:4-5

John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.”

Luke 5:4-5 “Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.”

Total obedience is the obedience of “…Nevertheless at thy word…”

The reason why many refuse to obey God (fully) is because they have alternatives. The fellows in the Scriptures above had no alternatives than to do what was instructed; because it is only the miracle of God through obedience can they succeed in their ongoing projects.

Note that no tangible and lasting result can be guaranteed outside what both God and His Word is saying.

Your Blessing is HID in your Obedience.
Your Blessing is HINGED/ATTACHED to your obedience.

  Further Reading: Psalm 1:1-3
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."


By Joseph Akinola
                                                                         HELP YOURSELF

Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16

“…And Walk Therein…”

In the quest to achieving success, the ‘Helping Yourself’ phase is very critical before you get your desired result.

Until you resolve within yourself to help yourself, you will never be able to harvest the goodies God had made ready for you. Because God will not do for you what you can do for yourself.

James 1:23-27.
"23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

                                   How To Help Yourself
Be the Doer of what you have Learnt – James 1:23 .
See the Word of God as your Daily Mirror to put yourself on Check – James 1:23b.
Prayerfully fight against NEGLIGENCE – James 1:24.
Live the Word (live your life based on what the Bible teaches) – James 1:25.
Watch what you SAY – (too much and negative words destroy), or else you might not get your desired results – James1:26.
Righteousness: This gives you a Right Stand with God – James 1:27a.
Help Others – James 1:27b.

Note that each time you help other people, you are not helping them in the real sense, you are helping yourself and the generations to come after you.

If you want to lead people; raise people, when they are raised, they will need a guide and this is when your leading will be needed.

Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16, Proverbs 14:12, Proverbs 16:25, Joshua1:8

Success in life has different meaning to different folks / individuals. There are the right success and the wrong success; the good and the bad, the positive success/achievement and the negative.

To succeed in life, there are ways/routes and things one needs to search out, discover, embrace, follow and engage.

The good ways are the lessons from both your success/life journey and other people.

What you learn from Lessons are, ‘how it worked’, ‘what worked’ and ‘what could be done – Creativity’.

What you learn from experiences are, ‘how not to do a thing’ and ‘how it went/worked’.

Lessons cannot be acquired without research. Lessons can never be obtained without submission – to learn. Lessons cannot be acquired without Conscious and Thorough study both in the Word of God, study in the field of your expertise and study about the dynamics of what / which project you want to execute Joshua 1:8.

In order to acquire lessons, there must be a Disciplined Meditation both on the Word of God and about the project you’re working on.

Thoughts On This Formula
  • When you meditate, what you meditate over enlarges and becomes broaden to you. When you meditate, what you meditate on gets engraved on the tablet of your heart acting as an instruction/guide, causing you to remain focus, bold and clear about your vision/project.
  • Meditation gives birth to Medications. Meditation provokes Results. Regular Meditation causes you to be Creative and Innovative in whatever you do.
  •  Each time you Meditate, you birth the Solution to the problem/challenges at hand/at sight/view.

 Action Line
  • Have a Lesson Book; where you write your lesson about life, both your personal lessons and the ones from people around.
  • Meditate regularly both on the Word of God and about your business/vision/project/proposals.
  • Get to work immediately you get a medication (the ‘how to do it’) before you engage on the ‘Analysis that Leads to the Paralysis’ of the vision/projects.



Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16, …. Ask for the old paths”
The Old Paths --- The Experiences

People have passed through a lot of things and anything you want to do or journey you want to go through, their experiences will help you avoid some mistakes, help you do things in certain ways which will give you speed in whatever you do.

Experiences will show you ‘how to do’ and ‘how not to do’.
The experience contains the history about what you want to achieve. Among their experiences are all the/their personal experiences, testimonies, lessons and their achievement details.

Warning / Note: Don’t be shy, too cocky or too reclusive not to go out and learn about the experience.
The experience teaches you about the past and the history of your field, vision and your project.

Yes, your vision/project/assignment is one of its kind, you still need it. Yes, someone might steal it, if they steal it, they can’t run with that vision, why? You are a peculiar being with a unique vision. Your vision is for you and because it is not their vision, the resources to run that vision will not gravitate towards that stolen vision.

Philippians 4:9
Your needs will be supplied based on your Demand, including the enquiries, direction and experience you request for.

The Need For Mentors/Mentoring
Mentors are men who take you on tour. That field/vision/plan/project/marriage of yours is the tour (journey) and you need someone who had gone through it to lead you through the way/road.

Mentor: meaning Men & Tour.

MEN: They are called Men (both male and female) because of their Bank Of Experiences.

TOUR: This is the journey/road/way you want them To Lead You Through.

Types Of Mentors
Direct Mentors: They are the ones you can relate with Directly and Interact with One-On-One.
Passive Mentors: The ones you learn from through their Books, Materials, Conferences and Meetings.

Get a Mentor. Mentors are Helpers of Destiny. Mentors Teach and Guide you both by instruction and experience.




Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16

Ask – to Ask means to Demand, Request, Call for, Apply for……
Until you learn to ask question about what you don’t know or what has been a puzzle to you, life in its entirety remains a burden.
In whatever thing you are doing, or what feat you want to achieve in life, there are some questions you will need to ask; demands you will need to make and request you will need to place in order to get there.

In any or everything you do / you are doing, there is a question you will need to ask that will give you / enable you the access into the next level.

Ask questions, make enquiries from God for direction, ask people for help. Ask how far from those who have achieved tangible result in what / where you want to be.

Ask for the History of the way (vision) you are going through / working on.

Matthew 7:7
When people hear this, they think they could ask for anything and it would come. It literally means, ask for what to do to achieve the thing; how to put some things in place in order to prepare for their delivery.

Ask Men – God instructed you and I to ask in Jeremiah 6:16
Ask life what it holds for you. Life has got some things to offer you but until you place your demand, you will never possess them.

Your asking could also be in form of Action. When you Act on some of the Opportunities and Direction that you get both from God and man, you are asking for your own share in it and you will definitely get yours/it in Jesus’ Name.

“You Will Never Make History Until You Mind History”

Open Your Eyes, Ears And Mind To Opportunities
Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16
“…. See……..”

What do you see? What can you see? - (Your Seeing Ability is your Possessing Capacity) Jeremiah 1:11-13, Rom. 10:17. It is how you open your eyes that will determine what you see.
What do you See?

Thoughts For The Week
  • How you stand will greatly influence what you see Part 1 (Stand).
  • Where and who you stand with will immeasurably catapult you to where your destination is Part 2 (In The Ways). {Your Association Initiates Your Acceleration}
  • What you See and the Size (how you see it) will beyond measure change your orientation and disposition about life; How You See life and ultimately your attitude towards life. All these will culminate in making you an enviable personality and a point of reference in your area of endeavor.
  • Explore every available opportunity that comes your way with Discernment.
  • Don’t forget that “An open eye with the eagerness to learn what there is to know about develops the mind into achieving success, excellence and peak performance”.

Proverbs 20:13 says, “… Open Thine Eyes, And Thou Shalt Be Satisfied With Bread”.

Your satisfaction comes only from what you see (both the present & the future, the physical and the spiritual), how you see (the distance and angle), when you see (the timing) and how you work on what you see.


Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16 “…. In the ways….”
‘In The Ways’ has to do with Your Positioning.
Your positioning matters a lot in the quest for success. Your present position determines what happens to you/your destiny. Where you are standing? Are you still in the Business, plan or on that Vision well Informed?

Your positioning, location really matters a lot in whatever field you are or project you are working on presently.
Yes, you are well positioned but are you still in the flow – (Do you still get yourself updated or updates about your projects and vision?)

When you don’t update yourself, surely you will soon be out of date – Obsolete (and out of demand).

Be Courageous
A very good example: Joshua
One of the major tools you will need while in the ways in order not to waiver is Courage – Joshua 1:6-7
Courage & Faith in the Living God is needed.

The Right disposition about people and life.

Thought For The Week
  • Are you still in the ways or you’re out already?
  • In the ways (your vision), there is the Principal Way (God), who will show you the way (steps to follow), which you might not find until you look unto Him. [Jesus is the way John 14:6], no man can achieve anything tangible and lasting without / outside Him.
  • Hebrews 12:2 – Looking unto Jesus the Author and the Finisher.
  • Right position (physically) without the right lifestyle (righteousness) will never get you anywhere but just misery – Proverbs 14:34.
  • Being consistent (standing) in the ways (in good position/vision) without your God –Creator will never get you to the level of Creativity and Innovation. (ye are gods) 1John 5:19


Anchor Scripture: Jeremiah 6:16
“Thus saith the Lord, stand in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said. We will not walk therein.”
“Thus says the Lord, stand……”
Success in life is traceable to some vital keys & instructions which when adhere to & embraced, make one out-shine his peers, colleagues and competition in whatever a man does.
The place of success/the need for success in a Christian’s life is the beginning of all attainment as far as God is concerned – Joshua 1:8. “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
Success is a place/level of rest, accomplishment; success is the least of all attainment level in what God programmed for mankind. To succeed, there is a great need to find a Vision and Walk Consistently In It.

In our anchor Scripture, Jeremiah 6:16, it says, “Stand you in the ways…”
To Stand means to be Consistent, Focused, to Concentrate, Remain in; it means to really Soak oneself into whatsoever one is doing.
Habakkuk 2:2-3, Consistency brings Unending Attainment.


Until you answer the above questions about your Vision and your plans, vision, plans and projects will remain on hold!
Habakkuk 2:3 says, “…though it tarries, wait for it….”.

Thought On This Formular
Don’t leave/drop the vision before its Yielding Time.
Don’t forget that where you are positioned will determine how you will be found.
