What sort of title is this?! *Like I know what you are thinking* This is the only name I could come up with seeing that this our God is INDESCRIBABLE.
Words will fail me if I try to describe him but there are two things I know for sure; there is a God and I am not him.
Before you ever think of describing him, remember that; Limited can’t understand Unlimited, Birth and death can’t understand the one that has no beginning and end, Finite can’t understand infinite. The more I try to understand, the more difficult it becomes, I can’t seem to fathom his “awesomeness”.
Guess what?! The more you think you know, the more you don’t know.
Indescribable is simply; Too extraordinary for description. God is way too supreme for you to comprehend .
Even the bible says a whole lot about it;
“But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. “- Rom 1:20
“God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon. Madame Day holds classes every morning, Professor Night lectures each evening. Their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded, But their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere”. -Psalm 19:1-4
” We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment.”- Colossians 1:16
It is so amazing when he says ; “No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it what God has arranged for those who love him”. Then he goes; “But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you”. *DEEP SIGH*
I can go on and on talking about this God…
Need I say more? Join me and thousands of people as we worship this God, if not for anything for the life he has given us. When we begin to ask questions, we just put God in a box and he is way bigger than that. Just enjoy and bask in his glory. The answers to your questions may and may not come, but you know what? HE IS STILL GOD

IT’S CHRISTMAS!!!! YAAAY!!!! Merry Christmas everyone. This is the usual message you hear, including “DONT FORGET THE REASON FOR THE SEASON”. Not saying those messages aren’t cool please don’t misquote me.
So i woke up this morning feeling all cool with myself after sending voice notes to peeps. That’s by the way. One question popped in my head; What if?
Hence my writing; what if Adam and Eve didn’t disobey? Maybe we wouldn’t have had Jesus, or maybe we would have but he would have probably been an ordinary person, maybe just another creation from God and he would have probably died the way others did, still they sinned *sigh*. I am sure most of you would say “LIFE FOR SWEET”, Well God had a better plan.
Again What if Angel Gabriel decided to be proud like Satan and say ” God, how far you na, I no fit go meet Mary wetin you think say she go talk” LOL! of course he didn’t say that and he also had no choice than to deliver the message.
What If Mary said No, Well she had a choice, at first she didn’t understand what was going on, but because she was humble and she believed saying be it unto me according to thy word. But wait o, she also had a choice to abort the baby after all if people were going to point fingers it would be at her. I am sure people would have gossiped about her and of course she turned deaf ears to them because she knew God had a better plan.
Now Joseph would have said; “Wetin consign me for this matter na, after all no be me impregnate am” But really if Joseph had said that, maybe God would have found a replacement for him but because of his humility and the blessings that would follow afterwards.
Finally what if Jesus decided not to die for us, trust me he had a choice not to die he could have said no also but because he knew what his father has sent him to do and also because of the love he has for us, there is no greater love than this.
This is the best time to love your maker again; HE is the best thing that would ever happen to you.
Gaurd your heart with all diligence….
“though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”
First, attention is drawn to the phrase SHADOW OF DEATH. That phrase does not imply death in itself, it talks about situations so close to death. One’s shadow can’t be far from a person, your shadow can’t fall on something far away, it has to be something of a very close range. Before one can claim to have walked through the valley of the shadow of death, then one must have been pretty close to death in itself (death may not necessarily be physical, it could be financially, academically, emotionally e.t.c.). Now, it says ” I will fear no evil” why? “FOR THOU ART WITH ME”
Interesting scripture, at this point you ask yourself, if He was with me how come I found myself in the valley of the shadow of death. Let’s take a look at the chapter now and pay attention to the pronouns used;
“HE maketh me to lie down in green pastures…”
“HE leadeth me beside the still waters…”
“HE restoreth my soul…”
“HE leadeth me in the path of righteousness…”
“I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”
See what “HE” did and see what “I” did. Most times we find ourselves walking in the valley of the shadow of death, it is as a result of our deeds and not God but the good news is that even when we walk through that valley, He is with us. At an early stage in my life, I had a conception which I now see has wrong. I was of the opinion that once you’re with God, you loose the ability to go wrong or make a wrong decision but this scripture says otherwise. The passage is saying when I made the decision that led to me walking in the valley of the shadow of death, God was with me (that’s why I will fear no evil). But I still made that decision to walk through that valley anyway. The difference between I and the world is that He is with me. The passage says “goodness and mercy shall follow me… and I will DWELL in the house of the Lord” so all I did was through WALK THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death, it is just a phase, it is not the destination. If He is indeed your shepherd then you can’t dwell in that valley, you’ll just walk through.
“…Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me”
In modern English, it can be simply put; “Your cane and Your whip, they comfort me. Wonderful isn’t it? The sentence itself makes one think, how can a rod and a staff bring comfort? From the little I know, every shepherd has a rod or a staff. Yet the sheep tends to be the most obedient of animals. The simple truth is no matter how “spiritual” and “upright” you are with God and man, you will still go through the “rod” and “staff” experience and the reason is not far fetched. It is simply because the sheep has to conform to the will of the shepherd. No shepherd allows a sheep to go on a frolic of its own because it is obedient, except the sheep doesn’t belong to the shepherd. If you have your life all planned and everything is going according to the plan you have then it is time to turn to Daddy and ask questions (except you don’t belong to Him of course). Because the rod and staff must comfort you. Christianity is not a bread and beans affair, it’s not a rosy ride, it is a rosy destination. The rod and staff are not meant to be funny but at the end of the day, they bring comfort. May God help us
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.
In his opening address he said,
“We can’t keep Christians from going to church.”
“We can’t keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the
“We can’t even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with
“Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is
“So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish
dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don’t have time to develop a
relationship with Jesus Christ..”
“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil:
“Distract them from gaining hold of their Saviour and maintaining
that vital connection throughout their day!”
“How shall we do this?” his demons shouted.
“Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable
schemes to occupy their minds,” he answered.
“Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow.”
“Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to
work 6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty
“Keep them from spending time with their children.”
“As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape
from the pressures of work!”
“Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still,
“Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they
drive.” To keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their
home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays
non-biblical music constantly.”
“This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ.”
“Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers.”
“Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day.”
“Invade their driving moments with billboards.”
“Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs,
sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free
products, services and false hopes..”
“Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their
husbands will believe that outward beauty is what’s important, and they’ll
become dissatisfied with their wives. “
“Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night.”
“Give them headaches too! “
“If they don’t give their husbands the love they need, they will
begin to look elsewhere.”
“That will fragment their families quickly!”
“Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children
the real meaning of Christmas.”
“Give them an Easter bunny so they won’t talk about his resurrection
and power over sin and death.”
“Even in their recreation, let them be excessive.”
“Have them return from their recreation exhausted.”
“Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on God’s
creation. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts,
and movies instead.”
“Keep them busy, busy, busy!”
“And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip
and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences.”
“Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to
seek power from Jesus.”
“Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their
health and family for the good of the cause.”
“It will work!”
“It will work!”
It was quite a plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians
everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there.
Having little time for their God or their families.
Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change
The question remains; “Has the devil really succeeded in this plan?”
At times God really wants to talk to us but we are too busy with the things HE has given us. That job that you go about with, HE gave it to you. The Course that is making you too busy, HE gave you.
Think of it this way, maybe you lost your Job so HE could talk to you, or you failed that course so HE could draw closer to you or rather you fell sick so HE could get your attention. HE does not hate you, HE just need you to listen to him so HE could help you with your life.Everything you are going through HE knows about it and HE has a perfect plan for you
ARE YOU LISTENING?
