180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 179

On the eve of a journey’s end! What an experience it has been.

My prayer is always for new experiences with Daddy. This year, I got so much more than I could share here.

God has been my peace, my friend, my shoulder to cry on and my shield.

He has corrected me, rerouted me, restored and elevated me.

If I’m not sure of anything else I can certainly say that he will never leave me. This year has taught me that he’s always near.

To my friend, my God, thank you for loving me and choosing me.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 148

I saw the car before me get hit by a truck.

Glory to God that there was traffic so there was no speeding.  The car and I were in the right lane.  The truck was in the left lane. Due to a bus stopping in the left lane ahead of the truck, I estimated that the truck would want to go around the bus. In order to do that, it would have to come over in the right lane. 

So I decided to slow down to allow the truck to come between the car ahead and me.  The truck started to do that…. But in the process, it clipped the left rear-end of the car, pinned it, and caused it to spin horizontal. So the car and the truck formed a T.

All the while, I was watching in disbelief.

This happened after I was listening to a prayer meeting that instructed us to pray Psalm 91 over our cars, home, etc. And I did.

So you must know what I’m boasting about today 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 140

As I wrap up my final exam, I pray for grace and strength.

At this point, the problem is less of knowing what to do and more of how to phrase it. That’s a problem I don’t mind having.

I am trusting Daddy to give me the strength, wisdom, knowledge and understanding to do what is required🙏. Whatever you’re faced with completing today, I pray the same for you.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 99

This morning, I reflected on how amazing God is to me.

Years ago, a friend betrayed my trust. I asked Daddy to let me speak with the person but not remember what they did. I prayed this while I was in the processing of forgiving and letting it go.

Praise be to God, I can honestly say I don’t recall one moment when I was speaking with the person and remembered what was done. And I realised because I’m the type to play back things in my mind when I’m talking to people.

But God is gracious in this. Put it before God if you’re struggling to forgive and let go the memories, especially when interacting with the person(s). He’ll do it for you as well.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 64

I remember the days when I either wouldn’t consult God about many areas of my life. Sometimes, I’d be asking his permission AFTER I started. My attitude at those times was expecting him to approve since I already began.

So, I prayed. I asked for help to seek him first, during, and after everything in my life.

I remember this because today I find myself asking Daddy from before the matter has even become a reality. Rather than doing my own thing, I started to seek him for his will. I’m not fully there yet but I’m much better than before.

I’m grateful that Daddy heard my prayer and has brought me this far.

I like this new habit of seeking his direction from the get-go.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 60

What do I boast about today?

There are many things I want to share about who Daddy is and what he has been doing. However, I don’t feel like it is time to share them.

Still, there is good news to share.

My sister has completed her first degree and will be graduating this year! This is amazing because her initial attempt ended prematurely. (Sidebar: I honestly think God rerouted her life. She doesn’t share the same view. Lol). But she never gave up. She started over on a part time basis, while working full time. She kept getting As right through. I am proud of her because she did whatever it took to focus and not fall behind.

I am grateful to God for changing the course she was on. I thank him for sending her back home to be supported by her family while she studied and worked.

Please agree with me in prayer that she gets a better job soon.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 15

Last week, I held one of my god-daughters as she slept. I looked down at her and I saw a dead baby in a coffin.

I laid my hand on her chest and prayed. I rebuked the spirit of death and declared life over her. 🙏

In a matter of minutes, I completely forgot what I saw and what I did. Then, I gave her back to her mom and kissed the little princess goodbye.

This week, her mom told me that she and the baby (and everyone in the house) contracted COVID-19 and were not feeling well. She said that the baby wasn’t eating. I still didn’t remember the prayer.

However, this morning, as I listened to the song Rumours by Maverick City Music, I reflected on the goodness of God. Then, Daddy brought forcefully to my memory the prayer over the baby last week and her contracting COVID-19 this week. Immediately tears came to my eyes. I was amazed at his goodness. 😭

Listen, some things may not make sense now but do them anyway. Daddy will connect the dots later on. 🙌

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 180

Congratulations!! We have reached Day 180 of 180 Days of Boasting about God!!

My final boasting is about the God of the answered prayers.

When I started this series, my one request was to get new experiences with Daddy so that I would have new things to boast about this year. And that prayer was answered. I saw him in a way I’ve never seen him before.

The most memorable moment was when he revealed my spiritual name and told he that he will restore everything that was stolen from me.

From the start of the year to now, he has both confirmed and manifested his response to my request.

As I close this series, I want to express my gratitude to all the readers. Especially the persons who read most or all of the blogs in this series. (Please like, subscribe, comment, and share your favourite blog in this series). Without you, boasting would be pointless. Thank you for allowing me to show you my version of the God I serve.

🤗🤗🤗

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 148

I love it when Daddy inspires me to pray.

Have you ever remembered someone and then thought, “nah, they are okay”. Only to realise later that same day that they are going through something?

At those times, I try to pray as the Spirit leads. And I love that as will pray about whatever I receive and not have to limit myself because of what I know. Inspired prayers rely on the Holy Ghost, not my own knowledge.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 134

Recently, I felt like I had too many spiritual things to do. I got one task to work with someone and before I knew it, there was another person to work with too.

And I felt the weight and tension of it all. I even said that I’d take a vacation leave where I’d do absolutely nothing but de-stress.

Then I was praying with one of my best friends and she said she saw Daddy stretching me. That’s when I realised that the feeling of the weight or tension was really more of a pulling.

And now, I no longer feel weighed down and burdened. But I trust the process God is taking me through. Stretched to do more for him.

Let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth (and in my life) as it is in heaven.

~ The Lord’s Prayer

On May 1, 2021, just a few days ago, I prayed and then I declared on my WhatsApp status that this month is one where I will honour the inner circle, cut some friendships, and focus on the persons I was assigned to edify.

To say that this was a God declaration is an understatement. I’ve had so many opportunities to honour the inner circle already. I’ve seen a clearer path to working with those to whom I’m assigned. So much so that I feel like I’ve done a month’s worth of work and June is only a few days away.

I love to see Daddy’s kingdom manifesting and him guiding me into alignment with his heavenly will for it to be replicated in the earth.

The boastful thing about it is that Daddy wants his will aligned with ours as much as, or even more than, we want it for ourselves. He literally gave us the key in the Lord’s Prayer to get in place to accept that he has a plan that should be established in the earth.

Let your kingdom come and your will be done on earth (and in my life) as it is in heaven.

~ The Lord’s Prayer

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 79

While the world grapples with the effects of the virus and sadly we hear of so many persons dying from it…

I am grateful for being virus free so far.

Pray for those who are hurting and have suffered loss because of the pandemic. One thing I’m sure about is that God will hear us.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 73

Usually, I would pray on my way to or from work. More often than not, it was while I was going to work.

Then, I’d get to work and be so busy that I don’t even get to stop what I’m doing and pray for 30 minutes, as I’d like. Some days I just ate at my desk and not have a full lunch hour (I’m going to stop that still 🐣).

Since I didn’t get to pray as often as I’d like, I ended up feeling guilty for not giving Daddy enough time during my day. And here’s what he told me: 👇

A relationship with Me lasts forever. When you keep Me on your mind throughout the day, that’s communication. Don’t feel as if you haven’t spent sufficient time with Me simply because it isn’t done traditionally [kneeling and praying]. What’s the benefit if you spend one hour in intense prayer but never hear My voice or think of Me for the remaining 23 hours? Engage Me throughout the day and be intentional about hearing from Me. That’s is enough.

🙌 🙌 🙌 🙌 🙌 🙌

There is literally no condemnation in conversations with Daddy. No condemnation, just instructions.

Spiritual Battery

Running low

Last year, I got so low spiritually that I could hardly focus when I prayed and I had no desire to study the Word of God. I prayed, tearfully begging God to step in and show me what’s wrong. I poured out my heart and told him that I needed him to point me in the right direction or I may very well die.

I recognised my emptiness. So I told him that if he wasn’t going to do anything to effect a change, then he should just let me physically die. This is because without him, I am nothing and life is meaningless.

Car issues

Strangely, my car started to develop some issues: the engine would shut off but the ignition would be left on, the headlights would notably blink when it auto started at nights, and the driving wasn’t always smooth as it bucked/stuttered from time to time. When I looked at all the symptoms, I felt that the battery was the issue.

Naturally, I took it to the mechanic asap. He tested the battery and it showed that the car’s battery was weak. So I needed to get a new one quickly. Funnily enough, I named my car “Purpose”. While driving, after getting the diagnosis, God revealed to me that these two events were similar. Purpose, the car, was struggling to perform due to battery issues. While I was also struggling to perform spiritually, but was my battery??

Spiritual battery

I asked God to show me my spiritual battery so that I could change it. Quickly, I assumed it was the bible but as I thought about it, I saw that the bible was external to me and it is something I have to feed myself on. The bible, therefore, was my fuel. But still, what was my spiritual battery? Then I asked myself, “what is inside of you that you must turn on to get moving?”. The answer was instantaneous.

My spiritual battery is my prayer life. I needed to change it asap. And that’s what I did. I started a series of fasting and prayer, forcing myself to pray meaningfully and to remain focused. That made a world of difference.

Are you running low?

Have you been struggling to read, pray, or fast? Have you been weak to temptations, more than the norm? Have you felt like you’ve lost your desire to serve God? Have you been finding comfort in just about everything else but God, recently?

You may need to change your spiritual battery. Change how you pray. Shift your prayer times. Pray shorter and more precise prayers rather than lengthy ones. Find a prayer closet. Pray more during the day, for 5-15 minutes each hour, when at work/school, where possible.

Change your spiritual battery and you’ll notice a better performance in your life.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 131

Recently, I got so bombarded by life and caught up in completing some activities before it was too late, that I forgot to post (boast) daily about who God is to me.

Throughout all this ‘busyness’, I heard a statement that connected with my spirit. The statement simply was, “God wants to interrupt your life”. The speaker then went on to encouraging the viewers to be open to his divine interruptions. Immediately, I prayed asking Daddy to help me to be open to his interruptions and not push him aside in order to continue any task.

Let me just tell you this, God wants to speak to you even when you are busy. He wants to interrupt you to have a praise break or a conversation. In this period of preoccupation with life, I realised that Daddy will make the effort to get my attention on him so that I can remain connected to him.

That’s super thoughtful and loving of Him. He’s got my best interest at heart.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 120

The thing with God is that he makes himself so easily approachable. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that he is with me. I know that regardless of my spiritual state, I am able to meet him for grace.

It’s that simple. It doesn’t require me spending hours on my knees before I am able to hear him. I don’t have to go through a spiritual cleanse. Once I seek him, he does me the honour of showing up and talking with me.

Wow….this big God makes time for little me.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 112

The encounter.

The truth is that if you go after God, he will reveal himself to you. He said it in Jeremiah:

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
29:13 ESV

If you truly have a desire to simply spend time with him or have an encounter, make the first step. I promise you that he will allow you to find him.

180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 35

I literally woke up saying, “…in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.”

While sleeping, I dreamt that I was at a church. The moderator, being the National Women’s Ministry Director, called me to the podium and said that persons will be praying individually back to back. I started to pray.

In my prayer, I started by thanking God for waking us. I explained that it is a privilege to wake up and be able to move, hear, speak, and see. It is by faith that we go to sleep, because many evil can happen to us. We have to trust God to protect us as we sleep. The enemy does not sleep and will try to attack us while we sleep, but God also never sleeps. I then rebuked all the evil spirits and every demonic attacks launched against us.

Deciding to end the prayer, as I sensed the next individual come up to begin praying, I started to say “…in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.” And as I said I opened my mouth, I woke up saying those exact words.

I must say that I felt protected. A prayer which felt so real that it ended with me literally saying the words, “…in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.”, as I woke up. This prayer was no dream. Whatever was happening as I slept, God was protecting me from it.

180 Days of Boasting About God – Day 2

Today was not a particularly good day, in my estimation. And normally, when I’m having bad days, I do not want to pray or read my bible or anything religious. But this 180 Days is not about me. It’s about a faithful God who loves me dearly.

It’s an understatement to say that God is good. But really, it’s the simplest way to express his goodness. I’m talking about a God who never gives up on you, no matter what you do. I know this as a fact.

I’m a young lady, trying to live a christian life. I have failed God more than I’d like to admit. I’ve walked away from his grace to do my version of the ‘riotous’ living, just like the prodigal son. But God still called me BACK to a relationship with him.

This is moral of my boasting today. No matter what the sin, God gives grace. No matter how great the sin, God gives greater grace. No matter how frequent the fall, his grace is more frequent. God forgave of countless sins: fornication, lying, stealing, hatred, unforgiveness, conceit, bitterness, maliciousness, and more. Yet with lips that have just told a lie, he hears my cry of repentance. Yet, with a body that has just risen from the bed of sexual immorality, he allows me access to the Throne of Grace so that I can seek and received mercy and grace.

Whatever you’ve done or are doing, God still loves you and desires to have a true relationship with you. His grace is sufficient and his mercy is new each day.

This God, my God, is good.

Conversations with Daddy (CWD) – Day 1 of 7

How do you hear from God? That’s the question I’ll answer for you.

Many different ways. One such way is listening. It’s a technique where I pray and then wait for his response. It’s not listening with the ears but with the mind/heart. By faith, I command every negative and evil spirit to be quiet and rebuke them from operating and then I quiet my thoughts a little and open my mind to hearing from God. Then I write whatever I hear, in faith, that it is his voice. Here is what I heard on Day 1.

I was reading the Bible (Numbers 9: 15-23 posted at the end of the blog) about how God led the Israelites through the wilderness day and night. By day, he led in the form of a cloud and by night, he was a pillar of fire. When the cloud remained over the tent of the tabernacle, the people stayed in that place.

My prayer: Daddy, that is how I want you to lead me. I want daily instructions. I want to move only when you move. And if you don’t move, I want to stay there and wait for you.

I believe Daddy had this to say to me: My child, that is why I led you to that verse. I will instruct you daily. Don’t rush ahead of my instructions, don’t assume you know where I’m going. Watch me first and then you move. I want to instruction you in the way you should go and I will counsel you with my eye. I will watch over you.

On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony. And at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning. So it was always: the cloud covered it by day and the appearance of fire by night. And whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out, and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel camped. At the command of the Lord the people of Israel set out, and at the command of the Lord they camped. As long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. Even when the cloud continued over the tabernacle many days, the people of Israel kept the charge of the Lord and did not set out. Sometimes the cloud was a few days over the tabernacle, and according to the command of the Lord they remained in camp; then according to the command of the Lord they set out. And sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning. And when the cloud lifted in the morning, they set out, or if it continued for a day and a night, when the cloud lifted they set out. Whether it was two days, or a month, or a longer time, that the cloud continued over the tabernacle, abiding there, the people of Israel remained in camp and did not set out, but when it lifted they set out. At the command of the Lord they camped, and at the command of the Lord they set out. They kept the charge of the Lord , at the command of the Lord by Moses.
Numbers 9:15‭-‬23 ESV
