God Can Speak Anywhere and Anytime

Hello Readers & Followers,

How are you? How really are you doing? I hope you are well. Thank God for preserving our lives to see a new week. 

Recently, my husband and I were discussing the uniqueness of our God Almighty, and how we are still learning and knowing about Him every day. We also spoke about how God can speak with us anywhere and at any time, and we reminded each other of the importance of not limiting where we think God should speak to us and the timing that He should speak to us. God does not sleep, so He can speak at any time. The Psalmist says in Psalm 122:4 that "Indeed, He who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps."

I have written a number of books and in each of the books, God told me the title including the content of the books and He said He had prepared people that would be blessed by the books. My books are available on Amazon. You can search for my name (Funke Ogunoiki) on Amazon to purchase any of my books. 

Also, there had been times that a Bible verse keeps coming back to me over and over again through my personal Bible study time or in church or through an online sermon that I listened to or through an article that I read or through something that someone had shared. God always finds a way to speak to us and to get our attention.

God can speak to you anywhere about anything and at any time. I remember a time when I was looking for my ring and how God directed me to where my ring was. I also remember a time God told me that the kingdom of darkness was angry with a message that I taught and how the devil was going to use a fellow Christian to come and attack me. By the time the person was used by the devil to say something, I was alert and I prayed for the person. 



With some of my books, God spoke to me about the content while I was looking after my children, feeding them, some, while I was in the kitchen cooking, and some while I was sleeping. My husband recently told me that there was a time that he was in the shower and God spoke to him about a message that we needed to write to produce one of our evangelism tracts. Isn't it amazing to know that God can speak to us anywhere, about anything, and at any time?

I'd like to encourage you to be ready to 'catch' from God as He can speak anywhere and at any time to you. Spend time in His Word so that you can be sure it is God that is speaking to you as God does not contradict Himself. 

Prayer: 

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for reminding me that You can speak to me anywhere and at any time no matter where I am,

When you are speaking, Lord Jesus, help me to recognise your voice,

When you have spoken, help me to follow your Word

In Jesus' name,

Amen. 

Action

When God speaks to you, type His Word to you on your electronic device or in your journal or diary so that you can remember what God has said to you.

Back To School Prayers

Dear Readers & Followers,

I hope you are keeping well.

I know most of our children are back in school, right? I know you are likely to have prayed for them already or you may have been a part of Back to School Prayers.
I would like to encourage you to keep praying for your child/ren whilst they are in school. A daily prayer for your children will help your children draw close to God and to walk in God's alignment for their lives. Equally, you will draw close to God. However, I know that daily prayer is easy if you have something to pray to God about. Right? I'd love to recommend this prayer book. This prayer book is what I have been using to pray for my children and all the children at The Vine Church. I also pray other prayers as the Holy Spirit leads me.



I would like you to stretch yourself in the place of prayer. I would like you to keep praying for your children. I don't want you to think that because they are back in school, you are done with prayers. Pray until there's a shift.
Using a prayer book can help you to do away with distracting thoughts and it can help you to concentrate. It will also deepen your knowledge of God.

Your prayers matter to God.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

The God Who Gives Breath to all Creatures

Hello Readers & Followers,

It's a New Week! How are you doing? In England, today is a bank holiday. A bank holiday is an official public holiday when banks, schools and many businesses are closed for today. Most people take time to relax. If you are in England and you are reading this post today, how do you plan to spend your bank holiday? I will be going shopping shortly as our children need a number of things.

Today's article is an opportunity for us to reflect on God Almighty, the giver of our lives. I believe as Christians, we do not thank God enough or we sometimes assume that saying "Thank You Jesus" sounds like a simple prayer to God. Can I please encourage you to keep lifting up your voice to God by saying thank you to Jesus?  God is the one that gives you breath.

Isaiah 42:5 says "God, the Lord, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth and it is He who says."



Job 12:10 says "For the life of every living thing is in God's hand and the breath of every human being."

Numbers 16:22a says "But Moses and Aaron fell face down on the ground. “O God,” they pleaded, “you are the God who gives breath to all creatures."

Acts 17:25b says "God Himself gives life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need."

How wonderful that God Himself gives us life and breath, and He gives breath to everything. Glory be to God Almighty!

A Life Built on The Word of God

Hello Readers & Followers,

It's a new week! Happy New Week! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I remembered a sermon that my husband (Pastor Adebola) preached where he made reference to the importance of staying connected to the Word of God. I love how he explained that when a flower is connected to its root, the flower will blossom. However, if the flower is no longer connected to its root, steadily and gradually, the flower will wither. I was challenged by the sermon. 

As a reader of my faith blog, I would like to challenge you to build your life on the Word of God. Jesus said in Matthew 7:24 that anyone who LISTENS to His WORDS and PUTS THEM INTO PRACTICE is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.


1) A life built on Scripture shapes your character to become more like Christ.


2) A life built on Scripture helps you to be a person of integrity.
3) A life built on Scripture helps you to forgive easily and not to be easily angered.
4) A life built on Scripture increases your wisdom and helps you to live a life that is the opposite of this world.
5) A life built on Scripture does not envy or become jealous of others.
6) A life built on Scripture does not focus on petty things.
7) A life built on Scripture is not ignorant of the strategies of the evil one.
8) A life built on Scripture grants you joy and peace, not as the world gives.
9) A life built on Scripture lasts for eternity.

Take a pause and reflect on who you are, and your everyday choices. Are you building your life on the Word of God? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you to build your life on the Word of God when it is convenient and not convenient.

Is Having A Good Reputation Important To You?

Hello Readers & Followers,

I hope you are well.  I have been reflecting on the Word of God in the Book of Proverbs 22:1 which says that "A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold."


The wisdom of God is advising us that if we must choose between having "a good name" (not our names literally but the reputation that is associated when our names are mentioned) or riches, we should choose a good name.

When your name is mentioned, what is the character that is associated with your name? Are you a person of integrity? 

Think about those within your network, either at church, at work, or in your friendship groups, you probably have opinions about who they are from the moment their names are mentioned. Some could cause you to smile, some could cause you to be scared, some could cause you to frown, and some could cause you to be irritable. However, let's flip it around when your name is mentioned by others, what do you think their thoughts are? Are you living a life worthy of a good reputation? Can the love of God and the wisdom of God be seen in your actions?

What reputation goes with your name among your family, your workplace, at church, and in your neighbourhood?

Seek God and not just His Promises

Dear Readers & Followers,

I hope you are well. I would like to encourage you to seek (a deep longing) to know God. When you spend time seeking the Lord, He reveals Himself to you, and you get to develop a relationship with God. 

This is what the Lord says in Jeremiah 29:12-13, God said "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."




We don't want a situation where we only call upon God to tap into His promises but we do not know Him. Do you know the God of the promises that you rely on?

God is not a vending machine that you go to ONLY when you want something. God loves you and longs to be in a relationship with you. Do you seek God in your prayer? Or do you ONLY come to God with a shopping list? Seek God as well as His promises and not just His promises only.

I'd like to ask you, how do you seek God every day?

How You Should Use Your Mouth As a Christian

Hello Readers & Followers,

How is your week going? I hope you are well.

I'd like to briefly teach on how we can use our mouths as Christians. What does the Word of God say about the use of our mouths?



Ephesians 4:29 says "Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them."

God is wanting you to say the right thing at the right time and help others by what you say. The Bible says that the words of a wise person's mouth are gracious (Ecclesiastes 10:12). Are your words gracious?

When you speak, don’t say anything bad but say the good things that people need—whatever will help them grow stronger. Then what you say will be a blessing to those who hear you.  

Proverbs 21:23 says "Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity."

  • Are you saying the things that will help others grow stronger?
  • When you are frustrated, what comes out of your mouth?
  • When you are happy, what comes out of your mouth?
  • When you say something behind someone, what comes out of your mouth?

I'd like to encourage you to avoid using your mouth when:
