Introduction I heard my elders say, “God’s an on-time God.” I did not understand what they meant until many years laters. It was not until my personal experiences with God’s timing that I could make this same definitive declaration. And now that we are still in a global crisis that began with a pandemic caused by coronavirus, it is an opportune time to be encouraged by revisiting biblical accounts of God’s timing. Using biblical examples, we have accounts of God’s... Read more

I have learned that focusing more on our losses in the past will cause us to lose sight of spiritual gains that are purposed to replace those losses in the future.   Gains and losses are part of life. I believe that when practicing Christians lose, God has a plan and way of restoring or replacing what we lost with something better and more valuable. Usually, it requires an attitude change on our part before we can even attempt to... Read more

Facing opposition should be expected in various leadership roles and responsibilities. Everyone will not agree with executive decisions, policies, and procedures. However, when Christian leaders face opposition, especially within their organizations, a moral code of conduct should matter. What happens when it doesn’t matter? How should Christian leaders respond when there is an attack against kingdom projects and programs ordained by God? We can learn how to deal with opposition from Nehemiah.

Being reminded that God keeps His promises is good news to me! Seeing a colorful bow across the sky after rain renews my hope in God’s sovereign rule. The Documentation And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud... Read more

  A relationship can flourish with consistent communication. No exchange of ideas, plans, goals, or honest discussion will lead to a relationship’s dissolution. Everyone involved may feel like there’s no point in continuing to work on the relationship. They give up hope of a resolution. Unfortunately, from the spiritual perspective, this should not be the final outcome for Christians. Although the need for constant communication is the same, there is a key difference—praying to an invisible yet relational God. Prayer... Read more
