Pastor’s Trouble Series: Runaway girl in church | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

I left home a few minutes before 6pm yesterday for church because of Bible Study. Everything seemed perfectly normal when I got to church until after about 45 minutes into the service. My pastor called me to come and handle a situation. There was a young girl in church who …

Even your church needs a resolution | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Too many people think that everything is spiritual and they barely take responsibility for things that are physical. You will see a lot of church folks and pastors talking about prophetic declarations for the year but they will not talk about the plans, goals and resolutions for the year. This …

Christmas: A reminder of redemption | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

One of the major reasons we have to remember Christmas is the redemption that Jesus brought to us all. If not for the redemption of Jesus, we will all be hopeless and live in constant fear of the judgement that is waiting for us at the end of our lives. …

Follow what you are cut out for. | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

You cant go about pursuing other peoples dreams just as you have been doing just because you want to impress them. While you are trying to impress them you are struggling with your own life and peace. You wake up on daily basis trying hard to fit into what others …

Mixing the primary role of the church | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Today’s church really needs help and I don’t think many of its leaders see the need to get that help. The help should begin from redefining the roles of the church to the people and setting the priorities right to know which should come first. If the church, and in …

Imitation does not transfer anointing | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

When I was getting ready to write this I immediately remembered the young men who wanted to cast out demons in the name that Apostle Paul preaches. They were trying to do what he did even though they did not carry the anointing that he carried. All over the world …

Your Christianity versus others’ Christianity | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

One of the things I have come to see in so many people today is that they seem to be having a Christian life that is patterned after another person’s Christian life. They do the things that that other person does and follow that person’s leading. Unfortunately, when that person …

To last longer in your chosen endeavour | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Long standing relevance in any field is determined by a number of things that the relevant people must have put into consideration before setting out at all. You don’t just wake up and say this is what you feel like doing and the next minute you have already started it. …

Your responsibility in awakening the giant | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Your responsibility in awakening the giant within you is sequel to my last post titled ‘Awakening the giants within you.’ It will sound very nice to the ears for you to hear that you can become great but it may not be helpful when you are not told your responsibility. …

Awakening the giants within you | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

There was a commercial on television some years back in Lagos that said ‘there’s a drop of greatness in you.’ I totally agree. While I agree with what the commercial says, I do not agree that it is the product that puts the greatness in you or that it can …

Can I have several mentors? | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

For some people, it may not sound well to talk about having several mentors. A few others are in doubt as to whether they can have several mentors. ‘Why should I have several of them’ some people ask. I have established in some other articles that having a mentor can …

Proof of being with Jesus │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 (NKJV) I already shared a few times that I am deeply concerned about what we call Christianity today. …

The size of your challenges │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

There’s something interesting you really need to know about the size of your challenges. I think that by the time you find out what it is, your perception to challenges will change. Every human being will face challenges in life at different times and for different purposes. The challenges are …

Understanding determines your being outstanding │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

As a young boy I remember that we were thought to always ask for wisdom, knowledge and understanding. For some time I really didn’t know why the three had to go together because I felt they would work in the same way or that they even meant the same thing. …

Seeing with the mind of others │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

As individuals or as leaders, it is very possible that we have tried out all that we know in the things we are doing yet we are stuck somewhere. There are too many people who cannot go too far in life not for the lack of potentials but for the …

Your role in getting miracles out of troubles | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

It is necessary to quickly have a follow up piece having written on the possibility of miracles out of troubles. This will be the balance between the expectation of miracles and the results that we want. There are things we must do for those troubled times to come to an …

Be careful what you wish or ask for | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Sometimes we ask for things that seem very big and almost impossible. We also know that for those things to happen, a miracle might be required. In some cases, they seem far fetched but sooner than we expect, those seemingly impossible things happen and it’s as if we are dreaming! …

From the discouraged to the motivator | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

While many of us are busy wondering why we are the ones going through the very things we are experiencing, we may not understand that we are there because of other people. We go through very hard or discouraging times and it may be so difficult to share with others …

Deficit can be overturned | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

Everyday, there are things happening around us to constantly remind us of the fact that the deficits we are looking at in our lives can be overturned. It is easy for us to focus on how much we have lost or what we are still losing rather than focusing on …

Goshen is good but Canaan is the Promise │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

You will recall I started this series last Sunday with an article titled ‘How we got to Goshen.’ If you missed it you can read it up on www.foladaniel.wordpress.com. I simply explained how the Children of Israel started their physical journey to Goshen through the family of Jacob when there …

What to do before your time comes │© Fola Daniel Adelesi

Having reminded you that your time will also come, I think it is only fair to help you further by talking about the things you can do before your time comes. No one is doing you any good to simply assure you that your time will come when you are …
