This is what the Lord says:

Cursed is the one who trusts in man,

7“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

8They will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes;

its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought

and never fails to bear fruit.”Jeremiah 17:7-8

Action: Always remember that your future is secure in God, learn from the past and move on to greater heights.

journey easier & smoother.


Dearly beloved, you may have no control over situations, but you CAN control your attitude & response to them. Situations change when YOU CHANGE. It's all about your attitude. The things that happen to you are not half as important as your response to them

Jesus said the wind blows wheresoever it wishes (it is unstoppable), so is everyone born of the Spirit (John 3:8). Today, think pure thoughts of victory, purity, deliverance, vindication, healing, prosperity. Attitude of a conqueror moves you to your higher grounds. Welcome to the top! It is your year of light& glory!!!

true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,

whatever is admirable—if anything is

excellent or praiseworthy—think about

such things.


When all your efforts are failing, when all your human props let you down and God is all you must lean on, then, you realize, He is ALL YOU NEED TO HAVE ALL YOUR NEEDS MET. You in God and God in you, you will shock the naysayers! I see you WINNING!

arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for

which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and

sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold

of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and

straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the

goal to win the prize for which God has called me

heavenward in Christ Jesus.


Beloved, this year, get ready to embrace higher goals. Don't be stuck in your comfort zone. Set your eyes on heights you haven't been yet & trust that you are able to attain it. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE. IF you think you can, you must surely can. If you think you can’t, you may be right.

admirable—if anything is excellent or

praiseworthy—think about such things.

Beloved, Breakthroughs are more significant when achieved with little or no encouragement from others. Every MAJOR achiever had to conquer skepticism, criticism or outright hostility. Few examples are David, Joseph, Martin Luther, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Colonel Sanders, Martin Luther King jar, Steve Jobs. When human help failed, David encouraged himself in the lord. Lack of human help is not an excuse for mediocrity. Today, delight yourself in God & He will grant you supernatural ability to stun our world. I see you @ the top.

Action: Be joyful, knowing that the delays and obstacles are temporary and cannot stop your dreams from eventually coming to pass, if you trust God, keep your focus and work hard.


Dearly beloved, concerning your destiny, “Why are the nations so angry? The kings of the earth set themselves...the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD &against His Anointed...But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.

But thanks be to God, who always leads us

as captives in Christ's triumphal procession

and uses us to spread the aroma of the

knowledge of him everywhere.

Dearly beloved brothers, the general rule is: your wife won't make you any happier than you make her. Yes, there are exceptions to that rule, but you probably know it by now that women are multipliers! With natural capability to multiply whatever seed is sown into vital part of their anatomy e.g. Heart, mind, womb. From today, HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES like never before! To be happy, sow happiness to her. Single brothers, ask God for wisdom to understand what makes a woman tick!

For the ladies, please, please do not sell yourself short. Love your maker, your original husband with your whole life and He will give you a man after His heart to love you as you ought to be loved.

The fact that you don’t seem to have made much progress does not mean you are not making progress. Just as the earth revolves round the moon in twenty-four hours and in one year-round the sun, without any physical awareness of its movement, so your great destiny is moving towards the direction God wants it to, though you are not aware of it. If your heart is with God and you are doing all you can, your greater tomorrow is evolving.

Action: Choose to be at peace, knowing that your life is moving in the right directions despite what you see.

Trust in the LORD forever, for the

LORD, the LORD himself, is the

Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:4


Dearly beloved, the bad news is, excellence is hard. The good news is, if you are willing to pay the price, there is VERY little competition at the level of excellence.

Romans 8:34-37

Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;

we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.


Friends, sometimes, Jim Rohn said, "You have to risk going too far to discover just how far you can really go". That is so true! Get OUT of your comfort zone!

Action: Examine your life and get out of any rut you are stuck in. Dream new dreams.
