Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 11 W 5 D 3.


Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you made it.

We continue with our study through the book of Daniel. We are presently reading verse 19 of chapter 3, and the thought we are sharing on is based on the first sentence in the verse. It reads, “Then Nebuchadnezzar was full of fury, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego."

Why was he mad? Why do bad things happen to good people? The bible has a simply answer for us. It is contained in 1 Peter 5:8. It says, "it is because we have an enemy." It is not because we necessarily did anything wrong. It is because we are in a warfare. We are not on a neutral plane. We are in warfare.

How more can I get this truth nailed in?

Let's pray.

Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 11 W 5 D 2.


Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you could make it.

This is a special season of life for me. God is teaching me faith in very practical ways. I have failed two passed big examinations which each led to times of depression is past seasons of life. Now I am faced with life again.

Failure means another season of depression, but I made myself a promise never to walk that land anymore. Two times is all a person needs to visit such land. So, I am in that season of life that I am very conscious of witchcraft arrows.

Sorry, I am delivered. It does not work on this one, so you might as well find yourself better things to do with your time. I don't attend pity parties either. I love you still, but sorry, I am not available for pity party. Get yourself off your butt and get back to the grind.

Let's pray.

 ​“So Daniel said to the steward whom the chief of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then let our appearance be examined before you, and the appearance of the young men who eat the portion of the king’s delicacies; and as you see fit, so deal with your servants.”” ― Daniel 1:11-13, NKJV. 


TFO Keynote #43: Faith comes from knowing where your strength comes from; knowing where/what/who your source is, and comparing your challenge to Him. (Matthew 6:30; Psalm 23; Isaiah 42:13; 2 Chronicles 20:15) 

But, there is a God in Heaven... (Daniel 2:28a)

We are the sheep of His pasture. (Psalm 100:3; 97:5)

God is with us like a mighty man. (Isaiah 42:13; 2 Chronicles 20:15; Isaiah 40:22)

"Faith is the confidence, the assurance, the enforcing truth, the knowing."  Robert Collier.


TFO Keynote #44: Your faith or the lack thereof is influenced by the people you surround yourself with. Evil communication corrupts good manners. (1 Corinthians 15:33)

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with“. - Jim Rohn. Your association is affecting your personality. Wisdom is choosing who, when, where, and how you associate. You are the responsible party for the vessel called YOU.

"When you walk with someone, something unspoken happens. Either you match their pace or they match yours."  Sidney Poitier. 

We are spirits. We are energy, and our energy and spirit is in continual interaction with our environment. One is seeking to gain mastery over the other with a resultant effect governed by the law of averages, taking quantity and intensity into consideration. We are all in a state of continual influence - influencing and being influenced. We are the result of the influences of yesterday and will be the result tomorrow of the ongoing influences of today.


TFO Keynote #45: Man is God's intent for creation. Every other thing on earth was created to serve man in fulfilling God's original intent of His glory shining forth through man, His prototype.

God created man in His image and according to His likeness so that man would receive God as life and express God in all His attributes. (Genesis 1:26-28; 2:8)

The reason God created man in His image inwardly and with His likeness outwardly was not for man to do anything for God or to “be God’s friend”, but so that man and God would be organically one and God would be expressed through man on earth.

Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 11 W 4 D 5.


You are welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you came.

Thanks be to God for the end of another week. Isn't it neat the way time seem to keep on going on? Is there wisdom in this for us to imbibe? It doesn't matter how yesterday was, today is here. It does not matter how the week was, the end is here, and another will soon start.

Nothing last forever, on this side of eternity. Everything fades in glory. What was young yesterday, is old today, irrespective of the number of plastic surgeries. Original is still better than fake and wannabe.

Do what you need to do today before it is done, and tomorrow is here. Don't labor tomorrow with the troubles of today. Just as much as you do not want to labor today with the troubles of yesterday.

Enjoy your weekend.

Let's pray.

The Saint.

Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 11 W 4 D 4.


Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you came.

Apologies we were unable to come live yesterday. I had everything sorted out, but the internet fell through the crack. Just another reminder of the limitation of our humanity. That is all we can do at each point in time - give our best.

The outcome is always God's to decide. He is the God of the harvest. What we need to ensure is that we give our best at each point in time and at all occasions. That is all life can judge us on.

Let's pray.

Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 11 W 4 D 2.


Welcome to the Upper Room. So glad you made it.

Do you know most people suppose they have faith, but all they have is mere presumption. They suppose God will answer them, based on their own notion and feelings around the idea of god. Their prayer is to an unknown god. 

Their belief is in a god of their own emotions, not the God of the bible. Is that not what the Israelite made unto themselves after rejecting God. They asked of Aaron to make them a god. Can you beat that?

They rejected the true God, then went on to make a god unto themselves. That is no different from the account in Numbers 14. They disobeyed and disbelieved God, then sudden turned around to supposed do that which God has moved away from.

Do you know people like this? Are you one of them?

Let's pray.

The Saint.
