Consecrations can sound weird. A few examples. God can tell you:
– Live a fasted life. Eat once a day – and twice on special occasions.
– Delete certain apps – or abstain from social media altogether.
– No secular movies or music.
– No attending Happy Hour with your colleagues.
– Certainly no alcohol. Etc…
So, you would like to marry a called man or woman – or you already married one.
You would like to have called children – or you already have them.
However, let me give you a little heads-up:
They. Don’t. Belong. To. You.
Their first love is not you.
Their highest loyalty is not to you.
Dunsin Oyekan shared how, growing up, his dad would take him on ministers’ retreats and vigils. He was the only boy, and his sisters would lightly mock him because he would have to fast with his dad the whole day till they got home at night after the meetings.
He was frustrated and didn’t understand why he couldn’t be like other kids – or at least like his sisters.
Our children are not too young to know God.
They are not too young to be filled with the Spirit.
They are not too young to speak in tongues.

Some years ago, I was being interviewed for a job, and the interviewer asked about my personality type…
Many years ago, I was watching a family reality show. This lady had been auditioning, but was yet to get any acting role.
One day, her agent called her that she had some major auditions coming up.
You don’t need more spiritual power. Or fire.
You need more tarrying capacity: The ability to stay in his presence until you are “endued with power” – and fire naturally falls.
You don’t need more money.
You need more earning and learning capacity. (Click on the image to read more.)
In my first year in the university, I got baptised in the Holy Spirit – and I fell in love with God. Obsessively. I didn’t want anything to come between us.
I loved music and used to be in the choir, and when it was time for special numbers, we would sometimes go out to sing – me included.
There was a certain girl in my group who would just watch. Reserved.
