Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Monday, February 15, 2016 In : Christian Devotions 

man in the wildernessWilderness experience is not palatable. Many at times you go through unpleasant situations and endure a lot of discomfort, trials and temptations. You pray and it seems as if prayers are not answered. Then you begin to ask series of questions – why am I in this situation? Why is God not doing this or that? Because you couldn’t find the right answers, you become frustrated both physically, spiritually and emotionally. As a believer, if you are in this kind of situation for too long,...

Let there be light

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Saturday, January 2, 2016 In : Christian Devotions

The future will be gloomy! And death will be commonplace.  Believe me or not, such is the situation with everyone who does not hav...

A Lady trying to remember God during quiet timeEach time I read Ecclesiastes 12:1, I say to myself ‘Lord how do you actually want me to remember you?’.

Today I share with you t...

Beware of Envy

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Saturday, June 7, 2014 In : Christian Devotions 


Daniel enviedToday, I’m going to write briefly on envy. I was reading the story of Daniel (Daniel 6:1-28) when I discovered a few things that I felt I should share with you today. Having finished reading the story in Daniel chapter 6 and saw what happened to Daniel’s accusers, I realised that it all started with envy.

Many of us...
