The Morning…

“But I will sing of your strength,
    in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
    my refuge in times of trouble.

 You are my strength, I sing praise to you;
    you, God, are my fortress,
    my God on whom I can rely.”
[Psalm 59:16-17]


The beautiful thing about the  M O R N I N G  is that it signifies a new beginning.
It symbolises another chance, and most importantly, it indicates victory.

That victory lies in the fact that yesterday’s struggles did not consume you.
You didn’t give up, you made it to a new day, and God, in His mercy, has kept you for a greater good to come.

Let’s pray with that this Wednesday morning…
Some of us have had a great week so far, and we’re so happy for the positives to continue.
Others may have had what we would deem as a terrible start to the week, and we can’t wait until it’s over.
But let’s remember that our making it to today, is by the grace of God and so we ought to express that gratitude, as well as ask Him to reveal His plan and purpose for this week, to us.

P R A Y E R:

We thank You for the grace You placed upon us to win yesterday’s battles, and triumph into today!
We ask that from today onwards, we will always realise and be grateful for the huge blessing that lies in seeing another morning.

You know what each of our weeks have looked like thus far, and we ask that You will allow Your perfect will to manifest in each of our lives in Jesus’ name.
We ask that You reveal Your purpose for this week to us. Show us how we can cause Your name to be glorified, and show us how we can walk in Your light and love, being a blessing and inspiration onto others.

For those of us who feel defeated by what Monday and Tuesday threw at us, give us peace and a strong assurance that greater is coming, and help us to be reminded that things always do work out well (Romans 8:28).

Once again we thank You for the privilege to see this new day, we thank You for always being a Reliable and Dependable God, and we ask that You will equip us to go forth and fulfil Your will in the rest of this week, month, year and beyond,
In Jesus’ Name.
A M E N.


Friend, take joy in the new hope that lies in every new morning, and be positive enough to mold your day into what you want it to be!

Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing
God Bless you

Happy New Year; 2018!

Happy New Year!

What a blessing, privilege and great opportunity it is to be in this New Year 2018.

Before you read on, I want you to spend at least 30 seconds just appreciating and thanking God for selecting you and favouring you to see this New Year.

. . .

Now let’s get into it.

Welcome to 2018;
A year to




God has given me these words to share with you as the three keywords to run with this year.
So make it your motto, your theme, your slogan, whatever you want to call it!

The assurance I have for you is that the correct application of these words in whatever you do this year, will surely produce great results and success in all your endeavours.
Not only will these words affect the results, but also the journey you travail to get there will be purposeful, meaningful and filled with life-enhancing lessons.

Today we’ll touch the surface of what God is saying with each of these words, and over the next few posts, we’ll go into further detail for each one.


Check this out…
You’re driving a vehicle, riding a bicycle, or simply walking – it doesn’t matter what your mode of transport is, but the point here is that you are in motion.
Question: What happens if your eyes are fixed on a completely different direction to the the one you’re going in?
You’re driving/cycling/walking forward, but your eyes are looking to the left.
We all know that eventually what happens is a collision.

Getting your Focus right is crucial this year.
It doesn’t necessarily eliminate the potential hurdles or obstacles from coming your way, but it definitely eliminates your ability to get distracted by them.
Therefore without you even telling me what your goals are for this year, I’ll tell you that your first Focus should be Jesus Christ at all times.
Eyes on Him, a close walk with Him, and a sensitive heart to His directions, is already a good step in the way of a fruitful and fulfilling year.



Paying attention to this word and actively manifesting its meaning is what will set apart the fruits of this year, to that of all other years that have come before it.

For some of you, you’ve always been great at following rules, helping others out, and being the ‘back-up’ person, or assistant to greatness.
This year, with your humility intact, God’s agenda is to raise you as the HEAD.
It’s time you start making the decisions for yourself (with inspiration from the Holy Spirit), and being bold in owning who you are and what you possess.
Leadership this year will not only pertain to your business/education/career goals, but also in the relationships you keep.
This year, Leading, will involve you sticking to the convictions you have in Christ, and refusing to compromise them for any thing, or any one.



Naturally, with this as the third word, we attribute it to the end, the product, the result, and so on.
To Achieve, is to get ‘there’ wherever there is, or get ‘that’, whatever that is.
Emphasis on the Achievement this year, means that we will not settle for a 2018 glory to arrive in 2019 – the things meant for this year, will surely manifest in this year, in Jesus’ name.
In as much as Achievement is always seen to come last, after the hard work, and after the Focusing and Leading, God wants us to keep the word in the forefront of our minds, in order to push ourselves to reach the goals we have set.
And to reach them in a timely manner! No More Delay.

So anyway, that’s a brief introduction to our recipe for greatness this year, given to us by God Himself.

I pray 2018 brings forth great joy, blessings and peace for you and your family, and as I already eluded to above, I confidently prophesy into your life that this is the year for the manifestation of long awaited glories, in Jesus’ Mighty Name! Amen.

Please keep supporting Untainted Word, and share share share with everyone you know! Don’t keep it to yourself.

Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing
God Bless you.


The Battle of Change

We all want to be better in one way or another… Right?

Well one thing is for sure,
The change in yourself that you want to see, and that you know you need, begins with You and ends with You.

It begins with you because you have to make the decision to make the changes that you want to see.
It ends with you because you, again, have to make the decision to remain committed to maintaining the changes that you have made, in order for them to become a permanent part of your life.

So, it begins and ends with you… But then there’s this part in-between.

The people in your life, and their perception, acceptance and supportiveness towards the change.

So to first clear things up, I agree with you! We live to please God and not man, therefore the issue of whether people want to accept or believe in our change or not, shouldn’t really matter.
But the truth is that for some (if not all) of us, ‘the people’ will have a massive effect on the longevity of the change.

So let’s discuss that, because on this journey to a ‘better us’, we will encounter a variety of people… Here are 4 categories…

1 – People who will ridicule the fact that you even want to change in the first place;
‘You?! You’ll never change, you’ll always be…’
They’ll chuckle at the fact that you could dare to think that you would ever get out of whatever cycle you’re in.
They’ll write you off and deem your change as impossible, and that will be all that matters to them.
They’ll continue to invite you to old places, to do old things and some will simply mock/disrespect your decisions to avoid certain things.
They will have no regard for your change at all.

Friend, though painful in some instances, you will need to separate yourself from these people.
They have the potential to cause severe damage to your journey, especially during the early season when the change is fresh, therefore you have to be bold, and break the link, or distance yourself, in order to make the first set of moves forward – in the right direction.

2 – People who will despise your change and never get past the old you;
Most of the people described above will also fall into this category.
But others will actually start off here, because they won’t dispute the fact that you could desire a change, however, mentally they can never get past the you they used to know.
These people will actually begin to see the difference, but will take every opportunity to remind you of where you’re coming from.
They’ll sometimes speak ill of you to others who become impressed by your new nature, and will make references to who you used to be, as ‘the real you‘.

Now friend you mustn’t take their lie as your truth. Unfortunately they’ll fail to grasp the fact that the old you died with Christ, and by His grace and resurrection, you have every right to live anew and be a new creation. (Romans 6:5-7)
That – is your truth – you are entitled and allowed to be a new creation in Christ. And the new creation, shall be the real you forever (in Jesus’ name, Amen).

3 – People who will lose faith in you if you fall;
They didn’t knock the fact that you wanted to rise and be better, but they’re easily discouraged and will lose faith in your journey if at all you slip up or fall back.
Though they care enough to have believed in you at the start, they kind of slide into a watered down version of the second category of people.
Your ‘mistake’ plants an element of doubt in them and they struggle from then onwards to take your change seriously or give you another chance.
Now I’m not repeating myself by introducing these people – I want you to know that it is extremely important for you not to exhaust your energy trying to win them back; win their trust back, win their belief back.

The bible says ‘by their fruits, you shall know them’ – Matthew 7:16-20.
What does this mean for you in this context?
It means that your effort and hard work ought to go into making sure you get back on the road to the new you, not into tirelessly trying to prove yourself.
It means that you should focus on tapping into the grace of God which will enable you to walk right, and walk consistently in your desired new path.
It means that you trust that gradually, they’ll see the fruits of someone who truly wants to change, improve, and be better. And so some of them after seeing the fruits of your effort, will become part of your support system, and will later fully believe in you.

Notice that you aren’t initially disregarding their feelings, and saying ‘whatever man’, but you simply realise that their doubt, and continuous reference back to the fact that ‘you fell backwards that time‘, could become a hinderance to your confidence and belief, in yourself and in the the fact that this change is truly possible at all.

4 – People who will encourage you, and want to see the change as much as (or even more sometimes) than you do;
These people will support you.
They want to see you win in, and with your change.
They’ll understand the ‘why‘ of your decision to improve yourself, and they’ll remind you of this even when you want to stop caring about it all.
They’ll already see a greater potential for you with the change, and so their minds are ready to correctly perceive and accept you through every stage of the process.
The next line may be obvious but it’s the simple truth –
You’ve got to surround yourself with these people… Keep them close.
They will serve as mentors, advisors, cheerer-uppers, picker-uppers and so many more things that will add salt, light and favour to your journey by the grace of God. These are the people sent by God to enable the perfect manifestation of your change.
These are the people God sends to ensure that you TRIUMPH over the Battle of Change.

So before we go, let us note a few more key things…

Good Change is Amazing; we can gather from Romans 6:1-4 that it is important for us, and pleasing to God, for us to put things right when we see that they aren’t, and therefore ‘walk in newness of life‘!
So I want you to definitely Embrace your Change.
Without a doubt, the people around us do play a massive part in the outcome of our change, but we must Always stay Determined to do what we set out to do!

Here’s my prayer for you;

I pray that God will open the eyes of your understanding, to see the things in your life that need to turn to Christ.
I pray that the courage required to take the first step to change, God will grant onto you.
I pray that every person that will lead to you being discouraged, and every attitude that will be detrimental to your journey, God will give you the discerning spirit to notice them and therefore walk away from them. Where applicable, He Himself will remove them!
I pray that God will bless your path with the people who will motivate, encourage, bless, uplift and assist you in your change.
I pray that once transformed, you will not become judgmental towards those struggling in areas similar to your past, but rather your journey will then become a testimony and a strength which you use to bring more people to a new life in Christ, by the Grace of God.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen

As God is for you, no one can succeed in being against you! (Romans 8:31)
So Believe in your Change, and Keep Going!

Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing,
God Bless you.

Welcome and Happy New Year – 2017


Heyyyyy… I gladly welcome you to Untainted Word.
It has definitely been a long time coming and I am so pleased that it is finally here and ready to be shared with you all.

For those who do not know, this is a step I have been meaning to take for many years, in terms of expanding how I share the inspirational, faith-based messages that I have been sending by text to my contacts for about 8/9 years now.

I have been encouraged by many people over the years to start a blog or just get these messages online somehow, and I finally have. (Thank you so much to everyone who planted those seeds, you can finally see them germinating).

I ask that you bear with me as everything is starting up, and I ask for your prayers; that this platform will serve its purpose in drawing people closer to God and leading souls to Christ.

It will definitely be expanding, by God’s grace, and in fact there are some interesting things to come in due time, but for now you can anticipate: Sunday’s Shaper; to conclude your week with a word that will enlighten, empower and enrich your mind with the right thoughts; enabling you to constructively reflect on the past week and equipping you with scripture to apply in the week ahead.
You can also look forward to Wednesday’s Wake-Up Call; a mid-week pick-me-up, to re-encourage, re-inspire and remind you of your ability to be excellent for the rest of the week.
The purpose of these messages is to bring attention to God’s truths – both His promises for us and His expectations of us as His children.

Hopefully, between here, and the Home and About pages, you will have a good enough idea of what Untainted Word is all about.
If there is anything else you would like to know, or in fact if you have general questions about the content you read in posts, or topic suggestions and so on, please head over to the Contact page, fill in the form and get in touch!

Anyway, enough of all that – please enjoy as you read the rest of the first post below – (a late, but valuable New Year’s message).

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year!!
Please pardon my lateness, I know we are 16 days in, but hey, the year is still pretty fresh, right?

2016 was many things for each of us.
It was filled with highs and lows, positives and negatives, fulfillments and disappointments.
For some it was their best year yet, for others it was the opposite, but one thing we can all say about 2016, regardless of our individual experience of it, is, it has gone.

Whether 2016 brought us joy or sorrow, it is now officially in the past.
And actually God says;

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.”
[Isaiah 43:18]

Therefore, whilst it is wise to remember and improve from the lessons you learnt last year, it is very important for you to understand that there is absolutely nothing you can do to change anything that happened in it. That means friend, let it go and look forward to the new things.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
[Isaiah 43:19]

How apt is this promise of God for a new beginning?

One thing we should always remember about God’s word is that it doesn’t return to Him unfulfilled – [Isaiah 55:11], in other words, God sticks to His word and does what He says.
That therefore places the ball in our court; God gives us His word, but it is our choice to receive, believe and use it.

So the question now is, how many of us will accept this promise of God from Isaiah 43:18-19, and be determined and confident enough to actively pursue and achieve our goals in 2017?
How many of us will truly believe that God will make a way, and do a new thing for us this year?
If He tells you to let go of the old, in order to make room for the new, will you trust Him enough to obey?

Along with our New Year’s resolutions, it is worth ensuring that we also endeavour to walk closely with God, be led by Him, and be sensitive to the direction of the Holy Spirit.
I pray that we will hold on firmly to the word of God, and as we do, may 2017 be our most glorious and successful year yet, in Jesus’ Name.

Happy New Year friends
Make this year whatever you want it to be!

Keep the Faith, Don’t Stop Believing
God bless you
