Stay On the Wall

My blog is called Broken Walls | Burned Gates for this reason. God keeps reminding me to stay on the wall through and through. We cannot afford to put off the urgency to spread the message of the Kingdom.

The book of Nehemiah has always encouraged me. I went over it again last night and God keeps revealing to me the reason behind the story.

The first thing that got my attention this time was the fact that Nehemiah asked only two things about Jerusalem;

Hanani, one of my brothers, came to visit me with some other men who had just arrived from Judah. I asked them about the Jews who had returned there from captivity and about how things were going in Jerusalem. (Nehemiah 1:2)

Nehemiah’s questions were;

1) How are the people?

2) How is the place/ city?

He was greatly concerned about the people and the status of the city. How many of us actually assess the condition of our city?


( A picture of the youth praying over the city this past Saturday)

I recently came across a page on Facebook called Humans of Gaborone, I like going through it to read the stories of the people. The page does not exactly contain the longing of the city for Jesus but it paints a close enough picture of it. The streets of Gaborone are longing for Jesus.

We need to be grieved by the ruins of our city.

They said to me, “Things are not going well for those who returned to the province of Judah. They are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem has been torn down, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.”(Nehemiah 1:3)

The wall

A wall symbolizes strength and protection. In the past the wall of a city was basically it’s defense. So when Nehemiah heard that the walls were broken, he knew this was a call to re-build and re-establish. He responded out of conviction.

We do not respond to people’s need, God does. All we do is dive in the move of God. We recognize what He is doing and carry out what He tells us to do.

God is more committed to what we do than we are.

The bible says for days Nehemiah sat mourning, fasting and praying. People don’t mourn unless they are grieved. Nehemiah was grieved by the ruins of his city.  God give us a heart for the lost. May your passion become our passion.

Opposition, discouragement, criticism

In Chapter 4 , as Nehemiah and the people were re-building the walls of the city the enemy started opposing them.

We will face opposition, some people will criticize what we do and we will get discouraged but we cannot stop building. We do not step off the wall for anything.

Sanballat was very angry when he learned that we were rebuilding the wall. He flew into a rage and mocked the Jews, saying in front of his friends and the Samarian army officers, “What does this bunch of poor, feeble Jews think they’re doing? Do they think they can build the wall in a single day by just offering a few sacrifices? Do they actually think they can make something of stones from a rubbish heap–and charred ones at that?” (Nehemiah 4:1-2)

A lot us keep stopping on the way and God wants us to press on. We easy get distracted and we put down our weapons, step off the place God has put us.

We must learn to put our agendas aside.

Some we get easily entangled with civilian pursuits.

But God is saying do not stop building. Stop stepping off the wall, stay focused on the mission.

Jesus is transforming our streets, city and nation.

Recently I went around taking pictures of the city, It got dark when I was still capturing so I changed the settings of the camera to flash light. Immediately, God showed me a picture of  this great light shuttering through every corner, street, beyond my eyes and feet, into places only He can reach.

That was a prophetic picture that God gave me for Gaborone. That He will reach even beyond our feet., in places beyond our reach. He will give us faith for the corners beyond just our eyes.

Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress. (1 Timothy 4:15). We dive into what God is doing where he has placed us. If we go out, we go out. But we will not put a hand to the plow and looks back anymore.

Jesus is the longing of the Nations. He is enough for Gaborone.

So what is FNL | Friday Night Life Purpose


(FNL session 2 is happening on the 25th September)

Church For All Nations(CFAN) has created an environment called Friday Night Life (FNL). This is an “open to public” event for the youth(Under 30’s) in and around Gaborone that happens every last Friday of the month. The church felt the need to break through the walls and reach out to youth with the gospel. We use worship as an evangelism tool, as we declare the truth about Jesus, we are trusting many will come to a genuine lasting repentance.

FNL Prophetic Word

( A prophetic word we received after our launch)
FNL is seeking to impact our under 30’s youth in the city. It is more than an event; we are building a radical faith community. We are sharing the hope, salvation, joy, love and forgiveness we found in Jesus Christ. We see the need for the generation of Gaborone to be awakened to their purpose in Jesus and empowered to step out into their calling. In the process becoming an authentic and responsible young people with the ability to boldly lead and influence their spheres of influence positively.

FNL slogan, “The Change room” resound the words of Heaven, which calls us “To come as we are” and see Jesus transforms us to his likeness. Therefore there is no prequalification to come, but to bring an open heart to the change room of which Jesus is the master physician. The young people not only Worship through live music, but connect through discussions and eating together.

God cannot and will not be pressured| Stop trying to fit Him into your little wrist watch


We often try to fit God in our time and little wrist watches in attempt to control Him.  We schedule events of our lives for Him, we tell Him when to act. God cannot and will not be pressured. We think we can make God wait, but for him everything that will happen has already happened.

I usually fall into this trap of making scheduled plan for God. I want things when I want them. My time is too perfect to fit into His eternal glorious plan for my life.  Basically, I set my will against His not realizing that dethrones him in my life.

God’s dominion ends where ours begins. Dethrone yourself.

Time does not affect God.IT WILL NOT PRESSURE HIM, no matter how manipulating we get.

(Hebrews 13:8) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Therefore in all our time, He remains timeless. Jesus has already lived all our tomorrows as He has lived all our yesterday.

God inhabits eternity!

Time only marks the beginning of created existence, and because God never began to exist, it has no application to Him. Jesus lives in everlasting now. He has no past and no future. When time appears in the scriptures it reflects to our time; NOT His. We cannot clock Him. So crush your wrist watches already.

(Revelations 22:13) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

(Isaiah 41:4) Who has done such mighty deeds, summoning each new generation from the beginning of time? It is I, the LORD, the First and the Last. I alone am he.”

(Psalm 90:1) A prayer of Moses, the man of God. Lord, through all the generations you have been our home. Therefore He is and will continue to be one safe home for the time-driven generation.

God appears a the beginning and end of time simultaneously. To him later is the same as earlier.

We are made for eternity as much as we are made for time. Do not only treasure your now but set your mind on the things of forever. We cannot afford to become fools of this passing world, concentrating ourselves only on the now time

My prayer is Jesus help me apply my heart to wisdom. May the knowledge of your eternity not be wasted in me.

I am his mirror opposite |Totally fit for purpose


I was created to be his “help meet”. that is God’s original plan.

There is a wrestle going around, woman have a challenge accepting their position and the God design purpose for them in a marriage. A woman does not understand her role and mission. We need to start finding fulfillment in God’s design and purpose.

Lately I have being pondering on this scripture;

Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”(Genesis 2:18)


Other versions say; an help meet, a helper suitable for him, his complement, companion.

I looked up the meaning of the  word “help”, in Hebrew is ezer. Which means “TO RESCUE, TO SAVE . So a woman was not intended to be just his helper or his companion, rather she was intended to be his savior, his deliverer. What a privilege.

God is saying I will make for him, one to help him in all the affairs of life, to provide things useful and comfortable for him, dress his food, and take care of the affairs of the family.


A man should not wear anything on his head when worshiping, for man is made in God’s image and reflects God’s glory. And woman reflects man’s glory. (1 Corinthians 11:7)

Basically, I as woman, supplement to a man’s incompleteness of his lonely being.

I am “like himself”,  in nature, temper, and disposition, in form and shape,

I am pleasing to his sight.

Eve was not designed to be exactly like Adam. She was designed to be his mirror opposite, possessing the other half of the qualities, responsibilities, and attributes which he lacked. It’s a perfect fit design.

There is still a lot I ought to learn here. I pray that God keeps revealing more and that my heart will walk in obedience to Him.  And I will use this time to learn from other woman also.

These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God. ( Titus 2:3-4)

A Pledge Of Future Glory

Slaves do not get an inheritance, Sons do.

We have found ourselves a New hope in Jesus. Now, we have eternity to look forward to. An inheritance kept for us in heaven.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:3)

Paul writes to the believers, called in Christ, the elect, partners with Christ and sons  of God. He opens his letter with giving thanks to God for the gift of salvation.

Then he looks forward, into the future. A pledge of future glory ( 1 Peter 1:3-9)

Are you living your life through eyes of eternity?

Inheritance calls for ownership. We ought to leave with vision of the church, kingdom, eternity.

Do you leave with a sense of calling? We are His workmanship. ( Ephesians 2:10)

Jesus does not want you to do anything FOR Him. He wants to do everything WITH you.

We are the church,The called out ones. The church is the construction site of God. Any other activity on earth is just a scaffolding . It’s all fading away. Let not your possessions own you.

Get busy with the things that last forever.

How are you treating the bride of Christ. ( Ephesians 1:19) We leave for the benefit of the body of Christ. Priests serve and tend to the bride.


“Arrogantly Humble” | It matters very little what you think of me.


As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point. (1 Corinthians 4:3)

I thought to myself, that is the most arrogant yet humble and profound verse ever!!

Here is what he is basically; It matters very little to me what you think of me( like it almost doesn’t count), I don’t even rank myself.

Paul knew that his only judge is God.

He refused to submit to mere human judgement.

The church in Corinth had falling into an unhealthy trap of ranking Paul, Peter and Apollos against each other. Yet, these men were themselves knit in closest friendship, and felt themselves to be servants in common of one Master, and fellow-workers in one task. They knew that they completed each other.

When you read further and get to understand Paul’s heart on this verse, you will realize that Paul is not arrogantly proclaiming himself superior to the opinion of the Corinthians, but is pointing out the necessary inadequacy of all human judgments.

It is a great comfort that men are not to be our final judges. The word of God is the best rule by which to judge.

Our master makes the judgement of our work. Being self-analytic can also be dangerous .

God himself will take the responsibility for pointing out the things need to be dealt with in our lives.

We can now stop been “self-employed judges”

Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. (Romans 14:4)


We Found Our Strength In A SONG!


We found our strength in a song.

Above prayer my household finds strength in a song. A song has become a “triumphant roar” that indeed the Lord is on our side through every situation. It’s a declaration. Sometimes a song doesn’t change our situation but it ridiculously changes everything inside us.

When we sing , Joy comes.

When we sing, We see Him.

When we sing, we feel Him singing over us.

Sometimes He laughs over our storms. Then it all becomes a joke.

(Psalm 118:14-15)The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the LORD has done glorious things!


Jesus is our song, literally :)

I pray that our song will find it’s consistency though. That in every season my family will have a song to sing, something to hum in the mornings.

Remain in your song. Keep singing.

Don’t forget your song.

This morning mom burst into a song after a very long time. That just blessed my heart. I had missed her song and I am sure my Father in heaven missed it most. It was almost like she was whispering something to Jesus.

Find your song this morning. Tune into Him.

Love Lala :)
