As I celebrate my 52nd birthday today, I cannot but remember the goodness of my creator in my life and His covenants with me over the past years.

Genesis 5 vs 24: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Psalm 50 vs 5: Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

1. The first covenant I remember God made with me is Covenant of international source of income.

In the year 1998, after a night vigil with a group of friends in the city of Ibadan, south west Nigeria, I voice told me in my dream: ‘You will feed on the wealth of nation’. I was in financial crises then, but over the years this prophecy has come to pass as most of my jobs are contracts are with international organisations and been privileged to be paid in hard currency.

Added to this is the faithfulness of a few members of my online ministry- Save the World that send me financial gifts locally and from overseas.

Isaiah 61 vs 6:
KJV: But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD; men shall call you the Ministers of our God. Ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

CEB: You will be called The Priests of the LORD; Ministers of Our God, they will say about you. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and fatten yourself on their riches.

2. The second covenant over my life is that of unceasing divine provision.
Leviticus 26:10: And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new

One of the unfortunate features of my early years in my professional career was lost of jobs, a rising and falling trademark which always affected my income. But God brought it to an end in 2001 after I lost another dream job. I heard the words: ‘Before your money finishes, I will always provide another’, as I prayed in lamentation over the lost job and seeking the face of God for a new job. By the grace of God, God has always been providing for me financially since, even when I am out of job, income will just come divinely. Most remarkably, according to the covenant my purse has never completely dried up, as my funds are going down, it will be topped up with income from unexpected quarters

3. The third covenant I am walking in is that of divine protection.

In 2006 about ten armed robbers came to my house and held the family to ransom for about an hour shooting sporadically into the air, threatening to kill and main. To the glory of God we were not harmed. The next day, the Holy spoke to me in a dream and told me about the previous day’s incident. I heard the words: ‘I delivered you because of my covenant of protection over you’. Since, I knew my household is walking in covenant of divine protection.

Also many years ago, ….few days after I bought a car, the Holy Spirit appeared to me in the dream, saying I will never have an accident while driving, that accidents may come near me, but I will also miss accidents nearly. By His grace in my years of driving, I have never heard an accident.

Moreover, many years ago when planes were crashing in the air in Nigeria, I became afraid of flying, but the Holy Spirit appeared to me in a dream, and I heard the words: ‘Your plane with never crash’.

In another vision, (when my fear of flying lingered) I saw the aeroplane I was flying really went down into the ocean, but miraculously, a huge rock… the rock of ages appeared in the deep sea and saw myself rescued as I held on to it. The Holy Spirit assured me again: ‘Even if your plane crashes to the sea, you shall be rescued’.

In a related development, I was shocked about two months ago, when I woman know with some divine powers in my hometown told me that I should stopped getting afraid of anything, because God opened her eyes as I walked up to greet her, and she saw four angels guarding me, saying further they are with me 24/7. She now asked me, should the person four angels are guarding 24/7 walk in fear?

Psalm 91:7-16
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.

4. The third covenant I know I am walking in is that of ‘You shall never be stranded’. The Holy Spirit revealed this covenant to me few years ago, I as almost got stranded in Helsinki Airport in Finland. I could not find my hand bag containing all travel documents, including international passport, credit cards, invitation letters to the conference, and currencies, as the planed stopped and all passengers were alighting. Another passenger had taken away my hand bag before I rushed to the overhead locker where it was kept.

The next 15 minutes was a period of momentarily madness as I frantically searched the plane, passengers alighting, and the airport looking for my hand bag. I was arrested by policemen at the airport for causing a slight commotion, but to the glory of God the person that took away my bag miraculously returned it shortly afterwards.

A day later, the Holy Spirit told me in a dream that: ’You shall never be stranded’. God revealed to me that He keeps and watches over the stranger in a strange land. Over the years, I have enjoyed the covenant of ‘I shall never be stranded’, as I have been in situations in which I was almost getting stranded but divine help always arise in Jesus name
Psalm 146 vs 9:
New American Standard Bible
The LORD protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow, But He thwarts the way of the wicked.

King James Bible
The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

5. The fifth and sixth covenants that I know I am walking are that of wisdom of God and long life.

Many years ago, about twenty or more, the Holy Spirit told me in a vision: ‘You shall grow very old and be very wise’. I have stood on these words, and believe and know I can’t possibly die untimely from any cause. Also by His grace, I find myself being able to solve problems either at family, business, of office levels, which I know is due to this divine impartation of wisdom
Job 42 vs 16: After this lived Job a hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.
Luke 2 vs 15: And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

6. The seventh covenant I aware that I am walking in.. is divine promotion. I have also received revelations of promotions, some of which have manifested, several of which I are yet to manifest. I always know my next job as I often receive revelations about it. Some of the jobs I recently hold, God told me about it about ten or twenty years ago. I believe God has a masterplan for my life, and I will walk in it as long as I walk with Him. By His grace, almost all the financial opportunities that I have come past 11 years, I don’t struggle for them. God arranges my next job for me by divine connection, and when I struggle to get a new job or contract I always fail to secure them. I have come to realise that that God wants to take glory for all my achievements, as I always fail to achieve much by my own strength, connection, or contacts.

Psalm 75:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

As I celebrate my birthday today, I pray to continue walking and growing in Gods power and love in Jesus name
