EP45: Inexplicable Peace When Life Happens

Purpose Guy Podcast

EP51: What If You Succeed?
Whenever you feel like quitting, remember you always have at least one other option. Rather than focus on all that can go wrong, what if you shifted your attention, focus and energy into all the possibilities before you?
May 23, 2022
EP50: Who Are You Becoming?
You cannot ‘become’ what you already are. You become what you’re presently not. Judas didn’t begin as a traitor. He became. ‘Becoming‘ (in the negative sense) is a process that begins with the gradual compromise of your core moral values.
April 08, 2022
EP49: Stay Authentic To Your Story
So stop comparing your story with others; your destination isn’t the same with everyone else. In the end, you must stay true and authentic to who you are.
February 20, 2022
EP48: Surround Yourself With Vision Encouragers
Be intentional about who you surround yourself with. Find your Joshua. Find your Moses. Find your Aaron. Find your Hur. You need your vision encouragers.
February 09, 2022
EP47: How to Win BIG in 2022
In the final episode of 2021, I sign off with a few words on how to unlock your capacity and position yourself for success in 2022.

EP46: The Forgotten Guiding Principle on Giving
In this episode, I reflect on the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:1-4 about the forgotten guiding principle on giving.
December 27, 2021
EP45: Inexplicable Peace When Life Happens
There is a peace we cannot explain. It’s the peace that acknowledges the presence of our problems and still CHOOSE to rejoice. It is the peace whose anchor and hope is Christ, not man.
December 20, 2021
EP44: Show Up for the Good Fight
You cannot claim victory unless you’re present in the fight of your life — the fight to trust God for the present regardless of the raging winds, to live for a cause greater than life itself, to honour God with your life and to fulfil purpose.
November 18, 2021
EP43: Can We Stop Demonising Ambition?
Can ambition become sinful and a snare to you? Absolutely! But it doesn’t have to be. We need to stop demonising ambition in Christian circles and rather teach the power of life priorities.
November 02, 2021
EP42: A Case Against Spiritual Fatherism
God loves leadership, order, clear roles and responsibilities. But He has no second-tier sons and daughters. This episode is crucial.
October 18, 2021
EP41: Greatness Series - Never Without Personal Sacrifice
Beyond knowing and cultivating your purpose and embracing excellence as a lifestyle, you must be willing to do something else.. and this one thing may just make all the difference in the type of legacy you leave behind after you’re gone.
September 27, 2021
EP40: Greatness Series - It Always Begins With Knowing and Cultivating Your WHY
If all we did was live for what to eat and drink, we haven’t discovered our calling. That’s because there’s more to your life than that. Never mistake enablers for your WHY!
September 05, 2021
EP39: Faith Grows in Unexpected Places
We grow our faith when we step out into the ‘messiness’ of life, doing the ‘present’ while we trust and wait for God’s next move in our lives.
August 27, 2021
EP38: Greatness Series - Don't Settle for Mediocrity
When you are intentional, you must equally embrace excellence and do away with an average mentality and attitude to life. Never settle… never settle for mediocrity.
August 22, 2021
EP37: Live to Die Without Regrets
Life is short, eternity is forever, so I urge you live to die without regrets. Listen up and be blessed.
July 29, 2021
EP36: Grace Meets Works - Contending Against Two Extremes
Christians are not justified before God because of our good deeds — rather, our good deeds are evidence of our justification by grace through faith. Grace and faith come before works. But neither can stand without the other.
July 26, 2021
EP35: Our Identity and Radical Purpose
“As a Christian you cannot talk about your identity without talking about the action of God on you, the relationship of God with you, and the purpose of God for you.” John Piper
July 15, 2021
EP34: Remember Lot’s Wife
My first encounter with the story of Lot’s wife left a deep impression on me; a resolve to spiritual urgency in obedience to God. How about you?
July 08, 2021
EP33: What do you bring to the table?
The world doesn’t need more Christians with massive bibles but who aren’t committed to Christ’s mission to be the change agents God desires to use to shine His light into hearts and and bring eternal hope to many.
July 01, 2021
EP32: Dear Pastors Series - Forgiving One Another
When you either refuse to forgive the offences of others against you or won’t apologise for your own offences against others, we have a problem.
June 24, 2021
EP31: Dare to Believe Again
What do you do when you’re waiting for your BIG break and opportunity but you seem to be losing hope? If that’s you, listen up and be encouraged by my personal testimony in this episode.
June 13, 2021
EP30: No Ifs, No Buts... Make Your Life Count
Quit your fears; take God-centred risks. Live in possibilities. Don’t limit yourself. No ifs, no buts.
June 04, 2021
EP29: In The End, Nothing Else Matters
On a recent morning school run, I was reminded that nothing else REALLY matters in the end apart from GOD, as we listened to Nothing Else by Cody Carnes. Listen up and be blessed by this episode.
May 28, 2021
EP28: How a young graduate found MUCH MORE than work
Life is not about what we have, the wealth we accumulate or the knowledge we acquire. Who we are or becoming is more important than what we have.
May 24, 2021
EP27: Lessons from death and comfort to the grieving
Death is an uncomfortable topic for many. But there are tons of lessons we can learn from it so we can live well to die without regret when our time comes.
May 17, 2021
EP26: Risk and my love story that was never meant to be
Learn about my high school love story that was never meant to be and embrace the call to take God-centred risks as you fulfil purpose.
May 14, 2021
EP25: Dear Pastors Series - Loyalty
When you demand personal and/or denominational loyalty to build your ministry at the expense of Christ and the integrity of the gospel, we have a problem.
May 05, 2021
EP24: Brothers, Pray For Us
Spiritual leadership is delicate. The expectation on the leader is huge. That’s why Paul pleaded — Brothers, pray for us — 1 Thessalonians 5:25. How we ought to heed the counsel with more seriousness.
April 30, 2021
EP23: What is the Gospel?
We are surrounded by expressions of the Christian faith that is not consistent with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let’s go back to the basics. What is the gospel? Listen to find out.
April 25, 2021
EP22: Dear Pastors Series - Be Accountable
When you fail to stay accountable to your members and other leaders around you but see yourself as being above them, we have a problem.
April 21, 2021
EP21: What's In Your Hand?
Don't be a stats. Don't die with regrets at the end of your life. Don't live only to die 'full' — with unfulfilled potentials and purpose taken to the grave. Like Moses, God is asking you today: "What's in your hand?"
April 17, 2021
EP20: 3 Reasons You Must Redeem Time
“Only one life, t’will soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last!” C.T. Studd
April 12, 2021
EP19: Dear Pastors Series - Circle of Influence
When you fail to surround yourself with strong leaders who can speak truth to power in humility and respect but without fear of retribution, we have a problem.
April 06, 2021
EP18: 3 Realities of Easter Weekend
In this episode, I share three life-changing realities I've come to experience as result of the events that took place 2000 years ago on the outskirts of Jerusalem. I'm eternally grateful for the mercy that Calvary made possible in my life. Have you been to Calvary?  Here's praying you have a Christ-centred Easter weekend.
April 01, 2021
EP17: Dear Pastors Series - Don't Control the Narrative
When you set out to control the narrative about other people’s lives to suit your own cause, we have a problem.
March 28, 2021
EP16: There is hope for you
God can restore the broken pitcher of your life. He can make life beautiful again. Out of the broken pieces of your life, God can restore a great masterpiece. Believe God.
March 24, 2021
EP15: Dear Pastors Series - Be Consistent
When you measure others with a high scriptural yardstick but fail to apply the same to yourself, we have a problem.
March 18, 2021
EP14: Religion Got in the Way
We are not called to uphold traditions that have no eternal consequence but to embrace the grace of God that brings salvation and express that grace in a way that exemplifies the nature and love of Christ to the world around us.  Are you letting 'religion' get in your way of knowing God?
March 14, 2021
EP13: Dear Pastors Series - Whose Image?
Dear Pastors,  When you become pre-occupied with protecting your image and ministry at the expense of speaking, upholding and defending the truth and being transparent (whatever the cost to you), then we have a problem.
March 11, 2021
EP12: Introducing Dear Pastors Series
Dear Pastors series was inspired by a blog post I wrote in late 2020, a plea for personal integrity among the pastorate in the body of Christ. My utmost desire is that this series ignites in every believer a burning passion to see revival in the church in a way that transcends the pulpit to the pew. It's time we return to loving and serving Christ in a God-centred way, void of personal pursuits and self-affirmation.
March 07, 2021
EP11: Knowing God: A Matter of Grace
"What matters supremely, therefore, is not, in the last analysis, the fact that I know God, but the larger fact that He knows me" - J.I. Packer There is an inherent danger in measuring our spirituality on the basis of our outward commitment and ‘what we do for God’ on the public stage. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Knowing God is both a matter of personal dealing and grace.
March 01, 2021
EP10: The BIG Question
In the end, you will have to answer God just one question — "Did you do what you were supposed to do on earth?" Nothing else matters than knowing you fulfilled your purpose on earth. Remember, “If you lose your purpose, it's like you're broken.” - Invention of Hugo Cabret. In this episode, I challenge you to ask yourself 3 fundamental questions as you contemplate your WHY.
February 25, 2021
EP9: 7 Life Lessons from Judas Iscariot
There is a danger we look at Judas Iscariot's rise in ministry and tragic fall and point finger at him. True, he betrayed Christ. However, let’s not overlook the life lessons his sad outcome presents to us today. In this episode, I share 7 key lessons we must take to heart.

EP8: Keep Looking Up feat Isabel-Juda
My 8-year old daughter joins me in this week's episode to share one of her favourite poems from my collection Even in the Well. Here's to finding much needed encouragement from her words in the days ahead of you. Keep looking up!
February 14, 2021
EP7: Here We Stand
The church of Christ is experiencing an inward revival and God is working with men and women who have studied and honour the sacrifices of our fathers BUT have determined to go where the Spirit of the Lord leads them. Get ready for inconvenience. It’s time to stand where God stands.

EP6: How to Develop Deep Resilience
When I was a teenager, I experienced significant personal hardships. Life didn't give me a chance. But through the power of resilience, empowered by the 3 practical tips I share in this episode and coupled with the resolve to fulfil purpose, I was able to develop the capacity to withstand adversity. When life gets tough, become more resolute than ever to succeed.

EP5: Conversation with my 8-Year Old
During a recent evening walk with my 8-year old daughter, we talked about her progress with remote learning and the impact of lockdown on her personally. In this episode, I share some life lessons from our conversation.

EP4: Dealing with Discouragement
Have you been discouraged lately? I have. The world is wired to discourage. The news, world events, natural disasters, personal loss, health issues, etc. But God has not left us without antidotes for dealing with discouragement and depression. In this episode, I share four tips on how believers can deal with discouragement. Be rest assured the darkness will lift and your praise will rise again.

EP2: 2021 - Beyond Prophetic Declarations
Beyond all prophetic declarations you will hear about 2021, the single most important charge for the believer is this: “Live each day like it’s your last. Jesus is coming very soon. Let us not sleep. Let us not slumber. Let us not lose heart. May Christ be our vision now and evermore.”
January 05, 2021
EP1: Just Start - Quit Waiting for Permission
On a recent video call with two young leaders, I was asked how they can sustain momentum in 2021. My answer was simple: "Just start!". You don't need man's permission to fulfil your God-intended purpose.
