The opposite of Love is fear, not hate

The opposite of Love is fear, not hateBy Oluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun 
Can we ever truly understand how love really works? I mean, it is so huge, deep and wide, you have to rely on God to fully understand it and be able to live it. The beauty of having a relationship with God is that you learn every day and you’re able to have a full-on conversation with God about anything. An exciting journey, if you ask me! 
As big as love is, there’s only one side to its perfection, God! God is love and with love, he births all the beautiful things you see, with love, he created you, your colleague, your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, your boss, your friends, your parents, your classmate and every single person you know on earth. Love is the foundation of our salvation, what else could make a man die for you? Nothing but love!  It is a sweet experience to be able to love Jesus and his people.
Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still si…

Is God's love truly enough?

Is God's love truly enough?by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun
It's the month of love and I'll like to talk to you about love. If you follow me on social media, you'd know that I'm a big advocate of showing love to people even when they are undeserving because we've been enabled as believers. This may be helpful fo whatever situation you're in or just serve as an encouragement in your daily struggles. I pray that you continue to yield to the Holy Spirit.
The greatest show of love ever recorded in the world is the crucifixion of Jesus. I know it isn't an easter period where everyone chooses to deliver a powerful message about the cross. However, I just want to talk to you about God's love toward you and how it can impact everything that concerns you.
Here are some of my thoughts on the love to God to the believer, the unbeliever and pretty much anybody curious about God's love.  Being bad is the qualification for God's loveRomans 5:8 (AMPC) But God show…

Love is not a Feeling, Love is not a Choice, Love is our nature as believers

Love is not a feeling, Love is not a Choice, Love is our nature as believers
By Oluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun 
I recently had a conversation with an older friend talking about how love is not enough to make any relationship work. He walked me through the scriptures and days of the old experiences where our mothers and fathers have shown us that love is their very nature, and there is no other way to build any relationship in life but to love. I asked him “what about commitment, understanding, trust? Shouldn’t I have all of these alongside love to make a relationship work?” and he said, “if you truly love them, with the love of God, then, it is enough to make it work”.
Life experiences, human relations, books, personal upbringing and movies have truly influenced our perspective of love and subconsciously taught us how to love, when to love, and who to love based on false judgments. The devil never gets tired of bringing up false ways and narratives that go agai…

How to live a sin-free life; slaves to righteousness

How to live a sin-free lifeBy Oluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun  Hey! I really hope this meets you well. Have you ever been stuck with addictions, bad habits, or wrongdoing, and you've tried to stop, but you never really understood how you got there so fast and deep, and how to stop it. Tell you what? Nothing is as frustrating as this experience! If you've ever been in this situation, you most likely spend much time wondering and thinking about how you started and how you to stop it. 
Addictions, bad habits, and wrongdoings are those 'little foxes' we were warned against in Songs of Solomon 2:15.  They don't come in their fullness, but are very subtle and creep in without your permission whenever you let down your guard and give room for a tiny bit of them in your heart. These things truly don't define your status as a child of God, but equally don't aid your spiritual growth or relationship with God and you need to watch it. These thing…

How to fast effectively as a believer

How to fast effectively by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Thursday, 23 January 2020

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I’m super excited that you clicked this link. I see you’re interested in fasting. Maybe you don’t get the point of doing this religious activity or you want to know how to make your fast more meaningful or you’re just curious, whichever your reason for being here today, you are welcome. Let’s get right into it. Why do we fast? Honestly, as a child, I did not quite get the full reason why we fast. I mean are we trying to suffer so God can have mercy on us? For many people, they believe starving *coughs* fasting changes God’s mind about a situation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big believer in the power of fasting. But let’s clear one thing first: Fasting does not change God, it changes us You must be thinking “Is this true”? Yes, it is and I’m here to tell you that your change is the real motive behind fasting. First of all, God isn’t moved by anything we do or offer Him. He has …

How can I live boldly for Jesus?

How can I live boldly for Jesus? by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun
Thursday, January 16th 2020
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I’m so happy to see that you stopped by. This means the world to me, I don’t take your presence for granted. How’s the new year going? So far so good I hope. I was joking with a friend the other day about how fast the month of January is moving; I can’t believe it’s the 16th already. If you say your January will drag, it becomes your reality. Learn to always speak to what you want and watch it manifest.
Today I’m going to be talking about living loud and unapologetic for Jesus. This post is inspired by the TSP devotional entry from January 13th titled “Live it loud”.  Have you ever been to a football viewing centre or a stadium during a match? Why is it always so loud?  You see, what you have is a mix of different club fans so passionate and confident in their team's abilities that they are not ashamed to shout, argue, chant about it or put on a bright mix of…

How to be truly content

How to be truly content
By Oluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun 

Hello everyone, welcome back to bibilamour04.com. This is an amazing faith and lifestyle blog that transforms lives and edifies God's people. You're in the right place! This is my second post on this blog and I'm super thankful for all the love shown on my last post. If you didn't get a chance to read it, you can check it out here. I love you all! 

Today, Bibi has been gracious enough to let me talk about my experience with being content, here we go.


For the past three months, I've been praying, more like pleading to God for a laptop. A laptop is super helpful for work, my content creation and other stuff. Most importantly, I wanted to relieve my phone from all the workload I put on it. Very recently, in a manner I choose to address as divine, I got my laptop. It is really cute and the exact size I’ve always wanted. The moment I realized I was getting one soon, you needed to have seen my v…
