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…

A guide to new year resolutions

A guide to new year resolutions By Oluwatoyosi Adegunle  Edited by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun 
Happy new year! Some of us used all our strength to shout 365 hallelujahs during the cross over service, did you? The essence of the excitement is gratitude. People are exceptionally grateful for the privilege to see another new year, I am too! 
1 Thessalonians 5:18(NIV) give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Remember to be grateful for everything God has done and given you in the past and new year. The new year is a very big deal because not only is it the start of a decade but it is another opportunity to be reflective, make practical and realistic goals, resolutions, and prepare yourself for what lies ahead. For many of us, this decade is when we will do a lot of our building (families, careers, ministry), it's imperative that we make plans and set goals.
Currently, people think it is outdated and archaic to have new year resolutions, plans, due to …
