Pastor Esther Komaiya at Kingdom Wealth Conference (Morning Session)
This year I am twenty-four years in marriage and ministry, with everything he said I know these things are true. If we are standing here today, it is because God has helped us. The Bible says it is of the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed.

A whole lot happens in ministry and everywhere so if anyone is standing, it is grace.
When we got married, about eleven to fourteen people got married that day and a whole lot of things happened to so many people.

Each time you are standing, it is because you obtain mercy. Thank God for Pastor Komaiya.
The truth is that the mercies of God have been there for us but I want to give a little background of how I grew up.

I grew up in the Anglican Church with my mom and dad especially my dad and there was a time they came to do one film show, the Sunday School part was a very charismatic session. They had a burning hell film show and when I looked I was like if this thing is real, I will not get there. When I was in secondary school, one guy will not leave my life, he will always come and be preaching, he kept preaching till I got born again.

I was still in Anglican but you will think I go to Deeper Life, I knew I was looking for God. There was a time I felt I wasn’t getting enough nutrient, I was going from church to church. At a time I settled somewhere and was living like that.

This same brother will still look for me and give me some messages and I was feeding on it, then you know, no earrings, I wasn’t so sure that it was a bad thing and I wasn’t so sure that this was the right thing.

As I grew, I wrote WAEC, it was fine but my JAMB jammed me the first time and the second time. I was looking for the University of Lagos or Ife or I will manage Lagos State University. When JAMB jammed me two times, I looked at the brochure with tears I saw Ogun State University, I said let me just manage this glorified secondary school, let me just go in and then I will change back to Ife.

I took Ogun State and I saw Ago Iwoye.

That year it was successful, I passed the JAMB and got above the cutoff. When I got to Ago Iwoye and they said to go to the annex for your faculty, Ijebu-Igbo. I said God forbid, from small my dad said nobody should cross that side, it was a forbidden area for my family.

Our steps are ordered by the Lord so when I got to that Ijebu, I started the School, joined the prayer band and I was praying and then the second year there was a strike and everything.

This brother joined the Prayer Band too, a lot of people were joining the prayer band and then I saw one Brother Korede that joined the prayer band. When he joined, we will greet ourselves and go. After one night’s vigil, he said sister Tayo, please I want to come to your house to see you.

We gave time and he came. When he came, he was sharing revelation, wisdom, knowledge, as soon as he finished sharing, he told me that I am the wife, I said is that how to propose? I said okay bye thank you. When he left I said God, is that my husband? I don’t know this person. I went to my room, locked the room, knelt down and was praying then I got the revelation to go to Genesis 24, I was reading and reading then I got to verse 50, which says this thing proceeded from the Lord.

It was as if they wrote my name, Esther, this is proceeded from the Lord. I said that must be my mind. I was praying and praying about it and I was having more conviction that he is my husband.

I knew this was God for me, when I knew he was the one, I said let me keep praying. I went to the Prayer Band Leader, after a while I knew it was him, before I went to him I said God, let him not say anything but your will. I went to him, told him that this person came around, proposed, he asked me, what do you want to do?

I said I am praying, he said I should pray in the Holy Ghost for the next few weeks. He said when the Spirit of truth comes, it shall guide us into all truth. I started praying, the more I prayed I was sure it was him and then I knew it was him.

There was a time he came back and said so Tayo, how far?
I said I was still praying. He said he knows I can’t say no, I said what? I can say no, what do you mean by that.

I was wondering, what guts has this person that he is saying I know you can’t say no, I can say no. Long story short, we were together. When I said yes, the second day he came back and said now that I have said yes, we have to do feet washing, Holy Communion, anointing session because of this yes. I knew I was going into a serious thing.

We did feet washing and all and he was giving me scriptures that before then it was the Garden of Eden, behind them is this, they will hurt or destroy. I said okay, I knew he was serious and for the past one year, he has been watching me and he knew I was the one and he wanted to be very sure.

When we were going to get married, he was two years ahead of me so he finished, went to serve. He served in the Chapel, after a while, we ended up in ministry.

I knew I was going to end up in ministry but I didn’t know how I will but I know that I want to know God and I loved God. It was just his kingdom I was looking for. Seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness and every other thing will be added.

When we were going to get married, I knew his salary and everything.
During the courtship, there was a particular season, it was one brown kaftan I was seeing on him and I was wondering, won’t this guy change this cloth?

I will not ask him, every time I will see him in service with one cloth.

It was later he went to sew his clothes, he said there was a time for sacrifices so he packed all his clothes and gave them out. I said Esther, it is well. I was already getting to know that this is the kind of person I am getting married to.

You know the Ijebu thing I said, my daddy and everyone was like?

I told everyone I was going to get married to him but I couldn’t tell my dad that it was him. When I tell everyone they will say, eh, your daddy. When God is involved, there is something about it and it will work out, no matter who is against it.

On a particular day, all of us were on the balcony discussing and then that issue of the tribe came in again, they were talking about the tribe and everybody was looking at me and they were disappearing one after the other it became me and my dad. I told him that, daddy, it is not everybody from his place that is like this, he said what? His blood pressure must have been high that day.

I was like God, I am going to get married to him, I was persuaded that this thing is from the Lord. Before I knew it, everyone talked to him and he calmed down and accepted him.
The wedding gown, bros where is the money?

God will provide, it was a wedding by faith, in fact, two weeks to the wedding I asked for the wedding gown, he said don’t worry God will provide it was later I realized that he went to Mama D. Pastor Segun got married in February and we got married in December, it was Mama D’s wedding gown I used for that day.

We were doing the Ministry. It was the day of our wedding I saw him reading one letter, I said what is that he said don’t worry, it was later that day he told me that he has been transferred, on the wedding day.

I stayed with Pastor Segun a little bit then I went to join him, we started.

Ministry to me has been a process, it has been putting God’s kingdom first. When we started, I will just pray for my mom not to come and greet me because I knew she will be concerned that this girl has signed for suffering, there was no bedspread, no money for bedsheets. In the flat we lived, there was one Pastor, one accountant and us.

Everybody had a common room, the sitting room. That was how we started. As we were starting, with joy he will be talking to me and saying don’t worry, one day we will be eating this meal in Atlanta, I will say yes and everything like that, fifty naira was a big thing then.
