Pastor Esther Komaiya at Kingdom Wealth Conference (Morning Session)

I remembered when I was pregnant with my first child, my husband will tell me you better be walking on time because there is no money, as we are finishing the service, l am trekking home but trekking home with joy.

He too is going to trek but when he is talking you will not believe he doesn’t have one Kobo. There was salary but it has been slaughtered on the Altar of sacrifices. People believe that you have to take care of yourself and all that but it was God first.

There were times money will come and he will say let us sow it for our future and we were sowing. There have been sacrifices that have been on the ground that heaven must remember.

There was a particular car we had then and he said God is telling him that we should sow it, I said sow it?

When he gave it out to the Pastor, when we were going to school it was a bike we had to use and the boy got an injury on his legs so we had to go to the hospital, if you are not careful, the devil will tell you that, you see why you sowed the car.

A senior man called me and said what is this, what kind of living is this? Today, that man is respecting my husband.

Several times we were longing for impartation and as we were longing for it, we were sowing. Several times you will see him praying with the picture of Bishop Oyedepo saying God the same grace, we were like God the same grace that helped your servant, let it help us.

By the time we knew God was telling us to leave, I told him, I don’t want to leave anyhow, I don’t want the curse of Bishop Oyedepo, one curse is too much, everyone that left him anyhow, something always goes wrong. I beg you if you are in a spiritual environment and you want to leave please be careful how you leave, there is always a protocol of exit. If you are angry and you want to leave be careful how you leave.

The way you leave is the first foundation of the new work you want to go and do. The way you leave is a major foundation. I told him, be careful, I don’t want to go with a curse and he said don’t worry, we are prayerful about it until the opening came and God’s servant said you can go.

When God’s servant said we can go and we started the Ministry, thank God for Pastor Olumide, he was encouraging and everything.

At the stage we were leaving we were already at the top and people were saying, why are you leaving? We said it is God, God is calling us.
When we started it was a humble beginning, as if we were going to start from zero again. Bishop told us that you don’t do ministry alone, there must be grace backing you. He said you don’t struggle, you need graces with you and then we started connecting to graces and God began to help us. The work was struggling, we were digging into it and praying with fasting and direction. Those times, when the house is full and you want to serve, you will ask who again is in the house, you put plates and everyone must eat especially in the student environment, they always come around, we pack plates and we were doing it like that knowing that there is a God that rewards.

God rewards and He is watching and when the harvest began to show up, there are people we had to help with one thing or the other it was later we started meeting them and they will say sir you paid my school fees and all of that.

There was a time I went to the US and when the person was telling me what Pastor K did, I was wondering.

It was a blessing but initially, it looked like a lot of sacrifices. Sometimes as we were moving, I wasn’t so sure but I knew that God was calling us.

When He told us to leave for Warri, it was as if they were pursuing him, he said I am leaving, come and meet me with the children.

When we got to Warri, we got there with a Sienna, the Sienna he said he was going to sow it to Pastor E. A. Adeboye, I said God you are in control. We were in a hotel for a while, the big boys were in school, the twins were with us, we were only having tea and bread and they said mummy, we love tea and bread but cook something else, we are tired of tea and bread.

I will look at them and say this is a phase, they must have to go through this.

Today all those have turned to stories but it wasn’t the same way we started that we are in now. For all of us there is a process to go through and the earlier we engage the process the better for us.

Our assignment is unique and great but there is a process. A lot of people want to jump but there is a process, you have to wait for nine months for the baby to come and when the baby comes, you will be glad you went through the nine months.
As we went through the stages, what about marriage? Recently someone was talking to my husband, he said the Church is not growing very well and the wife was going to do charm on behalf of the husband for the Church to grow. I was like God what is this, so these things are real, when did we get to that, thank God for the man’s stand, he was not happy. Several people will do anything to get things going for themselves. As we started, there are prayers we prayed and even till today, there are prayers, sacrifices and things you have to let go of if you want things to move.

Severally, we have done healing school and the testimonies have been amazing. Somebody was even sharing a testimony about how God intervened on her behalf.

We see these testimonies and we too have to go to God and seek Him in prayers. I am not saying it is our prayers that did it but we have to go to God in prayers if we don’t want to use jazz in ministry. If you want things to move without jazz in ministry, you must pray and make sacrifices.

These days if you come for prayer meetings and you see the numbers, I will be like, where is everybody?
Several things have happened but God has helped us, God has been involved. How do you cope with marriage and all these things? Marriage is demanding, marriage is tasking but communication. When we got to Botswana, the Pastor’s wife was telling me that this place, hold your husband like this and HIV was a norm over there. I was like HIV no dey jump on somebody, it cannot happen and God that sent us here will keep us. I told my husband, they said that HIV is here and I have to hold you but you know I can’t hold you but I trust you. You have to be very cautious that this is an environment that they hunt for men, if you are not looking for them, they are looking for you. God has been faithful, communicating with him, with the children because by the time you are moving from place to place. By the time we were leaving, my boys were like mummy what are we doing here? Let’s go back to Botswana. I was looking at him, we can’t go back there, it is not our country. People even said Pastor K why are you going back home? Just disappear, don’t go back again, we said no, we can’t do that, they sent us here and because they sent us here we must go back home. That is how God has been keeping us. The process is sometimes long, not interesting but if you follow through the process you will enjoy the reward.
The reward today, if you talk about finances, God has been faithful, every giving we gave, I can tell you that God is ever too faithful. Of everything we have given, I have seen God brought it back, good measure, pressed down, shaking together and running over. Today, I don’t think there is anything we have that we cannot give because God is always faithful. Giving to God, the Prophets and members has been a great secret for us. The Bible talks about us being partakers of the things of God, we being partakers of somebody else’s grace as we connect to them. We partake of this grace by connecting because we cannot do it alone. Each time we start a new work, we are connecting to grace. As we connect to grace, we see that same grace answer for us. There are times we are like this result is beyond us, it must be God and the graces we are connected to. Grace has been evidently there for us, connectivity to grace has been a great help to us in this world. My husband will always tell me that we don’t have an excuse to fail. There has been a lot of work, we have meetings upon meetings, training upon training, as we start the work, we keep pushing for more work. There is no time the work will stop but God’s grace is always evident.
As I look back again at all that has happened all through the Ministry, I realize that caution must be taken.

Many people come around for several reasons when they come around you. I tell everyone around, be careful, this work is spiritual In case people are living with me so that you will not be a casualty.

People are people, different people come to church but you have to be cautious as ministers of the Gospel. As I stand here to minister to people, I realize that people come to church for several reasons but once we are cautious, God will help us.

There was a time a lady came around, then I had two boys and I said I was going to have one more and I wanted a girl, I told my husband. This lady, I never even knew at that time, she joined the Church, she said she is a prophetess and all that, she joined the choir and after a while, she said the Lord said she should come and stay with me to be praying for me, I said ‘that is powerful, thank you so much in my mind I said ‘never’. Prayer is spiritual, wherever you are, just be praying it will be answering for me here. I had to be very nice to say no. Before we knew it, the trouble this girl did, it was God that delivered us. If we were just foolish, we would have opened up the door and she would have messed the place up.


There was a lady that said she loves what my husband was doing, she said she wants to take him to the UK, I said he is not going anywhere if you want to take, take the two of us. She came to say something nice but you have to be very careful in ministry, it is not everything they give us we use, it is not everything that is for you, some are to go through us for somebody else.
Ministry, all manner of people will come, take caution!

You can never go wrong trusting God. Relationship has been very important, the Bible talks about when Daniel had an issue and they said his head was going to be cut off, he went back to his company, he sat with them prayed with them and they said okay, what should be done. They sought God and God showed them the answer.

As ministers, we have our own people, we have our own colleagues and I will always advise people, Mummy Oyedepo will tell us that, be friendly but be careful not to have friends among church members like that.

You must know who and who to relate with, there are what to relate with church members and what not to relate with church members. God will help us out in Jesus name.
In this work with God, I have seen God’s help in several places.

We are to take care of our health. Health is important, more than any other thing we are thinking about, health should be in place.

There was a particular time, my husband was a little bit down, it was getting worse and we were doing all manner of tests, we were wondering what is happening and this particular time he sat me down and said if I go please remarry. I said what? I knew this was a serious thing because my husband will never say anything negative, I have always known him as a positive person. I said I didn’t marry early to be a widow. We didn’t have the twins then so I had to leave the two boys, traveled with him to Kaduna, we had to go see Bishop Abioye then, they did all the tests and said we should start praying, thank God for everyone that stood with us. This work is so spiritual but health-wise, we have to take care of the spiritual and the healthy living. Health was paramount, when we clocked forty, our diet changed, when we clocked fifty, our diet keeps changing.

More than the diet, the spiritual must be in place, thank God for where we went to. Thank God for spiritual covering and before we knew it, the arrow returned back to the sender.

Today God has been so faithful to us in every aspect and we are grateful to him. If we look back we can say God this is your finger.

We were connecting to the grace of the House and it was working for us. When we wanted to start our own, we didn’t leave anyhow, we followed the protocol of exit, we left properly and started properly and God began to lead and today we are who we are because of God’s leading and God’s guidance.

All I am saying is that God has been our backbone, our strength, God has been leading us all through. God has guided and helped us. We are what we are because of God in our life.
A lot of us know we are not there yet, we are still longing to know about God. The summary of everything is that you can depend on God. Whatever you do, just keep doing it, it is a process, your reward is coming.

  • Say, Father, help me
