Sinachi’s Quotes

“It is illegal for Satan to charge you twice for what Jesus has already paid for!! He already paid for your health, wealth and all!!! Go!!!”

“You have to come to the full realization that you are in charge of your seasons!!”

“Refuse to be pulled down by the voices of condemnation and fear around you! Let the voice of God through His Word be the loudest voice in your ear.”

“If you are a man or a woman, surround yourself with people who speak the word of God over your life and if you don’t have those kinds of people, surround yourself with the Word of God and make it the loudest voice in your ears!”

“You must come to the point where you are content being unmarried. Then you would find a man with the same purpose as you. But if you are not content being unmarried, it is unlikely that you would be content being married, because your contentment doesn’t come from being married or unmarried…”

“…The key is to be content with where God has placed you because your happiness isn’t coming from your husband or anywhere else, but your joy, happiness, and fulfilment will come from the calling that God has upon your life.”

“The secret of happiness is in fulfilling the things that God has placed in your heart.”

“Putting your life in God’s hand doesn’t mean you should not be diligent; improve yourself and seek to become the best at what you do. Quality and excellence are important ingredients for success, and they are products of diligence.”

Life Lesson From Sinach

Close Relationship With God

Sinach had always submitted herself to God. She takes out time to listen to him speak concerning situations and what songs to perform at a concert. Her songs also come from the inspiration of the Holy spirit, the word of God and teachings of her Pastor. She can hear God speak because she has a close-knitted relationship with Him.

In fulfilling your life’s course, always put God first, take out time to study God’s word, and develop a close relationship with him.

Mentors are Important

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome had been Sinach’s mentor since she was a little girl. He always encouraged her and spoke greatness into her life. She believed until it became a reality. 

It is important to have a mentor, be it from a distance or close, because who we listen to and look up to has a way of affecting and influencing our lives positively or negatively.
