Nigeria are scheduled to play Ethiopia at the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday, in a friendly game that is aimed at helping both teams prepare for the African Nations Championship which will be held in South Africa between January 11 to February 1.

To that effect, the Nigeria Football Federation who are organising the friendly game have secured the services of match officials from the Republic of Guinea.

Secretary-General of the Guinean FA, Ibrahima Barry, in a letter addressed to the NFF noted that his association has received the request from Nigeria, and has thus nominated three of its officials to take charge of the encounter.

The centre referee will be Yakhouba Keita, a 38-year old official who has been an international referee since 2004, while the 1st Assistant Referee is Moustapha Toure, who was born in 1980 and has been an international assistant referee since 2007.

Abdel Raffi, 30, who became an international assistant referee last year, will serve as the 2nd Assistant Referee, with the Nigeria Football Federation to appoint a Nigerian to serve as Fourth Official.

Living In His Perfect Will · Friday, January 3rd.

Pastor Anita

Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God (Hebrews 10:7).

God loves to help you achieve your dreams, but much better is when you live out His dreams for you. He has a bigger and better dream for you than you could ever have for yourself. Therefore, in setting your goals for the year, the smart thing to do is to be sure those goals are within the ambits of His desires. Your goal, at all times, should be to fulfil His perfect will.

To live in God’s dream for your life is the best place to be. That way, you’re victorious irrespective of the crises, stresses and struggles you encounter, because you’re in the centre of His perfect will. Everything you require is available to you in Him. The Lord Jesus said in Luke 12:32 \"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.\"

Living in His perfect will requires intimacy with the Holy Spirit. You’d have to recognize and yield yourself to Him, giving Him the right of way in your life. Maybe, right now, you’re in a situation where you’re not sure whether or not you’re living in God’s plan for your life, and as a result, you’re wondering \"How do I come out? How do I change things and get back into God’s perfect will?\"

First, recognize that He’s big enough to change things for you. Secondly, decide to let the Holy Spirit gain dominion and mastery in your life: let Him take over! He’ll guide you to be in God’s place, in God’s time, for God’s purpose, in God’s way. He’s the One that reveals to your spirit the things God wants you to do, and how He wants you to do them. Living within the ambits of His desires will bring unprecedented joy and fulfilment into your life.

Never try to be someone else; take pleasure in your uniqueness, and be what God wants you to be.


Dear Father, I thank you for the light of your Word, by which I’ve discovered your will and walk in your plans for my life. I yield completely to the Lordship and tutelage of the Holy Spirit, who guides me in your perfect will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

f u r t h e r s t u d y: Romans 12:2; Colossians 4:17
