THE BRAIN IS STRONGER THAN STRENGTH.
FAILURE IS ONLY AN OPINION
NEVER GO TO GOD AS AN UNWORTHY SINNER
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
-Pastor David Ibiyeomie
There are two people who don’t knock my door, they just open the door, David and my wife. I will just look and I am like this people are here again. Don’t go to God like a house boy, go to God like a son, father I am your child, I have come before you. You know, there is a housemaid that stands by the door. They knock and then say: sir, I am here o.
You’re a child of God, knock the door and open it, he said come to me with all boldness. Leave religion, it affects self-esteem. Never go to God as an unworthy sinner, you! Unworthy. God created you worthy, you’re in his own image, so that means you’re saying God is unworthy. Read the Bible, so if you’re unworthy, God is unworthy. You’re not unworthy, you’re the only creature of God. I was studying and I discovered that Lions are not as dangerous as you are.
I won’t teach you today. Let me not digress, you know why? Lions have claws and teeth, yet you look at them they are destructive. No! But we’ve got a brain, what you create can kill all the lions. So, it’s not strength that makes you, it is your brain. Man has created the most destructive equipment in the world. Lions will go after you physically but man can burn you from up and you’re dead. So, the brain is stronger than strength. Only man thinks, lions don’t think, that’s a teaching for another day.
Grasshopper mentality will make you keep hopping, stop complaining and speak like a conqueror. Grasshopper will make you talk about the injustice of people towards you.
You will keep talking about mistreatment and how people don’t understand you, lack of finance, when you see a man talking about poverty, he has complex, lack of victory, all those kinds of talk they are not right. When it comes to the picture of the devil about you, let me show you something, every time Satan wants to paint you somehow and make you know that you’re a defeated does, listen to me. Tell the devil, if there is anybody who is a failure, it is you, you failed before I was born, before my grandfather you have been a failure, you’re a failure from the beginning till now, so your failure is older than my own and I am not a failure, failure is only an opinion.
That you fail does not mean you’re a failure, it’s only an opinion. The devil is a dog and the devil is like a roaring lion here’s not a lion. Something is like it does not mean it is. You see children carrying teddy bears and sleeping with them. Is a teddy bear? It is like a teddy bear but it’s a doll. 1st Peter 5:8. He’s not a lion, he’s like a Lion but he’s not one, you’re the Lion.
Who are you? Listen carefully, in Revelation 5:5. John 17:18. So, there is no day a dog can harass a lion. Listen carefully, can a dog harass a lion, even in the sleeping state of a Lion, the dog can’t make noise and if you’re of the lion of the tribe of Judah and Satan is a dog then he should be at your mercy.
It’s not you who should be at his mercy, the devil should be at your mercy, that’s why when Jesus came, they said have you come to destroy us before our time. Please change your perspective because as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
