TODAY BY THE GRACE OF GOD I TURNED 53 IN THE FAITH AND I CAN TELL YOU IT HAS BEEN A MOST EXCITING ADVENTURE.
NO ONE CAN SECURE YOUR DESTINY LIKE YOUR SAVIOUR, ENJOY FOLLOWING JESUS AS YOUR NATURAL LIFESTYLE.
NEVER GET INVOLVED IN SAYING YOUR CHURCH IS BETTER THAN ANY CHURCH, EVERY CHURCH HAS ITS MISSION. FACE YOUR OWN MISSION.
– Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
To get tired of breathing is to get tired of living. To get tired of obeying God is to get tired of His blessings in our lives. Deuteronomy 5:32-33. Obedience in the spiritual is like breathing in the physical. When you are tired of obeying God, you are tired of life.
Prayers – Grace for obedience to become your new lifestyle, lift your hands and receive it.
Heavenly Father we are here this morning again, speak to us by your word in Jesus precious name.
It is a risk to go on vacation from breathing. People don’t return from such a break.
– No one here will sell his glorious destiny for a morsel of meat.
No Church grows without people on the go. It is people on the go that grows a Church. Luke 14:23. Whether formally or informally somebody must become an attraction for someone else to come. Just like in marketing, aggressive marketing is key to making sales of any product no matter the quality. You must return with souls today. It reflects in the way you communicate the gospel. The compassion that grips you, the love oozing out of you in reaching out to those people.
I said in one of those books that when your thirst becomes a necessity, all your senses will come alive and you will engage all righteous strategy to get results. 1 Corinthians 9:16. Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel and we saw how much results he got.
We must also understand that no matter the quality of the seed sown, it takes watering for it to grow. A seed that is sown without water dies in the ground. While we go about in sowing the word by reaching out to the lost, we must engage in watering that seed on the altar of prayer. Paul plants, Apollos watered and God brings the increase. So our senior citizens have that responsibility, people that don’t have the privilege of moving about have the responsibility of watering the seed sown on the altar of prayer.
Soul winners use one hand in building, the other hand in holding the spear to cut off the enemy from uprooting the seed planted. So watering is a must for our seed to grow. Going out without prayer backup can make it a wasteful endeavour. No seed, no matter the quality, will die in the ground without water. God cannot bring increase until the seed is planted and watered (1 Corinthians 3:8).
Aggressiveness doesn’t mean we should become a nuisance to the souls – calling at odd times and visiting anytime and breaking the peace of the home. Our politeness has a lot to do with securing souls into the Kingdom. You don’t move to a place without an appointment.
We must engage the wisdom of heaven in securing results on the harvest field. Prayers and Supplications with Thanksgiving. Proverbs 12:14, 13:2, 18:20, Hebrew 13:15. What makes a sacrifice is that you haven’t seen the results but you are giving thanks for having heard your prayers and supplication.
Continuous thanksgiving will always come about with a result. Without the fruit of your lips, your seed sown will go to waste. Be thankful, when you give in to murmuring and complaining you are draining the water from the ground and the seed dies.
– None of your labour will be wasted this year.
All have results so get involved. That leaves no man with an excuse, I am either out there on the go or I am praying in my closet. Never get involved in saying your Church is better than any Church, every Church has its mission. Face your mission. Our mission is to stop the tears of mankind. What we are marketing is come and see how Jesus liberates people in this Church. It is the same Church of Jesus, your Church is not better than another man’s Church.
No one can have a heart for God without having time for Him. Daniel prayed three times a day, He was Prime Minister of Babylon, the greatest nation on earth at that time. David, King of Israel prayed three times a day, so it is not about our position, it is about where our heart is. David had seven praise sessions per day.
You can’t have a heart for God and not have time for God. Please don’t excuse yourself from the blessing of God. Please engage and engage wholeheartedly.
– Tomorrow we shall be visited with the kind of multitude we have never seen before.
Lord Jesus over to you, visit us in the outreach today like never before. Let every unsaved soul across our district line be captured into the kingdom. Let it result in their liberty from all oppression of the devil. Wipe away their tears, turn their sorrow to joy. Show us what we have never seen before tomorrow morning. Continue to change each one’s story in Jesus name.
Today by the grace of God I turned 53 in the faith and I can tell you it has been a most exciting adventure. I have not had one day of thinking backward ‘what am I doing? Why am I doing this?’. I thank God for grace, may the same grace be your portion. May you be tireless and delightful in your pursuit after God. No one here’s life shall ever lose color. It is first a matter of choice, may you make that choice. No one can secure your destiny like your Saviour, enjoy following Jesus as your natural lifestyle not just for 21 days of prayer and fasting. There are quite a number of people here who have been in this for so many years and are having the biggest fun of their lives.
You never miss your steps.
– Everyone saved today will be saved to the utmost.
– Everyone saved today will make heaven at last.
The day is declared a most fruitful day for every one of us.
The returns from today’s input will surprise you yourself.
Give God thanks.
