YOU MISS A LOT WHEN YOU TOSS GOD AND THE INTEREST OF HIS KINGDOM ASIDE, YOU WILL JUST BE STRUGLING UNNECESSARILY.
I HAVE BEEN RUNNING AFTER THE INTEREST OF GOD’S KINGDOM FOR 45 YEARS NOW AND I HAVE ZERO REGRETS, ALL ROUND REST IN MY LIFE.
WHEN THE INTEREST OF GOD’S KINGDOM BECOMES YOUR PRIORITY, FAVOUR BECOMES YOUR NATURAL EXPERIENCE.
- Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP
Jesus thank you for your protective hand all through since the week began, for all the goodness and mercy we have received since Monday we say thank you.

Thank you for answering our prayers today, tomorrow’s service shall be awesome, it shall be wonderful, the kind we have never seen before in Jesus precious name we pray.
ONE CANNOT HAVE A HEART FOR GOD AND NOT HAVE TIME FOR HIM.
You can’t have a heart for God and not know, you will not only know it, those around you will know it too that this is a love slave of Christ. You heart for God will keep disturbing them because you are untouchable by their evil devices. They would want to do anything to disconnect you from God so you can become a victim, so get smart.
A heart for God is one of our greatest assets in our adventure on earth. For we know that all things work together for the good of those that have a heart for God, all things not some things.
Satan is the thief so he wants to rob you of some things if you let him and all things if you are careless enough.
Romans 8:28, 1 Corinthians 2:9
A heart for God will make a wonder of an ordinary believer like you and me. A heart for God is loaded with unfathomable blessings. Let’s look at King Asa
2 Chronicles 15:3-15
We fall into all kinds of trouble without a place for God in our hearts. A heart for God guarantees us access to round about rest on all sides: Rest at home, rest in your body, rest for at work, rest that you can’t buy with money.
All round rest is a reality that is reserved only for those that have a heart for God. Many in the body of Christ and many in this church in particular, are operating in the realm of all round rest.
- May you be part of that list.
This commission has experienced all round rest for 40 years now, doing the same thing we have been doing – active partnership with Jesus in reaching out to the lost which is God’s cardinal mission for sending Jesus to the earth.
Verse 19 says that there was no war in Judah for twenty years, Judah enjoyed all round rest until King Asa turned his back on that covenant and then trouble came back. A heart for God guarantees access to the realm of all round rest.
There are many restless presidents of many nations, who require medical aid to sleep in their nation where they are supposed to be number one. There are many giants of industries, business moguls who are very restless. So it is not in status, when you partner with the Prince of Peace in truth and in deed, you enjoy all round rest without having to beg it.
- Grace to enter into that covenant and grace to abide there, receive it right now.
David a man with a heart for God, had three prayer sessions and seven praise sessions, How? Ask him. A heart for God makes you addicted to God and the interest of his kingdom.
You know my position makes it difficult for me to share Christ, that is not true, it is just your heart that is not there. How many MDs today will call cleaners in their office and share the message of Christ with them.
A heart for alcohol gives people time for alcohol every day, a heart for drugs give people time for drugs every day, it has driven them bunker and they are still panting after it every day.
In the same vain, a heart for God decorates destinies with favour.
That is how God decorated the life of King Asa until he backed out of that covenant.
- May you receive grace not to back out of that covenant.
We must have time for God to make the most of our lives on earth. We can’t create time, it is already created all we need is to invest. It is interesting that where a man’s treasure is, there his time will be also. You can’t see your treasures in God, without your heart going after Him. You can’t find it and not go for it.
My prayer is that something turns in your heart, that will turn your heart after God in unrecoverable dimension. You will just be loving God, not minding other people’s comments. You are just on your way going and you won’t miss it.
If you obey and serve God you are not supposed to beg for bread. Give Him the time that belongs to Him and watch how He continues to beautify your life.
It is wisdom to invest your God given time in serving His interests and you make your marks without sweat. You don’t need too much strength, just a change on the inside to keep His instructions not theoretically but practically. Keep His instructions and he just steps in and begins to decorate your life.
- You shall not miss this wave of glory in the mighty name of Jesus.
Proverbs 11:30, Proverbs 3:35
To inherit the glory made available for you by redemption, be a soul winner. I have been running after this for forty five years and I have zero regrets. I have rest in my heart, rest in my soul. I can walk through a troop of wicked people unscratched. You dwell in God and God dwells in you, let me see who will touch you, which weapon are they carrying?
You don’t know what you are missing when you toss God and the interest of His kingdom aside. You will just be struggling and struggling.
As you turn many to Christ, you enter into generational blessings that your children’s children will testify of, if Jesus tarries.
Don’t be entertained by these statements. Don’t see your prophet as a motivational speaker, I am speaking to you the mind of God if you are interested.
When you go after God, goodness and mercy naturally follow you.
- That will be your experience from now on.
You can’t treat God’s word with levity and expect Him to treat you with dignity. “He that honours me, I will honour. He that despises me, I will lightly esteem” (1 Samuel 2:30). You won’t hear me, I won’t hear you too. Nothing triggers the supernatural in a believers life like obedience of faith. Obedience of faith will always trigger the supernatural.
What God is after is your benefit, there is no commandment of scripture that is for God’s benefit, it is for your benefit. There is nothing you and I can do for God, everything we do is for our own good.
- God will surprise you.
Lift up your two hands and receive grace never to back out of that covenant of seeking God and the interest of His kingdom.
It unleashes favour on you when you take pleasure in the interests of His kingdom.
When it becomes your priority, favour becomes your natural experience, you are not crying, you are not fighting for it, it just follows.
How many of you know that favour flows after this ministry?
and how many want that same favour replicated in their lives? Just maintain the same attitude, be positioned after the order of this commission and favour will follow you.
Father in the name of Jesus, let tomorrow’s service launch every worshipper into that realm of uncheckered favour, unhidden favour, favour that is seen by all.
Lord let tomorrow be the end of misfortune in the life of every worshipper, let everyone walk into unusual realm of favour. Terminate difficulty and adversity in the life of every one here in the name of Jesus. Let every invitee come and take cover under this atmosphere of favour. Let that favour turn the barren into fruitful mothers of children.
Let your favour open doors to every closed up destiny.
Expect a fresh baptism of favour upon every one tomorrow.
Lift up two hands and give God praise.
