STOP BLAMING GOD FOR YOUR PROBLEMS – Bishop David Oyedepo

The Lord speaking to me said some are asking if Matthew 6:33 works, why is it not working for everybody. Does healing work in my kingdom?

Why is it not working for everybody? Not everybody receives and believes it. Is prosperity working in the kingdom?

Yes! Is it working for everybody? No, because not everyone believes and receives it.

Every word I speak works for whosoever believes.

Nothing works in your life on its own without your conscious engagement with it. Does success work in the Kingdom? Yes! Why is it not working for everybody?

It only works for those who believe in it and work it out. You never find an idle man who succeeds, it is not known in the natural and you can’t find it in the supernatural.

Only diligent individuals ever get distinguished in their pursuit. Stop casting aspersions on me, I am not the one responsible for where you are.

If you won’t pray, God has no right to answer. You are just there complaining, complaining and asking is not the same. Obey me and you say No! I will not listen. Everything about God operates on a covenant platform. You determine how God relates with you. I determine how God relates with me.

Stop blaming God. God is not your troubler. It’s not one witch behind your house, some have witches surrounding them everywhere yet they succeed. You are the cause of your problem.

– Bishop David Oyedepo at Midweek Communion Service || Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland.

EVERYTHING ABOUT GOD OPERATES ON A COVENANT PLATFORM. YOU DETERMINE HOW GOD RELATES WITH YOU
WHAT WE WILL NOT BELIEVE, GOD CANNOT MAKE HAPPEN
EVERYTHING ABOUT GOD IS A SYSTEM WHEN YOU OBSERVE THE PROTOCOL. YOU GET THE RESULTS WITHOUT STRUGGLE.
BUILD YOUR FAITH! YOU OVERCOME BY FAITH NOT BY YOUR TITLES.
  • Bishop David Oyedepo at Midweek Communion Service || Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland.

Serving God in truth and in deed guarantees a good old age. Exodus 23:25-26.

  • No one here dies young.
  • A good old age becomes the new identity of your lineage.
  • No pestilence of the day catches up with you.
  • No assault of the wicked cuts short your life.

I don’t have time to die, I am so busy serving my Master.

  • Many are saying bye-bye to every form of sickness and disease tonight.
  • The word of faith coming tonight will secure your triumph, terminate your sweat and your struggles.

Lord Jesus, thank you for another great day, thank you for grace to wait on you today, thank you for answered prayers, take all the praise, take all the glory in Jesus precious name we have prayed.

Knowing what to do is far more valuable than looking for who will help you to do it. John 2:5. To know what He says you should do for every area of our lives is far more valuable than looking around in town and on the net for who will help you do it. Apart from the fact that we are all limited as humans, they may not be available. You can make a call to your most trusted friend in your time of great danger and his battery has gone flat.

It’s not his fault, and he didn’t know until you have gone through that trouble and perhaps lost in that battle. But knowing what to do inside you, you are attacked in the night it responds, in the day it answers. Knowing what to do in every given issue of our lives is far more honourable, far more noble, far more dignifying than looking out for who will help you do it.

One of my mentors who has gone to heaven, one time when we wanted to hold a meeting said to me “open that bag and take as much money as you want for the meeting”. I said I don’t want, he said you mean I can’t give you money? I said don’t be angry. I prefer to learn how to get it. He has gone to heaven for about twenty years now, what if I was depending on him.

Then my destiny would have been dashed. Let’s wake up and take responsibility or we end up as liabilities. What you don’t know, you don’t know and what you don’t know you pay for it. Let’s be knowledge-driven. The knowledge of the truth sets free and sets free indeed. Daniel 11:32. Be willing to take responsibility and then you experience dignity, honour.

Our focus for these Midweek Services is understanding the demands of building your faith. What is it that it takes to build my faith? Faith is a spiritual virtue with unlimited potential for growth. Mark 10:27, 9:23. Faith has the potential to grow exceedingly until you are not interested again. 2 Thessalonians 1:3. Faith never grows on its own just like a child never grows on his own. There are factors that come to play to get a child to grow.

If you ignore those factors you lose the child. A child not fed does not require any attack to die. Lack of food kills the child on his own yet inside that child lies a giant, a global personality but lack of responsibility destroys all of those things. Look at faith like a spiritual baby with potential to subdue nations (Hebrews 11:33-34). Enormous potential but will be equal to zero when not fed. The word is the water, the milk, the meat, the strong meat, the honey and the wine of faith. Whenever the word is missing, faith is openly impotent. Faith is lifeless without the word of faith at work in it. It is not just the food of the spirit, it is the food of faith.

The word is what feeds faith to grow from one level to another. As it grows the level of command changes with the level of growth of faith. Faith is as personal to every believer as our natural heart. Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38. When his faith stops and parks, I have no more pleasure in him. I can’t help anymore. That is why taking personal responsibility is an asset to keep your faith going.

I was telling some Pastors that the problem with us in ministry is that we think we are talking to people, it’s God talking to us including the pastor. Keep your faith alive. They don’t use Pastor’s title, Deacon’s title, M.D.’s title in battle. You overcome by faith not by title. There was a prophet in scripture that was indebted until death killed him. What killed that man was debt. The wife went straight to the prophet “please help me” and she came out of it gallantly. Let’s awake and take responsibility.

I have this simple analogy that might help us, you know as well as I do that no one can breathe for you. You better keep your breath going by building your faith to be stronger and healthier by the day. No one can eat on behalf of another, even though two of you are one flesh. Everyone needs something in his stomach. You can’t embrace each other and then you transfer food to him. Each one must eat to keep his breath going.

There are all personal responsibilities. All these ‘Papa pray for me’ is not the issue. Are you okay? Is your faith okay? What are you doing to make it okay? No matter who prays without your faith it doesn’t go in. No one can exercise on your behalf. You are a sportsman and early in the morning you are on your bed snoring “Yes! My partner is exercising”. You can’t use your partner’s exercise to go and engage in the contest.

Paul was a man that lived on the word and a man of usual exercise. Acts 24:16. You eat to develop your physical body, you exercise to keep it fit. Can anybody run a race and they call you the winner? He ran on your behalf. It takes your own leg to run the race where you wish to win the prize. Can anyone write an exam? If they are caught, straight to the prison. It is important to wake up and take responsibility, it is the only way to keep triumphing without tears.

  • No one here will miss it in the name of Jesus Christ.

What we will not believe, God cannot make happen. It is a covenant-keeping God. We receive from him according to our faith. Nothing works in Nigeria so he took his leave, it won’t work anywhere else without your faith. If you don’t believe in Kingdom advancement prayer, then your advancement is not in view. Your advancement and my advancement is guaranteed when we believe in the interest of his kingdom. Draw near to me, I draw near to you. You advance me, I advance you. Prayer is in your room so you don’t have to be ashamed or ‘disashamed’. You lock your door, you sleep if you want. Inviting people does not need any experience, it’s in your nature since primary school. If anything is of value to you, inviting people to come and share of it is not an inconvenience, it’s a delight.

Our mission is all about wiping away tears from all faces in all facets of life. I saw them crying and He said it was not so from the beginning, go I want to wipe away tears off their faces. The things we are doing here are not copied from anywhere. It is as sent by signals from heaven. I once told you a story of when my grandmother forgot me in the room and went to the market. Everybody in those days went to the market on market days, I shouted, I cried no one heard me. I used my feet to start hitting the door out of anger, and had blisters all over. When I didn’t hear any sound I just slept. I was in captivity that day. So I know the meaning of open doors. It was an experience, not theoretical. My grandmother carried her hand on her head that she locked me inside the room. I won’t tell you about the ventilation of the room. I slept, many have slept behind closed doors,’ if this is the way my life will end let it end’.

Faith is a product of spiritual understanding of the truth – revelation. It grows exceedingly by spiritual illumination. Light is in degrees, you have candlelight, you have 60 watts, you have fluorescent light, now you have neon light. In the natural, we have moonlight, starlight and sunlight, they are not the same. We have these two levels of insight, one is revelation (John 1:5). The next one is illumination (John 1:9). Fasting is the gateway by heaven’s agenda to moving from the level of revelation to illumination. Isaiah 58:8. A breaking forth of light is one of the core benefits of fasting. Fasting gives you access into that realm where you are a moving light, darkness sees you and flees.

Paul was a moving spiritual illuminant. He just lights everywhere he enters. That is why the stomach pains people when they want to fast, Satan is scared of where they are going. The Church Growth which we are swimming in today as a commission came out of the crucible of prayer and fasting. Lord, why is this Church not growing? We didn’t even know what to pray about. The first day there was no sound, no voice. We continued the foolishness. On the third day, we continued and He came to me “stand up and follow me” live. Then He opened up the mystery behind Church Growth in a jiffy.

I have read quite some books on prosperity, you can always preach what you have read but I don’t think I have found it. What is it that makes it to work? Three days of prayer and fasting and light broke out. Outbreak of light is a product of raising an altar of prayer and fasting on every issue of interest to you. So I know where to go when there is a blackout. You don’t build your faith by just confessing, you build it by taking responsibility for growing it. It won’t grow by itself.

Biblical examples of men and women who engaged prayer and fasting for accessing revelation – Daniel. Daniel 10. We saw how he engaged in fasting to understand the agenda of God. God responded by saying “I heard from the first day but there was this Prince of Persia that withheld the answer” and the answer came because the fasting won’t stop. You can clear every agent of darkness standing in the way. Total health is your right in redemption, clear off the barriers that won’t let you see it. Breakthrough is your right in redemption, fruitfulness is your right in redemption. The fruit of the womb is your heritage that is what the Bible says. You are not struggling to be remembered by God, he already packaged that in your inheritance. You don’t need that inheritance in heaven anyway, you need it here.

Daniel 9:2.
The only way to build your faith is to feed it with the word of God. Now, he needed light to deal with a particular situation and heaven broke through for him.

No 2 example that is very close to us is Paul the Apostle. He was a man of books. He was in fastings often (2 Corinthians 11:27, 6:5). We work the growth of our faith out or it never grows.

  • No one here shall be left behind.

We all know that when light breaks out, darkness parks out.

  • You never suffer the torment of darkness anymore.

Everything about God is a system when you observe the protocol. You get the results without struggle.

Lift your two hands and ask God for grace to take responsibility for building our faith. Lord engrace me to take responsibility in building my faith by your word and exercising my spiritual muscle through prayer and fasting as you open me up to realms of outbreak of light.

Nothing gives value to our redemption like faith.

  • This is one strange year, positively so in everyone’s life.
  • You won’t miss this package reserved for you this year.

The Lord speaking to me said some are asking if Matthew 6:33 works, why is it not working for everybody. Does healing work in my kingdom? Why is it not working for everybody? Not everybody receives and believes it. Is prosperity working in the kingdom? Yes! Is it working for everybody? No, because not everyone believes and receives it.

Every word I speak works for whosoever believes. Nothing works in your life on its own without your conscious engagement with it. Does success work in the Kingdom? Yes! Why is it not working for everybody? It only works for those who believe in it and work it out. You never find an idle man who succeeds, it is not known in the natural and you can’t find it in the supernatural. Only diligent individuals ever get distinguished in their pursuit. Stop casting aspersions on me, I am not the one responsible for where you are.

  • No one here shall be left behind.

If you won’t pray, God has no right to answer. Complaining and asking is not the same. Obey me and you say I will not listen. Everything about God operates on a covenant platform. You determine how God relates with you. I determine how God relates with me.

Stop blaming God. God is not your troubler. It’s not one witch behind your house, some have witches surrounding them everywhere yet they succeed.

Every true servant today ends up enthroned tomorrow. That is God’s agenda. God doesn’t promote Apostles and Prophets, he promotes servants.

  • Any devil that dares you except I am not called, will pay for it.

Prophetic coverings are real, we are not cracking jokes here.

No prophet under heaven, no apostle under heaven has the capacity to break scriptures or to make God do what He will not do. Even God is guided by His word.

  • May everybody come on key this year in a manner that everyone around you will know that your walk with God has received endorsement.
  • I proclaim the blessings of this house on your life.
  • May the blessings of God allocated to us in this house continue to find expression in your life.
  • I declare the termination of every concern of your life.
  • I decree a return of everyone’s peace and joy.
  • No one will have a reason to keep behind closed doors this year.
  • None shall be robbed.
  • Your movement is declared cover.
  • Only good news this year.
