THERE ARE MANY WHO DON’T HAVE ANY BUSINESS GOING INTO POLITICS.
THEY JUST WANDERED THERE. THEY GET BEATEN AND BATTERED; THEY RETURN WOUNDED.
“GOD LED ME”: NO, YOUR APPETITE LED YOU.
DON’T GET ME WRONG, GOD CAN PICK A PRESIDENT FROM THIS CHURCH.
THAT PERSON COULD EVEN BE A FEMALE, BUT YOU WILL SEE THE CLEAR HAND OF GOD UPON SUCH INDIVIDUAL.
DON’T TRY TO POSE. LET YOUR ELECTION BE OF GOD AND YOU WILL FIND REST.
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO MENTION TO MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH BECAUSE ANOTHER TIME IS HERE NOW.
YOU BETTER ASK COUNSEL OF THE PRIEST BEFORE YOU TORMENT YOUR LIFE BY YOURSELF.
LET GOD FIND HIS DANIEL AND SEND THEM THERE.
YOU CAN’T MOVE THE DANIELS. YOU CAN’T GET THEM TO LINE UP WITH YOUR EVIL.
THEY WILL STAND TALL FOR GOD AND HE WILL PROTECT THEM.

Now, for the few minutes we have:
GOD’S PLAN FOR OUR LIVES IS IN HIS BOOK
Again, our text is Isaiah chapter 29 verses 11 and 12
The vision of all, not of some, not of most: of all – Isaiah 29:11
That vision is sealed from the unsaved. No matter how intellectually blessed you are, until you are saved, you cannot access the plan of God for your life.
God has no plan for the dead, He only has plans for the living.
There is nowhere where they assign inheritance to the dead. Inheritance is assigned to the living. You can’t plan for the dead, his time is off.
For them that are without: they are mere stories, they can’t access God’s plan for their lives, because they are yet to be saved. Until a man is born again, they cannot see the blessedness of the Kingdom – John 3:3
They cannot see God’s plan and agenda for his life. Therefore, He said, you must be born again – John 3:7.
That is where access to God’s plan begins. You must be born again and He will start unveiling His plan step by step as you go.
Isaiah 29:12 – If you are not willing to learn, you cannot find.
You can be saved for 10 years, 20 years, 30 years: come and learn of Me and you will find rest for your souls – Matthew 11:29
If you are not willing to learn, you cannot find. The plan is there, loaded. The purpose is there, loaded; but
- You must be saved.
- You must be in search of it. “What is your plan for me?” And He begins to unveil them to you one by one.
It is in His plan you have His backing.
So one is helpless without accessing His plan and walking in it. When you find His plan and you are walking in it, He goes before you. As the Shepherd, He goes with you.
“Get on My assignment. Lo, I am with you even till the end of the age”: He goes with you – Matthew 28:20
He walks that path through you. It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to do – Philippians 2:13
He does not only find it for you, He goes before you. He walks through you. He walks with you.
Then He works through you – 1 Thessalonians 5:24. When you come to the wits’ end, He takes over from there.
The most fulfilled believers are those who succeed in locating God’s plan for them and staying there. Let everyone abide in the same calling, wherein he is called – 1 Corinthians 7:20
The beauty of life is in knowing what God has called you to do and staying there: delightsomely, enjoyably.
There are many who don’t have any business going into politics. They don’t have no business, they just wandered there.
They get beaten and battered; they return wounded. They have no business.
“God led me”: No, your appetite led you.
It is important for me to mention to members of the Church because another time is here now. You better ask counsel of the Priest before you torment your life by yourself.
There are those who come to me and I say, “No.
You are missing your road.” They still went ahead and when the… finishes, they now come back.
What office would you win election to now, that I will now need you? No. My eternal Helper is up there and they know if I ever asked a thing from anyone. My access is surer than their temporal stuff.
Allow God to lead you. Don’t let greed and avarice lead you.
Somebody has never helped anybody in his life, what is he going to do in politics?
Never helped nobody, never sent anyone to school, never gave bread to anyone that is hungry: He is going to look for the welfare of people. How many people have you sought their welfare in your life?
All these are facts. They are facts that they won’t look at.
-You won’t miss your road.
You will never know my weakness until I swerve off His plan and I am jealously guarding it.
Your dignity, your security, your destiny, your prosperity, your posterity is in standing where God has put you and enjoying it.
Believers should be there. Yes. Are you the believer? Let God find His Daniel and send them there. You can’t move the Daniels. You can’t get them to line up with your evil. They will stand tall for God and He will protect them.
You don’t need anybody to examine you, just examine yourself. Don’t lie against God. Allow Him to lead you.
The good news is that His plan guarantees a future: a glorious future, an enviable future, the kind that no effort or skill can access.
-You will not miss your steps.
Back in 1977, the Lord said to me, we have that popular scripture here, Jeremiah chapter 29 verse 11 (Reversed Standard Version)
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” – Jeremiah 29:11 (RSV)
In His plan lies our future, not in our plans. Let’s take time to locate His plan and line up with it, then we secure a great future.
-You won’t miss the glory of redemption.
-No one here shall suffer any form of shame or reproach all through the days of your life.
-Don’t get me wrong, God can pick a President from this Church. That person could even be a female, but you will see the clear hand of God upon such individual.
But let it be you. Don’t try to pose. Let your election be of God and you will find rest. You will be unshakable.
Where I am standing now, I am in the centre of God’s will. Don’t mess up with me, satan knows. The backing is too strong. I am doing what He sent me to do. I can’t see any force from hell that can threaten me, standing in the centre of God’s will.
That is the same thing He has for you, to live above the dread and the fear of life, by being in the centre of His will.
Psalm 23:4, 1
You are my Shepherd, I am following your direction, so who will say, “who are you?”
Every gate lifts up their head for you – Psalm 24:7
So when you say, “I am walking in your plan. Whatever lifts their heads for You, lifts their heads for me.”
-You won’t miss God’s centre will for you.
