When God Leads…


If everybody is lucky why are you not lucky? Don’t mistake faith for luck. There are no lucky men; there are lighted men.

There is a simplicity in Christ that makes the complexity of life to become easy. The devil makes the Word look too simple to believe.

In most cases, what God tells you to do may look too simple; it may look very stupid to believe, but that’s the way out.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Corinthians 11:3).

For instance, they needed wine, Jesus told them to bring water; When Jesus needed to feed 5000 people, He used a lad 5 loaves of bread.

The goal of the devil is to block your access to the light in the word of God. That’s why anything that takes you away from God is destroying you. The devil’s business is to cover your eyes of understanding with the veil of deceptions and lies. Be sensitive. The wicked will do all it takes to make you believe that all the biblical mysteries are mystical.

It works like fire. The Word of God works when you engaged with it; It works when you walk in the light of the scripture; It works when you ‘scripturalized‘ every area of your life.

For instance, plugging yourself into a covenant of tithing consistently will cause the release of supernatural (Abrahamic) blessings over your life and your business.

There are some things that God will never do for you until you have the right motive and maturity to manage them. God needs to trust you before He can entrust you to the wealthiest place of the most high.

If it’s not in your heart, it cannot be in your hand. If you cannot pay tithe when you are earning 100 nairas, you are not the one that will pay it when your income becomes six figures. If you cannot buy the plastic chair for a local church you are the one that will build a synagogue.

One thing is to be blessed; another thing is to sustain your blessings. Some follow have served God for one year but they’re no longer there; some fellows have served God for five years but they’re nowhere to be found while some fellows have been serving God for 50 years and they are still on track with Him. Obedience brought us into the reality of supernatural blessings of God, and it also demands continuous obedience to sustain them (See Deut 28 & James.1:22-25)

King Solomon got the blessing, but he allowed the wealth to take him away from God. Those of you that are into business, because of business meetings, you’ve abandoned God. Are you more executive thanking David? King David was praised 7 times a day and prayed 3 times. If you take God for granted you would be grounded. Nobody ended up at a loss serving God and the interest of His kingdom.

Caleb walked with God to the end and full and entered the land of Canaan. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had a covenant walk with God by complying with the terms of the covenant and the result is trans-generational blessings. Abraham must have taught Jacob how to tithe and Jacob must have taught Isaac. Abraham, a man like a nation; Isaac, a man like a nation; Jacob, a man like a nation. By obedience, Abraham became a symbol of generational blessings.

They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham (John.8:39).

We’ve been taught that faith comes from hearing the word of God. In as much as that’s true, solid faith (trust) comes by hearing from God.

It’s a pity that some born-again Christians do not believe that they can hear  from God themselves. You can’t hear from God and doubt Him. When Moses heard that God had made him a god unto Pahroah, he didn’t approach Pahroah as a man but as a god. At the red sea, Moses was too sure that God was about to show another side of himself because he heard from Him.

Why did you think Abraham complied with all the dangerous instructions that he heard from God? He was dead certain that if he killed his only son, God would wake him up. Faith becomes trust by hearing from God.

When last have you heard from God? God speaks in a still small voice – rowdy people cannot pick it- He speaks to you everyday. Most people miss His voice by expecting Him to speak to them in some unrealistic ways.  Just a few people hear God talking to them directly like the days of old

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord . And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord ; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-12).

In most cases God speaks into your conscience; He also speaks through His words and nature. God can use anything to communicate to you, but you have to be sensitive to know when He speaks. The word of God is a reliable yardstick of measurement to determine whether the voice you are hearing is from God, the devil, or your voice. God does not speak contrary to His words. It’s not God that will tell you to marry an unbeliever because according to His word light and darkness cannot coexist; two cannot walk together except they agree (Amos.3:3).

God doesn’t speak to a deaf ear; He doesn’t show the whole blueprint. Until you obey the first instruction, you won’t hear the next thing – It’s step by step like Rome was built.

When God leads, you are ‘fear-free’ (God’s leading does not tense a man up, It allays all fears and deflates pressure); when God leads He makes provision; when God leads your experience is internal peace within your conscience.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still water. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death , I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me (Psalm.23:1-4).

Life Is A Business

Life is a business (you are either making profits or recording losses). It demands a serious approach to any quest in life to arrive at a glorious result. A business approach to life will always result in an enviable future. At the age of 12, Jesus already knew where He was going. At a point they wanted to make Him a king, He fled to the mountain because that was not where He belongs (See John 6:15).

If you don’t know where you are going, anywhere may look like it. You need to focus to make the most of life. Those who go through many roads may never arrive at their destination. Focus is a principal requirement for an enviable tomorrow.

Serving God is a must (It’s a big-time business!). Jesus said I must be about my father’s business. Until serving God becomes a must your breakthrough testimony is out of view. Those who approach God’s service casually ended up as casualties. Christianity is not a passive religion. Christianity is not a religion; it’s the manifestation of God’s power in the lives of His people.

Knowledge is a fundamental requirement for a glorious future. It’s your know-how about any venture in life that sets the pace for a successful adventure. Eduction gives you a certificate while self-development gives you a future. Michael Faraday did not have the kind of education you have today, yet he was an inventor and a preacher by his commitment to self-development. Don’t approach any venture in life with common sense. A common approach will lead to a common result. There is an organizational structure that will help you to secure your future.

In Africa, we celebrate certificates while in developed nations, they celebrate discoveries. If you stop learning after graduation, you will degenerate. You need current working knowledge to resolve the current situation. Learning is a lifetime adventure. Pick learners are those that have learned how to learn. They are self-motivated and don’t need marks as a motivation to learn.

Information is the vehicle that drives vision. To be informed is to be transformed; to be uninformed as to be deformed – Bishop Oyedepo

Knowledge is the key to dominion. Lack of intellectual property is the reason for your poverty – Bishop Oyedepo

Parents, don’t keep your children (sons and daughters) at home after graduation. The eaglets cannot become eagles while they are still in your nests. Allow them to go out and find a purpose for their life. Don’t make them sit on your laps and baby feed them when they’ve become adults. No matter the quality of education that you give to your children, if they are not spiritual, you’ve lost them. Spirituality simply means scripturality’ (living according to the dictates of the scripture).

Jesus is the sure foundation to anything that requires building. Business is built; marriage is built. Many people do say: “we build this business;” “we build this marriage.” Jesus is the only sure, solid and reliable foundation where anything worth building can be built. Every skyscraper you see doesn’t have the same foundation as bungalows. The quality of the foundation determines the magnitude of what you will build upon.

When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm.11:3)

Creation is a product of strategic planning. God did not look for water after creating fish. The process was logical and sequential. Our God is a God of order. Do you want to supernaturally succeed in your business endeavor? Let your business system be a tithing system (Abraham paid a corporate tithe; see Hebrews 7:2); let it be a righteous driven system. Stop cheating people; stop selling fake products.

The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon (Psalm.92:12).

Health is wealth. Righteousness facilitates health and health lead to exploits.

They that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel.11:32).

Serving God is the greatest asset of mankind. You can’t serve God and be sicked; you can’t serve and be poor; you can’t serve God and be barren; you can’t serve God and die young. Appearing in Zion (church) facilitates strength and strength indicates longevity. No business guru on earth (dead or alive) can offer you these supernatural packages.

They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. (Psalm.84:7)

If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. (Job.36:11)

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfill. (Exodus.23:25-26)

Friend, life is a choice. You are responsible for the outcome of your life. This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. (Deut.30:19) Your choice determines your lot in life. The ball is in your court. If you give your life a chance, you don’t have a chance.
