Journey To Greatness

The level of greatness cannot supersede the level of your meekness. The meekest Moses was the greatest Moses in the land. Pride comes before fall. If you’re too big to serve God, then you’re too big to experience His promotion. God demotes people and promotes people. He is the lifter and builder of men. “Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.” (Numbers.12:3) “And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.” (Exodus.11:3) “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another” (Psalm.75:6-7)


Reading. If you read today, it’ll show tomorrow. A reader today, a leader tomorrow. Poor leadership in Africa is traceable to poor reading. My people here would say, “someone who does not sit cannot become the leader.” Meaning that only those who sit at their work become leaders. 

Impact. Life isn’t about occupying a seat; it’s about actualizing a feat. It isn’t about your position; it’s about your contribution. It isn’t about your possession; it is about your distribution. It isn’t about what you take; it’s about what you give. Jesus Christ, our perfect example, came for the people. If your business (or career) isn’t adding value to people, it’s irrelevant.

Opportunities. Opportunities are building blocks of which destinies are built. The highway of life is dotted with blocks of opportunity. Yesterday is gone forever. No rewind. No replay. Every shell that you don’t pick at the seashore goes back to the sea. Opportunity lost may never be regained. The best way to maximize opportunity is to make a timely move. 

Serve God. Every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God isn’t a user of men; He blesses people. You’re not working for God; you’re working with God (you are partnering with God). In an earthly partnership, every active partner is entitled to a dividend; in the same vein, kingdom partnership guarantees you supernatural rewards. Serving God does not reduce people but expands them. Nothing remains worse serving God and the interest of His kingdom. 

“And behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every man according to his work shall be” – Revelation.22:12

Choice. Life’s a choice. Your choice in life determines your lot. We live in a kingdom of choices, not chances (life is practical, not mystical). Your choice is your right in this kingdom. Constitutionally, there’s freedom of choice. Nobody can choose for you – the aces are in your hands. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his life. Don’t blame God; blame yourself. Don’t question God; question yourself. If you point one finger to your parents or brothers, the remaining four fingers point to you.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” – Deut. 30:19

Understand your identity. Nobody knows you better than yourself. No matter natural men opinion about you, their view is their view. Your true picture can be found in the scripture. You are a special breed and peculiar being. But ye are a chose generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” (1Peter.2:9)You belong to a royal family which is the family of Christ. You are a glorious son and daughter of God. You are not meant to be pitied; you are meant to be envied. Stop living pitifully; start looking beautiful. Your destiny in Christ is an envious destiny. God has predestined your destiny for glorification.

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” (Romans. 8:29-30)

For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.” (Gen. 26:14)

Therefore, I don’t care what a mortal man said about you, your true identity is rooted in the scripture. you’re a glorious child of God; you’re beautifully and wonderfully made. Your destiny is an envious destiny. “When men are casting down, we shall be saying there is lifting up.” When men are cast down, then thou shall say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person,” (Job.22:29)

Godliness. According to a common proverbial statement, If you can’t beat them, join them. That statement is satanic. You can’t beat them by joining them. otherwise, you’ll remain under them. choose to be different.

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” – Dr. Seuss

By choice, Daniel and Joseph reigned. Daniel would rather die than defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat. Joseph had already seen himself on the throne, and he wouldn’t allow his destiny to be trashed in Potiphar’s house; he knew that the house of Potiphar was only a passage. Your journey to greatness begins with Godliness.

30 lessons in 3 Decades

30 lessons in 3 decades

The Bible says, and the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him (Luke.2:40, NIV). At 30, Joseph became a prime minister. At 30, David became a king. At 33, Jesus accomplished His mission and was enthroned. The period of 30s is the period of enthronement. I believe this new phase of life is my phase of enthronement.

Clocking 30 in December 2020 had made me sit and reflect on life lessons and wisdom I have gained during my 3 decades of existence. Below are the 30 life lessons coming from the fountain of God’s wisdom.

(1). Your life is your choice; your choice is your destiny. We live in a kingdom of choices and not chances. Your choice determines your lot in life. The ball is in your hand.

(2). People should be allowed to follow their dreams.

(3). Don’t be conformed to this world (Romans. 12:2) means don’t allow traditions to dictate your destiny. Don’t let anyone map out your destiny. Don’t allow anybody to suffocate your dream unwittingly. Choose your path and follow your dream.

(4). Aspire. Aspire. Aspire. Always strive for a greater height. Even when you’re growing old, never stop dreaming.

(5). Don’t be afraid to say no if where people are leading you is not where God is leading you. We must hear from God by ourselves as to what to do with our life.

(6). You have the right to the existence of humanity. Nobody is born to be deprived. We are a people of equal destiny. Before God, we have equal weight. There is no difference between the Jews and the Gentiles. “Black does not connote lack.” – Oyedepo

(7). The narrow road is where lesser people thread. In most cases, the only person you might meet on the road might be Jesus because that is where He threads.

(7). Let your consciousness leads you; let the Holy Spirit directs you.

(8). Never sell your life. Work hard to create a place for yourself in space. Always strive for self-reliance and success.

(9). “If wishes were horses, all beggars would ride.” – Oyedepo. Refuse to become a beggar. If you are not a giver, you cannot prosper.

(10). Whatever you don’t earn adds no value to you.

(11). Applied revelation is the only guarantee of our change of position.

(12). You cannot go beyond the information at your disposal. The brighter you see; the faster you go.

(13). People in this part of the world celebrate their dreams. Information is the currency of destiny.

(14). The know-how of each one generates the results that they get.

(15). Life is not about what you take, but what you give.

(16). Life is not about your position, but your contribution.

(17). Godliness is the pathway to greatness. Your journey to greatness begins with godliness.

(18). Our limited destiny is unlimited in scope. Jesus was sent to be great. And He sent us to be great as His father sent Him. And He except us to do greater works than His.

(19). Loving Him above all else is what qualifies us to be espoused to Him (to become His husband). You love your spouse. Well, that’s great! But love God above all.

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.-Mark.12:30.

(20). We are redeemed as assets and not as liabilities.

(21). We are redeemed as blessings and not as burdens.

(22). Jesus has fully paid the price for your and my sicknesses and diseases on the cross. So, sickness has no legal right on us anymore.

(23). The higher your kingdom dream; the greater your coast of blessings (Mathew.6:33). Things that others are running after run after you when you focus on God’s kingdom.

(24). You are what you think and say. Your mind is the gateway to your life. Mind what you allow to stay on it.

(25). Serving God does not decrease people; It expands people. Serving God is not a waste of time. God is not looking for who to use; but who to bless.

(26). The more you reference God; the more He honors you. Taking God for granted will make you grounded in life.

(28). Praise expands people. Multiplication is a product of appreciation (Jer 30:19; John.6:6).

(29). “If don’t take responsibility you would die as a liability.” – Oyedepo. Any man that does not work should not eat. Faith is not a cheap talk; it’s hard work.

(30). God is not slow. He makes everything beautiful in its time. You can’t climb a tree from the top. You need patience. You need endurance. Habakkuk. 2:3.

Now you have it. Those are the 30 lessons and wisdom I want to share with you. Hope you are blessed. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (Proverbs.4:7).
