2). It  guarantees divine health and vitality

Exodus 23:25 KJV
“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.”

A time came that I was still in school, they said that I have typhoid and they gave me plenty of drugs to live on. I said to myself I can never have it, Jesus already took it, He took my place in sicknesses, diseases, pains and bruises on the cross.

And, as a matter of truth Jesus had been healing people long enough, even before the doctor started schooling. Therefore, I disposed all the drugs given to me. That’s was the end of it, typhoid gone and never to return, I have been free since then. Today, I’m the healthiest person on the planet.

Matthew 8:17 KJV
“That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.”

Hear this: faith is not a risk, doubt is a big risk.  Your trust in God will go a long way to bail you out from the torments and afflictions of the devil.

3). Financial Prosperity – All through my school days, I had been pursing after God’s interest, being faithful to my thites and offerings and yet I did not lack anything..I spent closed/over to a million for school fees, feeding, rent and transport. There was no strain in me at getting the money. I enjoyed divine favour on every side.

God can give you wealth but you must acknowledge Him with your thites and other giving platforms. Dive into the covenant of seed time and harvest, giving and receiving and poverty will no longer be your neighbour.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”

Job 36:11 KJV
“If they obey and serve him , they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure.”

4). Open rewards – Seeking after the number one interest of God, which is the lives of the unsaved souls – both on the prayer altar and harvest field –  enhances open rewards (Mat.6:6/9, Jn.15:16)

Matthew 6:33 KJV
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

OBEDIENCE – THE PATHWAY TO SUPERNATURAL REWARDS


OBEDIENCE - The pathway to supernatural rewards

Anything can fail; our obedience to scriptural commandments can never fail. Obedience is the master key to all scriptural rewards. One thing that my Father in Christ normally says is that BE GOD GREEDY. That is if you’re greedy of what serving God offers you’ll not have to be coerced to obey.

Deuteronomy 28:1-3 KJV
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [2] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. [3] Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”

When I entered into university, I came in with academic barrenness, in my first year my CGPA was about 2.82 – I had a carry over then. After seeing all my results in the 1st year, I said to myself NO! NO! NO! Things must not continue like this.

Thank God a new pastor was brought to our church by this moment who unravelled the  mystery of the scripture to us..I’m proud of the man of God. I immediately subscribed Into the idea of obeying God’s Instructions without negotiating. Ever since then I have been enjoying good grades.. By the end of my final year I came out (graduated) with 12A’s, 18B’s and 21C’s SECOND CLASS UPPER DIVISION with a CGPA of 3.54 (I Studied economics). With my engagement in obedience I had experienced a dramatic turn around in my studies.

WHAT ARE THE PRIVILEGES/BENEFITS OF OBEYING GOD’S COMMANDS?

1). It engenders academic breakthrough & excellence –  The testimony above will serve as an example…OH YES! Serving God guarantees your success in school..The Holy spirit is the spirit in us of excellence who will teach us all things, academic inclusive (Jn.14:26).

Joshua 1:8 KJV
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

The three Hebrew boys were so exceptional at their response  to all the enquiries of the king and were found ten times better than the magicians and astrologers. Daniel could dissolve doubts and interprete dreams and the same Daniel had the spirit of HOLY GOD, excellence, and fear of God (The Holy Spirit). Dan.1:17/20

Understanding Stewardship

There are different kinds of stewardships. There is financial stewardship, physical stewardship and spiritual stewardship. Among all, spiritual stewardship attracts the greatest rewards.


It is our tireless engagement in stewardship that yield profitable rewards. There are  diverse platforms for stewardship. Such as:

  • Spiritual stewardship
  • Financial stewardship
  • In services – as, choir, ushering, hospitality, protocol, etc.
  • Physical stewardship

Spiritual stewardship involves your prayer engagement and soul winning involvement. There is ‘prayergelism’ and evangelism. Prayergelism is the act or demonstration of obedience via praying ceaselessly on behalf of the lost souls with a view of getting open rewards in return.

Now, financial stewardship is the demonstration or act of obedience to the instruction of giving with a view of swimming in the realm of abundance. Gen.8:28, Mal.3:10.

In-services are also know as physical stewardship, it is the physical engagement of the saints in ‘Zion’ (Zion means place of worship). This kind of engagement is prone to hypocrisy. This explains while a choir will fornicate yesterday night and sing in the church the following day. Don’t let this shock you as the devil can sing. In-services are very good platform to develop your talents in the church and build your potentials.

Among all platforms of stewardship, the Spiritual Stewardship is the most rewarding. “God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit in spirit and in truth.”Jn.4:24. “It is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, they are life. Jn.6:63. 

Spiritual stewardship is the gateway to a world of spirit. When you enter into the spiritual stewardship, you become a spirit after the order of God. Because ‘like’ begeth ‘like’. God has not called you spiritual, you are not spiritual; you are only spiritually minded but you are a spirit. “ I have said that ye are gods, all of you are children of the most high.” PS.82:6. If your father is a spirit, you also must be a spirit. Therefore, what cannot be found in God must not be found in you. God can’t be sicked so you can’t be sicked. The son of a dog is a dog, the son of a goat is a goat. It follows that the son of God is a god. Spiritual stewardship launches you into the class of God. When you engage in spiritual stewardship, you operate just like God. Miracles, healings, Freedom from satanic oppression, success, deliverances, prosperity become the order of the day.

What are Kinds of Spiritual Stewardship

  1. Prayergelism – Kingdom advancement prayer is a vital area of spiritual stewardship that churches of today need to start emphasizing. Most of our prayers are self-centered. Thou, I’m not against requesting from the lord since it is biblical. But, it is funny the way many believers placed demands in God. In Mat.6:9, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.”  “But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and is righteousness; all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33. Until you turn most of your prayer requests into a platform of service, open rewards are out of view. Pray for the lost to be saved from all satanic oppressions. Your family member who has gone astray, pray for his return to Christ, pray for the occultists, drunkers, smokers, assassinator, corrupted politicians, and for the peace of your nation at large. These are the kinds of prayers that moved God. Some whom you have prayed for will appear in church without preaching to them.
  2. Evangelism – Soul winning is the other mandate given by God to every believer. Now that you have prayed for them, reach out to them and invite them to church. And follow them up in order to ensure they are rooted in the kingdom. “Ye have not chosen me but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go out to bring forth fruit, and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you ask my father in my name He will give unto you.” Jn.15:16

As we have know that there is nothing that we do in Christ that is a waste. Serving God is not a waste of time; God does not use people, He blesses people, He expands people. He is a God of addition. He is a God of multiplication. Mat.6:33, Jer.30:19. Nothing remain worse serving God.

God’s Commands Are For Our Benefits


God has not commanded us in order to grieve us, but He has commanded us in order to bless us. God has not commanded us in order to punish us, but He has commanded us in order to polish us. God’s commands are not meant for our punishments, God commands are meant for out ‘polishments.’ God is not looking for who to use, God is looking for who to bless. “And it shall come to pass,  if thou shalt hearken diligently unto voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shall hearken unto the voice of the lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt  thou be in the field.” Deu.28:1-3.

God does not speak to impress people, God speaks to impact people. Things that will impress you will not impact you, things that will impact you will not impress you. Stop suspecting God as if He is stealing from you. God does not decrease people, God expand people. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteouusness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33 God does addition, God does not do subtraction. God does multiplication does, God does not do deduction. “And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they not be small.” Jer.30:19.

Deprogram yourself from all cultural, tradition, negative orientations and idiosyncrasies and embraced the truth.

Listen to me, You can’t serve God and be sick. “And ye shall serve the lord your God, and he will bless your bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from your midst.” Ex.23:25. Sicknesses and diseases are illegal, they are not permitted in your body. Jesus already took them. “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sickness.” Mat.8:17. He already took them just like the place of Barnabas on the cross.

Hear this: You can’t serve God and be poor. Poverty is in the list of disobedient. “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure.” Job.36:11.

You can’t serve God and be cursed. The moment you enter into the commands, your family lineage changed into Christ. What does not look like Jesus must not be found in you. Welcome to ‘Jacobias’ (Jacob) and Israelites family “Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, what hath God wrought.” Num.23:23. You don’t have to go to Isreal,  Rome or Jerusalem before you become part of this great family. All need to do is to plug yourself into the commands by doing what the word says. “But be ye the doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James.1:22

It Works Like Fire


It works like fire. Obedience to the commands works than anything else. People rarely talk about it, but it works like fire. The churches of God need to start talking about our entrance into the word. Serving God is a work and not just a talk. When the word enters you, you need to enter/jump/dive back into it. This is the only way it works. “But be ye the doers of the word and not the hearers only, deceiving your own self. For if any be a hearer of the word and not a  doer. He is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth himself and goeth his way, and staightway forgeth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty. Continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer but the doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deeds.”James.1:22-25. Ever since I have been plugging myself into the commands, I don’t any longer know the address of darkness. Before darkness was my neighbour. But you know what, darkness does not struggle with light. Darkness is a absence of light. When you turn light on, what does darkness do? It vanished immediately off course. There is no middle, it either you are in light or you are in darkness. Do you know what happens in light. All things work. All things excluding nothing. “All things work together for good to them that love God.” Rom.8:28. It is ignorance to mistake your condition for your portion. Your lots in Christ is determined by the level of your obedience to His commands. “Behold I come quickly my rewards are with me to give any man according to his work.” Rev.22:12. One trillion demons cannot hurt me, this is not pride, it is the knowledge of the truth. “Far above all principality, and powers, and might, and dominion...” Eph.1:21. I am far above any demons or devil. It won’t take me much effort to destroy a winch. This is not empty boast, it is the knowledge of the truth. “Behold I give you power to tread upon scorpion and serpent and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Lk.10:19. Those who lack ‘faith’ will accept ‘fate’. Until you enter into the commands, you are still subjected to all satanic assaults and molestations. The devil can afflict you with any sickness of his choice. Poverty can still become your closet friend. You don’t have choice but to settle for failure. Serving God genuinely by obeying his commands as a way of life, works like fire. Nothing can go down again when you obey. Our God is a God of addition. Our God is a God of multiplication. Mat.6:33, Jer.30:19
