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.

Digging Around The Youths


If you’re not a worker you’d be a beggar. Things only work for workers. There is no free launch in life, you can’t eat your cake and have it. What you don’t work won’t work – work out your own change of level. Your tomorrow is determined by you. Jesus said, “i must do the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John.9:4). Again and he said, occupy till I come! ( meaning that, do business till I come).

Life is business. Your twenties are the best moments to see the brighter you can see for the brightness of your tomorrow. Time not well managed will be wasted. Time wasted may never be recovered. You think you’re small? At the age of 8, people were already ascending throne in Israel. Jesus already knew where he was going at age of 12 – and he said unto them, how is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that i must be about my Father’s business (Luke.2:49). He was not a play boy. Now, you’re in your twenties, you don’t even know the definition of a vision not to talk about where you’re heading. You can’t have where you’re going and not package yourself dangerously to get there.

In boxing, there is a featherweight (115 pounds/52kg), lightweight (135pounds/61kg), welterweight (147pounds/67kg) and heavy weight (unlimited). The heavy weight are the ‘baba (father)’ of boxing. Before you can be qualified as a lightweight, you must have passed through the level of featherweight, subsequent to cruiserweight (200 pounds/91kg) is heavyweight.  By the time you would have become an heavyweight, your body would have been used to being crushed, and after the referee has counted one, two…., you are already on your feet (bounced back to fight). Why? Because your body has been used to being crushed.

In football, we have under seventeen, under twenty, under twenty-three, etc. People are already watching you at the age of sixteen. You think you are small? You’re already behind schedule. Your mates are already CEO’S in some other countries. This post is to dig around you. Stop being playing boys and girls. You don’t have a spare of life, stop living  rough.

In a sprint, at the beginning of the race you could tell who would win the race. Life is a race, that is what Paul called it: Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain (1.Cor.9:24). There are seasons and time for all things, energy level diminishes with age and those who discovered where they belong on time were the ones who were able to make the most of their lives. You can inherit properties but not status. Your worth is as worked by you (you can’t use the certificate you inherited from your father to secure a job even if your father was a professor, his professorial title doesn’t qualify you for a job). Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house (Proverbs.24:27).

Listen to this: people will not remember you for your title but your name. The value in your name is determined by the impact that you made. We live in a world whereby an army of people are making living while only few are making impact. The few that are making impact are the ones called stars. You’re an eagle, refuse to settle with the ducks. Every genuine child of God is ordained for a flight.
