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.

Understanding The Wonders Of Prayer And Fasting Lifestyle


understanding the wonders of prayer and fasting

Prayer is a dialogue and not a monologue (a dialogue between humanity and divinity). As we’ve all known from our English class that a communication process is incomplete without a feedback. In the same vein, a prayer process is incomplete without an answer. As a matter of fact, there is not unanswered prayer in the scripture.

Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. [18] And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit (James.5:17-18)

God is not an idol wait for an answer when you pray to Him

What is fasting?

Fasting implies fastening your body to edify your spirit. Both prayer and fasting are God’s commandments (Mathew.6:6/17).

Pray without ceasing (1Thes.5:17)

Why must I engage in prayer and fasting as a lifestyle?

a). Because prayer and fasting are the proven platforms for spiritual exercise and only charged people can change their world (only charged people can become change agents).

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come (1Timothy.4:8)

b). Because a lifestyle of prayer and fasting is the surest way to keep our fire burning on the altar.

And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings. [13] The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it

shall never go out. (Leviticus.6:12-13)

keep the fire on the altar ever burning

c). Because the house of God is the house of prayer and the house of prayer is YOU. The scripture says, Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves (Luke.19:46). We are God’s building (1 Cor.3:9). In addition, a praying church is a growing church and a growing church is a praying church. Prayer doesn’t only change things but also changes people (Luke.9:29). There are no growing ministries, blogs, businesses, but there are growing ministers, bloggers, business men respectively. In case you’re a minister reading this, the secret of church growth is kingdom oriented prayers (Mathew.6:9).

d). Because the platform of prayer and fasting is the platform for supernatural empowerment. Supernatural empowerment is what causes stars to rise.

And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, [36] And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! For with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. [37] And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about. (Luke.4:33, 36-37)

Before Jesus went to the wilderness to fast for forty days and nights, He had no identity, (He used to be known as Jesus “the son of carpenter”). But when He returned from the wilderness, He returned with a new identity, power and authority. Demons cried out His name and left their victims. People began to exclaim, what manner of man is this! We’ve seen strange things today! Even the wind obeyed Him! We’ve never seen it in this fashion! (Mathew.8:27, Luke.5:26). He was announced. Same way God will announce you to the world around you, no matter your background.

If supernatural prosperity is your immediate desire, dive into giving, but if power over all powers of darkness is your immediate desire, dive into prayer and fasting.

e). Because engaging in a prayer and fasting lifestyle causes all mountains to give way. Mountains represent problems, afflictions, and barriers. Understand this, there are some certain mountains that won’t bow out until you enter or dive into prayer and fasting.

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. [21] Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting (Mathew.17:20-21)

an help from man is prone to failure but an help from God will never fail

f). Because the platform of prayer and fasting lifestyle is the cheapest way to obtain freedom from all satanic oppressions.

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To lose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? (Isaiah.58:6)

g). Because prayer and fasting lifestyle enhances our speed in life. It facilitates light, which in turn propels speedy journey in every sphere of life.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).

God is not an idol wait for an answer when you pray


Final thoughts

  • Prayer is a conversation between humanity and divinity – there must be feedback.
  • 70% of our prayers are answered by what God shows us.
  • What God shows us makes us a show.
  • Because prayer and fasting is a platform for spiritual exercise, you must engage in it as a lifestyle.
  • if you’re not engaging in prayer and fasting as a lifestyle, the fire of revival would die in you.
  • Because you’re God’s building and the house of God is a house of prayer. Anchored on this reason, engage perpetually.
  • When you engage as a lifestyle, God will empower you, which causes your star to rise.
  • You need to engage either in the chosen fast or inspired one because mountains remain at the spot until you dive into prayer and fasting.
  • Darkness, frustration, confusion and stagnation become the order of the day expect you buy to the idea of a prayer and fasting as lifestyle.
