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.

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.
