YOU ARE NEVER ON THE LOSING SIDE WITH A GIVING HEART.
NOBODY LACKS WHAT HE GIVES, PEOPLE ONLY LACK WHAT THEY KEEP.
IF YOUR HEART IS AFTER BEING A BLESSING, YOU CAN’T LACK BLESSING.
IF YOUR MOTIVE IS GODWARD YOU WILL NEVER BE IN WANT.
YOU CAN’T HAVE GOD AS YOUR MOTIVATION AND STILL SUFFER FRUSTRATION.
YOUR PASSION CAN’T BE TOWARDS GOD AND STILL BE IN LACK AND WANT
– Bishop David Oyedepo || 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting Day 8 || Youth Chapel || 16th January 2023 || Part C
Nobody lacks what he gives, people only lack what they keep. Those who know their God, they shall be strong and they shall do exploits. “I will give him to you all the days of his life” and he did. You saw the way they took that boy and handed him over to Eli and God began to speak through that boy on the spot. Direct, genuine gift from God.
That is what you will have. There is no blessing from God that will constitute a weight on your life but a refreshing. Every blessing will move you forward.
So she had number 2, number 3, number 4 and number 5. Give me a man, okay I will add more to it. Seek ye first my kingdom and I will add other things to you. She caught it. Somebody’s story is changing.
Solomon prayed this prayer in his early days when he was God’s darling – 1 Kings 3:5-10. Watch this prayer.
Anything that is Godward will please Him. This boy was dying not to displease God, not to misrule the people. He needed God’s wisdom to judge His people correctly.
The speech pleased the Lord. These things are written for our learning. 1 Kings 3:11-12. The motive was acceptable to God. God was behind the scene in his demand. 1 Kings 4:29,34.
– May the content of your prayer please God.
– May your heart be turned back to God so your specifics will just find straight expressions.
That’s life. What you are asking God for to show others you won’t get. What you are asking to exalt Him will drop with speed. It is your turn. Now we have this commandment that this church will be four times its current size like all our churches in our various nations this year. I don’t believe in all those things.
That is why the things you believe in don’t come to pass because His things don’t move you. I don’t believe that. Nobody is asking you to believe, your opinion is irrelevant to God but learn to respect God and His agenda. Learn to have reverence for God and His purpose.
Did you believe in 75 nations? How did it come to pass? Did you pray for it in your life? Did you believe in 21000 cells being created in one year? He did. Anybody without a heart for God no matter how specific your prayers are, it won’t fly. Let God be at the center of your crave, those things won’t need any cry. I have proved Him, I have found Him so. I have been there by His grace for years and it has never failed once. You can’t have God as your motivation and still suffer frustration. Your passion can’t be towards God and still be in lack and want. We have a right to be specific.
Jesus you have commanded through your promise that this church shall be minimum four times its present size this year to the glory and praise of your name. Confirm your word and at the same time, you are taking responsibility on your part. You are a cell minister, I can’t replicate anymore. We have replicated so many times in the past. Let other young boys be replicating. Well done! New graduate.
God who could multiply this church network twice in one year, don’t joke with Him. 32 years of church planting endeavour beaten in one year, don’t joke with Him. 28 years of cell ministry endeavour doubled in one year, my God!
Don’t judge with Him. So the four times is no big deal. Watch your mouth, watch your thoughts. You are not interested in His thing, He is not interested in your things. This year God will demonstrate interest in all the affairs of your life as you choose to give Him so. Jeremiah 30:19.
Be thankful for the reality of the delivery of minimum four times. Intercede and give thanks. If you are a cell minister, say no! I can’t wait before the end of this first quarter this cell has multiplied. Your passion for God will secure your position in the kingdom.
Well, that is okay, Papa has a way of driving people. It is the word that is driving you. If you despise the word you have made your choice. I am sure you got it right. Anything you truly desire with God behind the scene is guaranteed. With your love for God and the needy around you, it is guaranteed. Anything you desire, with God at the back of the scenes it is guaranteed.
Prayer: lift your two hands and give God thanks for light. Everything you ask now is guaranteed.
I think the revival is taking place. Is there revival in your heart now? Is your soul being revived?
Jesus came to give and He gained everything. You are never on the losing side with a giving heart. If your heart is after being a blessing, you can’t lack blessing. If your motive is Godward you will never be in want. Psalm 34:10.
If you are sure something has broken loose in your life give Him thanks.
