I Didn't Pick One Course For Any Of My Children - Bishop David Oyedepo

Bishop Dr. David O. Oyedepo's spoke at the 16th Convocation Ceremony of Covenant University, Ota. He titled it ‘Looking Ahead’ to the Graduating Students and he revealed that performance in every field of human endeavor is a function of preparation. No one can ever arrive at a future that he cannot see and no one arrives at a future that he is not prepared for. Life without a vision is an adventure in frustration.

He said that every true vision is about value addition and not possession. He then revealed that all of their four biological children are graduates and two of them have their Ph.D.D. degrees. "I remember asking them when they were going to the university ”now which area of life do you see yourself making your utmost contribution? Let it be what determines what you go for," he said.

However, the man of God revealed that he never chose one course for any of them, they all excelled in their various areas. You need to be purpose-driven to live a meaningful life. He said that the earlier you define your purpose for living, the better, the more meaning and more impactful your life will become.

He further explained that in looking forward, it is important to note that vision is a discovery of one’s assignment on earth. It’s not about what you want to become but what task you are here to undertake. Nothing is more meaningful than connecting with that reality. It’s not about what one wants to become, but what task one is here to undertake, the contributions one is out to make, the value he is here to add, and the solution he is set to provide.

in conclusion, he said that he wants to believe that the platform through which God has taken you through will continue to yield fruits in your adventure in life. Remember we are called here to raise an army of reformers on a mission to repair the waste cities and the desolation of many generations. Therefore brace up and begin to think solution. Go and add value to your world.
