Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide spoke at Week of Spiritual Emphasis, Day 3. He spoke about what he is benefitting from obeying God and read from the book of Hebrews 12:2 which says:
"Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the Author and Perfecter of our faith."
The man of God revealed that he was telling his team in the morning that he had a raw visitation of prosperity encounter on March 22, 1982. "We were still believing God for N3,000 on October 3, 1984. Now with that massive visitation, my salary was N1,386 December 1987," he said. According to him, they have done over 20 million naira in direct investment to soul winning this year. His team had 644 in church last Sunday from our last two weeks' outreaches.
He revealed that he covenanted with God for 140,000 converts this year and they have crossed 128,000. "You don't do what I do, you can't see what I see," he said. The things Jesus began both to do and to teach. If you cannot be impacted by what your leader does, then you can't be impacted by anything. You can't get to that point without first investing ten thousand and then twenty thousand and then thirty thousand and then forty thousand.
He then explained that without a heart for God, you are not going far. "For eyes have not seen, nor ears heard what God has in store for them that love Him". You are not serving the Church, you are serving the Lord. Without a heart for God, you are limited. But the signs and wonders of the Kingdom are for men with an undaunted heart for God. Men panting after God selflessly, delightsomely, enjoyably with His works.
"It's up to you, your choice is what defines your lot," he continued. Choose ye this day who you will live for and then watch out for the difference that is in it. God is not a cheat, He is not a joker. He means what he says and He says what He means. He said that obeying God adds nothing to God, it adds everything to you. It's up to you, these things work; there are many living testimonies in this church today worldwide that these things work.
In conclusion, he revealed that Life is so interesting. Since the time he met Jesus, he made that commitment September 12, 1976; he has never begged and he has never gone hungry, never a burden on any mortal man. He said that he is not an entertainer, nor a motivational speaker; he is a prophet. "I'm speaking to you about what will change your story if you are interested. You can be a founder of a church and be a pauper. God is no respecter of persons or titles. Commit to His instructions with delight; you will find things turning on their own accord," he advised.
