Pastor Taiwo Odukoya has admonished believers to never forget that God is sovereign irrespective of their circumstances or events that happen to or around them. He said this during his message on Sunday, October 23, at The Fountain of Life Church. “Never forget that God is God despite difficult challenges. No matter what you are going through, He does not change; He will still remain long after those challenges. So, don’t elevate your problems above God,” he said.

Speaking from Isaiah 40: 1; 28–31 and Acts 9, the clergy told the congregation that there are times in life that one tends to ask questions, especially in difficult situations. He assured them that God is ever present and always comes with the Spirit of comfort. “It is natural sometimes to want to ask questions. And even though God will seem to be quiet, He will be saying a lot,” he said.

Pastor Taiwo Odukoya further cited Deuteronomy 29: 29 to note that God lives up to His promises; adding that the just shall live by the promises of His word. “Whatever is revealed is for our blessings, but whatever He chooses not to reveal is His business,” he stated.

He further stated that circumstances do not define believers but the word of God, stating that He gives strength to the weak. “When you think I am at my weakest, get ready. When these questions come bubbling in your heart, make sure you are not judging God by the happenings,” he said.

He concluded his sermon by saying the character of God will never change and cited the example of the woman with the issue of blood who touched the hem of Jesus’ garment despite her situation. He said, “Why will your allegiance change because of your situation? There is a place for the weak, there is a special place for those with seemingly no mind, a special place in the heart of God.”

The service, which started with a powerful praise and worship session and intercessory prayers for the country, the body of Christ, as well as for the Senior Pastor of the church, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, and his family and members of the church, was indeed awesome.



Pastor Taiwo Odukoya @ Thursday showers

Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, who took his pivot scripture for the October 20 Showers Service from the book of Zechariah 3:3-5, explained that the scheme of the devil is to always distract believers from knowing that their experiences in life are always to the glory of God while the breakthrough, blessing, and victory are for them to accrue.

Analysing the story of Joshua, the high priest who was hated by the devil and clothed with filthiness, recorded in Zechariah 3:3-5, the clergy exhorted his listeners to not allow the devil to get them distracted from acknowledging God and His help for them irrespective of their situations, just as Joshua remained steadfast and focused because he knew that the One he represented would never leave nor forsake him.

According to him, Joshua exemplified unusual faith and remained in his priestly activities, though battered and bitter, until the angel commanded the garment to be taken off him. Therefore, Pastor Taiwo stated that when God gives a command, it is always causative and it is as good as done. “God’s command for our breakthrough must be taken by faith to avert unnecessary struggle,” he added.

The pastor further read Psalms 3:3–4 to note that believers need to always remember that the glory of God is always at stake whenever they are going through any challenging situation. In his words, “God’s glory and favour can never be questioned or messed up. And if He is not messed up, then you cannot be messed up. It will eventually turn out for His glory.”situation

He also noted that believers should not look into other people’s situations to define their own reality, adding that the Word of God should be the mirror with which they see their reality.

To cap his message, Pastor Odukoya urged the worshippers to always maintain a grateful heart no matter what happens to and around them.

He said, “In the darkest moments of your life, your attitude must remain that of gratitude to God, acknowledging God as the Creator, who is full of knowledge and wisdom and can never weary.”
