Pastor Taiwo @ Sunday Service
In continuation of the message he started the previous Thursday, Pastor Taiwo at the July 26 Sunday service said that decisions are either influenced by God for good or by the devil for bad and that whatever decision one makes affects his or her life as well as that of their descendants. This is why, according to him, God is interested in the path of life and decisions believers make because He doesn’t want them to walk in vain. “God wants to be involved in the path you take and that includes the decisions and choices you make because He wants you to have a glorious ending,” he said.
Speaking from Proverbs 3:5-6, Deuteronomy 30:19 and Philippians 2:16, Pastor said that choices have consequences but that when believers have an unwavering trust in God and acknowledge Him in all their ways, their choices would always be influenced by God. This, he noted, would help them avoid making bad decisions due to internal and external pressure as well as pride of life. In his words, “It doesn’t matter how far gone you’ve been, you can still make one positive decision that would change your life forever. Make it a habit of trusting and acknowledging God and see how your decision would be positive and impact your generations.”
He then urged them to allow God’s words dwell richly in them as this would guide them on how to know God’s mind for them, thereby putting Him first in all they do. “You can start to have that better life with the knowledge of God’s word. Don’t assume; always seek His view on any issue of your life,” he said.

Pastor Taiwo @ Thursday showers
Life is full of challenges and humans will always have to make decisions as long as they live. But the wisdom to make the right choices in times of challenges is available in God and can be gotten by those who allow Him lead and guide them in such decisions. These were pastor Taiwo’s words to the online participants at the July 23 Thursday showers service.
Speaking from Proverbs 3:5-6, Pastor Taiwo said that though God is sovereign, He still respects the will of men, noting that He will never force man in making choices. He further said that trusting God and having confidence in Him are vital ways of making the right decisions in life. This, he noted, saves one from conceited knowledge and pride of self-sufficiency.
Involving God in life’s decision making, according to Pastor Taiwo, means to recognize God’s presence in one’s life, commit one’s way to Him, have a relationship with Him and desire to allow Him journey with one. “To trust Him is to keep every other possible options aside and focus on His counsel,” he said.
He therefore encouraged them not to believe the lies of the devil but to trust completely in God because He will never forsake them once they acknowledge Him. “God will never forsake you no matter what is happening but you need to allow Him help and guide you to make the right decision in the challenges of life. This will make life easy for you because you’re being guided by the One who knows everything,” he said.
