Pastor Taiwo Odukoya @ Sunday Services
Pastor Taiwo at the November 10 Sunday services said that the Word of God is powerful enough to turn any situation in believers’ lives around. He however noted that the Word must mix with faith and be declared boldly in order to produce the desirable results and fruits in all areas of their lives. “You become free and are victorious through the Word of God. You enter divine rest when you believe in and confess the Word,” he said.
Speaking from Mark 44:1-37, he explained that being anointed through the laying on of hands is not enough to become a mature Christian; it takes dwelling regularly on God’s Word. He emphasized that God’s intention is for the revelation of His Word in believers’ lives to produce fruits to the extent that it benefits their neighbours, community, nation and the world at large, noting that the Word of God always produces fruits.
He then encouraged them from John 14:10 to always use the Word to define their lives and situations. “God’s words carry the power of life and death and have divine authority for immediate performance and manifestation because they are directly from God. So always speak life to your situations in the name of Jesus,” he enjoined.
“THE CREATIVE FORCE OF GOD’S WORD”
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya @Thursday Showers
Sharing from Mark 4:35, Pastor Taiwo explained to the worshippers at the November 7 Thursday Showers service that there is never stagnation in God’s Kingdom, noting that there is always a crossing over until maturity is attained. “As a child of God, your life is a continuous process. Increase is part of your DNA,” he noted.
Dwelling on Genesis 1:1-28, he said that believers’ lives would always be very good because that is the promise of God to them. This, he said, becomes their reality when they constantly renew their mind with God’s Word and speak what He has spoken concerning them. “There is no seeing without saying; you will see His blessing when you speak it. God’s Word is a seed, and it is planted when we speak it over our lives and situations.”
He then encouraged them from Proverbs 18:21 to always be conscious of God’s words and promises over their lives and situations and declare them. In his words, “No devil can truncate your destiny. The Lord has given you dominion; your word cannot be questioned by any creature once you walk in this dominion. You cannot be stopped or condemned by anybody’s words except you keep quiet.”
