SHE MARRIED AND WAS DIVORCED IN TWO MONTHS
I PRAY FROM MY HEART YOUR STEPS WILL BE ORDERED AND YOU WILL OPERATE WITH ACCURACY
THERE ARE PEOPLE IN MINISTRY TODAY GOD WANTS THEM TO BE GENERAL OVERSEERS AND THEY ARE SERVING AS ASSOCIATES AND GOD WANTS SOME OTHERS TO BE ASSOCIATES BUT THEY ARE GENERAL OVERSEERS ALREADY – IT WAS THEIR WIVES THAT CALLED THEM!
IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE DELIVERED FROM DEMONS. IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE DEVIL. YOU MUST BE DELIVERED FROM PEOPLE.
- Reverend Biodun Fatoyinbo at COZA Sunday
Go ahead and worship Him. Reach out to Him.
Bless Him, Bless Him, Bless Him, Bless Him.
Yield your spirit in Him, don’t hold back.
El Elohe Israel. We worship You, we Bless You. You are worthy.
You are worthy.
Common go ahead and bless Him if He has been good to you.
Thank You Jesus! In Jesus Precious Name.
Father this morning, we all left our seats to glorify You, to glorify Jesus because You are worthy even if we did this throughout the service, it’s nothing near how good You have been to us.
Many battles You won. The ones we could see and the ones we couldn’t see. The hurdles we crossed. We are a surprise to our adversaries. We are a shock to our enemies.
We just thought to take some time to adore You.
COZA celebrates You!
Thank You Lord Jesus. In Jesus Precious Name.
Only great fools are ungrateful!
Some of us coordinate ourselves as if God has not been good to us.
This is the mood you must be all the time. This is how to catch God’s attention. Amen?
Every Sunday, first service, this is what I will do to you.
You can’t be an ungrateful person. So, through out this service, this is what we shall be doing. You shall be rejoicing.
Don’t let cold catch your praise.
Let’s clap for Jesus as we take our seats.
God didn’t say I am going to touch them or crack them. He says with you, I will break in pieces.
And last Sunday, we were able to identify that God said, you are My battle axe. He didn’t say, you are going to be. He identified you that you are His battle axe.
Even though He has not started breaking in pieces nations, rulers through you. As a matter of fact, you are the one He has been breaking in pieces. And I said the reason why the enemy cannot afford or wait for you to start to break them is because you are a very dangerous weapon in God’s Hands.
You are not dangerous in yourself. But if you allow yourself to be in God’s Hands, you become dangerous.
What will an axe do on the shelf without the lumber man? What will it do?
Arrows may be sharp but if they are not in the hands of the mighty man, a gun can be very effective but if it is not in the hands of a Marksman, it may be shot amiss. And that’s why the question comes this morning.
So, there’s a Divine possibility that God wants to use you to accomplish. There’s something he has brought you to the face of the earth to accomplish, particularly now that you have come to Jesus Christ and now you are now born again.
The question is, What is the process?
Where does He get His axe from before He sharpens it, before He drills it, before He cleans it, before He positions it and decides to use that particular axe to do that particular assignment out of many axes that He has got. What is the process?
How does He prepare them? Where does He get them from?
What process am I supposed to expect to go through as God’s battle axe. I was made for battle. You were made for battle.
‘He teaches your hands to war and your fingers to fight’
What process does He take you through before the nations start to crack at your appearance. Before you start to penetrate this world and begin to winnow down mountains. Before He turns you into a brand new instrument with a sharp teeth.
What process has God budgeted to take you through?
The first thing which is the only thing I am going to approach even in the two services is that when God wants to use somebody and the person will be useful to God, the person must understand what is called Divine willingness.
Some people think and this happens to a lot of people, having pastored for twenty two years, I see it in people that God wants to use.
The moment they start to fast and pray, once pride gets on them and they think that fasting and that prayer can make anything happen.
As a pastor by the grace of God and I am not trying to talk down anybody, I have been visited by many people that people consider to be anointed and consider to be gifted and I could see the puzzle in their lives. Imagine somebody saying, ‘ Pastor Biodun, in my meetings, people get healed.This happened, that happened. O Pastor Biodun, but I don’t have money, I don’t have money to do these things I am asked to do.’
The question I want to ask you is, this thing that is happening in your ministry. Number 1, why is it happening?
Number 2, has God sent you?
If you press on God for a long time, He will give you what you want but Is that what He wants for you?
Israel told God, ‘we want a king’. God said, I am going to be your King. They said sir, ‘ it’s not possible. We are not enjoying it like other nations’.
They kept pressing on God. God said okay. He gave a king. Not too long, Saul began to oppress them. And God said, I warned you. I told you.
The first thing to find out before you start to fast, before you start to press in , before you start to storm everywhere with prayer and say, ‘Use me Lord. Do this for me’.
You can’t use God’s Hands and make Him to make you what He didn’t make you for because other people are doing it.
It’s not enough to be delivered from demons. It’s not enough to be delivered from the devil. You must be delivered from people.
I tell you no lies, I am delivered from people. If I don’t think God wants me to do something, you cannot push me to do it.
The man you are looking up stage, I tell you the truth, I will not lie to you. I am delivered from people. If I don’t think God wants me to do something, you cannot push me to do it.
Why? Israel asked a question and they said, ‘ is it not You that did not follow us to the battle that made us lose the battle?’.
If God doesn’t follow you, you will be shocked that the strength you thought you had is not enough. Church Gist.
They fought Jericho and brought down Giants, the next day they went to a city they were pursued. And Joshua said, ‘ something must be wrong’. He was on his face from morning till evening. By evening God said Joshua stand up, don’t waste your time. Somebody has kept something accursed.
If God doesn’t go with you, you are in trouble.
Moses had opened the Red sea, brought water out of a flinty rock, did incredible exploits in the Hands of God and he was going to fight the Amalekites, he said ‘ God, please I beg You if Your Presence will not go with us, don’t let us go’. Because all the drama and the magic performing is because You are with me.
God with us is a major thing. When God tells you ‘ go, I am with you’. Forget it, it doesn’t matter how many things and how many people that are against you, you are coming back victorious. Anyhow anyhow. You will come back more than Conqueror. Let them throw the hand fan up fifty times. It’s the flat side that you will use to land. Throw it one billion times, the hand fan they used in blowing themselves. Church Gist. It is the flat side that it will use to land. It will not land on the sharp side.
Let the devil come and attack you one billion times, if God is with you. The devil is the same yesterday today and forever. If he failed once, he is going to fail again. As long as God is with you.
So, before you start to say Lord use me or before you start to pursue something. There are lots of people going through pain right now, lots of failed marriages.
Lots of people in ministry, God wants them to be General Overseers and they are associates. God wants them to be an associate, it’s their wives that called them.
Their wives, they will say ‘I want to be mummy G.O’.
Those God called, they still face struggles. You that your wife called…….
I mean, you as a lady, you must be very very careful. From the beginning, Satan came for you.
You are emotional, from the beginning Satan came for you.
You must guard yourself and monitor your feelings and monitor your emotions, monitor what you like.
It may not be the case for everybody but most times somebody wants to be called mama, somebody wants to be in charge.
For your husband to be powerful and you don’t want to be in charge, that means the Holy Ghost is really at work in you. It’s natural because insecurity is the problem of women.
Respect is the problem and honor is the problem of men. You honor a man, you can give him poison. These are our weaknesses and Satan understands it. You must be very very careful.
Somebody came to me and said “but I met him in church”, he promised me this, he is in this church.
So, what happened in this church?
You came to Saturday program and you followed him. The guy dangled a car key he borrowed and you followed him. Have you asked God if he’s His plan for you?
Lots of people that have messed up God’s original plan for their lives because they think they can pray, because they think they are Spiritual.
See, one thousand days fast cannot twist God’s Hand.
You are bragging you have fasted.
And God is saying ‘ Angel Gabriel, when last did We eat?’ that he is using hunger to harass us.
I am telling you. It’s only what God is involved with that you can fast and take out the devil out of the road and the backing of the Lord will be hundred per cent.
There’s nothing that is easy to do like what God is involved with. I can never forget one lady in this church, we said to her, this man you’re about to marry just gave his life to Christ, barely a month. Let him grow, do you know what she told us?
She said Pastor Biodun I am not like you people, if he gives me one trouble, I will give him one thousand. We are not looking for perfect situations.
She ended up not marrying that guy because the guy realized who she was but married someone else. In two months, she was divorced.
So, some of these things that we blame God for and applaud the devil as if he is powerful is because we have not settled down to ask what Divine willingness is.
No matter how you envy someone and how you want to be like them, there is something called a determinate counsel of God. That God has determined about you.
Your purpose is determined. How you end, which is your Destiny, you determine it.
Nobody can make himself what God is not willing to make him. No matter how much they try.
It’s not enough to have a passion for something, it’s not enough to have a desire for something. It must be God asking you to do it.
It’s good to take initiative, very good. Some times you are home and your son says, Daddy should I warm the car? You look at him and say you know, warm it. I didn’t want you to warm it but because you took initiative, warm it. I will come and stand outside with you since you can’t really drive yet.
And you begin to look at that child as responsible. But there are times that you will say, it’s late don’t go out.
No man takes this honor to himself except him that is called as Aaron was called. How was Aaron called?
How was Aaron called?
They said, so you are calling your younger brother. You are making this thing a family thing.
Moses said, bring your rod tomorrow then we will know who God called.
Nobody just wakes up and take up this honor by himself except he that was endorsed like Aaron was endorsed.
I prophesy to you, the last time you allowed the enemy to beguile you is going to be the last in the Name of Jesus.
I pray from my heart, your steps will be ordered. You will operate with accuracy.
You see there’s a syndrome, ” I can do it syndrome” but has the Lord told you to do it?
You know you can’t tar the road in front of this place because you have money. Government needs to give you permission.
Yes you have a good initiative, yes you have good intentions, yes you have the money, yes you have the ability but they need to approve it. If they don’t approve it and you do it, you may end up in trouble.
