Using the account of the axe head that fell into the river as Prophet Elisha’s servants were cutting trees to make a bigger tent as recorded in 2 Kings 6:1-7 as illustration, Pastor Taiwo at the May 19 Sunday service said that challenges always arise at the point of expansion or increase. According to him, there wouldn’t be problems if there is no expansion. “It is at the point of increase that troubles arise,” he said.

Corroborating it with Acts 6:1, Pastor Taiwo said that the devil wouldn’t come after a believer if there is nothing to steal, kill or destroy from him or her. But God, he noted, is and will always be ready to save His own and make them expand. “You don’t need to despair when the devil is after you. Rather, rise up in joy because your increase has come,” he said.

Pastor Taiwo then implored the congregation to keep their gaze on Jesus Christ for therein lies their restoration and increase. “It doesn’t matter what you’ve lost of what is hindering your increase in life, there is going to be a recovery for you in Jesus’ name,” he said.
