The Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, TFOLC, Taiwo Odukoya, has revealed that Christians can get God’s blessings by making good decisions.
He stated this at the Thursday Showers service, which was held on September 22, 2022.
Referencing Psalm 118:24 and Mark 11:23, the clergy provided more insight into the importance of what believers say, noting that their confessions without distraction attract God’s backing.
The Senior Pastor said, “We live by our decisions. If you choose what God doesn’t expect you to choose, you will suffer.”
Pastor Taiwo further stated that the mind is also vital in decision-making. The worst abuse of humanity is someone’s life being controlled by other things without the person having control over such things.
In his words: “the devil cannot have you dominated until he has captured your mind. We are created for choices.
“The battle you don’t lose in your mind, you can’t lose in the physical; the battle your spirit man doesn’t give up on, you can never lose.”
Referring to Apostle Paul in Romans 14:17, Pastor Taiwo defined the Kingdom of God as righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Also, speaking from Galatians 5:22, he mentioned that understanding God’s Word, recognising the Holy Spirit in one’s life and believing and declaring the words are ways believers can actualise and activate joy. “To choose joy is to choose strength,” he said.
The cleric encouraged the worshippers to always rejoice in the Lord irrespective of their circumstances and to declare God’s words over their lives.
According to him, “Joy is the access to the strength of God. No matter the situation, joy will forge a way through for you. So, any time you make the declaration of joy, the devil hears, and creation hears too.”
