The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC), Ilupeju, Lagos, has said God does not work according to human order but by His divine agenda.
The church made this known through Pastor Akin Osinbajo while ministering during the Sunday second service of April 23.
Taking his Bible reference from 1 Samuel 16:1–13, the clergyman who also looked at the status of David, the last born among the eight children of Jesse, declared that God breaks order to achieve His counsel.
Reading Psalm 78:65–71, the man of God re-echoed David’s supernatural lifting by God beyond the scope of his qualification.
Following that scripture, he made prophetic declarations to the congregation that God will deal with all enemies while breaking protocols towards establishing His purposes.
The cleric exhorted that there would always be enemies to be confronted with.
Pastor Akin Osinbajo, however, said the assurance is found in Psalm 23, where God declares His capacity to do His will, the enemy notwithstanding!
The clergyman declared that having the right heart (purity) to access the prepared place is critical.
According to him, “The love of God and constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit are the ways to ensure that the heart is right.
“You must love God. Text Him and be conversant with Him like the person you love”.
He explained that diligence in worship, consistency in prayer, and total obedience to the Word of God are critical to fulfilling the provisions available to every believer.
The cleric admonished that decency, cleanliness, kindness, generosity, and character are critical to attaining the lofty heights ordained of God for His children.
Quoting Exodus 23:20-22, the man of God espoused, “The angel at that time was representative of the Holy Spirit in our lives today”, even as he stressed the need to be conscious of His power and capability to arrive at desired destinations.
The preacher advised that each believer must be conscious of His presence, depend on Him, and not grieve or be disobedient to Him to arrive at the prepared place.
While bringing his message to a close, he read from Daniel 10:12, citing the example of Daniel, who demonstrated absolute faith in God even when the situation was hopeless.
In addition, he brought to the remembrance of the congregation the trial of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel 3:5–6; and 3:19-25 in their Babylonian days.
The clergyman further admonished that it is crucial to remain focused on God, not wavering in faith towards Him.
“It should be established that it is never over for anyone who trusts absolutely in God”, he added.
