Pastor Taiwo Odukoya started his message at the October 6 Sunday service by reading the theme scripture for the month—Isaiah 61:7 and stated that it is important to always be conscious of what God is saying in order to continually walk in the realities of His provisions.
Dwelling on Mark 4:35– 41, he declared: “I am here this morning to silence some winds forever,” stating that it was critical for believers to be careful what they give their attention to. Pastor Taiwo noted that understanding and focusing on God’s instructions and promises will always lead to victory.
Pastor Taiwo also encouraged the congregation to refuse to be distracted by the storms of life but to consistently abide in the Word in order to live in the fullness of God’s promises. “At no time should you, a Christian, model your life or character after the world but only after Christ,” he stated.
