Pastor Taiwo’s message at the August 23 online service was hinged on Psalm 23. He stated that this Psalm was a measure of the depth of the special relationship that David had with God and that every believer must begin to see himself as being in a personal relationship with God to fully appropriate all of God’s blessings.
Pastor Taiwo noted that the Psalm highlights the nurturing a believer receives from God, the depth of the personal character of God and also enumerates the prophecies of how God deals with His children on earth.
Pastor Taiwo emphasised that all that David wrote in Psalm 23 was a revelation obtained through meditation on the writings of Moses in which God made him see into the future where we are being sanctified and nurtured by God to perfection. He stated that the moment we begin to see God like David saw Him as a covenant Father who knows us and our needs then things will immediately change for us. “Everyone that will meditate on the word of God will get to where David got to”, he said.
Using the parable of the lost sheep to illustrate the depth of God’s love for His children whereby he left 99 sheep to go after one lost sheep; this emphasises God’s devotion to His children and not allowing them go astray. “We have a heavenly Father who will never give up on us and who constantly seeks to restore us,” he said.
He urged the congregation to aspire to be children after God’s heart like David and to fully trust in God as He will never put them to shame.
