Pastor Taiwo told his online viewers at the September 10 Thursday Showers that believers should not allow the seemingly negative circumstances of life determine their attitude and songs to God; noting that a bad season in a believer’s life doesn’t negate the faithfulness, loving-kindness and goodness of God. “No matter the situation, you ought to always remember the wonders of God and His faithfulness and then begin to sing a song that shows forth His glory,” he said.
Speaking from Psalm 77:1-10, Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 2:1-2, Pastor said that when believers begin to allow the mindset of the world dictate their reactions, actions and attitude, they would definitely be swept by the experiences of the world. This, he noted would not make them see the reason to praise God, even in bad times.
In his words, “You can be different and not conform to the ways of the world of complaining and murmuring. Be transformed in your thought and change your song. Rather than continuously meditate over your problems, start to meditate on the goodness of God to you in the past. When you think differently from the world, you will act differently. Then your song will change for the good.”
He then urged his listeners to always renew their minds in God’s word so as to end well. “If you don’t change your mindset and hold on to the new value of Christ, you would be swept by the tides of the world and go the same way with everybody,” he admonished.
