In her words of encouragement to the congregation Pastor Nomthi stated that God has given Christians their own land typified by the promises of God in the Bible and she urged everyone to focus on this as the devil will do everything possible to get them to take their eyes off God.
Pastor Nomthi said this during the November 22nd Sunday service at The Fountain of Life Church headquarters in Ilupeju, Lagos.
The preacher urged the church to use the word of God to possess what God has in store for them and not get discouraged even when things appear not to be easy.
She further stated that as Christians, our lives have been bought by the precious blood of Jesus therefore the devil cannot exercise any authority over us.
A God-Given Capacity
Pastor Taiwo’s message was based on Acts 9:22 wherein Saul received so much capacity to do the work of God that he was resented by those who felt that they were better placed than him.
He encouraged the congregation to keep their eyes on God even in the midst of circumstances contrary to the word of God and in the face of great opposition.
According to him, strength is a symbol of God’s presence and that anywhere God says “I’m with you” automatically confers his strength, power, deliverance, favour, wisdom, and increase.
He reminded the congregation to know their worth for they are indeed worth more than they can ever think of in the eyes of God and to remember that in their assignment God will always be with them.
This is as he emphasized that the Christian life is not one of indulgence even though the grace of God avails but rather one of high discipline.
The preacher explained that “where it is becoming almost impossible, the grace of God is sufficient for God’s power is made perfect in weakness” and urged the Church not to concentrate on the issues they are being faced with but on the one who has called them.
