Title - Maintaining Your Victory

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Matthew 12:43-45

Bible Passages:- Judges 14:5-6, Judges 16:20, Isaiah 3:10, Numbers 14:28, Deuteronomy 28:1-13,

As we end our 100 days prayer and fasting, the enemy has already gathered forces to try and make sure we don't enjoy our victory. 

7 Steps to Maintaining Your Victory

1. Do not have a SINFUL level of self confidence. UNHEALTHY self confidence will erode the blessings of God from our lives.

2. 1 Peter 5:8 Know YOUR enemy! Do NOT underestimate the enemy. Underestimating the enemy may cause him to gain our trophies

3. Adhere strictly to the WORD of God. 

4. Stay under the shadow of the ALMIGHTY God. The enemy is waiting for our downfall. Let us stay UNDER COVER!

5. Always make POSITIVE confessions. Numbers 14:28

6. Be CAREFUL of the company you KEEP! Dan 3:16 Those that do not have anything

7. Let NOT God's praise CEASE from your mouth. Psalm 34:1

Prayer: Father, the day that the enemy is waiting for/planned, where I will cry for sorrow, Father PLEASE let that day NEVER come.

Title - Oh! that men would praise the Lord

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Psalm 107: 31-32. 

Bible Passages:- Psalm 107: 31-32

As today is a Thanksgiving Sunday, we may not dive in too deep into the Word.
Today is a day to praise God. Not a time to bombard God with request rather let us praise Him.

For David to make the exclamation "Oh that men would praise God" means he must have seen how ungrateful humans are to God.

Everyday, people are dying as a result of health issues, some in accidents, others were murdered.

Oh that men would be thoughtful and grateful to God.
Do you think it is because you are better than does who died brutally?
How wrong you are if you think so.

Why are you complaining because your bank account is not as robust as you intend ?
Or because you don't have a new car, shoes, clothes and other material things that we allow weigh us down ?

Let me narrate a true story in Nigeria where some people kidnapped and brutally murdered all in the name of black magic, power, money etc ?
Those that were brutally murdered are not worse sinners than we that are still alive.
But God was merciful to keep you alive yet you are not grateful to Him?

Instead of complaining, why not count your blessings, name them one by one, 
why not count your blessings and see what the Lord has done
Just count your blessings and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.
