Daily Personal Confession
I confess today; my destiny cannot be truncated by any work of darkness. As I call on the lord I encounter His favour and grace. I will never lose in life, great things are happening for me and to me in all aspects of life. The word of God has perfected that which concerns me. I am victorious always and I will never be a victim of any circumstance in Jesus name. Amen
Memorise: And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. – Genesis 11:5
Read: Genesis 11:4-5 (KJV)
4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
We have seen that if you want your followers to have one language, then you must ensure the vision is big and clearly articulated from the onset.
If your vision is to ensure there is a restroom in every building in your city, people may not take you seriously as it may appear too simple a task.
However, if your goal is audacious like that of Barack Obama – the first black President of the United States of America, then people would follow you with all their heart.
God-given vison usually seems impossible to achieve; however, He is able to fulfil whatever He has promised (Romans 4:21).
A vision worth pursuing is that which appears impossible to achieve. If for nothing else, people will follow to see if it will actually be achieved.
One day in 1988, I announced we were going to hold a crusade in Lagos where four million people would be in attendance.
It really looked impossible, but at the end, we discovered over six million people attended.
Of course, while many did come to be part of the big vision, some came to see if we would actually have the projected attendance.
They were so many that not all could see or hear what was happening on the altar, but they stayed until the end because it was a vision that was worth becoming a part of.
The crowd attracted international media and ever since, we have had gatherings with even larger numbers by God’s grace.
I know the power of God has always drawn people to our programmes; however, it is proven that if your vision appears impossible, you will attract attention.
The vision of the people in Genesis 11:5 was so big that it got God’s attention.
“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.”
Can your vision attract God’s attention? If people don’t see your vision as impossible, then you need to rethink it.
The vision worth following is one that seems impossible to achieve.
This weekend, the presence of God will go with me and my household in Jesus’ name!
I decree, Father I lift every leader and people in place of authority unto you, let them walk and work in your fear always
I decree every power working tirelessly to shame our leader in all works of life, their evil agenda will not ducceed, in the mighty name of Jesus
I cancel all evil counsel around our leaders of faith. They shall grow in the might of the Lord and stand out, in Jesus’ name
