WE CAN’T GLIDE OVER THE GREAT ACTS OF GOD AT COVENANT UNIVERSITY. WE WILL BE INGRATES DOING SO.
COVENANT UNIVERSITY IS ON TOP OF ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES, HOW? GOD!
WE HAVE NEVER TAKEN AN OFFERING IN THIS CHURCH ON HOW TO HELP COVENANT UNIVERSITY RUN.
COVENANT UNIVERSITY PRODUCES THE MOST EMPLOYABLE GRADUATES IN NIGERIA.
WE BECAME AN AWARD-WINNING UNIVERSITY ALMOST FROM THE BEGINNING.
I LITERALLY TOOK DICTATIONS FROM GOD ON THE MAIN STRUCTURES OF THAT UNIVERSITY.
OUR CORE VALUES CAN ONLY BE COPIED BY OTHERS. WE DIDN’T COPY FROM ANYBODY. OUR FOUNDING PHILOSOPHY CAME DOWN DIRECTLY FROM THE OWNER (GOD).
YOU CAN’T ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOLDEN DESTINY IN THE ENERGY OF THE FLESH. WE NEED GOD.
– Bishop David Oyedepo on UNDERSTANDING THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT at Covenant Day of Fruitfulness Service Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland First Sunday Service || Part A
God shall be terminating every form of barrenness in anyone’s life today.
– Spiritual barrenness will come to an end today.
– Family dryness will come to an end today.
– Business and career barrenness will come to an end today.
– Barrenness in anyone’s health will come to an end today.
– Physical barrenness will come to an end today.
– Every man and woman called barren shall be turned into fruitful mothers and fathers of children.
– The Lord will give grace and glory today and from this hour onward, no one shall remain helpless.
– The Holy Ghost, the master helper will come and manifest Himself anew in everyone’s life.
– This service is your service. Something new is going to break forth in your life.
– Perpetual mountains will fly out.
– For anyone’s shame, God shall restore double glory.
Everything keeps working here because God is here. Give God thanks for keeping everything working in this place, without sweat and stress.
For keeping everything working in your life, give Him thanks. Also for keeping this great nation today till now, give God thanks. Give Him thanks for preserving this nation for over 63 years.
We can’t glide over the acts of God at Covenant University. We can’t. We will be ingrates doing so. What have we done to merit all that we are seeing? We just came up yesterday. Universities have been forever in Africa. Nigeria has been there for over 60 years. When did we come? Who is making it happen? God! We are talking about global ranking, not local ranking. On top of all Federal, State and Private universities, how? God! If you don’t give God thanks for one, you never arrive at two.
All things may not be working right now for someone here but give God thanks for what is working then He will enlarge it. Thank God for keeping Covenant University on top over the years without stress or strain, for giving Himself a name. Thank God for what He is doing at Covenant University to prove that it is His own.
I like us to position ourselves for God’s agenda for the month. I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU HELPLESS.
That is what the Spirit is saying.
No one ever runs out of His help anymore. Whether in your sleep in the night, as you go about your daily business, no one here shall run out of His help.
Lord Jesus, thank you again for the privilege of entering into a new month. Let the blessings loaded in this month locate every one of us in the name of Jesus. Let no one lack access to encounters that open new chapters this month in the name of Jesus.
Let each one standing today on the line for miracle children return with their miracles. Let everyone who has been going through dry seasons in life step into a new phase of life. Take all the glory in Jesus’ name.
Our anchor scripture for the theme of the month is John 14:16-18. He is our source of all-round help. Psalm 46:1-4. The very present help in trouble. John 7:38. So He is our very present help in trouble. John 14:17. He shall be in you, you can’t forget Him at home. He is in you. Wherever you are found your help is there.
He is on the inside of you. John 16:7, 7:37-39.
There is a river of God that makes the city of God glad. Psalm 45:7. Ever present wherever you are, in the midst of the storms of life, the boat is rocking, the flight has lost its wings, my help is there. That is why every believer needs to be filled with the Holy Ghost. His presence is registered as He gives utterance in other tongues. That is what signals His arrival.
Everybody needs this help. Your parents can’t be there in our hour of trouble. Even though you and your wife are one, you are going to be there alone. Attack in the night does not bother who sleeps by your side.
Psalm 46:1. Very present Help in times of trouble, His name is the Holy Ghost. It is not speaking in tongues, He is a person. John 14:17. Watch out for Him.
Our teaching series for our Sunday Services of the Month is captioned UNDERSTANDING THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. What has He come to offer? What does He carry for us? 1 Corinthians 12:1-7. His mission is to make living profitable for the redeemed through His diverse operations and gifts. We would not have succeeded in penetrating this forest of evil without Him.
It is absolutely impossible. Not by power, not by might but by the Spirit. Zechariah 4:6. Our golden destiny is impossible to realize without the Holy Ghost. Zechariah 4:1-6. Our golden destiny can never be realized without the diverse operations of the Holy Ghost.
When Covenant University opened, we had our usual celebration in church. We danced from the gate of the university to the roundabout and came back to the gate. The Lord said… When you say the Lord said, it is the Holy Spirit speaking. He will not speak of Himself. He said hand it over to me. I said how? He said lay flat on the floor. A number of us were there. I laid flat on the floor with my brand new shirt. Hand it over to me and I will take it over. He took it over from then.
We have no feelings of running the university. We never ran around for enrollment. We became an award-winning university almost from the beginning. We still produce the most employable graduates in Nigeria. He took it over. Why? He took it over. The helper came. Do you want me to take over? Lay down here my friend. You never hear that you are carrying it on your head. You will be sweating day and night. I never knew when they paid, how they paid from the beginning. We have never taken an offering in this church on how to help Covenant University run. You have struggled enough, you need the helper. You need the helper to come your way and dictate your steps in life.
So it is not a religious emblem or charismatic identity, He is your only reliable and dependable ever-present helper. I literally took dictations from Him on the main structures of that university. Our Core Values can only be copied by others. We didn’t copy from anybody. Our Founding Philosophy came down directly from the Owner. You better wake up. You have struggled enough.
There is a limit to where you and I can go. You can’t accomplish a golden destiny in the energy of the flesh. We need Him. May this Helper come alive in every one of us today. May we never ignore the help of this Helper in the name of Jesus.
