Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide spoke to his members at Midweek Communion Service || Canaanland, Ota.
He spoke to them about the power of Praise and also revealed that praising God elongates life. He then tells them a story of how a crusade they once organized in Aba crusade did not go as planned.
He said, “We were in Aba for a crusade and it was a wonderful one. As we were about to start the crusade, the company that we hired the public address system from said they are not giving us again. Ah! Thirty minutes to the time.
I said folks if anybody complains that will be the last crusade forever. Let’s give thanks. We arrived there safely and gave thanks that we were not stoned. We met at least 16 people there who were still wondering what was happening because when they saw them folding the system, they thought there was no crusade.”
Speaking Further, he said, “I asked them to join their hands and I preached to them so that they wouldn’t go. We sang and then came the prophetic word “when next you are in town there will be no seat”. By the time we came back to town, people were sitting down by noon for a 6 pm meeting. If you want to come out of the valley, praise your way out.”
Finally, he said that the anointing flows in the midst of praise that opens up the next chapters. Isn’t God wonderful? If you don’t pass the praise test you live under oppression. You better pass the praise test. Wake up and pass the praise test, it is one way out of the valley. Habakkuk 3:17-19. You are changing your level.
