Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide spoke at 1st Service, Faith Tabernacle. Church Gist posted his sermon as it was the Covenant Day of Business and Career Breakthrough. He said that there is no lineage of success. Everybody works his way to succeed.
He said that if you don’t understand Success Secrets, understand Success Strategies. If you don’t understand Success Strategies, understand Success Systems. “I think I should write Success Codes,” he said. He said that no plane tows another in the air. To go up, you have to generate the relevant ground power to take off in the air.
Speaking further, he said that Abraham gave Isaac all that he had, but he never succeeded in it. He had to dig the ground, he had to plant the seed. He dug, they filled it and he said, “no way, I am going to get through.” His breakthrough was not on his inheritance. He dug and dug until he became the envy of the Philistines. “You can’t succeed on somebody’s else inheritance. You can’t win a race running with another man’s legs. You better get up,” he said.
He said that he told his father when he was told that, “when you die, whatever belongs to me, give it to the others.” According to him, he had an understanding of it. It is not guesswork. He was 25 years old when I said that and he had no single plot of land in the world. “Can’t we close now, that is the summary of this subject? I have given you the summary before we started the lecture,” he concluded.
Finally, you have to make your way prosperous and command good success by your choice to take responsibility (Joshua 1:8). He advised that you pray for yourself any prayer you want to pray, so he can do the teaching that he has to do. Abraham became successful after 75. He took responsibility and went through it. David became a hero at 17. “Anybody has his place if he chooses to. Everybody has his place if he chooses to,” he said.
