Lift up your voice and say I will live, my family will not die. I have victory in the name of Jesus.

By the Word of God, I decree you shall live in the name of Jesus. Put your hands together for Jesus Christ and give a shout of praise.

On behalf of Jesus Christ, I welcome you to this special service, our Covenant Day of Long Life, our Communion service. The fact that you are in this seceive shows that you have crossed over. God will never leave His people without a witness and He’s ready to do it again and again – Psalms 126:01 – anytime the devil wants to whisper death to you, tell him to shut up.

Those led by God gets authenticated for stardom. You need to grow to know how God leads. We will always need divine direction, no one outgrows it. Divine direction is a must – Psalms 37:25 – those subject to divine direction never beg in life.

When you follow God’s commandments, you end up as a commander. Whatever God says takes preeminence over anything.

  1. We are redeemed to be a blessing and not a burden to our world. God can’t create you to be a failure, you are an asset and not a liability. You are created to be a blessing, where you are now, is only a passage, not your destination. You are created to be an envy, not to be pitied. You are a solution to your generation.Whatever you are suffering today, God is giving you dominion over it.
  2. We are redeemed to be more than conquerors, to be on top of our enemies – Ephesians 02:06, 01:20-21, Romans 08:35-37 – A General does not stand to exchange words with a corporal. It takes divine direction to arrive at an enviable destiny in Christ – the story of Isaac as an example – Genesis 26:01-14.

Five Things to Note by Reason of Divine Direction:

  1. Speedy fulfilment.
  2. Greatness
  3. Unending success – Psalm 71:21 – When you are led by God, your life will be on the increase.
  4. Intimidating success – When you are led by God, no devil can stop you. Every decision we make in life is either to our advantage or disadvantage. No decision leaves us the same in life, that’s the reason we should be careful with our decisions in life. Acknowledge God first in all you do. Subject your every step to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Let the Holy Ghost lead you, gifts and talents are good but, they may not be your calling in your life.

The Cause of Misdirection.

  1. Peter in the Bible
    When you go to where God did not send you, you will see what you don’t want to see – Galatians 02:11-14 – No matter where you are now, there’s still hope for greatness in you. God can still lead you.

Three things in the life of a man – yesterday today and tomorrow, they all have bearing in your life. That’s the reason you must heed to the teachings of this month. Don’t dwelling in the past but, use the present wisely. You can influence what will happen today and tomorrow by taking the right steps – Isaiah 60:14-15.

We saw in the scriptures those God directed and where they ended, example, Jacob.
God’s leading for our lives can be the great plan for us. God can lead you to the right people, and places – Jeremiah 29:14 – let God direct you on the right path. God can direct you to your destiny helper that can give you a turnaround from wanderer of years within a very short period.

Wonders of Divine Direction.

  1. It secures supernatural restoration – 1 Samuel 30:08 – With God, you never ever assume because, there’s a way that seems right but, the end is destruction. Ask God again and again for with him, there’s no assumption. Not everything that glitters is gold. Pursuing when God has not commanded, you lose everything.
  2. It brings supernatural supplies – Psalms 23:01, Exodus 16:35 – If it is God leading you, you don’t suffer lack – Isaiah 48:21 – just let God be leading you and you will see His Mighty Hands – Luke 22:35 – If it is God leading you, before you get there, the doors will be opened – Daniel 03:25.
