IT'S NOT FOR EVERYBODY!...Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr

As we gloriously approach the end this great season of fasting and prayers, Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr delivered a powerful exhortation today that could be termed A WAKE UP CALL for all those who are in this race. Speaking at the Covenant Hour of Prayer which takes place every day except Sundays  at 5:30 – 6:30am, the Resident Pastor at Faith Tabernacle emphasized the need to jettison the “crowd mentality” and play by God's rules when heeding the call of God if we must obtain the prize. “God will never require a crowd,” he reminded the congregation of God-early-seekers, adding that even though God gives many the opportunity to receive the call,  few, who seriously and consciously make a choice to play by God’s rules are chosen by God.  Below are highlights of the short but powerful message that left this writer adding a prayer point to his Fifth Module (I guess we all know what a Module is, according to “The Winners’ Dictionary”). Here we go:

God will not require a crowd to deliver His plan. He gives the call to many; He will never require MANY to fulfill His plans. (Isaiah 31:1 {KJV}: “Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are MANY; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!)
God doesn’t discriminate – He chooses you based on what you have chosen.The performance of Gods plan is not up to man but up to Him. God will never require a crowd.

God is always looking for a man...He doesn’t need more than one man. (Ezekiel 22:30 {KJV}: “And I sought for A MAN among them that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”)
He gives the opportunity by making the call to all but those who make a choice to stand out in the pursuit of God and when He locates that man, He distinguishes him. When we stand out in the pursuit of His agenda, He distinguishes us in life. 

David, a boy of 17, took the nation by storm by reason of His choice for God. (1 Samuel 17:37 {KJV}: “David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.”)
(1 Samuel 18:7 {KJV}: “And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.”)

To be a giant in this era, you must be determined to stand out...Let your stewardship pursuit be with distinction; not serving God casually.

Our stewardship to God is a refiner of our destiny; whatever devalues you is taken out.
You determine to become God’s choice by choosing to serve God with distinction.
Personal Declaration: "I don’t want to be a general runner; I want to obtain the prize. I want to be among the few that will stand out in stewardship."
