MOVE AWAY FROM THE CONVENTIONAL

1 Corinthians 1:24 -25

24 But to those who are called, whether Jew or Greek (Gentile), Christ [is] the Power of God and the Wisdom of God. 25 [This is] because the foolish thing [that has its source in] God is wiser than men, and the weak thing [that springs] from God is stronger than men.

Whenever you yield to God’s timing, it will cause you to take actions that seem absolutely foolish to human reasoning. But if you want to be led by the Spirit of God, you must be willing to move away from the conventional.

David was one man who understood the benefits of totally obeying God as shown in 1 Chronicles14:13-17: “13 And the Philistines again made a raid in the valley. 14 And David inquired again of God, and God said to him, do not go up after them; turn away from them and come [around] upon them over opposite the mulberry trees. 15 And when you hear a sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry or balsam trees, then go out to battle, for God has gone out before you to smite the Philistine host. 16 So David did as God commanded him, and they smote the army of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gezer. 17 And the fame of David went out into all lands, and the Lord brought fear of him upon all nations”.

I’m excited about the conclusion of the story we have just read and I know you are too! The end result came through adhering to a seemingly foolish instruction. It was possible for David to follow through with the seemingly foolish instruction because of his passion for the presence of God. Beloved, how much do you value the presence of God? To benefit from the presence of God, you must be ready to move away from the conventional. Doing the unconventional will always attract huge criticisms. Can you stand being criticized for the truth? Are you willing to say yes to God at the price of losing some close friends? God will be limited in expressing Himself in your life when the fear of man rules your heart.

Remove the fear of men from your heart. Whatever it is that you are depending on men for, God has it all in excess. Whenever there is a need in your life, God will always present you with an opportunity to give to another. Learn to act with speed because every action of obedience that you take will bring liberation to many. God is about to do the unusual in your life that will turn things around for good but listen to hear Him speak.

I had been asthmatic right from when I was born. Asthma had become part of my life that I had my inhalers in every part of my house; the living room, bedroom, kitchen and in my car. It was such a stronghold that I couldn’t even laugh hard or exercise without having to use my inhaler.
On one faithful Sunday, Pastor Ose called me into his office and asked me to bring my inhaler. The inhaler I had in my car had just finished so I went home and brought all my inhalers, I had different types and brands of inhalers, because I wasn’t using the regular ones. The pharmacists knew me so well such that whenever I walked into a pharmacy the pharmacist would just go straight to the counter and get me an inhaler without even asking what I wanted.
Pastor collected all the inhalers from me, prayed for me and that was it. As I stepped out of his office, I believed strongly I was healed. Although the enemy kept harassing my mind to buy one on my way home, incase, it happened again. Yet, I stood steadfast on the word of God declared over my body by the man of God.
Right now, I am asthma free and I have never had any reason to use an inhaler again. Truly God is faithful!

I applied for a conference, “innovating Education in Africa Expo” organized by the African Union and the Government of Botswana and I was selected as a delegate from Nigeria. The conference was slated to hold in Botswana from the 20th to 22nd of August, 2019. I was sent the invitation letter as a delegate by 7th of July and the letter stated explicitly that there is no funding to attend the summit. And by 31st of July if I do not confirm my flight and hotel accommodation, the space will be revoked.
I needed not less than #600,000 for flight, hotel accommodation and logistics. My account balance could not support the statistics. Then I remembered the testimony of a sister in church who shared of how someone miraculously paid her airfare and hotel bills to attend a conference in the UK. I held on to it as a reference and started declaring the favor of God.
I made a post on Twitter about the conference and later that day, someone I do not know, sent me a message and offered to pay for my flight. The person’s name sounded American or British. There was no picture or location on the twitter account, so I thought it was a scam.
On Friday, July 26th, the person sent my return ticket. I contacted the South African Airline to confirm the flight details and it was genuine. While thanking God for His favor, the next day, I received another message from the same person requesting for my most preferred choice of hotel and I mentioned masa Square Hotel, a fourstar hotel. And by the next day, an evidence of payment for my hotel accommodation in Botswana was sent to me. I sent a message to the hotel to confirm the booking and I was informed that someone has paid for my stay for four nights. Till today, I still don’t know who the person is, it was all by the favor of God. My trip to and fro Botswana was favor filled. God orchestrated the sons of strangers to rebuild my wall.

In August 2019, I was on a scaffold, plastering a two storey building when all of a sudden, the scaffold broke and I started heading for the ground. Before I reached the ground, I declared “I will not die, because I drink from the Brook”. I tried to protect my head from landing on the ground and instead, I landed with my chest. My ribs were broken and I was rushed to the hospital.
I remembered the teachings of Pastor Ose telling us to lay hands on any part of our bodies that hurts and command healing over it. I kept laying hands on my chest and I declared the healing power of God to overwhelm it. I was referred to a village to be placed on traditional medicine. All through my stay in the village, I kept declaring the word of God and complete restoration over my bones and body.
My recovery was speedy and I am back to my feet, hale and hearty with all my bones completely healed.

On the 8th of November 2019, I received a letter in my office, informing me of a planned outsource of my unit. This was to take effect on the 30th of November. There was no guarantee that I will absorbed, that technically meant job termination. I got home worried and suddenly I remembered a word of prophecy from Pastor Ose, stating that what the enemy had intended for evil, God has turned it around for good. So, I brought out the letter and kept confessing a change from termination to promotion.
The date of termination of appointment was shifted to December 15, 2019. As the days drew near, anxiety filled the atmosphere in the office. When the names were released, I was the only staff whose name was short-listed. I was not only retained, I was promoted. God pulled strings on my behalf and out of the eater, came something sweet to eat.

I was informed that my very close aunt was kidnapped on Sunday, January 19, 2020. By Wednesday morning, there was no credible lead as to her whereabouts. I spoke with my family and assured them that she will be found and God will avenge for us over this act of wickedness towards her.
Afterwards, I started praying, asking God for directions. I saturated my attention with the word of God by listening to the teaching series for January 2020 by Pastor Ose titled “Conceive it, Retain it & Deliver it”. While listening to the teaching series, the Holy Spirit impressed a scripture in my heart in 1 Samuel 30:8,18-19. It stirred up an unusual excitement, laughter, praise and worship to God for answered prayer. In line with the teaching from the message, I began to engage my imagination on the scriptures impressed in my heart by the Holy Spirit. I imagined in my mind a scenario of my Aunty’s release from her kidnappers. I made a personalized confession from 1 Samuel 30:8;18-19, declaring it as follows:

‘And I enquired at the Lord and He answered me, saying “Pursue: for you have surely overtaken them and without fail recovered all, including your Aunty. Rightfully, I recovered all that the kidnappers had taken away and I Kingsley Oguma rescued my Aunty. And there was nothing lacking to me, neither small nor great: Kingsley Oguma recovered all, including my Aunty’.

I also backed up my faith declarations with other scriptures and the declaration of the covenant of peace from Isaiah 26:3-4 (nothing missing, nothing stolen and nothing broken). Constantly, I reminded myself that angels that excel in strength have been dispatched to ensure the release of my Aunty from the snare of the fowler.

Throughout Wednesday, my heart was set on the communion service while I kept on meditating on a similar testimony of someone’s father who was miraculously released from kidnappers last year. In addition, I kept remembering the different testimonies that had been shared in church. I was fired up and eagerly waiting for my testimony. I took communion on behalf of my Aunty, I was too sure that it will fast track her release from her kidnappers.
The next day, I received news that my aunt was miraculously rescued from the kidnappers by a vigilante group. It could only be God!!!

Numbers 24:9 (KJV)

“He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blessed thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee.

Numbers 24:9 gives a vivid word picture of the Lion of the tribe of Judah- He is couched up. The lion of the tribe of Judah dwells on your inside waiting to be stirred up into action. In other words, He can’t do anything except He’s stirred up to action.

To stir up the lion, you must make your boast about the unlimited abilities of the Lion resident on your inside.  The more vivid the picture you see of the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the more potent your words will become when you begin to speak. Everything you say with your mouth is a description of what you already have in your heart. So, see the testimonies of what the lion has done in the past, believe them, and begin to speak them boldly.

Whenever the lion is stirred up, none of His adversaries dares to stand against him. Every suspended process that is for your benefit is reversed. He reverses any slow paced process; any payment hat has been held down, is released. When the lion is stirred up, any beneficial thing that eluded your hands is restored, anything that is still being expected will come faster than you would have ever imagined it. When the lion is stirred up, anything that has the sting of death is swallowed up forever (see Isaiah 25:8).

Declare boldly, the lion of the tribe of Judah is my father. I make my boast in Him and I declare that He is the highest in the realm of existence. As the apple of His eyes, He has my best at heart and will go to any length to make sure I succeed in all my endeavours. He never sleeps no slumber; rather He watches over me diligently. When the enemy threatens, He sits in the heavens and He laughs. That is the God I serve.

PRAYER: My Heavenly Father, my confidence in your testimony concerning Jesus is unwavering. The sum total of the wisdom of God resides in me.

PONDER ON: Revelation 5:10
