Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, is one of Nigeria’s wealthiest ministers of God. God has so abundantly blessed him that he has ministered to people’s lives both spiritually and financially.
He revealed one important piece of information God gave him that changed his life at a recent meeting with his members. He quoted the book of Proverbs 4:13 which says
“Take fast hold of instruction, keep her, let her not go! For she is thy life”
The man of God then revealed what God told him a few years ago when he purchased a brand new plane. Despite the fact that he had just purchased a new plane, he stated that the Lord had instructed him not to leave Nigeria. It will undoubtedly be a difficult decision to make, but the man of God obeyed the Lord’s word. He stated that he has not crossed the border of any country since 2017, and that their plane is currently parked at the airport.
“I have not stepped out into Ghana, we have about 200 churches in there. I have never stepped into Benin Republic which is behind my house here and I don’t need to fly. Driving is faster than flying. Praise God. It’s 2 hours from my house to the hotel I will stay. Praise God. But he said ‘Don’t go out of this Country’!. Yes Sir!”, He said.
After obeying God’s word, he revealed that God had truly blessed him more than he had ever been blessed. Because he obeyed God, he received more blessings than he could have imagined. This is a huge lesson for everyone, and we must learn from our father’s life. We must be obedient to God’s word if we want to include his blessings.
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land.
