ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING



Good morning dear reader, how has the week been? 

Before we get into the weekend mood I want to quickly share this with you. I want to take time out to thank every participant of our 2016 December Conference(TIAG 1.0). You guys are the best and I trust you can boldly say it was worth the time invested right?

In case you missed this maiden event or will like to keep its memory fresh, you can download(with chrome preferably) the audio version of each sections here. 

We could not get the event covered fully because our media department refused to miss out of the move of the Holy-spirit. But here you have a glimpse of the Impartation section. To watch click here.

This week is definitely one grand week for us as Covenant of Life because as an Institution and Ministry we clocked One year - December 07 while this arm of operation called CL Blogs will be one year old on the 15th of December. If we have in any way blessed you, It is time to pay us back via our social handles or in the comment box with comments, follows, shares and likes.

Back to the business of the day: 

 YOUR ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

If what you are doing doesn’t produce resistance, what you are doing is not worth doing.  Consider these facts:
-          Without resistance of water, ships can’t float
-          Without the resistance of air, planes can’t fly
-          Without the resistance of gravity, men can’t walk
-          A rubber band is effective only when it is stretched
-          A turtle gets nowhere until it sticks out its neck out.
-          Kites rise against the wind, not with it.

If I continue, I will keep citing instances and examples but for brevity sake our just concluded conference is one great example for a case study.

The process of struggle develops your character, your strength and your mind. Stop hiding from success because you are afraid you will fail. Failure is necessary stop fearing risk. Have faith and step up to reach for the stars.

Everything in life involves risk:
When I talk risk here I am not talking about selfish activities young adults get involved in this days all in the name of making money - bets, gambles & outrageous interest oriented stuffs. Below are risks I am talking of;
-          To laugh is to risk appearing the fool
-          To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
-          To reach out for another is to risk involvement
-          To expose your feelings is to risk exposing your true self
-          To share your ideas and dreams with others is to risk rejection
-          To live is to risk dying
-          To hope is to risk despair

It doesn’t matter what you risk now, what matters is the outcome of what was risked.   What justifies the risk is what is picked.

What are you picking?
Let me dwell on this a bit;

-          To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. Do you pick laughter or foolishness? Attitude determines the outcome.

-          To live is to risk dying. Do you pick life or death? Your attitude influences your choices and your choices make you.


               Oppositions are propositions that take you to the up-position.                Attitude sometimes make them/it remain  oppositions.

Consider the battle of David and Goliath. When Goliath came against Israel, forty thousand Israeli soldiers thought, he’s so big we can never kill him. David looked at the sane giant and thought; he’s so big I can’t miss him. – Attitude! Everything!!

Can you run an attitude assessment and share the result with me?
I remain your coach in service.

Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi,
Covenant of Life.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …
