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 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 …

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!
