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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.



This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.
