A COMPANY OF PRAYING MEN BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

A COMPANY OF PRAYING MEN BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

“It is necessary to pray consistently and never quit”- Luke 18:1

Every great move of God starts with a prayer move. Every dimension of God attained in prayer can only be sustained by prayer no matter the “thus saith the Lord” upon it.

The dimensions of God we seem to experience the reality over night started with an overtime pressing in His presence.

If you are weary, don’t feel sorry, you only need to tarry to carry the substance that would change your story.

Enough of giving excuse for withdrawing from your secret place. Take a prayer posture where ever you are, don’t wait for a feeling or sensation because they would not always come.

I cry O Lord for 1,000 souls that would give the tithe of the day which is 2 hours, 40 minutes in prayers daily all through 2018.

The prayer life of a man is measured in “consistency” not in the hours he prays momentarily. The prayer life of a congregation is measured by the individual consistency of her members in prayers not by the prayer sessions organized momentarily.

Yes! You can pray for 3 hours in tongues at a stretch but the question is “how often do you engage it”. A man who prays one hour consistently daily is better than a man who prays 10 hours at stretch once in a month.

Enough of this emergency days of fasting and prayers after we discovered we have been distracted for long and far from our secret place.

Enough of attending programs, jumping from city to city to be under ministrations as a cover up for lack of fervent prayer life. It won’t work like that! Your secret place is calling you today.

YES! WE HAVE OUR DOWN TIMES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

YES! WE HAVE OUR DOWN TIMES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Days when our close relatives aren’t saved yet we go out there, ministered to multitudes and they encountered the salvation power of God.

Days when we joined our faith with others for financial break through and wealth follows them like a shadow that won’t leave them while we live sometimes by faith for daily survival.

Days when we encouraged others on issues that are of less meaning to us and they got back to their feets while we see many things around us to be discouraged about with no one to really cheer us up as they believe we are fine and will be fine.

Days when we were privileged to minister to men of like passion, they caught the fire and we told them about the potency of fasting and prayer but we didn’t tell them that some of the days of our fasting are born out of our inability to get something to eat yet His glory comes in our secret place.

Days when we package around with empty pockets and people around us tell us they want to be like us but we couldn’t tell them about the part of us that we are tired of experiencing.

Days when we tarried long in his presence and we feel as if nothing happened to us yet we keep pressing in His presence with conquests in view.

Days when we desired to wish some challenges away but when we inquire about them in our secret place, what we heard Him say to us is; “My grace is sufficient for you and my strength is perfect in your weaknesses”.

Instead of praying to God to take away these days from our life journeys, we made the request for Him to stay with us through because we have the consciousness that there are lessons to learn from these experiences.

Folks, there is actually nothing you are going through that you can’t go through. Instead of always publicizing your challenges with others to gain a sense of sympathy why not also consider the lessons you can learn from them having the understanding that it’s not more than what you can bear and it’s only for a while.

EVEN GREAT HEROES HAD A LATE START; THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NOW BY OLAWADE JAMES

My beloved elder brother taught me how to write as a young secondary school boy. I always begged him to assist me with my essay assignments having the knowledge that he was the best essay writer in his secondary. I had good scores with those essays as my English teacher wondered how I came up with those creative write ups.

One day, James said to me; “David, how long will I continue to help you write? Think and write something, you can do it better. Go ahead, write your imaginations and let me do the editing for you till you learn how to do all yourself”.

These words marked the beginning of my writing skills and I won’t stop giving my brother part of the credits for helping me get a clue for my purpose over the years. Below is an article I got from him yesterday, he is presently working on writing one of the endorsements for my latest book “The Empowered Life” and he would also be writing the prologue of my next book “IMPACT DRIVEN LIFE”. Love you brother, I’m privileged again to publish another of your article on our platform. You remain an asset of inestimable worth to me.

EVEN GREAT HEROES HAD A LATE START; THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NOW BY OLAWADE JAMES

I must be sincere it has been a tough journey thus Far. It’s been tedious and slow but even Rivers know this: “there is no hurry”. We shall get there some day.  

Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. Even though my fruit came late, it’s worth it. Thank God for His daily blessings. 

God turned the adversity into a blessing.  In the light of love, I find the glory of God’s grace.

A Life of compliant is a wasteful life. Don’t find fault, find a remedy; because anybody can complain.

The struggles we endured today will be the ‘good old days’ we laugh about tomorrow.

2018 will Surely be a better Year for us all.  Incorporate this into your 2018;

More smiling, less worrying. 

More compassion, less judgment. 

More blessed, less stressed. 

More love, less hate.

Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.

Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. 

Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others’ prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now.

Why are you burdened? BY WARI EKI

Why are you burdened? BY WARI EKI
(Philippians 4:6-7)

Sometimes ago, I had this issue that was bothering me so much that it became a burden. It was something that I prayed about constantly, but it was like each time I prayed, I became more anxious and burdened by the issue. Finally, one day I cried out to God, “why isn’t this going away Father? Why is my heart still so heavy?” And the answer I got was one that has changed my life. God simply said, “how do you expect me to take this burden from you when you are holding onto it so tightly?”

A lot of people have this habit of praying from a place of worry and anxiety (myself included sometimes). Whenever a bad situation comes up, the first reaction we have as humans is one of fear and worry, “oh, what do I do? How do I handle this?”. 

Most people will actually try and solve the problem with their own strength, and when we are unable to sort it out and prayer does come to mind as a last resort, we often take this anxious mindset into the place of prayer. And after praying, we promptly pick our burdens back up and go right back to worrying about them.

According to our scripture in focus, In any and every situation we are not be anxious, but we are to make known our requests to God through prayer, supplication (which is an intense earnestness in extended prayer by making direct request to God and fully transferring the burdens of ones soul to Gods hands), and then thanksgiving, and when we have given thanks we are to let go and allow His peace which passes all understanding guard our hearts. It is important to take note of the progression of the scripture; Prayer, supplication, thanksgiving and then peace. 

Once you have prayed concerning an issue, give thanks to God because you know that He has heard you and stop worrying! 

1 Peter 5:7 says, “casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, because He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (AMPC, emphasis mine). 

The word “cast” means to throw something forcefully in a specified direction. We are to cast all of our worries and anxieties on God, and the amplified Bible adds a very important phrase, “once and for all”. This means that our casting should be a one time thing. When you throw something away in the trash do you keep going to pick it back up only to just throw it away again? No! You throw something away once and then walk away. It’s the same here, We are not to cast our problems, run and pick them back up, then cast again. 

The peace of God, according to the amplified bible, is “that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fears nothing from God and is content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is”, and this peace is one that surpasses all understanding. Prayer and this kind of peace are closely connected. A person who entrusts their cares to Christ instead of worrying about them will experience the peace of God and this will help to guard one’s mind in Christ.

So, whatever it is that you are going through, that you are facing, that you are struggling with, take it to your Father in the place of prayer with the knowledge that He cares for and about you, and that He has good thoughts towards you to give you a good future. Give thanks to Him for this, leave your burdens at His feet, and allow His peace to fill you.

PLEASE, PRAY FOR ME TO MISS IT LIKE BENNY HINN, PASTOR ADEBOYE, BISHOP OYEDEPO AND OTHER FATHERS OF FAITH BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

PLEASE, PRAY FOR ME TO MISS IT LIKE BENNY HINN, PASTOR ADEBOYE, BISHOP OYEDEPO AND OTHER FATHERS OF FAITH BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Please if you know anyone who claims to be anointed and professed that our fathers in the faith has missed, send me his address so I can visit him to lay hands on me so I can miss it like them.

These men have labored, preach, spend and being spent for the gospel over the years with proven track records and results but some folks amidst us who told us they have a new “rhema” decided that the best compensation they could give our fathers in the faith is to insult, criticize, castigate and correct them publicly.

These men haven’t loss a smoke as they are burning hotter and hotter daily in the course of advancing the kingdom in territories where preaching looks seemingly impossible. They have fought the beasts of Ephesus, taken garrisons, subdued kingdoms and conquered territories and still in the process yet some claimed they have missed.

These men are ushering thousands of souls to the kingdom monthly even those that claimed they have missed it, their salvation is traceable to the spirit of conviction at work in their ministry and they first encountered God through them.

Nicodemus said to Jesus, “no one can do these except the Lord be with him”, these miracles, signs and wonders are following them like a shadow that won’t leave them and they have been consistent over the years to reproduce these results. They can’t be where they and doing the supernatural if the Lord is not with them. Please, if that’s how to miss it, may I miss it like them.

There daily experiences remains a one day dream for many out there but we think we can get to where they are by criticizing their disposition about tithe and prosperity, we must be joking. There are things they know that are still mysteries to us, you can ask the Holy Spirit for confirmation.

Hear me sir, God has not given any man an office to judge other men of God neither has any man been given criticism and correction as a calling. Any one that claims to be in that office or called for such purpose was once with us and has gone out of the fold.

If you claim you have not missed it like our fathers in the faith as you claim, show us the souls your new “rhema” has saved over the years who are fervent in the Lord and the results of the supernatural you have commanded over time.

We are in a generation where everyone has an idea about the scriptures and no one is ready to unlearn to learn.

WHY GIVE GLORY TO DARKNESS?

Folks are now saying Jesus and the Apostles didn’t use private jets to preach and to do their ministries but I have told them that if spiritual discernment was their problem it would have been better. The issue has been with their calendar, it is telling them 300 B.C when we are in 2017.

Tell them, if they want to move from one place to another, they should not board or buy a car, they should go and get horses or sail with boats. Tell them, if they have a car, let them first sell it to sponsor their family member in the village to school and start riding camel before they can criticize a pastor whom God has blessed, whose silent impact on the society they know not.

From scriptures, Jesus was a carpenter, tell them to also stop their careers, burn M.B.B.S and L.L.B certificates then learn carpentry before they are qualified to do ministry. Since Abraham was a cattle rearer and we are heirs according to his promises, we are all supposed not to do secular businesses, we to be rearing cattles so as to prove to the world that we believe the scriptures.

It is only in my generation that a secular man in darkness would acquire the best of material resources and people would be quite but when an anointed of God acquires something similar, we say it is not for light. We are inadvertently saying, light can’t produce the best of resources or there is a limit for someone who is in light to be blessed while those in darkness should be at the peak of blessing.

Please tell them to grow up and upgrade, ignorance has done them so many harm and they are getting used against the gospel.

We are praying for them and will continue to pray for them in love. I stand with faithful men and our fathers in the faith who are ahead of us in laboring for the gospel and advancing the kingdom. I’m a follower of men who through faith has obtained the promises. 

No one can stop this end time move, remnants are rising.

THAT WE ARE SINGLE DOESN’T MEAN SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH US Part 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

THAT WE ARE SINGLE DOESN’T MEAN SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH US Part 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

The aim of this article is not to actually give an excuse for being single neither is it to advertise my status to attract people to my present condition but to encourage others who are also in my shoes even though I’m planning to come out soon. I’m about to upgrade to that realm too.

I know there are many out there who think something is wrong with them for being single till now even when it appears that many around them are engaged, married and raising their children. Don’t worry that Mr. or Miss right is coming your way soon. Be discerning, time and chance happens to it all. 

Often, the reason why you feel something is wrong with you is because you compare yourself with others and listen to what others are saying. 

As for me, parents, friends, pastors, fathers and mothers in the faith have asked me how long will you remain in this status without a clue?

Some told me that I’m really in a confused state, I told them confusion is an under statement because sometimes, everywhere looks like the way and being surrounded with wonderful great minds of like passion is not helping my matter at all (Winks).

They told me, “you need to get engaged as soon as possible to avoid the temptations of seeing beautiful sisters as you go about with the ministry”, I replied that “getting engaged does not stop other sisters from being beautiful anywhere I go”. I’m yet to get a prove that ministrations can stop one’s beauty or volumes of itineraries of a minister could close down beauty shops in areas where he would visit.

They said I’m getting older by the day, I responded by saying “I don’t need a prophet to tell me that, the rate of the growth of my beard lately is enough”. I also need a confirmation that being in a relationship increases or reduces a man’s age.

They brought to my knowledge that marriage is very important in one’s quest to fulfilling destiny, I responded from what my beloved sister, Dr. Bien Sufficient taught me over the years “purpose is greater than marriage and of what use is my marriage if I’m drowning in the ocean of purpose”. The greatest discovery of a man after knowing who God is to him is purpose not his spouse to be (though it’s also very important to discover your future partner).

They reminded of the fact that there is a vacuum in my heart that if not filled as soon as possible, I might misbehave. I smiled and responded by saying, “the vacuum has been there since I was born while haven’t I been mishaving and why is it that there are folks who has filled their vacuum yet still misbehaving?”.

They said I might not be able to control my body from doing “gish gish” again if I continue on this status. I said “getting engaged or getting married is not the remedy to stop this, it our natural body reaction”.

Folks, please, if you see or know my Miss Right, tell her I won’t tarry long again and if she hears my request she shouldn’t harden her heart.

To be continued, follow closely.
