DON’T COMPARE GRACE, CONNECT TO THE GRACE AT WORK IN A FELLOW BELIEVER BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

DON’T COMPARE GRACE, CONNECT TO THE GRACE AT WORK IN A FELLOW BELIEVER BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I have been privileged over time to make the University College Hospital, Ibadan, sport field my secret place. Sometimes, I have to start up my day in His presence over there, take out time in the afternoon during lecture breaks and retire there late in the evening to have moments alone with God.

I get to see young men of like passion there too as they also press to gain ascendency to remain fervent and consistent in doing the demands of the faith that was delivered to us.

News of a particular young medical student began to come to my ears as some brethren have reports of how fervent and committed the young man is to prayers. I heard of the mighty things God is using him to do, how he could pray 8 to 10 hours in the spirit during his quite time, some said they hardly see him eat, how he is stirring up the heart of men to deep things of God.

Thought like; “I wish to meet this young man of like passion” filled my heart and I longed for a set time to meet him. 

Of recent, I was privileged to be invited for a meeting in Lagos and a fellow post graduate colleague told me she saw the flier of a program I would be gracing soon and asked if I’m aware that one of the other guests is also a student in the college.

I did my findings and discovered it was the same young man I heard of and been longing to meet. I said to myself; “now the set time has come”.

There I was on the day of the meeting. I was accompanied by the convener and the protocols to the ministers’ office in the auditorium. As the door was opened and I stepped in, the desired man of like passion hugged me so closely immediately as we both prayed in the spirit till we felt a mighty stirring from within us. His first word to me before we got to know ourselves was “You are my brother”.

Those that accompanied me couldn’t believe their eyes as they imagined how we couldn’t wait to exchange pleasantries first before embracing ourselves in such manner as we prayed in the spirit. They wondered if we had met before but I told them; “we are connected in the spirit”.

That consciousness of our agreement in faith and connection in the spirit opened us up to the confidence of experiencing the supernatural in that meeting. To the glory of God, there was a mighty demonstration of the power of God in diverse manifestations.

Dear minister, if you see men that carry a grace you desire, celebrate it and don’t be jealous. Any grace you attack, you can’t attract. Any grace you despise, you can’t receive. 

Connect to a man of like passion today. Don’t let envy rob you of the fellowship of men of like passion.

​WHO WANTS TO BE A SPIRITONAIRE? CALL A FRIEND BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE




WHO WANTS TO BE A SPIRITONAIRE? CALL A FRIEND BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
“We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves”- Rom. 15:1

We would have no pleasure in the fall of our brothers and sisters, rather, we would comfort, pray with and encourage those that are falling until they are back to their feets marching into territories God has delivered to them.

If our delight is to celebrate the fall of our fellow believer then we are of all men most miserable. We would bear each others’ burdens, confess our weaknesses to one another and confide in ourselves without being ashamed.

The spiritual welfare of our brother is part of our statutory ministry and call. If my brother is down, I will stretch forth a lifting hand and carry him on my back so we can run together till he recovers strength to run alone back to his lane. 

We won’t compete, we would complement one another. None of us is trying to be the first in the ministry God has called us because we have the understanding that the least among us is enough to cause a global impact and invade any territory with the power of God.

We won’t complain about what we think our brothers are doing wrong as regards our believe, we would contend together until they are restored back to our fold.

We won’t compare the graces at work in us, we would only connect to the graces at work in each of us when we meet. This is how we won’t break our ranks, by connecting to one another in doing the kingdom business in love and unity.

Like soldiers, we would ensure that we leave no one as casualty to die in loneliness. We would pick them up and not be scared to call them one of us.

We don’t need any prophet from among us to tell us how well we are doing spiritually, we only need to consider how fellow believers around us are waxing in the spirit.

When we feel weary and tired, we would call ourselves up to discuss what we need to engage to be fervent again. We won’t hid anything from ourselves.

We won’t give ourselves to vain arguments and babblings because we understand that we know in parts and prophecy in parts.

If there is a reasons for us to disagree over a revelation or conviction, we would correct ourselves in love having the knowledge that there are thousands of things our faith have in common so one issue is not worth our separation and quarrels.

If you are born of God, you are my brother and sister. The same spiritual D.N.A runs in us. We are baptize into one spirit, same grace saved us.

I love you always, love me back. That’s how we roll!

TAKE HEED TO YOUR HABIT AND GIVE ATTENTION TO YOUR ROUTINES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

TAKE HEED TO YOUR HABIT AND GIVE ATTENTION TO YOUR ROUTINES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. Small disciplines repeated with consistency everyday lead to great achievements gained slowly over time.

The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions; “could have, might have and should have”. These phrases can be avoided if we give attention to what we do over time and become responsibility with consciousness of every of our actions per time.

One of the greatest mistakes in life is to be busy but not effective, to be successful in the wrong assignment and to be engaged with something without being productive in it.

It all start will your decisions and choices. Everyday is a plus.

TAKE HEED, ARE YOU EXPERIENCING GRACE OR GETTING RESULTS BEYOND YOUR SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY? BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

TAKE HEED, ARE YOU EXPERIENCING GRACE OR GETTING RESULTS BEYOND YOUR SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY? BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I was privileged years ago to serve as the state prayer secretary of Nigerian Christian Corpers Fellowship, Benue, Nigeria and some of the experiences I had in the office has thought me lessons I will never forget in my life. One of the experience would be the anchor for the caption we are about to learn at the moment.

I discovered during the tenure at a season that the demands and the fellowship activities was robbing me of my quiet time. I was close to getting engaged to the activities but far from my secret place. I was at the disposal of attending to the challenges of the people while I was becoming a dissapointment to the Holy spirit.

After some days I became conscious of the fact that I haven’t been spiritually up and doing. To my amazement, I could still reproduce some results which had blinded me for that long.

I was leading prayers in prayer meetings while I was not praying and the people under such ministrations could ascend in his presence while I could not find where I was yet I was the one holding the microphone.

I joined faith with people to pray for intervention over their challenges and God took the glory while I couldn’t join myself to the move of heaven for that time .

I laid hands on people and I saw different manifestations while the Holy spirit could not lay hold of me anymore.

You know what, many brethren told me that they desire God’s grace at work in me at that time, little did they know I was weary and losing the essence of my spirituality. 

I was often found on the pulpit while I was lost  in His presence, I was seen on the pulpit while I couldn’t find myself in the secret place 

I cried “alas!”, these results would not decloud me of my commitment and consisitency. I spoke with colleagues of like passion, they encouraged me to get back to His presence, repent of spiritual irresponsibility and stop drawing from ‘reserved’.

When we get results and attainments beyond our preparations in the secret place, sometimes it is a call for celebration but a call to caution, so we won’t be  an accident about to happen. We can’t last neither can we go far if we think we can always get results beyond the level of our intimacy with the Holy spirit.

Often times, the anointing and dimensions we experience when we are not in alignment with His will or have not been consistent in drawing virtues in His presence, may be a flow of the reserved we have accumulated over time which is bound to be expended soon.

In moments like this, dont think it to be grace beyond your commitment. Remember the spirit realm does not give room to loan or overdraft, spiritual withdrawal most times is equivalent to spiritual deposit available within us.

The measure of our desperacy will determine the level of our intimacy with Him, the level of our consistency in His presence would determine the measure of our spiritual potency.

You can overcome and avoid such experience like me. I’m concern about your spiritual growth and attainment this year like never before.

17 LESSONS I LEARNT FROM MY EXPERIENCES IN 2017 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

17 LESSONS I LEARNT FROM MY EXPERIENCES IN 2017 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
“Years don’t make a shift without a mind shift”- Awe Ayodele

“For who do you know that really knows you, knows your heart? And even if they did, is there anything they would discover in you that you could take credit for? 


Isn’t everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God? So what’s the point of all this comparing and competing? You already have all you need. 


You already have more access to God than you can handle. Without bringing either Apollos or me into it, you’re sitting on top of the world—at least God’s world—and we’re right there, sitting alongside you!”- 1 Cor. 4:7-8

1. Don’t try to achieve anything, receive your accomplishments by faith, according to the measure of grace at work in you. Remember, “no man can receive anything except it’s given Him from above”.

2. Esteem others than yourself. You can’t learn from a man you despise or think you are better than. There are dynamics in the lives of the people around you that you can learn the rudiments.

3. Our life span can only accommodate divine plans. Be accountable for every moment. Don’t procrastinate, anytime you propose a task, you will have to do the task at a time you are supposed to be doing something else.

4. Don’t allow your leisure time be your seizure time from doing things that brings you closer to the big pictures you have conceived over time.

5. The purpose and ministry call is not a call for an event, it is a lifetime call and engagement. Give all diligence to your purpose and take heed to the ministry you have receive from the Lord.

6. Be consistent. In your consistency lies the divine acceleration you desire for that conquest. Consistency is the secret that makes great men go fast and far in what they do.

7. Don’t compare your pace to that of someone else, connect with men of like passion.

8. Don’t be satisfied with any level or dimension you attain. Being impressed with your progress momentarily will make you slack and relax. Remember, there are hundreds of folks out there that are progressing faster than you can imagine.

9. The reward of hard work is more work. The more you meet a target, the more targets to meet by demands.

10. Don’t always build your convictions on the dispostions and opinions of the people around you. There is a voice within saying; “this is the way, walk therein”

11. Don’t allow your concern about the immediate make you lose sight of the future. Things can always be better if you are enthusiastic enough.

12. Be the status quo you challenge before considering the people around you and the environment. Your goal shouldn’t be to be better than others but to be better than who you were yesterday, who you are today and to be all that God has given you capacity to be tomorrow.

13. There is no excuse for giving an excuse. Instead of imagining why you can’t, conceive in volumes reasons why you can succeed in that conquest.

14. Giving up is not an option. Remember all that you have put into that idea and desire. The reason why you think you should give up can be converted to the reason why you shouldn’t.

15. Appreciate who God has made you. Spend time with yourself, medidate, look at yourself in the mirror and don’t allow your uniqueness make you shy. Remain the wonder that God has made you.

16. Learn something new daily. Be careful with your routines and habits. Read! Read!! Read!!!

17. Don’t talk beyond what you know and document your goals. Evaluate your progress time after time and note your shortcoming momentarily.

Make sure you set at least 18 targets this year. I believe in your figure and in the reality of your dream. Minds made up, heads up high and eyes on the goals. Everyday is a plus.
