Pastor Poju Oyemade Quote

To succeed in life you have to at a point, have The momentum. Things just have to fall in place for you and then you seize the moment without looking back. Getting that momentum, which really is like having the winds in your sails is the issue. To do that you must know the importance of learning. Seize every teachable moment. When people say things you don't understand ask, don't play "i know it all". What you know is what is showing in your life. If you can learn the power of self education as you go through life making the adjustments you will succeed.

Guidelines for the Monthly 3-Day Fast from the 17th of November till the 19th of November, 2011

Poju Oyemade Quote

Folks fail cos they honor the past more than the future their hearts speak to them about, they respect the traditions of the past and men's opinions more than their guts. They sit admiring others instead of honing their own gifts. In hastiness of spirit, they fail to realize the power in d Now. They live the world of their aspirations and never build altars of worship to God cos of the challenges they face in d Now. This would have pointed the way to that future they dream of.

Poju Oyemade Quote

Sometimes God allows us to go through things to show us how solid we really are. To teach us that we are stronger than we think. We fear too many things that can never destroy us. We lean on people we don't have to and its when He rocks our boat and we see that we are still standing even though we expected to perish, that we finally realise our strength. Man that is in honour and knoweth not perishes, he self destructs from fear

Pastor Poju Oyemade Quote

The Sept 11 lesson.One of the major lessons from Sept 11 attack is this, never go to sleep after a major victory and that weakness is provocative. After the collapse of communism America went to sleep, in terms of its emphasis on defense and intelligence.. They cut their budgets thinking all threats had disappeared. When you have just won a great victory never give up the life style and discipline that produced it. Don't win your wars and loose the peace

Poju Oyemade Quotes

The real definition of success is one who has improved his/her personal situation in order to be more useful and valuable to those around them. The true value of the material benefits of this decision is found in the lessons they learnt while seeking to improve their lot. The real value is not in the material things that were added to them but in the wisdom they acquired in the pursuit of this goal.

When Longsuffering is no longer a virtue

Quotes from Pastor Poju Oyemade

When u judge others as underserving of God's grace, effortless increase on ur part diminishes. What u project in ur thot life towards others grows in ur garden. Gratitude has recently been discovered by high achieving individuals as one of the most powerful tools for achieving dreams yet gratitude for your personal blessings cannot reverse the effect of ill willed thoughts towards others. Let mercy rule your heart... Pastor Pastor Poju Oyemade

The Interactive Forums Edition

I also have no express commands from God concerning relationships but I write as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy – 1Corinthians 7:25

Paul had an interesting take here in answering the questions that were raised by the churches to him concerning relational issues in their mist. He made it clear that he had no express commandment from God in response to their questions but he could apply the wisdom of God on such matters, knowing that all things might be lawful but not expedient.

8 lessons we can glean from President Obama’s life and political success - Part 1

This article is apolitical. It is also not a stamp of approval or disapproval on the moral or ethical values of President Obama. It is simply an insight into the life of one of the most prominent men in the world today. Someone who achieved a feat, that was thought practically impossible four (4) years ago. An African-American, who through his genius and communication skills literally blew open 200yrs of the American Political establishment.

Never Let a Crisis Go To Waste Again

In the wake of the financial meltdown the former Chief of Staff to President Obama, Rahm Emanuel uttered this statement. He was well criticized by the right-winged opposition but I found that statement to be loaded and factual. It was consistent with the Newtonian law of Inertia that states "every object remains in a state of rest or of uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an outside force".

That external force that compels you to act in a different way and wakes you up from a slumber is called crisis. Some have termed crisis to be the father of all things for man never discovered God through wisdom or philosophy but through his needs.

Rahm Emanuel was articulating an age-long fact that crisis gives you options, creates new possibilities, allows you room to maneuver and in some cases gives you the space you need to negotiate your way out of controlling relationships. You are forced to act otherwise or you perish. It is your refusal to change course that makes the crisis harsh and brings the lives of people to a halt.

Pride is the manifestation of a belief system that simply states “my convictions are right regardless of the facts presented before me”. It is a decision to impose your views on reality and not to learn from the facts presented to you. I have always believed that this life will only work favourably for us if we take it as a learning experience.

To Christians who by nature of our faith are “doctrinal” in our orientation we face a challenge here. The challenge is to discern the difference between a right adjustment in your belief systems and the compromise of your faith. Will we grow in the knowledge of our faith or get the initiated into tradition.

It’s easy to say think outside the box which is what is required but in practice, Christians are dogmatic in their approach to issues. Traditional thinking replaces insight into worldly affairs through the lens of the word God. The real reason a crisis comes your way is to crack the outer shell (protective) atimes, you have lived in and to allow you to pursue new options. This is not a spin on reality but the truth about life. It’s not a cliché but truth with historical backing. The cardinal sin against your destiny when a crisis appears is to desire strongly to return to status quo. What you should do instead is wave our present reality goodbye. Have its funeral service quickly let the days of mourning be short so that you can wake up to the new possibilities in your life. The three things you lose through a crisis are your limitations, weaknesses and sense of servitude. You also probably lose relationships you think you need but, subtly hold back your destiny.

These are replaced by a greater sense of independence and liberty, strength and a sense of mastery over the circumstances of life.

An experiment carried out by Jacques Loeb, M.D., PH.D a member of the Rockefeller Institute with parasites indicates that even the lowest order of life is enabled to take advantage of crisis if they are willing to shed their weaknesses and take up the mind set of an independent.

“A potted rose bush brought into a room and placed in front of a closed window. If the plants are allowed to dry out the parasites, previously wingless change to winged insects. After the metamorphosis, the animals leave the plants, fly to the window and then creep upward on the glass. It is evident that these tiny insects find that the plants on which they had been thriving were dead and that they could therefore secure nothing more to eat and drink from this source. The only method in which they could save themselves from starvation was to grow temporary wings and fly, which they did”.

If a much less order of life could grow wings to meet with the challenge, it is clear that defeat only sets in because people want to meet today’s challenges with yesterday’s abilities.

To succeed requires growth and the development of inherent abilities. Abilities unknown to anyone else but is part of your spiritual make-up.

To succeed doesn’t depend on help from without and increasing dependency but growth from within.

To succeed you must face the reality of your situation. You want to know the actual facts on the ground no matter how bad it sounds. You must not go into denial about the facts or to play the blame game. That is not leadership. Crisis always calls for leadership.

If you hold a leadership position within an organisation don’t delegate a crisis. Take control of it and resolve it.

The first law of success therefore is, GRIP IT. Don’t deny its existence, embrace it. Don’t pray that it departs; embrace it in order to consume it. A crisis will help you with the hubris problem, that is, the arrogance of success. It will put you in touch with your humanity and the weaknesses and limitations you want to grow out of. If you respond rightly you will be a much stronger knowledgeable and liberated person with an additional grace of humility to your advancement.

I will sign off with these two principles embrace crisis and read it. Approach it with a heart of gratitude embracing it as an instrument of growth and then read through the lives of other people who faced similar challenges and surmounted them. Read until you are ready, your present situation in the lives of others and then you will know the options that are available into you.. Pastor Poju Oyemade
