Bishop David Oyedepo is a renowned Minister of God and Founder of Winners Chapel Pentecostal Church whose headquarters was located in Lagos.
The Man of God shared on Facebook and YouTube how He got creative wisdom from God that he had made him what his ministry became up till now. He continued that what every man needed in life was the guidance and direction of the Holy Spirit. We have to receive it as we move forward in life. The inspiration in Deuteronomy 34: 9 and other verses initiated something differently in his ministry. Bishop Oyedepo recorded that the Lord said to him that He wanted Him to have a ministry and the ministry had to take a different shape than what had existed before.
The Bishop asked ways and methods to use to come up with the ministry. God, as recorded by the man of God, led him to Pastor Enoch Adeboye to lay His hands on him for impartation and release of anointing. Then he would be released with clear vision too. The Bishop went to Pastor Adeboye for ministration on the wisdom that God promised on the 17th of September 1983.
According to him, nothing was received that day but the spirit of light (creative wisdom). That day, he said he received clear differences in his ministry and how to make clear differences in the lives of people and the kingdom of God. Also, he said that nothing was spoken but shown the revelation of how his ministry would be established, and nothing was taught but how his ministry would be working in the heavenly realm.
Bishop Oyedepo said that God would be a printer to the greater in heaven. In 190, Bishop David Oyedepo had another encounter with a man of God who imparted a creative mind in him and received more clear wisdom and power to become what he was. The force of God’s wisdom came upon him and gave him the right way to follow in his ministry. The release of the spirit of wisdom came upon him and his life. Then he started the ministry as God directed.
Pastor Oyedepo gave some ways of sustaining the operations of wisdom. The ways are discussed below.
1. Maintaining the fear of the Lord as your lifestyle.
The fear of God matters most in the sustenance of the operation of the wisdom of God. Bishop Oyedepo said that the Winner’s churches and worship centers could be many because they were laid on the foundation of God. The other investments such as universities could be at stand up till now because they were established on the foundation of fear of God. The Bible could record the story of Joseph as a man of fear of God. In everything, we should fear God. Read and meditate on 1 Corinthians 7: 1; Luke 1: 50; Mathew 10: 28; Deuteronomy 5: 28; Proverbs 8: 13; Psalm 34: 11.
2. Maintaining a meek spirit as your lifestyle.
The traits of meekness and humility are inseparable. To maintain the sustenance of operations of wisdom, you need to show meekness and humility. Daniel showed this during the interpretation of dreams, and God lifted him up. No one can receive anything from God until they are given.
According to the man of God, every good thing comes from God. By doing that, God will still do more. Let meekness and humility be our priority. Read and meditate on Romans 12; 2 Timothy 2; James 1; and 1 Peter 1.
3. Maintaining an effective altar of prayers as your lifestyle.
The effective altar of prayer is essential if you want to maintain the sustaining operation of wisdom. In prayers, according to Bishop Oyedepo, God will still reveal the next to you about the ministry. When you communicate with God, He will still discuss new things with you about your vision and future. It is vital to keep praying to receive more intellect, wisdom, and understanding. Read and meditate on Ephesians 1; Romans 12; Colossians 1; Colossians 12.
4. Maintaining yourself to purposeful and focused mentorship.
Nobody can become what he or she has in mind in the absence of mentorship. There are two major types of mentorship, namely direct mentorship and indirect mentorship. A direct mentorship is someone who counsels and advises you directly while an indirect mentorship is someone whose lifestyle teaches you something. To sustain your operations of wisdom, you need mentorship, either directly or indirectly. Read and meditate on I Thessalonians 1; Colossians 3: 16; 1 Corinthians 11: 1; 1 Timothy 4: 12.
