Preparing For Year 2022 was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 26th of December 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
What you say becomes your experience. That is how powerful Words are. Therefore learn to speak right words, and also align your actions to your words.
Year 2022 is what you call it!
Most times, the problem of the believer is not that of lack of knowledge, but that of lack of corresponding actions.
Your knowing translates to nothing until you are able to translate your intentions to actions.
Until something is done, nothing can happen.
It is not enough to have good intentions! Your good intentions don’t count; it is your actions that count.
Two Things You Need To Make Year 2022 Great
- Your very strong decisions.
Decisions help you build a strong will
- Your corresponding actions.
This is what actually translates your desires to results.
Some Decisions We Need To Make For Year 2022
1. Decide to increase your commitment to God
And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil. Exodus 23:25-26 (KJV)
There is always a reward for serving God.
The bread that God blesses will never spoil or get exhausted.
The blessing of your bread causes it to multiply (that’s what happened in the feeding of the 5000 by Jesus – Jesus blessed the bread and it multiplied).
True prosperity is not in having enough for yourself, it is in been able to meet the needs of others.
Your service to God guarantees your good health!
2. Decide to improve your library
Decide to maximize your time in 2022. Lay aside every distraction and time wasters in your life. The time wasters in your life could be movies, games, social media, etc.
Decide to increase your learning power in 2022.
Learn to convert every gifting you have to money. Package your gifting and monetize it.
Decide to be wealthy
3. Decide to increase in your giving
There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and [there is] that withholdeth more than is meet, but [it tendeth] to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:24-25 (KJV)
It’s literally impossible to increase your earning without increasing your giving; this is because Kingdom prosperity is predicated on your giving.
The seed is for planting for the days to come. Do not consume your seed!
Once your seed is in the ground, your harvest must come.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. Mark 4:26-29 (KJV)
We make decisions, and those decisions in turn make you.
In 2022, ensure you satisfy all levels of giving
- First fruits
- Giving to your parents
- Giving to your pastor
- Giving to those in need
- Giving to Kingdom projects
